Experience the Wild West in Luxury!
When you think of Western United States, you think of the early pioneer settlers. Rolling below the beautiful cliffs of Zion and Bryce, our pioneer ancestors experienced the simple yet breathtaking landscapes through the windows of their covered wagons.
Enjoying these beautiful parks while staying in a Conestoga wagon is unique, spiritual and down right exciting. WhisperingPines Glamping Resort allows you to do it with all the luxuries and conveniences of the 21st century.
Whispering Pines Glamping Resort is easily accessed off HWY 89, perfectly located only 35 min from Zion National Park and 40 min from Bryce Canyon. (Right in the Middle)
WP Resort currently has 6 Conestoga Wagons located in the most beautiful valley.
After entering through our unique gate, you will meander 1/2 mile under towering Ponderosa Pines, through our flowing grassy meadow, below the white cliffs, past grazing mule deer up into our hidden getaway full of waterfalls, manicured bluegrass sod and old time relics from past.
Our Wagons are great for couples, solo adventurers, small families and even large family reunions. If your family is larger than 28 individuals, we have a large grass lawn for pitching tents and additional parking areas for campers as well.
1. Each wagon sleeps 4 with 1 king bed and 1 bunk bed (Two of our wagons sleeps 6: 1 king bed and 2 bunk beds)
2. Each private bathroom has a shower, sink, toilet and heater. Towels will be provided.
3. Each wagon has a small refrigerator, a microwave, Coffee maker, BBQ grill, picnic table and a fire ring.
Along with the national parks, our guests enjoy all the activities we provide such as a horse shoe pit, many hammocks for reading and relaxing, 2 separate waterfalls and streams for the kids to play in. A 4,000 sqft grassy lawn to play soccer and volley ball. We also have a basketball hoop, a trampoline, a large swing, a tomahawk throw (adult supervision needed) a tree hut with kitchen for the little ones, beautiful hills for hiking, and a huge meadow for flying kites and playing kick ball. We even have special fairy huts and lightning bugs in the trees bringing that fun magical atmosphere.
The large grassy meadow lying beneath the white cliffs is always full of grazing mule deer. Make sure to bring your binoculars so you can see them up close.
We have gone to great lengths to display some of the original history of our valley. The site is carefully decorated with original features such as the two seater out house used by Old Grandpa Tom and his wife. Also, Seamans Canyon was originally homesteaded by John and Alice Seaman in the mid 1800 s. They had a lumber mill. We found their big pile of scrap wood and have made some neat displays of items commonly found in lumber mills at that time.
ABOUT US, THE BARRICK FAMILY -
(Fun History) 2016, Dr. Robert Barrick and Family of 6 kids left their 6000 sqft home on the golf course in Cedar City, and moved into a 700 sqft, 1960 s hunting cabin off the grid. At the time, it only had one bedroom and a loft. With a record breaking winter (350% of normal) the Barricks grew close as a family and learned how to do hard things as they labored together to help build what you see today as Whispering Pines.
That first year proved to be a defining and character building time for them all. From their generator shed burning down leaving them with little power for over a month, to their daughter being attacked by a bear and courageously chasing it off the mountain. The Barricks had a year to remember.
As you sit and watch the deer peacefully graze out into the meadow, you can hear the wind whisper through the pines. Listen closely and you will hear Ol Tom Haycock welcoming you to his cherished valley.
Grocery stores are 20 min away so make sure to stop at a grocery store on your way in. Coming from the North, shop at Panguitch, Coming from the south, shop at Terry s or Family Dollar in Orderville. If coming from Cedar City, shop in Cedar city.
There is a gas station only 2 min away that provides your normal gas station food along with some pretty good steak burgers, chicken wings, and hotdogs.
