Thank you, Jeanna, for working with me to give my friend such a lovely time. She returned to work much more relaxed! We enjoyed breakfast on the porch immensely. The hummingbirds were a treat. We truly loved watching the swallows and dragon flies as we sat in the hot tub. My friend had the most scrumptious massage outside on your deck. The fountain burbled and the leaves rustled. Just what she needed! Thanks again! We shall return.

This was our second stay with Jeanna and enjoyed it completely. Jeanna was welcoming and treated us a family more than as a guest. Would recommend this B&B to anyone staying in the Nebraska City area. Thanks again and look forward to our next stay.

Check-in was easy and a wonderful way to get more knowledge about Whispering Pines. We were given vegan bars and they were absolutely amazing! Jeanna was so helpful and even gave us the recipe for the bars. Breakfast was also very tasty! Overall, we had a great, relaxing nights stay! Would definitely go back!
