“Spotless and convenient to downtown Talkeetna”
Reviewed August 15, 2011

We didn't realize how close we were to "downtown" Talkeetna until we drove into town and realized we should have walked. So we went back to the inn and DID walk the block or so into town. The rooms are large (we saw all of them because a large party had canceled at the last minute and we had our choice of rooms) and spotlessly clean. All of them have fireplaces, a sitting area and comfy beds. The property is on the spur road in and out of Talkeetna but it's little traveled at night and quiet. We had our one and only complete view of Mount Denali from right in front of the inn. No breakfast in included but the owners have a coffee and ice cream store next door and free coffee is included. You wouldn't want to miss breakfast at the Roadhouse, anyway.

Denali Fireside is amazing! The units are kept like new and perfectly appointed, and essentially your own little lodge while you take in all of the amazing places to see in and around Talkeetna. Again, super clean so take off your shoes so you don't track all of the wilderness into your luxury unit! Also, such a reasonable price for what they offer, and Don and Mavis are the best hosts! Next door is the coffee and frozen yogurt cafe, and Don and Mavis will give you the 'heads up' on how to maximize your trip! After trekking around the last frontier, it was wonderful to come back to our own wood burning stove, flat screen with Direct TV, free Wi-fi, and heavenly mattresses. They even have a free library of DVDs to choose from. After hiking through Denali park and a great dinner and brews in Talkeetna, we thought 'Dances with Wolves' was appropriate! I recommend to anyone that has the privilege of staying (at least two days) in Talkeetna! Lastly, Dieter's fishing shop is next to the yogurt cafe and will give you a solid deal with any fishing equipment. Highly recommend spending an afternoon (or two) at Montana Creek. As far as I'm concerned, there's no other place to stay in Talkeetna!

We stayed at the suites for 3 nights. Talkeetna itself is lovely and the hotel is perfectly situated rove close enough to walk down to the main street but without being in the centre of allege busyness.

The room was very large and had plenty of room for us. Don, the owner, was very friendly and very helpful. Any questions we had, he did his best to answer.

Overall, we really enjoyed our stay and would highly recommend staying here!

We stayed in the Denali fireside cabin tucked back into the forest. We absolutely loved it. The cabin was beautiful and perfect for our family of four but It also is big enough to accommodate more. We loved sitting by the river and watching the beavers outside our door and sitting by our campfire talking. The service was great and the owners very friendly. The coffee and ice cream shop next door to the main suites is a perfect and fun addition. We would definitely highly recommend Denali fireside retreat to anyone.

We loved it here! I was a little nervous as we got to Talkeetna because it is pretty rural. However, we pulled in to the Fireside Cabins, and we went to the office to check in with Don. He was manning the latte café so I knew it couldn’t be too bad. He was so funny and nice, I was hoping for the best in the rooms. I was not disappointed! Our cabin was new, modern, clean and spacious. Two queen beds, one in each corner of the "L-shape," a mini fridge, microwave, and coffee maker, a flat screen TV with satellite, and wifi. The bathroom was great, very clean, new and modern with fancy toiletries and a very hot shower! We were a five minute walk from Main Street and I was glad we decided not to stay right on Main Street. It would have been loud, and the buildings looked fairly old. We loved Talkeetna and the Denali Fireside Cabins. You do hear trains once or twice but we had no problem, we were either awake anyway, or slept through it.

Thank you, Don and Mavis! Our stay at Denali Fireside was fabulous. Mavis was extremely helpful in helping us make reservations. She even had our room ready so we could check in early to accommodate our activities. So much to do in Talkeetna! Our cabin was spotless and roomy. The flat-screen TV was nice to have - we didn't watch much, but used it to unwind before going to bed (habit). The town of Talkeetna is charming and it was nice to be within walking distance. Thanks for spoiling us - we'll be back!!
