“Amazing views and great service”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 1, 2012

We spent three nights at the Denali Overlook Inn and had a great stay. Reserve the Denali View Suite if you can. Rooms were clean and comfortable, breakfast was very nice and our hosts (Ron and Mabel) very welcoming. The best part is the location - lovely wooded setting and a creek below where we saw a moose on the first day. On a clear day amazing views of Mt McKinley. We visited with our two kids (ages 9 and 11) and this inn was very welcoming for kids. We would definitely visit again.

Room Tip: Best views in the Denali View Suite.

We had the pleasure to stay here on our trip to Alaska. Wow, what an amazing place. Mable and Ron are great hosts and went out of their way to FedEx something that we left behind to us at our next stop. All the rooms are very clean as is the whole house. Breakfast in the morning was very tasty also. We would stay here again.

Room Tip: All the rooms have a great view from the windows

Thank you for your positive review. We know what it's like if you leave something behind, especially if it's something you need everyday, so we were more than happy to be able to send it to you as soon as possible even though we didn't have a courier service here.

My family and I loved this inn! We were fortunate that Denali was in full view on our first day, that a moose was drinking from the creek below the inn, and that a fox visited the yard each morning. We also enjoyed talking with Mabel and Ron, as well as the other guests at the breakfast table. Breakfast, by the way, is fresh, made-to-order, and truly yummy! I would recommend this serene and spectacular inn to couples, retirees, families with older children or children who are very well-behaved (because of the rooms' the close proximity to other guests, infants or high-energy kiddos would probably disturb all of the other guests). We had our 4 and 7-year-old sons with us and they had a great time. We appreciate Ron and Mabel's attentiveness and all of the apparent heart and soul they have invested in this little slice of heaven!

We stayed in the Denali View Suite. The suite has huge windows facing the Alaska Range and Denali. The views from the many windows are awesome. My husband had a great time watching moose out the window. The whole inn is beautiful, very clean and well maintained. The breakfast was delicious and our hosts Ron and Mabel were very friendly. Wish we had a few more days to stay at their beautiful home. The pictures on the website cannot do it justice! Talkeetna is a great stopping off point between Anchorage and Denali. Definitely one of the best places we stayed on our 12 day trip.

The Denali View Suite is one of our best rooms and I'm so glad you enjoyed it. Seeing the fox and the moose were just added attractions. The ultimate view of course was seeing Denali (Mt. McKinley) in all it's glory, words just can't describe it. We love it when we get a positive review and hope we made you feel at home in our home.

Lucky enough to have found this gem. Our room Denali suite, was beyond our expectations with majestic views of Denali mountain range. Great accomodations. Enjoyed everything about it. Great breakfast. Maybel and Ron took great care of us and we sat and chatted at breakfast. Gave us great advice of things to do.

The Inn is a few miles from the center of Talkeetna. There is a train that runs through town that you don't hear at all at the Inn, so the distance may be a good thing. Our room was spotless, comfortable and had an amazing view. The breakfast was delicious.

Room Tip: Our room was great for a family. It had a queen, a twin in a loft (it would not work for young kids...

The Suite you stayed in is great for families, plenty of space, especially for children to be able to run off some of their energy. Having the clawfoot tub separated from the main bathroom allows people to use the bathroom, while someone is taking a shower.

This was one of the coolest places I have evered stayed at. Maybel and Ron really took care of us and made us feel welcome in their home. We stayed in the Denali suite, it had huge windows staring out at the mountain. We woke up to a fox in the front yard and the smells of breakfast cooking downstairs. I highly reccomend it.

Room Tip: The Denali suite is amazing, and sleeps plenty.

I'm so glad you thought it was a great place to stay. Since you didn't give us a very good score, I was wondering what could we have done to make it a better place to stay.
