Hear “cabin” and you think wilderness. But a “cottage”? That's a little more civilized.
That kind of comfort was the idea behind this Fairbanks resort along the Chena River. You can stay in one of 86 cottages, each with a patio and a big, photo-op-worthy flower pot, as well as a private full bath with vanity, two queen beds, phone, and TV. The owners, Linda Anderson and Steve Frank, are a third-generation Fairbanks family, and they have deep roots in the community. Their enthusiasm for this area spills over into the hotel and its personalized service. When they started the resort, they wanted guests to have plenty of privacy, as well as easy access to the trails along the river. Even so, the quiet retreat is still convenient to the airport and downtown.
Plenty of activities are also close by, too. Staff can help you book trips to the El Dorado Gold Mine, Riverboat tours, and flights to the Arctic Circle, as well as many others. In addition, the River's Edge Resort offers its own Historical Fairbanks Tour that departs every morning from the hotel and highlights some of the town's best attractions. Or, you can just take a long walk along the Chena River.
And since you’re in a cottage, rather than a cabin, you don’t have to fend for yourself for meals. The resort boasts a renowned (but comfortably casual) restaurant, Chena’s Alaskan Grill, which overlooks the river and serves steaks and fresh seafood.
