Fodor's Expert Review Talkeetna Roadhouse

13550 E. Main St., Talkeetna, Alaska, 99676, USA

This circa-1917 log roadhouse has a common sitting area and rooms of varying sizes. The accommodations include a hostel-style bunk room with four beds, two rustic cabins, and an apartment over the museum. Rooms are very basic: bed, table, window, period. Sizable breakfasts featuring sourdough pancakes from a 1902 starter and famous cinnamon rolls are served at the communal-seating restaurant. This is a popular place with locals and with climbers who use Talkeetna's air taxis to reach Denali. In winter, the café is open only on weekends and evenings.
