This was our 2nd visit in the Riverbend Cabin in Fairbanks. We stayed 1 week and had a wonderful time. Arriving at our little cabin (the Sourdough) was like coming home. The hosts Debi and Bruce did everything to make us feel so good. The welcoming fresh flowers in the cabin, the vegetables from the own garden and of course... More

Word of advice to the owners of the place: if you don't want to be reached at hours you wish to remain undisturbed, utilize this wonderful thing we call a VOICEMAIL. It's really not difficult to redirect calls. I was extremely excited to inquire about the place because of all the amazing reviews. I was too tired to even think... More

This review was just brought to our attention by returning guests staying in one of our cabins. They said they were shocked by the review because “it certainly has never been our experience”! It’s terribly sad that someone who has never stayed in one of our cabins can go on this website and demean our business. As this person stated,... More

Great location, everything you can think of doing in Fairbanks area is just a short drive away. Debi & Bruce gave us lots of helpful advices on planning our trip. Bruce made sure the fire pit is ready for us to use every night. The cabin itself is very cute and cozy. During our 4-day stay, many times we had... More

If you're planning a trip to Fairbanks, I can't imagine a better place to stay than Riverbend Cottages. Located on the banks of the Chena River, you really get the feel of rural Alaska, while only a short drive from downtown Fairbanks. This was our 3rd trip, each in March, and we couldn't have been happier. March is a great... More

Do you have viewing the Aurora Borealis on your bucket list? You can't do better than to go to Fairbanks, Alaska in March. And once there, the Riverbend Log Cabins is a great base for exploring Alaska during the day and viewing the Aurora at night. Located outside of Fairbanks near North Pole, Debi and Bruce offer two cozy log... More

Riverbend was the perfect place to stay in Fairbanks for our trip to Alaska. The Chinook cabin is warm and homey with special touches throughout to make it ultra-cozy. We sat on the porch for breakfast each morning, despite the cold weather, because it was simply too beautiful not to. The location on the Chena was perfect for scenery, privacy,... More

Debi and Bruce Hansen are the perfect hosts of this beautiful log cabin retreat about 20-25 minutes east of Fairbanks city center. The photos online are beautiful, but even they don't do it justice. My husband and I stayed there when a foot of snow covered the ground and truly made the place a majestic winter wonderland. Debi greeted us... More

We stayed in the Sourdough cabin in February - arriving late at night & checking out early a few days later. While we did not get to visit with our hosts, they took good care of us, leaving a continental breakfast on our arrival day (which we scarfed part of at 1am when we got in). The cabin were well...

We stayed in Chinook cabin for 5 nights in December 2015 and we can't say enough good things about it! It had a home away from home feel to it. The cabin was toasty warm and comfortable, with nicely decorated interior, and everything we needed. The view of winter wonderland everyday was just amazing and we did see the Northern... More
