We had a great first experience here but a terrible 2nd experience. We even left the B & B two nights earlier than planned due to the fact that the innkeeper made us feel so uncomfortable. There are far too many house "rules". The innkeeper involves herself too much into your personal life. Needless to say we will never return... More

EntertainmentDir, Owner at Anschen Log House, responded to this review

I remain shocked that you would have the audacity to write such a scathing review after the dismal behavior of your family in my home. However, this is not the proper venue for airing dirty laundry. I am thankful that this was an isolated incident in a long line of stellar guests. For my own peace of mind, I need... More

First of all let me say that this B & B exceeded my expectations! I loved this log home and really loved Dawn the home owner and the hostess who made us feel like part of her family. This Log house sits on the beautiful Chena River which adds to it's ambiance. The home is spotless, the breakfasts were delicious... More

Anschen Log house is the most beautiful log house standing in an amazing location right on the a Chena River where the paddle boat passes. The house is stunning and immaculate. I stayed in the Palin Suite, it's massive. Has access to tge decking area,... More

I chose this B&B for our trip after doing research on the internet and seeing the glowing reviews and now I just have to add my own. The house itself is wonderful and unique, located right on the banks of the Chena River. The architecture is amazing, it truly is a 'log' cabin made of massive logs but with all... More

One of the best B&B in Alaska and Fairbanks. Beautiful, cosy, with a magnificent view on the Chena, Alaskan style decoration (native art, bear skin, etc.), great fireplace, etc. A real alaskan experience! And the person in charge (Dawn) is super nice. We were supposed to stay in the small room, but were upgraded to the larger one (vacant at... More

As a 35+yr. resident of Anchorage, I was looking for a unique Fairbanks stay when entertaining my fiancé, who was coming from Sweden for his first Alaska visit. The ambience of this historic log house on the Chena River is very inviting, with a fire in the floor to ceiling rock face hearth every day/evening, but the host, Dawn, and... More

Choosing to stay at this B&B will be the best decision you make when visiting Fairbanks! The log house is beautiful, cozy and comfortable. It was a perfect place to stay in the winter. Dawn, the host, is friendly and very welcoming. The house is on the river which was frozen over during our stay, but still very beautiful and... More

In January 2014, approximately 65 people visited/rented the Anschen log house to film a horror movie. While we were there, Dawn (and Sydney) treated us with all the courtesy a travel weary soul could ever want. She was stern but fair and treated us with respect and a level of professionalism that was a real breathe of fresh(and cold) air.... More
