Cute little cottages on the River. Our cottage was clean and had coffee maker, fridge and microwave. The rates were very reasonable. It had a nice ambiance. There is also RV/ Campground on one side of the property.

Clean comfortable individual cottages right by the river. Staff very friendly and helpful. Breakfast very good (not included but reasonable priced and convenient). Quite at night and good for star gazing.

Fairbanks and the River's Edge Resort was our last stop in Alaska. We arrived and got checked to our Garden Cottage Room. Yes, a Cottage. The River's Edge is a unique hotel and RV property. It offers lodging along the Chena River. It has rooms, cottages, and RV Lot. Each cottage has a private patio and a waling trail along the Chena River. This was a great location. It is minutes from the airport, The Museum of The NORTH, and the Riverboat Ride. This was a GREAT way to end the trip. Travel, See America All50StatesLady

We recently spent the night at the River's Edge Resort and had a very good experience. The shuttle from the train station was convenient, the staff were all welcoming and the cottage we had along the river made for a great night's sleep. We had a drink and dessert at the Chena Alaskan Grill right on the premises, having already had dinner on the train from Denali NP. A lovely spot. The breakfast buffet was outstanding and very reasonably priced. My wife and I look forward to staying at the River's Edge again. Highly recommended.

If you're in Fairbanks and want an incredible salmon dinner this is the place. I don't usually order salmon at restaurants because most of them don't cook it right, Chena's is different, the salmon was cooked to perfection, lightly seasoned so the flavor of the fish comes through...it absolutely melted in my mouth. If I didn't live so far away I'd go tomorrow night. The River's Edge is also a very nice and unique hotel.
