"This home was a wonderful escape for our family during spring break. We visited the Seattle/Tacoma area to tour local colleges as well as visit the various zoos, aquariums and museums. It provided us a quiet, calm and relaxing place to start and end our busy days. The owner lives nearby and was so welcoming and helpful. She understood and accommodated when we asked for a later checkout time. As other reviewers have said, there are a lot of stairs, so be aware of this when you pack! They are well lit at night and have slip resistant steps, so even during the infamous rain they felt safe."

"I recently stayed on a Saturday night while attending the OysterFest in nearby Shelton. The suite was clean and well-stocked with everything we needed (and then some). While there is a highway nearby it wasn't a problem for us and we both slept very well in the king bed. The view from the suite is fantastic and the space overall felt more like a house than a rental unit.
The town of Allyn has more to offer than we had anticipated. There are interesting shops and restaurants within walking distance - in addition to the ice cream shop on the ground floor. This is a great place for a family since you can put the kids on the hideabed in the living room. The fireplace works very well and would keep you toasty on a blustery winter night.
It's an easy getaway from Seattle but you feel like you're far, far away.
I'd love to return to this property!"

"Here’s the 5-star comment I’d like to post:
We recently returned for our second stay at Whispering Pines. My husband and I awoke to lots of birds & their joyful birdsong each morning. The house is cozy, clean, well-lit and peaceful. The hot tub is clean and relaxing. We enjoyed rowboating two sunny days on the lake. Dean & Ruth Ann are warm and friendly. We are so happy we returned. We highly recommend Whispering Pines.

"Our party of 6 had a very relaxing experience at Island Magic. We enjoyed paddling our canoe down both sides of the pointe, long walks and took a bicycle trip to a near state park. The house had everything we needed and more and we only almost regret that it wasn't training so we could have paid more attention to the extensive movie collection :-)"
