Run away to Wilderness Luxury

4.8 on October 03, 2010

This place is the top of my list to run away to the wilderness. Off the beaten path on the top of a bluff with spectacular views and wonderful hosts you cannot get any better than this. We always feel welcome and cannot believe the way our host make you feel at home and will go above and beyond to help you with whatever it is that you need. You have your quite time if you want it and time for great conversations with Tina and Moose. Gentlemen your wife will not mind going on the fishing trip with you when you stay here.

Relaxing lodge on the White River in Arkansas

3.8 on July 07, 2009

Our family completely enjoyed our stay in the mountains at the custom designed cedar lodge overlooking the White River. The rooms were spacious, comfortable and very clean. We spent as much time as possible on the patio gazing down 300 feet to the river and across the river to the mountains. The innkeepers, Tina and Moose Watson made us feel most welcome, and we plan to visit again very soon.

I often pamper my wife for taking such good care of me in my difficulties following brain surgery and this was just that. We had a great time and had some good fishing also. The host and hostess were fun to be with.

Our Stay at The White River Inn

4.6 on May 28, 2009

We had a great Memorial Weekend at The White River Inn which we found on the internet despit the fact it rained almost all weekend. We did manage a great guided fishing trip on Saturday prior to the rain which was set up by the hosts Tina & Moose. They are trememdous hosts & run a first class operation. The view is unbelievable & really good food is close by. It's a little off the beaten path but not hard to find with directions from the hosts & it's worth the drive. The breakfast ala Tina was good every morning & Moose does some fine prep work! We will definately be back to see them again soon.

Best lodge we've stayed in and will return soon, I hope. Also 100+ trout in three days on the White river didn't hurt.
