It's beautiful, but huge and out in the middle of nowhere so there's nothing to do that isn't controlled by Princess.

Depends on what you're looking for...if its a hotel in the middle of the hustle bustle of a metropolitan area, this isn't it. However, if your looking for a quiet, serene environment then this might be your place. If your lucky, and the weather cooperates there's a great view of Mt. McKinley. For a diversion, you can take their hourly shuttle to Talkeetna....a historic community south of the hotel.

Happy Travels !!

Quiet and serene it isn't! I never found a place to get away from the hordes of other people except at 4:00 a.m..

It's a nice lodge, but for those seeking to find the "real Alaska"... stay in one of the many rental cabins or B&Bs, hosted by "real" Alaskans. The Talkeetna Chamber of Commerce website has a long list of available lodgings listed under the member directory and they also provide an online Trip Planner.http://www.tripadvisor.com/GoListDetail-i12099-Fly_Fishing_Heaven_Talkeetnas_History.html

Arcticnite - Is the hourly Princess shuttle to Talkeetna complimentary for hotel guests? What times does it operate? How long is the trip?

I believe there is a charge for the shuttle service, but you should check with the hotel.
