“If it's a view you want, get the ground floor, and book early”
Reviewed 29 May 2012

My husband and I have stayed here once and passed on a 2nd stay. The first visit, we got a room on the ground floor with a screened porch overlooking the White River. The view was amazing, an the room, though dated and rustic, was clean enough to pass. Since we don't fish, the view was what we paid for since there are few amenities for the price other than those mentioned. We wanted to stay again and were told the only rooms available were upstairs (my husband is disabled and has a hard time climbing stairs and standing). I was promised an even better view from the 2nd floor than from the 1st. What I WASN'T told is that there is NO view from the 2nd floor unless you can stand at the rail and look over. The balcony railing is solid (I assume for safety), so when seated you cannot see the river at all. The balcony itself is a single, long, shared balcony, also, so sitting outside in the morning with a hot cup of coffee wearing my PJs as I had planned was out of the question. Since we had planned only to read, veg, and watch the river and would not be able to do that, we passed on the room the 2nd time. A limited number of rooms with a view demand an early booking (if you can tolerate old and rustic).

This quaint resort on the White river was opened in the 1960's and last updated in maybe the 1970's. It is a great place to stay for a trip to the Mountain View, Arkansas area, if you are looking for a rustic fishing resort. Although dated, The room was clean, had comfortable beds, a screened porch, and a small kitchen. The resort is right on the river and offers guided fishing trips or boat rentals. Fishermen get up early and go to bed early so the place was quiet after dark. The adjoining restaurant, Jo Jo's, serves fried catfish dinners??? This is a wonderful TROUT fishing area. Great place to stay, skip Jo Jo's.

Room Tip: Ask for a room with a "screened" porch overlooking the river, summertime brings bugs in ar...
