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! 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

We stayed here the end of August 2013. It was one of the worst places we stayed on our 15 day trip to Alaska. We booked the "Birch Hideaway", it was an OLD single wide trailer they had turned into two rental units. They had attempted a DIY project to make it pleasing to look at, but failed miserably. The...

Hi Cindy, I'm shocked and saddened that you count your stay here among your worst in Alaska. I wish that you had expressed your unhappiness about your unit while you were staying with us last summer, so we could have helped. We want every guest to be accommodated in a style that best fits their needs. With twelve choices of... More

We had the privilege of staying at Karen Harris's B&B while attending a State B&B Board meeting at her house. The cabin was clean, new, comfortable, quiet and private - a lovely breakfast in a basket in the fridge as well as coffee . It was like having our own little house, supplied with all we needed or wanted. We... More
