trapper johns cabins

Welcome to Trapper John’s Cabin & Cottages!

We are located on the edge of ‘beautiful Downtown Talkeetna, Alaska,’ along the Historic Village Airstrip.  The property’s oldest cabin served as a town home for a couple of gold prospecting brothers.  By the early 70s Trapper John made it his home base, even parking his plane in the front yard.  Today two old log cabins and two frame cottages offer an authentic, comfortable stay, not more than a few blocks from the hustle and bustle of Main Street.   Each no-host accommodation is intimate and unique, as well as dog and child friendly.  We are inspired by the history of the property, as well as its past inhabitants, to maintain and share these cabins and cottages.  And we look forward to inviting you here, in every season!

Book multiple nights for the best rate and experience!

  Two nights is not too many… there are so many activities, eateries, trails and all manner of exploration.  One night is not enough, by a long shot!  The more nights you book the lower the nightly rate goes.  Plus, more time in Talkeetna allows you to truly relax, still take a flight tour of the mountain if it’s rescheduled due to weather, base-camp yourself as you venture out to explore Denali State Park or enjoy hiking, biking or boating adventures from here.   And, sometimes you just need to catch up on laundry and travel journaling!  Heck…why leave?
