Very laid back atmosphere, because Moose and Tina are two of the best people you will ever meet. This felt like a real vacation, because we had absolutely no worries at all once we arrived at the lodge. Everything is well thought out and organized at this beautiful resort. The rooms were spectacular and the view off of the back...

I have to echo my father's sentiments regarding our stay with Moose and Tina. The experience was top notch from start to finish. When you pull up to the lodge the first thing to strike you is the view through the windows. Looking into the house, you can see out the back and across the valley. Breathtaking. Moose and Tina...

A spectacular experience indeed! If you're looking for a five star lodge or "B&B" this is the place to be. My son and I shared the unique adventure of fishing on the world famous White River located in Cotter, Arkansas. We both desired the "best of the best" accommodations and selected the White River Inn as our home base for...

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...

Robin, Thanks so much for your very kind words. Tina and I certainly enjoyed you and Mike. Guests like yourself make our jobs undeniably fun. The stimulating conversations and great stories about your dad were memorable to say the least. We will see you again soon, have fun in Finland!

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.
