Eye of Denali Inn & Suite
Ranked #15 of 17 Talkeetna B&B and Inns
Reviewed November 21, 2010

We have stayed at the the Eye of Denali a few times now. We love it because it's just like having our own place in Alaska....all to ourselves. We don't have to worry about other guests, we can cook our own food and not have to worry about when places close, or having a late night snack. We can hang out together in the living room...and then everyone has their own bedroom. We like this way more than staying in your typical hotel. And in the summer...hanging down at the river...lounging in the hammock. Really...what more could you ask for?

This place had a great view by the river. It was quite roomy. Two upstairs bedrooms shared a bathroom downstairs. The heater was fuel oil, so that smell was present. The inn was clean, but the kitchen was not spotless. It was rustic but very nice. The inn fit in with the flavor of Talkeetna - outdoorsy.

our group stayed at Eye of Denali for two nites, enjoyed it very much. there were 6 of us, so we were happy to be able to get the entire cabin. It's not the Ritz, but very comfortable. I think for a family of 5, 6 or more, the entire cabin is the way to go.
One suggestion I would make is to trim some of the trees along the river to have a better view of Mt McKinley.

We have used the Eye of Denali 3 times now and will likely come back.
It is conveniently located within walking distance of beautiful downtown Talkeetna. The views are stunning and and we love being able to cook our own food. Lots of space for kids. Reservations are easy and the hosts accomodating.

A beautiful b&b in Alaskan style log cabin. We stayed in the Talkeetna room which is upstairs with private bathroom, the stairs are quite steep which coud be a problem for the older traveller the room was tight with not much head room overall the room was very neat , tidy and clean. Unfortunately we were under the impression that this was a b&b,no bread,milk,tea bags or cereals, only packets of oats and some pancake mix provided. This was very disappointing as we were specificially wanting bed and breakfast.

We booked the room with the private bath for two nights. Our travel agent tried to talk us into booking the suire. I am glad we did not change our minds. The room was clean and the bathroom was large. Much better than the basement suite. We arrived very late and found the check in system very convenient.
It was great to be able to make a full pot of coffee and use regular mugs instead of paper or styrofoam ones in the morning. I did not have a problem cleaning up after.
At first we were disappointedin not seeinm McKinley from the house. However, I must say that after taking a few steps to the picnic table at the river's edge, we were blown away with the view of the mountain peaks in full view. Even the fancy hotel at the top of the hill couldn't top it. We did go there for an afternoon drink.
On the negative - the supplied breakfast was a little weak, but it didn't matter to us because we were on vacation and I didn't want to cook anyway.
