This was our second time spending a week at Riverbend with the best hosts ever – Debi, Bruce and their black lab, Molly. Last March we stayed in the Sourdough Cabin, which is perfect for a couple, and this March we stayed in the Chinook Cabin as we brought along our niece. The Chinook is bigger than the Sourdough and... More

It should first be noted that this is our first TA review...notable because we are frequent international travellers and have utilized all levels and styles of accommodation...we couldn't let this opportunity go by to share our wonderful experience at Riverbend. Deb and Bruce thought of everything when creating these beautiful cabins...we are pretty meticulous people and there wasn't a thing... More

My wife and I spent the last 5 days of our honeymoon in Fairbanks and stayed in the Sourdough Cabin at Riverbend. The cabin was perfect. Very warm, private, and away from the city which made good viewing of the Northern Lights right out the front of the cabin. The owners Debi and Bruce are very friendly and always happy... More

Had a great time staying at the Sour Dough Cabin. Everything was perfect and very comfortable. Saw the northern lights and all the recommendations from Debi and Bruce were spot on. It was a very authentic Alaskan adventure with great host. Thank you so much! Will definitely stay here again!

This place is absolutely beautiful. My wife and I stayed here as part of our honeymoon and it really lived up to the reviews. We were welcomed when we arrived by the owners of the property Debi and Bruce and shown to our accommodation. We stayed in the Chinook cabin. There was a basket of treats awaiting us and the...

Thank you for taking time to write such a nice review! We're so happy that you were able to experience the Northern Lights during your 'honeymoon stay' with us and that you enjoyed the Chinook cabin! We're sorry about the intermittent Wifi connection. Alaska is known for having slow internet speeds, especially in remote locations like ours. Even though we... More

Our last-minute getaway to Alaska to see the Northern Lights was beyond expectations! We are a mid-30's couple from Huntington Beach, CA and got lucky when Riverbend had a cancellation that allowed us to stay with them for 5 nights in March, 2014. The hosts were gracious and went above and beyond to make our stay comfortable. The cabin was... More

What a wonderful place!! The cabin was warm, welcoming and in such a fantastic location. The cabins are slightly out of town, but close enough to be convenient and far enough way for perfect peace and quiet ( and a great spot to see the Northern Lights! ) Debi and Bruce made us feel very welcome, gave us lot’s of...

Staying here was by far the highlight of our honeymoon trip in Alaska. Everything was perfect! The cabin was extremely clean, cozy and welcoming! Bruce and Debi were amazing hosts. (We loved their dog Molly too!) I cannot imagine finding a better place in Fairbanks. If planning a trip to Alaska - I highly recommend spending some time in Fairbanks... More
