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.

We stayed in the "Little Cabin Out Back". Tiny but fun! Great for my family of 5 for 1 night. It is quirky and fun just like the rest of town. We had a great breakfast and chatted with the owner/cook. Very friendly and accommodating!

The Talkeetna Roadhouse is such an amazing experience! A very clean, interesting place to stay in Talkeetna. An awesome experience. Such a throwback to my childhood, my great grand parents owned a Roadhouse. So authentic, I can't thank Trisha enough for experience! There is so much to discover at Talkeetna, the Talkeetna Roadhouse is a fantastic starting point.

We had a great stay at the Talkeetna Roadhouse. Trisha was super helpful. Easy check in process, super clean, great breakfast. We enjoyed seeing and hearing stories about all of the history of the Inn. We would love to come back in the winter and just hangout by the fireplace.

We really enjoyed our stay at the Talkeetna Roadhouse. Trisha was helpful and friendly. She cooked us a big beautiful breakfast with her famous sourdough pancakes. She is being extremely cautious and conscientious during Covid. She’s only allowing guests to use the restrooms and laundry facilities. She has dedicated one restroom for each room so that guests don’t have to share. We appreciated all the effort she put in to keeping the roadhouse clean and inviting during this pandemic.

Great historic spot Owner Trisha is sooo helpful And kind and goes way out of the way to help make your stay as best as possible. The food was excellent. The staff was great. One downside is the public restroom but it’s not a big deal. I recommend it!

Wonderful Inn and bakery! So homey and welcoming. Great information from staff! Able to find cross country ski trails that were incredible. The stay was comfortable and relaxing. Can’t beat the fresh baked cinnamon rolls and quiche. The upstairs rooms are quaint, this is an old structure so the walls are quite thin. Enjoyed every moment of my stay.

this family seating style restaurant is one of my favorites... the servers are so fun and talkative. I went alone but never felt lonely because you sit at any available chair.. and my server made me feel very welcome.... I have eaten there about 3 or 4 times love their daily lunch specials and the breakfast and bakery treats are wonderful.. they rent rooms there also so the place is real homey .....

We stayed in the little cabin in the back and had a great weekend in Talkeetna. Went out for Talkeetna beer fest and had an amazing weekend in Talkeetna. Highly recommend staying at the Roadhouse while in Talkeetna.

Talkeetna was the last leg of our Alaska journey and our favorite place to stay in terms of the people and ambience. While the facilities were, in comparison, rustic, that was what we loved. My friends and I had the top floor of the roadhouse, above the popular restaurant. The rooms were comfortable, and decorated like a cozy and well-worn rural family cabin. Those rooms are loud until the restaurant is closed and they share a similarly rustic bathroom with each other as well as the restaurant crowd. That might not be great for some but didn’t bother me at all, and earplugs are thoughtfully provided. What I loved most were the friendly women running the place who got us to and from the nearby train station, and the location in downtown Talkeetna. A very charming and authentically quirky town despite the fact that tons of cruise ship people are bussed in hourly during the day. It’s just a quick walk to quiet birch forests on trails following the Susitna river and at night it’s easy to meet the friendly locals. Loved it.
