Talkeetna house description

NEWLY REMODELED! for more pictures and suggestions on what to do in Talkeetna
Welcome to the 'Dall' House, an easy, two hour, scenic drive north of Anchorage. It is your romantic, Craftsman bungalow nestled in the forest of the Sunshine Lakes, a mere ten minutes from historic downtown TALKEETNA (the inspiration for the classic TV show, Northern Exposure). It is the perfect hub to explore Alaska's wilderness rivers, glaciers, lakes, mountains and wildlife from the base of Mount McKinley to Denali National Park.

Every outdoor adventure imaginable is available with world class outfitters and guides ready to take you 'off the grid' by SUV, boat, ATV, bike, canoe, kayak, snow machine, skis, snowshoes, dogsled, float plane or even ski plane. You can do it all: fish, hike, hunt, mountain bike, river raft, canoe, kayak, jet boat, glacier climb and mountain climb. You can even flight-see America's highest peak and make an unforgettable landing on a mountain glacier. And yes, this is bear and moose country. In winter the wonderland turns white with unmatched snow machining and cross-country skiing plus the spectacular 'northern lights.' All the while quaint and cheerful TALKEETNA is an oasis for the best in local dining, both fine and authentic Alaskan, and for arts and crafts and native merchandise.

Your romantic getaway is surrounded by the forest on your private one acre plus lot. Barbecue on the back patio and deck or relax and play in the forest glade. In summer and fall experience the green canopy of the tall trees above and verdant forest floor below. In winter and spring live the magic of the glistening snow covered trees and trails and pristine quiet.

Inside the luxurious, upscale, custom home enjoy the sleek slate kitchen, the two sparkling, modern baths, the comfortable bedrooms, the solid, beautiful furniture, the spacious, open floor plan, the hardwood floors, the gleaming inside laundry, the custom bookcases, flat screen TV with DishTV and DVD player, telephone and wireless internet. Look out any window and enjoy a peaceful forest view to remind you that you are in the heart of Alaska, the Last Frontier! No doubt you will want to come back to your 'Dall' House for the fun, adventure and relaxation of this forest vacation home again and again.

                      This is the valley below Mt. McKinley (Denali), one of the greatest vertical rises in the world. It is at the confluence of three mighty rivers. It is the center of vacationers and tourists traveling to mountain climb or visit the famous Denali National Park, a 2 hour drive North. The best in outdoor adventure is out your door. Salmon fish in summer and dog sled in the winter. Hook up with local, experienced guides and tours or do it on your own at your own pace. TALKEETNA is the perfect hub, and the 'Dall' house is your upscale, relaxing refuge.

                      Year Purchased: 2011

                      About: I'm Robin. Welcome to my little corner of Alaskan paradise! I'm a Southern Californian who visited Alaska for the first time in the summer of 2011. I was overwhelmed by its size, majesty, beauty and wildlife. It truly is the last frontier. I quickly dreamed of owning a piece of this bastion of nature's beauty and the pioneering spirit of America. So I searched from Seward in the South to Denali in the North and fell in love with TALKEETNA, the gateway to Denali and Mount McKinley, the favorite vacation spot of Alaskans and the mountain climbing Capitol of North America. I discovered the most lovingly Craftsman style cottage I had ever seen. I turned it into the 'Dall House.' It is our pleasure to share our vacation home with you, your family and friends. We hope you enjoy yourself to the fullest in good health and good cheer. With warmest regards, Robin

                      Why Talkeetna:
                      I love the home, the location and Talkeetna. A 14 mile ATV and snow machine trail abuts the property; it takes you all the way to town. Snow machine and cross-country ski out your front door.

                      The Unique Benefits at this House:
                      The chief benefit is the ten minute drive to 'downtown ' Talkeetna which is the tourist center for this region of Alaska. You can hook up with any of the outstanding local outfitters or tour guides or relax at your own pace. A float plane lake is just outside of town, the local airport is downtown and the Alaska train station is smack-dab in the middle of town. Strolling along the river or the hiking trails is another simple, fun thing to do. Or just shop in the local stores featuring the best of Alaskan merchandise. A 14 mile bike trail, and a 14 mile snow machine and ATV trail run alongside the property on opposite sides of the TALKEETNA Spur Road. You can take them all the way into town. The modern, local medical clinic is a quarter mile up the road. A local favorite, and ours, is The Flying Squirrel Bakery and Cafe, about five minutes towards town. It has delightful food and scrumptious baked goods of all kinds. Four miles South is the convenient, new grocery store and a large gas station at the junction of the Parks Highway and the TALKEETNA Spur Road.
