These cabins and lodge are meticulous and in a prime location. The owners/managers could not be nicer. Cute accommodations that are spotless!! Boat dock right on the Norfork River and very convenient to downtown Norfork.

With Covid crisis looming, and a need to have a safe change of scenery, we thought we’d take a drive up from Hot Springs, AR and stay socially distanced while enjoying sone fishing. I had been forewarned that the river may be high and running fast. A referral from my brother brought us to meet Jim and Liz at River Ridge. Our ‘cabin’ was a full house with master king bed downstairs in addition to a beautiful sleep lift upstairs as well as a fold out futon in the master bedroom. Our deck provided a gas and a charcoal grill. The neat view of the river and the fishing dock was gorgeous and although we caught zero fish, we thoroughly enjoyed ourselves on the gorgeous grounds. The place was immaculate, extremely comfortable and Jim very helpful with fishing tips (we are both novices). A lot of privacy complimented by the rushing river and changing fog below. We hope to travel back and learn some new tricks if there’s room for us in the fall. I understand corporate retreats take place here at The River Ridge Flyfishing Academy. Thoroughly recommend!! Great time. Many thanks to our lovely host and hostess.

If you're looking for nice and great value...you just can't beat River Ridge. Cottages are very tastefully decorated and they have all the essential you need for cooking inside or out. We've always enjoyed our stays there and will go back every chance.

Cabin was very clean, and the grounds along the river are lovely and perfectly maintained. The owner could not have been more helpful with making sure we had everything necessary to grill on the deck.
