At the Talkeetna Alaskan Lodge, it's all about the view. Built atop a high bluff, the lodge overlooks the Susitna River Valley and surveys the entire Alaska Range, with Mt. McKinley right in the middle. On a clear day, all of the common rooms (and 72 of the guest rooms) offer this same stunning panorama of river valleys and rugged peaks.
On sunny summer evenings, linger on the front porch for hours, staring at the impressive Alaska Range which spans the horizon above the lodge’s sprawling front lawn. At the same time, enjoy top-notch cuisine from the lodge's renowned chef, paired with a selection from the award-winning wine list. The views are so wonderful, in fact, that local Alaskans love the lodge just as much as visitors. During your stay, you will likely meet someone from Alaska, or witness a wedding ceremony with Mount McKinley as the backdrop.
This lodge tastefully blends upscale elegance with an authentic Alaskan twist, incorporating local materials. The interior of the main lodge was made from Kenai Peninsula timber, the staircase railing used Mat-Su Valley white spruce, and the centerpiece of the grand lobby, a 56-foot-high stone fireplace, was constructed with rocks gathered from the bed of Matanuska River.
With five buildings spread over 35 acres, you will feel as if you are deep in the wilderness, even though the lodge is located just a few minutes from town.
Most visitors spend only one night here en route to Denali, but consider unwinding here for two nights—and sampling the many fun Talkeetna day tours.
Insider’s Tip: If the lodge is sold out, ask for a mountainside room. They can almost always get you in.
By Car: From the intersection of the Glenn Hwy with Talkeetna Spur Rd, drive towards Talkeetna for about 13 miles. Take a right at the Lodge sign and follow the road to its end. If you cross the RR tracks on Talkeetna Spur, you’ve gone too far.
By Train: Take the train from Anchorage (3 hrs) or Fairbanks (9 hrs). Talkeetna depot is located at Mile 13.5 Talkeetna Spur Rd. Pre-arrange a transfer from depot to hotel.
