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 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! We stayed in the Midnight Sun Guest Apartment, and it was great. The beds were clean and comfortable, and the room was very large and spacious. The kitchen was nice, and included... More

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

We stayed at Alaska Garden Gate B&B twice on our trip to Alaska. We loved the Palmer area and the property has a great view of the Knik Glacier. Both breakfasts were great and the bed very comfy with nice bedding. I loved the soothing homedics machines at the bedside and fell asleep with the ocean sounds. Karen gave us... More

Karen was a very gracious host. She came out to greet us , giving us a tour and making us feel very welcomed. We stayed in the one bedroom room located at the lower level in the back of the house. The breakfast was left in the fridge and was delicious. First morning we had an omelet and the second... More

We chose the 2 bedroom cabin as we had a friend travelling with us. It was clean, with everything we needed but very dated. There is a beautiful view of a glacier from the main bedroom window. We were left a fridge with food in for breakfast which suited us very well as our friend was being picked up early... More
