I recently stayed a week up at Gate Creek Cabins for snowmobile trip. The place is a dream for snowmobilers and people like me that are new to the sport. The Gate Creek people are so helpful, making sure we had a great week. Their fleet of snowmobiles are very current and in great shape. I highly recommend Gate Creek... More

We stayed at Gate Creek for two nights this month. We brought our dog, and stayed in one of the cabins that allows dogs. Our family group of five really enjoyed our stay. The house was extremely clean, comfortable, and well-supplied. The hosts went out of their way to help each of us fully enjoy the visit, and were generous... More

We recently spent four days in the Beaver Landing cabin at Gate Creek. The cabin was very clean and well equipped with kitchen items, linens, etc. The large deck for viewing the lake was great. The setting is very peaceful with a lot of solitude as there is no TV or internet! It's an easy drive for viewing Denali and... More

We stayed at Gate Creek Cabins in the Denali cabin and had an excellent time. After a week on the cruise ship, coming to Gate Creek was just perfect for our family who wanted to get away from tourist crowds. The cabin was well equipped and the service from Susie was excellent. She was a wealth of information and always... More

My family and I stayed for three nights towards the end of our 2 week vacation in Alaska. I knew before hand from the pictures and reviews that it was probably going to be a pretty good place, but everything exceeded my expectations. We stayed in the Borealis cabin and it was awesome. This cabin was spacious, very clean, well... More

Son and family were in Denali cabin, we were in Beaver Hideaway. Both cabins clean and well equipped, including coffee, jellies and jams, spices and salt. We picked up groceries down the... More

My wife and I have stayed at Gate Creek 3 times now. Always a wonderful experience. Great location south of Denali. Great location for numerous day tripping adventures or fishing. Also offers snowmobiling in the winter. Susie Seibert , the owner, keeps the cabins in great shape and is a wealth of knowledge on the area. Finish off your bucket... More

From the minute we drove onto the property amid the wonderful gardens, we knew we were in for a treat. The cabins and grounds are meticulously maintained and the overall setting is idyllic. Situated just above a small lake, the spacious Beaver Cabin has magnificent views from the deck. There were two canoes and a paddle boat at the dock... More

This place was recommended by an in-law and it didn't disappoint. But be aware that you are in a part of the state without TV or internet (for the room, anyway), or even cell service (depending). The owner was very friendly and helpful.
