We love this place so much that we decided to add our 1st review on TA. Everything was perfect. Beautiful, warm and cozy private cottage in the woods. We booked 6 nights stay in Chinook Cabin initially but we loved this place so much that we ended up extending another 2 nights here. A well maintained & nicely decorated cabin...

Sated four nights in the Chinook cabin. Great accommodation with all amenities and overlooking Chena river. Bruce & Debbie are great hosts, proud and enthusiastic Alaskans with a wealth of knowledge of local area. First night saw magnificent display of Northern Lights. Peaceful, scenic location. Could not recommend more highly.

We had a very warm welcome here! Debi showed us the cabin. It is a lovely cabin with a lovely view over the Chena river. The cabin is full equipment! Debi made a banana blueberry nut bread for us what was very tasty! When you go to Fairbanks, stay here!

There were five adults who spent three nights at the Riverbend Cabins and we LOVED it. We were warmly welcomed by the owners who greeted us with homemade fresh cookies and fresh tomatoes from their garden. The cabin was cute as a button, decorated with such detail and thoughtfulness, fully equipped with everything we needed. The owners loaned us their...

This was our second time spending a week at Riverbend with the best hosts ever – Debi, Bruce and their black lab, Molly. Last March we stayed in the Sourdough Cabin, which is perfect for a couple, and this March we stayed in the Chinook Cabin as we brought along our niece. The Chinook is bigger than the Sourdough and...

It should first be noted that this is our first TA review...notable because we are frequent international travellers and have utilized all levels and styles of accommodation...we couldn't let this opportunity go by to share our wonderful experience at Riverbend.

My wife and I spent the last 5 days of our honeymoon in Fairbanks and stayed in the Sourdough Cabin at Riverbend. The cabin was perfect. Very warm, private, and away from the city which made good viewing of the Northern Lights right out the front of the cabin. The owners Debi and Bruce are very friendly and always happy...
