Peaceful, quiet and cozy. That's what our guests say about the cabin. We have made a place that we would love to visit and think you will too.
The Alaskan rug and locally-made wood details (side tables by the couch and in the loft by the bed) will having you feeling right at home (if you live in a cabin in the woods!) The artwork in the cabin by Alaskan and Northwest artists give the cabin a unique (quirky?) touch.
The cabin has a cool retro refrigerator and microwave, a retro Mustang radio / record player, a Keurig coffee maker, coffee and tea and of course, sugar, stevia and creamer. There is a water dispenser that we fill with our clear, cold well water just prior to your visit. We also stock with bottled water to make it easy to take with you. Take a look in the little bear on top of the fridge. No full kitchen but there is a propane barbeque grill outside. We hope you will enjoy some of Talkeetna's quirky, but good restaurants and roadhouses.
There is a fire pit outside, very cool, Star Wars themed!
The Queen size bed in the loft has a memory foam mattress and a heated mattress pad to keep you cozy, comfortable and warm on cold nights. The futon on the ground level folds into a bed if you need extra sleeping space.
Please note: This is a dry cabin. That means no indoor plumbing so NO SHOWER IN CABIN. The Talkeetna Roadhouse offers showers, $5 with own towel, $6 their towel.
IMPORTANT: We do not consider this cabin suitable for very young children (toddlers who are quick and like to explore) due to the loft and ladder access.
There is an inside (composting) toilet. It's very similar to a regular toilet, but no wasted water. It is clean, no smell, and simple. (If you're interested, we can tell you more about it.)
The toilet is behind the half moon door inside the cabin. No pipes to freeze, and best of all, no outhouse! It is very simple. There are instructions posted on the bulletin board on the wall by the counter.
The burls on the cabin are locally harvested and Curt peeled, sanded and stained them. The large deck will make you want to sit with a mug of coffee or tea and soak up the peace in the woods.
There is NO INTERNET OR TV in the cabin. (You came to unwind and relax, right?) If you need internet access, the library is just about 2.5 miles down the road towards Talkeetna. Most of the businesses in town also have wifi.
ATT has good cell reception. If you're not from the area, check with your carrier to see if your service will work here.

-Guest space is the cabin and parking area in front of the cabin.
-We are almost always here. If you have any questions or problems, please call or text. (If you see us outside, you can holler!)
-We live at the end of our road, so it's quiet. You may hear atv's or snowmachines occasionally or hikers.
-There is a store (Cubby's Market) at Mile 98 of the Parks Highway. It's a small grocery store, but probably has anything you may need. Nagley's store is on Main Street in Talkeetna. It's much smaller, but as they say, "If they don't have it, you don't need it."
Since we are 5 miles out of Talkeetna, you are likely driving your own car, but there is Sunshine Transit bus service on the Spur Road, just a mile away. There is also a taxi service in the Talkeetna area. There is a paved bike/walking trail that runs along the Spur Road from the Parks Highway all the way to Talkeetna.
-X-Y Lakes has a multi-use trail around the lakes that's about 3 miles long.
-Fish Lake (1 mile away) has float plane service to get you out to places with no road access.
-Talkeetna is a great pedestrian friendly town. The airport has several flight services that can take you on a flight of a lifetime. If you've never seen a glacier or Denali up close, they can make it happen.
-Please be safe. We live in moose and bear country. Really. When you are here, be aware of your surroundings. When coming and going, take a look around and make sure no moose or bear are hanging out near the cabin. If they are there, stay in the cabin and wait. Eventually, they'll leave.
-We have three dogs, three cats and two horses. Please drive slowly when you are here. The dogs tend to be very vocal when visitors arrive. They are friendly, but we will make sure they don't bother you.
-The horses are curious and cute, but please no petting. For your safety, stay out of the horse field.
-We live here in the log cabin, we garden, sew, make soap, and always have projects going on. If you're interested, give us a call. We'd be happy to show you around.
