The Owners

John and Marie Gorgas have lived in Northwest Arkansas for 30 years. Together, they own and manage the Rocky Branch Resorts.


John and Marie are addicted to remodeling real estate. First they remodeled the lodge at the Rocky Branch Resort, creating 17 comfortable rooms. Then they began purchasing houses and cabins on Beaver Lake and remodeling their interiors into spacious guest homes. They also built a few new houses. Marie loves decorating and John loves the construction work. 

John and Marie came to Arkansas on a fishing trip, and immediately fell in love with the area. "The lake is breathtaking," says John, "And the forest that surrounds it is gorgeous too." 

In their 30+ years in Arkansas, Marie and John have built a thriving resort in one of the few remaining natural beautiful areas left in the country.
