Women, Men, Teens and Couple Church Retreat Destination

Esta's White River Retreat is a non-denominational privately owned facility in the Arkansas Ozark's on the beautiful White River, which is world renowned for its trout fishing and scenic beauty. We are bordered by several hundred acres of private forest land. Esta's is a wonderful place to restore your mind, body and spiritual yearnings. We have two beautiful private compounds that can be used separately or combined together if your group size dictates. It is a perfect place for a men's, women's or teen outing and adds a special romantic touch when used as a couples retreat. While your function will undoubtedly be focused around spiritual needs, the surrounding area and beautiful accommodations can add even more fun and excitement to your outing.

While most groups trying to keep their costs down will prefer to do their own cooking, many prefer to have someone preparing some of the meal functions, if that is the case, Chef John and Wendy can do a great job as an option. We have a local boat rental company that rents canoes, fishing boats and a large pontoon for river and fishing outing, if time is allowed.

During the peaceful winter season you will experience an awakening of the senses God gave us to enjoy the bounties of nature. It is not unusual to see bald eagles, otter, mink, beaver, armadillo, turkey, deer and other nature's creatures from the warmth and comfort of the Ohana (Family) house or other houses on the compound. There are great walking trails that border Wolf Creek Bayou which enters White River at our property boundary. A short 20 mile drive will take you to Mountain View, Arkansas where great family entertainment and music is an option. We hope your retreat experience here will put you closer to your church, family and most importantly God.
