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

Hi, thank you for taking the time to write a review of our B&B. It's too bad we didn't have our new Inn building finished earlier for your stay. Very soon we will be offering all guests a full buffet breakfast in our newly constructed Breakfast Hall, featuring many more breakfast choices for everyone! You're right, in a couple of... 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

Perfect in every way. Beautiful cabins, beautiful view, most cheerful host. Our fourth visit to Alaska, and 8 nights at 5 different locations this time. This one was the best by far over all years. You will not be sorry.

Karen was wonderful and provided lodging, breakfast and a special request that exceeded anything we could have asked for. This was the start of our Alaska trip and our two night stay was a perfect beginning.

Alaska Garden Gate B&B was one of the best places we stayed in on our travels. The room we had was actually under the home located down a small path. It had a wall of windows yet was very private. The room was spacious, cozy, and full of character and charm. We had a kitchenette, sitting space with a free... More

Our group of 5 stayed here our last night in Alaska before returning home. What a jewel of a place!! The folks there were so friendly and the place was great. We had two connecting rooms and it was just like being at home. The beds were very comfortable and the views were incredible. The food prepared for our breakfast... More

We absolutely loved our stay at the Alaska Garden Gate Bed & Breakfast! Unfortunately for us, we only stayed one night. We wish we could have stayed longer!

The Garden Gate was very easy to find thanks to the detailed directions that Karen sent a few days before our arrival. The cottage we stayed in was very comfortable and nicely decorated. Lots of natural light with large windows with amazing views of the mountains. Breakfast was ample - broccoli, potato and cheese omelet, fresh fruit and homemade banana... More
