Beautiful and cozy!

  • 5 of 5

The property was beautiful and cozy. My girlfriend and I stayed there with another couple, it was perfect for 4 people. Great place to come back to after skiing and jump in the hot tub. The fully furnished kitchen was great for preparing home cooked dinners each night. Would definitely consider coming back during summer to take advantage of the lakefront property!

  • 5 of 5

Great cabin in a great location. It was such a relaxing time for us. We really enjoyed it- the wood burning stove, the beautiful birch and pine trees, and all of the deer we saw near the property. We can't wait to go back again

Log Cabin Getaway

  • 5 of 5

A beautiful log cabin, tastefully decorated, located on lovely Lake Johns. We were there for a November weekend, very quiet and peaceful. Our 2nd stay, we would definitely come back. Bonnie and Misty were very easy to deal with.....we only had my wife and myself, but 2 bedroom cabin would easily handle more people, kid friendly.

Quiet, Cozy and Clean

  • 5 of 5

We recently rented this Whispering Pines cabin as a family getaway. For the 3 of us, it was just wanted we needed, and more! The cabin comes highly stocked with amenities, top of the line pots and pans and appliances. It is situated on Johns Lake, which provided fantastic sunset views over the lake, not to mention, a hot tub just off the deck! Yes, it was 9 degrees outside during our stay but we braved the elements to relax in the hot tub and it was well worth it! We also had a blast snow tubing at Nordic Mountain which was about a 6 minute drive from the cabin. The beds were very comfortable, the wifi and cable tv worked great and it was nice to bring our own dvds for entertainment as well. Plus, the owner also allowed for us to bring our dog. Would highly recommend.

Cozy cabin retreat

  • 5 of 5

There are some places that you feel drawn to and Whispering Pines is just that place. What is it about this cabin that makes you feel so welcome and at home? The decor is attractive and inviting. The furnishings, and even the dishware reflect the quality and care that has been put into this cabin. We enjoyed sitting on the deck on the very comfortable, and well made patio furniture. Cozy and clean, my husband and I had a relaxing, peaceful stay.

The lake view is absolutely fantastic, with an easy walk out to the water. The hot tub is conveniently located with a fantastic view of the lake. The grounds are well maintained and clean as well. Since our fall was so unseasonably warm, the yellow iris at the corner of the deck near the hot tub was in full bloom! Mid-November - full bloom!

It is a perfect getaway cabin for couples or small families, with two bedrooms on one level separated by an open kitchen/living area. I love every aspect of this cabin!

Just what we needed

  • 5 of 5

I can`t say enough about this property. It was well maintained and very clean. My wife and I stayed in November so it was very quiet and calm. If you just need to get away and recharge this is the place. We absolutely loved it.
