We are happy to announce that we have teamed up with an excellent outfitter on the Buffalo River and you can now arrange float trips on either the White River or the Buffalo River when you book your reservation with us.  Yeah- One stop shopping- just what we like!

Buffalo River Float Service is a family-owned and operated,  authorized concessioner on the Buffalo National River.  They are conveniently located just about 35 minutes from the resort.

Call us to inquire about prices for float trips ranging from 5 hours to 5 days on the river and we can help you plan a memorable trip for your next visit to the Ozarks.

Every winter my husband and I put our heads together and sit down for a brainstorming session where we try to think of ways to bring more guests to the resort.  It's our marketing meeting of the year; borne out of a sense of  "Look what everybody is missing" and "Gosh-- the fish are out there--Where are all the fisherMEN?"
Are you willing to plan the Ultimate Fishing Weekend for 7 of your best buddies?   For only $44.00 a night you can reserve a Deluxe Lodge with all the comforts of a cedar cabin on the White River. Throw in another $35.00  and you can rent a 20' jonboat for the day.
Make an annual event out of it- a trip you'll never want to miss- just make sure to put somebody else in charge of organizing it next year...

Christmas officially ended for our family on January 6th- the Feast of Epiphany- the feast of the Three Kings.  I am slowly getting back to work, and like most of you, putting away the Christmas trimmings for another year and boxing up all the memories to cherish again at some later date.

Our children were all home with us and it was wonderful being together.  I hope all of you were able to spend some of the Christmas season with your loved ones.  Thanks to all of you who sent us Christmas greetings and well wishes for the new year. 

As our son was packing up and getting ready to go back to school for his last college semester, he wistfully repeated a sentiment that we have voiced many times to our children over the years: "The party's over." The children, and sometimes we, want the fun to keep going.  But we know we must go back, just as the Three Wise Men went back.  This year, this time, we want to go back a different way; not complaining that it doesn't last, but rather holding on to the hope that peace and goodwill will not be boxed up and put away until next December comes around again. Isn't that really our best resolution of all?
