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.

Karen, at Garden Gate, runs a very good operation, clean, efficient, self contained duplex and cabin units. Located midway between Palmer and Wasilla makes for easy access. View of Knik glacier across the new Trunk Road highway. Convenient location for all aspects of the Matanuska valley area. Had a great visit up the road to Independence Mine State Park.

My son and I stayed in one of the cottages for 4 nights. It had a queen size bed and a twin size sofa bed. We had our own kitchenette. They provided coffee for the coffee maker, breakfast was left in our fridge the night before. I loved the muffins and quiche!! I wish I could have enjoyed the grounds... More

We found this super cute b&b at www.bringfido.com at the last leg of our unplanned trip to Valdez during Memorial Day weekend. Not many places accept big dogs and if they do, they are already booked so we hoped and prayed that AK Garden Gate B&B would have an availability. When Karen called back, we high-tailed over and to our... More

Karen immediately upgraded our room for the original price when our smaller unit was not available. We liked the detached units. it is above the highway, but accommodations are immaculate, very modern and comfortable. Breakfast was fine and placed in the room as is the custom in many places in Alaska. We try to be flexible and adapt to different... More

Cute accommodations overlooking a busy four-lane highway. Clean and modern. Shamelessly misrepresented and overpriced. Breakfast consists of: omelet prepared afternoon before by host, wrapped in cling wrap and placed on a paper plate, NO COFFEE (but a coffee maker with filters is available for your use), two literally and visibly spoiled oranges, an envelope of instant oatmeal, an English muffin...

I'm glad that you found your accommodations comfortable and clean. I apologize that there wasn't a full coffee can in your cottage--that was a mistake. I live in the main house, 30 yards away from the cottage you stayed in, so I'm available to help! I show every guest the sign above the coffee maker with our info, like the... More

We stayed in the Birch Hideaway Apartment. The apartment is nicely decorated and the grounds were well landscaped. The bed was comfortable and the many windows and heater/fireplace allowed us to adequately vary the temperature. The kitchenette was stocked with all needed pots, dishes, and utensils. Breakfast was conveniently provided in the small refrigerator. It was a typical continental breakfast... More

Thank you for leaving a review! We appreciate you sharing about your stay with future guests. The Birch Retreat apartment that you had is one of our economy choices. We strive to make it the most comfortable we can, but you're right, it's an older building, so it's not insulated for noise as well as our new cottages. I don't... More
