I just returned home from a 3-day trip to the White River Inn in Cotter, AR. I’m not sure whether to start with the White River Inn or the fishing, so I’ll just start with the Inn. Moose and Tina Watson built their Inn on THE most scenic location high above the White River. The sunrises and sunsets are spectacular....

Just stayed at the White River Inn for a few days last week. Went with our family (including 3 teenage boys) and my in-laws. Everyone loved it. Tina and Moose are awesome hosts. They planned all the fishing trips for us - we all caught lots of trout. They take care of all of the meals, so we were able...

For the third time in the last four years my two college age sons and I returned (at their request), to a very magical place perched on a high bluff providing a breathtaking panoramic view of the White River. Capturing the opportunity to spend time together with members of the "Millennial Generation" without the distraction of cell phones in their...

My wife and I had the pleasure of staying at the White River Inn this past Memorial Day. We enjoyed the fishing and food so much that we returned for Labor Day and brought the entire extended family. The food, accommodations and river views are unmatched. Moose and Tina are the ultimate hosts.
