Welcome to Paradise. Set in a secluded, wooded location within walking distance of Lake Josephine on beautiful Anderson Island, Whispering Pines is a spacious and private two bedroom, one bath home.
Rustic in style, the large living room has a Schrader woodstove and lots of comfortable seating, with ample room to play games, watch movies, or just relax and look out the picture windows on either side.
You can also enjoy the 377 square foot back deck with seating for 12.
Whispering Pines has been designed to appeal to all of your senses. The large & sunny, gourmet kitchen is fully equipped, including a hand cranked pasta maker, & an electric bread machine and mixes.
Look in all the cupboards to discover a crock pot, electric skillet, blender, and lots of little extras everywhere you look. There are even cloth tablecloths and napkins for your use. Take a weekend to pamper yourself! We'll supply the necessities.
Gaze through the kitchen's large bay window to the back deck and the frequent sight of a doe and her fawns walking through.
Enjoy the owner's eclectic touches through-out the house, from the silver wire and polished stone window art to the interesting collection of books to read: Westerns, mysteries, and more, mixed with Doonesbury and Dilbert.
The extensive video & DVD collection ranges from Classics to Indiana Jones to The Three Stooges. We have many family friendly movies.
There are several games, cards, poker chips as well as several jigsaw puzzles to try your skill and patience!
In the summer months, the back deck is a wonderful spot to entertain with it's propane grill and wrought iron dining set. You are welcome to relax with a book in the sitting area under the trees at the other end of the deck.
On cold days make soup in the Crock pot and settle down in front of the wood stove to watch movies or play games.
Coziness and an attention to detail together with the serene wooded setting make Whispering Pines a favorite choice for families, couples or honeymooners who want a romantic getaway.
This could become your own special Get away place.
Experience Whispering Pines just once and you will want to come back every year! (Many people do!)
When it's time to relax in the hot tub, check out the thick bathrobes in the master bedroom closet. On your way outside to the tub, look next to the sliding glass door to see shelves with thick towels and flip flops.
The house includes the use of the washer and dryer. Also in the laundry room, are all the supplies you'll need to attract the birds, deer, and squirrels. We have suet cakes (holders already hanging in the apple tree), bird seed and wild life food for the deer.
Just wanted to drop a note and thank You again for letting us stay at the Cabin. We had a wonderful stay. The only thing that would have made it better, was to have more time. We got up early Sunday am to enjoy the Hot Tub and shared the crisp morning air with a large doe and her fawn. They had no fear of us at all as they wandered around the yard eating the left over birdseed. Once we finally pulled ourselves out of the tub, we took off for the beach. We walked one of the trails down, about a half mile, then over the boardwalk to the secluded beach. Reachable only by the trail or Kayak, it was beautiful, quiet and serene. It was so hard to believe that our hectic life was just a ferry ride away... and unfortunatly waiting. We are so looking forward to our next trip , and hope that we will be able to stay here again. We have rented many Cabins/Homes thru VRBO , but I must say with all honesty, we have never found one better maintained or welcoming. Thanks again.

We had a great time here. There were plenty of pots, pans, dishes, blankets and towels provided. Me and my guests also enjoyed the hot tub and the large patio outside. The area is very quiet, tranquil and serene.
We have stayed at Whispering Pines several times and each time has been so enjoyable. We are especially appreciative of how the house is so well equipped, clean, and ready when we arrive. The wood is set up for us with fire starters in the fireplace, the fresh towels and bedding is well managed, the outside is always freshened up and clean, and the hot tub is on - ready to go. Dean and Ruth Ann have been so accommodating and flexible for us, and we especially appreciate that they give us access to laundry with everything we need. I am sorry I haven't posted earlier! A place to relax and be worry free! Thanks for your hospitality. We will be back again and again.
If you want a place just to chill and let your world go for a few days, this is it! The house is cozy and welcoming and so are the owners. Ruth Ann has thought of whatever a visitor might need and made sure it is right there, whether fluffy towels and robes or a great movie. We would love to come back and stay again! The island is beautiful as well and is walking and bicycle friendly. Dining out options are somewhat limited but the house has a wonderful kitchen with all the utensils and cookware you will need and a perfect patio set on the deck for those summer meals.
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.
We had a wonderful time here. We spent 12 nights and really got a chance to relax. The owners really try to make sure that you're taken care of, and they provide a lot of extras. The hot tub is great! We loved seeing the wildlife (deer, raccoon, squirrels, birds), and the owners provide plenty of feed so you can put it out for them. Would recommend this for anyone!
We thoroughly enjoyed our stay! The hot tub is top of the line! The kitchen is well stocked with all the utensils needed including condiments offered for guests use. The house was very peaceful with awesome seclusion. We absolutely fell in love with the island itself and cannot wait to come back. Ruth Ann was very easy to get in touch with and quickly responsive to all my emails. We would love to return to whispering pines!
We now have a 'HOT SPRINGS' 'Sovereign' Hot Tub, This wonderful spa will relax you as you get the chance to watch birds, squirrels and deer up close, In the evening star gaze while luxuriating in hot water under the towering pine trees, On the Island we have available the Riveria Lakeshore Restaurant, a wonderful place for any meal.
