About Donna Cordonnier

My husband and I lived in St. Louis and he had been coming down to the White River to trout fish for over 50 years. We were staying at a lodge here in 2009 when we spotted a for sale sign on a very new house that happened to be on the banks of his all time favorite spot on Wildcat Shoals. We took one look and decided to buy it. It has been heaven to live here. We both love the outdoors and I also love hiking, kayaking ,walking, and golf. If you want to do any of these other activities while you are here just ask me and I will help .

Donna Cordonnier purchased this guest house in 2009

Why Donna Cordonnier chose Cotter

We chose this house primarily because, in our opinion, it sits on the banks of the best trout fishing shoals in all of the White River. What made it irresistible was that there are no properties across the river from us and never will be. It is a duplex with a complete separate living quarters on lower level. There is a beautiful limestone bluff where eagles and herons fly all day long. It is quite, private and beautiful . House was built with great soundproofing and 4 feet of insulated space between levels.

What makes this guest house unique

The unique benefit is that this is a private residence. there are two rentals here with 100 frontage feet of White river. It will be like this is your own home. This lower level is it's own apartment with separate entrance. It has beautiful views of the river and a large deck overlooking the water. There is plenty of parking space for renters cars and boats/trailers. This opened up the opportunity to rent. Another benefit is that we have the Wildcat access just 1 mile up the road. We are on a private dead end street so only those who live here are driving by. No public access for 1 mile in either direction.

Beautiful river view

  • 5 of 5

We have fished the white river for 25 years and have stayed in various vacation rentals along the river, but this one was by far the most beautiful view. The lower level rental was very clean and tastefully decorated with all of the coviences of home. Easy river access for wadding when the river is down and if the river is up there is a public boat launch just down the road. It’s very apparent that the owner takes pride in keeping her rental clean and appealing. It even has its own washer and dryer, which is a big plus for our extended trips. We already have another trip booked in 6 weeks. Love this place.

Relaxing getaway

  • 5 of 5

The Wheatstone guest home is in a scarcely populated area in Cotter on the banks of the White River. It is an extremely peaceful and relaxing location with the only sounds being birds, the river and the occasional boat on the river. It is a beautiful location. There are other houses along the same stretch of river and all are very nice. It is a great location. The guest house is very clean and well cared for. It was the perfect place to get away and relax. And, it's just a short drive to Mountain Home. My dad and I enjoyed a great vacation there and enjoyed fishing and just watching the river amble by. I highly recommend the Wheatstone house.

Great location

  • 5 of 5

We had a great time staying in the lower level of the house. We had four adult men, the amenities are exactly what you need for a weekend of fishing and relaxing. The easy access to the water is great for everyone. We had two people that are not big into fishing, but they still had a great time casting from the shore. There is also a bald eagle's nest right across the river which was entertaining the entire weekend.

Highly recommend staying here!
