For the solo traveller like me it is too quiet. Walking distance to town, clean and with well appointed shared bathroom and kitchen. More suited to a group or family. Has the feel of a place that does not get a lot of use as there are no instructions on how to use the heater and the video does not... More

Paula is a great host and the place is clean and comfy. The guest house is on the quite side of Talkeetna, off of the main street and downtown part. We stayed in room #1 on the ground floor. It has a private bathroom however to get to it you have to cross the leaving room and the dining area,... More

Paula is Great! Down home, Salt of the earth. She runs a good place. Right off of Downtown, on a quiet side street. She has bikes you can use, A refrig and kitchen for any guest to use if needed. She is what I had in mind when I think about a female in AK. She had just finished up... More

We stayed here overnight during our trip to Alaska in June 2015. Paula was extremely helpful over the phone and via email in helping us make the reservations, and with suggestions for places to eat and travel in general with a large family. The place itself is wonderfully kept and has a lot of videos, books and games to keep... More

We had a wonderful 3 nights here. We stayed in the Room 2 Upstairs. There were 3 of us and there was lots of space. The Guest House is only 2 blocks from Main Street Talkeetna, but you wouldn't know while it relaxing on the Front Porch. Very peaceful setting. It was a quick stroll to get to the Restaurants,...

We stayed here overnight during our trip to Alaska in August 2013. Paula was extremely helpful over the phone and via email in helping us make the reservations, and with suggestions. The place itself is wonderfully kept and has a lot of videos, books and games to keep the visitors entertained.

We had a great room that accommodated the three of us in very comfortable beds with plenty of room for all our stuff. The Guest House is conveniently close to the town and the river so just a short walk gets you to where you want to be if that's not relaxing in the cozy living room. Paula was most... More

My two girlfriends and I stayed here one night after camping in Denali National Park. This was the perfect place to rest and relax after camping! Paula was incredibly accommodating with our arrival and departure times. Our room was super comfortable, and the bathroom is very clean and nice! We loved how close it was to downtown, making our walk... More

We stayed here one night and thoroughly enjoyed the cosy, homely atmosphere of the guesthouse. Being only a couple of minutes walk from the lovey village of Talkeetna was a bonus. Our room was large enough and comfortable but didn't have blockout blinds at the small window and when it doesn't ever get dark that could be a problem for... More
