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

Paula made sure our three day stay at the NGH was without issues. The rooms were sufficient for the two of us and the full kitchen helped us make breakfast in the morning, when we chose to eat in. I would definitely recommend this guesthouse to anyone who is looking for a decent place at a reasonable rate, in the... More

I booked a room for 2 nights, one week before my stay. When I was on the way to the Guest House, there was a large wildfire and the road was blocked. I called the number that the owner had given me and told her that it would not be possible to honor my reservation. Even though it was late... More

STAY HERE! DO NOT THINK ABOUT IT, JUST DO IT...you will not regret your decision. This is a PERFECT place to stay in Talkeetna, ALASKA! The rates are Great for summer, and Paula is the best hostess. There is a full kitchen and a ping pong table in the public area. 'Town' is only 2 blocks away with plenty of... More
