Bob's Cabins are located directly on the Kenai river and are great for fishing from the cabins and convenient to Soldotna. Bob knows the area and the river guides well. He also pays attention to the fishing reports and works with the guides to put you on the fish. In a year where the river was extremely high and the...

At home we'd call them torrential rains, but on the Kenai it couldn't stop Bob's Cabin from lining up great excursions and fine catches of Sockeye salmon and halibut. My grown son called at the last minute suggesting the trip and with little time to plan or make detailed arrangements, Bob had us in a beautiful and well equipped river-side...

I took my 19 yr old son on this trip before he started college. We had never been to Alaska so we were not sure what to expect. The whole trip exceeded our expectations! Bob arranged all the excursions, guides, and took care of all the details. Every guide was great and every trip was beautiful! From the Kenai River...

I contacted a friend of mine and told him my husband and I wanted a vacation in Alaska. Nothing too touristy and no cruise. He sent me to Bob's Cabin and Guide Service. What a blessing. I told Bob when we wanted to come, what we wanted to do, and he took over. I was a little sceptical because I...

This is a really late review, but I booked a bucket-list fishing trip for my dad and I back in mid-August 2015. Bob and Kathy went out of their way to make sure we had a fantastic time. They even successfully rearranged a couple of trips at the last minute so that we could go on the Upper Kenai river...

Stayed here in July during the sockeye run. It took a couple of days to get a feel for this spot in the river but we ended up doing well. There are 3 nice cabins all with gas grills. Bob and his team were very accommodating and came by each day to pick up the coolers of filets. At the...

CJ: Thanks so much for the great review. This was a group of 19 anglers and we had our "hands full" organizing this group into their daily activities with our guides and making sure everyone was happy at the cabins and on their guided fishing adventures. We processed everyone's fish and made sure each angler either departed with the correct...

We stayed at the riverfront cabin. It was perfect. We caught silvers and reds right outside our cabin. Bob and Kathy were great. All of the trips booked for us were amazing except for the Halibut charter. I think the guide was having a bad day. I would recommend Bob's cabin to anyone interested in a fishing trip of a...

My husband and I stayed at Bob's main lodge on the Kenai- absolutely beautiful, a comfortable and quiet place and scenic location. Bob was very welcoming and kind. Kathy was awesome! She was very hospitable and accomodating, very nice and gave us lots of insight and tips. Bob booked an ultimate fishing package with great guides and charters! We couldn't...

We stayed at the main lodge. It was an awesome place, comfortable beds, clean bathrooms and great service from everyone. They where very friendly and helped in anyway they could. I am planning a trip next year and will definitely be using them again. All the guides he put us with where great and we limited out every day.
