A Memorable Thanksgiving

4.4 on December 14, 2014

My family needed a place to gather for Thanksgiving this year, and Whispering Pines was the perfect solution for us. Every room was tastefully decorated for Christmas and the tree was beautiful. There was room for four different families to spread out: and for each member to have space for his/her own activity. It was the first Thanksgiving in my memory that everyone (13 people) were able to fit around one table and take part in the same conversation.. The kids were not anxious to get up and run off because they were included. I look forward to my next visit!

Great experience with awesome service!

I stayed for a 2 night stay while in town for business. It was my first time at a B and B, and had no idea what to expect. It was a very nice experience. The service was great, food was exceptional and the accomodations were comfortable and relaxing.

Loved the stay

We stayed in a barn! The rustic decor made the barn so comfortable. We had peach enchiladas for breakfast and they were wonderful. We will go back!

Awesome Family Spot!

We rented the whole house for an extended family get together and had the best time!! The grounds are beautiful and our 5 young grand kids had a great time outside as did the adults. We especially enjoyed the wraparound porch where we ended up eating all of our meals. Jeanna was very accommodating! Definitely would return!!

A Room with a View

We had planned on staying only one night at Whispering Pines, but we liked it so much we decided to spend a second night there. We stayed in two different rooms (Traveler's and the Barn), so we had a taste of two totally different accommodations. We enjoyed both very much! Jeanna was quite helpful in answering our questions about the area and giving us ideas of places to visit and things to do. We loved the spacious grounds, lovely trees, and the proximity of Whispering Pines to places of interest in the area. It is a relaxing and peaceful place to stay. I felt pampered and comfortable there.

Fabulous stay in gorgeous accommodation

This is just an amazing place to visit. Our hostess Jeanna went to great trouble to make sure our stay was perfect. Each item of furniture or decoration has a story behind it and Jeanna has collected things from all over the world. Breakfast was fabulous and we ate outside on the porch watching the hummingbirds. The grounds and gardens are very pretty and well taken care of. The rooms are wonderful and filed with incredible treasures, even the internet connection was excellent. Hope to return again soon.

Wonderful surprise in Nebraska City, NE

5 on May 30, 2014

We stayed at Whispering Pines B&B for 4 nights, when we came to Nebraska City for my husband's 50th high school reunion. Jeanna, the inn keeper, is so friendly and makes you feel very comfortable and welcome. She cooks delicious, mouth watering breakfast every morning, using her own recipes. Every time we returned after sightseeing or reunion events, she greeted us and offered a cold drink. Home made cookies were always available. We stayed in the Rose room. The decor was Victorian, but very comfortable. We had our own private bath. The grounds are spacious and beautiful. Coming from Arizona, it was a real treat to have grass, flowers, ponds and trees. We sat on the large porch a couple of afternoons between other activities. There is a spa on the deck also. The experience was wonderful and would definitely stay there again if we get back to Nebraska City. We have already recommended it to my husband's sister when she attends her reunion next year.

A great place to stay for business travel

Well within the lodging and M&IE rate for US government travel. Comfortable space for work. Great internet speed and connectivity. Very relaxing, much better than staying in a chain hotel.

A Wonderful Weekend

A lovely home, a gracious hostess, delicious food, a beautiful setting - what's not to like about a stay at Whispering Pines Bed & Breakfast!

Romantic Getawy

This was our first time at a bed and breakfast, and it was perfect! The whole experience was fun and romatic, as we were celebrating our 15 year anniversary. Loved the food, the room, the decor and the view. We cant wait to return and bring the kids next time, and adventure Nebraska City. Paul & Victoria of Omaha

Just recently updated in Winter 2011, the Arbor, decorated in rich tones, brings in the local Nebraska City Arbor themes of trees, apples and wines. This cozy room offers a king size four poster iron bed and private bath with shower. The extra large space also provides a daybed for hanging out (or as an extra bed), a desk, and 19” flat screen TV connected to cable. You’ll find an exposed limestone foundation wall along the stairway and a wooden support post in the middle of this downstairs room, both typical in Victorian Era construction. They both add a little character to the room and better

Victoria’s is a very secluded and cozy room with a private entrance into the home just off the deck. It has a queen size bed and a small sitting area with an electric fireplace for warmth and ambiance. The antique armoire and settee provide function and a little piece of history. You’ll only have fifteen steps up to the outdoor hot tub and deck. Said to be the original kitchen in this 1878 farmhouse, it’s now under the current kitchen, so you’ll wake to the smells of breakfast drifting to your room. The extra large private bathroom has a lovely tub and shower.

The Traveler’s is an extra large room with a King size bed and a private bath with shower. The sink is made from an old gentleman’s chest. Curl up in the cozy chair and half and read a book or dine at the table. The twin sleeper hidden in the Chair and a Half can be made up for an extra bed. This room is the entire North side of the upstairs and it overlooks the gardens, has many windows with a lot of light. Decorated in rich reds, yellows and greens, you'll be sure to "travel" somewhere as you explore all the antique maps, travel books and photos. The exposed brick from the house’s chimney adds a little character and the antique 1857 Missionary desk is available in case you have the need to catch up on some writing. You can also enjoy the new 26” TV with cable on a motion arm; viewable from most anywhere in the room. Finally, this room has personal climate control, you control the heating and air conditioning.

The Rose room says romance! In this extra large room, you'll be welcomed by an iron king bed from which you have a wonderful view.
