Hale Kolea 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.

Richard Cheney purchased this cabin in 2012

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.

For the past 3 years, a kolea bird or Pacific Golden Plover appeared every August at Richard and Kalani's residence in Honolulu, Hawaii. Every day this kolea 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 Kolea or 'Kolea House'.

We sincerely appreciate your interest in making Hale Kolea Cabin as a part of your next Alaskan adventure.

The cabin is very well-kept and decorated, and has an especially nice kitchen and bathroom. It is within walking distance from downtown and worth the walk. Also, the owner was friendly. I was impressed and would highly recommend the stay.

This is the perfect cabin for a couple to relax and enjoy Talkeetna. It is within a 10-15 minute walk from the main downtown area and right next to many of the trails. Everything in the cabin looks brand new and spotless! This is the sort of cabin you would dream of having with new appliances, amazing bathroom, hardwood floors, great décor and a nice quiet location. No question, would stay here again.

Please consider staying with us again should you decide to visit our little village paradise. We wish you nothing but the best.

We stayed in this immaculate and comfortable cabin for three nights just before Christmas. From the minute we stepped in the door we knew we had made a great choice. The cabin seamlessly blends rustic and modern as well as Alaskan and Hawaiian in a tasteful and even elegant way. The kitchen area is well equipped and beautiful, the bathroom shower is like a spa, the bed is comfortable, and everything about this rental is both functional and high quality, right down to the dimmer switches and flameless candles flickering on the windowsills. The location is a quiet neighborhood within pleasant walking distance of town. The hosts are most accommodating, and we highly recommend this as the perfect place to call home while visiting Talkeetna!

Thank you for appreciating the functionality, style and substance we think our cabin offers to those who call it home during their stays. May 2014 be prosperous and full of great health to you and your family and we look forward to your next visit. Happy travels!

Owner's Response: Leonard & Dawn: Mahalo (thank you!) for taking the time to let us know you had a pleasant stay. We love our cozy boutique cabin and all its amenities. It's funny you mentioned spa as we're considering adding a sauna and expanding the bathroom as a suite. Modern luxury in rustic Talkeetna is few and far between and we feel confident from your review that we're providing that. We look forward to your return. Happy travels!

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.
