Charming & picturesque amenities

At Whispering Springs Wilderness Retreat we have provided our guests with all the necessary amenities to have an unforgettable wilderness vacation. Thoughtfully designed and executed, our amenities enhance the natural beauty of the landscape and allow our guests to experience nature without comprising comfort and convenience.

Communal Campfire Area

Every evening at sundown, we spark the fires of our communal campfire. Guests are encouraged to come sit around the fire, exchange stories, and indulge in some gourmet s’mores. If you are musically inclined we encourage you to bring your instrument for some good ole fashioned campfire sing-alongs.

Saltwater Springs

Designed to blend with the natural environment, our saltwater pool and outdoor hot tub overlook the sparkling waters of our picturesque spring-fed ponds and are nestled in a forest setting.

The Watering Hole Guest Lounge & Bar

A rustic log-framed safari tent is home to Guest Reception and The Watering Hole Guest Lounge & Bar. Indulge in some local craft beer, Prince Edward County wine or one of our signature wilderness-inspired cocktails. We also have a selection of appetizers and glamping souvenirs available for purchase.

Lodge-Inspired Guest Pavilion

Comfortably outfitted with rustic furniture and overlooking our saltwater pool and spring-fed ponds, the lodge-inspired Guest Pavilion is the perfect place to relax and spend a languid afternoon in the country. Our Guest Pavilion is perfectly suited to host small weddings, retreats, and glamping events.

Water Activities

Hop in our canoe or paddle boat and take a leisurely ride around our spring-fed ponds as you watch for local wildlife, including turtles and otters. If you love to fish we encourage you to bring your rod and try to catch some fresh bass or trout to fry up for dinner!

The Forest Chapel

Whether you are looking for a quiet spot for meditation or stumble upon the Forest Chapel during your hike, we suggest taking a seat on one of our live-edge pews and breathing in the beauty of the forest. Our Forest Chapel is accentuated with antique windows and doors and is available for weddings, lectures and other special celebrations.


During your stay be sure to stop by and say hello to John Bailey and Jezebel, our resident horses at Whispering Springs. They love carrots and apples and if you ask John Bailey to ‘say please’ he may even show you his special trick!

Old Growth Forest Trails

Enjoy hiking & exploring over 4 km of  well-maintained trails that wind through the pristine wilderness of Northumberland County.
