My recent stay at His Place Resort with my 10 year old grandson for some trout (drift) fishing was the occasion to look back on the wonderful times we and our family have enjoyed there over these past 7 years. Zack caught his first trout there 3 years ago, trying to match his brother's prowess as my son and 2 grandsons and I floated one of the Resort's 20' boats through Hurst's Hole. That memory triggered another for Zack.... a Bald Eagle's nest, complete with mother chicks, that he spotted just after that catch. It seemed to him and I that each trip for us to this marvelous spot on the White from our home in eastern Nebraska has had a memorable event we can go back to and enjoy..... I know that his father and brother always bring up our stays at His Place to there friends. His Uncle always brings up that 24" Brown to his friends in Las Vegas.
The Resort has always been our type of place: a quiet setting, right on the River, very clean units, well maintained and up to date rental boats and motors at the dock, Tackle shop, excellent website with live river webcam (!). The service is genuinely great, from fishing and River flow information from Steve, to the warm and friendly words from Julie....and when's the last time you had home baked chocolate cookies waiting for you as you opened you cottage door? The rates are astoundingly modest...excellent value here. Ten minutes from restaurants and shops.
Seven years, at least as many trips..... as you can tell, our family's totally into the His Place experience!
