2,300 acres of forests, lakes and streams at the W. Alton Jones Campus of URI, West Greenwich Rhode Island.
The Whispering Pines Conference Center is located in the heart of two thousand three hundred acres of forests, lakes and streams in West Greenwich, Rhode Island. We are part of the W. Alton Jones Campus of the University of Rhode Island. Whispering Pines is the perfect place to enjoy lush Rhode Island forests and tranquil waters.
At the Whispering Pines Conference Center, meeting participants will be able to do what you want them to... “think”. Our beautiful, peaceful country estate with over 2,300 acres of forests, lakes, and streams ensures that you can “think” and work in a distraction-free environment. We offer overnight accommodations for 64 people, four conference rooms that can host meetings from 18 – 100 guests, high speed internet access, and a variety of audio/visual equipment to support a productive meeting.
Our surroundings offer many activities for groups to enjoy. Take some time to canoe around our lake or go hiking on one of our many trails. Enjoy a game of tennis, basketball, volleyball, bocce, horseshoes, or croquet in our recreation field.
In the evening, enjoy our beautiful 1,700 square foot mahogany deck that is covered with an illuminated awning with an unobstructed view of our lake. Our guests take advantage of its charm and beauty throughout the day to use as break out space as well as in the evenings during the cocktail hour and after dinner socializing. In addition, we have a peaceful campfire area located at the edge of Lake Eisenhower. It offers a large circle of Adirondack chairs surrounding the campfire. Roasting marshmallows and making S’mores will bring you and your associates back to carefree childhood memories as you sit and get to know the members of your group on a more personal level.
We are open year round so any month of the year is a great time to plan a conference at Whispering Pines. During the colder months, the fieldstone fireplaces located in the Whispering Pines Lodge, Sycamore Lodge, and Nettles Lodge are great areas to enjoy a roaring fire and visit with your guests while the snow falls outside.
Whatever time of the year you plan to visit Whispering Pines, know that the simple country charm of our facility and the hospitality of our long-term staff are here to welcome you.
