The only thing wrong with this place was that it is in Alaska and far away from me to visit more often! The staff was courteous and warm. The place looked tidy and clean and inviting. The "little touches" were heart warming and comforting. They had an extensive full breakfast list and for the off season were wonderfully priced! We had a view overlooking the entire mountain rage. Though it was only my husband and myself, we could have easily brought our two children, stayed in the same room and had as much fun and been as comfortable. Thank you Mabel and Ron!

To start off with, our stay at the Inn will be remembered for a lifetime. Our daughter and at the time, our future son-in-law, both living in Anchorage decided a few months ago to get married 9 March 2013 in the local Catholic Church in Talkeetna, AK . Both of them recommended that the Bride’s and Groom’s parents and other family members stay at the Inn. …. We did for 3 days and it was outstanding. …
What made it outstanding was not the great rooms, dining area, fantastic views, any Inn can have those qualities but it was the hospitality of both the managers, Ron and Mabel. Both became a part of both our families during our stay, so much so we invited Ron and Mabel to the wedding and reception. They made our stay very pleasurable and assisted with providing the comfortable surroundings in getting our daughter prepared for her “big day” ….. so not only is this a review of Denali Overlook Inn, but also a warm thank you to both Ron and Mabel for being a part of the memories of all of us during this joyous marriage. The Taylor Family.

Thanks so much for this great review!!! We were the ones who enjoyed both families, you guys made us feel as though we were a part of the wedding party. We had so much fun seeing all the family and friends perform at the hanger. We also enjoyed the music & singing by the bride and groom the first night you stayed. We hope you will come back and visit us again when you come back to Alaska.

A wonderful bed-and-breakfast with a beautiful, panoramic view of Denali National Park just 5 miles from downtown Talkeetna. The rooms were very nice and clean. A made-to-order breakfast is served at your leisure. Peaceful, quiet, a perfect place to relax and unwind after a day of seeing Alaska!

Room Tip: Mt. Foraker is a nice room, others as well.

This is a beautiful bnb! The interior is charming. The attending help was very friendly and helpful.

the location is out of town a few miles. I think that is why this BnB is so wonderful. If the night is clear you have the chance of experiencing the aurora borealis. The views from the hotel are amazing!!

. I will definitely stay here again. I look forward to my next visit .

Thank you for your review. We hope you had a comfortable stay. We do have a great view, even if it's cloudy, or if the mountains are out, it's an awesome view. It is a little out of town, but it's really quiet.

My wife and I stayed here during our holiday of Alaska in Feb / March 2013.

After reading all of the positive reviews were were a little disappointed with this accommodation.

The positives first, the bedroom was lovely with incredible views over to Mount Denali and the rest of the house was also very nice. I think that you would struggle to find a better view from any hotel / b&b room in Alaska.

Now the negatives, we were surprised to find out how far from Talkeetna village this b&b actually is. We drive into the village and clocked just a little over 5 miles. This is obviously too far to walk at night in pitch black Alaska. There is a taxi service available but you are talking $15-20 each way. Considering the b&b doesn't serve food, you will either have to drive or take the cab. If you want to try some of Talkeetna's lovely local brewery ales then you will be forking out for a taxi.

My wife and I also found the atmosphere a little uncomfortable at the breakfast table with both hosts sat present but not eating and not talking very much. It is hard to put into words but it felt somewhat awkward and we are pretty sociable and chatty people.

We are sorry you were disappointed with your stay at the Denali Overlook Inn.

Our website states we are 5 miles from town, so when guests reserve a room and ask us how far we are from downtown Talkeetna, we tell them we are 5 miles from there. If you had asked and said this was a concern then we could have suggested a number of good places closer in town. We appreciate that you didn't want to drink & drive, but things are more expensive in semi-remote areas of Alaska

We don't eat breakfast with our guest because we feel we are there to serve and feel it would be more awkward to be eating and have to keep getting up to serve coffee, clear plates or get additional items our guest may want. We think our guests would not feel comfortable interrupting our meal to do these things.

After we have served our guests we sit down with our coffee or tea and listen to what is being said, and since there were other guests you were talking to, we just enjoyed listening to what you were talking about.

We're very sorry if you felt uncomfortable or awkward, because we are chatty people too. We love to hear all about our guests, where they're from; what they do there; when did they get to Alaska, and what all they're planning on doing while here.

Mabel, who is the chattier; had just had major foot surgery 3 days before you arrived and was a little quieter than usual due to the pain medication.

My girlfriend and I were road tripping through Alaska in the winter, and decided to stay in Talkeetna for two nights. Staying here was definitely the best choice we could have ever made. Ron and Mable are FANTASTIC hosts; very friendly and willing to help answer any and all questions you may have. We got there without much thought of what we were going to do once we arrived, and they wound up lending us some snow shoes and finding the perfect nearby trail to walk around. The breakfast is exemplary and incredibly filling. And the lodge itself is simply stunning. It's large, and the views are breathtaking. We even wound up watching a moose hang around outside the lodge for half an hour. I could not recommend this place highly enough.

Also, Talkeetna in general is a really quaint little town, and a lot of fun.
