Information on the Area

The Arkansas Ozarks and particularly the areas near Mountain View, and Batesville , are not only beautiful but they offer loads of fun and entertainment for people of every age, and interest. Some of the best fishing anywhere is outside the backdoor of Esta's. Mountain View is one of the most interesting and entertaining towns you will find anywhere in the country. There are great music and comedy shows provided by professional entertainers, and wonderful free entertainment provided around the town courthouse by people who come from all parts of the country to participate in country and western style hoedowns several nights a week during the spring, summer, and fall. Please go to to see lots of photos of the area and the wonderful and interesting things you may want to do.

For golfers, if you must, there are 5 nice golf courses within a 30 mile radius of Esta's. Horseback riding, a state park, Ozark Folk Center, Greers Ferry lake, work famous Blanchard Springs Caverns, one of the best mountain bike trails in the country, beautiful scenery, abundant wildlife, rock climbing, canoeing and of course, the clear cool gently flowing White River.

Esta's White River Retreat is conveniently located for most Arkansas and Missouri Church groups between Batesville and Mountain View. It is less than 95 miles from North Little Rock with a 4 lane divided highway up to 15 miles of the property. Downtown Memphis, Tennessee is 135 miles.

Esta's was started for a very special reason. She was our wonderful Mother who passed away several years ago. She left 9 children behind who loved her very much and wanted to do something that would not only honor her memory, but would instill in our children, our grandchildren, and our future generations of grandchildren, the true sense of family and belonging. Our numbers now exceed 90 and we journey to this wonderful place several times a year from as far away as Hawaii, California, Kansas, Oklahoma, Tennessee, Texas, Arkansas and several places in between. When not used by our family, we have rented the property out as a family reunion destination, Church and Corporate Retreat.
