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

I really enjoyed by stay at Alaska Garden Gate B&B near Palmer. It was the perfect location for our day trips. The suite we had was clean and quiet and a pretty good price. I'm planning to stay there again when I go to Palmer this fall.

So I had the Luxury Cottage with the Jacuzzi and it was really awesome here you have your own little home with kitchen and a nice view,... More

We stayed in one of the cottages that is only 3 years old and looks brand new. It was very comfortable, convenient and private. Our frig was stocked with breakfast food that was okay, but nothing special. Karen supplied us with very helpful information on our destination. I would highly recommend this facility.

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.

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.
