The women who work here really make this place special... so nice and try really hard to make it special. The view from the balcony was nice, and the breakfast was yummy. It was a little pricey for us since we only stayed one night and we didn't get to really enjoy the property. Would probably stay somewhere less expensive...

Everything was so well maintained and clean. I love this place and cant wait to return. The owner was kind and hard...

Great location!!! Beautiful view, friendly staff, Karen was very nice and helpful. The rooms was clean and comfortable (209-210). Breakfast very tasteful and sitting on the deck with the view great way to start our day. Tubing on the river was wonderful, we really enjoy our trip to Kernville, we will be back.

We loved our stay at the Whispering Pines Lodge! Louise seems instantly like an old friend. The rooms and the main lodge have a cute and restful rustic decor. Breakfast on the deck with a view of the trees is such a wonderful way to start the day! And the view of the river from the pool area is fabulous!...

We've stay here a few times and really like it. River rooms are the best, we really liked 105 which is right next to the pool. The view out back is terrific, not only the Kern river (which is set back maybe 50') bit also a small creek right below the deck, from which we were able to witness a...

Beautiful room, great location. I highly recommend. Plus the breakfast is not bad either. Check out the nearby Miracle Hot Springs if you can. Great place for getting away with a good book or a good partner! HA!

Upon check-in we were not told that there wasn't a telephone in the room, nor a pay phone near the room. This got my wife and I thinking what if we need emergency services? How would they find us if we couldn't provide the address? What if we needed additional towels, or bath soap. We would have to walk up...
