We stayed at the Talkeetna Lakeside Cabins during the 1st week of July for 3 days and loved it. I was a little wary at first, since the last review was written a year ago and there were only a handful of them. Wayne recommended the Hilltop cabin as we were travelling with our infant and we couldn't be any happier. Although the location is nicer for the other two cabins as they are closer to the lake, the Hilltop is the newer cabin with all amenities and right next to the parking lot. The cabins are well appointed with everything you ever really need on a vacation. These are some of the amenities you get in Hilltop - 2 "very" comfortable queen size beds, 2 recliners, outside deck with BBQ grill and patio table, fully equipped kitchen with electric range, small refrigerator, microwave etc. Bathroom is spotless and has a regular toilet unlike the other cabins. Every window is covered well with blinds/shades and kept the light away at night for a great sleep. There is free wireless internet (WiFi) as well! There are tons of mosquitoes outside and they seem to be a common theme in Alaska outdoors. A bug spray was provided for the room and it wasn't a problem indoors at all. A small office room is attached to the Hilltop cabin, but there is hardly anyone there so its not a problem. However, Wayne or Holly is just a phone call away if you need anything (yes, there is cell phone coverage + data in this area). Talkeetna town is about 12 miles or 15-20 minute drive where you can find lots of restaurants and tour options. There is also a gas station (open 24 hrs) and a Subway restaurant if you go the other way to the George Parks highway (only a 5 minute drive).
The check-in time is 4-7P and check-out 11A, but they're always flexible and will work with you to suit your schedule. We highly recommend the Talkeetna Lakeside Cabins if you're looking for a stay in this area, probably better than staying in the town and at the time of writing is reasonably priced at $150 a night!
