What a great place! Cabin was huge, with kitchenette and jacuzzi and shower. Very clean, with lots of comforts. Complimentary breakfast was really good too. Free wifi also offered. A peaceful and wonderful place to stay.

We stayed in their 2-BR, 2-Bath unit with another couple while vacationing in Alaska. It was so much more spacious and way less expensive than the 2 hotel rooms we had been renting in Anchorage. It was quiet and very comfortable. One side had a king bed and 2-person jacuzzi tub in the bedroom; the attached bathroom had a no-barrier... More

Despite the name, it is not really a B&B, but a place with cottages and motel type units which serves an indifferent breakfast buffet similar to a Comfort Inn. It is off by itself a few minutes from the highway and about 10 minutes from either central Palmer or Wasilla. You should note that the address they give is misleading.... More

Our entire experience with Alaska Garden Gate B&B was wonderful. We arrived after a long day of trekking the Matanuska Glacier, fairly late at night, but we were still warmly greeted at the front office and shown around to our cottage. The cottages are just wonderful! We stayed in a king bed cottage, and it was cute, clean, comfortable, and... More

It was a pleasure to host your stay during your Honeymoon! I'm glad you got to experience our brand new full, hot buffet breakfast! We will work on updating any partner web sites that still say we only offer a continental breakfast. I'm glad you enjoyed some luxury and relaxation after your busy days glacier trekking and all the other... More

We stayed in a 2 bedroom 2 bath unit with another couple. The unit was very nice, modern, clean, and private. Breakfast was different each day with many hot and cold selections plus multiple juices, coffees, and milks. Fresh breads and more. Beautiful views, close to sights and resturants. Our 3 day stay was our nicest lodging in Alaska.

Thanks for the great review! We're trying to offer a little of everything on our new breakfast buffet so we're glad you enjoyed it. The Two Bedroom/Two Bathroom Apartment you stayed in is our largest lodging spot yet, and it's a great choice for two couples or larger families who want together time, but not too much "togetherness", each with...

Clean, upgraded and excellent service. Although we had to share the kitchen in the room we got, it was a very quiet atmosphere surprisingly. Loved the breakfast. We will definitely recommend this place to friends that come to Alaska. :)

This B&B is absolutely wonderful. It's quite, clean, spacious and the grounds it's on are beautiful with a nice view of mountains. Staff was very kind as well. I would recommend this place to anyone and would stay here again if I ever come back!

We had a wonderful time at the Alaskan Garden B and B. Our first stay was for a one night stopover on the way to Denali. We enjoyed our stay so much we decided to come back for another two nights and this time booked a cabin. The facilities are brand new and spotless. Karen, the owner, is delightful. The... More

LOVED this place! Fresh salmon quiche for breakfast that was fabulous! The egg part of the quiche was so silky it was almost like custard. There was a large variety of home made food for breakfast including banana bread and homemade applesauce. Very family friendly. Our room had the cleanest, most sparkling bathroom I've ever seen.

Room is small but everything in a room is so clean and new. Two types: Guest apartment and individual cottage. We stayed at guest apt and it consists of ine queen bed and two story of beds. Breakfast is Best! Too special to explain in words. Omelet and salmon pie, yogurt with homemade apple sauce, etc.etc.... will stay again.
