“Family Get Away”

You will not be disappointed when you stay at White River Inn with Moose and Tina. While the facilities are outstanding, meals wonderful and fishing excellent, the hospitality of Moose and Tina is unmatched anywhere. Thanks Moose for making our trip all that it could be.

I just finished my bachelor party with 9 other guys at the White River Inn and couldn't have asked for a better place. The house was incredible and the second everyone walks in the door, they start taking pictures of the great rooms, the view, and the wildlife collection. It is quite impressive. Moose and Tina were excellent hosts and friendly as can be. It was certainly the most hospitable trip I have been on. In addition, you can't beat the fishing we got there. Each boat caught about 40-50 fish, and it could have easily been more as we moved spots to try to catch some of the larger brown trout in the river. I will/and already have recommended this spot to several people and will continue to sing its praises. Thanks

We just finished up a 3 night 2 day fishing trip at the White River Inn. This was my second trip to stay with Tina and Moose and it was everybit as good as the first time I came. The accommodations, the food, the fishing, and most importantly the gracious hospitality extended to us during this past trip is unparalleled by anything I've experienced during any vacation I've taken in the past. Whether you are an expert fisherman or have never fished at all I encourage you to make plans to go to the White River Inn and stay with Tina and Moose. I know you'll leave feeling like family and, like me, planning my next trip to the White River Inn.

Our goal is to visit all of the states, and our stay at the White River Inn made for a very enjoyable Arkansas trip. Moose and Tina were so warm, welcoming and accommodating. Their hospitality is unparalleled. Their attentiveness to my two sons was particularly appreciated. Tina let Sam feed the hummingbirds and we all sat around enjoying the birds and the spectacular view from the back porch. Moose also was very sweet to the boys, sitting to watch an entire movie with them and showing them around the property in the bucket of his tractor! He also was very informative about things to do in the area. The fishing with Larry was AWESOME! We caught so many trout, there was very little time between bites! Will definitely return someday, hopefully soon. Thanks Moose and Tina!

There is absolutely no place on earth that matches The White River Inn! I am a very well-travelled person and there is no place that comes even close to our stay at The White River Inn. From the location to the attention to detail to the hospitality, everything was absolutely exquisite and no stone was left unturned. This B&B is a first-class experience! I am telling all of my family and close friends that this is a place that that they MUST visit! We will be visiting as often as we can.

Room Tip: Every room is a great experience.

Wow.....my son and I just returned from an experience of a lifetime at White River Inn. This is a 5-star resort, restaurant and fishery all rolled into one, but with the feeling of home provided by Moose and Tina's personal touch and hospitality. We also had two great guides on the river - Ben and Mark, who put us on numerous 20"+ trout. As soon as the car door shut to leave, my son asked...."when can we come back"?. We'll definitely be back... but next time, with the entire family. Thank you M&T for a trip to remember

The best Arkansas Trout Fishing is at the White River Inn,in fact it has the best in the USA. If you want to have the best fishing experience of your life you need to try Arkansas Trout Fishing as you will not be disappointed. We stayed at the maginificient White River Inn which sits atop a 300 foot bluff above the White river which has spectatctular views of the river below and the Ozark Mountains where you can see for hundreds of miles.The views from the expansive deck where we all sat around was superb. The lodge is unbelievable...a real jewel...first class accomodations....this is not a "fish camp" this is top notch as the rooms were huge with great views. We had a party of three couples and our wives loved the place and the fishing was unbelievable. The guides were spot on....patient with rookies and they made the experience so enjoyable.
Now onto the hosts.....Moose and Tina are now our friends...they are extraordinarily friendly and down to earth and we had more laughs and great stories which were complimented by fantasitic meals which you find at the best resturants.

This is great place for any type of outing even if you don't fish.....I plan on holding some meeting there as it will allow solitude and lends itself to a team building experience.

The brochures are very nice but really don't do the White River Inn justice, you just have to see it to believe it.
Being out in the middle of nowhere was not a problem as we tarveled from Florida to the Springfield Mo airport and arrived at the White River Inn withinn 90 minute and it was a beautiful drive.

The Arkansas Trout Fishing, the White River Inn accomodations, food and Moose and Tina the owners/hosts and now friends exceeded our expectations, we will be back!
