Talkeetna is located 114 road miles North of Anchorage. The trip is a direct and easy one as there are few highways in Alaska. Click on the map to the left for more detailed directions from Anchorage.
During the summer months expect delays along the highway due to construction. What normally is a 2.5 hour trip can easily turn into 4 hours during the peak of the road construction season.
If you don't have a personal vehicle - there are several transportation alternatives. After the Spring 'Break Up', where major fields of ice melt under the coming Alaska Summer sun, the Alaska Railroad begins passenger service north from Anchorage. It leaves Anchorage daily at 8:15 AM and arrives in Talkeetna at 11:25 AM. If you plan on arriving by train, contact us and we will arrange a car for you and your luggage to be transported to your cabin.
There are also two reliable shuttle services operating out of Talkeetna who will pick you up in Anchorage and drop you off at our door.
Once in Talkeetna you can ask anyone where the Talkeetna Hideaway is. We are conveniently located on the East side of town, since we are located East of the the Alaska Railroad tracks, at the corner of G Street and Gliska Street.
Feel free to contact us in case you get lost or need more specific driving directions.
