We have flown and driven into Gastons all year round. It is really special in the hottest part of the summer and the middle of winter. The river is 52 degrees regardless of the weather. That makes it warm in the winter and cool in the summer. The staff are real classic "Andy of Mayberry" friendly. They will do anything... More

I have been visiting Gastons for about 12 years. I first came to bring a young grandson fishing. I have returned many times since with other grandchildren and friends. In the last few years I have come simply to relax and enjoy the peace and quiet. The scenery and sounds of the river can't be beat. The cabins are very... More

Can't ask for more if you are looking to relax, fish, or fly in. What a great place in Gaston's Resort. Go for the Fall colors and some of the best trout fishing in Arkansas. Few places can compete with my fishing experiences in Michigan or Ontario, but I was pleasantly surprised to find a fully operational fishing experience in... More

I grew up in Mountain Home and left after high school in 1972. But, after all of these years having lived and traveled to many memorable spots and eating at memorable restaurants, Gaston's remains on my all-time favorites list of places to revisit. Our family gathered there after my mother's funeral in 1994 and I was happy to introduce my... More

This is a beautiful place to walk, observe, meet people, be wined and dined at the highest level in a very classy way. Yet, you could dress casual. We really enjoyed looking at the beautiful views, staying at quaint vintage hotels, exploring, watching wildlife including the peacocks, deer, squirrels, chipmunks and more. Binoculars are a must.

We had a very enjoyable time at Gaston's. We are planning a yearly trip. Our guide, Ritchie, was excellent, the restaurant was nice (very rustic)...loved it, and the bar was enjoyable (very nice bartender). The cabin was comfortable and clean. There is an arcade room for the kids and a store for anything you might have left behind. Very peaceful... More

I am local and take visitors to the restaurant quite often. The restaurant and view of the river are amazing. The decor is also a lot of fun to look at. Last time I took friends there for breakfast the wait staff was not friendly and down right rude. The waiter was very curt. There was only one other table... More

My brother came down from St Louis and my sister & her husband came up from Dallas in their motorhome. We thoroughly enjoyed Cabin #1 at the end - quiet, peaceful, great river view- with a big fireplace. We had three great meals at the restaurant overlooking the river. Trout was delicious. Service was excellent (Dee & Cindy). Our one... More
