We took a trip to San Diego and then up the coast to Big Sur, then over to see the giant sequoias. We were very lost at midnight & just happened upon this place. I believe her new was Karen, she was at the front desk working late (luckily for us) and told us to come on in and rented... More

Great location!!! Beautiful view, friendly staff, Karen was very nice and helpful. The rooms was clean and comfortable (209-210). Breakfast very tasteful and sitting on the deck with the view great way to start our day. Tubing on the river was wonderful, we really enjoy our trip to Kernville, we will be back.

We loved our stay at the Whispering Pines Lodge! Louise seems instantly like an old friend. The rooms and the main lodge have a cute and restful rustic decor. Breakfast on the deck with a view of the trees is such a wonderful way to start the day! And the view of the river from the pool area is fabulous!... More

We've stay here a few times and really like it. River rooms are the best, we really liked 105 which is right next to the pool. The view out back is terrific, not only the Kern river (which is set back maybe 50') bit also a small creek right below the deck, from which we were able to witness a... More

Beautiful room, great location. I highly recommend. Plus the breakfast is not bad either. Check out the nearby Miracle Hot Springs if you can. Great place for getting away with a good book or a good partner! HA!

The lodges we past before we found the whispering pines lodge were rundown & had no vacancy & the workers weren't very friendly. We... More

Upon check-in we were not told that there wasn't a telephone in the room, nor a pay phone near the room. This got my wife and I thinking what if we need emergency services? How would they find us if we couldn't provide the address? What if we needed additional towels, or bath soap. We would have to walk up... More

My sister-in-law and I arrived in Kernville on a Friday afternoon for a weekend of hiking. The hotel that we had arranged to stay at in town was horrible. Our room was filthy and the whole place was very rundown. Fortunately for us we were able to find a room at Whispering Pines Lodge for a very reasonable rate considering... More

we stayed for two nights and for sure the lovely Kern River outside the balcony is a lullaby but I think it is over priced and the extras could use some upgrading. A newer mattress would have been welcome . The decor is confusing, a mixture of Victorian meets western lodge The coffee maker in the room is not the... More
