The Grove was born in 1978 as the Old Tyme Saloon and the Sistine Chapel of Alaska that adorns the ceiling of the Grand Hall was painted shortly thereafter. There's room for everyone to gather in this spacious centerpiece of the property. Retire to one of the downstairs bedrooms for the evening, or to one of the private sleeping quarters, including the Amanita Tiny House and the Nomad Cabin. Enjoy the beautiful farm outdoors, including farm animals, gardens, and private nature trails.

The space
SPACIOUS: The Grove is spacious - easily handling anything short of a small army, making this is the perfect space for large families, multiple families, or small groups. But don't let the size fool you - it feels incredibly warm and cozy as well, to make even a couple or small family feel comfortable and right at home. The upstairs Grand Hall provides a ~ 48'x64' open space with high quality laminate flooring that is perfect for dancing, yoga, or letting the kids run about to their hearts content. The downstairs provides a separate living and sleeping quarters, as well as the main, full bathroom and laundry facilities. Don't forget about the tiny house that is just a short walk away, which provides and even more private domicile for those looking for a little more solitude.

ARTISTIC: Art abounds at The Grove. The beautiful "Sistine Chapel of Alaska" as it's referred to locally, was pained in the early and mid 1980's by T.E. Barber, a local Talkeetna artist. The Grove is also architecturally pleasing, with the vast log construction and the massive cable and turnbuckle trusses that were installed during the renovations in the mid 2000's. Bits and pieces of additional Alaskan Art can be found throughout the property.

FARM AND OUTDOOR SPACE: The Grove's offerings do not stop there. A whole other world exists outside your cabin, as The Grove operates as small farmstead that produces microgreens, mushrooms, and edible flowers. We'd love to give you a complimentary tour of the farm operations and the rest of the property during your stay! There are also private nature trails for short hikes and exploring the grounds.

Where you’ll be

Talkeetna, Alaska, United States

The Grove is conveniently located halfway between the Parks Highway and the bustling town of Talkeetna, the end of the Talkeetna Spur Road. So it's an easy stroll into town town to experience the excitement of the historic mining town, and a quiet retreat from the hustle-and-bustle at the end of the day. When it's time to say goodbye, you're already halfway back to the highway to embark on your next adventure.
