Loved the quilts, decor, kitchen sink AND bathroom sink, fridge, fluffy towels, comfy beds (even the pullout couch was way above par) and the personalized attention we received while staying here in July. Alisha helped make arrangements for our activities and would write things of interest to see on our map. She really could not have been more helpful to us. It truly is a beautiful place to stay. We were able to walk into town every day and come back to a quiet, homey retreat. I would recommend this lodge to anyone ---there were no negatives (and my family of five is kind of fussy).

Room Tip: We stayed in units 2 and 3 and could see the mountain from our front porch (which had a glider bench...

A rainy, depressing day here when we arrived, but Denali Fireside staff came to pick us up at the big lodge where our bus from Anchorage stopped, since they were a mile plus down the hill.

Then we stepped into our cabin with a cute porch and flowers all around!
Spanking clean, shiny wood floors, beautiful Alaskan quilts on the beds, crossed snowshoes, moose prints on the walls, with table, chairs by the window and gas stove fireplace. Add in the sink, frig and spotless shower, we suddenly did not care that it was raining!
What a cozy, charming place to spend our day in Talkeetna!

Then later, even though we had checked out, the owners of Denali Fireside Cabins took us and our luggage back up the hill to the big lodge to catch out late bus! (I donated $10 to the"kitty" - the owner was pleased to receive it)

We would take this place over any other big lodge/hotel in the area - so close to town and all restaurants/ shops - even though all our plans went out the window with weather, we had a wonderful stay here in the rain!

We will come back!!

My 2nd 5 star review of Denali Fireside.

Beautiful, spacious suite that accommodated 4 adults for a 3 night stay over 4th of July.

Top quality linens, very clean bathroom, very nice mini fridge. 2 sinks.

The owners are very particular in making all guests have a great experience. No smoking in cabins, shoes outside, no coolers or fish cleaning in the cabins. These small details keep the rooms spotless.

Manager was very nice/helpful. VERY QUIET yet within a 3 minute walk to downtown Talkeetna.

Will stay again. Thank you, Denali Fireside!

Our family of five just left the cabin and we were super happy. There was room for all of us to sleep, and a beautiful cabin in woods. You are right next to a stream and have your own spot for a fire outside. Very cozy and off the main road a bit. Made day trip to Denali from here - was a bit long but doable. Great town to stay in.

My wife and I and two other senior couples stayed at Denali Fireside for 2 nights last month. Within walking distance of downtown Talkeetna, our three cabins were large and immaculate, each with an excellent heating system, kitchenette and very nice bathroom. The cabins looked brand new to us--beautiful hardwood floors and lovely furniture and appointments. The beds were very comfortable. Alisha, the manager, was friendly and helpful throughout our stay; she gave us a tour of the facility when we checked in, answering our questions and gave us perfect restaurant and activity recommendations. A delightful lady. The owners, Don and Mavis were also very friendly and helpful, with Don loaning us a can of bear spray for our hike. We never used it, but it was nice to have. Our visit to the lovely town of Talkeetna was enhanced by our staying there.

I kind of hate to share this one. If it becomes too popular I won't be able to get back in and the rate will go up.
It is a great place. Super clean room, very big room with newer furnishings, refrig, coffee maker, big TV. Camp fire out back, and a swing on the front porch. I forgot the general managers name, but she is a super nice lady and gave us some good dinner and breakfast recommendations. I paid $177 a night. There is a train right behind the cabins and it blows the whistle around 11 pm, but anywhere you stay in town you will here the train.

Room Tip: Bring something to black out the windows in the summer. like tin foil

We stayed in an individual cabin for two nights in mid June of 2014. Check in was efficient and included a brief tour of our cabin to explain the amenities. Friendly staff. Our cabin was clean and spacious. Location was an easy walk to restaurants and attractions in town. Bed was comfortable. Gas fireplace was a nice touch - if you needed warmth. Kitchenette was sufficient for our needs. We were happy with our stay and would definitely stay here on our next visit to Talkeetna.
