We hope you’ll find many of our amenities will make your stay comfortable and a few unique features you won’t want to miss. Often these are what continues to draw you back, time and time again.
Relax on the Porch, in the Gardens or enjoy the Hot Tub
The wrap around porch/veranda offers a pleasant view of the gardens, pine trees and often wildlife scampering around. Swing in the hammock and listen to the peaceful trickle of the waterfall or wander through the gardens and find your ideal spot to relax; there are many.
Just off the deck is the hot tub, available to all guests year round. Slip on your Whispering Pines B&B Kimono robe and take a soak on a moonlit night. Or, snuggle up with a Mexican wool blanket to keep you warm while star gazing on those chilly evenings.
Memories: Fun & Games in the Den & Parlor
The parlor, dining room and den are common areas open to all guests. Homemade snacks, candies and refreshments will tempt you to indulge. We even provide you with wine glasses and cork screws in case you’ve found wine on your journey here or brought that special bottle you’ve been saving to share.
Play the piano in the parlor, help piece together the community puzzle or in the den, you’ll find a TV w/Cable, CD/DVD player, playing cards and board games. Enjoy a movie from the DVD library or gather around the dining table to play a game of cards or just to chat. A guest computer is also available for internet browsing.
History of the Inn
This Victorian Era farmhouse was built in 1878. The main floor is decorated in classic formal Victorian style with original dark woodwork framing the doorways, transoms and lace adorning the tall double hung windows. The high ceilings and interior decor in the common rooms will easily transport you back to the Victorian period. But, we’ve kept it casual and comfortable through our reuse of building materials and modern conveniences such as central heat and air conditioning and wireless internet. They are complimented by antiques from different eras and relics from Jeanna’s global travels.
Over the years, many changes and updates have been made to the structure of the home. It’s believed in the early 1900′s, the wrap around porch and beautiful hard wood floors were added as well as moving the kitchen from the underground room to the main floor. If this interests you, Jeanna is happy to point out obvious elements of the current structure or remnants left behind that show proof of these changes.
A few more clues that this was once a working farm can be seen around the now 6.2 acres of grounds. You’ll find the old root cellar, outhouse and chicken coop, now the backdrop for Jeanna’s vegetable garden.
