About Lake Whitney Guru

We all talk a lot about moments. We have “senior moments,” “blonde moments,” and “Mommy needs a moment moments.” There are “the doctor will be with you in a moment moments” and “can you hold a moment moments.” But what we really live for is the moment when the car is packed, the kids are buckled in, and you have an incredible urge to roll the windows down and shout, “Road Trip” as the wind rushes through your hair. Or how about the moment when your daughter giggles uncontrollably at the sight of Dad doing back flips off the front of your rented pontoon boat? Then there’s the moment when you realize that you are watching the sun rise slowly over the lake in the company of a herd of deer. There’s the moment when you wonder why you waited so long to get away to Lake Whitney, followed shortly by the moment when you ask, “When can we do this again?” If you came to this site looking for that kind of moment you are in the correct place.

Lake is dedicated to being your source of Lake Whitney information.

This site is hosted within the pages of Arrowhead Resort, but don’t think that Lake Whitney.Guru is all about selling you on the idea of staying only at Arrowhead.

Our goal here is to help you gather Lake Whitney information so that you can choose wisely where you want to stay and the activities you want to include in your visit. We have 16+ years of experience living, boating, and conducting business right here on the shores of Lake Whitney. We feel that qualifies us as experts on the subject. You can read more about our credentials in the side bar. We hope that you will find the posts here entertaining, educational, and above all, helpful.
