“What an amazing comfortable place!”
Reviewed 31 July 2011

We arrived finding the owner Kathy's directions perfect. We were alarmed because we passed a junk pile on our way on dirt roads to the Meandering Moose. We were rewarded for staying the course with beautiful accomodations. We had the entire upper floor, complete with full bathroom, huge closet, comfortable bed, TV, sofa, two easy chairs and a gorgeous view. Breakfast was great. Kathy was a pleasant hostess. A special convenience was the washer and dryer to catch up with all the dirty clothes. We would gladly recommend staying here. There were also cabins available.

You must do some meandering to the Meandering Moose. Just follow the signs not your GPS! You will be on a lot of gravel roads, but most of Alaska is gravel roads. The drive is very peaceful and beautiful. We actually stayed in the residence upstairs. It was nice. It was clean, felt very private cause we had the upstairs to ourselves. Huge window looking out the back with nice room darkening curtains, which are a must. We had cable TV, Wireless internet, which didn't work to well on my laptop, and a washer and dryer right in the suite! The bathroom was big with a big soaker tub. They also provided some lotions and shampoos that had been left from previous visitors, which I thought was nice since you can't take much on a plane. We used this as a mid way between Anchorage and Denali, we were able to wash our laundry and get ready for the next part of our trip! Enjoyed staying here.

Room Tip: We stayed in the main house upstairs suite

2 nights at the Meandering Moose Lodge. We stayed in the Snoozin Moose and the Munchin Moose cabins. The cabins were perfect and the beds comfy. I liked the sleeping loft the best. It has 2 double/mattresses and a small window over the beds. GREAT sleeping! No living area in the small cabins but who needs it with nature all around. A fire pit and picnic tables were located outside. Kathy was very knowledgable about the area and had good suggestions on what to do and where to eat.

We are so glad we stayed in this quant little town and not closer to Denali as we would have missed the gorgeous views of Mt. Kinley.
Thanks Meandering Moose Lodging!!!

Stayed here June 25, 2011. Rented the two bedrooms in the main house and also the Mangy Moose cabin. Awesome place to stay if you want to be away from the crowds but still close to downtown Talkeetna. Beautifully decorated and clean.

Kathy and Mike treated us like friends and we are so grateful to have met them. They gave us great advice on what to see and do in Talkeetna and even drove us around to show us the best views of the mountain. Accommodations were very comfortable, quiet, and clean. Great atmosphere and food, too. Book this place if you can get it, you won't be sorry!

The meandering moose lodging is cozy and clean. The lobby room is well-designed and the host is very friendly. The most comfortable B&B we've every lived. Would be back if we come to Talkeetna again.

Had a great stay. Twice. The owner was great, friendly, and informative. We stayed in the Mangy Moose cabin with private bath and kitchenette. The bed was amazingly comfy! It was the first place we stayed once we arrived in Alaska, and came back and stayed on the way back to Anchorage. Want to go back again in winter to see the northern lights and the Meandering Moose will be on my list to stay again.
