  • Family Time

    "We rented the home for a few days and had some family members in the area come over one day for a family get together. We were all impressed with the house as it was roomy, very well laid out, clean and modern. The location was just remote enough that there was no traffic noise, but it was still a very short drive to groceries, gas, etc. Enjoyed driving to the close-by state park, walking some trails, touring the visitor center at the dam, etc. Beds were comfortable and a separate full bath off of each bedroom was a big plus. The owner that I dealt with was very accomodating and pleasant to talk with and he offered all kinds of good advice to make the trip more enjoyable. There is an app for your cell that can be downloaded that provides great information, links an locations for weather, area attractions, restaurants and so forth while in the area. AT&T cell coverage seems to work well everywhere we went. (Using the app to write this review on the last night here using the free WiFi in the house.) Definitely hope to come back here sometime soon. Forgot to mention.... the views of the river and surrounding scenery were unbeatable."

  • A Gem in the Heart of the Ozarks

    "Being a traveler and used to the amenities of big hotels in major cities, beautiful resorts and vacation homes, I was very surprised to find a gem - Trimble Creek Lodge - in the heart of the Ozarks. From the moment, my brother and I stepped out of the car to our final day at this resort, we were impressed by the level of personalized service by the proprietors, Lorilee and Mike. They were not only warm, hospitable and friendly hosts, but very informative and highly knowledgeable about the area. They lent a special touch to everything – from the welcome sign that greeted us as we entered the lodge, to the bouquet of fresh flowers delivered to the rooms daily. The cabins were very CLEAN, cozy and charming; the décor added to the feeling of a real home. Upon arrival, and after being led to our quarters, my first impulse was to lay in bed and sleep because I was tired from driving. But the scenery beckoned. The large windows in the lodge offered a view of Bull Shoals Lake that was irresistible and breathtaking. One could read, play a game of pool or backgammon or simply sit, relax and enjoy nature. The gravel paths that meandered around the property offered many surprises – a vegetable garden, a tree house, a homey barn, a small grove of chestnut trees, beautiful rocks from the “Natural State” and breathtaking views of the lake and its creeks. We sampled Lorilee’s delicious home-made bread, which was freshly baked, but disappointingly, we did not have the time to take the lesson in bread making due to the lack of time. Trimble Creek offered a lot of privacy and a welcome relief from the stresses of city living. I highly recommend this beautiful resort and will definitely return and hope to stay longer!"

  • Family weekend retreat

    "What a great place! The house had everything we needed and more. We were looking for a weekend getaway, quiet but not too far away for our daughters to travel in. We enjoyed the quiet location & spent a lot of time on the deck visiting. Perfect weather & with a short walk to the boat dock, we were fishing in minutes. Just an overall great stay! The owners & caretakers were easy to work with & made sure we enjoyed our stay. We will definitely go back!"

  • My daughters and I stayed at the Riverside Vacation Home on the White River.

    "This is our second time staying at one of the Riverside Vacation Homes. It is such a relaxing spot. I love to get up early in the morning and sit on the porch and drink coffee and read, listening to the birds and wildlife waking up. It refreshes my soul to sit and watch the river flow by. There is excellent fishing just off the bank or choose to rent a guide. We did this both times and it was so much fun. There are many attractions for the nature lover, walking, fishing, hiking. Or my favorite just relaxing. The homes are very clean and have such a personal touch in furnishing's it is like visiting friends. Spaciousness for many family members as we had join us throughout the week. I would recommend River Vacation Homes to any family or even individual that just enjoys a beautiful view, peace and quite other than nature. The fog coming up the river each day is quite a delight. We could of stayed for weeks if home hadn't been calling us back. We will definitely come back again. The owners were most gracious and attentive to our needs. thanks so much."
