The folks at the Alaska Bed & Breakfast have achieved the perfect balance of the home and away felling. The place is easy to get to, offers a beautiful view of the mountains and is deceiving when seen only from the road. Once you get up the driveway, you will find a delightful and helpful staff, spacious, well appointed and... More

This B&B sits on beautiful property with a gorgeous view. We had a large 2-bedroom apartment with a full kitchen. We felt the price was reasonable for two couples sharing. The decor was pleasant, and the room was very clean. The bed was comfortable and we had a quiet night. There was good water flow from the shower head. This... More

Thank you for your review. I'm so sorry for the trouble during breakfast. We had put out 32 pieces of quiche for 20-some guests total, but after just a handful of guests who came right at 7:30 am, it was all gone...We didn't have additional ingredients to make more quiches, so I do apologize that we couldn't offer more of...

I was given a gift certificate for this location and decided that it'd be the perfect break during a busy time. I live only 30 minutes away, but the atmosphere truly allowed me to feel like I was off on a peaceful vacation. The check-in process was a breeze, my cabin was clean and all the necessary amenities were all... More

This place is a very upscale BnB. It's not as personal as most ones we have been too. There's its own check In house!!!!

Hi Darryl, thank you for sharing your comments.

My wife and I stayed here several nights, intermittently, as we made our way from Palmer to the Kenai Peninsula, up to Denali, over to Wrangell-St. Elias and back. We stayed in three different rooms while at Garden Gate... Once in the main building and in two cottages. Each was perfectly kept and super clean. Plenty of dishes, microwave, and... More

Thank you for taking the time to share a review!

With stunning views of Pioneer Peak, gorgeous flowers on the grounds and a huge, delicious breakfast....this may be my favorite B& B ever. The host is very friendly as well as the rest of the staff. The cottages give much more privacy than a typical b&b. I just love this place.

Really cute and well cared for. There were stand alone cottages plus a few rooms in the "inn". We were in the inn: full or queen (can't remember) with twin over top (railing in our room wasn't suitable for young kids), very clean and nice bathroom in the room, shared kitchen (sink, fridge, microwave). Breakfast was great: fresh fruit, bacon,... More

Stayed for one night to break up the drive from Healy to Homer. We did not stay in a cottage, we were in the B&B part that is more like a motel.
