We stayed in cottage # 6 at the Alaska Garden Gate B&B and Cottages last week while attending a meeting there. The cottage was clean and had everything we could have needed. The bed was comfortable, the bathroom well laid out with hooks and space for toiletries. The breakfast supplied was very tasty! We would enjoy staying there again, and... More

We stayed at this B&B on two separate occasions on our way to and from Denali National Park. Palmer was a very convenient place for us to base ourselves and we did a day trip to Seward from there as well. On first impressions Garden Gate presents very well and is attractively landscaped. It doesn't disappoint when you check in.... More

We stayed in a luxury guest cottage for one night on our way to Denali. What a beautiful cottage. Karen has thought of everything - ceiling fans, cable TV (both living area & bedroom), jacuzzi and even a sound machine in the bedroom. The views are beautiful. I got a really good picture of the mountains & a rainbow. The... More

Very nice to have you here! Thank you for sharing your thoughts with other travelers. We're right in between the towns of Palmer and Wasilla, about 5 miles to either one, so it's pretty quick to get to stores and restaurants.

It was a little over an hour drive to Talkeetna where we did some sightseeing tours. It is also a little over an hour’s drive to the Matanuska Glacier. Anchorage is... More
