About Mike sloan

Love to climb and hike the great Alaska wilderness.

Why Mike sloan chose Talkeetna

Won't get a better view or a more private location. This is not a party place and group parties are not allowed. We suggest doing any partying in town.

What makes this house unique

Great hiking and close to town with the quietness of the wilderness. With the best view of Denali available in the area.

Great property and Friendly Owners

  • 5 of 5

We hate we missed the view due to rain but could tell it wouldn't been gorgeous. The rental itself was clean and spacious. We really enjoyed talking to the owner, who was nice enough to come introduce himself.

Quiet location with an OUTSTANDING view!

  • 4 of 5

Absolutely, the best thing about this home is the quiet atmosphere and the outstanding view of the Alaska Range. Took a while for us to be able to see Denali, but when we did it was astonishing. The rental is homey with comfy beds and the use of a washer and dryer was great. You won't be disappointed.

Great view. Adequate amenities and very clean

  • 4 of 5

The best part about the property is the view. Quite stunning, which is what I was looking for. Unfortunately, it was cloudy and rained a bit, but you could still see plenty. It's all I need, and will likely return

Denali View

  • 4 of 5

The rental was clean, attractive, and very comfortable. We appreciated the use of the washer and dryer,and Mike and his wife were helpful and welcoming. There were lots of mosquitoes outside the day we visited (which is why we took off one star), but we didn’t have any indoors. The highlight was seeing Mt Hunter, Mt Foraker, and Denali all lined up in all their glory right from the living room window. We regretted that we were staying only one night.

Great stay in Talkeetna headed to Denali

Excellent location. Owner is friendly, and a great communicator. Met us personally at cabin upon arrival to get us settled in. Would highly recommend this listing to any family.

Amazing view in heart of Alaska

  • 4 of 5

Very clean, nice accommodations for family of 5. Fire pit and view of Alaskan mountain range are fantastic. Mike and Molly are very accommodating/nice hosts. This would have been a five star review if not for the bare bones kitchen with dorm fridge and hot plate -- tough for families who cook a lot. The updated laundry facilities were nice. We also liked the full size gas grill. This basement apartment is ideally located making a number of attractions accessible: Denali, Matanuska glacier, Independent Mine, and more. Owners gave great touring/safety advice and were responsive to requests.
