Our first night here was the only night we got an unobstructed view of Denali. It was amazing. We sat on the back porch and watched for a couple of hours. The light was amazing, I sketched and did a watercolor. We had 4 adults and 2 kids with us. It was tight with the kids staying downstairs while the... More

There were four of us on our Alaska trip and we stayed in four different places - all different. Whitney's Denali View Cabin, though the smallest cabin we stayed in, was our favorite! We loved the charm, the little bit of roughing-it (small kitchen, tiny odd shower, not a big deal), the comfortable beds, the big windows looking out into... More

We stayed for 3 nights in September. 1st there is no doubt this is a fantastic view of Mt. McKinley. But based on the fact that McKinley is visible on 1 out of 3 days normally the quality of the cabin does come into play. We did see McKinley the 1st day and had a great view and sunset. The... More

We drove up on a beautiful sunny day and saw the gorgeous Denali View Guesthouse that we were staying in. The owner, Whitney, was still cleaning it since we were early, but she welcomed us to come around to the back porch and enjoy the amazing view of Mt. McKinley in the background. All I could think when we stepped... More

I recently stayed at Traleika for a night on my way up from Homer to Denali. There were four of us, and we stayed in the Birchcrest cabin. I loved the view despite the rather gloomy weather, and it was thrilling to see a moose poking its head out as I drove up the hillside! The cabin was beautiful inside,... More

With little idea of what to expect, we wound our way up the switchbacks on a gravel road to the most perfectly located cabin amongst the trees with spectacular views of Denali. It helps that we had flawless weather while in Talkeetna, which provided us stunning mountain vistas from our cabin's balcony and master bedroom, but even if it had... More

We stayed here for 2 days when our friend came to visit. Plenty of room for 5 people and a quiet place. It was rainy and cloudy when stayed so we didn't get to see the nice view of Denali but we still loved it. We would like to go back next summer! Beautiful and peaceful place!

The evening we arrived at the Denali View Cabin, we were in awe! The amazing clear day, as well as, the owner, Whitney, warmly welcomed us! The view…oh, the view! We were so grateful we could rest there, enjoy dinner on the deck, and anticipate our flight over the majestic Denali mountains the next day! We would have liked to... More

We were made to feel at home in the beautiful cabin and we spent the night with fog and rain surrounding us. Laughter and a scrabble game commenced into the wee hours. In the morning as the fog lifted Denali and the Alaska Range came into view and this is the perfect place to capture perfect photographs of The Great... More

I rate this facility five stars, since I think anyone staying in Talkeetna is staying for the view of Denali. We stopped at six of the ten places listed as public locations for viewing Denali on our drive up, and only one matched the view from our porch at Traleika. Even the locals commented on how good the view is... More
