We really enjoyed our stay at the Alaska Garden Gate B & B! They were very accommodating to our needs. Great breakfast. The rooms were clean, comfortable, and quiet. The only issue was the size of the bath towels or rather over sized hand towels. They were the smalls towel I have ever seen. Cabins are well equipped and roomy.

Hi Julie, thanks for your feedback, and I'm glad you had a good stay! Our towels have been on my mind a lot this summer, too. I'm sorry that you missed our new towels by a day or two! We just got our new shipment of plush bath mats and other new ones. It's tough to find the right product within Alaska, and freighting from the Lower 48 more than doubles the costs. Our previous larger towels turned a funny color over time so we had to replace them at the beginning of this summer, and we ended up with towels that were smaller than I would have preferred. It took three weeks of cleaning out then re-shopping at the 5 Wal-Marts that are near me and in Anchorage to get the quantity we needed. I will be on the lookout for better, bigger towels!

Booked the 5-bed guest room and it was surprisingly roomy for all 5 of us (4 adults, 1 teen). Super clean room and bathroom. Great (included) breakfast, really nice patio, very quiet. Highly recommend.

Chose to stay one night in the B & B on the way to Denali. Most well kept cottages. They have a nice buffet breakfast. There is a laundry on site which we found very helpful. For a few dollars more than renting a room, a cottage with kitchen facilities and a great view can be rented. It is a bit secluded but not off the gird. Easy access to the park highway.

Hello, I'm glad you enjoyed your stay. It was nice to meet you. We designed our Guest Cottages and Luxury Cottages so that each have a view of the Knik Glacier and Chugach and Talkeetna mountain ranges! While we are just a mile from the George Parks Highway (Highway #3), it's a nice, quiet spot, where we sit up on a bluff overlooking the valley. I appreciate you taking time to share a review.

This little place is so easy to get to and once you're there, you're made to feel "at home". Karen greeted us, walked us over to the main inn where we were staying, and explained in detail the property and surrounding area. She sent us to a GREAT place for dinner! Gretchen and Isabella were so personable each morning when we had breakfast. I loved how quiet it was, off the beaten path but not really, but the views got to me even more. This was so much better than a hotel for us. I'd highly recommend a stay here if you're in the area!

Thanks for staying with us, and taking the time to share a review with future travelers! The high school and college girls working with me this summer are just terrific, and I'm glad they enhanced your stay, too. It's our pleasure to serve our guests and make your Alaska vacation special! I love the views here, too. As a girl from Iowa, I can't believe I get to look at a glacier and majestic mountains every day! --Karen

We really enjoyed our stay at the Alaska Garden Gate B & B! They were very accommodating to our needs. The rooms were clean, comfortable, and quiet. My only suggestion is that they get bigger bath towels.

Hi Sherilyn, thank you for staying with us. We are happy to help on guests' requests, so I'm glad you asked and it was something we could do for you! Sorry you found our towels to be smallish. They are "regular" size. It's been a struggle to find better towels in the small number of stores locally. I have had a couple kinds of bigger, more plushy ones, but they proved not color-fast with the combination of our well water and laundry detergent...I enjoy having colored sheets and towels to lend more character and charm to our rooms/cottages/apartments. Also, I don't want to do hotel-white because our home septic system couldn't handle that much bleach, as well as not wanting to add that much chemical to our soils...So it's an ongoing challenge to find towels that our guests love, ones that don't turn funky orangy tones in the laundry, and using processes that don't harm this lovely chunk of land we live on!
