“exceptional location...so warm and inviting!!!”
Reviewed June 24, 2014

Great place to stay in Talkeetna. It's a bit of a walk into town, but very doable. Darlene was very eager to give us rides whenever (in a limo...no less). Beautiful views and lots of activities on the property. Very homey with lots of movies to watch and a badmitten court in the yard.

Would definitely stay here again!!

This place is right on the river, and the little cabins are awesome. All the amenities, and no tv, which is nice. Darlene the owner is incredibly gracious, and will drive you o town in her stretch limo! Although I was staying here after climbing Denali, it would be a great place for a family or couple. Hot water, and good water pressure in the shower, kitchenette had a fridge and microwave and coffee maker with complimentary coffee. Next time I'm in Talkeetna, I will try to stay here.

It is rare that your host gives you the coat off her back, but that is exactly what Darlene did! She decided I needed a warmer jacket - so she let me wear hers! I was so grateful! We stayed at Susitna River Lodging during our short stay in Talkeetna. It was absolutely perfect in every way. We stayed in the room on the first floor - so the river was right outside our door. It was very roomy and comfortable. The breakfast was perfect for us: serve yourself breakfast fare! The living room was nicely decorated and a great place to sit and meet other guests. Darlene also picked us up at the train station, which was very helpful! Great place! We hope to return and would highly recommend it!

What more could you want - reasonably private cabins, friendly staff, river setting, views of the Alaskan Range and a minute's drive from downtown Talkeetna. If they refreshed the mattresses and it would be five stars.

Room Tip: We were in cabin #3. This one seemed to have the best mountain view.

Tolerate pets, not welcoming at all. There are gates in place so your pet can't go upstairs. Rather tacky notes to clients left in rooms with heavy penalties for unwashed dishes. Just didn't feel comfortable there. We left early, sacrificing money already paid.

We absolutely loved staying here!!! We had the cabin farthest from the lodge which was so cute and very clean. Beds were very comfortable, kids loved staying in the loft. The view was beautiful and the river was right in front of the cabins down a small path. There was a fox out and about while we were there. The kitchenette is well stocked with kitchen utensils, plates, cups, toaster etc. In the morning there was muffins, bagels, coffee and juice in the main room of the lodge. We sat on the couches inside and there are chairs on the huge front porch of the lodge as well to take in the lovely scenery. Would recommend this place to everyone!!!!!

Room Tip: The cabins are really nice and just a short walk to the main lodge on a pebble path with beautiful s...

My son and I stayed here in late spring during our trip thru Alaska. We were the only occupants of the main lodge and were given free range of the place. The lady we rented our room from was extremely pleasant and welcoming making sure we had everything we needed to make our stay memorable. Our room was very large and had every comfort one could need. There was a single large tv in the main room of the lodge that we watched in the evening when we weren't trying to see the aurora. The lodge is situated in the woods along the Susitna river so there is always something to watch. Its just a very short drive from downtown area but out far enough to ensure your privacy. I'd recommend anyone visiting the Talkeetna area to give this place a try you won't be disappointed.

Room Tip: Our room was upstairs with a view of the river and was one of the furthest from the great room. It...
