Booked online. When I arrived, there was no one there. They close at 10:30p... they have one employee, Brenda, who also sets out of the bread and apple juice for breakfast. Well, I called to let her know I would be arriving late and she told me that she would leave my key code taped to the front door. When... More

This is an embarrassment of lies--on the part of this guest. We tried everything we could with this guest and in partnership with Hotwire, with whom they booked. I was away that night so it's true that my manager Brenda tried to help them, and she and I talked back and forth many times to try to resolve this, as... More

We switched cabins after our first night. The first cabin had only two chairs no sofa and very small. Ok for one person. We saw a... More

My family and I needed to spend some time in the Valley for a very special family event and we were lucky to stumble onto the Alaska Garden Gate B&B.

Garden Gate contributed to the Mat-Su Miners charity auction. We want to thank them very much for the contribution. Stayed there on New Year's Eve. Were able to see the Palmer Fireworks and then the Northern Lights. Great place to stay. Highly recommended.

Very comfortable, well appointed and immaculately clean. We had a very pleasant stay in the comfortable cottage which had everything we needed. Breakfast was delicious. The owner is extremely nice and worked hard to ensure that we had an enjoyable stay.

My wife and I stayed for 2 nights, August 20 and 21, 2015. The cabins were perfect. Loved the bedroom and bath. Kitchen was just right. The view out of the windows was breathless. Palmer is a lovely community. Karen was the perfect host. Would stay again and longer.

It was so nice to have you stay with us! Thanks for writing a review about your stay in August. In August, when the sun is starting to "set" during hours when people are still awake, it makes for such beautiful sunsets against the mountains out our windows! We're glad you enjoyed the views! More
