This past labour day long weekend, a group of 18 friends and I rented Peter and Shirley's cottage for a wedding nearby. The property was perfect for our stay with plenty of amenities and was way better than we had expected. After reading several negative reviews prior to arriving, I was a bit nervous for our groups stay. My group...

Before I start this review I would just like to clarify that we stayed in the main house for Bed and Breakfast as some of the reviews on here seem to criticise the cottages greatly but I can only talk about my own experience. Our room was comfortable and clean, there was no air-conditioning on but the windows opened and...

My daughter is going away on a long trip, so we planned some quality time here. Couldn't have made a better choice! The porch of this old mansion is immense, so there's no problem finding a quiet place. The view is really soothing -- in front is a magic garden, which regularly wins the prize for best garden in the...

First of all the check-in was delayed because the previous guests where still using swimming pool. The place is infested with spider webs and mice. Refrigerator is ancient and doesn't cool properly. BBQ was covered with spider webs as if it was not used or cleaned for long time. Don't go by there website. The rooms are not in any...

We are surprised that this group of guests reports that they did not enjoy their stay at Whispering Pines. This seems strange to us in view of the fact that they communicated to us upon departure that not only did they have a great time, but that the stay was special for the children, who thoroughly enjoyed the pool. They...

We rented eight rooms for three days several months in advance. When we arrived we were informed that there would be no breakfast and we had to provide our own towels and toilet paper. They weren't happy, but they eventually came up with some towels and toilet paper. We had a banquet in the back yard one evening. We bought...

We are sorry if there was any miscommunication about the fact that this guest was part of a group that had booked Whispering Pines as a cottage, not as a b&b. It was made clear from the outset to the person responsible for booking our facility that, as a cottage rental, no breakfast would be provided. This is always the...

We visited there last week, nice property, beautiful location, cottage was well equipped with everything. Outdoor hot tub and pool - an asset! The king-size bed was beyond doubt one of the most comfortable and relaxing we've ever enjoyed sleeping in. I wanted to thank the owners for meeting with me this past weekend and returning my car keys. I...

Came prepared to enjoyed a weekend in a paradise place and found instead a place that was completely neglected by their owners. In fact we had stayed here 3 years ago and this place was amazing. We had memorable memories from that stay when all the grounds were clean and tidy and well kept. This time around things have deteriorated...

We are sorry that these guests are unhappy about their recent stay with us at Whispering Pines. We informed them long before their arrival that the pool was not guaranteed for them to use since Victoria Day weekend is early in the season and it is not always open at that time. However even though we were off site during...

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
Our Inn is a beautiful, historic home with approximately 4,000 square feet of living space, two walk-out porches, one from a second floor bedroom, and original maple floors. Many of the bedrooms have cedar ceilings. Situated on approximately one acre of land, this large property offers over 27 professionally designed gardens and two ponds stocked with goldfish, Japanese koi and local frogs for our guests to enjoy. Our suites are colorful, large, and welcoming, with king/king-singles, or queen beds, with ample sitting space for a relaxing read our as a base for adventure on Lake Simcoe.. Operated very much like an old English Country Inn, Whispering Pines provides its guests with a very comfortable atmosphere, where they are free to make themselves truly at home for the duration of their stay as the proprietors have their own private apartment. Hence, guests are encouraged to relax in the living area, light a fire, make themselves a cup of tea, and enjoy take out, BBQ, or a prepared meal in the dining room or outside in the gardens. Our main house rooms are beautifully decorated year round for romantic getaways for couples, and will also appeal to families visiting relatives and friends in the area; our low season price applies for the winter season. Also during the ice fishing season; Lake Simcoe is the ice fishing capital of Canada; we have a selection of rooms which we re-decorate for the comfort and convenience of our fishing guests. For those that would prefer the solitude of their own residence, we also have private cottages available. ... more   less
