Peaceful, Relaxing, and Quiet... Exceeded Expectations!

  • 5 of 5

We intensively investigate properties before we rent any vacation residence. Usually we hit pay dirt. This cottage was no exception. The open view of the river, the well-appointed living space, and cottage's tranquility made the stay one of the highlights of our trip. We even met the owner's sister, Kathleen was is a renowned Native American artist. Her work is featured at the Museum of the North. Thanks for making the chalet more than we had ever imaged.

Nice, comfortable stay on the river

  • 5 of 5

Great place to spend vacation time. Cottage was comfortable, and a lot of needed kitchen utensils (although didn't use them), towels, toiletries, ect. were available. The main bedroom's bed was very comfortable with cozy pillows and bedspread/covers. It was a very relaxing stay, and will rent again if needed this summer!

Thank you for the ease of use and friendly communications.

Best home away from home

  • 5 of 5

We hoped to see the northern lights on our 25th wedding anniversary. This lovely home on the banks of the Chena River was the perfect location. On the first day, we opened the door and were greeted with a warm pellet stove fire that reflected the spirit of the cheery cottage. Huge windows connect to the natural world. Beautiful art and books about Alaska surround us. We are so honored to have shared the Carlo family home. Walter and Kathleen are so kind. The weather was cloudy for several days but on the last night, the skies cleared, the Big Dipper was overhead, and the northern lights could be seen from the deck! We plan to return. It’s the most wonderful home away from home my husband and I have ever experienced.

Cozy log cabin on the river, perfect for aurora gazing!

  • 4 of 5

We enjoyed the comfort and convenience of the cabin. It had everything we needed and was clean and well maintained. Floor to ceiling windows and a great deck were perfect for keeping an eye on the beautiful surroundings, including an active aurora one night. Loved it in the winter; would love to check it out in the summer.

Great winter views!

  • 4 of 5

Home was warm and toasty when we arrived. Bright and clean! WiFi and cable were operational along with all appliances to include washer and dryer. Super close to everything Fairbanks has to offer. Short 50 min drive to Chena Hot Springs. Only issue was the bed, haven't slept on a full size since I was a kid, plus it was hard. Front room couch was more comfortable anyway, plus it offered great views of the river and skyline! I would stay there again.
