Riverview Bed and Breakfast
Ranked #1 of 2 Gakona B&B and Inns
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed March 10, 2014

This B&B features cabins with special touches that are absolutely spotless. Cozy beds and wonderful hot showers for winter visitors. The property is right on the Copper River and if you are lucky a moose or eagle might be spotted.

The location is perfect and the owners are retired teachers who can share information about almost anyplace in Alaska. A full breakfast in the main cabin (ask about the walrus) is a treat. Complete with lots of coffee or cocoa.

Sadly we were only able to stay for one night. Be sure to book ahead.

We spent 10 days in Alaska and Riverview BB was the last place we stayed at, while on our way back to Anchorage. The couple and their son's hospitality was amazing. The place has an amazing view of glaciers/mountains and is located on the river. Their cabins were spacious (4 of us stayed in one cabin) and the breakfast was amazing! The location is awesome and the only regret for us was that we did not stay for few extra nights! We only booked for one night because they did not have a website and we did not know how the place would turn out to be. Those booking to stay at Riverview BB, our only recommendation would be that stay for at least 2 nights..

riverv@alaska.net as they haven't got around to redoing the website! Great homemade breakfasts, plus your own log cabin with bathroom. Great location for both Nabesna road and then to drive to McCarty if you want to 'do' whole of Wrangell St Elias Park. Best B&B we stayed at as you have your own privacy and then a wonderful breakfast in the owners home. They make you feel so welcome and have stories to tell :-))

A beautiful B&B log cabins on the banks of the river Gakona. Lodging is 3 miles off the Richardson highway (about 20 miles north from Glennallen), but worth the drive for a relaxing night rest or a couple of days. Staying here gives a sense of peace and tranquility, while totally immersed in natural surrounding.The cabins are relatively new (compared to nearby lodgings), spacious, beautiful views and well-kept. The owners are native Alaskans, well-natured, who have worked hard to build this place by themselves. Breakfast in the main house has great views of the river and snow-clad mountains. Owners grown own vegetables on-premises. Currently they don't accept Credit cards. Highly recommended.

Room Tip: a few cabins have direct river view.

This is the best B&B we ever visited. The Cabin was very very nice, comfortable and clean. The area is very attractive as well as the owner's organic vegetable garden :-).
The place is maintained by the owners themselves. Senior retired couple and their son. Very kind people and treated us so nice.
The charge of staying was more than decent.
Very very recommended.

We stayed only one night in the B&B, which was really great. The B&B is located perfectly right on the river bank with amazing view of snow covered mountains on the distance. Large grass area with cricket available. The rooms are wooden, clean and comfortable. The breakfast was very good with fresh products from the family greenhouses and garden. The family is very welcoming, really nice people. Overall we had a great stay and warmly recommed the place.- S Family from Israel-

Loved our stay at Riverview! The Neal's were most informative and capable hosts. Their home on the banks of the Copper River has a million dollar view including several peaks in the Wrangell-St. Elias National Park system. Superior comfort in spacious log cabins, a variety of places to sit and read or contemplate the beauty of the natural surroundings. Close by access to the Carriage House Restaurant for dinner after a day's wandering about trails of the National Park and Preserve. Just a dream visit!

Room Tip: Room 3 on the end, has the nicest view of the river, Mt. Sanborn and Mt. Drum.
