If we ever stay in Talkeetna again, Susitna River Lodging will be the place, hands down. Krista was very responsive with our booking and modifications; the riverside cabins were very cozy, and we were shown some of the new cabins away from the river which were absolutely immaculate inside.

This is the fourth time we have stayed in Cabin 4 in the winter. The views over the mountains are spectacular although Denali is just out of site. Well appointed with a kitchenette. We usually bring pre-made food which we heat up in the microwave. Convenient for the airport. Easy walk to the restaurants which are less than a mile...

Situated in the old rustic town of Talkeetna, is this gem, Cute, cozy and quaint cabins along the river. The owners, Darlene and Harold were great hosts during our visit. Clean comfortable cabins have tiny kitchen and great views. The main lodge is a great place to lounge, chat with other travelers or just sit and read a book. Love...

We didn't actually initially make reservations here, but the place where we had reservations decided to close up shop early for the season, and they recommended this as an alternate facility. I did my own looking around first to see what else was out there, but I couldn't find anything else that fit what I wanted, which was 1. cabin,...

Wonderful place to stay !!! Great view of the River from our room. Staff very helpful. Love the options to sit outside and look at the river from porch. Commons area very lovely also. Nice selection of movies to take to your room to watch. Good book collection too. Would stay here again. Just a short drive/walk to town.

My husband and I stayed in a suite at the Susitna River Lodge while visiting Talkeetna. We loved the wraparound deck right on the river and slept well in our comfy, clean room. We took the backwoods "nature walk" to town, wandered around Talkeetna, had lunch at the Wildflower Cafe (recommended by our host), blueberry brews at the Denali Brewing...

Great room and beautiful view of river. My wife and I only stayed 1 night, wish it could have been longer. Very spacious lodge room with loft. Very friendly hostess/staff. Arrived on rainy evening, left on sunny morning. Talkeetna very quaint, can get past some of the tourist stuff. Good food at several places.

We stayed at the cabins of Susitna river lodging just for one night. When we checked into our cute cabin overlooking the river, we totally wished we had stayed for longer. The views from our cabin were amazing. The two level cabin was clean, spacious, new, and beautifully laid out. The lower level had a kitchenette, fridge, microwave, dishes, a...

I did a lot of research before heading over to beautiful Talkeetna -- and boy did it pay off. Susitna River Lodging felt like home away from home. The 24-hr guest area in the main house (complete with board games, movies, and chocolates!) is so cozy and lovely that it almost made me wish for rain so that I could...

We arrived in Talkeetna on the wilderness express train on 8/27. Susitna River Lodging was absolutely perfect! The owner picked us up from the train station. She was more than happy to take us anywhere in town! The lodge is amazing.... Located on the Susitna River we were able to sit on our private deck and enjoy the fantastic scenery!...
