We stayed August 30th. As soon as we arrived all four of us said we should have planned to stay several nights. The cabins are like new and are more of a house than a cabin. As stated, the view of Denali is the next best thing to flying over it. The owner stopped by to make sure we were... More

Very nice cabin....lots of space...seating for three is adequate but not for a group of four comfortably unless you bring out the bed pillows for the floor. The view is spectacular, though, so lack of seating is a small compromise.

Only stayed one night due to Wild Fire -- was hoping for 2 nights. Lots of room in main cabin area and comfy. Very Clean. View was Amazing. We were in the cabin on one of the HOTTEST day (at least 88 & sunny) - the back windows were open so the HEAT poured in. No way to cool it... More

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!
