A Warm Welcome …
We desired a place where we could spend time in nature ~ while having a place we could bring our families and friends to be with us. Together we can create memories of new adventures and discover new paths. Sometimes, there is nothing better than getting together with friends for some games and activities (swimming, boating, hiking, picnics).
Knowing that others desired a similar place ~ now owners at Whispering Pines have it. You can too!
When you are ready, we welcome your visit. Once you pass through the Whispering Pine’s gate, you will find nature at its finest. Join us where every sunset offers a new view.
We thank you for taking a moment to visit our website. Here is a quick stroll through the vision we have for the Whispering Pines community.
When Dottie and I happened upon these vast acres, we knew something magnificent had been found. The Preserve at Whispering Pines is the result of a magical moment we had as we stepped from the car. We heard the pines whisper … and knew we had found a new home. Isn’t it time for you to hear the pines whisper, “welcome home”?
The Preserve is designed to be a sanctuary for owners, families, friends and wildlife. We know that Owners’ and nature can co-exist in harmony.
Our goal is to protect property values without creating overbearing restrictions. We encourage mutual respect as well as common sense. The Owners’ Association will promote community values.
A sign at the corner of Pine Lake Road identifies the community to the public. An electronic access gate is located about 500 feet up the road and a covered bridge spans a stream and leads to Phase I.
After passing the community “post office” and traveling a short distance, you will see the Whispering Pines clubhouse and the beach area. The clubhouse provides a central meeting place for community activities.
To enhance and preserve the environment, we are limiting the development of the over 430 acres of beautiful rolling Tennessee hills to approximately 65 lots. This will leave about 150 acres of common land that will be deeded to the Whispering Pines Owners' Association.
As part of The Preserve, Pine Lake is a private 18 ½ -acre spring fed lake, entirely within, and owned by, the Whispering Pines Owners' association.
Again, thinking about the environment, no gasoline motors are permitted. For those who love to fish, the lake was stocked about 30 years ago with large mouthed bass, bluegill (sunfish), crappie (pronounced croppie) and catfish. Trout were added in 2008.
If you are like most, you will find the sound of water is extremely relaxing. Something magical happens when the sound of a babbling stream is heard. Enjoying the water can occur through swimming, boating, fishing, or just sitting back and watching the sunset reflect on the calm blue of the water. Keeping that in mind, a second lake was built as part of phase II. There are streams, woods, abundant wildlife, wildflowers, several ponds, and small waterfalls. These provide endless opportunities for exploration and reflection.
5-10 miles of trails for hiking, biking, and walking are expected. Other amenities include gardens, walks, gazebo, picnic/playground and a storage facility. A community dock with boat launching ramp is planned for the opposite side of the lake.
A wildlife viewing area is planned for the north end of Pine Lake. This is just one of the areas "reserved" for wildlife. The area is particularly suited for birds, deer, etc. A small parking area with a trail and boardwalk will lead to a raised viewing platform.
On a more mundane note and more as a FYI: utilities are underground to preserve as many trees as possible. Sewerage will be handled by septic systems installed by owners.
