We had a wonderful time with great views. The site was perfect for a little get away with everything we needed to have a peaceful night. The hosts were great about checking in before and after our stay.
Wonderful whispering pines!
Whispering Pines (Site #2) was outstanding and far exceeded our expectations! Anna Marie and Ed were great hosts and were very personable and accommodating. They welcomed us when we arrived and told us about the privy, trails they set up on their property and answered any questions. She gave recommendations for local hikes, kayaking and where to see wildlife. Ed made sure we had plenty of firewood and had insight into local history, which is always nice to hear. We will definitely be staying with Anna Marie and Ed again in the near future!
Anna Marie and Ed (and their son, Chris) were an absolute delight! They were extremely helpful and went out of their way to make us feel safe, cared for, and have an amazing camping experience. Our car got stuck in mud after a rainy weekend, and they really went out of their way to push our car out of it. I highly recommend this place if you want to relax and have a fantastic camping experience! And everything was super clean and really well cared for. Will definitely be making a return trip!
Beautiful and serene
Somehow, this campsite and the entire property are even lovelier in person than the photos capture. The Whispering Pines site is a short walk from the parking area but perfectly quiet and private. The site is a decent size with a nice fire ring and space to set up a tent nearby. The stand of maturing pines makes for a shady and sheltered spot surrounded by mowed field paths and trails through the woods to enjoy. Anna Marie and Ed were kind and hospitable and provide plenty of amenities like firewood and a toilet. Overall this was a pleasant and peaceful experience in a gorgeous setting!
Anna Marie & Ed were excellent hosts and made us feel safe and welcomed the minute we arrived! The site was just perfect and Anna Marie, Ed, & their family who were in town made sure we had all we needed and answered all questions (esp since it was our first time tent camping)! I’d absolutely recommend and we plan to visit again in the future!
Anna Marie and Ed were very sweet and yet gave us privacy. Everything was well maintained, walking paths around the property were cleared and well marked. Parking was a little tight. The flush toilet in a clean little shed-type building with a light was wonderful since I had two kids in tow. There was plenty of firewood in one bundle for two nights. Lots of birds and deer, though I heard the birds more than I saw them. Be aware that whippoorwills are nocturnal, apparently. I was certainly surprised. I had just enough phone signal to send a text or two when I arrived. Also, I noticed no poison ivy anywhere, which is a nice change from many places I’ve camped. The view from this site is mostly of the main house and a cabin. If you walk around a stand of pine trees there is a bench where you can sit and look out across the hills, but you can’t see a lot from the tent site itself.
We had a wonderful experience. Anna Marie and Ed are such great hosts!! The site is beautiful and very well kept. Everything was perfect. We have small kids (8 and 2) and they had an amazing time. We’ll be going back soon. Highly recommended!
