We had a very warm welcome here! Debi showed us the cabin. It is a lovely cabin with a lovely view over the Chena river. The cabin is full equipment! Debi made a banana blueberry nut bread for us what was very tasty! When you go to Fairbanks, stay here!

There were five adults who spent three nights at the Riverbend Cabins and we LOVED it. We were warmly welcomed by the owners who greeted us with homemade fresh cookies and fresh tomatoes from their garden. The cabin was cute as a button, decorated with such detail and thoughtfulness, fully equipped with everything we needed. The owners loaned us their... More

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!

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
