  • This amazing location and host continue to exceed our expectations...Thank You!


    Twice a year for the last four years, we have had the pleasure to visit and enjoy Wildcat Cottage. Andrea is the most thoughtful and genuine host, and she thinks of every small detail to make our trips memorable from her welcome note and basket, binoculars, replenished bird feeders, stocked wood piles and extra essentials in case we forget anything. It is very comforting and stress-free to know that the kitchen and bathrooms are fully stocked, so you really only need to bring food and clothes.

    Beyond the comfort of the cottage, I can't say enough about the location! From the beautiful, large deck with plenty of seating, shade and nice gas grills, you can walk down the short pathway and start fishing in minutes. You can walk along the easy to access shoreline, use your waders, or can walk or drive to the boat ramp down the street. You know you are in a great fishing location when the fishing guides regularly stop near your rental.

    I encourage others to take advantage of this comfortable, well-positioned cottage because you will certainly observe and enjoy nature while your worries float down the river. The best part of all is that you will meet a new friend, Andrea, as she easily impresses you with her hospitality and fun spirit.

    This was our second stay and yet again Wildcat Cottage didn't disappoint! Even though it rained and stormed for most of our stay, we were still able to hit the river for some trout fishing in between storms. We always enjoy the scenery, wildlife, and walking up and down the banks of the river. The host Andrea is absolutely amazing! She always greets us with open arms and definitely makes us feel at home. We couldn't ask for a better host. She may not know it yet, but we've adopted her as part of the family. We will definitely be back for hopefully many more stays.

  • Nice cottage right on the water


    Great place on the White River. Best trout fishing around right out your back door. Andrea is a great host who has thought of everything you could possibly need. This was our fourth stay at Wildcat cottage and we can’t wait to come back again.

  • Amazing place on the White River


    This was our fourth time staying at Wildcat cottage, we love it here. The little cottage is right on the water with the best trout fishing around right out your door. Even if you don’t fish, just sitting in the deck watching the boats and the Eagles is so peaceful. The host has thought of everything you could possibly need. Andrea is wonderful and has done a wonderful job making this vacation spot your home away from home. We can’t wait to come back.

  • Perfect stay for fishing on the White.


    Two fishing buddies who make a yearly trip to fish a few days on the White. These few days off are always a big deal for us. We look forward to it every year. This cabin is perfect. After a day on the river, you can come back and fish some more.

    The host is very kind and friendly. Highly recommend.
