About Us

Denali Touch of Wilderness Bed and Breakfast Inn opened for business in 1991 and has grown from a small project without electricity to paved access and full amenities (and some pretty good food).

Our Inn has over 7,000 sq. ft, nestled in the center of 5 ½ wooded acres of Spruce and Birch trees with pristine, "pin drop" quiet and serene surroundings. Animal sightings (meandering moose) are frequent and wild berries grow around the inn. The Inn's common areas have fantastic views of the Alaskan Range. Photographers, bird watchers, painters, and all our guests love the views! Healy is "Denali's Year-Round Town" so for our winter enthusiasts there is much to do... see our article "Alaska"

Frequently Asked Questions

What do I pack when making the trip to Interior Alaska?

Layers, bring plenty of clothes to layer on and peel off. There are bugs in the late spring and early summer - mosquitoes and no-see-ums and a few horseflies that mean business - long sleeves are good protection. A light jacket in the warmer season, warmer layers as things cool down. Spring comes with break-up; as things warm up, puddles form and rain begins to fall; boots and rain gear might not be a bad idea. Summers are pleasantly warm, fall is pleasantly cool, and winter is a whole other story - COLD. The newer cold-weather gear is light and great for layers. Wool works, too, but think about a windbreak as it blows here. Gloves, socks, and pocket hand warmers are never a bad idea.
