Our goal is to create an environment at Riverside Retreat that is an easy going, relaxing, peaceful place for you to rest, re-charge and make good memories.
We are a Christian Family that now owns and operates a very small resort on the White River in the beautiful and rugged Ozark Mountains of north central Arkansas. We feel that God has been the reason our place has thrived and we continually thank Him for blessing us.
Chris – I came to Arkansas from Texas in 1976 to go
to college. After graduating with a Business Management degree I worked in
corporate sales for several years, then owned a construction re-modeling outfit, then a used office furniture store. In 2004, when I was 44, we sold everything and built Riverside Retreat. I’m living my dream as a fishing guide! For fun I love to fly fish in saltwater.
Carol – Came from upstate NY to attend college in Arkansas. Graduated with an Interior Design degree and spent a number years working in that field. She spends her days taking reservations, home schooling the kids, and caring for this family in amazing ways. She is a certified animal and bird rehabilitator.
We were married in 1988 and have 3 children. A son at college, and 2 daughters still at home.
We look forward to serving you during your visit!
“As for me and my household, we will serve the Lord.” – Joshua 24:15
