Wonderful and charming little getaway

4.4 on May 09, 2018

All of the property is so beautiful and full of life from the trees, flowers and pond. It’s stress-free, inviting and relaxing. Jeanna is full of helpful information and is an incredible chef. Would definitely recommend this sweet, tucked-away gem.

Great getaway in Southeast Nebraska.

Whispering Pines is a great place to get away. It is in a secluded area but close to everything. Jeanna was very welcoming and very informative, not only did she give us ideas for the weekend but also for upcoming events in the area. Great recommendation for dinner. Beautiful house and surroundings. Can't wait to go back.

Perfect getaway!

Whispering Pines is the perfect getaway in southeast Nebraska. The innkeeper Jeanna goes out of her way to ensure that you’re stay is perfect! A timeless gem with all the modern amenities! Cannot wait to return this summer when the grounds are in full bloom!

Anniversary Stay

5 on March 14, 2018

We stayed at Whispering Pines during our honeymoon 25 years ago in 1993. Even though the Inn is now under new ownership, it is still a B & B and was a treat to stay at again! There have been changes and improvements, all for the good. The hot tub was fun to use and gaze at the stairs in the cool of a March evening in Nebraska. We took a walk around the grounds before breakfast. The innkeeper was very nice and welcoming and her staff were also very helpful. Would definitely stay here again!

Great Place to Stay!

We stayed for my husband’s birthday and it was the perfect place! Jeanna is wonderful, and so willing to do whatever it takes to make her guests happy and welcome. The B&B was BEAUTIFUL... 24/7 hot tub, and very clean rooms. Her cooking was amazing!!! I am usually not a breakfast fan, but had to indulge in her food. There is PLENTY to do in the area— history and nature lovers need to explore the Arbor Day Lodge. There are art galleries, places to shop, the Missouri River is close by and Omaha is within driving distance. What a great weekend. Can’t wait to bring the kids back with us one of these days so we can all go pick apples at the orchard!

Successful Sweet 16 at Whispering Pines!

Repeat Stay

This was our second stay and enjoyed it as much as the first. Jeanna is the consummate host. She is familiar with the area and the sites to visit. The accommodations are unique and clean, the breakfast and chocolate chip cookies are terrific. My wife and I recommend this B&B to all staying in the area. Thanks Jeanna!

The extra large space also provides a daybed for hanging out (or as an extra bed), a desk, and 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 yet, are holding up this old house. An electric fireplace provides extra heat or just ambiance.
