The cabin was clean and fully furnished with everything we needed. The porch with the Hot tub was a great way to end the day. We stayed at the Creekside Cabin. Check in was easy. The hosts were accommodating without being intrusive. Everything in the cabin function as it should. We plan to return in the next year or two.

This was the 4th time that we have stayed at Riverside Retreat, and each time it gets even better. The reason we love to stay here is for the fishing on the White and North Fork Rivers. If an excellent guide is what you're looking for, Chris is your guy. With his knowledge of the rivers, you cannot ask for...

On a whim, my girlfriend and I decided to head to the White this weekend. I'm a little more difficult guy to please when it comes to a place to stay on the river. I'm there to fish, and I want some solitude. That's it. There's a certain type of crowd that Gastons, Stetsons, Sportsmans, etc., are suited for. That...

We are about to return to see Chris and family for the 7th year. I have traveled the world and would say what is unique about Riverside Retreat is it is exactly how I would want my fishing lodge to be if I owned it myself. Every year is like seeing an old friend...you pick up exactly where you left...

Four friends and myself went to Northfork for a fishing trip. The trip exceeded our expectations. The house we stayed in was very nice and had everything we needed and more. Being right their on the water was so relaxing and you couldn't have asked for prettier scenery. None of us had ever gone trout fishing before, so we hired...

I highly recommend the Riverside Retreat. Myself and four buddies were looking for somewhere to get away and do a little fishing. We had limited knowledge about Trout fishing, so we hired Chris to show us the ropes. The area truly offers some of the best fishing in the entire country and Chris' knowledge of the river is astounding. He's...

Riverside Retreat is a blessing! My husband and I got caught in the rat race of cell phones, business meetings and other life stresses. It was 6 1/2 years since our honeymoon and we were needing a quiet, relaxing place; which lead us to Chris and Carol's Creekside Cabin!! I will admit I am very picky when it comes to...

Our White River cabins, with hot tubs and porch fireplaces , and the White River Lodge for family reunions, corporate workshops or church retreats create a White River resort that is very different from other resorts. What makes our place different? ■A much higher level of privacy than you’ll find at other resorts. You’ll find lots of space between our accommodations, only 4 structures spread out over 8 acres. ■A portion of the White River than is not lined with houses, docks and other resorts. A place to enjoy the river, without the crowds. ■A "money back" guarantee that nothing within this website is misrepresented. ■Having 2 canoes & 2 kayaks available FREE for one day for each visit. You have found your place if you want: ■private, cozy cabins with hot tubs and porch fireplaces, ■a comfortable lodge for up to 20 people, ■excellent restaurants just minutes away, and we’ll make your reservations for you, ■free wifi internet access, ■a truly great trout fishery in both the White River and the North Fork River, ■banks, grocery stores, and other conveniences within 5 - 15 minutes, ■having a Guide/Owner provide fishing tips, locations or fly casting lessons at no charge, ■knowing your guide, the owner, loves his job and sincerely cares about your fishing adventure.
