This is the second time in 5 months that I have stayed at the Alaska Garden Gate B&B for business. The owner, Karen, does everything she can to make sure you feel like home. The hospitality of Karen and her staff is unparalleled. The quaint cottages have a fantastic view of Knik Glacier and the mountains surrounding the glacier. Karen... More

We spent a night at this B&B. It is a nice place with kitchenette and rooms are clean. Great surroundings and relaxing view. Breakfast was fresh and delicious. Perfect location for drive to Matunaska glacier.

The place was great, well kept, with beautiful gardens and an excellent view. We stayed in a cottage with an unobstructed view of the mountains and the glacier from our window, nothing else to ask. First coffee in the morning from our cottage was priceless. Karen was very friendly during check in, breakfast was good, but because it is a... More

Hi, it was a pleasure to host your stay! You're right, we are that odd mix of a B&B (because we live here in the main house, and we are happy to share our local expertise of our area with guests, about the best things to see and do) and something closer to an inn or resort because we have... More

I made a reservation 8 months in advance. I confirmed my reservation 2 months in advance. I also informed Karen that the card I used to secure the reservation was compromised and I can provide a new card. She replied "Don't worry about it - we'll get the new one from you when you arrive". Well the day finally arrived!... More

Hi Edward, I would have been glad to make the change to your new card when you arrived, had we not had several problems crop up during that day that of course were not your fault. I will say upfront that we let you down, and I'm very sorry. We would have liked very much to host your stay. I... More

The Alaskan Garden Gate B & B can be called a number of things. But we stayed in the cottages for two nights, independent structures with a bedroom, living room and bath. This part of AGGBB is not a typical B & B. The cottages are relatively new and clean if not richly appointed. Very comfortable although the mattress in... More

Thank you for staying with us and taking the time to share your experience with future travelers! We agree with you--what had been very plus pillow top beds in the cottages have become too soft for some people's taste, so they are scheduled to be changed out shortly.

We reserved three rooms at Alaska Garden Gate B&B and Cottages for six people nine months prior to our arrival. But when we arrived after six p.m., we were told by a young employee, our rooms were not available. No manager around to speak to us in person. Previous guests were allowed to stay over. We were devastated. We were... More

Karen extended kindness to a gentleman and his wife who had an emergency health situation arise while in Palmer. For the second time in our visit she went out of her way to accomodate our special needs, this time by scheduling for us. She is the best!

Situated on the outskirts of Palmer on a hill with great mountain scenery is the Alaska Garden Gate B&B. There are several nicely presented cottages in a nice flat grass and garden setting.

We stayed in Palmer for one night and I couldn't believe how lovely this B&B was. Adorable, newly built cottages and beautiful flowers all around. Kind proprietor and pleasant breakfast with delicious bacon! I would recommend this place to anyone.
