My husbnd and I stayed in the Riverside Chalet at the River Ridge Inn for four wonderful days. The chalet is clean and comfortable equipped with everythng you need at your fingertips. The view of the river is great and only a short trail to the pier. You can see the trout swimming in the river and watch fly fishermen while they wade along fishing. The squirrels and bird enhance the beauty of River Ridge along with the lovely gardens and pristine grounds. We have a lovely vacation and felt well rested once we headed for home. We will most likely stay there again on our next trip to northern Arkansas and highly recommend it to anyone looking for a quiet, clean, comfortable place to spend some time and possibly fly fish for trout if that is your desire. We also chose John Berry to give my husband fly fishing lessons and he would also come highly recommended. It was a nice trip all the way around.

River Ridge is immaculate. Each cabin is well-stocked with snacks, water, sodas. The grounds are beautiful and carefully tended. The location, right on the North Fork of the White River, is ideal for fly fishing. They do not offer meals, but the innkeeper did provide some muffins and cinnamon rolls for breakast. A lovely place to stay.
Thank you for such a wonderful review. This is what keeps the motor running. Liz and I love to meet such interesting people as yourselves. It is why we still love being innkeepers at River Ridge Inn. Thanks. Jim

The owners are very helpful. I don't fish and my husband does. There is no other place that I would go to and stay. It is clean and beautiful here.
