We have had the good fortune to fish all over the United States. I can honestly say that I haven't ever had a more enjoyable vacation ever than this one at The White River Inn.

My husband and two sons spent a week with Moose and Tina at their Inn and had such a wonderful time. They loved the location, the lodge, the food, the fishing and all of the great attention. The White River Inn is top notch in every way.

I have to echo my father's sentiments regarding our stay with Moose and Tina. The experience was top notch from start to finish. When you pull up to the lodge the first thing to strike you is the view through the windows. Looking into the house, you can see out the back and across the valley. Breathtaking. Moose and Tina...

A spectacular experience indeed! If you're looking for a five star lodge or "B&B" this is the place to be.

We stayed here on short notice to get some mid July trout fishing in-- and when it was time to leave we couldn't wait to book another trip to this fantastic place.
