Great location right on the Chena RIver and close to Fairbanks. Living room & deck were excellent with lovely views of the country side. Kitchen was functional and having sister, Kathy, next door was convenient.
The downside for us was the bedroom with a double bed against the wall. Difficult for a couple to get into and out of, especially over night.
The second bedroom off the garage served the purpose, but not ideal.
Overall, we enjoyed our stay.
The property is gorgeous and we loved being on the Chena River and seeing snowmobiles and people snowshoing up and down it. The little pellet stove warms the house amazingly well and adds to the ambiance. Walter was very helpful and answered any questions i had. We will deffinitely be back to stay one day! Thank u for a memorable exerience! We love AK!
Absolutely perfect in every way. We were lucky enough to rent this house for our final 2 nights in Fairbanks. This place did not disappoint! The location was awesome being right on the water. The house was very nice with an indoor toilet that we have missed as our last 2 places we stayed at had outdoor toilets. This is the norm for the majority of cabins in Alaska but at 41 below zero that is rough! With the cold weather the ability to park the car in the attached garage was priceless and the pellet stove made the house very cozy. I cannot say enough good things about this place and the value was great. We stayed here for less than most hotels have cost us. The owner Wally was great to deal with and his communication was really good. He was available at anytime and was a joy to talk to. If you are looking for a reasonable, clean, modern rental with a great view right on the river this place is it! We travel extensively and have stayed in many nice places but this rental is one of our top 5 places to stay! It will NOT disappoint and neither will the owner.
This was our second time staying here. We love the location on the river and it's close to everything in Fairbanks... Hope to stay again next year. Great house !
The photos don't do justice to this property - it's a really wonderful cottage!
We thoroughly enjoyed the sights and sounds of the Chena River going by. Seeing the Riverboats go by from the cottage (and then seeing the cottage go by when we road on the same riverboat!) were awesome. (How DO you keep that yard so green? I need some tips for home - LOL.)
Lots of great amenities that added to the stay as well. The bumper pool table, telescope and hot tub were all used during our stay and added to the fun and relaxation. Comfortable beds, solid WIFI signal, HD TV and modern kitchen/bath were all great to have as well.
The location is also within 15-20 minutes of Fairbanks most family friendly attractions - Gold Dredge 8, Riverboat Discovery, Pioneer Park...
To be honest with you, I'm hard-pressed to give up this secret place (as you would be crazy not to book this rental) but it wouldn't be fair to the owners to keep this gem a secret. We have stayed at many rental properties throughout Alaska, and this was by the far the best one yet. It exceeded our expectations with the value, and the amenities. This is a magical property located directly on the Chena River, and the pictures certainly don't do it justice!
From the time you pull in the driveway and see the craftsmanship of this property, you will know you picked the perfect place to relax and soak in the Alaskan culture. You are so close to the river you can watch the riverboats go by as you sip a drink from the hottub or you can relax in front of the chiminea while cooking some salmon on the grill. From the time we arrived, everything was perfect. The house was spotless ( I'm a clean freak and I didn't "reclean" anything) and the kitchen was equipped with all the necessities, the grills and the hottub were ready to go. Normally at rentals you are responsible for providing your own paper/detergent products but not here, everything you need is available. The bed was very comfortable as well and we slept amazing here!!!
I can't say enough words about the owner, Wally, a kind native Alaskan. He was only a phone call away. However, we didn't need to call him because his sister, Kathleen, a famous Alaskan artist, was next door to assist us with the hottub and provide us with great local info that really took our vacation to another level. (Not to mention that she brought over king salmon for us to try--after inquiring about the different types of salmon). All I can say is that I promise this property will meet and exceed your expectations in every way! Thank you Walter and Kathleen, for providing us with the experience of a lifetime!!! We are already looking forward to planning our next vacation, and we haven't even left Alaska yet!
Witness the summer midnight sun and activities and the chance to witness the spectacular Aurora Borealis.
