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... More

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... More

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... More

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... More

I had a good time on the river, Chris knows his way around the waters in the area and put me on fish every day. The rooms are nice and it is a good place to get away. There is a big loge that is idea for large groups were I was part of a fly fishing school in April,... More

The Jacksons run an excellent operation -- something for just about anyone. The location is prime -- on the White River near the confluence with the North Fork of the White. Chris is an excellent fishing guide, knows the river, and provides his guests a premium experience, rain or shine. We spent 4 days in the Creekside cabin and really... More

The Jacksons (owners) are fine and gracious folks. They run a well supplied and clean operation complete with horses on the loose for the children to love and adults to ignore if they so choose. Everything from pepper, coffee, and kitchen to canoes, kayaks and guided trout fishing is there. It is near Mountain View and the Saturday night folk... More

I chose the Riverside Retreat for my trout fishing vacation and I was not disappointed. Our host Chris really went the extra mile to ensure that our stay was a good one. This started before we even arrived as we had driven down an abandoned road (do not rely on GPS up here) and gotten stuck. Chris drove his car... More

I had the opportunity to attend the fly fishing school hosted by Chris & Carol Jackson at Riverside Retreat. You cannot ask for better host's, nor can you put a price on the knowledge that I gained. I recently returned from a fishing trip to CA, OR and WA, using what I learned from Chris, I was able to catch... More

The cabin was clean and fully furnished with everything we needed. The porch with the Hot tub was a great way to end the day. We stayed at the Creekside Cabin. Check in was easy. The hosts were accommodating without being intrusive. Everything in the cabin function as it should. We plan to return in the next year or two.
