Built atop a high bluff, the Talkeetna Alaskan Lodge overlooks the Susitna River Valley and surveys the entire Alaska Range, with Denali (Mt. McKinley) right in the middle. On a clear day, all of the common rooms (plus 72 guest rooms) offer this same fabulous panorama. Take in the view as you take advantage of their renowned chef and award-winning wine list.
This lodge offers spectacular views of Mount McKinley and is situated within Denali State Park on the banks of the Chulitna River. Rooms offer nine-foot ceilings and fans; some offer amazing mountain views. When you’re not in your room, relax in the Great Room with its huge stone fireplace and floor-to-ceiling windows. Or, step outside and stroll one of the three nature trails, either on your own or on a guided, park ranger-led walk.
