Whispering Pines is a contemporary, cozy chalet surrounded by 50 acres of private woods on all sides. Cathedral ceiling, skylights, finished wood floors, an interior balcony between our two upstairs bedrooms and lots of windows everywhere create a spacious, light-filled atmosphere. The fireplace is kept ablaze in spring and fall; all summer, the woodland breezes wander the house through open windows and doors. All bedrooms are air conditioned mid-May through mid-September.
Your room is your private domain, and we do not intrude upon it. When you check in, you will find your room and bathroom freshly cleaned, the bed made with fresh linens, and a set of fresh towels in your room. Should you stay with us for a while, fresh towels will be left outside your door every other day. Linens are changed once a week, but fresh sheets are left in your room in case you need to change them. Your bathroom will be supplied with toilet tissue, soap and shampoo, but not with a hairdryer or other bathroom supplies.
Our housekeeper tidies the rooms and checks the supplies every Saturday. And of course, if you need anything, all you have to do is ask.
Relaxation is key to our breakfast, too. We think "getaway"
means not having to get up in the morning! That's why we leave our self-serve breakfast
out from 8:30 until 11:00 a.m., so you can sleep late if you want to. Our cornucopia buffet
gives you a lot to choose from: a main course, five or six kinds of cereals, local
fresh fruit, bakery fresh breads, English muffins, specialty cheeses, coffee cake, gourmet
jams, coffee, tea, milk, and orange juice. Relaxation is key to our breakfast,
too. We think "getaway" means not having to get up in the morning!

Our breakfast buffet is served on Saturday, Sunday, and holiday mornings. Please note that we serve a Continental Breakfast on weekday mornings.
