Very user friendly and accommodating. Cross between B&B and a motel. Great location. Only regret was we did not have time to stay longer. Hostess, Paula, is the perfect example of Alaskan hospitality.

Paula was a very friendly, accommodating host. She was very willing to accommodate early/late check-in/check-out times which was a great help to us to work in with the Alaska Railroad schedule. Rooms are comfortable, well priced and centrally located within easy walking distance of downtown Talkeetna!

The guest house was terrific - clean, homey, and Paula made it a super easy experience to reserve the room, check in (early, too!), and to head out when the stay was done. Also, the all the Talkeetna restaurants are about a two-minute walk away. I highly recommend it to anyone going through Talkeetna!

We loved staying here. With 4 kids and 2 adults , we rented the entire upper floor. Common area in the bottom floor has games, ping pong, bikes available. Very clean, walking distance to most things. Paula is very nice and informative.

Stopping in Talkeetna was such a fun experience and it was nice to be able to stay at this home. We were six family members so we had the whole house to ourselves. Paula was so accommodating and down to earth. She made things very easy for us and even picked us up from the train station. This rustic house...

To reiterate what others have said, this is a small three-room guest house that is a great place to stay in Talkeetna. Very affordably priced. There are three rooms available with their own (unshared) bathrooms across the hall. Also a living room, a kitchen to use, a dining room, and an outdoor space to chat. Paula, the owner, made us...

Paula was absolutely amazing! We like to travel with both our cat and dog and she was able to accommodate us last minute. The room was nice and spacious, just minutes from downtown. My husband and I were able to walk just 5 min to get to restaurants! Highly recommend this place especially if you're looking for a cozy place...

We stayed at Northern Guest House after we were turned away from our original hotel because we had a dog. What a blessing! Paula was so amazing and truly made us (and our dog) feel right at home. The rooms were very clean and after our stay we hated to leave. There is a full kitchen with all the amenities...
