Every year, The Roadhouse allows us(The Denali Knitters) to move in, take over, and have the best winter break of all time. The rooms are clean, comfortable, and in some cases, just plain lovely. When February rolls around, the Roadhouse lets us cure our cabin fever in the very best way. The food is great, the location perfect, and the...

Talkeetna Roadhouse treated us very well. Our room was clean and well appointed. The Roadhouse is really cool with history and charm. The restaurant was great and they have washer/ dryers also. We loved it.

If you are traveling the Parks Hwy from end to end there to no reason to do it all in one day especially if have a place like Talkeetna and the Talkeetna Roadhouse to visit along way. It's a historic Alaska Roadhouse with a great atmosphere and location. (Only a few minutes walk from the Fairview and other note worthy...

My husband and I stayed here over the weekend in the garden cabin and it was the most fantastic little getaway! We wanted to take the cabin back with us it was so cute! Perfect for a couple that doesn't mind an outhouse (or a short drive to the VERY well taken care of bathrooms in the main house). Everyone...

I give this location five stars not because it is five star luxury accommodations and restaurant, but for its unique culture and its atmosphere. We were booked here as part of a tour. This is a lodge with smaller rooms, thin walls, and shared bathrooms. As long as you understand that going in, and know what to expect, you should...

I loved staying at Talkeetna roadhouse! They had good food, friendly service and a cozy, welcoming atmosphere. Everything was clean and it was located right in the center of town -- close to cross country skiing, snow shoeing and other eateries. I'd highly recommend folks stay here if they are visiting Talkeetna.

I ate an amazing sourdough pancake there for breakfast. This is the best place to eat in Talkeetna. I would like to stay here the next time I go. Super cool vibe. Everybody sits at long tables with strangers so you know everybody by the time you finish your meal. Loved this place!

Ever since I was a child in the 60s, I wanted to go to Alaska. When my plans fell through for Thanksgiving, I booked a 5 day trip to the 49th state. Wanting to make the most of my time, I booked a round trip journey on the Alaska Rail Road to Talkeetna. I had one night there, and I...

Staying at the historical roadhouse any time of year is a treat. The food is wonderful; the baked goods are exceptional and the soups and breakfasts are tasty in the family style seating (eating in a common area on a long table with everyone). I enjoy a winter's night when it is sub zero outside and just kicking back with...

This delightful cabin, built by union carpenters from the regional training center, offers a lovely and quaint get-away. The central bed and lighting make it perfect for relaxing in the winter's cold. We are used to living in dry cabins and this suited us perfectly. The cabin was exceptionally clean and well lit. Hot showers in the Roadhouse provided that...

Thanks so much for the great words about the Garden Cabin! We just finished stringing twinkly lights out to the outhouse and will be doing some other winterization projects tomorrow for a more cozy floor! Perfect timing as we just got over 4 inches of fresh snow. Look forward to having you back!

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
The Roadhouse, built around 1917, is one of the oldest establishments still in operation on Main Street in "Beautiful Downtown Talkeetna." Our kitchen is open to the public and we've become famous for big breakfasts, hearty soups, homebaked breads and genuine frontier hospitality. Our bakery produces all sorts of treats each day such as pies, a variety of cinnamon rolls, cookies, cakes, brownies, and savory pasties. The historic end-of-the-road town of Talkeetna is known today throughout the world as the base for international climbers making their way to climb Denali (Mt. McKinley), North America's tallest peak. Denali and the other peaks of the Alaska Range offer a magnificent backdrop for this picturesque town of around 800 people, located about two and a half hours north of Anchorage and halfway between Anchorage and Denali park entrance both by rail and road. The guest rooms range from private to hostel-style, rustic cabins to the school teacher's apartment located above the Talkeetna Historical Society Museum. Bathrooms are "down the hall" in typical Roadhouse fashion, and even though a bathroom has been added to Trapper John's Cabin, guests can still use its 5-Star outhouse! Breakfast is a separate charge but we provide our guests with coffee/cocoa/tea throughout their stay. ... more   less
