We had been going for 5 years as a tradition for Christmas and the last time we went the owner was extremely rude and disrespectful. Handed us a key to look at the other cabins and we couldn't understand her when she told us which one to open and we opened an occupied one and the owner yelled and went...

The lodge, presented as a B&B, is really ,ore of a hotel with several small, multi-unit buildings. They are known for their home-made breakfasts, were very good and certainly better than what is presented as a ‘full breakfast’ in the vast majority of hotels and motels. However, the property is looking somewhat warn and run down. The fan in our...

I've often camped at the Kern and stayed at McNally's which is average but this B&B was an absolute treat - especially after a very long 17 hour hike on Mt Whitney. My kids and I really enjoyed the comforts of the room and the geniune quality service provided by Kathleen. Kathleen's breakfast was absolutely amazing. I think my 11...

My husband and I ended up at The Whispering Pines on a surprise vacation - my mother sent us there as well as arranging a rafting trip for us. It was a wonderful surprise! The room was large, with a working fireplace, and a bathroom that featured both a shower and a bath. We also had a large balcony, and...

We had a great room adjacent to the pool area with a large deck overlooking the Kern River. This is a lodge, not a resort property, but the room was clean and spacious enough. It was a great stop-off and a restful place to stay that was close enough to town to be convenient but also far enough away to...

Whispering Pines staff clearly loves what they do. This made for a memorable stay. Our family felt at home. An absolutely delicious breakfast every morning! My girls felt like they were at Grandma's restaurant back in upstate New York. The location was perfect for us. From our private balcony we enjoyed the tourist rafting. Hiking trails at just a few...

Quaint property. Owner is often onsite. Room was so dusty last time that I had an asthma attack. The breakfasts are yummy, but are not served early enough for most business travelers (8 to 12).
