Let me start by saying that I am a city slicker through and through, who also apparently can't read maps. Talkeetna is closer to Anchorage than Denali National Park, but that ended up being ok. The site is located just a couple miles up the Talkeetna Spur, right across from the Birch Syrup Company and the Denali Brewing Co brewhouse and tasting room. It is about 15 mins further to "downtown" Talkeetna.
We originally rented cabin 2, which does not have a kitchen area, but Ken was super flexible and we were able to switch to cabin 1, which does. FYI, the pans are inside the oven. :)
Cabin 2 is simple: a bed, small table, bathroom, recliner, tv with DVD player, microwave, and minifridge. Cabin 1 has 2 stories: the kitchen, bathroom, and a pullout couch are downstairs; and a tv with DVD player, 2 chairs, and a bed are upstairs. There are also a couple of sleeping cushions and extra pillows and blankets.
The bathroom is tiny but functional (there is no vanity, but there is a mirrored medicine cabinet and etagere). The hot water heater is small, so you've got maybe 15 mins of consistent hot hot water, but 2 of us managed just fine (we both scrubbed in the evening and then I washed my hair in the morning). The heaters upstairs and downstairs had us toasty in no time!
Ken and Payo's cabins are a great value for the Talkeetna area, for the simple facts that they have hot water in the cabin and solid wifi. There is the added bonus of Payo's delicious authentic Thai cooking from the food truck out front (closed Mondays (and maybe some Sundays?)), which we enjoyed before hitting the road back to Anchorage.
We would stay here again if we ever found ourselves back in the area!
