"The house was an absolute slice of heaven ... just close enough to Main Street to be near great restaurants but also with enough privacy that you aren't surrounded by tourists." C.S. - Anchorage.

An easy two hour scenic drive north of Anchorage nestled in over an acre of forest. Midway to Denali Nat'l Park. TALKEETNA, (the inspiration for the classic TV show, Northern Exposure), which 2016 is the Centennial anniversary. If need be, the medical clinic is only .25 mile away. Beautiful Fish Lake with flight tours 5-minute drive. 5-minute drive to the only grocery store in Talkeetna. 12-minute drive to Main Street.

It is the perfect hub to explore Alaska's wilderness rivers, glaciers, lakes, wildlife and of course America's highest mountain Denali.

Every outdoor adventure imaginable is available with world class outfitters and guides. 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 Denali 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.

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 satellite and DVD player, telephone and wireless internet.

About Robin

I'm Robin. Welcome to my little corner of Alaskan paradise! I'm a Southern Californian, Huntington Beach, 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 Mt. Denali (formerly McKinley). The favorite vacation spot of Alaskans and the mountain climbing capital of North America.

I discovered the most lovingly Craftsman style cabin I had ever seen. I turned it into the 'Dall House.'

It is my pleasure to share my 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 Robin chose Alaska

I love the home, the location and Talkeetna.

What makes this house unique

The chief benefit is the closeness to Main Street Talkeetna but yet away from the crowds. Nice to come home to a peaceful refuge. 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 a few minutes away. Strolling along the river or the hiking trails is another simple, fun thing to do. Or just dine and shop in the local stores featuring the best of Alaskan merchandise.

A 14 mile bike trail/cross country skiing trail and a 14 mile snow machine/ATV trail run along 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 mine, is The Flying Squirrel Bakery and Cafe, about five minutes from town. It has delightful food, great coffee 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.

Charming house!!!

  • 5 of 5

We found the Dallhouse to be exactly what we were looking for. We met our kids from Denali National Park for a small reunion and stayed three nights. Everything we needed was there. It was perfect for some homemade meals. The town of Talkeetna was very fun also. The place was very clean and Diana, the property manager was very nice and helpful! I would highly recommend this house. We will definitely use it again the next time we make our trip to Denali. Thanks to the owners for making this possible.

Owner's Response: Thank you for your wonderful review. We're glad you had an enjoyable reunion and that the house met your needs. Our property manager Diana keeps everything running smoothly and we couldn't rent the home without her. We are happy you enjoyed your stay.

Talkeena Home

Very nice home and very clean and comfortable. Great location for fishing, entertainment, etc. Only thing that needs to be added is a gas grill for grilling those locally caught salmon.

Dall House off Talkeetna Spur Road

  • 5 of 5

Lovely home in a quiet neighborhood setting. Property was clean and well maintained. Home is quite comfortable and roomy with 3 bedrooms and 2 bathrooms, modern kitchen and plenty of sleeping room- we stayed here with our 2 girls and there was plenty of room (house actually sleeps 7). Away from the bustle of Talkeetna center but close enough to get there by car and also was a good location for drive up to Denali and other points of interest. Would definitely recommend this place and would stay again!

Great house in Talkeetna

  • 4 of 5

The Dall House was a great location for us. The house was well appointed and even though it was a short drive to town, it was close to where we needed to be. Our fishing outfit picked us up directly from the house. We made good use of the kitchen for dinner each night but didn't use the TV at all. We liked the feeling of being out in the woods even though you aren't that far from the road and their are neighbors on the road. We wouldn't have enjoyed staying in or close to town because it is touristy so this was perfect for us. However, you should really go into town and walk around a bit. They have a great beer garden on Main Street.

The only reason that we couldn't give this house a 5 star was the sleeping arrangements. My sister and her husband were quite comfortable in the upstairs bedroom, but my husband and I had to push two twins together rather than sleep in the trundle. This house is really perfectly set up for a family or a group of singles who don't want to be sharing beds. To make it perfect for multiple couples, I'd add a queen to the downstairs bedroom. Again, it's perfect as is for families or groups of singles.

If you are looking for a spot in Talkeetna, I highly recommend the Dall House.

Owner's Response: Thank you so much for such a nice review. I understand your concern having to push two twins together to make one bed. It makes for more flexibility. I will take your suggestion into consideration. I'm glad you enjoyed the location and closeness to town. I enjoyed meeting you and your family and glad you had a good time.

Very nice cabin retreat

  • 4 of 5

The Dall House was very comfortable and fairly clean. However, we couldn't rate it as five stars because of the following: We would have liked to had a gas grill to cook steaks, etc on, there was a shortage of kitchen equipment (especially utensils) so that we had to hand wash between each meal, the one downstairs bedroom was very small for two adults, only four kitchen chairs for meals, and when watching TV, two of us had to sit on kitchen chairs. Most of our concerns could easily be remedied. Had a great time in the Talkeetna area.

Owner's Response: Thank you for your kind review. I'm sorry you didn't contact me about utensils. I have enough for 10 people in the kitchen cabinet next to the stove where I keep extra utensils. Yes, there are four kitchen chairs and bench seating at the table which seats 2 more for a total of 6. And an extra chair in the downstairs bedroom. I feel I have a nice size sectional for seating, but understand if you need to use chairs too. I'm sorry I didn't have a barbecue grill but the gas stove has a broiler unit, and the local grocery store Cubby's sells disposable grills at a very economical price. That is a good suggestion to buy a BBQ for next season. The house has the master suite by itself upstairs and two bedrooms downstairs. I'm sorry if you thought one of the bedrooms was too small, though there are two twin beds and a small dresser. I'm glad you had a good time and I enjoyed meeting you. The weather was beautiful when you were here.

Lovely property.

  • 4 of 5

The home was very well finished and comfortable. Robin was very friendly and helpful. I gave it four stars simply because it is about 8 miles from Talkeetna. The drive is easy so we had no problem with it but if it were closer it would have been a 5.

Owner's Response: Thank you for your very kind review. The Dall House is in Talkeetna but as you said, it is about a 10 minute easy drive to Main Street. A nice respite from the throngs of tour buses and train loads of people that descend upon the tiny street daily. I'm happy you enjoyed your stay. I enjoy meeting my guests and answering any questions they might have.

Map

Car: necessary

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 cross country ski 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.
