“More memorable than staying in hotel or typical B&B”
Reviewed 22 June 2013

We had a very nice stay at the Meandering Moose. We had a large group so we stayed in the main house, which had a full kitchen and two full bathrooms. Wifi was free and worked well the majority of the time, which is more than I expected for the location. We were a little nervous how we would get around as nothing is within easy walking distance and we did not have a car, but Kathy transported us at no additional cost, even if it was just to go downtown for a few hours. One thing to be aware of is that guests from other cabins come to the main house for breakfast, and one of the bedrooms and bathrooms is right next to the kitchen. This was not a problem for us as we were up early.

We had a group of 14 people of who stayed throughout the property. Some in cabins, some in the bed and breakfast, and some in their own travel trailer on the property. We had a fantastic time! Kathy is a great host who aims to please, but in the end became part of the group. The room in the bed and breakfast my boyfriend and I stayed in was perfect, even with a shared bathroom. The place is kept clean, and is very comfortable. We even bought a set sheets based off our experience with the bedding at the bed and breakfast. I truly recommend this place as it is welcoming and allows for group meals, bonfires, and space to relax. The price was also fantastic as Alaska is expensive. We will not soon forget our time at Meandering Moose!

The drive to this location was rather worrisome but the little cabin we stayed in was a nice surprise. I was also worried about it being a "dry cabin" meaning it didn't have a restroom but the walk to the restroom/ shower house was not really a problem as it stays light all night in Alaska! The price was good for this cabin. Our cabin was clean.The owner, Kathy, was very friendly. We must have miscommunicated about the time for breakfast as we didn't see anyone stirring at 8:30 a.m. when we were ready to leave. This turned out to be a blessing as the breakfast at the Roadhouse in Talkeetna is not to be missed!

We stayed in the Mangy Moose cabin (Mama, Papa, 4yo, 18mo) and had a wonderful stay. Kathy was lovely and Scott and Lisa, the caretakers (?), we're absolutely awesome. The cabin was lovely, had everything we needed to cook all our meals there, the beds were comfortable and everything was spotlessly cleaned. We will DEFINITELY be coming back!

Meandering Moose was a relaxing getaway for my husband and me with our one-year-old. We stayed in the upstairs suite and enjoyed the large room. Kathy was very accommodating to us in allowing us to do some light cooking in the kitchen to comply with diet requirements. The owners live in the lodge, but we had complete privacy. We enjoyed visiting with them and appreciated their loaning us snowshoes and recommending trails.

I loved this place! The cabin style B&B is unique and a fun way to stay. Kathy is so sweet and accommodating! I talked to her on the phone before our stay and she recommended we do a flightseeing tour through Talkeetna Air Taxi and I'm so glad she suggested it! We also received a $20 coupon per person for staying there. Also, upon our arrival she let us know of events that were happening downtown. We stayed in the Munchin Moose cabin, which was perfect for just my husband and I and gave us a great experience of a cabin but still with comfortable amenities. There were also two air mattresses in the upper attic area which we didn't need, but would be great for a family with kids. I loved that our cabin had a personalized welcome sign with our name on it when we arrived. It was such a nice thoughtful touch that made it really welcoming. The cabin also seemed very clean and on the newer side. Overall, I would recommend this to anyone wanting a comfortable and clean cabin experience. I would stay again if I was in the area.

We had a wonderful stay in the Snoozing Moose Cabin. It was absolutely charming and comfortable. Kathy was so welcoming and gracious. She let us borrow their own cross-country skis for a nice tour around some of the local ski paths which was such a great way to spend a snowy day. Our flight tour around Denali was cancelled that day but we didn't mind being snowed in one bit- we were delighted to have such a nice place to call home for a few days.

Thanks so much for a wonderful experience!
