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

I had the best stay ever here. The accommodations were great and the the host was so nice and gracious. Paula really went out of her way to help me as I transitioned from North Pole to Wasilla with pets. I loved it there and I'll stay there every time I'm in there. Ten Stars!!

Great service, clean room, and a wonderful owner. Paula was very nice, accomodating, and the Alaskan smoked salmon was delicious! Thank you Paula for excellent service and support. I will return ! Steven Tucker, MD

I visited the Northern Guest House with a friend on our way to Denali National Park. We spent two days in Talkeetna hiking and taking a plane ride over the park. Paula was extremely welcoming and her home was a wonderful spot to return to after a very busy day. The Guest House is wonderfully close to everything; dining, hiking,... More

Spent the weekend including our dog. Easy walking distance anywhere in town. Great common room with full kitchen, dining room, lounge and even a pink pong table. Next time we will bring a group and all have private bedrooms and bathrooms

We had a great stay at the Northern Guest House! Paula was very friendly and very kind!!! I was able to bring my dog (the only dog friendly place I've found to stay in Talkeetna) and my friend and I built an amazing fire in the gazebo in the backyard last night. Definitely a great stay! I will be back!

We were looking for a place that could accommodate 8 family members and a dog while visiting the Alaskan son from Anchorage over Thanksgiving. The Northern Guest House fit the bill perfectly. The price was right, the guest house was clean and comfortable and had room for all of us. It is an easy walk from the main street, restaurants,... More

My friend & I stayed here and had a great time. Great price. The place was cozy & as advertised on its website. There were restaurants & shops nearby. Talkeetna's adorable, the rivers are beautiful, and the people were friendly. Paula, our host, made us feel right at home, was great to chat it up with, and offered advice for... More
