Cotter House Rental Photos and Description

The Trout House Cabin is a privately owned home located in a quite area of the Renowned White River. A relaxing atmosphere where you can catch a trophy trout, take a leisurely walk or ride a bicycle. Relax with the comfortable furnishings in a glass living room with a fantastic view of the White River. Walk out onto a large deck that surrounds the front of the house to watch a trout jump or a bald eagle fly by. The White River is the Trout Capital of the World and is famous for Rainbow, Brown, Cutthroat and Brook Trout. We are within walking distance of Wildcat Shoals one of the best fly fishing areas on the White River.

This cabin has a large front yard on the river side and large back yard with picnic tables, grills, fire pit for campfire, basketball goal and horseshoes and plenty of parking if you bring your boat. A great place for kids to play when not fishing or swimming.

About Kathy Sisco

We purchased this property for our own personal use and after acquiring another riverfront property decided to turn this one into a nightly rental.

Kathy Sisco purchased this house in 2000

Why Kathy Sisco chose Arkansas

We loved to spend time on the White River and had always camped there with our children. All of our grandchildren have been trout fishing since they were big enough to hold a rod.

What makes this house unique

Quite and peaceful, nothing like watching the fog roll in at night, the blue heron flying and catching a fish or the Bald Eagle flying by. It is the best place in the world to unwind from our daily busy lives.

Perfect little getaway!

  • 5 of 5

We rented this cabin looking for a way to get away from the stresses of life and enjoy family. This cabin was perfect. It's very comfy and cozy. The scenery is beautiful. The owner was quick to respond to questions and was very accommodating. We could tell that this home means a lot to her family and that she wants her renters to enjoy the place just as much as her family does. My dad and husband caught several brown and rainbow trout. My mom and I enjoyed playing in the large yard and in the river with my 2 year old son. I highly recommend this cabin to anyone looking for a family friendly getaway. We'll definitely be back!

Even Better Than Expected

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I were very eager to visit the Trout House after reading the previous reviews. New to the sport of fly fishing, we were anxious to stay on the famous White River.

The Trout House is situated in a perfect location. As shown in pictures, you can walk out in front of the property and wade into the river, as long as water levels aren't too high. If you bring a boat, there is a boat landing next to the property, and plenty of room in the driveway of the cabin to park your vehicle and trailer.

The Trout House was immaculate and spacious. The kitchen was well equipped with everything we needed. We enjoyed drinking our morning coffee and spending every evening on the spacious deck, enjoying the beauty of the river.

Kathy was a pleasure to deal with all throughout the process! We were so happy that we could meet her and Roy and truly appreciated their hospitality.

As far as this fishing, as I mentioned, we are "newbie" fly fishermen, unfamiliar with the river. We hired a local guide and caught many rainbow and a very nice brown!

We are already planning next year's trip!

Excellent - Location, Top Notch Inside and & Out!

  • 5 of 5

We arrived on a Thursday afternoon, the guys started fishing - immediately - and even with the Corp running generators this location was level enough to fish!

Everything we needed - including W/D - inside, the all glass living room is a plus! We spent most of our time outside on the deck tho.

The Owner was very helpful and very friendly - will definitely be coming back!

Just wanted to let you know that despite the cold weather from our originally planned trip in the summer, we thoroughly enjoyed staying at your house on the White River. We loved our fishing trip at Cotter Dock with our guide Doug and caught our limit on Rainbow Trout. I even caught one off the banks of the river at your house. The house had all the comforts of home. The kitchen was thoroughly stocked and beds were comfy. The view is breathtaking and we loved our stay there. Thanks for making it feel like "home".

My family and I had a wondeful time staying here! Everything was super clean and had every amenity we needed! We didn't fish during this trip but we did rent a pontoon and spent an afternoon on Bull Shoals Lake!! The river was absolutely beautiful. My family enjoyed coffee every morning on the deck. We spent a lot of time out there in the evenings too!! We spent a couple of days going to flea markets and antique stores in the area. We'll definitely do this again! Thanks again!
