Work from Home at the Talkeetna House offers a perfect blend of work and leisure, making it an excellent choice for remote professionals seeking a change of scenery. This rental is located just west of the Talkeetna Range, and just south of the Alaska range, in the broad Susitna river drainage. Taking part in the strong community & relaxed atmosphere of this place provides a refreshing break from the monotony of traditional office or home workspaces. This environment is decorated tastefully to stimulate creativity, boost motivation, and rejuvenate your spirit, resulting in increased productivity and a renewed sense of enthusiasm.
The house comes equipped with a small dedicated work nook designed for comfort and convenience. In the nook, the desk sits in front of the Toyotomi heater (a great place for the winter), with an antique Turkish rug below (from Konya, the hometown of Rumi), and locally made block prints. By providing this separate workspace, you can maintain a professional
environment and minimize distractions commonly encountered at home. Studies show that the separation between personal and professional spaces enhances focus and productivity. People also like to work at the dining room table, which offers large windowed views into the birch and spruce forest. We have essential office amenities, including high-speed internet connection (20mpbs download/ 3mbps upload) and a Brother laser printer with document scanning by flat tray and multi-page feed.
Privacy and flexibility are key advantages of working from the house. Unlike shared coworking spaces or traditional offices, you will find unmatched privacy and quiet here. The only sounds in the neighborhood are barks every now and then, the occasional bush plane and the train twice/ day. This will allow you to work undisturbed and uninterrupted -- people have literally told us it's too quiet here. With the freedom to set you own schedule and create a personalized routine (Remember Alaska time is 4 hours before EST and 1 hour before PST.), you can tailor your work environment to your preference, resulting in optimal outcomes. Although the work nook is specially laid out for you, the workspace is not private to the whole house. The floorplan is very open with many different spaces, which gives the house a connected feel, so if you need privacy for video calls or otherwise, be aware that you should be alone or work when your guests are not home.
We offer other amenities and services to enhance the work from home experience. Equipped with a fully functional and stocked kitchen, dishwasher, laundry facilities, jet tub, Vitamix blender, Apple TV, Alaskan roasted coffee & cream, and a working wood stove, we've tried to eliminate the need for mundane chores that can consume valuable working hours. Additionally, there are opportunities for hiking, walking, riding our offered bicycles, & cross-country skiing to promote a healthy work-life balance. Taking breaks to enjoy these amenities revitalizes the mind and body, leading to increased focus and productivity when returning to work.
Working from the house has a positive impact on overall well-being. Remote professionals have the flexibility to incorporate physical activity and relaxation into their daily routines. With downtown Talkeetna only 5 miles from the front door, you have the opportunity to attend Wednesday night open mic at the Fairview, try the fish and chips at the downtown brewpub, buy a joint at the legal dispensary, visit the art gallery featuring almost all local art from the Mat-Su valley, or just go down to the river to take in the vastness of Mt. Denali (the great one) and the Alaska Range. Our town is the end of the road, and it's Alaska famous. While it's certainly begun to grow up, the community is still quaint at around 1200 population. This combination of work and visiting allows you to create memorable experiences, broaden your horizons, and find inspiration in a new place.
We've created an environment for remote workers to achieve a successful work from home experience. With our quiet and peaceful setting, dedicated work nook, flexibility, privacy, and an array of amenities, the Talkeetna House offers you the perfect balance between work and leisure. By working from here, we guarantee professionals can enhance productivity, achieve a healthier work-life balance, and enjoy a renewed sense of well-being.
