Thank you so much to Darlene, Trisha, and the team at Susitna River Lodge! An impromptu visit by this Aussie in search of the Aurora Borealis couldn't have been more easy to organise, and more of a pleasure to experience. Highly recommended. A beautiful room, a fantastic view, perfect cleanliness and condition, combined with the friendliness you would normally find... More

We had two couples stay in one of the suites for a night, and we were very impressed. Extremely clean, the lodge is warm and welcoming and the room itself was fantastic - great views of the Susitna River, comfortable and homey. Overall, we had a great time at the lodge.

The staff is wonderful and attentive. They had great recommendations for the area. The rooms are beautiful, comfortable and clean with an awesome view of the river. There are cabins, rooms and a bunkhouse. I highly recommend staying here.

Hello Molly! So glad you enjoyed your stay with us. I'd like to state, however, to those future readers of your wonderful review, we do not have a bunkhouse. 4 cabins and 4 lodge suites. No bunkhouse. Just saying. More

Pretty nice place. Needed a place to stay at the last minute and luckily for us it was late in the season and they had availability. We were able to stay in the main lodge, which was very clean, very "Alaskan" feeling, and has a great location right on the Susitna River. I would highly recommend it...the owner was helpful...

The room was extremely clean and comfortable. It was more like a little suite with a loft. We had a kitchenette with coffee and a refrigerator and microwave. This was a blessing since we had been traveling for over a week at that point and were tired of eating at restaurants. We ate our breakfast there, but the night before... More

We took an overnight stop here - stopping on our way from Anchorage for some kayaking in Byers Lake before heading to Denali NP. The lodge has a great location, right by the Susitna river. The garden is beautiful and immaculate with plenty of space to relax. Our room was right by the reception. It was very clean, had a... More

So glad you liked your 1 night stay with us! Just a quick mention, all our rooms and cabins face the river. Oh, and we do not offer continental breakfast mostly due to the excellent local resources just 1/2 mile or less away. (e.g. Roadhouse, Latitude 62 & Swiss Alaska Inn) ~ Darlene More

Lovely cabin with mezzanine floor for two extra beds. Well located by the river, with grassed area for seating. View of the Denali Range. Quiet, well furnished, no breakfast so on the expensive side. About a mile from Talkeetna for food and river walk.

The room was very spacious and had everything we needed. It was very clean and comfortable. The check in was quick and easy, the lobby was very welcoming too. This... More

Susitna River Lodging is a little piece of paradise in the wilderness. There are independent cottages as well as accommodations in the main house. We were in a second floor suite with kitchenette and loft. Our room absolutely charming--including an electric potbelly-style stove in an alcove overlooking the river. The service was outstanding. We arrived via bus, and not only... More

Howard & Darlene Hunter know how to operate a first class accomodation in paradise. From their many years in Alaska, they're a wealth of knowledge for not only the Talkeetna area, but for all of the northland. It was fun staying up past our bedtime to converse and hear of their many exploits in the Great Land. From the fresh... More
