It’s seeing the photos of the fields of gold at Whimberly that cause me to make time for my seasonal visits, even when I’m busy with my projects, and neglecting to explore.


The landscaping is superb; I especially like the trees and rocks. This visit was made on foot; some seasons there are more trails for riding horses.


A spa retreat is available on the grounds, with two pools, and outdoor lounging for soaking up the sun. There’s a massage room with all the appropriate amenities. Wouldn’t we love to spend a week here in real life.


There’s also a well-appointed kitchen. Whimberly is rated Adult, but no nudity is allowed.


There are many seating areas to choose from, especially on the shore. The photo above shows my favorite.
