This review is getting a "poor" rating over terrible, only because we love Talkeetna. Our visit was cut short due to unforseen flooding, so we could only stay one night at the Northern Guest House. Our hostess, Paula, was not the friendliest, nor did she have much experience in hospitality. We had a gathering of girls for a bachelorette party, so all rooms were rented out in the B & B. Paula took it upon herself to walk in as she pleased, without knocking. She did not allow us to increase the temperature of the house, and promptly checked the thermostat to make sure we did not touch it- the entire house was FREEZING! She did not respect our privacy, asking questions in the morning about us that would only be known if she was sleeping in close quarters or somewhere in the house, this interrogation made us feel quite uncomfortable. We feel like she was eavesdropping on us throughout the night. To top off our weekend, we woke up to a sight we have never seen before. She was butchering a moose on the front porch, not caring how loud or disgusting the sight was. We had to walk past the massacre to leave in the morning. She did not thank us or even say goodbye, just kept on cutting up meat. This was such a disappointment to pay to rent the entire house and to not be treated as guests. We will never stay at the Northern Guest House again.
