“Place for Peace”
Reviewed 12 August 2014

We planned a last-minute trip to Alaska and luckily we were able to book 2 nights at this historic and terrific BnB. Our hosts, Hobbs & Tom, provided a warm welcome and a very clean, comfortable sanctuary. Homemade breakfasts were awesome with so many selections you will be delighted. Dinner, by reservation, proved to be awesome with fresh greens from their garden, grilled beef filet mignon or salmon, and a homemade rhubarb & berry dessert. A train goes by the back of the property which adds a touch of romance to their home - loved the whistle! Tom & Hobbs are very engaging and entertaining hosts who will provide you with many memories over a short period of time. Our stay was the highlight of our trip to Talkeetna. We hope to return soon and recommend Fireweed Station Inn to everyone.

Hobbs & Tom were hosts extraordinaire. Fireweed station's hospitality was perfect. They were both very helpful with any questions before we arrived. We enjoyed Hobbs' dinner and breakfast that included fresh vegetables and herbs from her garden that day. Slept well in a comfortable bed after soaking in the tub the night before. A great place to stay before or after Denali national Park.

My wife and I stayed one night on July 10th at Fireweed Station and really had nice relaxing time. Tom and Hobbs were very gracious hosts. The home has been beautifully restored over the years by Tom and his friends from the time he had found it as an abandoned fish camp from the '60s. It was really interesting to flip thru the photo album detailing the restoration and work that was done over the years.
Tom and Hobbs provided a made to order breakfast for us that included some pecan waffles and bacon and fruit and more. Very delicious indeed.
The home is located about 10 miles south of Talkeetna and is situated at the end of a gravel road but is an easy drive into town. It does sit close to railroad tracks but had no problems with any train noise.
We would certainly stay at this wonderful place again!

My wife and I enjoyed our time at the Fireweed Station Bed and Breakfast. Tom and Hobbs made us very welcomed and spent a lot of time just talking with us and the other guests. We ate their Salmon Dinner which was our best meal in Alaska. Tom smoked the fish using Alder leaves and Hobbs made a delicious salad using everything from their garden. We had a delicious Rhubarb dessert. We brought our own wine for dinner. Breakfast was just as good with Tom's pecan waffles. We made this a one night stop on our way to Denali National Park but will stay longer next time. This is a definite must stop. Don't let the dirt road scare you like we first where getting to the place.

Stayed here over July 4 weekend. Tom and Hobbs are incredibly friendly and knowledgeable of the area. The Inn is just off the highway but a bit removed from the town of Talkeetna itself, but it's still just a 10-15 minute drive into town, which is a nice place itself. If you stay here, absolutely stay for dinner, as they grow their own veggies in the garden and are amazing and healthy cooks. They went above and beyond to make my girlfriend's birthday special.

The setting of this Inn is really incredible with the flowers and gardens. Where so much is contrived in most places you can stay this Inn was so refreshing and real. Hobbs and Tom were the most incredible hosts and made sure that we felt comfortable and shared from their garden and their knowledge of the area. It was really a pleasure to meet such genuine people. The breakfast way exceeded my expectations. I was so sad we only had one night and got in too late to do dinner too. The other couple that was staying in the Inn the same night as us were equally as fascinating to have conversations with. If you would like an experience unlike the norm this is the place. We stayed in Rose's room and loved the attention to details. The bed was really comfortable the the bathroom charming. This is a great location if you want to take a flight out of Talkeetna to see Denali/ Mt. McKinley which is what we did.

Hobbs and her husband Tom are delightfully gracious hosts at the historic lodge they've restored near Talkeetna, AK. Their attention to simple but elegant details of Alaskan decor in the guest rooms and common areas is exquisite. Their home-cooked meals are healthy, varied and delicious. They feed and treat their guests like family. My stays there have been most enjoyable.
