It's been about a year-and-a-half since our last visit to the Talkeetna Denali View Lodge and Cabins. As with the first trip, we loved the establishment and the owners, Tom and Ranae. They are warm, excellent hosts and they cook a deliciously satisfying breakfast spread. We stayed in the Denali room again, a large, cozy room with a spectacular view. Sadly, the mountains were clouded in although the fall colors were stunning.
The lodge is located just ten minutes outside the town of Talkeetna. Tom is installing an outside hot tub this winter which will make post skiing restful and fun. The view from the north and west facing deck is magnificent. On a clear day Denali takes your breath away as do the other mountains in the Alaska Range. One can sit by the outdoor fire pit with a cup of wonderful coffee and contemplate the serenity and wildness of Alaska spreading out below. On a clear, moonless night, the aurora dances overhead as you soak in the new hot tub. Speaking of skiing, there are many kilometers of groomed trails throughout the area as well as miles of snow machine designated trails.
We will go again this winter for at least one cross country ski trip and hopefully the Oosik Classic Ski Race and Tour in March 2014. My wife and I highly recommend the Talkeetna Denali View Lodge and Cabins for a fabulous, delightful destination.
