... years here - first as the South District Ranger, based out of Talkeetna, and the last year, based out of Headquarters.
We travel a ways, the driver slowly warming up to our group, beginning to narrate and inform us on the origins and history of the Park. The glorious weather - sunny skies, modest temperatures, isn't lost on any of us. After a few hours, we round a slight bend in the road, crest a local ...
... Gavin...long train ride, but fun now at hotel in Denali. Jack and I are enjoying this special time with the grandchildren and I know they will remember it for a long time to come. They are so well behaved and polite. They get the giggles sometimes and we have to tell them to calm down. They are a joy to be with! Might have to think about where our next adventure will take ...
... Olivia had grilled chicken, she said it was delicious! Before dinner, Marley got on the webcam and connected with her mom. On the way back to our cabins, we saw a moose eating on the side of the road. Many students got pictures of this. Even I did, I charge my electronics while we were at dinner! We arrived at our cabins at 8;15 and spent the evening writing in our journals and packing our suitcases to leave in the morning. Good night ...
Going jet boat riding today then into park to see Denali. Denali is the Indian name for Mt McKinley. It means "Great One". Have taken lots of pics but Internet is weak so will upload when we get to Fairbanks tomorrow. We send our love. News flash. 8 am. Find out that river level is too low for jet ...
Flew into Fairbanks, picked up the rental car and drove 2 hours to Healy, just outside Denali National Park. We arrived around 8:30pm. By 10:30 we were amazed at how light it still was. It looked like late afternoon. Good thing we bought the sleeping masks.

TravelPod Member ReviewsDenali Dome Home Bed and Breakfast Healy
We made it to the Dome Home around 9 and quickly were relieved to see a beautiful home and yard. We met Terry and he showed us around the main living areas and also told us it was an Alaskan custom to not wear shoes in the house so he showed us where to leave our shoes. Our room was just beautiful and we were so excited.

Historical Traveler Reviews Denali Dome Home Bed and Breakfast Healy
Only about 15 minutes from the entrance to Denali National Park, I have to say that my experience was between "Above Average" and "Excellent." I hate giving straight "Excellent" because there is always something that can use improvement. Terry and Ann were very hospitable and helped my adult son and I out at their own initiative whenever they saw the need. I rate Ann "Most Excellent" to adopt a phrase from Bill and Ted. The food conjured up by Terry was very good as was the assortment. My bedroom at the very top floor was spacious yet a bit unique and more suited for a husband and wife in that there was an open bathroom; however, my son and I worked out our manly differences. The setting was excellent with wild life venturing into the back yard... yes... a bull moose arrived in time for photos, and because this B&B was some distance off the Park Highway, it was a bit quieter than other places that I have stayed. Truly... this was a very acceptable Dome away from Home!
Great Bed and Breakfast
We thoroughly enjoyed our two nights at the Denali Dome Home. Our room was very comfortable and the breakfasts, cooked to order by Terry, were delicious.
The location is very convenient to Denali National Park and is much more pleasant than staying amid the commercial congestion at the entrance to the park.
We had interesting conversations with the other guests--nice to have a big room where anyone who wants to can socialize and share experiences from the day in Denali.
The only improvement I suggest is to add a WiFi network so guests can use their own notebook computers to access the internet.
Wonderful Bed & Breakfast
This a beautiful B & B nearby Denali National Park in Healy, Alaska. They have 7 rooms available. Price is very reasonable as compared to other B & B's in the area, especially since you get a home cooked meal by the owners every morning. They offer a beautiful home that is open to the guests with free internet access and lots of first hand info on places to go and eat. A 10 minute drive to the park. The owners are VERY hospitable and friendly. I would highly recommend it. Denise & Al from Livonia,MI
We are two young adults (28!) from New York, who love the high-life of the city, but also appreciate a much-needed retreat from the metropolis. The Denali Dome Home was the perfect place for us to get away. It was affordable, comfortable, and relaxing. Terry & Ann (the hosts) were warm, delightful, and conversive, but never intrusive and knew when we wanted to have time to ourselves. They were very responsive to all of our requests -- all we needed to do was ask.
My in-laws booked the Dome Home B&B for 3 nights, which is just outside the Denali National Park by about 11 miles. There are closer accomodations but the B&B was a nice home. We had an upstairs room right off the stairs. The host spent about 5 minutes telling us that we were not allowed in the kitchen during breakfast and to stay out of the cooks way. The hosts also have 2 black Scottish Terriers. Cute dogs but if you plan on sleeping in, forget it. Each morning the host(s) would let them out around 6:45-7:00AM and they would immediately start barking. To our chagrin, the host would then yell at the dogs to shut up and whistle at them to come back inside.
Excellent and nice people - Good Value
The hosts make you feel like family. They have all the amenities you could ask for and more than I have ever encountered in a B+B. Of course there is breakfast but there is tea and cocoa and juice available at all times. Several computers for internet exploration, and Ann makes phone calls to find where people have recently seen wildlife. They have two adorable scotties - who will melt even the most ardent dog hater. They are absolutely the friendliest dogs but don't jump or behave in any way badly. The setting is perfect and the people are wonderful. Good clean well appointed rooms each with private bath.
Definately would repeat again.
This was my parents' (65) first experience at a B&B. The host was extremely accomodating to my folks - my mom has mobility issues. HOWEVER, I reserved a room with two beds for myself and my friend, was guarenteed a room with two beds, and when we got there, he had given out all the rooms with two beds. That left me sharing a queen bed with a very large friend. Not a happy two nights.
What a Lovely Treat!
I can't say enough about the beauty of the rooms and the congenial hosts. Terry & Ann are fantastic! Terry got up early just to cook us a hot breakfast before we left for the park. Instead of checking out at 11 am, he let us come back, shower & change after white water rafting after 12:30. The Dome is the greatest and makes a trip to Denali a greater experience. Terrific food- all fresh and cooked to your order.
Great Alaska Welcome
Found an interesting review on this sight--someone from New York.
sounded kind of sour, so we thought a note of correction in order. Our stay here was great. Good conversation, good company, good breakfasts.
Ann and Terry Miller were great hosts and we learned a bit more about Alaskan life from them.
I did not find the hosts to be very friendly. They acted like we were unwelcome house guests. The house is very beautiful and unique. At breakfast, the host didn't say a word to us, only talked to the elderly couple next to us. When we got up to gather our things and catch our veryearly bus to Denali, the host said," Well, you'll have to pay NOW".
It was very embarassing. Of course I wasn't going to run out on the bill! Don't bother with this place.
