“Wonderful place to stay at reasonable price”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 20 June 2011

We stayed in Alaska for two weeks at five different cabins in Kenai, Whitier, Cordova, Wasilla and Talkeetna. The Deanali Fireside Cabin in Talkeetna was the nicest place we stayed at during our trip and was considered by us to be the best value of all places we stayed at. Definitely recommend.

Room Tip: Reserve early, this is full during the summer.

A very nice cabin in the woods. Very clean, very nice fire place and very memorable place to stay. Can see beaver in the pond next to the cabin.
Thank you to Don & Mavis for making such a beautiful place for family vacation to Talkeetna.
We finally was able to see clear Mt.Mckinley from the beach and viewing bluff. The best view of Mt.Mckinley,cant see that from Denali National park.
Talkeetna is a very nice little town and a stay at Denali Fireside will be a memorable one.
Don and Mavis is a warm and friendly host.

It had all the comforts of home--nice beds with extra pillows, a cozy fireplace, hardwood floors, and a flat screen TV. It even had blackout curtains, so that we weren't aware that the sun rose at 4AM! If I hadn't known better, I would have assumed it was brand new, given the perfect condition of everything and the host couldn't have been more accommodating. Would definitely stay here again were we lucky enough to get to Alaska again.

What a fantastic place to stay1 The Denali Fireside proved to be one of our favorite accommodations of our fairly extensive travel on 5 continents. Our room was fantastic - very clean, spacious, and decorated in a quintessential Norhwest motif. The unit included a porch with comfortable glider and chair, lovely gas fireplace, kitchenette, dining table and chairs, and beautiful quilts on the two double beds. Our room was so large that each of the two beds was actually in its own area (not separate rooms). The owners live on premises and are extremely friendly and helpful. We only wish that we could have stayed longer!

We loved this place. Clean. Spacious. Homey. Felt like a brand new cabin!

We felt so comfortable visiting Talkeetna to come "home" to a place like the Denali Fireside Cabins. We rented 3 different suites and all of our family was very comfortable. In walking distance of downtown Talkeetna. Great stay. Super nice staff!

Mavis picked up our luggage from the train station, helped us unload it and drove my injured mom to a restaurant later during our stay (we all walked, but my mom couldn't). It was so nice of her. She also dropped our luggage off at the train station as we were heading out of town. What a doll.

Having stayed in cruise line lodges and a variety of other accommodations nearby, I enthusiastically endorse Denali Fireside as the best the area has to offer. Don and Mavis and their staff keep the rooms spotless, and they will deal with noisy people when notified--the rooms are set up four per building (cabin) with separate entrances. Having a small refrigerator and microwave in each room is great, particularly if one brings in snacks and drinks from an Anchorage grocery store where they are far less expensive than in town. Yes, the train does pass behind the inn a couple times at night; however, I found that regular foam earplugs I use at home at night muffled the noise perfectly. Lastly, the convenience to the heart of Talkeetna without being in it was ideal for people who want to relax--we walked the few blocks to restaurants for breakfast and dinner each day, and keeping the Alaska-sized mosquitoes away was the toughest part (if one forgets to spray with lemon eucalyptus oil before going outside anywhere around Denali).

Room Tip: book by late winter for summer

is the best way to describe the cabins at Denali Fireside.
Hosts Don and Mavis and their staff have the highest standard when it comes to offering you lodging that is not only spotless, but respectable as well.
The spacious floor plan allows a unique arrangement of the 2 queen beds that gives privacy to our family of four.
Log furniture, authentic Alaskan décor, and a gas fireplace in each room give a warm, rustic appeal while a microwave, refrigerator and quality mattresses give you all the comforts of home.

We have a remote cabin that we access from Talkeetna, so we usually spend the night in Talkeetna before getting on the trail the next morning. Having visited most of the places in town, this is always our first choice and where we send all our visitors to Alaska.

It’s a great deal at a great price!
