We moved to Silver Bay in 2007, but have stayed at Whispering Pines Motel often in the past years and we highly recommend this motel to anyone looking for a place to stay!. Whispering Pines is a wonderful place to stay - warm, cozy, always super clean and really nice people. It is like coming home! Tucked in the woods you can really hear the pines "whispering". Here you're close to Lake Superior with a good view from the motel, hiking trails are everywhere, waterfalls abound, lots of super good restaurants in the area, and you can watch deer feed behind motel in the winter. Snowmobiling in this area is absolutely fantastic with more groomed trails than anywhere else. December 2008 has graced us with lots of glorious snow for snowmobiling, snowshoeing, skiing, etc.. If you want a really nice place to stay, this is it! Come on up to this winter wonderland!
