Great location to downtown!

  • 3 of 5

The cabin was rustic and charming. Fit a family of 5. Boys enjoyed using the sauna. Wish there was room for a full refrigerator since we were traveling with a cooler full of food. The owners were very accommodating. I would recommend staying here.

Very clean, peaceful and quiet.

  • 4 of 5

We stayed in "The Cabin". It was clean, cool (it was hot outside), quiet and comfortable. We only had one night there, but would like to spend a few days there the next time we visit Talkeetna. It is much further from town than we expected, not a short walk. Perhaps riding a bicycle would be better if you don't want to use a vehicle to enjoy nature. Other than the unexpected distance to downtown, the property was very welcoming and peaceful.

Great place to stay!

  • 5 of 5

We really enjoyed this cozy little cabin. Kitchen was small but adequate. The walk to town was short and pleasant. Owners were very responsive to questions I had. We looked at the shower and wondered if it would be adequate. Instead it was amazing - lots of hot water (of course we'd worked hard snow biking and needed a shower!) I'd love to book this place again another time!

Talkeetna - the views of Denali AWESOME

  • 4 of 5

The cute cabin in the woods was a nice place for us to stay over night in Talkeetna. It was clean and had plenty of room for our party of 4 (could have slept more). There were multiple mirrors available outside the bathroom for everyone to get ready at the same time. It was also great to have the option of the downstairs bed since we were traveling with older adults. The only recommendation I have is to travel to Alaska with your own DVD's since cable is not as available as in the lower 48. Cable is not important to me but some people think you have to have entertainment available in a square box. Enjoyed Talkeetna! We were blessed with sunny skies and an AWESOME view of Denali! Make sure to visit the museum in Talkeetna and the Birch syrup store.

Owner's Response: Thank you so much for your kind words. So glad you enjoyed your stay and had an chance to check out some of the local offerings. You are correct, cable is not available in the Talkeetna area. We do have Roku T.V. which offers movies, news etc. We are in the process of getting satellite T.V. Hopefully if you should return to Talkeetna we will have our satellite t.v. up and running.

Great for adults and older (stair/open shelving safe/cleaning product avoidant) children

  • 5 of 5

The Cabin is adorable and the owners very responsive to questions. Arrival is very easy as is checkout. The Cabin has a great selection of eclectic books and games. No lie that wifi is very patchy except at windows but that is made very clear up front. It was VERY nice that there was coffee! We would suggest some kind of bar on the bathroom door to keep it closed during use (which would also solve the finger pinching problem).

If you plan to come with children be aware there may be a few issues. The shelving is open so little explorers will necessitate putting everything in top few. The cleaning supplies are under the sink and would also need to be put up. If you can only use the kitchen from the waste up there is not a whole lot of space. There is no barrier in front of the heater and lots of exceptionally attractive buttons to push, and of course the stairs are also open at top and bottom. Our little one also caught his fingers in the bathroom door (accordion style) more than once.

Overall even with a toddler the cabin was a great place to stay for our one night in Talkeetna, but for a longer stay watching him so carefully might have been too much.

Owner's Response: Glad you enjoyed the cabin. We are in the process of improving the wifi situation. Sorry the little one pinched fingers. I would agree that the rentals are not baby proof.

Cozy Cabin

  • 5 of 5

We stopped in Talkeetna on our way to Denali. It was a short stay and wish we'd had more time. The accomodations at Eastside Cabins was perfect. Very clean and comfortable for our group of four. Happy that coffee was provided.

Owner has a book with suggested restaurants and things to do which was nice. Very prompt replies to my questions.
