RIVERFRONT COZY LOG CABIN/BEAUTIFUL FURNISHINGS & FULL BATH

Photos and Description of this 1 bedroom holiday cabin in Fairbanks - Riverbend Log Cabins

Authenic Alaskan Log Cabin with all the comforts of home!

For an unforgettable Alaskan experience, we invite you to stay in our beautifully hand crafted log cabin. Built on the banks of the scenic Chena River, Riverbend Log Cabins offers a peaceful and secluded 3 ½ acre setting that is centrally located between historical Fairbanks and North Pole Alaska. The rustic elegance of the Sourdough Cabin is enhanced by the beautiful river view and surrounding boreal forest. Trees have been cleared in front of the cabin to provide an unobstructed view of Northern Lights. Abundant wildlife – moose, eagles, beaver, waterfowl are often seen from the cabin. Moose frequently visit the property – both during the summer and winter months.

The Sourdough Cabin features lovely, comfortable furnishings and beautiful artwork. An outdoor log steam sauna provides a perfect way to relax after a long day. For enjoying the outdoors the Sourdough cabin features a cobblestone patio with a gas propane grill, a small lower deck with a porch swing and a larger second story balcony with table and chairs. The fully equipped kitchen includes a stove and oven, microwave, dishes, cutlery, toaster and coffee maker, refrigerator and everything needed for meal preparation. The cabin is stocked with complementary Alaska blend gourmet coffee and condiments.

The Sourdough Cabin has one upstairs bedroom with a queen sized bed constructed from local diamond willow. The pillow top mattress is fitted with 100% high thread count cotton sheets, soft blankets and comforter. French doors lead to an upstairs balcony with beautiful river and northern lights views. The bathroom features a shower, pedestal sink, toilet and heated floors. The cabin is perfect for 1 or 2 guests.

In addition to our Sourdough cabin, Riverbend offers the Chinook cabin. The Chinook features 2 upstairs bedrooms, a downstairs full bath with shower and Jacuzzi tub and a half bath upstairs. The cabin comfortably sleeps 4 guests. For more information on the Chinook cabin, please see VRBO listing #118558.

Guestbook comments from the owner
We stayed only 3 nights, but wish it could have been more. We came to Alaska to see the Northern Lights and we we lucky enough to seem them all 3 nights. Our cabin balcony was a great viewing area. What a beautiful part of the world you live in here. We leave with unforgettable memories of Alaska. Thank you for making us feel very welcome and taking the time to get to know us. We would love to see how wonderful it must look here in the winter, as we can't imagine the river freezing over!

Bruce & Debi have lived in Alaska for a combined 57 years. Bruce is an avid hunter, fisherman, craftsman and gardener. Debi enjoys spending time with the grandchildren, various forms of glass art, watercolor, gardening and visiting with our guests. Bruce is looking forward to his upcoming retirement from the University of Alaska and Debi is a retired bookkeeper.

Debi Hanson purchased this cabin in 2002

We both had a lifelong dream of building a log home. When we found this property, we 'just knew' it was the perfect land to start the process of fulfilling our dream. The combination of the serene riverfront location, the surrounding boreal forest, wildlife, wild berries and flowers gives the feeling of being in a sacred, special place. We made the decision in 2006 to build additional cabins so that we could share our dream with others. We thoroughly enjoy the wide variety of guests that stay in the cabins. We love sharing information and stories about our Alaskan lifestyle and hearing about the lives and travels of our guests.

Quiet, peaceful riverfront setting, centrally located between Fairbanks and North Pole, Alaska. The rustic elegance of the cabin, comfortable furnishings and beautiful artwork is enhanced by the gorgeous river view and surrounding boreal forest, creating a perfect place to rest and relax on your holiday or vacation. Riverbend's Sourdough cabin provides an excellent location to view and photograph the Northern Lights. (Note: Our property with the Northern Lights in the background is featured on the front page of the 2012 Fairbanks Vistior's Guide). Opportunities to view and photograph a variety of wildlife (moose, waterfoul, beaver & eagles). Fishing in front of the cabins, nearby hiking trails and centrally located to Interior Alaska's activities and attractions.

Relaxing cabin with personality and great hosts!

  • 5 out of 5
The Sourdough Cabin at Riverbend was exactly what we needed for a relaxing stay in Fairbanks. The downstairs kitchen and living room provided everything from cooking a meal, planning your time in the area, and relaxing after a sauna. Yes, there is a wood-burning sauna that felt incredible on a cold evening. The upstairs of the cabin hosts the bedroom, another porch, and tons of direct TV channels for those times when you just want to relax indoors. On our second night, we looked out the windows at 1 am and saw the aurora from the upper deck. We cooked meals on the outdoor grill even as the snow fell. The cabin is right on the river with walking trails along the shoreline. Debi and Bruce are great hosts and went out of their way to ensure a perfect stay. The most recent addition, a beautiful labrador named Molly, may have you spending more time around the property than planned, as she enjoys interacting with the guests.

Wonderful Alaskan Hospitality!

  • 5 out of 5
This was a wonderful place to begin our 15 day visit to Alaska. During our 3 day stay, the owner went out of her way to make us feel welcome, including giving us some insect spray for the mosquitoes! When we arrived after bedtime on the first evening, she had left breakfast food for the next day. We would recommend this spot to anyone who wants to be a little out of Fairbanks but close enough to go into town to see the sights there. It is cozy, comfortable and beautifully decorated. Thanks again for making our trip memorable. Debbie & Fran from NC

Located on the banks of the Chena River with abundant wildlife (moose, beaver, eagles & waterfowl), the Sourdough Cabin has the best of what Interior Alaska has to offer. The cabin is situated on 3 ½ secluded, peaceful acres and sits next to Riverbend’s two bedroom Chinook cabin (see VRBO #118558). The option of renting both cabins is available for larger groups. The owner who lives on the property is happy to answer guest’s questions and help with planning your activities. During the long summer days, guests can enjoy an outdoor cookout, hike the nearby trails, pick wild blueberries and raspberries, fish for Arctic Grayling or seasonal King Salmon, go boating on the river or nearby lakes or relax on the cabin’s deck or riverbank. Summer guests enjoy nearby gold panning (we provide panning tools for the more adventurous) at public sites or Gold Dredge #8, a paddle boat ride on the Riverboat Discovery, visiting our local museums (Alaska Museum of North is a favorite), floating the Chena River or taking a drive to Denali National Park. For guests who like to fish, we do provide basic fishing gear. Our winter guests enjoy our magnificent displays of the Aurora Borealis, the wood fired outdoor sauna, dog mushing, soaking in the waters of Chena Hot Springs Resort, ice fishing and downhill and cross-country skiing. Sitting around our campfire and watching the northern lights is by far the favorite activity of our winter guests!
