Staying at the historical roadhouse any time of year is a treat. The food is wonderful; the baked goods are exceptional and the soups and breakfasts are tasty in the family style seating (eating in a common area on a long table with everyone). I enjoy a winter's night when it is sub zero outside and just kicking back with...

This delightful cabin, built by union carpenters from the regional training center, offers a lovely and quaint get-away. The central bed and lighting make it perfect for relaxing in the winter's cold. We are used to living in dry cabins and this suited us perfectly. The cabin was exceptionally clean and well lit. Hot showers in the Roadhouse provided that...

Thanks so much for the great words about the Garden Cabin! We just finished stringing twinkly lights out to the outhouse and will be doing some other winterization projects tomorrow for a more cozy floor! Perfect timing as we just got over 4 inches of fresh snow. Look forward to having you back!

What a fantastic place to stop in for a meal or coffee. I had the most delicious quiche I have ever had. Wonderful welcoming space. You feel like you are walking into someone's homes. The staff is very friendly. We will be back tomorrow for breakfast.

The weather was not ideal for our winter weekend visit but the Roadhouse provided a comfortable warm place to stay, a great main building to hide out in when it rained with a fire and puzzles and games, a fantastic restaurant, and extremely helpful staff that were willing to drive us or do anything for us when asked. We would...

We stayed in the old school house, museum. Cozy, clean, roomy and private. Easy walking distance to everything. An apartments above the museum well appointed without glamour or pretension. I hope to come back.

This is a true roadhouse in all meanings of the word. The hospitality is beyond compare; as an example of thoughtfulness, they even have hair dryers in one public bathroom that includes a shower. Guests can get coffee and tea at all hours, including when the roadhouse is closed (you get a key to the building). We stayed above the...

We (me, my son and his girlfriend) stayed in a room above the Roadhouse restaurant with a shared bathroom. Having never been to Alaska before and only seeing Roadhouses in the movies, I was picturing pretty dark and probably dingy. The price was great so I was just hoping it was clean. We were only staying one night to go...

We stayed at Trapper John's Cabin, which is owned by Talkeetna Roadhouse. It is offsite, about a mile away, and down a dirt road near the airstrip. It is also a short walk from the river. We were very pleased with the cabin - it was absolutely adorable, and had an outhouse (hahaha don't worry, there was also indoor plumbing!)...

A great example of the early settlement days in this beautiful old cottage. Ground floor room was small but very comfortable and clean. I was concerned about the share bathroom but with 3 separate bathrooms it was not an issue. Bakery/Cafe very busy, food was lovely and all baked on the premises with a great variety to choose from.

My first visit to Talkeetna. I found the history of this roadhouse well preserved. The place is very authentic. The rooms are small, crude, but very comfortable, clean and the service is great. The shared bathrooms are clean and complete with tile floors and showers. A great place to experience Talkeetna.

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
The Roadhouse, built around 1917, is one of the oldest establishments still in operation on Main Street in "Beautiful Downtown Talkeetna." Our kitchen is open to the public and we've become famous for big breakfasts, hearty soups, homebaked breads and genuine frontier hospitality. Our bakery produces all sorts of treats each day such as pies, a variety of cinnamon rolls, cookies, cakes, brownies, and savory pasties. The historic end-of-the-road town of Talkeetna is known today throughout the world as the base for international climbers making their way to climb Denali (Mt. McKinley), North America's tallest peak. Denali and the other peaks of the Alaska Range offer a magnificent backdrop for this picturesque town of around 800 people, located about two and a half hours north of Anchorage and halfway between Anchorage and Denali park entrance both by rail and road. The guest rooms range from private to hostel-style, rustic cabins to the school teacher's apartment located above the Talkeetna Historical Society Museum. Bathrooms are "down the hall" in typical Roadhouse fashion, and even though a bathroom has been added to Trapper John's Cabin, guests can still use its 5-Star outhouse! Breakfast is a separate charge but we provide our guests with coffee/cocoa/tea throughout their stay. ... more   less
