This place is brilliant - lovely cabins, hand built by the owner and his wife (the amazingly friendly Peg) and located in just about the coolest (and quirkiest) town on Earth. I can totally recommend Talkeetna Cabins if you're ever in the area.

Don't believe the RV Park Ads that say they have wi-fi! They don’t! We have had very spotty to no internet access since Montana…..Oh for a McDonalds! Another reason for some of those good old American brands that at least give you a measure of quality, no matter good or ...
... s why I sacrificed my sleep & got up early. I was told that there was a 2 hour one at noon, which I knew about but didn’t fancy. I asked about the 3 hour one but, not only was it being delayed by 1 hour, (ie 4.30pm departure) but it needed 6 people on it to run & they had no bookings at that time. I was soooo bummed that I left to mull things over. I saw another boat trip company & went in to ask what they do but was told that, at this time of the year, ...
