I just wanted to say thanks again for the wonderful accommodations, we had an absolute blast up there. Yours was the nicest place we stayed in, and even the little terrorizing Chihuahua made it the more pleasurable. We hopefully will get up there again sometime soon! If you ever make it down to San Diego, drop us a line. Bruce and Kristy
If you are planning a stay in the Talkeetna area, don't overlook the Talkeetna Denali View Lodge & Cabins. Not only are the location and view awesome, the hospitality of the hosts is just as spectacular. Newly remodeled, nothing was overlooked for creature comfort--right down to providing a razor and shower cap. Pillowtop mattress, rustic furniture, unobstructed view of Mt. McKinley and nourishing breakfast to start off your day, all for one price. We did a lot of comparison and these accommodations are value packed. As a guest, you have all of the privacy you want or feel welcome to visit and tap their knowledge of the area. The Redmans set the bar for the rest of our adventure in Alaska and we were not disappointed. Thank you for opening your home and providing a wonderful experience. We are planning to return next year for a longer stay. Roger & Penny Thomas, Claremore, OK
Dear Tom and Renae,
We want to say thank you again for the wonderful experience at your Bed and Breakfast. You have a beautiful home with wonderful views, good food, and very comfortable sleeping. Our experience there was the best! Your hospitality was above and beyond anything we expected. We will always have great memories of our days there. Sincerely, Craig and Linda Van Doorn
Hello Renae & Tom,
After a rainy two days in your area, we are back home in Arkansas and 100 degree temperatures. Thanks God for airconditioning. We just would like to thank you for a very memorable stay at your Lodge, even though short. Your friendly attitude towards your guests is something we really appreciate and we shall make it a point to recommend your Lodge to our friends should the occasion arise. We hope you and your mother are well and who knows perhaps our paths will cross some day again. Sincerely, Helga & Uwe Schmidt
Renae and Tom,
I wanted to drop a short note to you about our stay over this last weekend, 3/16/12 - 3/18/12. In a word: EXCELLENT! Ellen and I were completely overjoyed by your hospitality, the room and Renae's incredible breakfast! The physical plant itself is breathtaking. I can't think of a more beautiful spot to visit.
But more importantly, how you graciously accepted THREE additional adults with no warning. Travis, the tall one, you knew about but Faye and Jeremy were both surprises to us as well.
Faye had spent Saturday snowboarding in Alyeska and had a clothes-swap party late Saturday afternoon. We truly had no idea at all that she'd drive up. Jeremy...what can I say? LOL! The lad was whipped far worse than I after the 25K part of the Oosik Classic. He was so tired he really was indeed, having a hard time. He had lucked into a room for Friday night at the Talkeetna Motel but not Saturday. I am pretty sure by your graciousness you helped keep the young man from doing something truly stupid like trying to drive back to Anchorage or worse, sleeping in his car. Most hotels and motels would have said, "Sorry, no vacancy." But not you guys. All FIVE of us thank you from the bottoms of our hearts!
I promise the next time we come up, hopefully in late June, we WILL be alone! LOL! And trust me...we will return. I'm actually thinking about trying to learn more classic skiing skills for that race so we'll no doubt come up again for next year's Classic. If nothing else, to cheer Travis on.
I wrote a glowing review of our stay in Trip Advisor and posted a photo. I don't know how long it takes them to put it up on their site.
Again, thank you for a most excellent weekend and we will see you again.
From all of us: Ross & Ellen Homer; Faye and Travis Mickleson and Jeremy Derflinger, to you.
Ross G. Homer
I am writing to thank you for looking after us so well when we stayed with you last week in Talkeetna. It was a really nice experience for the family and we greatly appreciated the trouble that you and Tom went to in making the arrangements for our visit. Thank you for taking the trouble to bring us to the cabins and the air strip and most of all for taking time to talk with us over breakfast and sharing your way of life with us. We found both our stay with you and our time in Talkeetna to be a charming and warm experience, and just wanted to drop you this note to let you know that. We were sorry that we did not get to meet Tom ….but maybe next time! Please also convey our thanks to Jordan for doing such a good job and of course for her splendid breakfast treats!
Look us up if you ever get to Ireland.
With sincere thanks and warmest good wishes,
Robert, Ger and Shifra Tobin
We are fishing in ND at Devil's Lake. Caught our limit each day but had to work for them. Harvest is starting at home so am not sure how long we will be here. Was 90 (degrees) 2 days ago and is 60 today. Enjoyed our stay at the cabin and all you did for us. Appreciate you going the extra mile. We had such a good time there and the weather cooperated nicely. You are in a beautiful area. Hope this finds you all well, Hi to Renee and Jordan.
