We had a wonderful time at the Riverbend in late March. My husband and I stayed in the Sourdough cabin which was perfect for two and it was well-stocked and made great use of the space. Loved the heated floors. This was our second trip to Fairbanks. On our first trip we stayed near downtown and drove out every night...

What an amazing adventure. The cabin was absolutely perfect. Me and my husband are living in Florida and wanted to see scenery and snow. This place was a winter wonderland. The fire pit outside kept us warm while we got to watch the northern lights . So amazing to see. The town was a perfect location for many activities, dog...

Our goal was to experience the Northern Lights along with winter in Alaska. The unusually snowy weather added to the winter theme, and the location had us close to snow machine opportunities, dog sled rides, ice fishing, and Chena Hot Springs to name a few. The cabin itself was great-terrific views from the balcony, toasty warm, two bathrooms, and comfortable...

Another wonderful visit. We thought we'd try somewhere different - but always came back to here. It's a great setting out of town far enough to be dark, right along the Chena River, about half way between Fairbanks and North Pole. Easy run up to Fox and easy to get into town, and off the road by a few miles...

My husband and I stayed in the Sourdough cabin (the smaller of the two cabins) in mid-December to celebrate my birthday. The property is about 25 minutes from downtown Fairbanks, which is just far enough away to feel private, yet close enough to easily explore. The cabin itself is charming and cozy, and set up with dishes, great coffee, bottled...

My husband and I did a 10 day trip to Alaska visiting Fairbanks, Anchorage, and Juneau. I am so glad that we found the Riverbend Cabins because it was truly one of the best parts of our trip. We stayed in the sourdough cabin, the smaller of the two. The place wasn't just clean, it was immaculate; adorably decorated and...

From the moment we came across Riverbend cabins when searching google we knew this was the place to stay, and it more than met our expectations!

From the very first moment of contacting Riverbend we were greeted with such helpful friendliness. Nothing was too much trouble. What a super place and by far the best place we stayed during our 5 week and 10,000 kilometer trip around Alaska and the Yukon. We booked Sourdough Cabin for three nights , primarily for my Husband's 70th Birthday celebration...

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.
