Overview

About the property

This four bedroom, two bath house is located on the banks of the scenic White River in the beautiful Ozark Mountains of north Arkansas between Bull Shoals Reservoir and Cotter, Arkansas, the 'Trout Fishing Capital of the USA'. Available year round for weekly or nightly rental, with a two night minimum, a person can wade fish for the abundant rainbow trout or that trophy brown that's lurking in the crystal clear waters of the river just steps from the spacious back deck. One of the premier fishing areas for wade fishermen is Wildcat Shoals, located less than 400 yards downstream, an easy walk along the river bank. To expand your fishing area upstream or down, launch a boat at the public boat ramp at Wildcat Shoals Access just three hundred yards upstream. If fishing is not what brings you to the White, there is nothing more relaxing than sitting on the deck overlooking the river or around the fire pit and watching the river flow by.

The house has two bedrooms with twin beds in each, one bedroom with a queen bed, and the master suite with both a queen bed and an alcove with a full bed as well as an enclosed bath. The Retreat has two living areas, one with a twin sleeper love seat, and a full kitchen with two refrigerators. Other amenities include a washer and dryer, satellite TV service, and WiFi service.

The Retreat has a non smoking policy.

Rates are $200.00 per night for the first two people, $15.00 for each additional person.

Great place, right on the bank of the White River.

  • 5 of 5

The place is very nice, clean, comfortable, and spacious. Plenty of room for my family of 7 to spread out! The back deck is wonderful, with an amazing view of the river.

Very relaxing, comfortable, place to stay on beautiful White River

  • 5 of 5

This property would be very comfortable for up to 4 couples with 4 separate BR's and 2 full baths. Very clean! Right on the White River looking at high, tree covered bluffs on the other side of the river. Caught our limit of Rainbow trout over a two day stay. Outdoor fire-pit provides the esthetics of a camping venue, but with the comfort of a very nicely equipped home to retire to when the flames die down.

Great place to stay. Boat ramp very close & easy to put in. Fishing wasn't to bad either.

  • 5 of 5

We loved this house. Very big & really liked the layout. Two living rooms with big tv's & direct tv & tv's in all 4 bedrooms. It was decorated so cute for the river. Nice big deck with 2 tables & chairs & cusions & chairs down by the firepit. Big gas grill, a blower to blow off the big deck & a huge fan which we didn't need. The weather was great. It was a peaceful & we really enjoyed staying here. You won't be disappointed in this place. Thanks so much Tim & Chessy Taylor for sharing your retreat with us. Can't wait to go back!

Home Away From Home!

  • 5 of 5

The house with two living areas is perfect for two families. The deck and grounds are in great condition. The river was just as you see in the photo, beautiful. Abundant deer, bald eagles and other wildlife. The river was high and swift during our visit so wading and bank fishing was difficult but by using a guide recommended by Tim I've never caught so many fish in one outing in my life. This was my first time to River Bend Retreat and can't wait to plan another. None of that busy or rushed resort feeling at all. Take the road north across the dam and back south on the other side of the river, very nice drive.

Thanks!

Perfect accommodations and location for our fishing adventure. White River was beautiful and provided fantastic fishing for both brown and rainbow trout. Will definitely return.
