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. I'm glad you had time to savor the beauty of our natural surroundings. I love flowers and gardening, obviously,... More

I recently spent 3 nights at the Alaska Garden Gate Bed and Breakfast. It was great. The room was very comfortable, clean and quiet. The property is well maintained. 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

We stayed here on our way from Anchorage to Denali. The owner greeted us on our arrival, took us to our cabin and explained all the amenities. Lovely place with fridge, microwave, cable tv, wifi. Simple breakfast was provided each day. Convenient to Wasilla (strip mall town) and Palmer (a bit more charm), Hatcher Pass and great hiking, and the... More

The Alaska Garden Gate Bed and Breakfast has nice garden and cottages and was a decent place to sleep. The place is away from Palmer and located in middle of nowhere next to a highway, and one needs to drive several miles to go for meals. Breakfast was a total waste and went to garbage bin. It was precooked omelette... More

I am very sorry that your stay with us did not meet your needs. With the number of things you didn't like about our place, it sounds like there was probably a better choice somewhere else for you. Perhaps an urban setting would have suited you better. We enjoy sharing our country setting (just 5 miles from Palmer and Wasilla)... More

This was a very nice duplex cottage, quiet, full kitchen, comfortable beds, nice shower and bathroom, view of Knik Glacier from our window. We recommend this place highly if you are staying in the Palmer area.
