I fish for trout in arkansas often but don't live there. So I have been to all kinds of places. This place is spectacular. First of all, it is on top of a mountain overlooking the river. That should be enough. But the inn itself is wonderful and a sight to see. I took a lot of pictures. The food...

You will not be disappointed. If you are looking for a beautiful view and surroundings, wonderful hosts, luxurious bedding, great food, and a relaxing time away then give The White River Inn a call.

My husband and I just returned from an incredibly relaxing weekend at the White River Inn. We booked this trip as a graduation present/Father's Day present/birthday present for my husband, and after several very stressful weeks, we just needed some quiet away time. Boy, did we get it! From the minute we stepped through the door we felt like we...

My wife arranged my stay at the White River Inn with my Dad as a gift for my 40th birthday. I couldn't recommend this place more.

I just finished my bachelor party with 9 other guys at the White River Inn and couldn't have asked for a better place. The house was incredible and the second everyone walks in the door, they start taking pictures of the great rooms, the view, and the wildlife collection. It is quite impressive. Moose and Tina were excellent hosts and...
