Talkeetna is a tiny (and I mean tiny!) town and Chinook Cabins are a wonderful accommodation option for anyone stopping by the town for a night or two. Jane met me at the train station and I'm so grateful given it was raining hard and I had planned to walk to the cabins with my luggage! She drove me around... More

Jane was kind enough to pick the four of us (2 couples) up at the train station, she was pleasant but not what I would consider friendly as we introduced ourselves and she said don't worry I won't remember your names. We stayed in the Denali cabin, it was fairly clean, a little outdated, and not really set up for... More

We spent two days there during our recent trip. Jane picked us up at the train station and gave us a tour of the tiny town. She helped fix some screwed up tour arrangements. Cabin is small, but spotless and well-appointed with modern bathroom, small kitchen, air conditioning. Nice location

Jane the proprietor is friendly like all folks from Alaska and will make you feel at home but does not intrude on your privacy. She runs a very clean place with everything needed for a comfortable stay, including the coffee. A great location where walking to all th bars and restaurants are within 5 minutes and the nights are quiet... More

We were in Talkeetna for the Bachelor Auction Weekend. Great location - walking distance to activities, yet far enough away from all night partiers. We stayed in the Foraker. Very nice! Comfortable & roomy for the 3 of us. Easily could have had a few more.. Queen downstairs & 4 singles upstairs. Beds were very comfortable. Combines the rustic cabin... More

Have stayed in the cabins at Keats 4 tines over the years. Can easily sleep 4 one down , and 3 upstairs. Has wi-fi, cable, refrigerator etc. not a lot to do in Talkeetna, but a nice location to stay if you find yourself there . It's a cabin, but a very nice one with amenities

Our fly-in for Denali expedition got delayed due to bad weather so we booked a couple cabins since they were adjacent to AMS, our guide service HQ. I had my own stand alone cabin, with two beds, a kitchenette, and bathroom. It was the same price as Denali Fireside Cabin but it fell WAY short: much smaller, more tired and... More

We stayed at Chinook Wind for three nights while we were exploring Denali National Park. We stayed in the Hunter cabin, one of the two-story cabins. The cabin was very nice! The kitchenette had a fridge, microwave, and hot plate, as well as pots, pans, and silverware. The beds were very clean and comfortable, and the cabin itself was nice... More

We had a large group and wanted to camp but our parents are elderly so we put them up in one of the cabins. When we checked them in and took a look at the cabin we were so jealous! it was so nice and clean. Very close to the campgrounds and town. It was perfect and our parents felt... More

Having decided to leave Denali a day early (to split up the drive back to Anchorage) we were very grateful that Chinook Wind could accommodate us for one night on short notice. The establishment is just a short walk from "downtown." Our cabin (named Denali) was closed up tightly and smelled strongly of bacon upon our afternoon arrival. I was... More
