We've never met a more warm, accommodating and friendly couple than Forrest and her husband, Oscar. They welcomed us and made us feel like family.
Tucked between the towering pines and aspen, "A River's Edge" is not only comfortable and spacious, it is right on the Kenai River! Fish from the sturdy aluminum dock without even getting wet! The fish cleaning facility is right on the dock and there's freezer space in the garage for your daily catch. Nature graces the ground with fascinating exotic mushrooms, low bush cranberries, and lingonberries. Overhead the sights and sounds of gulls and bald eagles vie with spectacular sunsets and the rapid, non-stop rush of the silty grey Kenai River. "A River's Edge" is the peaceful place "to get away from it all" and "enjoy it all".
By chance, we were lucky to stay in all three of the available accommodations. The "Blue" Room, the "Americana" Room and the "Apartment". All were lovely, spotless, and neat as a pin. The cozy common area is a dining area with a full size refrigerator. Breakfasts were a delicious treat! "Chef" Forrest's choice ranged from bacon and eggs with toast & butter, fresh fruit, home baked goodies, fruit juice, coffee, teas, to an assortment of high quality hot chocolates, yogurts, and cereals. I guarantee you will not leave hungry! I am gluten sensitive and I especially appreciate that she made a special effort to accommodate my needs.
Hunters and fishermen alike will enjoy the many trophy mounts and the stories that go with them.
It is hard to believe tucked away in this peaceful place, but you are not far from town. We would highly recommend your trip to the Kenai Peninsula includes several nights' stay at " A River's Edge".
