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.
