    White River Lodge-Bill & Becky Babler, Innkeepers

    Ever since Bill can remember he has dreamed of having a log lodge. He thought it might be a hunting lodge up in the mountains until he started a fishing guide service, White River Outfitters, in southern Missouri. He searched high and low for that perfect piece of property to make a dream come true. His search ended a couple of years ago with the purchase of forty acres down Happy Hollow Road. Then with much research, professional help, fine tuning, and just hard work, White River Lodge became reality. Whether fishing on area lakes or lounging at the lodge, Bill's goal is to help you enjoy yourself!

    Ever since Becky was a little girl growing up with three brothers and three sisters on a Missouri farm, she's liked water, food, and fun. She often played school with her younger siblings and earned a teaching certificate when graduating from College of the Ozarks near Branson. This is where she met that fun guy, Bill, a recreation major. After teaching for 25 years the time was right to start a new venture, White River Lodge Bed and Breakfast. She looks forward to making sure you're well fed and comfortable!
