Welcome To

The Grove

in Talkeetna, Alaska

Gather, Celebrate, Relax

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.
