About Francine Curran

The Talkeetna Majestic was started in 2005 and took 5 summers to build as a family vacation home. I think it is truly spectacular and enjoyed being there so much that in 2011 wedecided to share it with summer visitors which has been great fun. I have lived in and traveled throughout Alaska since 2000 while working in various real estate ventures.

Francine Curran purchased this house in 2005

Notes:
It's hard to describe the feeling of being in the Talkeetna Majestic....the 5 picture windows and cathedral ceiling allow you to be surrounded by the beauty of the Alaskan outdoors while inside. The logs are as fresh as if newly pealed and so large one guest counted 130 growth rings. The Majestic creates a space for you to make wonderful memories of Alaska with your family and friends.

Delightful cabin in the trees!

  • 5 of 5

Went to Talkeetna expecting a "cabin", was pleasantly surprised to find a beautiful cabin with all the conveniences of a home - beautiful kitchen with all the appliances including a dishwasher - hooray! The cabin was spotless when we arrived and Francine immediately welcomed us and gave us ideas of where to go to eat, and interesting and fun things not to miss in Talkeetna. She had tons of literature about the area so researching and planning your days was pretty easy. Any questions that we had were gladly answered throughout our stay.

The cabin has beautiful picture windows in every room to catch natural light and to see any birds or wildlife in the area. Though in a neighborhood, the other houses are far enough away that you do not hear any noise from neighbors, and forest separates each home as well. It was peaceful, clean and delightful.

Great accommodations.

  • 5 of 5

Our family of nine stayed in both the cabin and the loft for two nights in July. Of our 10 night stay in Alaska, this was our nicest accommodations. The cabin is laid out very comfortably and has everything you need. Francine the owner is very helpful and easy to work with as well.

A incredible place to visit. The absolute nicest cabin my family and I have ever stayed in.

  • 5 of 5

The town of Talkeetna and the cabin are a awesome place to visit while seeing Mt. Denali. Francine was amazing! She will go out of her way to make you comfortable and satisfied. The cleanest and most well stocked cabin we have seen. We have stayed at many VRBO cabins and homes and this was one of our favorites!

A beautiful oasis with all the comforts of home

  • 5 of 5

The cabin is a beautiful construction with sunlight beaming in from all directions. It has a very indoor/outdoor feel with porches and decks in front and back, first floor and second.

There is a brand new washer/dryer which was very welcome during our travels. The cabin has everything you could imagine you'd need - my daughter needed a safety pin and found one among an entire drawer of various supplies one might need without expecting to.

The cabin is quite close to town, easy back and forth - a nice walk or a very quick ride.

Highly recommend this cabin. We'll be back for sure!

Beautiful house!

  • 5 of 5

The house was very clean and comfortable, you can tell a lot of love was put into all of the details. I appreciated it was close enough to walk downtown but still secluded and quiet.

This was the perfect place to stay for our family. Everything was terrific including Francine!

  • 5 of 5

Perfect place for peace & quiet, yet so close to town. Well designed vacation home, it provided enough space for all seven of us for an entire week, whether we wanted to all be together or have alone time. We had a blast & would return in a heartbeat!

Location

Car: not necessary

Talkeetna is fun to hang out in, with colorful folks, live music and exciting things to do. Have a drink at the historic Fairview Inn or the West Rib Pub. Listen to music in Village Park, get ice cream at Nagley's General Store...maybe see Stubbs, our mayor, the cat. Or spend time at the Talkeetna river looking at the amazing Denal view. You can take the "Hurricaine Train" of the Alaska Railroad, jetboat up a river to see eagles, go flightseeing around Denali or use Talkeetna Majestic as a base for hiking, fishing, rafting, dog sled riding, zip-lining or other Alaskan adventures. Only 2 hours north of Anchorage, great for a day trip or on your way to Denali National Park or Fairbanks.
