Talkeetna Roadhouse

Certificate of Excellence
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.

I came up with a coworker and our wives to Anchorage. We decided to visit Talkeetna and the Roadhouse seemed to be an authentic adventure. I had apprehensions about sharing bathrooms but everyone was clean and considerate and this was not a problem. The room...More

The Roadhouse is a "must do" when venturing to Talkeetna. Breakfasts are wonderful- a great way to start off the day. Dinners are great.... and if you are lucky, you can catch some live music while enjoying your meal.

The Roadhouse is this kind of accomodation, where you actually even might hope for bad weather, so that you can enjoy all the great inside facilities! They have games, they have a piano and a guitar, they have books and information flyers, maps etc. ......More

Great take-home bakery attached to historic bustling restaurant with family style tables. Pancakes overflow the plates. Guests range from cruise ship customers to exhausted hikers to Anchorage teachers on a quick day-cation. Loved it. May it keep going forever!
