Stetson's on the White
Ranked #1 of 5 Hotels in Flippin
Reviewed 7 April 2013

We have a large group of folks from all over that meet up at Stetson's at least twice per year for the last 12 years. We stayed at other locations previously, but once we found Stetson's, there was no use looking elsewhere. Brenda and her folks go out of their way to make sure we have a great time, every time. The accommodations are superb and continuously updated with new furniture and fixtures, and the boats are clean, safe and well maintained. The majority of our group are Medicare age or close to it, and we do not "rough it". At Stetson's, "roughing it" would be if the satellite TV reception was bad - which hasn't occurred. Many of us make additional trips to Stetson's with a smaller group of family members every year, too. Great fishing, great scenery, and great people - all in one place. Don't waste your time looking elsewhere!

I thought last October's fishing trip was a fantastic, but this trip just blew it out of the water! Didn't spend the extra bucks last time for a guide, but this time we did. Charlie (nickname: Trout Whisper) took care of us way beyond compare. My wife and I caught 25+ trout last trip. My two son in laws and I caught well over 90 trout on our trips down the White. Charlie was one busy young man. My "boys" just kept pulling them in. What a wonderful experience.
Cabin was super, staff was first class and entire facility was well taken care of.
Look forward in our next trip to Stetson's. Thanks Brenda for another great stay.

Excellent place to stay. Right on the river with cliffs just across. Show up with your kids, food, and drinks then kick back and relax by the pool. Charles working the front desk is as personable as they come. There are others places around that are cheaper but you'll get what you pay for, been there - done that. Started with a couple of families a few years ago and now we have 25+ going for a week each year.

All the other reviews tell most of the story, but I need to tell you the "rest if the story". Cabins, river view, boats, ALL excellent. Owner knows her staff because in her absence Charles was left in charge. He made us feel like we were his favorite cousins, visiting for the hundredth time. This being our first Trout fishing trip, I needed serious teaching. Charlie and James taught me all aspects of the art of trout fishing. Great job gentlemen, we had only fished for 6 hrs and caught easily over 22 trout. Good catch for a couple of rookies!
Kept our limit and threw the rest back. What fun! Thanks guys for helping a couple rookie fishermen!
Cabin was everything one would want. Rustic look but clean and well kept.
Nestled in on the White River, between Flippin and Bull Shoals AR. Leaves are turning colors and its too pretty to describe. Drove around the area Friday evening to see 46 deer grazing within 1/4 mile of resort.
We'll be back!

Room Tip: Room #35 has a perfect view of river. I'll ask for it again. Second floor with a great view.

Best birthday gift a man could get is a weekend at Stetsons. As a novice when it comes to fishing, this trip was a hit! Wife and I caught our limit and then some. Have NEVER enjoyed a trip as I did this one.
Facilities are more than one could ever ask for. Staff makes you feel like a first cousin you haven't seen in years. Everything here is First Class. Cabins are so perfect in all aspects, you don't want to leave. Clean beyond all exceptions. Housekeepers go way above and beyond keeping the facilities in great shape and perfect when you walk in the door.

Owner was off this weekend, but when you have a staff like she has, you can take all weekends off. Charles was extremely knowledgeable on his craft. He is a real Trout guide. Although we didn't hire a guide, he told us how and where to fish. He personally made this trip a success.

Planning next trip now. Speaking with another guide, James, other pointers were shared. Basically everyone here at "Stetsons on the White" were absolutely the best we could have asked for.

Room Tip: THE ONLY NEGATIVE: bring your own coffee Mug! All dishes were fine, but the coffee cups are small. B...

Stetson's on the White is a fabulous facility to base out of for your trout fishing trip. Very nice comfortable cabins and rooms available will accommodate groups of any size. Located right on the river, Stetson's can set you up with great guides and gear. Our friends have come here for 20 years and it is consistently great!

I've lost count of the number of times I've been to Stetson's. It is truly one of the Ozarks hidden gems. I have never met a friendlier staff, and the guides go out of their way to make sure you have a good time, whether you're after quantity rainbow trout, or quality trophy trout, they know the river, and how to put you on the fish...safely!! I've been other places, but this is the place I'll choose if I'm making the plans.

Room Tip: All the rooms are great, from the one bedroom, all the way up to the 5 bedroom cabins.
