Beautiful surroundings, large comfortable accommodations, great walking trails on site

  • 4 of 5

Loved it. Very nice place, very large! lots of room. Upstairs in a building next to the one shown in the picture. This is a working horse farm, and the work starts early. 7 minute drive to Starbucks! Nice restaurants close by. Great hosts who will leave you alone. Could have a few more personal amenities like soap and shampoo, but we brought our own anyway. Very comfortable bed! 4.5 stars, (deducted half a star for morning noise, cracked toilet seat, and lack of amenities that they brought over once we asked. Also need a diagram on how to use the remote, pushed a wrong button and couldn't get the channels until we texted them to come over, which they did right away.)

I would stay here again in a heart beat!

Clean, quiet, serene

  • 5 of 5

Enjoyed our stay at the ranch! Wish I budgeted more time to explore nearby trails. If this beautiful apartment was equipped with a full kitchen, I would never stay anywhere else. Since the location is more secluded, cell phone coverage isn’t great. The Wi-Fi provided allowed me to connect to make calls. The hosts were very accommodating.

Beautiful property with warm welcoming hosts

  • 5 of 5

My party consisted of 4 women, all family, looking for a unique relaxing girls weekend. Whispering Hope offered a lovely Vista,a variety of animals,huge property to roam,and a large yet cozy apartment with many entertaining amenities. Our stay was even better than we had hoped for! Amy and her family were awesome in meeting all of our needs, yet absolutely non- intrusive.

Beautiful property, great hospitality

  • 5 of 5

My husband, boys and I really enjoyed the ample room and the air hockey and pool tables in the apt to spend our evenings while visiting the Raleigh area. Amy and her family were very welcoming and the boys even got to get a little mini learning session w one of their ponies. Would definitely like to be back AND definitely recommend.
