We stopped in for a few nights in Talkeetna in September as we made our way south from Fairbanks to Homer and Seward. The first thing we loved about the Northern Guest House was the great location - it was an easy walk from the train station with all our luggage, and couldn't have been more convenient to town as...

We booked it for a retreat and found the place uncomfortable and inconvenient. No Internet access. Chairs were hard, sofas were too broken down. Double or single beds only made it hard to provide sleeping room for everyone although we'd planned for some folks to bring sleeping bags and air mattresses. Wouldn't recommend it for large groups.

I traveled to Talkeetna in early June 2014 with my adult sons and arrived with no lodging reserved. On a suggestion from a local we chose the Northern Guest House, met Paula and immediately felt at home. We were able to get a spacious clean room with 3 beds, a spotless bathroom, tons of towels, pillows and blankets. All beds... More

Our stay here was absolutely wonderful and very comfy! The place is very tidy, clean and feels like home. Our experience was, the owner goes out of her way to ensure her guests are comfortable and welcomed. Yes, even though she's obviously very busy with other work and life obligations. She even gave me some smoked salmon!! Now how personal... More

We (me, my wife and two of our close friends) stayed at NGH for one night at the beginning of August and had a great time. The location was good (close to everything in downtown Talkeetna) and Paula provided detailed instructions on how to get here. We booked the two bedrooms on the second floor and they were all very...

We were a family of six trying to see and do too much in one week. We stayed here one night enroute to Denali. It is really worth more than a one night stay! Paula made us feel very welcome. She gave us advice and directions for dining. Talkeetna is a fun little town, where one can really relax. It... More

2 night stay in Sept 2014. Paula (the owner) was friendly and hospitable but maintained our personal space. Very clean, well set up. Walking distance to the village. Kitchen equipped for simple meals (but needs a toaster). Each of the rooms has it's own bathroom. A great choice.

I stayed at Northern Guesthouse in June of this year with my extended family. We found the the guesthouse to be ideal for our group. The house is spacious, clean, has cooking facilities and is close to town. Paula is very helpful and the fact that the house was regularly cleaned meant that there was no housework [well almost]. I... More

We went to Talkeetna to visit our daughter and had hoped to stay at the lodge she is working at. If we had, we would have missed out on this gem. Rooms are clean and comfy (and VERY reasonably priced), owner Paula is awesome! We thoroughly enjoyed our stay there and would do it again in a heartbeat!
