Our first time staying in a bed and breakfast, and we were very impressed. The food was scrumptious, rooms clean, great conversation, and a beautiful setting. Enjoyed the view of the acreage with the 200 year old oak tree, the neat waterfall, and yard. It would be a perfect retreat in the fall when the leaves are changing. Would definitely recommend it to anyone. Lorin & Dorothy

My husband and I thoroughly enjoyed staying in this quaint and charming establishment. Jeanna was so welcoming, knowledgable and a delightful hostess. We especially enjoyed the breakfasts on the porch as the view of the 200 year old Burr Oak tree and gardens was so relaxing. We would definitely stay here again!

This was my first experience with a bed and breakfast and I have to say, I will struggle to ever stay in a hotel/motel again! This was the perfect choice for the surprise "stay" I had planned for my mother. Our hostess was exceptional and made the experience comfortable as well as memorable. Our accommodations were in a barn about 100 yards from the main house. The decor was what I would describe as "rustic farm" which made it unique as well as fun, and yet it had all of the "creature comforts" you could want to make the stay pleasurable. Our family grew up enjoying many years of camping, so when the innkeeper offered up an outdoor fire with a couples of roasting sticks and a s'mores package, I knew this was the perfect place for us. The home as well as the barn we stayed in was on a beautifully landscaped yard and was great for picture taking and relaxing. We enjoyed a fabulous breakfast served on antique china out on the wrap around porch listening to the birds sing and watching the sun rise over the barn, shine through the 200 year old trees and set the perfect stage for kicking off the next leg of our travel plans. I have to say this unique 130 year old home and our hostess Jeanna, was what made the experience unforgettable! Can't wait to go again!

My husband and I recently stayed at Whispering Pines. We live in the city and were looking for a quiet get away. We found it at Whispering Pines. We spent much time reading and relaxing on the wonderful porch at the main house. Jeanna does a wonderful job attending to so many details that make the stay enjoyable - from cookies and tea or lemonade upon arrival to spa robes in the rooms. The food was outstanding and we were able to enjoy a breakfast on the covered porch on our last morning. We hope to return!
