Having grown up in Mtn. Home, Gaston’s is somewhere we dined at frequently (restaurant is fantastic!) but it wasn’t until becoming an adult and moving away that I’ve had the opportunity to stay at the resort as an overnight guest. From our first stay several years ago it quickly became our favorite place to go when visiting family! We make multiple weekend trips to Gaston’s every year and always enjoy our time there. As our family has grown from 2 to 6 there’s accommodations to fit every need! The rooms are always clean with wonderful river views. The restaurant is a short walk and opens early for breakfast which is great for fisherman and parents of toddlers!

& see.There's not a dull moment. The trees will be soon changing to there fall colors-as fall is appoaching.
