Stayed in Cabin 26, one of the “sweetheart” cabins Easter weekend and thoroughly enjoyed our stay. Let me note if you are confused by the number of the cabin because all literature states White Pines has 25 cabins, the Park skipped lucky number 13, hence we technically stayed in their 25th cabin. There are two sweetheart cabins (25 and 26) and although most information about the sweetheart cabins lead you to believe they are larger than the other 23 cabins, all in fact the same size with regards to interior space. The only difference in physical space is they add a love seat to sweetheart cabins (see photos) which for us was a nice addition to sit comfortably by the fireplace. And if you have not been to White Pines, their website map of the cabin locations is a bit deceiving as Cabin 26 appears to be more secluded from the rest, when in reality it could be renamed Cabin 1 since it is the most visible to traffic and visitors of all cabins. It is also the cabin located right behind their visitor “photography” sign. The cabin is what is to be expected of those built in the C.C.C. era with being rustic, but warm and charming. The bathroom was a nice size with hand made soap which could be used as shampoo too. Small refrigerator and coffee pot was a nice addition and if you need ice a bucket is supplied which you can have filled at White Pines Inn anytime the restaurant is open (with a friendly smile may I add).
Ahha to White Pines Inn, ate there Easter morning and the breakfast was terrific; clearly you can tell the baked goodies were homemade and the breakfasts meats were plentiful and delicious. A hike after breakfast was a must for sure!
White Pines Cabins are a nice option to camping fall through spring when you can take advantage of the gas fireplace and the comforts of the indoors. If I returned to the cabins I would probably opt for #22-25 as they are spread out a little more and have a nice interior view of the campfire rings and a bit more privacy from the many visitors to White Pines Inn.
Only negative of the area as stated by others is the railroad tracks which run along the north end of the park; although not a big issue in a cabin I can understand how the continual horn blowing at night can be troublesome to sleep in the campground.
