Whispering Pines Bed & Breakfast
Ranked #5 of 5 High Falls B&B and Inns
Reviewed 17 July 2005

This four room bed and breakfast in the woods provided the lovely getaway we needed. First, the rooms - we stayed in the Starlight Room and enjoyed it, but should we return, we would stay in the bigger Cherry Room. Though the Cherry Room is off the dining and common area, it is spacious and has a separate shower and large Jacuzzi bath. The Starlight Room is more cozy with a private Jacuzzi tub right in the room that has a handheld shower head (so you'd better be intimate with who you're staying with, as the tub is not enclosed!). The Starlight Room also has a private bath. The Pine Room, off the front door on the 1st floor, seems nice and has a private bathroom, but the Forest Room's (2nd floor) bathroom is down the hall. There's a Jacuzzi out back which we didn't check out. The innkeepers, Celia and HD are helpful yet unintrusive - they stock the main room with brochures, newspapers, menus, helpful hints, etc. and are available, but leave you to your independence. Their 2 outdoor dogs are friendly, well-behaved and also not intrusive - in fact, we looked forward to coming back and having them greet us! The breakfasts were delicious, homemade and plentiful - incorporating fresh foods and produce. Note that they discourage eating in your rooms, we had brought a cooler of snacks and drinks and anytime we ate, we came downstairs, no big deal. Also, you get no TV reception here, but each room comes equipped with a TV/vcr and there's a big video library; having no TV was a nice escape. The location is nicely situated within 2 miles of High Falls and a few miles of New Paltz. Be sure to follow the directions (esp when they say to track mileage) on their website exactly - it is easy to miss turns and get lost in the woods. We hiked at both Mohonk Preserve and Lake Minnewaska, ate at good restaurants in the neighboring towns (check out Egg's Nest!), shopped at Crafts People in Hurley (easier than going to miscellaneous pottery studios on the Pottery Trail) and (since we were on the Shawangunk Wine Trail) visited a winery (Rivendell). Overall, a pleasant retreat (much more harmonious to us than the nearby overpriced, jacket-requiring Mohonk Mountain House!)
