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,...

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...

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 searched high and low for a nice place to stay and see the Northern Lights without having to drive around or do a tour. We saw lights 3 nights of the five we stayed here. One night we watched from inside our cabin. Our hosts, Bruce and Debi were wonderful They were great about letting us know when the...

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...

Love the cabin! Warm, clean, lovely and you could find nearly all your needs. Debbie and Bruce are perfect hosts. They will remind you everything! Like when is the aurora, where to go, and I love Debbie's homemade bread! You could see northern light in your cabin, but if you want to have a better scene, then have to go...

Our ultimate goal was to see the northern lights in all their glory. Not only did we achieve this, but we did it in a very warm, welcoming and accommodating environment. Debi and Bruce are perfect hosts and a wealth of local knowledge. We stayed in the smaller of the the two cabins; 'Sourdough'. It's very cosy, nice and warm...

Thanks so much for the great review and posting the fantastic picture of the northern lights you took at Riverbend Log Cabins! We agree that the Sourdough cabin is quite cozy and warm, even on a cold Alaskan winter night and offers a perfect location for viewing the Northern Lights. It is wonderful you were able to experience a time...

We love this place so much that we decided to add our 1st review on TA. Everything was perfect. Beautiful, warm and cozy private cottage in the woods. We booked 6 nights stay in Chinook Cabin initially but we loved this place so much that we ended up extending another 2 nights here. A well maintained & nicely decorated cabin...

Sated four nights in the Chinook cabin. Great accommodation with all amenities and overlooking Chena river. Bruce & Debbie are great hosts, proud and enthusiastic Alaskans with a wealth of knowledge of local area. First night saw magnificent display of Northern Lights. Peaceful, scenic location. Could not recommend more highly.

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!
