“"Can't wait to go back!"”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 24, 2012

All the other reviews tell most of the story, but I need to tell you the "rest if the story". Cabins, river view, boats, ALL excellent. Owner knows her staff because in her absence Charles was left in charge. He made us feel like we were his favorite cousins, visiting for the hundredth time. This being our first Trout fishing trip, I needed serious teaching. Charlie and James taught me all aspects of the art of trout fishing. Great job gentlemen, we had only fished for 6 hrs and caught easily over 22 trout. Good catch for a couple of rookies!
Kept our limit and threw the rest back. What fun! Thanks guys for helping a couple rookie fishermen!
Cabin was everything one would want. Rustic look but clean and well kept.
Nestled in on the White River, between Flippin and Bull Shoals AR. Leaves are turning colors and its too pretty to describe. Drove around the area Friday evening to see 46 deer grazing within 1/4 mile of resort.
We'll be back!

Room Tip: Room #35 has a perfect view of river. I'll ask for it again. Second floor with a great view.

Best birthday gift a man could get is a weekend at Stetsons. As a novice when it comes to fishing, this trip was a hit! Wife and I caught our limit and then some. Have NEVER enjoyed a trip as I did this one.
Facilities are more than one could ever ask for. Staff makes you feel like a first cousin you haven't seen in years. Everything here is First Class. Cabins are so perfect in all aspects, you don't want to leave. Clean beyond all exceptions. Housekeepers go way above and beyond keeping the facilities in great shape and perfect when you walk in the door.

Owner was off this weekend, but when you have a staff like she has, you can take all weekends off. Charles was extremely knowledgeable on his craft. He is a real Trout guide. Although we didn't hire a guide, he told us how and where to fish. He personally made this trip a success.

Planning next trip now. Speaking with another guide, James, other pointers were shared. Basically everyone here at "Stetsons on the White" were absolutely the best we could have asked for.

Room Tip: THE ONLY NEGATIVE: bring your own coffee Mug! All dishes were fine, but the coffee cups are small. B...

Stetson's on the White is a fabulous facility to base out of for your trout fishing trip. Very nice comfortable cabins and rooms available will accommodate groups of any size. Located right on the river, Stetson's can set you up with great guides and gear. Our friends have come here for 20 years and it is consistently great!

I've lost count of the number of times I've been to Stetson's. It is truly one of the Ozarks hidden gems. I have never met a friendlier staff, and the guides go out of their way to make sure you have a good time, whether you're after quantity rainbow trout, or quality trophy trout, they know the river, and how to put you on the fish...safely!! I've been other places, but this is the place I'll choose if I'm making the plans.

Room Tip: All the rooms are great, from the one bedroom, all the way up to the 5 bedroom cabins.

We've been going to Stetsons for about 15 years and just returned from a trip to avoid Hurricane Gustav. Stetsons is a terrific place whether for a family or just a couple. The owners and staff are incredible. Fishing and guides are terrific and the facilities are fantastic. Each time we end a trip I start thinking about our next one. We've been in all seasons and they're all great. Restaurants in the area are wonderful and the entire locale is so refreshing. What a beautiful way to start and end the day looking out on the White River. And, in between these highlights are many enjoyable and relaxing opportunities.

There is no question that if you desire to fish on the White River, Stetson's is the best place to stay. The owner is very kind as well as the entire staff. The location can't be beat and the fishing is terrific. This city slicker was catching dinner by the second day but only with the assistance of the very kind staff. We visited other cabins in the area and are most impressed with Stetson's.

The View of the White River is breathtaking. The peacefulness of the resort is wonderful. The Owner and their employees are kind and helpful. Fishing was out of this world!
The food was great, the best ribs I have ever eaten. The rooms are wonderful and the atmosphere of each cabin is great.

I will return there year after year if at all possibel
