Everything was awesome. Whispering Pines is everything that it is advertised to be. The home is beautiful. The property is beautiful. Loved the back yard trees. Communication through email was so efficient I had no need to ask any questions. Thank you. Check in instructions were clear and easy to follow. Likewise check out instructions were very easy to follow. Full refund was quickly given upon our check out. My family loved Whispering Pines and would definitely return in the future. Thank you so much for letting us use your home.
We really enjoyed the beautiful home and property. Any issues were immediately resolved. They were very flexible with check in and check out times which made it easier when dealing with children. The home was extremely comfortable with endless storage space. The property is beyond stunning and a great place to play and relax.
This house and property is amazing. The grounds are well manicured and park like. The house accommodations are beautifully decorated and the bathrooms are incredible with soaking tub and dual showers. Laurie is an amazing person who accommodated our every request. I had my wedding at her Bed and Breakfast Inn, Apples. Which is also incredible. My entire family and wedding party stayed at her 4 VRBOs and accommodated 32 people in total. I would not have changed a thing as everything was picturesque, beautiful, and very comfortable. I would highly recommend her VRBOs and her bed and breakfast inn which also has the very best food. I’m looking forward to celebrating our anniversary there too.
We planned a Big Bear trip in late March with the expectation that there would still be snow, *sigh, there was no snow other than snow summit. Our faulty planning, which gave us a major let down, but this house rental, was just, perfect!! Made our trip worth while. Everything from the check-in instructions to the flexible check-out was a breeze. Instructions were down to a T, have question? Read the email or the cute index album left on the kitchen counter. Amazing house sooo roomy, the backyard alone was suffice enough for our trip to be exactly what we needed to relax and unwind. Kitchen was fully equipped, bathrooms stocked, and clean sheets galore. Everything was clean! Just amazing and dreamy rental!! Definitely will be booking in the future again!
Such a fantastic week we had as a family. The home is so well maintained and extremely comfortable for a family of 8. All the creature comforts of home are available. We love cooking and the kitchen was well stocked. The grounds are just so spectacular, plenty of room to move about and explore, play lawn games. Our "littles" childern were in search of bears in the woods, with their little lanterns, priceless. What a splendid place to be able to sit out back on the veranda, sipping our morning coffee and listening to the stream, babbling. So peaceful, it simply takes your breath away, with the crisp clean air and the breeze rustling through the pine trees. Plus this home is convenient to everything, a short 5 minutes to the village, slopes, hiking and marina. Bring your mountain bikes and clubs, a couple of family members said the 9 hole golf course was fast. We were so sorry to have to leave. Definitely be coming back.
The house is very beautiful and our stay was amazing.
Stayed 2 nights with 7 other guys for a church retreat and had a great time. Plenty of room for all of us to relax and everything you need to enjoy some time in the mountians. Excellent communication with the owners. Only small issue was small bunk beds (obviously made for families with kids). The property is as advertised.
Clean, Huge, Nice Mansion, we have a great time, thank you
The Whispering Pines Estate is something from a dream when covered in fresh snow! The wooded backyard had two ponds, a playground, gazebo and endless space to play! Our kids were in heaven, sledding, building snowmen, throwing snowballs and playing hide and seek in the pines. The home itself is lovely. The kitchen was spacious and featured high end appliances, the bedrooms were roomy with ample closet space, the bunk bed was a hit with the kids as was the jacuzzi tub! The location was prime. Less than 10 minute drive to Snow Summit ski resort, tubing hills, and downtown area. We thoroughly enjoyed our stay and would love to visit Whispering Pines Estate in the Spring too!
