Great setting. Update needed. Clean, but worn. Confused as to why the only amenity was a bar of soap. Also, having coffee in the kitchen would be a nice touch for not much money. Cannot not understand why improvements haven't been made. Most of them would be affordable & just cosmetic.

However, with over 30 cabins this is a seemingly endless process. Should you choose to stay with us in the future, please don't hesitate to ask if...

We visited Whispering Pines in September to escape the still hot desert of southwest Arizona. It was a long, but beautiful car ride. Once we arrived, we received a very friendly greeting from the management. The location of these cabins is in the heart of Pinetop, close to everything yet very quiet. Many of the cabins are pet friendly, which...

Very nice cabins in the heart of Pinetop. You feel like you are way out in the country. Very quite and peaceful. Cabins are clean and have everything you need. Restaurant right next door. We will be back. Shopping is close.

This was our first visit to Whispering Pines and it won't be our last! We stayed in a very nice cabin, surrounded by trees, with a large front porch, Jacuzzi tub and full kitchen.

Lovely location at the edge of a national forest...classic cabins with modern amenities, kitchen, living area and spa. Even though it was August and 70 Degrees, we still enjoyed a romantic fire just for mood setting. Our 2 Bijons joined us on the trip ( very dog friendly ) and they both gave the resort 2 paws up!!

We just stayed 3 nights at a quiet, peaceful Whispering Pines cabin.It was just what we needed, a time to get away from the heat in Tucson and just enjoy the woods.

We rented cabin 34, which is a 3 bedroom. It was complete with towels, paper products, and fully furnished kitchen. It was nestled in the tall pine trees. Had beautiful weather with even a light rain on Sunday. The cabin was very clean.

We stayed 1 night with an option for 2 nights, but they wanted to know upon our arrival whether we were staying the second night. My reservation for night 1 was non refundable.
