“Perfect for those who would rather have privacy and not be in a hotel or in town.”
Reviewed July 29, 2017 for a stay in July 2017

The location and amenities were great, as was conversation with the owners and others who came to visit. The beautiful gardens and view were awesome. Unfortunately, we didn't spend a lot of time there as we were trying to get as much of Alaska into our trip as we could in a week's time. The lack of a TV was a good thing as it made us do other things, which is why we went to Alaska in the first place. Would highly recommend and would certainly stay there again if we ever get back to the area.

“Comfort in the Wilderness”
Reviewed July 2, 2017 for a stay in June 2017

The Talkeetna Basecamp Wilderness Cabin is definitely a diamond in the rough! Pete and Martha have done a fantastic job of creating such a cozy and comfortable base for our time in Talkeetna and Denali. You wouldn't know you were off the grid if you didn't know beforehand and if you missed the solar panels while exploring the beautiful grounds. The fact that the hosts are both retired National Park Rangers doesn't hurt when you are seeking information. I very highly recommend Basecamp Wilderness Cabin.

“Shockingly fantastic accomodations”

Pete asked us several times if there was anything we could think of to improve our stay, and we just couldn't. The cabin is cozy but not tiny, well-furnished and the kitchen well-equipped. The shower is fantastic. The woodburning stove is easy and romantic. The views are amazing. We didn't try the sauna, but we did sit on top of the sauna building and take photos of Denali.

We booked this cabin because it was a good price for a stay in Talkeetna while headed to Denali, and came to regret only having it for one night. We'll be back next year for a longer stay.

“Beautiful cabin in an idyllic setting.”
Reviewed July 4, 2016 for a stay in June 2016

Our host was attentive and helpful but respectful of our privacy.
The cabin is newly constructed, very clean, fully stocked with everything you need to cook your own meals. It was a bit tight with four but that was a minor issue. It is beautifully situated with views of the valley and the Alaskan range. A 20 minute drive to Talkeetna or the nearest grocery store. The right kind of remoteness for us. Adding to the charm and attractiveness was the off-the-grid life style (solar panels, well water, composting). Pete and Martha also generously shared their garden vegetables.
Above expectations.

“Breathtaking in every way”
Reviewed June 18, 2016 for a stay in June 2016

Camp One was by far the BEST location, accommodation, and most importantly hosts of our 14 day excursion into Alaska. Every detail imaginable was thought out in this beautiful, secluded, private, and breathtakingly amazing cabin. From the view, to the bed, to the smallest of comforts, Peter and Martha literally thought of it all. Fresh local wildflowers greeted us and the kitchen offered us every option to cook, including spices! Most important to us was a feeling like we were staying in a home or place we'd never want to leave, and Camp One (the cabin) was just that. While we arrived early, our host was able to chat with us and provide some wonderful suggestions to the local area. One such recommendation literally was the pinnacle of our trip as we landed on Ruth Glacier through a flight seeing tour, during an unusually clear day with views of Mt. Denali summit.
The sauna and the rooftop deck provided an excellent area to enjoy the view, the warm summer air, and read a nice book. After a long day, the shower was instantly hot, and the extremely comfortable queen mattress was inviting. The living area is more than spacious for 2 couples or 4 people total if you use the Sofa Sleeper. While we didn't try it, we read many guest book entries saying it was comfy.
Being off-grid, we respected the minimal use of resources, even though every option was available and not restricted in anyway. Lots of hot water, plenty of light and electricity and an absolutely stunning view from the bedroom.
With the Alaska summer sun high in the sky through the late hours, the blackout shades in the bedroom made it easy to drift to sleep and we never heard a sound other than the local birds.
You'll probably find the most exceptional part of a stay here to be your interaction with your hosts. Peter and Martha made us feel like family in a very private and secluded setting, inspiring us to consider such a location ourselves. This experience alone would make us want to come back and visit Camp One, Peter and Martha, their two German Shepards Gunner and Odin, and Alaska. Our only regret was not staying that second night...We'll be back it's just a question of how soon.

The whole experience was outstanding. The only thing that I can complain about was the mosquito's which were horrible. Our hosts were great in every way. Couldn't have asked for nicer accommodations.
