Wake up to the sounds of tranquility and serenity on the World Famous White River. Step out the back door and enjoy breath taking views of the National Forest and relax in your own private Hot Spring Spa or heated vanishing edge pool. A few short steps down to the river bank will give you the perfect location to catch your trophy trout, bird watch or even take a dip in the river. The White River is the trout capital of the world, famous for Rainbow, Brown, Cutthroat and Brook Trout.

While indoors you will feel right at home with all the modern comforts of this fully equipped sanctuary by the river. Relax in one of three bedrooms that will give you the best nights rest imaginable.

Private Amenities: Whether your ideal vacation is relaxing poolside, trout fishing the famous White River, or waking up to the serene sounds of the great Ozark outdoors...we have it all! Take 4 steps out onto the back deck and dive into the heated vanishing edge swimming pool while enjoying the tranquil sounds and breath-taking views of the White River. Soak in the 6-person Hot Spring hot tub and let the soothing jets take all your worries away.

Would you like daily service, or want to have all of your groceries already at the house when you arrive? Please be sure to inquire about extra services if you are interested.

During winter months the pool does remain heated, but the water splashing into the splash basin below is turned off to help the pool maintain its warmth. The water is most comfortable when temperatures are consistently above 60 degrees.

                                                                      Gorgeous! Fabulous spot on the river!

                                                                      Melissa L.Gray Summit, MO

                                                                      The house is beautiful! The view and dock accessing the water is perfect. Getting in is easy. The beds are comfy. The pool is amazing. The lights in the pool and hot tub make it fun for all ages. The music piped outside and into the bedroom rocked! It is located between both Norfolk and Bull shoals. Buffalo city is a short distance away. The lights on the catch basin were not working, John said he would send electrician to check on them but, none showed. Kind of a disappointment to not get the whole show but it was still very enjoyable. I would suggest some type of towel holders in bathrooms and possibly something in shower to hold soaps and shampoos. The igniter switch is out on gas grill. Bring coffee if your a coffee drinker. There's a maker and filters but no coffee.

I can't think of a single complaint that any of us had while on our stay here, it was absolutely every thing we were hoping for. This property is just beautiful and very well taken care of. The owner was super nice, very responsive to all my texts and helpful with all of our needs. I couldn't have asked for a better experience.The house is very nice and comfortable, it really made for a super relaxing get away! I spent the majority of my time relaxing in the clean pool with its breathtaking views, while my guys enjoyed lots of trout fishing from the dock and river. The hot tub was a nice plus to enjoy when the sun went down! We also enjoyed early morning wildlife watching along the river bank! My only regret is that we couldn't stay longer. We will definitely be making a return trip soon:)
