Summer Guests: Welcome! Please note our special mountain home does NOT have central air-conditioning. This is rarely noticeable as mountain temps generally range 9-13 degrees cooler than surrounding areas, and the home is on a nicely shaded parcel and has ample moveable fans and large opposing windows to make ideal use of cooler evening crosswinds. Please review the Wintergreen Resort website and our summertime reviews for more information.
Enjoy Wintergreen hiking, tennis, skiing and snow sports and other outdoor adventures, or simply relaxing and rejuvenating with those close in your realm, from the comforts of our ideally located and serene golf-front haven in this beautiful nature preserve. Whispering Oaks offers you access for 8 to ALL EXCLUSIVE WINTERGREEN AND STONEY CREEK RESORT AMENITIES (included with use of our Resort Membership Guest Passes)...and, at super affordable special rates! Please note that some resort fees and restrictions apply.

We were lucky to find and secure this special mountain home after falling in love (again) with Wintergreen over a hiking weekend in fall 2012. - We had selected and stayed in a VRBO rental property that was cute on-line, but dingy and run-down on site. Inspired to own at Wintergreen, we considered and visited a nice view condo, but were deterred when we couldn't escape the party next door. We vowed to create a haven in this beautiful natural enclave that would be serene, but also accessible, and necessarily comfortable and clean and welcoming... We sought high ceilings and an open feel bathed in natural light, with appealing views inside and out... And, we wanted to create a special mountain respite offering fabulous indoor and outdoor gathering areas... - Welcome to Whispering Oaks!
Please take a moment to read some of our reviews. We are fortunate and proud that Whispering Oaks has earned so many positive - even, glowing - reviews from lots of our thoughtful guests. We well appreciate that much can be learned from folks who have experienced the very getaway you are contemplating. Thanks so much for your interest in Whispering Oaks!

Whispering Oaks is centrally located on a private wooded parcel in a distinctive neighborhood on the third hole of Devil’s Knob Golf Course (at 3800 feet, the highest golf course in the state), and offers three bedrooms with two full baths and two half baths. Our home features a bright, open floor plan and spacious bedrooms. The master is located on the first floor. Two additional upstairs bedrooms are situated to offer maximum privacy. One of these has a half bath, making the home especially well suited for several couples, or couples with kids. The bedrooms provide private accommodations for 7 - 8 and a Queen Sofa Sleeper in the living room sleeps an additional 2 people. (We suggest 7 - 8 as the 3rd bedroom top bunk will safely support an adult but may be more comfortable and accessible for a child/teen, so it depends on your party or how spry your adults are!...)
Upon entering the foyer, you will find to your left a convenient utility area. The inviting living room, with its soaring cathedral ceiling of inlaid wood and floor-to-ceiling stone fireplace, opens to the dining area, which in turn flows into an immaculate, spacious kitchen. The whole first floor offers splendid nature views. The dining room provides comfortable seating for nine. An adjacent breakfast bar accommodates additional diners. Early risers can enjoy morning coffee at the breakfast bar, or opt for a seat in the cozy breakfast nook flanked by windows with idyllic morning scenes. The fully appointed kitchen offers everything you need for preparing snacks and meals. Please use our supply of coffee, and spices, oils and condiments/dressings.
Customary check-in is 4:00 p.m. and check-out is 11:00 a.m., but we gladly offer early check-ins and late check-outs unless precluded by adjacent reservations.
In appreciation for those who have sacrificed to defend our freedoms, and those who care for our Nation's heroes, we offer special discounts (10%) to all Active Duty Military, Veterans and Veterans Administration (VA) employees. (Offer not applicable with other rate specials or on holidays.)
Let us delight in enriching your Wintergreen experience by sharing with you the offerings of our special mountain home.
