To reiterate what others have said, this is a small three-room guest house that is a great place to stay in Talkeetna. Very affordably priced. There are three rooms available with their own (unshared) bathrooms across the hall. Also a living room, a kitchen to use, a dining room, and an outdoor space to chat. Paula, the owner, made us...

This place is a hidden gem. Paula has made this place an oasis from home. She meet us at check in and made us feel right at home. She greeted our dogs like us which made us feel great. I read an earlier review that said they did not want to do a review because they were afraid this gem...

Paula was absolutely amazing! We like to travel with both our cat and dog and she was able to accommodate us last minute. The room was nice and spacious, just minutes from downtown. My husband and I were able to walk just 5 min to get to restaurants! Highly recommend this place especially if you're looking for a cozy place...

We stayed at Northern Guest House after we were turned away from our original hotel because we had a dog. What a blessing! Paula was so amazing and truly made us (and our dog) feel right at home. The rooms were very clean and after our stay we hated to leave. There is a full kitchen with all the amenities...

This is the best deal you'll find in Talkeetna. Only a couple blocks from main street, close to everything, but quiet & cozy. This guest house feels like home. The price is hard to beat, and Paula is a wonderful, welcoming host. She accommodated us last minute and made us feel at home. We shared the home with others but...

Staying here was like visiting a favorite relative. Paula went out of her way to make sure my stay was super. Her place is clean, cozy, close to restaurants and stores, had an equipped kitchen, and best of all I had my dog along and she was made to feel welcome too. I liked it so well I am going...

A group of friends and I stayed there in the winter and found Paula very accommodating. The place was cozy and clean. Each room has their own bathroom. Close to town. It was a good place to stay and very affordable.

The rooms were quite comfortable. We used the two upstairs rooms, and while the rooms did not have baths within them, there are as many bathrooms upstairs as there are rooms, so that wasn't a problem. It's on a quiet street with an easy walk to the restaurants or the river. The rates are a lot cheaper than places close...
