Susitna River Lodging

Talkeetna, The USA

Nestled in among the birch trees on the banks of the river, Susitna River Lodge offers comfortable rooms or suites as well as views of the Alaska Range. This is an excellent place to base yourself to explore the southern end of Denali National Park and there are a number of activities available nearby. You’re also just a short drive or walk from the frontier town of Talkeetna.

The lodge offers just a few suites in the main lodge and a small number of spaced-out cabins alongside the river, making this a great place to enjoy some relaxation and downtime.

OUR OPINION:

This lovely property with a riverside setting is the best option in Talkeetna. The cabins and suites both offer plenty of room and you can enjoy views of the Alaska Range on a clear day.

Rooms

You can choose from individual cabins or suites in the main building, but all feature gleaming hardwood walls and rustic furniture, a decor that complements the wilderness surroundings. Each cabin has a full bathroom, dining and living area on the main floor, along with a large double bed. There is also a loft area with two single beds, which make it a great option for families. The cabins offer views of the sunset on the river and the northern lights, if you’re visiting later in the season. The large suites in the main building also offer a range of bedding configurations and are suitable for a variety of visitors.

Location

You are a nice walk or short drive away from Talkeetna, which is very small but has some excellent boutique shops, cafés, restaurants and bars. The quiet riverside setting is really the highlight of the stay here, along with the mountain views and potential wildlife spotting.

Food and drink

Although breakfast isn’t available at the hotel, you are just a short drive from some excellent options in downtown Talkeetna. The Talkeetna Roadhouse is an institution in the town and well worth a visit during your stay. Featured on Man v. Food the portions are, in true American style, on the large side. You can also try the local speciality, sourdough hotcakes. While there are also good options in the town in the evening, each of the cabins at the lodge has barbecue facilities if you want to dine alongside the river.

Accessibility

The main lodge has one room that is fully ADA compliant, located on the first floor for easy access. It has a king-sized bed, a sofa sleeper, private bath, kitchenette and private entrance through French doors.
