This was our second trip in two years and cannot think of a place we would rather stay for a wonderful trip. The folks are friendly and helpful. The grounds are gorgeous and the cabins are roomy, clean and homey. They welcome pets and give them a welcome treat at check in. WE go for the fishing, but enjoy the...

We followed the signs to Gaston's. Hubby fished happily and wife enjoyed the grounds. Had dinner and breakfast in the restaurant. Great candlelight dinner and a wonderful breakfast buffet. The room was cozy and clean. The room overlooked the river. First place we ever stayed where guests can fly in.

The cabins are clean and everyone of them have a beautiful view of the White River just below the Bull Shoals dam. Kitchens are fully equipped. Staff is professional and most helpful. The restaurant is very good after replacing chefs. Grass strip accommodates small aircraft on site. Guides are committed to getting you in the areas where you can catch...

Thank you so much for the review! We are glad that your group had a wonderful stay with us, and will continue to frequent our resort. Many people think that our resort is catered to men, but that is not the case at all! We cater to all of our guests, so that everybody has a memorable experience.

We flew in for Sunday brunch and what a beautiful area. I can't wait to come back and stay in a cabin and trout fish! The restaurant was charming with all the vintage decor and the home cooked brunch was amazing! Loved the onsite store with everything for fishing and gift shop! Look forward to coming back soon!

I have been wanting to land a big Brown Trout for sometime and decided to go to the best. The water was very low and the Browns just weren't biting 😟. There is not much you can do about water level that is controlled by the Corp, we caught a few rainbows and learned a couple new techniques. Cabins were...

We recently were on vacation in Lakeview, Arkansas. We had not planned our stay , but so relieved we found your resort. We enjoyed our stay. The resort dining for Breakfast, and Super were fantastic. Coffee was the best I have had. We will visit again.

Staff is professional and newly remodeled cabins are very nice. The setting is picture perfect with peacocks, deer, and wild turkeys. Will take the wife next time. Unique restaurant takes you back in time as you admire old tackle, bicycles, and outboard motors.

We have visited Gaston's several times over the past year. It is a beautiful setting for lunch, dinner or brunch. You are seated in a dining room with windows overlooking the White River. The staff is very attentive and pleasant. The food is very good. We often take our out of town guests to Gaston's for a real dining experience.

I have been flying into Gaston's for 33 years, this is the best hidden gem/get-a-way in Arkansas, to relax, fish and just get away from it all. I think hiring the new chef (3/3016), Rick, was an excellent choice, the food is always outstanding and cooked to perfection! I'm glad to see the new renovations taking place to the cottages...

Wonderful, scenic trip to Lakeview! Everyone at Gaston's was extremely friendly and helpful. The food and amenities were great! The only negative was the age of the cabins - great shape, clean and comfortable, but are getting up there in years.
