Luxurious Master suite by itself upstairs with retreat and electric FP/heater with 3/4 bath with heated floors. 2 bedrooms and full bath downstairs with washer, dryer. All linens and towels provided. Newly remodeled kitchen with stainless steel appliances including a dishwasher. Stocked with cookware, dishes, utensils. Satellite TV, DVD player and collection of movies.

Local medical/dental clinic a 15 minute walk that offers free shuttle service in the summer to Main street and the grocery store. Proud member of the Talkeetna Chamber of Commerce since 2012. "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. With all the comforts of home, you might never want to leave, but it's Alaska and so much to see! 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. Look out any window and enjoy a peaceful forest view to remind you that you are in the heart of Alaska, the Last Frontier! No doubt you will want to come back to your 'Dall' House for the fun, adventure and relaxation of this forest vacation home again and again.

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.

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.

Charming house in the woods

  • 5 of 5

My wife, two teenage sons and I thoroughly enjoyed our stay at Talkeetna Dall House. Cozy, yet spacious, it served as a comfortable "base camp" for us to sleep, eat, and recharge our batteries following daily hiking excursions in the National and State Parks. It´s located just a short drive from the town of Talkeetna with its numerous dining options, and a grocery store is also right up the road. Talkeetna Dall House has all the creature comforts of home including a modern kitchen complete with a gas range and dishwasher. The main floor bathroom also has a washer and dryer. Robin, the owner, was living in a separate rental unit on the property, and could answer any questions we had as well as offer discounts on local tourist activities. We would absolutely recommend Talkeetna Dall House to anyone looking for quiet and comfortable accommodations in the Talkeetna area.

Delightful

  • 5 of 5

I recently stayed with relatives at this lovely property for 2 nights. What a beautiful home off of the beaten trail, in a quiet and peaceful area. Quick drive into Talkeetna, but then back to the tranquility of Dall House. Everything was provided, and the kitchen was perfect if you wanted to stay in and cook. The owner is now onsite in her own mini Dall House, and is available if questions or concerns. Would definitely stay again. Thanks for a great start to my relatives trip to Alaska.

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.
