Our group of 8 went to Gaston's for supper with no reservation, and we were seated within 10 minutes. The food was great, the service was wonderful, and the view of the river was terrific. Dress ranged from shorts and T shirts to business dress. I highly recommend the restaurant!

We flew in for Sunday brunch and what a beautiful area. I can't wait to come back and stay in a cabin and trout fish! The restaurant was charming with all the vintage decor and the home cooked brunch was amazing! Loved the onsite store with everything for fishing and gift shop! Look forward to coming back soon!

The eclectic and historical decorations and look out window towards the white river. The breakfast brunch on Sunday was so so good. Waitstaff very friendly. Walking out on the boat deck afterwards...water was icy cold on July 10th!!!

We are glad you enjoyed the ambiance of our restaurant, and hope that you will make it back for another meal. The water temperature on the White River stays around 52 degrees year round. In the summer months, the coolest place to be is right on the river. Thank you for taking the time to write a review! Have a...

My wife and I have been flying into Gaston's White River Resort for years. We have never stayed over here having always come for the restaurant and day-hiking the grounds. Immaculate grass runway is kept in top shape. plenty long and wide for a variety of aircraft. The restaurant is built out over the river and has amazing river views....

We enjoyed a great meal and enjoyed the splendid view of the White River while dining. The Servers were a bit on the testy side, but not enough to spoil the meal = just diminished the tip amount somewhat.

Okay...this is our third year to visit so you know by that we love the place. Each time we find the accommodations very clean upon arrival. The staff continues to please with updates daily.

We are so pleased that you love our resort, and continue to come back! We are always in the process of updating cottages, but with 79 accommodations we can only get to so many at a time. The redwood decks get a lot of tree sap on them, and that is what causes the buildup you mentioned. We do power...

This is a family owned resort and rustic in appearance. I mean that in a very good way, because the rooms look like fishing cabins as is appropriate since each room faces the river. Check-in was flawless and the host friendly. The room was a amply furnished and very clean. No problems were experienced and no complaints whatsoever. Towels were...

A beautiful resort with great facilities. It's an older resort but don't let looks deceive you. The views are really nice. This morning the river looked clear and almost like you could wade across. This evening the river is high from the water release from the dam and now looks entirely different. The cabins are ok but book early if...

Thank you for the wonderful review! The upkeep here never stops. As soon as we are done cutting the grass on one side of the property, it's time to start on the opposite end. We also try to make improvements each year to the cottages. This year we were able to put a hardwood floor in several of the cottages,...
