Whispering Springs Haven Mountain Retreat and Private Wildlife Refuge

Frametown, West Virginia

It’s a place where bluebirds fly; hummingbirds find replenishment and whitetail deer find refuge beneath silky dogwoods. It’s a place created for those who seek remote seclusion within the tranquility of awe-inspiring natural beauty. Here, a moment in time is time expanded – to disconnect from every day life, and reconnect to source, to self, to each other.™️

Nestled within a beautiful remote valley at the head of a hollow, at the headwaters of Coon Creek, guests find peace, privacy and seclusion within Whispering Springs Haven’s 102acre private wildlife refuge. Perfect for romantic getaways, family “us time”, artists, musicians & nature lovers seeking simplicity and casual luxury void of distractions. Explore the wildlife habitat pond, cool mountain spring waterfalls and sitting pools. Hike private low impact trails to Coon Knob’s mountaintop vista. Wildlife habitats surround the “Hummingbird House”, a smoke-free cabin/chalet style guesthouse filled with natural light & cool mountain breezes. Every room has a view.

Thoughtfully appointed fully equipped amenities designed with all your needs in mind, create the ultimate retreat experience conducive to relaxation, rejuvenation, quiet contemplation, creativity and fun. Soak in an aromatherapy Jacuzzi spa bath; sink into quality bedding within the sounds of silence. View wildlife up-close from the screen porch or wrap-around decks in the morning light or moonlight. Witness raptors soaring and breathtaking stargazing. Read a book or write one. Create art “plein-air” or within well-equipped art and craft studios. Enjoy a large diverse reading, movie and music library. Kids love the children’s creative activity corner.

Designed to sleep 1-10 persons comfortably, Whispering Springs Haven offers private vacation rentals, family/friend reunions, couple getaways and honeymoon retreat packages.
