This B and B was really lovely. Our room was in the lower floor of the main house. It was very spacious, clean and beautifully decorated. We had a full size Jacuzzi tub in addition to a full bath. Karen was very friendly and helpful.

Karen doesn't treat you like just another customer like the Big Hotel Chains do. She treats everyone like her family. She takes such good care of you!!! I give Karen and her Alaska Garden Gate B & B a thumbs up. It is clean, neat and her Breakfast was amazing. Karen home cooks it with love and great pride. 100... More

With my husband and kids I stopped in Palmer driving from Denali National Park to Valdez. The B&B is delightful and our room was beautiful, spacious, clean and very well equipped. The only negative point that we report is that breakfast was very poor : the innkeeper gave each of us an apple juice, a yogurt and a slice of... More

This place was clean and pleasant but we made the mistake of thinking we had booked one of the cottages. Instead, we booked a bedroom/bath/kitchenette inside the owner's home. This was spacious and clean. Breakfast was juice, banana bread, pre-cooked scrambled eggs to microwave and sausage. The only complaint is a male was sleeping in a room right on the... More

I appreciate the feedback in this review and I'm sorry these guests didn't get good sleep! Next to each bed is a white noise machine; perhaps these guests didn't notice it. In our guest apartments, are portable electric fans which can help moderate temperature or provide steady sound, too. It's true that some snore-ers can make it past walls and... More

Karen greeted us with a friendly smile and a nice place. The food left in the refrigerator for breakfast was good and a nice touch. Our room had plenty of space and a nice sized bathroom.

I stayed for a week at the Alaska Garden Gate B&B in mid February. The views were beautiful with stunning scenery. The owner was incredibly friendly. The cabin was very comfortable and clean.

We stayed at this charming B&B the night before we made our way to the Alaska State Fair which was only about a 15 minute drive away. The minute we stepped into our cottage we were so pleasantly surprised, we had our own private cottage that was clean, modern and new. At the same time it was very inviting and... More

Thank you for the review! I'd like to let any prospective and returning guests know about an important change at our B&B. We're now providing a generous continental breakfast in your own kitchen, for you to enjoy whenever you like, instead of three seatings of cooked breakfast in the B&B. The breakfast baskets feature a homemade entree such as quiche... More

We stayed for only one night in a lovely clean cottage with a great bathroom, comfortable bed, fully equipped kitchenette and very welcoming sofa and tv in the lounge. We were fully aware that the husky was elderly and sometimes a little grumpy and this was no problem for us. However having read the great reviews of Karen's breakfasts, we... More

Thanks for your kind review. I wouldn't normally take a day off during the summer, except that my father passed away unexpectedly 3000 miles away, so helpers filled in. I try to be on hand as much as possible, but in this case we had to go. More

This B. & B. was really the cleanest place I have been in Alaska. The only problem was that everybody needed to go barefoot or with slippers and there was a big furry dog , not so friendly (she tried to bite one of my children who was petting her ). We love animals and we are used to them... More

I'm terribly sorry if I didn't communicate clearly enough with these guests. I didn't realize they didn't get enough to eat from the ample breakfast full of choices that they mentioned that I cooked for everyone that morning. There are two tables of 6; the Pyrex baking dishes I have are different sizes so I let everyone know at the... More
