THE BIG HOUSE (Sleeps 4-10) 

Cross the covered bridge, then kick back and relax at The Big House. This is not your typical bare bones river accommodation. Fine cotton linens, a fully equipped kitchen, central heat and air and satellite television with over 200 channels are just a few of the highlights. Master suite is equipped with a king size bed, private bath and flat screen television.  Two more bedrooms are outfitted with double beds, dressers and plenty of closet space.

Living room has a 46 inch big screen television and big comfy furniture. Sofa folds out into another double bed! Main bath has a tub/shower combo. Washer and dryer are provided for your use. Master bath has a beautiful ceramic tile shower. 

Enjoy a cold beverage on the covered deck, gather around the fire pit or pitch a game of horseshoes.    The living is easy at Riverbend Floats!

Base rent is for 4 people but this 1400 sq. ft. home easily houses up to eight people.



The Tucker Suite is super nice!  You'll have a large room with queen bed and fine linens, plus a set of bunk beds for the kiddos or friends.  You'll also enjoy 200 channel high definition satellite television, coffee station, microwave and your own patio with grill, picnic table & chiminea.  Again, this is not your typical river accommodation.  The Tucker Suite is Bona-Fide!


RIVERBEND INN (Sleeps 2-4) See photo at top of page

All units of the fabulous, brand new Riverbend Inn are equipped with two queen beds, flat screen high definition television, coffee maker and microwave.  You will not find a nicer accommodation in the Illinois River corridor!  Guests will have access to picnic tables and charcoal grills.  Riverbend Inn guests are required to float with Riverbend Floats from May through September.  Room rates are $99.00 Sunday through Thursday and $119.00 Friday and Saturday for 1-2 guests.  Add $10 each for up to two additional guests.  Strict limit of four guests per room. Riverbend Inn has a minimum two night stay.   



Located on Scenic Hwy 10, smack dab in the middle of the Illinois River recreation area and less than one mile either direction to public access at No Head Hollow or Echota Landing. 

Historic Tahlequah is less than a five minute drive. Visit the Cherokee Nation, NSU or enjoy the North End Entertainment District. The North End has numerous choices for dining and drinking along and near Tahlequah’s Town Branch Creek.


There is no internet service at Riverbend Floats lodging.  There is an ATT tower within 1/4 mile and ATT customers can expect very strong 4g data/voice coverage.  Other carriers may or may not have a viable signal due to the mountainous terrain.  

Quiet hours are from 10pm until 7am.
