Our stay at riverbend was superb. We came to have rest, relaxation, and enjoy the beauty of nature. The Chinook cabin has everything needed to provide a comfortable stay. We were able to cook our meals, watch the northern lights at night, and enjoy the peaceful setting on the Chena river. The owners are close by and are available if...

We so enjoyed both of you! We got a kick out of both your 'independent spirits' - always ready to get outdoors to go fishing, hiking, exploring and searching out all the wonderful things to experience in Alaska's Interior. When you were leaving, we felt like we were staying goodbye to old friends! Thank you for staying in touch and...

My wife and I along with a longtime couple spent 5 nights in the Chinook log cabin just a couple hundred feet from the Chena River. We booked this VRBO so we could explore Alaska prior to meeting up with a Land/Sea Cruise in Fairbanks. The stay was fantastic. We cooked a hardy breakfast and then drove off to explore...

We had a great 5-day stay in the Chinook cabin! The property is beautiful, great log architecture, nearby river right at the backyard, and the cabin featured all the advertised amenities (wifi, kitchen, jetted tub, etc). However, it's the un-advertised touches that really made it special... fresh flowers, spotlessly clean, a personal welcome left by our hosts for us, etc....

Thank you Debi and Bruce for a wonderful retreat. Your cottages (log cabins) are absolutely beautiful and we could not have asked for more. Miss Molly was a real treat for us and touched our hearts with her playfull antics. We hardily recommend this as a primary destination for all travelers who wish to experience a real Alaskan retreat in...

We had such a blast staying at Debi and Bruce's cozy cabin! The property sits on a gorgeous garden RIGHT next to the Chena river, So peaceful and tucked away. We were able to meet their cute puppy, Molly while picking fresh produce from their well kept garden. Debi and Bruce also insisted us to use their two person kayak!!...

We had an unforgettable stay at Riverbend Log Cabins. The Chinook cabin was perfect! It was just like being at home. I came to image the aurora. I wanted to be able to walk outside and photograph. Your location was just what I wanted. I could have photographed from the balcony but I chose to walk a short way to...

My husband and I and our daughter and son- in-law rented the Chinook cabin for a week. What a perfect choice! The location is close enough to Fairbanks to be convenient yet be out in the woods on the Chena River. Our hosts were fantastic. Debi had a lovely welcome basket waiting in our well appointed cabin making us feel...

We stayed at Riverbend and absolutely are delighted we did. Our log cabin, Sourdough, was a one bedroom, clean, cozy, nicely laid out and well appointed. The second floor balcony overlooked the Chena River, forest AND open sky. Northern Lights viewing, steps from the cabin down by the river has chairs and a fire pit ready to go each evening....

We (family of 4) stayed at Riverbend in the Chinook cabin in March 2013. We were so impressed! The cabin is super comfortable and the location is perfect for aurora viewing. It is a quick trip into Fairbanks to see the sights there, pick up groceries, etc. We highly recommend Riverbend Log Cabins!!!
