Places to see near Whispering Winds
If you stayed here and have some insider info for us, let us know!
First of all, this site necessitates zero camping supplies besides yourself and your food! This site is a vacation getaway - Bev and Bob are genuinely hospitable, fascinating and delightful people. We were greeted and shown around their delightful home (their upstairs is also available for stays, as well as their campsite!), where they have a full breakfast table with coffee, tea, snacks. Bev even made us cinnamon rolls for the morning. After we toured, and got settled into our RV (where campers stay!), they recommended we go to the nearby winery, Four Daughters. We loved it. Our sleep was restful, and the full accommodation and amenities were worth much more than their price. Above average host and stay!
We loved the well-equipped, private camping area with RV camper. The grounds include a hobby farm, small dog park, and a park-like area with a hammock, swinging chair and lots of shade. We all loved it, especially our kids aged 7 and 12. If you're looking for something different, give this place a try.
We had a great time at Whispering Winds! Our dogs had the best time exploring all the smells and sights in a safe, enclosed area. We were so thankful to be able to open our tent in the morning and know they could safely run out without being leashed. Plus the off leash dog park was right next door, although we always double checked to make sure a chicken hadn’t snuck in! Beverly’s animals are all so friendly and the pony is a hoot! Close enough to some state parks that we were able to enjoy the perks of”traditional camping” with the privacy of a Hipcamp site. Thanks again. We were more than happy and had a great time!!
Bev's magical farm--a must-stay
Whispering Winds was WONDERFUL! We stayed in the garden cottage, which had a great setup: beds, mini-fridge, microwave, coffee maker, etc. This turned out to be providential, as it rained the whole weekend. BUT that didn't stop me and my boys from having fun. We enjoyed meeting all of Bev's animals (the goats, the horse, the donkey, the doves, the ducks, a chicken, koi, three cats and a dog). My kiddos even helped Bev with some of the farm chores--they loved feeding the animals. And at night--oh, the night! Fireflies EVERYWHERE. It was truly magical. The location is great, too, as it's near Mystery Cave State Park. We had access to a fire ring, indoor and outdoor toilets, hammocks, a tree fort, a propane grill, a charcoal grill...everything, and I mean EVERYTHING you could possibly need. If you are considering staying at Bev's farm, DO IT. I promise you will have a wonderful, relaxing time. :)
Woods edge wonderful!
Our group stayed at the woods edge camp site. We really enjoyed the privacy and the little extra's that the host provided. You can truly pack your tent and go. The host was very friendly and made several great suggestions for local visits. We enjoyed visiting the four daughters winery for their annual grape stomping event and dinner at a local pizza farm. The kids enjoyed roaming the grounds and petting the animals, especially the donkey. You can really get inspirational ideas from the host's reuse of materials like the tiny house made of pallets and the little whimsical touches all over the farm. The host has a wealth of knowledge about gardening and fossils and she is happy to share. Truly magical, we will return!
A cute and a magical land.
I have only few words to describe this place - magical, fantasyland turned to reality and amazing.
First off Beverly was beyond accommodating. When she learned we were reaching late instead of a tent that we needed to pitch she gave us one of the cabins. The cabin was straight out of Goldilocks - a fishing cabin turned into a mini house equipped with sofa bed, loft bed, closet, fridge and TV. You wake up to a glass window overlooking horses, goats and lush green. The courtyard has a cute little bbq area, mini bathrooms, small campfire area to sit around and a giant dog park. The goats feel they are dogs and come for pets. The lake nearby (and owned by her) is filled with ducks and the trees around are pretty. Yes its also a one stop shop for all camping amenities as mentioned in other reviews but the other things are important to note, other being ones mentioned above. Beverly's house is extremely creative, making the camping site a magical place. We will definitely return or more so just come here to get away from nyc and camp.
A great place
You are close to civilization, BUT Wood's Edge is secluded and so you can enjoy privacy . You have your little retreat where you can relax while watching suirrels, frogs, grashopper and the farm animals. We liked especially Thomas, a beautiful cat.
The camp offers everything you need and Beverly is a very friendly host. All in all we had a good time and would like to come back!
Best greets from Germany, Andrea and Peter
