James & Peggy have a great location, the breakfasts are amazing and they share their love of the Kenai river with all who visit. We have stayed here many times, as a couple, with our kids and with friends. Can't miss stay!

This Upper Kenai River Inn has stunning views of the Kenai River from your room. The rooms are nicely appointed and roomy. The river water is a deep aquamarine color due to its glacial origins, and it is truly beautiful. Peggy's wonderful breakfast is always delicious, with many homemade ingredients. James is a raconteur and a font of knowledge of... More

We stayed here this past fall and it was a lovely place to stay. The hosts were fantastic and got us hooked up with an awesome fishing trip with a local guide (John Pearson, Kenai River Float n Fish - highly recommend). It was very clean, comfortable, and nicely appointed. Right on the river with a private deck area to... More

My partner and I stayed two nights at James and Peggy's lovely home on the Kenai River. Peggy's breakfasts were first rate gourmet ... and she has a cookbook to back up her skills!

The Givens allow no credit cards, no TV, no internet. The room was nice and furnishings appeared clean, but attitude of hosts was less than gracious. They have internet, but allow no hookup through a simple ethernet, which would be free to them. They have TV, but allow none for their guests, except watching a video. They insist upon payment...

We enjoyed Peggy's morning breakfasts with plenty of great food!! The Alaskan stories and fellowship were great. The room was comfortable... More
