Whispering Pines B & B
Just minutes away from the University of Oklahoma campus in Norman sits the Whispering Pines, a recently constructed Victorian-style home. The two-story property retains all the features of an authentic twentieth-century home and is surrounded by 20 acres of green woodlands. You may also choose to dine in the recently renovated restaurant, voted Best Fine Dining and Best Kept Secret in Norman. Antique furnishings fill the five guest rooms, each with its own theme: the English Hunt Room, the Lavender and Lace Room, the Satin Splendor Suite, the Stardust Room, and the Victorian Rose Room. If you desire even more seclusion, the home has an adjacent property, the Pine Cone Cottage, available for reservation. All rooms feature complimentary snacks, and the Pine Cone Cottage is equipped with a full kitchen.
My husband and I stayed at Whispering Pines on my birthday in January. We also had dinner there. All I can say is WOW what an experience. The room was the Secret Rose. It was roomy, nice and very clean and the jacuzzi was wonderful! They provide the salts, bubbles and candles. You just enjoy. Dinner that night was the most elequent I've ever eaten. 5 star service, excellent selection in wines or liquor. He was very courteous, made suggestions on wines, food and dessert. Some light conversation and relaxating romantic environment. We walked the grounds but can't wait to see it in the spring when things are blooming! Breakfast was delivered at the time specified. I liked that you could write on their little board as to what you wanted and left it out on the door knob for them to pickup. It is all service and you play! From 1 to 10 I give it a 12!!!!!!!!!! Don't miss out on this place. It is a nice get away in town.....:)
The only thing we regret is not eating at the restaraunt, after having the best fluffy pancakes topped with powdered suger, fresh fruit, Bacon, and OJ delievered to us at our convenience in the morning, we cant WAIT to go back and try dinner.. The Secret Rose room is perfect for you couples to get away and focus on eachother.. The bed is amazing, the Jacuzzi is amazing, the robes are comfy and the fireplace sets it off. Not to mention the candles, and dimming lights.. !
My husband and I stayed in the PineCone Cottage for our wedding anniversary and we had a great time!! We stayed on a Monday night and it was very peaceful and quiet. It seemed as though we had the entire place to ourselves. The grounds were beautiful with fragrant flowers planted throughout. There is also a very nice watergarden with a fountain and waterfall. The entire establishment gives a feeling of serenity! All of the staff made us feel welcome and appreciated and were all very friendly. I have read several reviews and most are very accurate. If you're looking to celebrate something special, or to just escape for a quiet evening away, I highly suggest this country retreat.
My sweetie and I had a great wedding at Whispering Pines recently. We enjoyed the easy-going nature of the staff; they were friendly and gave us no problems at all. Thanks to them, everything went smoothly. It was an absolutely beautiful place to hold our ceremony and several guests told us that it was the best and most enjoyable wedding they’d attended. Even the young children had fun feeding the fish and playing outside. Despite the pond, there were no mosquito or insect problems. Due to ample shade and following staff’s advice as to when to hold the wedding, it was a comfortable place to be even though it was very hot that day. Nothing can match having fireflies dance with you for your first dance. The rooms are exquisite and the food is very tasty. Everyone involved had an easy and fun time – I would suggest this place to anyone.
There was a minor problem with their new stereo system later in the evening, but it caused no major disruptions.
My wife and I only had a few days to spend on our honeymoon. We choose a Whispering Pines Bed and Breakfast on the tip from a friend that it was a lovely way to spend the weekend. Our stay at the bed and breakfast was very enjoyable and the staff paid very close attention to the details. We were really impressed when the cleaning staff conveniently cleaned our room during our dinner. Breakfast was delivered promptly and was hot and fresh. The dinner at the main was just incredible. My wife and I don’t eat out much so being spoiled was such a treat. I would highly recommend this place to anyone who asked me.
My husband and I decided to spend our wedding anniversary at the Whispering Pines Bed and Breakfast just outside of Norman on Hwy 9. The atmosphere upon entering the grounds was very pleasant and welcoming. There was great landscaping, a Koi pond, and a pavillion that you can sit at and enjoy a soothing waterfall. The staff was excellent--very courteous and attentive to our every need. We had a romantic dinner at the restraunt that was delicious. They even threw in a complimentary dessert for our anniversary. We stayed in the Lavendar and Lace suite. It was beautiful and cozy. The bed was wonderful! Loved the pillows! The suite also have a HUGE jacuzzi tub with great jets. They also had an on call massage theropist named Keely that was awesome! The only thing I wish was that we could have enjoyed it longer. One more thing...they had a wedding reception going on the night that we were there. I wish I would have thought about that when we were getting married!!! It was beautiful!
