... the most well known being the Wilderness Women's Contest & the Bachelor Auction, the latter raising money for charity by auctioning off bachelors. I may have to leave our lovely warm weather (hopefully) of summer & return to Alaska in December for a while!!
For the contest women have to be at least 21 (wonder what the maximum age is) & are asked to drive, or fly, many miles to show men that women can do all the work. The event starts at 1 pm sharp. A sense ...
4:45 Wake-up call, 6:15 shuttle, 7:25 flight to Anchorage. Lots of fisherman with professionally packed boxes of fish on dry ice queuing up at Air Alaska. Bob talks to another group hauling an XXL Igloo. Nah, man, they didn't buy dry ice....they wrapped their fish in a sleeping bag! Drizzle in Anchorage. 2 1/2 hour drive to Talkeetna. Luck changes. Rain stopped and we can see Mt McKinley clearly against blue sky. Talkeetna's a funky little one street town of eateries, ...
... the mountains. It was a sunny, warm day out, just like every other day, and Josh and I laid down on the soft tundra, gazing out over mountains and valleys and Denali. Huge bears roam this area, and we tried to keep an eye out, but it wasn't long before the warm rays of the sun, the soft tundra, and the silent comfort of laying next to the one you love got to us, and we soon dozed off. We lay there, side by side, his hand resting on mine, my head on his shoulder, for a good portion of ...
... it was time to go to the Earthquake park. This park was a historic attention and very close to the airport.The Great Alaskan Earthquake of 1964 was the second strongest ever recorded, with a Richter rating of 9.2. This is an area where you can see the results of the massive slippage of the planet's crust. It's a very short walk and would not take more than 15 mins time overall.
In the last 10 days, we have not done much shopping and wanted to reserve some time to buy ...

Historical Traveler Reviews Talkeetna Chalet Bed & Breakfast
Big Girls Overnight
What a fabulous visit! The hospitality and accommodations of the Talkeetna Chalet B & B are heads above any other B & B I've stayed at. I felt as if I were at an exclusive inn rather than a b & b. From the robes & slippers to the food, to the service, we were pampered and spoiled. Highly recommended. The views of Denali from the living room and the northern lights were added treats!
This was our first time at a B&B and will have VERY high standards for the next one! Talkeetna Chalet is a great place for a relaxing winter weekend in Alaska. Owner Rachel Syverson was a wonderful host and the B&B is beautiful. Waking up to an amazing view of Denali, relaxing in the hot tub, great homemade breakfast, and enjoying the immaculate Denali room made our stay so enjoyable. (Very romantic)!
We recently planned a women's weekend and were most fortunate to choose the Talkeetna Chalet B&B. From the moment we got there, Rachel made us feel right at home. The rooms are large and comfortable with many lovely touches. The sunroom was a great place to hang out and relax. I am only sorry we couldn't have stayed longer. Hopefully we will all be able to get together there next year. Can't wait for another delicious breakfast!!
We spent only a weekend here, but wish it had been longer. The location, food and lodging were top notch and more! I would HIGHLY recommend a visit here for as long as you can stay. The rooms are spacious, and clean, the hot tub was so relaxing, and if that wasn't enough we were able to arrange massages for all who desired. I can't say enough to praise Rachel for her efforts!
Luxury in the middle of mountain splendor, warm hospitality and Alaskan ambience made this a memorable weekend. Lattes, in-room snacks and refrigerators, a comfortable sunroom for reading, a serene setting for hiking, sledding, skiing or just plain soaking in the scenery!!!-it was a fabulously relaxing weekend that was truly a memory-maker.
Best B and B in Alaska
We tried the Talkeetna Chalet on the recommendation of a local and found it to be a five star experience. Our hostess, Rachel Syverson, is not only a wonderful hostess, she is a very talented decorator as well as a marvelous cook. Our room was beautifully appointed and very comfortable and the bath included a spa tub. We had a great evening watching her husband Greg's grizzly bear video (he is a nature videographer but was absent on a work assignment) and then enjoyed a wonderful salmon quiche the next morning! Thoroughly enjoyable at a great price. We look forward to returning.
This is the one!!
I recently had the pleasure of my first trip to Alaska and the great fortune of booking a two night stay at the Chalet. I would recommend this place to anyone! Rachel made us feel right at home from the moment we arrived. The house is beautiful, the food terrific, the hot tub was perfect and the views are spectacular.
We stayed at a few other places in Alaska but this is one we remember and talk about returning to as soon as we can.
Thanks to Rachel and Sarah for such a memorable stay
This really is the best
This really is the best place you might ever stay, they have thought of everything. We were there for 2 nights October 20th and 21st, we had our 15 year old daughter with us so we stayed in 2 rooms that share a bath our room was very spacious with a queen size bed and a futon, our daughters room had 2 twin beds both rooms had a coffee maker and small fridge. rooms were well decorated, even fresh flowers in October. Breakfast was a feast, we didn't need lunch after that. The hot tub was real nice open when ever you want. And then there is Sarah she is 15 going on 3 what a great kid. Any one that's going to be in the area this is the place to stay.
The best B&B we've stayed in. We loved it!
We've stayed at many B&Bs and this one is the best to date. Excellent accommodations and a warm and friendly hostess. We stayed in the Denali room which was very comfortable and has it's own bathroom. The breakfasts were outstanding and the atmosphere is very relaxing and enjoyable. The hot tub was an added bonus we thoroughly enjoyed. We plan on going back this winter.
We spent two nights here (Jul 5-7, 2004) and had a wonderful time. From the time they picked us up at the train station to the time they dropped us off again, Rachel and Greg were great. Rachel was very accommodating about our time requirements for breakfast and they were especially considerate about transporting us into town and back (even for our 6:45 am flight into Denali). The room (queen with private bath) was very clean and comfortable and the bathroom was spacious (especially after having recently left a cruise ship) with a Jacuzzi tub and separate shower. High-speed internet is available and proved to be very handy. Rachel was thoughtful enough to mail back some things that I had forgotten at the Chalet without me having to ask. We highly recommend staying here - you won't be disappointed.
