We stayed 2 nights, would've extended our stay if the cabin wasn't booked up for a follow on wedding party. Our host was the perfect concierge in all aspects...We made cabin reservations online with her effortlessly. Upon our arrival, she was sincerely friendly with best ever customer service; she gave us helpful information on things to do and see around town. We stayed in Cabin #4 which had the best view of the river from among the 4 cabins there. The place was nicely furnished and exceptionally clean, beds were comfortable, and the front porch view of the river and distant mountains was priceless. The kitchenette amenities/utensils were beyond our expectations. We borrowed a hot plate and pot from the host as there were no stove top in the kitchen. WIFI was unreliable in Cabin #4 as she had warned, but since the lodge's very inviting lobby is open all night, it was no issue to do a short scenic walk to the lobby for perfect WIFI. We saw a black bear, a ptarmigan/snow chicken, ravens and magpies from our cabin. The place was really quiet, perhaps from being there in off season. It was truly a Godly blessing to have stayed there. If you don't mind a little walk from the cabin for WIFI, but want quality accommodations, majestic views, reasonable rates, and superb customer service, this is your place.
The place was just wonderful, charming decor, clean, gracious accommodating staff, made recommendations for places to eat. Coffee was hot and delicious on that wrap around porch overlooking the river. I had absolutely no trouble making the reservation online, and wish I could have stayed longer. I will definitely stay there again if I find myself in Talkeetna.
The place is just perfect! The rooms are huge with extra beds for kids in the attic! Well stocked kitchen and lovely fireplace. The bathroom is also big enough. U have all the amenities u need with a great view of the river. The lodge is a short walk from town and if u need Darleen, the owner, so only too happy to drive u into town!
Great relaxing stay.Highly recommended!

“Susitna River Lodging is a great place to stay in winter” Four co-workers and I shared a cabin while in Talkeetna for the Bachelor Auction.
Staff was very accommodating and friendly, Cabin comfortable with plenty of room for socializing and everyone slept comfortably.
Bedding and pillows nicer than I expected in a "cabin".
Kitchen is tiny but has large toaster oven, microwave, crock pot, toaster, coffee maker. All dishes we needed were there as well as dish soap.
No TV but we didn't miss it.
Electric fireplace was a nice touch.
Spent our 30th Anniversary night here in mid-June 2014. Beautiful, well appointed, and roomy accommodations with a great view of the river. The staff was very pleasant. In all of the places that we stayed as we toured Alaska, this was probably the best.

We were pleasantly surprised, or should I say impressed. The service was great. The cabins are very, very clean and comfortable. I can't say enough good things about our stay. You definitely can't go wrong if you choose to stay here.
If you are traveling as a couple or as a family, this is an exceptional lodge to stay. Bring your own food or eat at nearby Talkeetna. The lodge is comfy and rustic. We stayed in rooms in the lodge rather than an individual cabin. We had side-by-side rooms which worked out well since we were three adults and two kids. The lodge is on the river and as a bonus, you can see the Northern Lights without having to drive for hours to get away from city lights.
Nearby Talkeetna is only a mile away and a pleasant walk along the wide highway.
I would come back here and stay alone - it is so comfortable and the owners are kind and welcoming. Our family gives this place ten thumbs up! The kids do not want to leave.
