“"A Great Place To Relax"”
Reviewed 2 December 2013

My wife and I exchanged a week of our resort for a week at Whispering Woods. We stayed in a 2 bedroom loft condo and were very pleased with our unit. The unit was very clean, the Kitchen was well equipped, the furniture was comfortable and the beds provided for a good nights sleep. The staff was very friendly and courteous and provided what we needed for a pleasant stay. The coffee maker in our condo didn't work and upon taking it to the desk, they replaced it with a brand new one. The resort is very close to Mt. Hood and a trip to Timberline Lodge is a must see. There are a number of good eating establishments in the area. You will find I have reviewed 2 of them that we feel are very good. Most of all, it was a great place to relax and step away from the world for awhile. Bring a good book, some soft music and just cuddle on the couch by the wood stove and enjoy a great week. We definitely play on going back again.

This is the second year we spent Thanksgiving here at Whispering Woods. The units are fully equipped to cook a full-up Thanksgiving Feast (even had a hand mixer). The resort itself is nestled in the woods and very quite especially this time of year. The resort has a small "heated" pool and a small but very functional fitness room (everything was clean and worked well). This is not the Ritz but has its own charm and all the staff we met were very nice. We love the location for easy access to Mt Hood and there is countless hiking trials within a 10 mile drive. We are thankful for much, spending family time away from the hustle and bustle of the city is truly a blessing.

Golf course is right there. Most rooms have balcony view of the course. Main advise I have for this place is to request a room on the 2nd floor. All rooms are 2nd or 3rd floor No elevator, it is a bit of a pain to drag your stuff in and out. The top floor rooms have nice big balconies but no roof over them so when it rains you can't use it. All the balconies are nice and you have your own BBQ. The inside of the condo is very nice and well equipped. Great place to explore Mt. Hood area and Columbia River valley. I would definitely go back there. We were there on a RCI trade.

Room Tip: All the rooms are quiet. Get one with covered balcony if possible due to it rains there often. We...

The Whispering Pines Resort is tucked away in the woods along a golf course in Welches Oregon in the shadows of Mt Hood. It's about an hour from Portland, 4 hours from Crater Lake and the Pacific coast so it was easy for us to see a lot of Oregon from this base camp. We drove back into Portland to go to the Saturday Market, visit Powell's Book Store and just experience the town that has a slogan of "Keep Portland Weird" which they shouldn't have any trouble doing. Great food and beer in Portland. Be sure to take a day and drive from Welches to Troutdale and then head east on the Historic Columbia River Gorge Highway with stops at Crown Point Vista House for fantastic views of the Gorge, Multnomah Falls and Hood River to see the wind surfers. We took a whole day to do the loop which included a stop to have a late lunch with an old friend at Timberline Lodge while overlooking Mt Hood on a remarkably clear day in September. The resort has been around for awhile, but is comfortably appointed. Check in/out was easy. There is a nice heated pool. We had a maintenance issue with holes in our screens that were fixed right away. We were on the third floor and there are no elevators so beware if you have trouble with steps. Welches has a grocery store, a gas station and a few other stores, but no pharmacy. So if you need anything more than a aspirin or Benedryl, you have to go to Sandy which is about 20 minutes back toward Portland. There is not a lot of night life in Welches, but we found Zig Zag Inn had a great dinner.

The deer came by to let us know they were around. Our 2 bedroom with loft unit was along one of the golf greens from the neighboring resort. While we were not allowed to walk on it, it was a pleasant view and mostly quiet except for an occasional golf cart motoring by. We were very pleased with the fully equipped unit. We used it as a base for touring the Mt. Hood area. Several very nice restaurants were close by as was a small shopping center. However for a more major shopping, journey out to Sandy or Gresham. It will cost you less. Since we were there over Labor Day, we used one day to just hang out and relax. We even used the grill one night. The swimming pool was open but we never found the time to use it. The beds were very comfy. It was a very quiet area which was just what we were looking for and were very happy that a week came thru for us.

This property is essentially a timeshare trade/getaway that also rents apartments for non-members. This is not a resort with spa treatments but a wonderful apartment complex with a pool, sauna and jacuzzi. The staff is 5+ and couldn't be more helpful. If Sandy is doing an area briefing, take advantage of it. The information is valuable and made our trip even more enjoyable. She has great tips you'll want to follow!
The apartment was just fine and has a fully stocked kitchen with all you need to cook meals. A big plus is the huge patio that comes with each unit where you can eat outside or just sit outside and enjoy the fresh air. I suggest you ask for a top floor but only if you're willing to walk up three flights of stairs (no elevators!).
The only negative as you will read from other reviews is lack of air conditioning. The box fans are okay at night but it did get warm. I asked for an apartment with ceiling fans but phase II does not have any. With the weather getting cooler, right now through September is probably perfect temperatures at night and during the day.
We loved staying there (inspite of no airconditioning) and plan to return with our son and his young family. We checked out the two bedroom loft and it's hugs. Only problem with those is they're directly on the golf course with no trees to camaflouge.
The apartment was very clean and we got all the towels we requested plus I wanted new pillows and had now trouble getting them.
I can recommend this property.

Room Tip: If you're willing to walk 3 flights of stairs, ask for B5. This unit has very large patio (more...

I've stayed in much fancier digs, but I tip my hat to the management at Whispering Woods, which deftly handled a problem that occurred during our stay. Crayons inadvertently left inside the washer/dryer, apparently by the previous guests, ruined an entire load of our laundry. The management promptly responded to the unit, and offered to reimburse us for the clothing, asking only that we email or fax them an itemized list with the approximate value of each item. Within a few days of my return home, I received a check with another sincere apology note. The maintenance staff also responded with equal swiftness when I called about a slow bathroom sink drain.
