We stayed here on short notice to get some mid July trout fishing in-- and when it was time to leave we couldn't wait to book another trip to this fantastic place. The White River is renowned for being 365 day fishable and it did not disappoint -- rainbows, browns and other beauties are plentiful and gorgeous. The lodge is... More

The lodge is very spacious, beautifully decorated, immaculate, and has amazing views. The attention to detail in every room is very impressive. Everything seems to be made from the highest quality...

We, and another couple from Arizona, spent a 3 night, 2 day stay at Moose and Tina Watson's White River Inn the first week of May, 2016. Their inn is magnificent; the rooms are well appointed and spotless, the main lodge areas are very comfortable and full of stories-to-be-heard, very warm and welcoming. The food was absolutely superb! My wife... More

My husband and I were immediately welcomed into the lodge with a glass of wine and that was just the beginning. It was so nice to reconnect with each other, get to know the other guests, eat wonderful meals, and fly fish together. Moose and Tina made us feel like family. They are so genuine and kind. So glad we... More

i cant describe how beautiful the White River Inn is. Pictures don't come close to the view from the back porch 300 feet down to the river.

Hundreds of fish caught between the four of us during our 2 day fishing/3 night stay. We fly fished day one and spin fished day two. The White River is the real deal for trout fishing...and for occasional bald eagle and multiple blue heron sightings! Not sure where to start with the accommodations...the prior posts capture it well...no exaggerations...though, the... More
