My experience at the Sourdough Cabin was EPIC!. It's so beautiful, peaceful, clean and a great place to see the Northern Lights. I traveled from NYC to Fairbanks, Alaska and was amazed the tranquility that Fairbanks has to offer. The stay at the Sourdough Cabin(s) added more to it... not to forget the Debi... she welcomed me and my friend with open arms and treated us like friends rather then just a regular Joe-Shmo (you don't see that here in NYC). I will definitely refer this place to anyone and everyone I know who is traveling to Fairbanks, Alaska. Thank you soo much!!

My friend and I stayed at the Sourdough Cabin in September. The cabin is really very nice, and we were made to feel very welcome by Debi. The main purpose of our trip was to see the Northern Lights, and to relax after spending a few days ice climbing and glacier camping. Our first night there we were able to see the lights. Quite an incredible sight to see. We managed to see them again on our second night. Sadly, on our third and final night, it was raining, so we didn't get to see them. But seeing them twice was phenomenal. We managed to see some sights while we were in Fairbanks, driving thru Denali Park, and travelling up to the Arctic Circle. Coming back to the cabin at night was great. It's very quiet and relaxing, and there's a river that runs right behind the property. Very beautiful. I wish we could have stayed longer, and I hope that we can return in the future. I highly recommend staying at Riverbend if you're in the area.

My family of 9 visited Debi and her home in August 2011 during our Alaskan Adventure. We enjoyed our stay in Fairbanks/North Pole area, especially at this river front home. Debi rents out Log cabins and Cottages as well. We stayed at the home by the river front.

The house is located about 10-12 miles from Fairbanks right by the Chena River. It is surrounded by a lot of trees yet very accessible to nearby Fairbanks Riverboat discovery, Santa Claus Haus, Fox and other areas. The road to Chena Hot Springs is very close to here as well. It was a great day trip visiting the Aurora Ice Museum at Chena Hot Springs. We also visited the Arctic Circle on the Haul road/Dalton Highway during our stay here.

The house is great with very comfortable amenities. Debi's vegetable garden provided us fresh salad that we all thoroughly enjoyed. We unfortunately did not see Moose in our backyard, but would love to come back again when we visit the area next time.

Room Tip: Watch for Moose on the river front

This cottage was so beautiful and relaxing that we had a hard time leaving to go to activities we had reserved in advance! It was extremely clean and furnished very nicely with a lot of extra touches, such as a wood stove, indoor sauna, and an outdoor fire pit overlooking the river. While there, we observed moose in the yard, a beaver taking a branch to it's lodge, and an otter swimming down the river. The potted flowers around the cottage were amazing and added to the overall beauty of the property. One very important aspect of this property was that even though it was so private, it was centrally located to any activity you would want to do. We enjoyed Chena Hot Springs, Riverboat Discovery, Alaska Railroad to Denali Park and a day trip to Barrow. We would definitely recommend this property to others, and we hope to come back soon! It was hard to leave!

Two of us stayed in the Sourdough cabin in February - what a treat! It is close enough to Fairbanks, North Pole and Chena to enjoy all, and far enough away so that you can forget those other places even exist!
We watched a couple of moose on the frozen river while eating dinner. The aurora was out one night - and we enjoyed it from the comfort of easy chairs upstairs. We spent a day at PAWS for Adventure (dog mushing school) just minutes away... and warmed up in the sauna.
The cabins are lovingly crafted. Our hosts were personable and helpful!
In short - this is the place to stay!

Room Tip: Every room is the best! Something for everyone~
