Large, accommodating cabins. All needs taken care of. Extra showers and toilets for big parties. Plenty of extra towels, etc. Close to town, quiet, peaceful location.


Loved This Alaska Experience!

I traveled with my mother and sister, so the Mangy Moose cabin that we stayed in was ideal with its many beds in separate rooms in the loft. Navigating the stairs for midnight trips to the bathroom was a bit tricky, but luckily we had flashlights. Being off the beaten track in the woods was wonderful! Having an extra bathroom in the building next door was also a plus. We loved staying here and will again if traveling back to Talkeetna. Thanks Kathy and Mike! Lori Porwoll


Great Customer Service

3.8 on September 16, 2017

We stayed in two different accommodations at the Meandering Moose Lodge, a room in the lodge and in the dry cabin. Both were very clean and met our needs. Kathy, Mike and their daughter were super friendly, kind and knowledgeable about the area and Alaska in general. We would definitely return. More advice about dealing with potential bears in the area would have let us rest more easily!


Nice, quiet, and secluded

We stayed here one night while travelling around in Alaska. Rented a dry cabin which worried me at first, but the bath/shower house (and laundry facility) was very nice ... much better than I expected. Two private bathrooms: one with sink and toilet, the other with sink, toilet, and shower. The room itself had a mini fridge and microwave. It proved to be a very pleasant stay at a reasonable price. We would stay there again.


Great place to stay

From the time we arrived to the time we left all of our needs were met. Extra time was given to us when deciding where to hike. We could relax at the Meandering Moose or take a walk into town and enjoy all that Talkeetna has to offer. The cabins were clean and private. Kathryn- New Hampshire

My husband and I stayed for 3 days at the Meandering Moose. I was the most adorable cabin- perfect for our stay in Talkeetna. Kathy was very accommodating, offering an explanation of where to dine and things to do in the town. It is close enough to walk into town.We loved it. Thanks for everything-Joyce and Rob
