About the property

Luxury 1 Bedroom + 1 Bath Set Amongst Soaring Pines

SBCA #20150335


An enchanting forest oasis of tranquility awaits you in a quiet peaceful setting that sits at 6300’ elevation nestled on a large ¼ acre private lot of beautiful soaring pine trees.

Whispering Pines Cottage is one of those places where time slows down, and good times seem to linger longer. Whether you are traveling alone or visiting as a couple, you’ll feel at home and away from it all at Whispering Pines Cottage.

Snuggle up by an old stone fireplace and enjoy a cup of hot cocoa. Enjoy reading a book in the garden near the gentle trickling sounds of the pond. Meditate on the meditation boulders while listening to the melodic sounds of wind chimes in the distance. Meander along the tranquil garden walking paths and play bocce ball or horseshoes. Savor a glass of wine on the deck under millions of stars. Revitalize by hiking the forest trails only steps away from the Acorn Trail that connects with the Pacific Crest Trail (PCT). In the fall, this trail offers one of the best places to view the brilliance of fall colors. Enjoy a short ½ mile walk to Wrightwood Village and meet the locals in the charming shops, restaurants, bakery, fudge shop and Farmer’s Market held every Friday afternoon 4-7pm. Hit the slopes at Mountain High Resort and North Pole Tubing Park just 3 miles away. Rock climb Mormon Rocks or glide high in the trees through the pine forest with Big Pines Zip Line Tours.

Whatever adventure awaits you, we invite you to enjoy our newly renovated custom cottage just completed in December 2015. Whispering Pines Cottage has been designed to offer the ultimate experience for those seeking an unmatched luxury retreat.

We relied on natural stone, brushed granite, marble, tongue and groove wood planks, vaulted wood beamed ceilings, an open concept floor plan design to inspire relaxation and allow you to feel pampered during your stay.

We do our best to provide an exceptional experience for our guests! If there's anything we can do to make your stay special, please don't hesitate to ask!

We hope to welcome you to the newest luxury retreat in Wrightwood!

*We offer WiFi (1 GB Fiber - 1 Gbps/1Gbps Broadband) and DirecTV for your enjoyment.

About Wendy

We've been skiing/snowboarding at Mountain High Resort for many years. We also love to hike and take photographs in this area and we both share many wonderful memories from our experiences in the San Gabriel Mountains.

Wendy purchased this cottage in 2013

Why Wendy chose Wrightwood

A few years ago, we began restoring this property with the help of local contractors and friends. We are excited to finally be able to enjoy it with our family/friends and delighted to be sharing it with you as well. We invite you to share in building your own wonderful memories while you stay in our luxury mountain retreat.

What makes this cottage unique

We have always loved the ease of getting to the San Gabriel mountain range. The charming town of Wrightwood is only 15 minutes from I-15 and Mountain High Resort is only 3 miles from our cottage. Whispering Pines Cottage is located in a quiet neighborhood and in a GREAT LOCATION in Wrightwood! It's only a 0.5 mile walk to Wrightwood Village where restaurants and shops abound and we are only steps from Acorn Trail which connects to the Pacific Crest Trail. We love the large .25 acre wooded lot on which our cottage rests and provides privacy amongst the soaring pines.

Guestbook comments from the owner

We don't want to leave! Whispering Pines Cottage is cozy, charming and chic. The kitchen is well stocked with everything you need. A welcoming note with waffle mix was a kind touch. The granite and marble counter tops and hammered copper sinks are beautiful! This place reminds us of our suite at Enchantment Resort in Sedona, Arizona. This is a 4 star experience less than 2 hours from our home! The expansive yard is like a meditation garden with wind chimes, inviting paths and areas to sit. The neighborhood is perfect for afternoon walks. We enjoyed lunch at the Grizzly Cafe - great homemade potato chips & sandwiches. We stopped into Cinnamon's Bakery for a Cinnamon Roll - it was delicious! And we enjoyed going into the local shops in town. Thank you for sharing your charming cabin with us, we loved every single minute of our 4 night stay with you!

Relaxing cabin in the mountain

  • 5 of 5

Thank you so much for the use of your wonderful cabin in the woods! My sister and I had a great time relaxing and re-connecting. We explored the local Wrightwood shops and restaurants. Spent time enjoying your great backyard and quiet, clean mountain air. We even made a trip to Dana Point to enjoy the beach. We loved the relaxing music selection as well and all the natural light the many windows provided...great for puzzles! Thanks again for helping to make this a memorable and relaxing vacation for us.

Wonderful unique place to stay

  • 5 of 5

Magnificent stay in an elegant and so comfortable cottage. A warm welcoming and inspiring place to stay where we could appreciate a very pleasant and peaceful atmosphere. We've been very grateful to find this harmonious nest where we could rest and enjoy the relaxing feng shui/ zen like garden in this beautiful mountain area. Everything was perfect in this heaven on Earth, filled with so many good vibes. A big thank to the owners, Wendy and Steve, for having hosting us in their resourcing home before going back in our country, Switzerland. We won't forget the Whispering Pines and its great playlist !

Perfect cottage!

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I recently spent a week at this residence, Whispering Pines cottage. We would highly recommend this to any couple looking for a quiet and comfortably serene getaway with all the amenities. The location was perfect for quick access to world class hiking in particular at Big Pines and Grassy Hollow recreation areas which all connected to the Pacific Crest Trail. Th trails had stunning views and we were often the only people as far as we could see. The rest of the time we felt very relaxed at the cottage reading, listening to music, playing bocce ball, and overall enjoying all the peacefulness this lovely cottage had to offer. Communication with Wendy was exceptional and we more than appreciate that she and her husband are willing to share this beautiful spot. We look forward to our return.

A little Slice of Heaven

  • 5 of 5

We recently spent the weekend at the Whispering Pines Cottage in Wrightwood California and had an amazing time. We found the cottage to be both Charming and elegant at the same time. Whispering Pines had everything necessary to fulfill our romantic getaway , and the level of comfort that we had was beyond our wildest imagination from the time we woke up to the time our heads hit the pillow at night. The memories we made this weekend will be shared for many years to come , we will certainly recommend Whispering Pine Cottage to all of our friends.

Tanquil stay with careful attention to the details

  • 5 of 5

Had an amazing stay at this little gem nestled in the tees high above Wrightwood. Upon entering the cabin I was instantly aware of the careful attention that had been given to focusing on the small and large details of making this place stand a part from the others. Everything was immaculately clean along with everything you need being provided. If I'm ever back in the area this would be my first choice.
