Home away from home + close to everything + peaceful
Stayed overnight. Owner wonderful- responsive, super easy to work with, & nice. Home is nice - like staying at a friends for the weekend. Comfortable, everything you need, kids walked in and were immediately comfortable. Can walk to downtown. Home itself is on quiet street so peaceful. Plenty of space to park too. We would definitely stay here again. Highly recommend it if you are passing through Talkeetna or if you are visiting the area & need a home to base your explorations from.
Spotlessly clean. All we needed and more. Talkeetna is a fun place to visit.
It was a wonderful place to stay. My wife and I needed a place to stay for a single night and we travel with a very large (a bit over 200 pound) dog while going to Denali State Park and a bit beyond. They were kind enough to rent to us for just the one night and the home exceeded all of our expectations. Talkeetna is a nice place to visit, which we actually did not know before booking the stay. There are several restaurants, a bakery or two, and it is on one of the Alaska train stops. The home is close to downtown, but it is in a quiet area where you have your privacy as well as a place to park your vehicle safely.
The house was very cozy with a nice touch of personalization by the owners. Only a 10-15 minute walk from downtown, it was in a quiet little neighborhood. We will definitely be staying again.
House was perfect and the owners go way above and beyond! We enjoyed the stay!
The house was set up perfect for our needs. We had two 1 year olds and there was plenty of open space for them to crawl around in. It is a cozy house with a nice fireplace and set up well if you need to spend some time here. But the thing that made this place was the hospitality. The owners were genuinely concerned that we had everything we needed. They set up a pack and play for us before we got there. They brought over an axe and more firewood the next day because they thought the one there was not adequate (I didn't even ask). They brought a space heater for our boys to help keep them warm.
The place was stocked better than most VRBO's and even allowed you to use any food that was in the place. Almost like a B&B without the cooking.
To top it off, we had left an article behind and the owner met a friend of mine in town a week later to return the article. Just amazing.
The only thing I would say, is if you have little ones and a stroller, then it is further away then we initially thought the place would be from downtown. It was just fine for us, but the road was a bit longer than 3 blocks. There is a shortcut if you can maneuver the train tracks and a berm. Not a big deal for us, but something to be aware of.
Amazing city and Wonderful home and family
I can not say enough about what a fantastic experience we had at the Taste of Talkeetna home. Sandra and John went above and beyond in hospitality. They were amazing! The home was spotless and stocked with everything imaginable. They were always readily available before and during our stay in their home to answer any questions and to give advise. The beds were extremely comfortable. The bathroom was newly renovated with an oversized tub/shower. Sandra had all types of bath accompaniments. We appreciated being able to use the washer and dryer during our stay as we were on a 14 day vacation. All of the appliances were new and in excellent working condition. We highly recommend staying at this property. We can not think of any improvements that would have made our stay any better! Thank you to John and Sandra for sharing your wonderful home!
