“Great weekend getaway!”
Reviewed 19 October 2013 for a stay in October 2013

My husband and I decided to go north instead of south for a little weekend getaway with our border collie. This was a great place to stay, just off the beaten path. We had a rainy weekend, and its the off season in Talkeetna so much of it was closed down, but we made the best of it, ate at the Roadhouse (get the Bavarian mushroom soup..its excellent) and Denali brewing company (not really the best beer I've had, but service was friendly, nice atmosphere), visited the shops, walked along the river and to a few of the lakes. Best part was you have everything you really need at this cabin. Its dog friendly, clean, warm, cozy and very purple!. My favorite part was having kindling, newspaper, firewood and matches ready to go so we could have fires outside after the rain stopped each night. This really was a perfect getaway and it was great to be able to bring our dog along as well. No fuss, very easy. It would be a great place to try in the winter I bet with more outdoor activities to participate in. BTW: it seems the curtain issue was taken care of...we had no worries and there is a toaster oven that can be used instead of a microwave which was just fine.Thank you!!

“Maybe the best deal in Talkeetna”

It might be fun to stay at the Roadhouse 2 (two- not ten, as someone else reported) miles away in town, but this is a quiet, private, very comfortable little cottage. The only other being we saw near the cottage was a neighbor's dog who came to be petted and went on his way. It wasn't the owner's fault that it rained the entire time, but had it been dry, there's privacy and space to sit outside, and a short walk away is Christiansen Lake. The only suggestion I could make at all would be to have a microwave. Otherwise, it has all the comforts of home, with non of the responsibilities.

“Very Nice Cabin for some privacy, yet close to Talkeetna”
Reviewed 28 July 2013 for a stay in June 2013

Very cute cabin. Plenty or room for the 3 adults and a kid. Talkeetna is a cool town to visit and take a flightseeing tour of Denali.

“Cute Cabin! Great Stay!”
Reviewed 26 July 2013 for a stay in December 2012

We stayed there with our two dogs! The owner lives next door but was super polite and interactive prior to us coming down. We had to drive out to Talkeetna late from Anchorage, so we arrived around 8pm or later and the house was unlocked for us (made arrangements to).

The house was equiped with everything we needed. The bed was comfy. Sleeps 2 well and 2 dogs well.

The only thing i thought was odd was there was no curtains on the windows downstairs .. I didn't like that because I couldnt see if someone was watching at night but we ended up just putting blankets up when we went to bed and then having them down when we were awake.

Great neighborhood, i think we were right next to a musher's team because everytime we went outside we heard dogs going off - that didn't bother us though.

I'm not sure Talkeetna was the place for us, but if we decide to go back again we are definately staying here!

Thank you Moonflower!

Nice place, about 10 miles out of Talkeetna. No shampoo provided, which put us out a bit, but other than that, everything met our expectations and was as advertised. The place was clean and cozy. A good place if you want some peace away from downtown Talkeetna and the locust hordes brought in by the cruise lines.

I am sorry about the shampoo; I haven't been providing it (cabin rental as opposed to hotel) but I'm thinking I should--I will look into putting some refillable dispensers in there right away. And according to google maps, the Moonflower is 4 miles from Main Street, Talkeetna. Thank you very much for your stay!
