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

First let me start by saying our cabin was clean, well-kept and had all the equipment we needed. Sandi was polite. This is a “NICE” property. But I must say: “Shame on you for the extremely misleading website”. I would not have hesitated giving this property a good review if it wasn’t for the blatant, purposely misleading info on the...

PA. We are sorry that your recent stay at Gate Creek Cabins did not meet your expectations. We regret that it was necessary for us to run some heavy equipment, during the day, while you were here, to clear some winter damaged areas. At Gate Creek Cabins we do our best to provide every visitor with a clean cabin, and... More

The Gate Creek Cabins are well worth the drive in. If you are looking for a place to relax and be away from the crowds, this is it! There are 8 cabins and all are wonderfully furnished and very clean. We stayed in the Trapline which looks over one of the ponds. There were loons calling and a bull moose... More

After travelling around Nth America from Australia for a month we took the recommendation from some other Australians and stayed at these beautiful Alaskan holiday cabins. Suzie & Craig as hosts were interested & really helpful , but above all considerate of the travellers needs. The cabin we stayed in was perfect. It was relaxing whilst maintaining "log cabin overlooking... More

Had a wonderful time at Gate Creek Cabins. The facilities were great, the hosts helpful and friendly. We stayed for 6 nights. We did an ATV trip into the mountains, went on a jet boat trip on the river, and up thru Hatcher Pass. Wish we had more time, way more to do and see. Would highly recommend staying at... More
