“Much better places in Talkeetna”
Reviewed 2 April 2013

I stayed here for the Oosik ski race this year rather than outside of town because we wanted to be close to the action. There is no link to town so it is a long walk around so we should've just stayed elsewhere. The place was not very clean and there are much nicer places for the same or less money. The showers are also dangerous as they are very slick. The rooms are super noisy and the beds uncomfortable. And good luck finding a plug to charge your phone.

I have eaten here three times, every time, was excellent. The Swiss stlye french toast is amazing, the Rosti also solid. I love the decor, it is very cozy, and the hospitality Alaskan style. If you are in Talkeetna you could do worse. Never stayed in the inn I will leave that to others.

We stayed here for the Oosik Classic ski race. Not good at all. The walls are paper thin and the family next to us had a crying baby so we were up all night before the race, which was frustrating. The TV and the phone and the bedspread in the room were straight out of 1970. Kinda icky. The night before we stayed at the Meandering Moose B&B 1 mile away for the same price and it was very nice and clean and quiet -- stay there instead.

Our group of 4 overnighted in talkeetna to take an early flightseeing trip.

This place was easy to find, quick check-in. We stayed at the two-story house in the back.

The rooms were clean, warm.. Bathrooms were nice (we came form Chena where everything was quite the opposite)

The owners and staff were very friendly. One of them even ran back home to get DVD's for our friends to watch.

Quick comment on location: This place is actually away from what you consider "downtown" of talkeetna - the shops, the roadhouse, etc. it's perfectly walkable in the summer. in the winter with the snow piles, a bit less so. This place is within spitting distance to the airstrip though. So for the photographers who want to get an early morning flightseeing for the fantastic light - it's perfect. Your other choice would be to drive up from anchorage for a few hours and flight see at noon - you don't get the colors or the angle of light to draw dramatic contrasts.

We stayed here for 1 night on our way back from Denali.
We even paid extra for a room with a jacuzzi, thinking we would want to be in one after our Denali hikes.

We checked all their reviews and knew that people highly recommended their restaurant.
Since it was raining, we decided to stick with it, and had dinner.
We ordered their schnitzels and they were delicious!
Highly recommend having them if you stay here!

However, kind of diappointed with the jacuzzi, or should I say with their hot water issues.
It takes a while to heat up the water in the tank, and the tank itself is shared with 2 rooms or more. So, if your neighbors take a shower ahead of you, you will probably have to wait for a good 45 minutes or so, if not an hour if you want to take a hot shower!

So I ended up not using the jacuzzi at all, and taking a damn cold shower...
Not to mention, they have internet access in the rooms and a TV set, but can't watch TV on it.
You will have to rent a video if they are open across the street, or watch TV in the restaurant.
We ended up going over there watching the football game.

But for 1 night, it is all good.

We stayed here for two nights. We had an excellent room with no complaints whatsoever. Went fishing one morning and Vern (Owner) told us that if we caught a silver salmon to bring it back and he would cook it up for our supper. He did exactly that and all I can say is that it was absolutely wonderful. Would definitely stay there again.

We stayed here for one night-glacier flight next morning. Rooms cleaned and good size. Restaurant on site had good food. No TV but dvd rental place across street. Location convenient to Talkeetna and airplanes. Good place to sleep for the price.
