Missouri Rainbow Springs Lodge
The lodge is a short distance upriver from River of Life on the “miracle mile” of river that boasts some of the finest trout fishing in the Missouri Ozarks.
The lodge has been privately owned for nearly half a century, but the family has decided to open it to the public through River of Life.
The lodge is an architectural jewel with touches of Frank Lloyd Wright and the Craftsman style inside and out. River of Life has preserved the artifacts and furniture that make the lodge special. The lodge is 4,500 square feet with four bedrooms and five bathrooms and will house up to 14 guests. The centerpiece is a wood‐and‐stone fireplace that soars to the ceiling through both floors.
The lodge is named for Rainbow Springs, which gushes cold, clear water from the base of a bluff, creating two spring branches that empty into the North Fork. The spring is a stone’s throw away from the lodge, which has a patio and upper deck with views of the water. Visit Rainbow Springs Lodge and let the sound of rushing water lull you to sleep each night.
Enjoy some of the finest fly fishing at the famous Rainbow Springs. Close by is the “miracle mile” of Missouri rainbow trout fishing, the finest in the Missouri Ozarks. If you enjoy hiking, we offer some of the finest Missouri hiking on our 350 acres of prime wilderness. Or visit the Mark Twain National Forest with many wilderness trails. Bird watching, star gazing, and hunting are just a few of our attractions within walking distance of your cabin. Float the North Fork River for the day with several float trip options.
You’ll find Missouri’s Historic Grist Mills fascinating, which are just a short drive away. Take an hour’s drive and visit the Laura Ingalls Wilder Home and Museum. Are you interested in antiques? There are several great antique stores about 30 miles from your lodging in West Plains, Missouri.
