Location Details

You couldn't ask for a more beautiful and tranquil location as the setting for your holiday in Cotter, Arkansas. 'Wildcat Cottage' sits on Wildcat Shoals on the White River in northern Arkansas. You'll love the view of the bluff across the river and seeing bald eagles fly through the property frequently.

The fly fishing in this part of the river is prolific, so come prepared! If you're not an expert, just hire a fishing guide to show you the ropes! Throw the trout you caught onto the grill for dinner to celebrate a successful day.

You can also bring a fishing boat to reel in your catch of the day instead. Park the boat in the driveway when you're not using it! If you don't own a boat, never fear - you'll be surrounded by countless boat, canoe, and kayak rental services. The boat launch area is just 2 minutes from the property.

The Bull Shoals Lake area is about a 30-minute drive away, where you can pursue even more fun water activities. If you want to spend a day out of the sun, drive a little over 10 miles to the city of Mountain Home offering delicious restaurants, movie theaters, shops, and antique stores.

  • Our stay wasn’t long enough!


    This was our first visit to the Wildcat Lodge, but it certainly won’t be our last! After a combined total of 38 years of fishing in Cotter, we have finally found THE PLACE to stay! Excellent accommodations, amazing views, and one of the greatest hosts you could ever dream of having make the Wildcat Lodge a “no brainer” place to stay! Andrea is a awesome host and has the house stocked to the gills with anything and everything you could ever imagine in the event you might have forgotten something on your trip. Now that the Wildcat is on our radar, we plan to make a trip out to stay every year!

  • Outstanding!


    This is THE most well outfitted rental I've stayed in! It was also the cleanest! Andrea provided everything you could need--from kitchen and cooking appliances and utensils (5 baking sheets!) to spices, flashlights, headlamps, lots of towels, phone chargers and USB outlets wherever you may be. She provided a nice basket of snacks. A wonderful stay!

  • Exceptional!


    This rental was THE best outfitted rental I have ever stayed in. Besides being immaculately clean, it was incredibly well provided. Everything in the way of kitchen utensils, cookware (6 cookie/baking trays!) and appliances to spices, condiments, USB outlets and chargers in every room, 100's of dvds, and a basket of snacks, it had everything we could use and more. The beautiful deck with grill overlooking the river was a bonus.

    The only problem we had with our stay, was we could not give a 6 Star rating!
