“Quiet seclusion”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 6 October 2013

The Inn is located next to River Talkeetna, 5 mins. drive to the main village; they call it Downtown. We were a family of 6 and stayed overnight in the main suite; a large spacious living room with a well appointed kitchen and washroom on the Ground Floor and 3 bedrooms on first floor, only one with an attached washroom, others had to go downstairs. Total seclusion; there was not a soul anywhere throughout our stay; no other guests or staff.

The accommodation is comfortable, but lacks maintenance. The place needs airing and cleanliness is lacking. Its such a lovely location, but the garden is in shambles.

If you want to stay long, do your provision shopping at Fred Meyers at Wasila en-route.

My husband and I stayed here for one night and fell in love with the place! It's spacious, clean, comfortable and the owners are very accommodating. We stayed in the Talkeetna room, and the bathroom was huge for us! There wasn't too much in the kitchen at that time to make breakfast but that was alright becuase we had decided that we were going to eat out that morning anyway. My only suggestion to visitors would be to bring your mosquito spray since the place is right by the water. Oh, the train station is close by so light sleepers may hear that go by in the middle of the night! We slept with our window open; if it was closed it wouldn't have been an issue at all. All in all, a great place to stay and highly recommended!

We have stayed at the the Eye of Denali a few times now. We love it because it's just like having our own place in Alaska....all to ourselves. We don't have to worry about other guests, we can cook our own food and not have to worry about when places close, or having a late night snack. We can hang out together in the living room...and then everyone has their own bedroom. We like this way more than staying in your typical hotel. And in the summer...hanging down at the river...lounging in the hammock. Really...what more could you ask for?

This place had a great view by the river. It was quite roomy. Two upstairs bedrooms shared a bathroom downstairs. The heater was fuel oil, so that smell was present. The inn was clean, but the kitchen was not spotless. It was rustic but very nice. The inn fit in with the flavor of Talkeetna - outdoorsy.

our group stayed at Eye of Denali for two nites, enjoyed it very much. there were 6 of us, so we were happy to be able to get the entire cabin. It's not the Ritz, but very comfortable. I think for a family of 5, 6 or more, the entire cabin is the way to go.
One suggestion I would make is to trim some of the trees along the river to have a better view of Mt McKinley.

We have used the Eye of Denali 3 times now and will likely come back.
It is conveniently located within walking distance of beautiful downtown Talkeetna. The views are stunning and and we love being able to cook our own food. Lots of space for kids. Reservations are easy and the hosts accomodating.
