We spent our honeymoon trip at Riverside Retreat and decided we loved it so much we would spend our anniversary trip there a year later. The hosts are wonderful and the Woodcreek cabin is perfect for a relaxing romantic get away. The cabin is clean, beautiful and has all that you would want. The screened back porch with the gas...

WOW. My dad is an avid fly fisherman and is notoriously difficult to please. He, my mom, and I spent a week at Riverside Retreat in May and my dad loved it so much that we're going back in September. In addition to beautiful and excellently maintained property, Chris Jackson is a truly superb guide. I don't remember ever seeing...

As lovers of the outdoors, and fishing, we frequent "boutique" cabins in Arkansas. Riverside Cabin is one of the most well-appointed, spacious and delightfully detailed cabins we have stayed in for quite some time. The kitchen was generously stocked, including gourmet coffee! It is apparent that there is much love that has gone into this cabin and its guests! Thank...

My wife and I booked the Woodcreek Cabin for an anniversary trip. She asked for a secluded cabin in the woods with a hot tub. I wanted a place to fly fish. Chris and Carol offered the perfect place for both. The cabin was perfectly clean and had everything we needed to relax and enjoy a romantic weekend. The bed...

My husband, myself, and a couple we are good friends with just returned from a weekend at the Creekside Cabin at the Riverside Retreat. We have a "cabin weekend" once or twice each year and I must say this has been one of my favorite places to stay. The cabin was nicely furnished and decorated. The kitchen was well stocked...

The Jacksons run an excellent operation -- something for just about anyone. The location is prime -- on the White River near the confluence with the North Fork of the White. Chris is an excellent fishing guide, knows the river, and provides his guests a premium experience, rain or shine. We spent 4 days in the Creekside cabin and really...

The Jacksons (owners) are fine and gracious folks. They run a well supplied and clean operation complete with horses on the loose for the children to love and adults to ignore if they so choose. Everything from pepper, coffee, and kitchen to canoes, kayaks and guided trout fishing is there. It is near Mountain View and the Saturday night folk...

I chose the Riverside Retreat for my trout fishing vacation and I was not disappointed. Our host Chris really went the extra mile to ensure that our stay was a good one. This started before we even arrived as we had driven down an abandoned road (do not rely on GPS up here) and gotten stuck. Chris drove his car...

I had the opportunity to attend the fly fishing school hosted by Chris & Carol Jackson at Riverside Retreat. You cannot ask for better host's, nor can you put a price on the knowledge that I gained.

Our White River cabins, with hot tubs and porch fireplaces , and the White River Lodge for family reunions, corporate workshops or church retreats create a White River resort that is very different from other resorts. What makes our place different? ■A much higher level of privacy than you’ll find at other resorts. You’ll find lots of space between our accommodations, only 4 structures spread out over 8 acres. ■A portion of the White River than is not lined with houses, docks and other resorts. A place to enjoy the river, without the crowds. ■A "money back" guarantee that nothing within this website is misrepresented. ■Having 2 canoes & 2 kayaks available FREE for one day for each visit. You have found your place if you want: ■private, cozy cabins with hot tubs and porch fireplaces, ■a comfortable lodge for up to 20 people, ■excellent restaurants just minutes away, and we’ll make your reservations for you, ■free wifi internet access, ■a truly great trout fishery in both the White River and the North Fork River, ■banks, grocery stores, and other conveniences within 5 - 15 minutes, ■having a Guide/Owner provide fishing tips, locations or fly casting lessons at no charge, ■knowing your guide, the owner, loves his job and sincerely cares about your fishing adventure.
