About Whispering Pines Lodge

Custer County Nebraska is famous for its abundant wildlife and canoeing and kayaking on its spring-fed rivers. Whispering Pine Lodge, two minutes from the South Loup River, located in the heart of the Seven Valleysoffers perfect privacy and stunning natural beauty; 21 ACRES of native meadows surrounded by mature trees at the end of a mile-long driveway. Wild poppies, cacti, and year-round cascades of wildflowers will delight you on your deer trail walks through your private forest. Turkey and deer are in the yard every day. Listen and watch as the pine tree tops whisper and sway, telling you that in the outside world there is a heavy wind, but only a soft breeze in this protected valley. This is why pioneers selected this quiet and cozy self-contained homestead. There are two wells. The modern well serves the house and two outside hydrants; one of which services the full camper hookup with power and septic. The well connected to the windmill could be made serviceable again. That well serves the pioneer ice-house and elaborate cistern and livestock tank system. At the crown of the historic homestead is the amazing sod house, restored with a new roof. The soddy was the feature of a UNL historical study and featured in Country Home magazine, is considered one of the most significant and sound in Nebraska. Organic vegetable gardens are established and prolific. Bumper crops! The perennials start the flower garden every spring. Just water and watch them bloom! Horses? Yes. The century barn is ready for your horses. The property has full perimeter fencing plus privacy gates. The vintage chicken coop is one of the best in the country, ready for your farm fresh eggs. A double large indoor-outdoor kennel can keep your dogs or milk goats cozy and healthy. The house is a conversion from the historic granary, now a large log lodge with new furnace, new 80 gallon hot water heater, new plumbing and modern wiring, full of new windows and ready to enjoy! Plan ahead for your showing. The owners would like 48 hour notice. Theylike their privacy, too!
