My husband and I decided to get away for a couple of days and were hoping to just relax. This is a superb place to do just that. The surroundings encourages you to sit back and take a deep breath and let go of the issues of daily life that so frequently consume our minds. The scenery is beautiful; mists... More

Beautiful White River Resort. The Staff is great, the ground extremely well maintained the cabins well maintained as well. The Main lodge, Store and Restaurant are fantastic. The Restaurant overhangs the White River with fabulous views of boats coming and going from the docs and passing by to other fishing spots. Watch humming birds come to drink the sweet nectar...

Our group of 8 went to Gaston's for supper with no reservation, and we were seated within 10 minutes. The food was great, the service was wonderful, and the view of the river was terrific. Dress ranged from shorts and T shirts to business dress. I highly recommend the restaurant!

We flew in for Sunday brunch and what a beautiful area. I can't wait to come back and stay in a cabin and trout fish! The restaurant was charming with all the vintage decor and the home cooked brunch was amazing! Loved the onsite store with everything for fishing and gift shop! Look forward to coming back soon!

The eclectic and historical decorations and look out window towards the white river. The breakfast brunch on Sunday was so so good. Waitstaff very friendly. Walking out on the boat deck afterwards...water was icy cold on July 10th!!!

We are glad you enjoyed the ambiance of our restaurant, and hope that you will make it back for another meal. The water temperature on the White River stays around 52 degrees year round.

We enjoyed a great meal and enjoyed the splendid view of the White River while dining. The Servers were a bit on the testy side, but not enough to spoil the meal = just diminished the tip amount somewhat.

This is a family owned resort and rustic in appearance. I mean that in a very good way, because the rooms look like fishing cabins as is appropriate since each room faces the river.
