We've been traveling to the Pigeon Forge/Gatlinburg area for over 40 years so we have considerable knowledge of the area, lodging, and attractions. This was the first time we stayed at Whispering Pines, but will not be the last. The staff was helpful and courteous from the time I called to reserve a condo until we checked out. We traveled with three granddaughters, two of whom were teens and one was a pre-teen. The two-bedroom condo provided plenty of room and privacy for everyone. Having two bathrooms was wonderful. We had a full-size kitchen and living room and tvs in both bedrooms and living room. The living room had a pull-out sofa bed and three recliners. The unit was decorated and felt like home. Comfortable beds made sleeping great. We enjoyed having breakfast on the ample balcony which had not only a table and chairs but two rockers. Our unit was classified as handicapped but the one draw back of the condo was that the tub was not handicap accessible. The grab bars were not located where they could be reached and the tub was was too deep and wide . Although a shower stool was provided, I found it nearly impossible to get into the shower and in fact, severely bruised my leg while attempting to climb over the edge of the tub. The other bathtub was too narrow for the shower stool. Placement of the grab bars was definitely not designed by anyone familiar with handicap needs. Otherwise, the condo was fine for those of us who are handicapped. We will be returning to Whispering Pines. Kids enjoyed outdoor pool and lazy river. Indoor pool is under construction.
