We have a spectacular view of Mt. McKinley and the Alaska Range, and our property has often been used by professional photographers and filmmakers who are looking for the perfect combination of Alaska’s natural beauty, warm, friendly hospitality, and comfortable, relaxing accommodations. Trapper Creek is a small, special place where “real Alaska” is experienced on a daily basis. It is perfectly situated about halfway between Anchorage and Denali National Park. We’re just a few miles from Talkeetna, the aviation gateway to Denali, with wonderful places to eat and shop. Stay with us and drive the few miles to this small, rural, Alaskan village. You can pick up the Alaska Railroad train there and continue your sightseeing from the comfort of their beautiful cars, or book a flight seeing tour including a glacier landing.
In late spring, summer, and early fall, most of our guests are visitors to Alaska, here to experience and enjoy Alaska’s wonderful natural beauty, but many are local Alaskans just looking for a break from the hustle and bustle of the city.
Denali National Park is a short 2 ½ hour drive north on the Parks Highway, where you can take a bus tour and/or go for a hike. The park offers a rare opportunity for Alaska wildlife viewing.
Other area activities include horseback riding, river rafting, boat excursions, visiting one of the areas several dog sled kennels where you can meet the real athletes of the Iditarod dog sled race. Or, you can just take a lazy paddle around Scotty Lake right here at our B&B.
If you are a runner, there are races of every length to enter throughout the summer. How about a summer solstice run? Or how about a round of midnight golf for the golf enthusiast?
Love music? There are bluegrass, jazz and other music festivals to enjoy while you are visiting. And don’t forget just relaxing around our fire pit and enjoying the beautiful surroundings!
During the winter months, we enjoy an interesting mix of guests from outside Alaska and local snowmachiners. The Trapper Creek area, and Petersville Road in particular, is one of the most popular snow machine destinations in all of Alaska, with hundreds of miles of groomed trails that will take you into some of the most beautiful terrain in Alaska via snow machine, cross country skis or snow shoes. And, it’s all just a short distance from our property.
Regardless of which season you choose to visit Alaska, contact us and we’ll provide you the “local knowledge” you need to make your trip as enjoyable and as memorable as possible
