The motel is very clean and well kept. The owners are peculiar. It seems as though they have come to believe they own the river. It appears that their efforts to protect their side of the river from erosion have pushed the river to the opposite bank and seriously undercut the opposite bank. I think they hauled in truck loads... More

Thank you for your positive review, the river in front of the main building changed course because of gravel mining without respect of the vegetation over two decades ago. We tried to stop it and it was permitted by the U S Corps of Engineers and a lot of large trees were dozed out to get more gravel. This was... More

It seems as though like a few others on this site I am not alone in stating the owners of this establishment were down right rude and unaware of how to properly deal with customers and problems that may occur. I will start by saying our our first trip here was pleasant. The room was pretty clean and we had... More

we have visiting eminence several times a year for over two decades and always have always stayed at river's edge and it has wonderful every time. The owners have always been great hosts and very helpful. The resort has grown through the years and has been done so nicely along the river with unique iron artwork everywhere. The rooms have...

I stopped by the office to ask about prices and such. It was a Saturday afternoon, I was alone and was not drinking, drunk etc. The lady I spoke to was very hateful and stated over and over again how quite time was 10 pm and they were a family resort and did not tolerate loud people after 10pm. She... More

My two friends and I stayed for three nights at River"s Edge. Our room was huge, clean, and it looked like the bathroom had been recently remodeled. The water pressure was luxurious. Our room had a double bed and a king sized bed. There is every amenity a person would need: a coffee maker, microwave, mini fridge, a tv, a... More

I have been floating the Jack Forks River for 8 years now. This was our first time using the cabins at Rivers Edge (two cabins), for the past 7 years we have used Riverside cabins. Rivers Edge facility is immaculate and comfortable. Had everything we needed. As always, I am the last to leave because I do a complete walk... More

Eminence is a quiet & simple town off of highway 19. Jacks fork, current river, alley springs are some of the most breathtaking rivers I've seen in Missouri. Rivers edge resort is a perfect place to stay if you would like to pay a visit. The couple who own & operate the place are extremely nice & the rooms are... More

This was the first time we visited the area. I looked at the reviews and chose River's Edge because of the high recommendations. They did not let us down. Everything was perfect from making reservations to check out. We stayed in Jack's Cabin which was exactly as described. The bed was amazingly comfortable, too. It was very clean, quiet and... More

The River's Edge River Cabin "Condo" is BEAUTIFUL! It was comfy, nicely furnished, clean, had all the necessities and LOTS of room. And you can't beat the view! It's right on the beautiful Jack's Fork river. You can walk to "downtown" Eminence if you want something else to do after spending a day on the river. I highly recommend floating... More

Overall our stay was comfortable and the cabin (Pine Cabins) was sized well for our family of four (2 adults, 2 children). What we liked: The beds were very comfortable and there was plenty of pillows and extra blankets if needed. There was a good selection of stations for the television and the cell reception was a constant 5-bars AT&T... More
