Stay

Posted Jul 14, 2014
Pros: Location ease to access and the single cottages instead of rooms.
Cons: Better follow thru checking the rooms to make sure that everything had been done correctly and the room was ready for someone to stay.
Enjoyed our stay but it would have been nicer to have had a frig in the room and that maid service would have remembered to leave wash cloths and to have cleaned the coffee pot, and refill the fixings to have coffee without having to call the front desk to have it sent over. Also would have been nice to have an air conditioner to cool the room down at night. The one supplied was not adequate and room remained very hot and stuffy.

Cons: I was happy with the way thing's are.
Location: I really enjoyed our location, everything is fine as it was with my husband and I.
we enjoyed our stay very much. We love the little cottages, clean, quiet and the river is great. We will stay with you again on our next visit. Room was cleaned very nicely.

Close to UAF

Phone always had message light come on at midnight. Staff said phone line issue. Had to leave phone off the hook so light doesn't interfere with sleep. Other room we reserved had plumbing issue. Toilet would gurgle and foul smell off and on during the night.(guest in that room said not bad enough to complain). (stayed 4 nights at hotel). Staff at the restaurant were awesome (friendly, conversative, happy, etc.). Great atmosphere (the water, ducks, grounds.) We stayed here before (4 yrs ago). Will return. Just hope their attn to maint. will be better.

Perfect spot on the river

Posted Sep 17, 2013
Pros: The cottages give you privacy while providing options for dining within walking distance. We also walked along the river which was quite nice.
Cons: Pathways across the driveways to bring luggage, a little bumpy on the gravel.
Location: Train to Denali was our destination-we did not explore Fairbanks.
We flew into Fairbanks and were picked up at the airport for a short ride to the Rivers Edge. Very cute private cottages, lots of hanging flower pots, clean rooms with outside tables to enjoy the patios. Had dinner at the Chena's Alaskan Grill which was a short walk from our place and can be reserved through the hotel site, good food-reasonable prices for a steak house kind of meal- and breakfast in the main lodge. Breakfast a little pricey for the buffet but good food, they have a continental option or full breakfast and they provide a shuttle to the train station. The only downside would be dragging the suitcases over the gravel driveway to the rooms but I am sure the staff would assist if asked. All in all a great start to our trip, should have booked two nights and explored Fairbanks more.

Private, cozy & quaint

Posted Sep 10, 2013
Cons: Wish they were open in winter. Would be nice if they had a DVD player, but we used our computer instead.
Location: Excellent location, near the airport & Univ. of Fairbanks. Close to major stores(Fred Meyer, Safeway) and good restaurants. Easy access to major hwys.
We stayed 3 nights, in one of the garden cottages. It was quiet, spacious, and very clean. Everything was maintained & in excellent repair. We loved the individual patio, complete with table & chairs & a large hanging planter of flowers, and sliding glass door for access. There was even a row of bushes in front of the patio for more privacy. We felt like we were miles away from civilization, in our own little world! It was very pleasant to stroll around the grounds, with the garden-like atmosphere and white, tidy cottages. We would definitely stay here again, and wish they were open in winter!
