Fairbanks cabin description

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 Chinook 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 Chinook 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 Chinook cabin features a cobblestone patio with a gas propane grill, a log picnic table, a small lower deck with a handcrafted log bench, 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 Chinook Cabin has two upstairs bedrooms each with a queen sized bed. Both beds have new mattresses that are fitted with 100% high thread count cotton sheets, soft blankets and comforters. The bedrooms have one adjoining wall that can be closed with a wood folding door. Each bedroom has a separate entrance. The larger bedroom has French doors that lead to an upstairs balcony with beautiful river and northern lights views.

There is a downstairs bathroom with a Jacuzzi tub and shower and a half bath upstairs.

In addition to our Chinook cabin, Riverbend offers the Sourdough cabin. The Sourdough features an upstairs bedroom, a downstairs full bath with shower and a fully equipped kitchen. The cabin comfortably sleeps 1 - 2 guests. For more information on the Sourdough cabin, please see VRBO listing #465596.

                      Owner info

                      Year Purchased: 2002

                      About the owner: 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.

                      Why the Owner Chose Fairbanks:
                      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.

                      The Unique Benefits at this Cabin:
                      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.
