I was in the area for business, this was my first time here. I will be returning. I had a cottage that was very clean, the staff are very friendly and helpful. I had a basket in my refrigerator that had a very nice assortment of things for breakfast. I would recomend staying here. You will not regret it..

The pros: The place is very clean (except for a bathrooms drawer - wait for it), the shower head is really high (appreciated by this tall person) and the gas-operated fireplace is a nice touch. The cons: We had been "upgraded" from a two-bedroom apartment to a one-bedroom cottage when we arrived. The charge also ended up being more than... More

First and foremost, I'd like to sincerely apologize for the hairbrushes your daughters found-- gross!! I'm mortified by that, and that I also needed to get soap and shampoo for you. I have corrected these problems with our cleaning helper. I'm really sorry that it wasn't a good stay for you. When your husband checked in, I let him know... More

My husband and I stayed in the new cottage #2 and found it quite comfortable and charming. Our dogs being able to stay with us was an important plus. The jacuzzi tub was fantastic after a day of hiking, and the chocolate covered strawberries and champagne a lovely treat for our romantic weekend getaway. The view of the mountains and... More

I really like the cottages versus the apartments. The view is breathtaking. The most amazing thing was the quiet evenings which made sleeping effortless. The staff are kind and friendly and make you feel right at home. When I come back in May I will stay there again! Thank you Karen for your hospitality.

Hi Sue, thank you so much! The individual private cabins are well-insulated and most people find them very quiet and good for sleeping! We are looking forward to building several more over the next few years, since our cottages are often 100% full. We'll hope to see you on your next trip! More

Our stay was wonderful! The food is excellent and plentiful. What variety. The amenities are perfect. I couldn't have been more pleased with our sweet little cottage. We stayed in the Birch Hideaway, and found it cozy. It was just the two of us, and it fit us perfectly. We only wanted a comfortable place to sleep, as most of... More

We stayed in one of the cottages for a couple of nights on our honeymoon from the UK. The cottages are lovely and the bed was huge and very comfy. We could park outside our cottage which was really handy, and we had beautiful views of the Knik Glacier from our window. The kitchen/lounge area was quite small and we... More

Hello, thank you for taking the time to write a review. I value your feedback and will take these things into account in the newest cottages we'll build next. You're right, the living room area of our Luxury Cottages did end up pretty small due to the amount of space the huge jacuzzi tub takes up! I'm sorry you didn't... More

Where to begin, first my daughter booked one place and was given another. That would have been ok had it been an upgrade....it wasn't. We were given the Blossom apt or such please refer to the website instead ofForest Haven I believe it was called. It said Forest on her receipt. Believe me please when I say I'm not trying... More

I'm very sorry you felt duped--I would never want a guest to stay here and feel like they didn't get what they asked for or expected. We work very hard to provide quality lodging at a fair price, and I'm sorry you didn't feel you got that. I protest you giving me a score of two out of five when... More

Great location. Convenient stop between Seward and Denali. We stayed in the Birch Hideaway and would not recommend that specific unit - it's a little dated and the heat was inadequate. So, make sure you stay in one of the newer cottages. They looked amazing. I also wish we had a choice of breakfast items. The items left in our... More

Thank you for your thoughtful review. We want guests to always feel free to ask if there's a way we can make your stay better, but I'm guessing we were already full on the night you arrived, otherwise we could have shown you a cottage. We are full most nights in the summer, so for future guests, making a good... More

Three of us stayed in the Blossoms Apt. It is huge - literally an entire apartment. There are pretty flowers all around and would have been nice to linger outside, but the mosquitos made that impossible. Everything was spotless, however we found a lack of sufficient soap/shampoo/conditioner. We actually appreciated that breakfast was left the day before as we were... More

I'm saddened that we were only able to stay at this quaint B&B for one night. It is perfectly located between Anchorage and Palmer, AK, and just a mile or so from the highway leading up to Denali National Park. Travelling to all three is convenient with the B&B located just off the highway but not so close that traffic... More
