Our family of 4 (including a 8 and 10 year old) stayed one night in the cabin behind the Roadhouse and really enjoyed our stay.In addition to the cabin, you can hang out inside the common areas of the roadhouse. I was a bit nervous about the shared bathrooms inside the house, but it wasn't an issue at all. It is rustic, but very clean and comfortable. The beds were super comfortable and the cabin was comfortably warm. The staff was very welcoming to our family and very pleasant.
Although we stayed at some very nice hotels on a trip, I think that this was our favorite stay because we felt that we really experienced the real Alaska and had a great time. We felt more like travelers than tourists staying here. During the day Talkeentna can be a bit touristy, but by staying overnight you get to meet locals and alot of climbers. My family loved hearing the tales from those who had just returned from summitting Denali. If you want fancy, stay somewhere else. But if you want lodging that you will talk about for along time after you leave, stay here.
- 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
