For starters we booked at this resort because of the availability for our family of 48 people. We all wanted to stay in cabins and be in close proximity to each other. I'm happy to report this was accomplished!! Our family has been gathering for yearly camp trips for many years now. I write this review comparing White Buffalo Resort to other accommodations we have stay in the past.
Exterior of Resort: PRO: We found the complex to be very clean and well maintained. The front of the complex faces the White River that is about 100 to150 feet down a steep embankment to the river edge. Very nice grass around the cabins (kids could run barefoot) The fog the rolls in from the mountains and settles on the river is a sight to see. CONS: Did have limited grass in camping or RV area. Pool was 3 feet deep. The White River is a spring feed river - so it make the river CLEAR (Beautiful & good fishing) but COLD (for swimming)! To float down a warm river you will need to travel about a hour to the Buffalo River.
Lobby & Check-in/out: PROS: As the other reviews state their staff is very helpful. The registration desk is located in the middle of the complex. The whole check-in process took less then 20 minutes. They had a covered lobby area that was the only location that people could obtain Wi-Fi. Otherwise limited or no cell service is available. CONS: Could tell that some staff members did get a little frazzled with larger group request to pay separately.
Interior of Sisters Cabin (00): PROS: This was a 4 bedroom with a loft and 2 full bathrooms. A gas burning fireplace was available - we really didn't use due to nice weather. The AC was great. The beds and sheets in this unit were nice!! All bath and kitchen towels were provided. The kitchen was stocked with coffeemaker, toaster. No microwave.
Over all we were pleased with this property and it's service. We would recommend this to other. Like anything -- you get what you pay for and ask for!
