We are beginning to lose count of the number of times we have stayed with and fished with Kenai Riverbend Resort. Needless to say, we would not return year after year if the experience was not commensurate with the expense. Captain Todd runs the best halibut trips around, especially with the expert staff (Carrie) he has..... and the river crew... More

Don and his crew know how to please the most discerning customer. Not only are the surroundings beautiful, the planned trips either fishing, sightseeing, or a myriad of other outdoor activities await you. After a long year of teaching urban children, this is my favorite place to wind and unwind! I will return this summer and hope to catch as... More

We have stayed at Riverbend resort four times over the past 8 years. They are the nicest people - always ready to help you with anything! We were unable to fish on the Cook Inlet one day because of rough waves and asked if it would be possible to go on a wildlife cruise out of Seward. They immediately got... More

Happened on this resort by chance but it was the start of what turned out to be a fabulous vacation. Don turned me on to a travel agent who planned my first week of touring Alaska. She was wonderful & made sure I did everything on my wish list & more. Don & his staff planned the 2nd week of... More

This resort is specifically designed for fishing, providing lodging, guides, equipment, fish cleaning, packaging and shipping. The lodging is rustic and the staff are friendly, and helpful. We did catch salmon. and had a great time doing so. We were able to grill the fish we caught and eat it the same night. Our only complaint is that the bed... More

My husband and I stayed at Kenai Riverbend Resort for 3 nights and 2 days of fishing in early June. From the time we made inquiries during the winter about a possible trip until we left the lodge we had excellent help and service. Don and John are very efficient, friendly and seem to really enjoy their work. Their families... More

Because my sister and I had already caught our halibut limit in Homer and were only on the Kenai Peninsula for a week, we passed on fishing with the folks here at the resort. This did NOT diminish our thoughts about our stay here for one moment. Upon check-in, we were greeted by Dohn (sorry if I got it wrong,... More

My wife and son spent 4 nights with 2 days of fishing with Kenai Riverbend Resort. They were fantastic. The accommodations in the cabin were great for our group. The fishing was even better. The guides were very friendly and very knowledgeable. The owner, Don, did a great job to accommodate us. I got sick the day before we left.... More

Never having been to Alaska to fish I did several weeks of research on-line. Finally decided on another place at first but the people did not respond promptly to my emails. I sent an email to Kenai Riverbend Resort and got a reply within 5 minutes. I called and talked with them and decided we would book. Are we glad... More

This our first time at Kenai Riverbend Resort and it will not be the last. We already decided to go back in two years. Dohn and his family run a first class resort. The staff were always around to help out and Dohn made everything easy helping us plan our trip. The cabins were great. Everything was supplied to make... More
