Great location a couple of blocks away from downtown. The house was clean and Paula was really nice, just a phone call away. We had the place to ourselves (party of 4) which was nice, There are board games, puzzles and a ping-pong table available for guests to use. This is not a typical BnB, it is a house with... More

My wife and I stayed here while traveling from Fairbanks to Anchorage. The accommodations were simple, clean and very convenient to all of Talkeetna. We walked about a mile from the train depot to the guest house and then about two blocks to 'main street' in town, as well as a ten minute walk to the 'airport' for our flight... More

Paula was very helpful during our short stay in Talkeetna. She was very flexible with our schedule. We arrived via train & took a short walk to the guest house. We spent the evening "in town" which is a only a block or two away. Downtown can get crowded so it was nice to be a block off the beaten... More

My mother and I stayed in the upstairs twin room, and it was private & quiet, and very clean & comfortable . We enjoyed walking to several close restaurants, attractions, and even the nearby river. Paula was helpful and flexible about our unusual arrival time, and she introduced us to two beautifully behaved dogs. Great value, and a wonderful atmosphere.... More

Our family of five stayed here in June 2014. We had the two upstairs bedrooms and bathrooms and it worked out perfectly. The rooms were comfortable and the property is a short walk to restaurants and shops. Paula is very welcoming and responsive to all questions. We would definitely stay here again!

I knew it was going to be a little outdated and old but it was the only place available that wasn't overpriced when I booked it. To our surprise, we loved it. We had the upstairs to ourselves. My husband and I in one room and across where my boys in a 3 bed bedroom. We each had our own... More

A friend and I stayed here in June 2014 for a night and had a great experience. Paula was very flexible with our late arrival time and the house itself was very comfortable as well! There were bicycles to use and even a screened in fire pit area in the back of the house. The location was great and very... More

My husband and I stayed at the "Guest House" the end of August 2013. We found the home very inviting and seeming like an old "farm house" home. It was very comfortable and cozy! While not the typical Bed and Breakfast (BYO Breakfast), there was plenty of coffee, tea, and hot chocolate available as well as a kitchenette and dining... More

Yes, this is a guest house, not a B&B, but the location was perfect for us. It's short walk to the restaurants and the river where we were able to see Mt. Foraker, Mt. Hunter, and Mt. McKinley on a clear day!! In addition, Paula was very responsive. She even helped set the bicycles to suit her guests. The room... More

We found this place on line..we are Alaskans who live about an hour south of Talkeetna. The reviews were overrated. We went up for 2days for a wine tasting event. In my attempt to save money and not pay $200 per night at the lodge, we stayed here. Although the hospitality was top notch, most B&Bs offer a continental breakfast.... More
