Our family stayed in Cabin #2 for 2 days and it was not nearly enough time. The resort is so pretty and the staff so friendly. We booked 2 fishing charters because we have 5 people in our family and we had a blast! We all caught lots of trout and we cooked them for dinner in our cabin. Our kids (all teens) throughly enjoyed themselves, fishing, making smores and catching fireflies. It is a wonderful place! The homemade cinnamon rolls were amazing! Can't wait to come back!

Once again we were treated like family. Neat facilities, sweet staff and fishing guides that rank with the top in our travels. The grounds are kept so beautiful. We spent a birthday her, and an anniversary. We will be back soon!

The servant attitude is what impresses us the most. I honestly believe that this is the best place I've ever been that really cares about their guests. I'm telling you that if you need a lesson on customer service, just hang around the Rainbow Drive Resort for a day.

We stayed in the pent house above the office. Very spacious, lovely, clean accommodations!! We noticed a little noise from below during office hours, but it was no bother to us. Our kids stayed in a camper cabin and they were nice too and closer to the water. Other cabins are closer to the river with better views but this place is plush! We already put in for a larger place and invited more family for next fall. Staff was the best; very friendly and helpful. Fishing was great and trout was tasty! We will return...

Cannot tell you how much I love this place. The staff, the guides, the country side, the RIVER...this is truly as close to paradise as I've ever come. After so many visits it just gets harder to leave and return to the city. If you love peaceful serene surrounding and catching trout like crazy you will LOVE Rainbow Drive Resort. Can't say enough good things about them!

This was my second stay and review. Our family just spent 5 days at Rainbow Drive Resort. All 11 of us had a blast. We flew our single engine plane into the 2800 foot paved private strip (61AR) and taxied up to the resort. This is an extremely well run fishing resort. We were greeted at our plane and our luggage was taken to our accommodations.

We had the Penthouse (newly updated) and the Riverhouse. We then moved into the Large Lodge which sleeps up to 20. The lodging was spotless and very comfortable.

The marina is nice and run by Gordon. Fishing advise is offered and very helpful. We took home around 170 trout caught during our stay. Great eating.

Chris manages the resort for Heather (the owner) and they both went out of their way to make sure we were happy and enjoying our stay.

You will love this small resort.

I love this property. This was my second visit here. The property is well kept and the cottages are nice and clean. The view of the White River is so pretty. Each cottage has a wonderful screened in porch that looks over the property and river. The cottage is well stocked with everthing you need except food. We took an all day trout trip with Brad and had an excellent time. We caught plenty of fish and he will take care of you. This is in a rual area, but we found 2 great places to eat dinner. One was in Mountain Home at Freds Fish House and the other was in Bull Shoals at Club 178. Its not a club, its a nice restuarant. The owner of this property are very nice and helpful. If your looking for a place to relax and enjoy some good trout fishing, you will not be disappointed here.

Room Tip: #4 Cottage has a jacuzzi
