Jeanna was awesome. We arrived late and she gave us the grand tour of her beautiful place. She then took our order for scratch breakfast in the morning so she could make sure we got all the food we wanted. She showed us to our room and walked us thru all the amentias including or own thermoset. When I booked the room, Jenna told me all of the rooms had been remodeled, and yes they were. We stayed in the Rose room and room was very clean and decorated very nicely with lots of nick-nacks. Great night of sleep, the bed was very comfortable. The room had really good room darkening shades even Tho one of our windows faced east, no light came in. Went downstairs for breakfast and Jenna had fresh coffee ( I am not a coffee drinker but the coffee was awesome), an assortment of teas, orange juice, apple juice, cram apple juice. She then brought out this huge omelet, polish sausage, and lots of fresh fruit. More food then you could eat. Jenna made the whole experience just awesome. We were celebrating our 41st wedding anniversary and could not have picked a better place. 5 stars. Thank you Jenna.

This is the second time that I booked a room at Whispering Pines for a writing retreat to work on my second monograph. I thoroughly enjoyed the breakfasts, the upgrade to the rooms, and the outdoor seating areas. Jeanna is a fabulous host who has consistently accommodated my lactose intolerance in the breakfasts. She is also a great conversationalist, who s very knowledgeable about the town, surrounding attractions, and eateries . She has never steered me wrong. The staff is equally helpful and friendly.

The B & B is located within walking distance, for the abled bodied, to the Arbor Day Lodge and Park. If one chooses to drive, it is a 5-minute drive at most. If you want to engage in other wellness activities, there is a hot tub on the premises and plenty of space on the property to do yoga and other exercises.

I chose to have my 50-ish Birthday Brunch at Whispering Pines. Jeanna and her staff provided a great buffet to serve 30 people. Everyone had a great time and took lots of pictures.

Very charming and COZY!! My husband and I stayed @ the Roost in the Barn. We had a wonderful time. Jeanna is a gracious host with an amazing talent for making you feel like a part of the family. The land is beautiful and just perfect for a weekend getaway.
Very accommodating and just what this hubby and wife needed while the kids were with the grandparents :)

Property = The land was gorgeous and fit in very well with the community.
Lodging = We had reservations for the Barn Roost. We were expecting an improved barn with a rustic feel. What we found was uneven flooring, garage sale 70s furniture, and very dim lighting. It was not inviting.
House = cluttered with antiques, that gave it a very heavy feel
Food = we were really looking forward to the food because people we met said it was really good. That's not what we found- burnt granola, overly sweet coffee cake, heavy eggs, and salty potatoes.
Environment = we ordered the s'mores package expecting the fire pit to have family fun making them; what we got was premade s'mores and no fire. We expected a hammock to have a little relax and cuddle with the little one; what we got was a hammock that sunk into a puddle when you used it.

We are not bed and breakfast people. Based on the reviews, we expected some character but not the stereotypical B&B experience. If we had known that's what it is, we wouldn't have booked it. We didn't end up staying. We weren't expecting any refund but were given a 50% refund, which was very kind.

Jeanna is a wonderful host and is very welcoming the minute you walk in the door. She has chocolate chip cookies and tea and lemonade always available. The cookies are amazing!! The rooms are clean, cozy and quiet for a comfortable stay. You will not want to miss her breakfasts as you are sure to be full and impressed with her selections. If you are wanting to venture out for activities or meals, ask Jeanna she is a wealth of knowledge and always willing to help recommend places. Definitely would return if ever in the area.

We stayed at the Whispering Pines for one night on June 14, 2023. We stayed in the Rose Suite, located upstairs. The suite was roomy and comfortable with a minifridge, shower/tub combo, and king size bed. We had a great night's sleep and arose rested. Out host Jeanna was charming and served us a delicious breakfast on the ground floor porch where we enjoyed the sunshine, breeze, and views of the impressive pines which surround the property. Thank you Jeanna!

This was my second trip to Whispering Pines. We have been treated above and beyond both times. I have gluten allergies and Jeanna is quick to make sure that I have wonderful breakfast meals that meet my needs. The pancakes on this last visit were so good, I asked for the recipe.
Nebraska City has beautiful foliage and fun sights to see. We toured an Orchard and picked apples on our last visit which the children loved. This trip was adults only and we did wine tastings. Whispering Pines is easily accessible to anything in town.

We had a very good stay at the Whispering Pines. The innkeeper, Jeanna, was very responsive to questions in advance. We booked online and got what we expected: a very good B&B at a reasonable price. The bed was comfortable, the shower hot, and the breakfast (of a frittata with potatoes after a homemade granola and yoghurt) was excellent. We would highly recommend this B&B. It’s not true luxury, but a very good experience.

Wonderful, wonderful, wonderful! My wife and I were looking for a relaxing play to stay en route home from a quick trip north for family functions, and we found it at Whispering Pines B&B! From arrival to departure, we felt welcomed and relaxed. Our host was gracious, warm, and attentive to our comfort; our guestroom comfortable and cozy and quiet; and the grounds beautiful and peaceful. Of note, we greatly enjoyed the wrap-around porch -- the swing into the early evening and breakfast in the morning. Needless to say, we will be visiting again!

This was our 4th stay at Whispering Pines and each time is fabulous. The property is beautiful, the food out of this world but what really makes it special is Jeanna! Visiting her place is like staying with family. Always nice to have a conversation with her at breakfast. She is full of great information about local places, things to do, etc. We will be back again-

We are fine with you bringing your 14 yr old granddaughter! As another guest suggested, when choosing, just keep in mind which rooms can accommodate more than 2 guests. I'm happy to make recommendations.
