“Beautiful.”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 25 July 2006

My mother, 5 yr old daughter , 12 yr old cousin, and myself found this place by accident. Our $234.00/night condo in Panama City was filthy. Had not been cleaned at all. The manager was very unprofessional and rude. So we refused to stay there and ran across Whispering Pines instead. The manager called it a 'Fishing Cabin'. For $94.00/ night and being a 'Fishing Cabin' it was awesome. It was clean! Very secluded. It felt like we were in a rain forest because we were in the woods. We had a blast walking in the bay finding different things in the water. The beach on the Gulf was not far to walk. We chose to drive down to the park and swim in the ocean there. We had a wonderful time. Only one thing we didn't really like, were the mosquitoes. So don't forget your bug spray.

  • Liked — Being secluded. I could go outside in my underwear!
  • Disliked — Lots of mosquitoes. But we were in the woods near water.
  • Tips/Secrets — Bring your bug spray and water shoes to walk out in the bay. Lots of little creatures that are hard to see.
  • Stayed July 2006, travelled with family

4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 20 July 2006

In June 2006, my husband, myslef ,my sister and herfiance stayed at whispering pines. The owner ( David) is a bit gruff on the phone, but very easy going and laid back. We were allowed to bring our dogs( at no additional charge) and when we left them on the porch, they put them away for us. The cabin was better than I expected with a deck AND a screened in porch. The cabin was probably 8 feet off the ground so you feel like you are in a tree house. Since it is located on the cape, it was walking distance to the bay. There are 4 cabins, and we never really knew anyone else was there.
I would recommend doing all of your beach going at the national park-- it costs $4, but the water is gorgeous and the beach is nearly deserted. Loved it.
Port St. Joe is maybe 15 minutes away and easy to get a bite to eat or fishing gear.( we caught crabs right out of the gulf at Salinas Park, and shrimp in the little bayous around the Cape)
Overall, we loved our stay and we intend to go back as soon as we can

  • Liked — You felt like the only ones there, and it was better than I expected
  • Disliked — No real check-in and payment. I like to get hings out of the way and we had to wait a day to pay
  • Tips/Secrets — Bring your own pillows, and some extra towels. Keep pets in kennels when gone, go to the National Park instead of public access. Prettier water
