We stayed at Trapper John's Cabin, which is owned by Talkeetna Roadhouse. It is offsite, about a mile away, and down a dirt road near the airstrip. It is also a short walk from the river. We were very pleased with the cabin - it was absolutely adorable, and had an outhouse (hahaha don't worry, there was also indoor plumbing!)... More

A great example of the early settlement days in this beautiful old cottage. Ground floor room was small but very comfortable and clean. I was concerned about the share bathroom but with 3 separate bathrooms it was not an issue. Bakery/Cafe very busy, food was lovely and all baked on the premises with a great variety to choose from. Tea... More

My first visit to Talkeetna. I found the history of this roadhouse well preserved. The place is very authentic. The rooms are small, crude, but very comfortable, clean and the service is great. The shared bathrooms are clean and complete with tile floors and showers. A great place to experience Talkeetna.

The bakery goods are so yummy. Be sure and try the cookies. The best was the peach thing, not sure what it was called. And the sticky, nutty cinnamon rolls...get there early for those...they sell out fast.

This cabin is a couple of blocks from the main roadhouse. It is next to the town runway. While we heard a handful of planes, that wasn't a problem for sleeping, ad they were done flying around dark (9pm in September). It is a bit rundown looking from the outside, with a corrugated metal roof, and a yard strewn with... More

Upstairs room, cosy, clean bathroom. Owner was wonderful we were picked up at the train station and shown around town, providing us with lots of interesting information about the area. Food was scrumptious, the berry pies a favourite.

We took the early bus into Talkeetna to have breakfast. . The restraunt was filled to capacity, but we got in and found a table for 4. The waitstaff is understaffed for the crowd, the floors uneven, and it was very slow. The food was average, but the raspberry cinnamon roll was heavenly

We stopped at the Talkeetna Roadhouse upon recommendation. The menu was fine, but pretty pricey. I had the Standard breakfast and my companion had the lasagna. The breakfast was underwhelming and pretty plain. The lasagna was heavy on greens and light on cheese. Overall it was a fine experience. We both left stuffed to the brim. The next day I... More

Hello! Thank you for taking the time to review the Roadhouse and describe your experience. There are definitely a lot of moving parts that make up the daily running of this busy place and in the summer our staff swells to nearly 50. I'm sorry your interaction on the phone was less than helpful. Actually, I'm horrified. It is our... More

This place is very charming with family style seating. We sat with a couple travelling through Alaska via RV, two local elders, and local B&B owner. This made for a lot of good stories. I had the standard breakfast which came with coffee, juice, scrambled eggs, potatoes, bacon, and toast for $13.95. The portion of egg and potato was large,... More

The garden cabin was a perfect get-away. It was charming, clean, comfy, warm, and wonderful. I could have stayed for a while! Thank you! It was the perfect distance from Main St. And, it was super nice to have the option of using the Roadhouse showers while staying at a dry cabin. The outhouse was a very pleasant outhouse experience,... More

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
The Roadhouse, built around 1917, is one of the oldest establishments still in operation on Main Street in "Beautiful Downtown Talkeetna." Our kitchen is open to the public and we've become famous for big breakfasts, hearty soups, homebaked breads and genuine frontier hospitality. Our bakery produces all sorts of treats each day such as pies, a variety of cinnamon rolls, cookies, cakes, brownies, and savory pasties. The historic end-of-the-road town of Talkeetna is known today throughout the world as the base for international climbers making their way to climb Denali (Mt. McKinley), North America's tallest peak. Denali and the other peaks of the Alaska Range offer a magnificent backdrop for this picturesque town of around 800 people, located about two and a half hours north of Anchorage and halfway between Anchorage and Denali park entrance both by rail and road. The guest rooms range from private to hostel-style, rustic cabins to the school teacher's apartment located above the Talkeetna Historical Society Museum. Bathrooms are "down the hall" in typical Roadhouse fashion, and even though a bathroom has been added to Trapper John's Cabin, guests can still use its 5-Star outhouse! Breakfast is a separate charge but we provide our guests with coffee/cocoa/tea throughout their stay. ... more   less
