This modern style architecture has a cozy, cottage feel. Nestled in a very friendly neighborhood, the pine trees provide the house privacy. The spacious beach is only five blocks away, and is a fairly easy walk for all ages. Well-maintained tennis courts and an extensive children’s playground are a short walk away.
The house sleeps comfortably six with 3 bedrooms and 2 baths. Two bedrooms are on the second floor: one has a double bed and the other a queen bed. A large antechamber between the two bedrooms has a single bed. The third bedroom is on the first floor with a day bed that can sleep a single or pull out to a king sized bed. French doors opening into the third bedroom allow it to double as a general usage room during the day. The family room has a pullout sofa bed. Enjoy the comforts of newly renovated rooms, including the kitchen, bath and bedrooms.
After a day at the beach, enjoy the serenity of the screened-in porch or step out to the outside porch and relax in the hot tub. Inside, enjoy all the amenities of home: a comfortable family room with TV, cable and wireless internet. The dining room has a long table, ideal for entertaining or for family meals. When weather permits, enjoy the porch for dinner with an outdoor dining table.

It is located in a quiet and friendly and picturesque neighborhood. We were able to walk to the beach which is a real plus. Some of the closest beach entrances were washed out, so we had to walk farther, but it wasn't too bad as we had brought a beach cart.
The kitchen and overall house was incredibly well-stocked. Half the things we brought were not needed. They even had lots of beach towels and backpack beach chairs and water floaties. The washer and dryer and dishwasher were all quiet and efficient. We did not try the outdoor grill, but it was nice to have as an option.
The two bathrooms and showers are very small and there wasn't very good washer pressure, but it being an older house, that was not too surprising.
One minor suggestion we would make for the owners is to get more living room furniture; maybe a second loveseat or a larger, more comfy couch. It was hard for our family of four to be very comfortable in that room all together.
The Wi-Fi was excellent. Unfortunately we could not get any cell phone signal in the neighborhood, though.
There is a lovely park and playground within a short walk. That was a pleasant surprise.
The beds were pretty comfortable and the pillows were nice, too.
We thought this cottage was a very good value and perfect for our small family! We hope to return. And Waya was very responsive and helpful.
Whispering Pines is surrounded by trees and is so quaint! We enjoyed a quiet afternoon lounging in the beautiful screened-in porch and found ourselves taking walks around the neighborhood. With the beach only a few blocks away, each morning and night we took leisurely walks along the shore.
You are close enough to New Buffalo, Sawyer, and Three Oaks--all three towns are wonderful places to shop and eat. A great weekend away to disconnect from the world and enjoy the woods, sand, and water in Michiana Shores!
Thank you for sharing this with us!
