Overview

Photos and Description of this 4 bedroom holiday home in Arkansas

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 $175.00 per night for the first two people, $15.00 for each additional person.

Perfect Vacation House

  • 5 of 5

This house was perfect for our family get together. It was comfortable and well furnished with everything you could possibly need in the kitchen. The neighbors were friendly and the spot on the river was perfect. There was a nice shallow area for the kiddos to play and although we did not fish, it would be a fisherman's dream. The house had two living areas and there was plenty of room for everyone even when it rained. I would stay there again, and hopefully will get to!

Wonderful Experience at the Riverbend Retreat

  • 4 of 5

My wife, son and I enjoyed a wonderful Father's Day weekend at the Riverbend Retreat on the White River. The accommodations were as advertised and the positive reviews on VRBO accurately reflected our experience. The property owners were very nice and very responsive. They answered all of our questions and followed up several times to make sure all was well. The house is set up well and we found everything that we needed for a comfortable stay.

The house is located on a great section of the White River at the head of Wildcat Shoals. The yard slopes gently down to the river for an easy walk up and down.

We will definitely be back to the Riverbend Retreat.

Peace and tranquility on the doorstep.

  • 5 of 5

The home is very comfortable with all the essentials provided. The setting is awesome with the White River in the foreground and the backdrop of natural indigenous forest. The birdlife adds to the tranquil setting with frequent sightings of herons and even the occasional fish eagle. The neighbors homes are lined against the river and inland of these homes are small farm fields. Most of the homes are occupied by neighbors so we never once got that "holiday complex" feeling. The neighbors we met were very welcoming, friendly and helpful. There is an abundance of activities available from fishing to kayaking to cycling. The owner was very accessible and helpful when the occasional query came up. He also went out of his way to ensure our stay was comfortable and memorable.

What a re-TREAT!!

  • 5 of 5

I can't say enough about our trip to THE RIVERBEND RETREAT! If you're wondering if it's clean or spacious, well just stop wondering! It's very well kept and has plenty of room for a large family or group of friends. If you're wondering if the fish will be biting, stop that too! The PERFECT spot is just across the river in the bend and water is spectacular! If you're wondering if you'll be able to relax and reboot, just book already!! This place is everything I hoped it would be and more! If you're lucky enough to be there when the owners are in, getting to know them will just be the icing on an already delicious cake! Maybe Chessy will even share her salad dressing recipe with you!

Great location and view

  • 4 of 5

The Riverbend retreat was a great place for a few days of fishing. It was clean and had the essential amenities. It's location was great and had a great view of the river. I would recommend this for anyone wanting to get away and fish the White River.

Very nice White River cabin.

  • 5 of 5

The Riverbend is a comfortable and efficient cabin on the White River. Me and six other friends spent a fun weekend at the cabin. The cabin sleeps eight and is equipped with all you need to fish or relax. The cabin is a few miles south of Muscles Shoals Lake and is an easy access with good roads.

Our group enjoyed the large deck that over looks the river and the fire pit in the back yard makes for a good setting to talk about the big fish that got away.

Tim goes out of his way to treat you as a guest to his river cabin and is responsive to your questions or request. I would definitely go back again!
