Talkeetna Alaskan Lodge




Set on a ridge just above the town of Talkeetna, the Talkeetna Alaskan Lodge provides soon-to-be-wed couples with the ideal backdrop for their wedding day just outside of Denali. Offering majestic views of the tallest peak in North America, this Lodge is conveniently located just north of Anchorage in a remote area that is ideal for a night, weekend, or week of adventures whether relaxing and high-energy. Imagine saying your “I do’s” in one of the three outdoor locations on the property, whether you are exchanging your vows beneath a rugged pavilion with natural stone fireplace or sharing your first kiss as spouses with Mt Denali and the Alaskan Range as a backdrop. Grand Alaskan landscapes abound, providing one-of-a-kind backdrops for your wedding photos. Celebrate your union in one of the lodge’s gorgeous spaces, the most popular being the Ptarmigan Room that walks out onto the Lower Viewing Deck facing Mt Denali in her majesty. Our beautiful stone pillared Pavilion with a reception under a grand tent creates a perfect outdoor celebration setting. For a more intimate occasion the Caribou Room features a forest view. Finally, our Foraker Dining Room can accommodate a large event during select times of the year.
