We are open fall and winter and accessible with a car. Ski, hike, or just relax listening to the water.

During mid-July through mid September salmon are commonly seen from the deck of the cabin. 

Our single room private streamside cabin rests on the Southfork branch of Montana Creek, built from spruce and birch cut from our local forest site. Our cabins are solar-powered.

This heated cabin was built during 2017, it is clean with amazing views of our stream. We do not have television or hot running water and our bathroom is a cozy outhouse.

The cabin has 1 queen bed and 1 single bed.

*Less than 11 miles from Downtown Talkeetna.

*Just 5 mins from the Denali Brewing Tasting Room.

*A real wilderness cabin experience with sustainable practices.

Our wilderness dry cabins use solar power to supply lighting. There are wall plugs to charge screen devices. Please note, these are "dry" cabins with a private outhouse next to the cabin. There is a sink with a fresh water decanter for washing up and to make tea or coffee. We do not have full wi-fi. However, the local cell phone service averages three bars. There is no television.

The primary bed is a brand new queen, foam-gel mattresses.
We are members of The Talkeetna Chamber of Commerce.

We strive to create a "Truly Alaskan" experience. Our riverfront, cabin sites are situated on carefully managed wilderness property in a virgin, boreal forest environment.
Our cabins are perfect for any travelers with a vehicle that love to fish, hike, or commune with nature. Our streamside cabins have an eight-foot viewing deck where you can see an array of wildlife. Seasonally, from mid-July to mid- September, you can often see migrating and spawning salmon right from your deck. Please note that this is salmon sanctuary and fishing for salmon is prohibited. There are numerous sightings of grouse, eagles, mink, fox, ducks, martins, arctic terns, and the occasional moose or bear.

The cabin materials were cut within a half mile of the property, then milled and constructed just a few miles away. Even the tables and counters are handmade from the site. You'll be surrounded by up to 80- to 200-year-old birch and spruce trees towering to 100 feet.

Our sustainable solar-powered cabins are on the river and the large picture windows that make you feel a part of the environment. A firepit and a small bundle of firewood is available for your use. The cabins have a coffee maker and a tea kettle, coffee and tea are supplied.

Guest Access

Each cabin has a generous parking space and is just one mile past the bridge on your left. The driveway has a sign, and skis mounted up in the tree that directs you into our drive.

Guest Interaction

Neighborhood Overview

The Yoder Road-Montana Creek area of Talkeetna is a rural backcountry setting with several homesteads, small farms, and a few seasonal cabins nearby. Our property has access to the Historic Luthman Trail and the Yoder-Bald Mountain Trail, both trailheads are within walking distance from the property.

The Southfork of Montana Creek is recognized as one of the top rainbow fisheries in the state. There are also good populations of grayling and some dolly varden. Rainbow fishing is catch and release only. In addition, salmon may not be targeted or taken.

A walk up the stream is a great way to experience this amazing setting.

Getting Around

Although you are in close proximity to the historic town of Talkeetna, 12 minutes, you will need a vehicle. At this time, we do not offer pickup service from the train station.

Other Things to Note

Our solar-powered cabins are "dry." We have a brand new, daily serviced private outhouse, however, we do not have pressured running hot water. The cabins include a sink area with a large decanter of potable water with fresh towels for you to wash your hands and face and brush your teeth.

Please note, that although we don't have internet wi-fi, there is local AT&T cell service that averages two to three bars.

    This cabin was so cozy and inviting. The smell of the wood when you walked in was refreshing. The big windows were wonderful to look out over the river, trees and moose! The bed was very comfy. I loved sitting on the beautiful handmade bench by the window watching the snow fall. The host is so friendly and helpful. This cabin is so quiet and relaxing.

    One of the most beautiful, unique spaces I've ever had the pleasure of staying in. I fell asleep to the sound of water and the smell of wood. The directions are on point. I had cell service, which was surprising. The bed was so comfortable and I felt completely safe, which was important as I was alone. Out house was clean and had hand sanitizer and paper towels available. Perfect space to gather your thoughts. I would love to stay here again.
