We spent one night here on a trip between Anchorage and Denali. We had an apartment in the main building. The cabins are in a lovely spot by the river, very peaceful. We had a lovely view over the river from our room. Darlene was very helpful, picking us up from the railroad depot and returning us there the next... More

We enjoyed a spacious room with a beautiful river view. The Hostess was very accommodating and provided us with excellent area information. A light continental breakfast was available and was a nice way to begin our day. We visited on a particularly warm day, and the fans provided were adequate to cool the room. While you are here, don't miss... More

We traveled from Seward to Talkeetna and were completely delighted by the accommodations. They are right along the river with stunning views of Mt. McKinley. It was very peaceful and the perfect setting to relax and take in the scenery. I would highly recommend a stay here.

We travelled from Anchorage, Homer to Seward, to Talkeetna, Denali NP and e ndes our trip in Hatcher Pass at the Hatcher Pass B&B. We travelled with our 3 teenagers (14, 13, 13). Lodging was a bit of a challenge in terms of amenities and space in all the locations EXCEPT this place. It was perfect!! Liz (owner) was very... More

Sometimes a bargain is not worth the compromise. When you've already spent a great deal on a luxurious cruise & excursions do you really want to end your vacation on a low note? The cabins are cheaply decorated with no privacy between the upstairs loft & the downstairs bed. I'd say the rooms haven't ever been redecorated. Bathroom door is... More

This was one of my favorite stops in Alaska. The lodge was clean and overlooks a large river, with a sandy bank for kids to play on. We had dinner at one of their screened-in tables and played badminton out on the lawn. It was a very relaxing stop and I loved that there was no TV! We didn't miss... More

Great place to stay in Talkeetna. It's a bit of a walk into town, but very doable. Darlene was very eager to give us rides whenever (in a limo...no less). Beautiful views and lots of activities on the property. Very homey with lots of movies to watch and a badmitten court in the yard. Would definitely stay here again!!

This place is right on the river, and the little cabins are awesome. All the amenities, and no tv, which is nice. Darlene the owner is incredibly gracious, and will drive you o town in her stretch limo! Although I was staying here after climbing Denali, it would be a great place for a family or couple. Hot water, and... More

It is rare that your host gives you the coat off her back, but that is exactly what Darlene did! She decided I needed a warmer jacket - so she let me wear hers! I was so grateful! We stayed at Susitna River Lodging during our short stay in Talkeetna. It was absolutely perfect in every way. We stayed in... More

What more could you want - reasonably private cabins, friendly staff, river setting, views of the Alaskan Range and a minute's drive from downtown Talkeetna. If they refreshed the mattresses and it would be five stars.
