About the property

House, 3 Bedrooms (See Description), 3 Baths, (Sleeps 2-11)

This getaway is on the banks of the White River about 5 miles north of Cotter, Arkansas and about 11 river miles below Bull Shoals dam.

About 1 acre of property, you can relax on the bank of the river to fish or just enjoy the natural surroundings. Next to the property is a public access ramp to launch your boat if you wish. Rental boats are close by. If you wish, fishing guides can also be recommended to help you enjoy your stay.

You'll have everything you need to be comfortable sleeping, eating, and relaxing at a low price at our getaway. If you want to wade the river, just walk out the door, across the yard, and you're there. The largest shoals on White River is Wildcat Shoals about a 5 minute walk away.

The location on the river is ideal, away from the crowds, but close enough from the dam where more of the big trout hangout. About a 15 minute drive to Mountain Home AR, 15 minute drive to Buffalo River, 30 minute drive to Norfork River, and 20 minutes to Bull Shoals Lake.

It takes just over an hour to drive to Branson, Mo. As you can see, there is a lot of recreation and/or relaxation here or very close by.

About Tommy and Kim Lewis

Having spent much of my younger days on the Buffalo and White Rivers, I fell in love with the Ozark Mountains and its laid back atmosphere. My wife and I have been renting a nearby house several times a year and learned to love the relaxing benefits of this White River paradise. When this property came available, we decided to purchase our own piece of Heaven.

Tommy and Kim Lewis purchased this house in 2017

Why Tommy and Kim Lewis chose Cotter

We love this area, the neighbors are wonderful, and the natural beauty of the Ozark Mountains and the White River are second to none. Whether its the world class trout fishing, antiquing in the nearby communities, or just relaxing on the deck, this property is a wonderful place to stay.

What makes this house unique

Of course the best trout fishing in the nation, the sight seeing of the Ozark Mountains, the small towns in the area, the proximity of Branson and Eureka Springs, as well as Bull Shoals and Norfolk Lakes, all make this a great area to visit. Whether its peace and tranquility, water adventure, spectacular fishing, antiquing, or just laying in the sun, this place has it all at a low price.

The most fantastic place on the White River !!!

  • 5 of 5

We have been coming to the White River for 28 years and have stayed at lots of nice places in the past but nothing was more enjoyable than this Wildcat Shoals home.

The home is absolutely beautiful inside and out and having the ramp right next to the back yard is awesome.

Everything in the house is new or updated,and beautiful.

Tommy & Kim were great to work with and they made sure everything was perfect for us.

In all our years of going to the White River, never have we had a more enjoyable time. I'm know that from now on we will always elect to take this home for our vacation stay.

We could not have been happier, I love when you find something thats even nicer than what you could hope for.

I'm already missing the morning coffee on the balcony watching the fog rise off the river.

Backyard Paradise

Conveniently located at the start of wildcat shoals, you can’t beat being on one of the best parts of the White River. Awesome backdrop to have a camp fire and make memories with family and friends. You will feel at home in the house with all the amenities you need.

This property is located 5 miles north of Cotter, Arkansas on the banks of the beautiful White River approximately 11 river miles below the Bull Shoals Dam. World class trout fishing awaits you just out the door. Walk down and fish off the bank or wade in the river. You can launch your boat at the adjacent public Wildcat access. Wildcat Shoals, the larges shoals on the White River, is 5 minutes walking distance away. When the fishing day is done, relax on the deck, in the yard, or in the house as you enjoy the natural surroundings of the Ozark Mountains. The location on the river is ideal, away from the crowds, but close enough from the dam where more of the big trout hangout. About a 20 minute drive to Mountain Home, you will find many choices for shopping, dining, and antiquing. You are also about 30 minutes away from the Buffalo River, 30 minutes to the Norfolk River, 30 minutes to the Bull Shoals Lake, and a little over an hour from Branson, Missouri.
