Our season begins late May and runs until mid-October (exact dates may vary by year).
Yes, each log-framed safari tent has a private washroom. There are also washrooms located near The Watering Hole Guest Lounge & Bar and an outdoor shower at Saltwater Springs.
At Whispering Springs Wilderness Retreat we encourage you to embrace the outdoor dining experience. Every tent is outfitted with a mini-fridge and a BBQ. We believe you’ll enjoy preparing and eating your meals in the great outdoors. We also offer a selection of glamping-inspired appetizers at The Watering Hole Guest Bar & Lounge.
Every morning we will provide you with a complimentary breakfast basket delivered to your safari tent, which includes homemade granola, seasonal fruit, and homemade baked good.
Yes, each tent has an ensuite bathroom with hot and cold running water. To help diminish our environmental footprint we use on-demand hot water heaters which may take a few minutes to heat up your water.
Each tent is outfitted with an electric heater to help take the chill off on cold nights, but you are still sleeping in a canvas tent in the great outdoors so we encourage you to pack and dress appropriately.
While we certainly hope that you are blessed with sunny days during your stay at Whispering Springs Wilderness Retreat, we want you to know that rainy days have their special charm. Curl up in bed with a good book, or come spend the afternoon at The Watering Hole Guest Lounge & Bar, where you can meet fellow campers, enjoy craft beer from Northumberland County breweries and play some classic board games.
We love kids though so our future plan is to occasionally host family-friendly summer camp getaways at Whispering Springs Wilderness Retreat. Sign up to our newsletter to stay informed about these events and for 2018 dates!
At Whispering Springs Wilderness Retreat, the price of your room includes accommodation in one of our elegant log-framed safari tents, use of amenities, and a complimentary breakfast basket. Lunch and dinner are not included in the price, however you can purchase a prepared BBQ Basket for an additional cost.
Cellular reception isn’t the strongest in this little corner of the countryside. Depending on your service provider you may not be well connected with the outside world during your stay at Whispering Springs Wilderness Retreat (we like to think of it as a digital detox) and we do not offer WIFI at this time.
