“Adequate Accommodations”
Reviewed June 19, 2013

Having decided to leave Denali a day early (to split up the drive back to Anchorage) we were very grateful that Chinook Wind could accommodate us for one night on short notice. The establishment is just a short walk from "downtown." Our cabin (named Denali) was closed up tightly and smelled strongly of bacon upon our afternoon arrival. I was glad I had a scented candle with me! Though everything seemed clean enough, I just didn't feel like any of the linens were "fresh." The cabin was spacious and seemed to have the basics in the kitchen (we didn't cook there); also there was a nice tented barbecue area that we probably would have utilized had our stay been longer. The layout worked well for us and our two adult daughters - Q and single in the bedroom, trundle and futon in the living room. The free WiFi was much appreciated and was strong enough to watch Netflix movies on two separate devices at the same time. In the morning we couldn't find the hair dryer - one was delivered right away when requested. Yes, as noted elsewhere, the trains do run all night and they BLAST their horns each time they pass through - but that is the nature of Talkeetna.

My family and I rented two cabins at Chinook Wind last night. We drove in from Anchorage. We had 4 kids and 4 adults in our group. The owners were so nice and gave us great advice on where to dine, hike and explore. Our favorite part was hanging out at the cabins. The kids played, we sat on the porches and enjoyed the scenery and relaxed. My sister has food allergies and the full kitchens and BBQ area were terrific. We could could cook meals and still feel like we were on vacation. The beds and comforters were hotel quality. Super comfy and everything was very clean. The best of both, hotel amenities in a quaint cabin setting. We would go back in a heartbeat. They even had satellite TV, not that we watched it but it was nice to have the option.

Room Tip: Denali is great for a big group, separate living room, full size kitchen, tons of sleeping space. We...

The cabins were still clean and the staff was still friendly. We stayed here 3 years ago and not much has changed. That is good. Basic accomodations. Good location for exploring Talkeetna. Within walking distance of the airport. Close to the train station and the staff will arrange to pick you up and deliver you to the depot if you are traveling by train.

We were able to book a cabin at the last minute during Labor Day weekend. The woman who helped us was very friendly and made sure we knew exactly where to find them. She also made sure we knew about entertainment in "town" - and we ended up having one of the funnest nights of our lives so far!
We stayed in the Russell cabin (two queen beds) and were very impressed. The cabin seems newly constructed and was very clean and comfortable. There is a kitchenette and full bathroom (no tiny shower stall!). We would have been very comfortable here for an extended stay, but we only had one night.
Bed and Bath linens were high quality. The bed was very comfortable (we only needed one) and the cabin seemed well-insulated. It was chilly out, but we did not need to use the heater. There's a nice porch in the front with comfy chairs, as well as a recliner and dinette inside.
The recliner inside was the only item that seemed "old" and a bit worn, but was clean and very comfortable. The only other "off" thing was the TV that is strangely mounted in the corner over one of the beds. Because of the size of the cabin, space is limited and there are not many choices when it comes to furniture placement. However, I would not have wanted to sleep under that shelf, even though it looked very stable...

Traveled to Alaska and stayed at the Chinook Winds Cabins. Nice facility, good clean rooms, comfortable beds. Located about 2 blocks from downtown. Drawback sufficient hot water but not a lot for a long shower.

We stayed in a two story cabin with our family of five. The beds were very comfortable and our kids loved having their own twin on the second floor. Our cabin was very clean throughout. The kitchenette had all that we needed for making a simple breakfast. Great location for walking to all of the shops in town. Unfortunately, it rained throughout our time in Talkeetna so we especially enjoyed the selection of movies provided for us by the front desk. Jane was very friendly and made our stay quite comfortable.

We stayed at the Chinook winds cabins for a night. It was everything you wanted. We had a comfy cabin with good, soft beds, free WiFi, and good heating/ air conditioning. The beds were big, the view was nice, and the rest of Talkeetna was in walking distance. It was also pretty clean, and the staff was friendly. It was everything in the pictures. This was the best hotel I’ve ever stayed inn (no pun intended)!
