Came here for a snowmachine tour as part of a package trip. Had never been on one. But Susie, the owner, and her assistant Patty, quickly had us zipping across the fields at 35-40mph. It was just a blast! Then we did some off-roading and had just a wonderful experience. They tailored the trip to our needs and met all... More

We came up for the weekend, stayed in the Trap Line cabin. The cabin was cute and rustic. There is no Verizon cell phone service or cable/wifi in that cabin. It did have a DVD player...Bring your own DVDs or rent some from the front office. A deck of cards would've been fun, bring those too! The kitchen had utensils... More

We live in Alaska, and have heard from several friends how great Gate Creek Cabins is - so we decided to check it out for ourselves. We stayed in a family cabin and it was spacious, clean, well-equipped, clean, quiet, and clean! We took a guided snow machine tour and it was the perfect combination of a guided tour and... More

If you are looking for a classic Alaska winter experience, Dwayne and Sandy have the plan for you. My family and I stayed in one of their cabins (Loon’s Nest) for a couple of nights. The cabins are extremely well kept and equipped with everything you will need for your stay. If you would like to bring food to cook,... More

Gate Creek Cabins is fabulous. We stayed in the Loon's Nest and the Forget-me-not cabins and both of them are spectacular. They are spotlessly clean, neat, fresh smelling with really comfortable beds. The cabins are roomy with plenty of gathering spaces inside and out. Of all the places we stayed during our Alaska vacation, these cabins were, undoubtedly, the nicest... More

This is the second time I have stayed at the Gate Creek Cabins, each time in a different unit. Both cabins were spacious and clean with well-equipped kitchens and lots of windows. They are probably the nicest cabins in which I have stayed, anywhere! In addition to being great hosts, Duane and Sandy offer back country tours of the area.... More

My husband and son have talked about riding snowmachine in "Petersville" for ages and this holiday weekend was my first visit. We spent 2 nights with another couple at Cabin #4 and although I had done NO research on the property and knowing my travel companions like to rough-it more than I, I was pleasantly surprised. In our 2 bedroom... More

Our trips to Gate Creek are ones that our whole family looks forward to. We love the Moose Nugget cabin because of the loft area - my kids' favorite. We stayed for three nights and enjoyed every minute. Duane and Sandy are great hosts and work hard to keep everything in top shape. You can see a full view of... More

We stayed in the Denali cabin at Gate Creek for 3 nights, and there is nothing I can think of that I would like to be changed there. Or it should be the tree that is blocking a small part of the wonderful view of Mt. McKinley aka Denali :-). The cabins are perfect, the service of Duane and Sandy... More
