The room was comfortable and clean. The resort and secluded and quite, but still close to some great trout fishing! The family that runs this is knowledgeable, charming, and willing to do whatever necessary to make your stay enjoyable.

Exceeded expectations. My husband and I had our almost 3 year old in tote and just wanted to get away for a couple nights. We loved just fishing and exploring the property. She was in heaven picking flowers and playing with the 2 friendly horses roaming free on the property. We did a campfire every night, the stars are so...

This is a quiet, nice place. We enjoyed the back deck with a fireplace and hot tub. We drove to neighboring town to visit the Blanchard Springs Caverns. It was 25 minute drive to a large grocery store. I was able to relax and read a whole book while we were here.

I've been staying at Riverside Retreat two to three times a year for the past eight years now. This is a super place to stay clean and the people are most friendly. I fish with Chris Jackson 10 to 12 times a year. Chris is a very knowledgeable guide and knows his waters well.

Drove 10 hours and showed up to the property. Went to check in and was told just go to the house and it was open. Walked in and it was more than any of us had expected. Everything worked flawlessly. House was very clean. Did not have to do anything special to make things work. Was like living in a...

We spent our honeymoon trip at Riverside Retreat and decided we loved it so much we would spend our anniversary trip there a year later. The hosts are wonderful and the Woodcreek cabin is perfect for a relaxing romantic get away. The cabin is clean, beautiful and has all that you would want. The screened back porch with the gas...

WOW. My dad is an avid fly fisherman and is notoriously difficult to please. He, my mom, and I spent a week at Riverside Retreat in May and my dad loved it so much that we're going back in September. In addition to beautiful and excellently maintained property, Chris Jackson is a truly superb guide. I don't remember ever seeing...

As lovers of the outdoors, and fishing, we frequent "boutique" cabins in Arkansas. Riverside Cabin is one of the most well-appointed, spacious and delightfully detailed cabins we have stayed in for quite some time. The kitchen was generously stocked, including gourmet coffee! It is apparent that there is much love that has gone into this cabin and its guests! Thank...

My wife and I booked the Woodcreek Cabin for an anniversary trip. She asked for a secluded cabin in the woods with a hot tub. I wanted a place to fly fish. Chris and Carol offered the perfect place for both. The cabin was perfectly clean and had everything we needed to relax and enjoy a romantic weekend. The bed...

My husband, myself, and a couple we are good friends with just returned from a weekend at the Creekside Cabin at the Riverside Retreat. We have a "cabin weekend" once or twice each year and I must say this has been one of my favorite places to stay. The cabin was nicely furnished and decorated. The kitchen was well stocked...

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
Our White River cabins, with hot tubs and porch fireplaces , and the White River Lodge for family reunions, corporate workshops or church retreats create a White River resort that is very different from other resorts. What makes our place different? ■A much higher level of privacy than you’ll find at other resorts. You’ll find lots of space between our accommodations, only 4 structures spread out over 8 acres. ■A portion of the White River than is not lined with houses, docks and other resorts. A place to enjoy the river, without the crowds. ■A "money back" guarantee that nothing within this website is misrepresented. ■Having 2 canoes & 2 kayaks available FREE for one day for each visit. You have found your place if you want: ■private, cozy cabins with hot tubs and porch fireplaces, ■a comfortable lodge for up to 20 people, ■excellent restaurants just minutes away, and we’ll make your reservations for you, ■free wifi internet access, ■a truly great trout fishery in both the White River and the North Fork River, ■banks, grocery stores, and other conveniences within 5 - 15 minutes, ■having a Guide/Owner provide fishing tips, locations or fly casting lessons at no charge, ■knowing your guide, the owner, loves his job and sincerely cares about your fishing adventure. We promise that any question you have will be answered by the owners honestly. We do not want dissatisfied guests because someone "stretched the truth." ... more   less

“Though free wifi is provided, the area is quite rural so talk with the owners about which rental homes have the best reception.”
