                              Talkeetna is the 'gateway' to Denali National Park & a great home base for activities such as: flightseeing tours to Denali (Mt. McKinley); mountaineering; salmon & fly fishing; hunting; horse back ridding; zip lining; cross country skiing; wilderness hiking; snow machining; dog sledding; shopping; restaurants and local craft fairs.

                              Evening summer concerts in the park are a favorite attraction for locals and visitors. Talkeetna was the inspiration for the popular TV series, 'Northern Exposure'.

                              Popular festivals are the Moose Dropping Festival in July and Winterfest that takes place the entire month of December and culminates with the Wilderness Woman contest and Bachelor Auction & Ball.

                              The core downtown district is classified as a National Historic Site which includes buildings dating back to the early 1900s, including Nagley's General Store, Fairview Inn and the Talkeetna Roadhouse. Mayor of Talkeetna is a cat named Stubbs.

                              Year Purchased: 2012

                              About: Hale Kōlea Cabin is a labor of love project by owner, Richard Cheney and his partner Kalani Chong. Richard, a graduate of University of Michigan, grew up in Williamston, Michigan and has been a Hawaii resident for over 35 years. Richard is a 12-time Honolulu Marathon and 3-time Iron Man finisher. His partner Kalani is a Native Hawaiian whose lineage can be traced back to Hawaii's Princess Ka'iulani. Kalani enjoys traveling to UNESCO World Heritage Sites and collecting vinyl records as art. Both live in Honolulu, Hawaii and work in the health care industry.

                              Why Talkeetna:
                              Richard and Kalani unknowingly fell in love with Talkeetna while on a March 2012 winter vacation that began with Anchorage, then Fairbanks and eventually ended with a picturesque Aurora train ride to the charming town of Talkeetna. One night's stay in Trapper John's Cabin is all it took to launch research of available real estate that quickly led to groundbreaking four months later on July 3, 2012.

                              The Unique Benefits at this Cabin:
                              For the past 3 years, a kōlea bird or Pacific Golden Plover appeared every August at Richard and Kalani's residence in Honolulu, Hawaii. Every day this kōlea bird could be seen grazing the grassy parts of their property for an insatiable appetite of insects, all while enjoying the warm Hawaiian sun. Every April, their bird would vanish and heed its migratory call to flock north to Alaska. This miracle instinct fittingly inspired the cabin's name, Hale Kōlea (Ha-lay Co-lay-ah) or 'Kōlea House'. We sincerely appreciate your interest in making Hale Kolea Cabin as a part of your next Alaskan adventure. We look forward to your stay.
