“Loved the local flavor!”
Reviewed July 11, 2013

My husband and I spent two weeks in Alaska with two days in Talkeetna at the Denali Fireside. At first we thought two days would be too much in such a small town, but it turned out to be our favorite! This town and hotel have a lot of local charm with a hippy flair. It started when the lovely hotel manager, Jordan, picked us up from the train depot in a wood-sided Caprice Classic station wagon! She gave us a quick tour around the town on the way to the hotel and included helpful and accurate recommendations for local restaurants. The cabin was brand new with a separate sitting room, bedroom area, bathroom (with tub!), and kitchenette. Very spacious with beautiful light oak flooring and lots of windows. I especially enjoyed the front porch with the glider at 2 A.M. when it was still light out! We utilized the free DVD's from the office and had a quiet night with some local Alaskan Blueberry Merlot (not to be missed). It's a short walk to town (5-7 minutes) to enjoy dining, drinking, shopping, playing, etc. This town has a lot of hidden gems to be explored and enjoyed. The hosts, Jordan and Don, are helpful and accomodating. Fair warning: the mosquitos are plentiful, so bring your Off!

Room Tip: Our cabin faced the street but was still quiet. I think all the cabins looked nice!

Green Features: This cabin was simple but elegant. Don't expect expensive extras, because there aren't any. It was clean and tasteful. Rooms are not serviced on two day stay unless something extra is requested.

The rooms at the Denali Fireside are spacious, neat and clean, but not elaborate. The best thing about our stay was Jordan, the General Manager. Not only was she friendly, but she bubbled over with information about the town and places to go. With her help we enjoyed our Talkeetna experience.

We went up to Alaska on our honeymoon this summer. We spent 2 weeks in quite a few areas. This was our favorite place to stay! The cabin was absolutely beautiful inside and out and extremely clean. Right out our window, was the best view of Denali in town! A very short walk into town was great so see the area. No question, we would suggest Denali Fireside Cabins to anyone. The manager was very friendly and helpful during our 2 day stay.

Loved it. My wife and I stayed for 2 nights and loved the accommodations. Brand new, very clean, comfortable bed. Short walk to town to enjoy local culture and view Denali. Would love to return. Thank you to Jordon and Don, very nice hosts.

Very beautiful inside and out. Bed was very comfortable. Interior area was very spacious, clean, well-furnished and cozy. Front deck with wooden glider was a wonderful extra, on which we sat and viewed Mt. McKinley and sunsets from. The manager was so friendly and helpful. We felt welcome the moment we arrived and felt sad to have to depart. Wonderful place to stay if you are ever in the Talkeetna area!

We enjoyed our night's stay here and thought it well equipped, well decorated and comfortable. The train didn't waken us at 6am as we'd been warned - maybe we were more tired than we thought! The manager (owner?) was welcoming and explained about working the gas fire etc,

Good choice.

Room Tip: The cabin next to the office was great.

Stayed 2 nights to take a McKinley flight with K2 aviation (within walking distance). I agree with the majority that have posted--this is an EXCELLENT place to stay. The details are evident: fridge, m/v, detailed instructions on operating the tv (I am a dunce when it comes to hitting the wrong buttons!), good restaurant suggestions besides the popular and busy Roadhouse.

Our cabin was actually a duplex but we heard NO noise from the guys staying in the unit next door.
