Whispering Pines is NEW to our vacation rental program!

Escape to your perfect retreat nestled in the heart of nature.

Whispering Pines is a cozy haven with three spacious bedrooms and two full bathrooms providing a comfortable getaway for up to eight guests. Spread across three levels of living space, plus amazing outdoor living space, Whispering Pines offers both privacy and togetherness.

The outside space is nothing short of amazing, featuring a spacious deck with outdoor furniture, a BBQ grill perfect for al fresco dining, and a fire pit with Adirondack style chairs. Take a deep breath and soak in the natural surroundings. For the ultimate relaxation, indulge in the year-round hot tub experience, complete with outdoor TV for entertainment under the stars.

Inside, modern comforts abound with Smart TVs to stream your favorite apps and wireless internet to keep you connected. In the winter, cozy up to the wood-burning fireplace for a warm and inviting atmosphere. As the seasons change, enjoy the screen porch in the summer, adding a touch of outdoor living to your indoor experience.

If a day in the sand and sun is calling your name, Lake Michigan beach is 0.6-mile walk away at Westside County Park. This waterfront park has a playground, picnic area, bathrooms, and easy access to the beach and water.

Our beautiful area has much to enjoy during all four seasons. Within a 15-minute drive, you’ll find the downtown areas of Saugatuck, Douglas, Fennville, Glenn, and South Haven. From shopping and art galleries to wineries and breweries, there is something for everyone to enjoy.

Embrace the charm of Whispering Pines with contemporary amenities in this idyllic location.

Please Note: 
  • This home is tucked in the trees near a creek. It is common to see animals, mice, and other vermin. The property is serviced monthly by a professional pest company, but sometimes critters do sneak in. Please let us know right away if you see evidence of anything inside and we will send out pest control. No rate adjustments can be made for animals, critters, bugs, or vermin in or around the house. 
  • This home is on a septic system. Please do not flush anything other than toilet paper. If you flush other items, such a feminine products, it will cause a sewage backup into the showers and yard. Pleaes only flush toilet paper. 
  • This home receives water via well. Due to the high mineral content in our area, this water smells and tastes different than city water. Those who are accustomed to city water may wish to bring bottled water for drinking. 
  • The fireplace in the living room is wood burning and is only available for use in the winter months. When the fireplace is on, the heat will shut off. Please leave the door to the stairway ajar so the heat can flow to the lower level. 
  • The screen porch is attached to a shed in the backyard, not to the main house. This porch is only available during the summer months. 
  • The hot tub is serviced regularly by a professional service company. Use it at your own risk. 
  • The driveway is 400' long. On snowy winter days it might not be totally plowed. A four wheel drive vehicle may be needed to reach the house. You can also park in the lower spots and walk up the hill. Please be careful. Coming down the cruved driveway can be tricky. There is a path marked with a yellow rope through the woods from the lower parking spots to the house if the driveway is slippery.

We spent the weekend at Whispering Pines for a birthday girls trip. It was just what we needed. The space was excellent. The outdoor deck and privacy of the home made the stay even more peaceful. We would come back again in a heartbeat!

Absolutely wonderful place. You wont regret picking it. It was so homey and cozy. We stayed in all weekend with plenty of things to do. It was very relaxing and just what we needed. The land the place is on is gorgeous. We will definitely be back. The hosts are very kind and respond quickly. They were great to work with 10 out of 10. We highly recommend this place.

This was a perfect stay for my husband and I with our dog. Tons of activities to do - We hiked, kayaked, spent time at the beach, then wrapped up with a dip in the hot tub and hung out by the fire at night. Loved how private the location was and all of the nice touches to make us feel at home. Highly recommend to anyone looking for a peaceful getaway in the woods while still close to the lake!

My friends and I enjoyed our stay at Whispering Pines Cottage and could not recommend this place enough. We had more than enough space for the four of us and 6 of us could have easily stayed here without it feeling cramped. Besides the cute and cozy atmosphere of the inside of the home, the backyard was magical and truly felt like an additional living space. Unlike some other airbnbs we have stayed at before, we all commented that this place was one we looked forward to coming back from and hanging out at! The home felt very private even though you are only short distance from the road. The kitchen was well stocked, and there were so many places to spread out without feeling cramped within the spaces. The owners were very communicative and responsive! I would/will stay here again!

The outdoor area was private, spacious and exceeded our expectations. The hot tub and outdoor seating were ideal places to relax after our days at the beach. The bedrooms and cozy living areas accommodated our group of kids and adults quite well. We plan to return!

This is an amazing place to stay for a trip to the lake. It comfortably slept 4 couples in our group. It is walking distance from a public beach. The place is so cozy and amazing we loved spending nights by the indoor fire place or outside hot tub. Absolutely loved it and would recommend it to groups looking to get away to a nice place by Lake Michigan.

Such an amazing place to stay, its very secluded and good for a group. We enjoyed the hot tub, fire pit, and grill and didnt feel the need to leave the Airbnb, everything we had was there! We did go to local wineries and used Cyndis moonlight express that was recommended by the host and it was great as Ubers were sparse. Host was very responsive and detailed. My group is already talking about returning next year. Thanks for having us!

This was our second visit 3 years to Whispering Pines, and it never disappoints! great location, next Lake Michigan, city of Saugatuck, Fennville, and South Haven, but best of all, it is secluded in your own wooden area coupled with your own private creek and trails. Our dogs love it here and remember their way through the woods to the creek every time. Afternoon lunch at local wineries and breweries, then grilling out for dinner and fire pit at night. Perfect getaway! Perfectly unplugged! Perfect memories with our dogs.

What an amazing place in the woods. our dogs loved Whispering Pines. The hot tub was amazing! Their communication is unlike any other hosts that I have dealt with in Airbnb. The house is quiet and tucked away. The outdoor space is spectacular and so cozy. We will definitely book again.

A very quaint property with so much charm. It was a rainy weekend for us and we still enjoyed the indoor fire, the many board games they had, the puzzles and other fun amenities and went to the local area attractions recommended to us. We would definitely come again and aim for summer when the weather is more predictable as their outdoor space is fun

This was our familys third time at Whispering Pines. During this visit we celebrated Christmas with our kids. We were so excited to enjoy the home beautifully decorated for the holidays. We spent time in the valley, hot tub, had hot drink by the fireplace, and ate yummy meals. The kitchen has everything we needed. Already dreaming of our next visit. Thank you!
