Whispering Pines Bed and Breakfast
Ranked #1 of 1 Dellroy B&B and Inns
Reviewed 14 May 2013

My husband and I stayed two nights at Whispering Pines Bed and Breakfast for our honeymoon. Due to our work schedule, we were unable to go far so Whispering Pines was the perfect place. It was a very peaceful relaxing place to recharge after planning a wedding. We stayed in the Honeymoon Suite and it was very spacious and had everything we needed. The owners of the Bed and Breakfast are absolutely wonderful and are very helpful. They thought of everything, including soft music in the room, and snacks at night. We also enjoyed the fact that there was no TV in the room and even turned off our cellphones. This was our first time staying at a bed and breakfast but will not be our last time staying at Whispering Pines. We are already planning on making it our yearly place to stay to recharge our batteries.

Room Tip: The Honeymoon suite is perfect for any couple wanting to re-connect.

I've stayed at a lot of B&B's, and Whispering Pines is one of the finest, if not the finest, places I've ever stayed. The rooms, service, and dining are top notch. For wine tasting, with an Amish backdrop, I can't think of any other place I'd rather stay.

This is our third time at the B&B and not our last. Beautiful surroundings and the room was lovely. Breakfast was very tasty and the hosts are very nice and pleasant to be around. There is music playing softly in the background and snacks in the evening. You can sit in the comfy chairs by the fireplace for hours listening to the birds outside and than take a relaxing bath with a glass of wine--heaven!

Room Tip: I recommend the Willow Room or Victorian Rose-both are so pretty and romantic!

We love staying at Whispering Pines. The rooms are so beautiful. Each one is different in decor but just lovely. Beds are extremely comfortable and the bedding is exceptional. It is so quiet there that reading a book and soaking in the jaccuzzi is so relaxing. The breakfast in the morning is exceptional and really special. The Inn keepers are friendly. We will definately be back. A great place for re-connecting with who you love.

This was our first experience at a B&B, and ever since we were given a gift certificate from my brother and his wife, who were actually engaged at this B&B in 2004, we were very excited to try it out for ourselves. We drove in from Pittsburgh and arrived about 30 minutes prior to check-in. We decided since the website had no policy regarding early arrivals we would take a chance and see if our room was available.

The keypad on the front door had a post it with a four digit code on it, assuming it was for guests, we let ourselves in. Linda was startled to see us, to say the least, and practically scolded us, saying the post-it on the door was for the massage therapist, not guests, and we should always ring the doorbell....She then suggested we go "take a ride" until our 3 o'clock check in, or sit and wait until our room was ready. We were a bit put off so we decided to leave and come back. After driving around aimlessly on country roads for about 40 minutes we arrived back at the B&B around 3:10 and were told her husband was making some "last minute repairs to the room", so we waited in the great room for a few moments until we were escorted to the garden room.

Upon entering, Linda showed us how to work the whirlpool tub, fireplace and noticed the lamp on the fireplace was broken/not working. Hmm, a small let down but not a huge deal. After exploring the room we found there was no balcony like we were promised on the website, and only one bath robe hanging in the closet. We appreciate antiques and the styling throughout the B&B but were not necessarily "crazy" about our room, however we decided we would make the best of it. A few hours later ordered dinner from a local restaurant suggested by the innkeeper- We called and placed our order, then called Linda to see if she could let us know when the food arrived, she seemed bothered by this request and even mentioned that she was busy with something, but said that yes, she would let us know. After that phone call, we felt a little uncomfortable so we decided to get dressed and go downstairs to wait for the food ourselves. (The food was very good, so that was a plus).

The next morning, we were almost relieved to eat our breakfast and get on our way. We went downstairs and we were served a delicious breakfast of baked pears, apple cinnamon pancakes, scrambled eggs and sausage. This was nice...

When we checked out, we told Linda we had a gift certificate we wanted to use and she immediately became upset and firmly told us that when using a gift certificate, you should ALWAYS tell the business up front. Her husband Bill, who was very nice and addressed us by name a few times, said that they get charged from the credit card company if they have to change the amount, which is understandable, however- the website said nothing about gift certificates when we made our reservation. We are both young professionals and felt like children being scolded by strangers. It was almost embarrassing and we were glad to leave.

Upon arriving home and recounting our experience... I decided to look up the original reservation confirmation I received in my email...Only to find that we had booked the Jasmine Room....NOT the Garden Room....So, it's no wonder we were not crazy about the decor and the room had no balcony. The B&B was clearly not full as we saw a few empty rooms, so I have no idea as to why we were unable to stay in the room we had originally requested. This experience left much to be desired, we will not be return customers.

Rather than respond to your individual issues, I would like to say I'm sorry you had those issues. After 23 years of innkeeping, we know things can happen that are out of our control. We always try to do our best but at times we may miss the mark and for this I apologize.

Once again the select registry guided us to another B&B treasure. My husband and I had a mini trip here at whispering pines. Linda's famous cookies were waiting for us when we arrived. After riding over 2 hours, coffee and a cookie were just perfect! The photos online really do nothing for the entire property. The downstairs great room is full of games and local attractions as well as menus and dining options. Hot water for tea, coffee and snacks were ready in the kitchenette area. We were the only guests there so we toured the other rooms. My suggestions for anyone trying to decide on a room, get a king bed and our favorite rooms were the oak room and the honeymoon suite. Don't get me wrong, the other rooms were all beautiful but when we stay next time we will be in one of those 2.. Linda made dinner reservations for us at the hart mansion. Not only was the dinner super the place is amazing! Also if you are a wine enthusiast, visit Al-Bi winery right down the road! You will glad you did!! Breakfast was one that we will talk about when comparing B&B's! Outstanding! We can't wait to visit again when the weather is warm and we can enjoy more of the lake area!

Room Tip: Oak room or honeymoon suite were our favorite rooms.

We enjoyed a wonderful 2 night stay at Whispering Pines B&B. Being the middle of January, the weather was snowy and icy. The walkways were always cleared and salted. Hot water and coffee were always ready and the sun room always welcoming. We used our electric fireplace in our room a lot to snuggle up next to. Mattress was nice and firm, we could tell that it must be new!

Upon arrival, Linda greeted us at the door, had us take our shoes off and put on slippers that they provide (helps with all the salt and snow getting treked through the house, beauiful hardwoods and area rugs would be ruined!). I thought this was a fabulous touch. Linda then showed us right to our room with some short explanations on what to expect. I liked that we didn't have to "checkin" and get all "squared away" before we even enjoyed ourselves. Homemade chocolate chip cookies were waiting for us in the room and the BOSE CD player was playing some nice ocean sounds (we actually loved it so much, we kept it on the entire weekend!!) There is not a television in the room which caused PANIC at first for me, but my husband talked me off the ledge and said we would enjoy ourselves even more because of that!

I love that Linda and Bill use green initiatives in their cleaning processes and they don't generate a lot of waste. They are very aware of that. No paper cups/plates, vinegar in laundry instead of fabric softener, recycle, etc.

The daily Breakfast was wonderful! Everything was served hot and fresh to our table and Clyde the Crocodile chalkboard would have a listing of what we could expect each morning. I am a tea drinker and there was a lot of different quality teas to choose from.

The Area: there isn't a whole lot to do in the middle of January (especially on a Sunday)...but restaurants were delicious (we went the Firehouse Pub & Grille). A lot was closed on Sunday which was our full day there, but we managed and just driving around was relaxing.

I will for sure recommend Whispering Pines B&B for sure and we hope to be back again. Thanks for a wonderful stay Bill and Linda. You've created a wonderful escape for people to enjoy each other, nature and quiet.

Room Tip: I think any room is just fine, but we were on the first floor in the Victorian Rose room. No view...

Thank you so much for leaving a review and we are so glad you enjoyed your stay at Whispering Pines. It is another cold day on the lake and I'm relaxing with a hot cup of tea. Bill & I will look forward to seeing you both again when the sun is out and the weather is warmer.
