"A River's Edge B&B" may be the BEST experience for a tourist or temporary resident in Alaska. This B&B is located on the bank of the world famous Kenai River about 100 feet away from a very quiet street (Daisy Lane) in Soldotna, Alaska. It is owned by Forest and Oscar Nelson, who are down-to-earth, gracious and friendly hosts. Clean,... More

We recently stayed at Forrest and Oscar's place for a week. We enjoyed every minute and caught more fish than we knew what to do with. Good river access and nice people. Already planning our next trip but with a longer stay.

A river's edge was the last place we stayed in Alaska. It was a perfect stop between Homer and Anchorage before we had to head to the airport. The room was large and had plenty of room for us and our daughter. Forrest made a wonderful, fresh breakfast for us to enjoy. Forrest had many recommendations on where to go... More

My wife and I stayed there one night and enjoyed our stay. We stayed in the Americana Room and it was nicely equipped and clean. The host/owner Bonnie was very sweet and we enjoyed talking to her. She had to leave the B&B fairly early so we didn't get the full breakfast but she left a lot of breakfast items... More

Yes, it was not our first visit to River's Edge B and B. Hopefully it won't be our last. Forrest and her hubby Oscar are proprietors. Forrest is easy to talk to and very knowledgeable about the area. Her rooms are huge, extremely clean. Large bathrooms with the best towels ever! The bed was the MOST COMFORTABLE bed we slept... More

We stayed here for a couple of nights on our honeymoon from the UK. We really enjoyed it and are very thankful to Forrest and Oscar for their warm welcome and hospitality. Our room was great and just what we needed. It was very spacious and comfy! We had to change plans during our stay (weather problems) and Forrest was... More

We stayed here for a couple nights and absolutely loved it. We had Wifi and TV with a large room. It also felt very private as you are on one side of the house whilst the family live on the other side. The house is on the banks of the magnificent Kenai river and it was lovely sitting on their...

Our family of six spent three wonderful days there. The rooms and bathrooms were large and very clean and very private. We used both rooms and felt so comfortable. Forrest made sure we had all the comforts of home, and her breakfasts were enjoyed by all! Our coffee was ready every morning and the extra snacks and breakfasts, especially the... More

I am so glad we found this bed and breakfast! The room is just like the pictures, it's separate from the rest of the house and there's a stairway down to the river. It felt like home away from home. Forrest's breakfasts were delicious. It was perfect. Can't wait to come back and stay again!
