Love this place. Nice cottages, clean, great breakfast, easy access. The owner was great. I had my dogs with me for an agility trial. I would highly recommend these cottages to all who need a great place to stay. Book in advance, get there early.

We love our "dog people!" Thanks for staying with us again and again as you come to the Mat-Su Valley! We do book up quickly, so we advise guests to call as early as you know your plans for best selection of rooms/cottages.

Stayed at the Garden Gate B&B with my daughter and pooch, and had a wonderful experience. We were in one of the guest cottages that included a kitchenette and free-wifi. The grounds are beautiful with lovely views to take in. The rooms are simple, yet clean and very comfortable. Centrally located to all the Valley has to offer. Thanks for...

We stayed in the luxury king cottage for a romantic mini-vacation. Everything, except for the bedroom TV, worked properly (it was too late to phone anyone by the time I learned about the bedroom TV and honestly, not that important). The fake fireplace was very relaxing. The breakfast was fresh fruit, yogurt, oatmeal, reindeer sausage, banana pancakes, cranberry bread and...

Hello! I'm so glad you got the romantic getaway you were hoping for! Thank you for taking the time to write a review and post pictures of the view you from your cottage, too! It's true, we don't do a fancy Victorian-type breakfast. Ours is more of a home-style buffet. Many of our return guests remember when I used to...

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...

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...

These are newer cabins. Priced well. Breakfast was ok but not what I expected in a B&B . Instant oatmeal, Jimmy dean microwave sandwich,plastic bottle juice. All in all it was fine for us. 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...

That's so awesome that you came to Alaska to take part in the run with the reindeer! Thanks for staying with us. I'm so sorry I wasn't awake to get your 11 pm text about the code for the laundry door. We don't have staff who stay up all night, and I go to bed at 10 pm. The code...

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. We stayed for one night in one luxury cottage and one guest cottage and were delighted with both. They offered excellent views of the mountains, ample sunlight, and just the...

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.

Thank YOU for supporting our fantastic Mat-Su Miners baseball team! The summer league that brings in great college players from all over the US gives us locals the chance to see really great talent, lots of times before they go pro. We're glad to help the team succeed and then glad too to see the parents and families of the...

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.

We had a great stay for a week here over the Christmas Holidays. I highly recommend renting a cabin. These are two room units on a bluff with a fantastic view of the Palmer valley.
