Your host, Paula, has lived in Alaska since 1980. She started out living in the remote areas of Alaska without running water or electricity for 15 years. She has
commercial fished, ran dog teams and built cabins, both log and frame. In 1994 Paula moved from the remote cabin north of Talkeetna to the town of Talkeetna, opening up a retail and repair business at the current Guest House location. That business moved, allowing her to renovate the building into the current Talkeetna Northern Guest House rental business. She has volunteered at the elementary school, worked with the seniors and VFW, is currently with the local ambulance team, and always still building. She built Talkeetna Northern Guest House from the ground up and takes pride in providing quality lodging for her guests.
