Reviews of the Denali Overlook Inn are overwhelming positive for a good reason. The location and accommodations can’t be beat and the hosts, Ron & Mabel, couldn’t be better.
My wife and I stayed at the Inn July 26th in the Mt. Foraker room on the top floor. Very nice room with great views all around including Mt. McKinley. The floors in that room squeaked a bit and that didn’t bother us but it might have annoyed the guests below. For that reason, we were careful moving around at night and early in the morning. The room was clean and spacious and the bed was comfy. The windows let the daylight in but they also had blackout blinds and covers to keep the long Alaskan summer daylight out while you slept. A little light would leak in from the edges of the blinds and I thought that would bother me but I kept my eyes closed when I stirred during the night and I fell right back into a restful sleep. No problem. The Inn has a dumbwaiter that makes it easy to get your luggage from the ground floor to the upper levels--very thoughtful.
Breakfast, made to order by our hosts, was delicious and filling and the breakfast area/great room was a wonderful space to dine.
The Inn is a handsome rustic building with a modern interior and a great lawn for sitting and enjoying the forest and mountain views from outside. Word of warning…Alaskan mosquitos are not to be trifled with. I live in Houston and we have our share of the annoying creatures but they grow them big and tough up north. The Inn has devices on the lawn to deal with the pests but we didn’t test how effective these measures were. We spent time out on the lawn in the morning and the afternoon with no problem but around 7pm the bugs got hungry and we didn’t feel like providing their dinner and went inside.
This place has what you want from a B&B and comes with a great view and great hosts as a bonus. I highly recommend the Denali Overlook Inn.
