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

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
