We stayed at Paula's guest house in August. Paula was great to deal with: quick to respond to emails, easy to work with on our late arrival and helpful with suggestions. We rented the two rooms upstairs. Wouldn't recommend schlepping a big suitcase up the spiral stairs, so we just took what we needed up, left our suitcases under the... More

My husband and I had a most enjoyable stay for 2 nights at the Northern Guest House at Talkeetna in September 2013 in room 2 at the top of the spiral stairs. We got the recommendation from Trip Advisor and rang Paula direct. She returned phone calls and emails promptly and made our booking experience smooth and painless. We were... More

We stayed upstairs in room 2 from Sept 17-19, 2013. The owner, Paula was a great host. She offered us suggestions for sightseeing and answered our questions about Talkeetna. She made moose stew dinner for the 6 guests the second night we were there. The room was clean and comfortable. There was plenty of room for the 2 of us.... More

We stayed for one night only, very affordable. It's not a B&B so no breakfast will be provided. Kitchen is shared among guests. We had the downstairs room. It's not a suite so bathroom is across the living room. You do have to walk in front of other guests in the morning to use bathroom. Awkward. No WiFi and cable... More

I was in town after traveling from Denali and decided to drive around to find a place to stay. After calling several places that cost over $100 to stay for one night and discouraged, I passed by the Northern guesthouse. I dialed the number and talked to Paula, the owner. The room was very affordable and I was told I... More

We had the pleasure of staying at the Northern Guest House Sept 17-19. We are a middle-aged couple traveling with two teenage boys. We had rooms 1 and 3 and found them to be charming and very comfortable. The entire great room encompassing the kitchen, living room, dining room and ping pong area is larger than the pics. The entire... More

Three couples, two nights. We had a great time enjoying the activities and food in Talkeetna. The guest house is very conveniently located. We walked almost everywhere. The Northern Guest House was very comfortable. It had games, books, ping-pong, movies, bikes, and plenty of room for us all. Kitchen was nice. We would stay there again!

We stayed at the Northern Guest House for a night on our way back from Denali to Anchorage. We'd been in touch with Paula ahead of time, and it was easy to coordinate with her over phone or email. She accommodated our late arrival, and made sure our check-in could be as easy as possible. We had the bedroom on... More

I had a very comfortable stay at Northern Guest House and recommend it highly. My host, Paula, was helpful, available, and friendly. The location is quiet (I heard the train, of course, but for me this is part of Talkeetna's charm) but close enough to town to be convenient. There is a kitchen if you need one, and though I...

The Northern Guest House is a great location for activities in and near Talkeetna. My 2-night stay was pleasant. Paula was a friendly, inviting host. Rooms are a great rate. The views of Denali are spectacular. I recommend the Wildflower Café for dinner. I had 2 wonderful fish (salmon & halibut) specials. Although, at Northern Guest House, you have access... More
