The cabin we had lacked a certain something and that was comfortable seating. The sitting area is very small and the chairs were not comfortable. The bed and bathroom were adequate but you don't sit for long periods of time in the jacuzzi or on the bed. The breakfast was not all that enticing as it was in the fridge...

Hello Petersens, thank you for taking the time to share a review with future guests. I'm so sorry that it snowed for the first time of the season right before your arrival and that soured your experience. We do encourage winter visitors to request a rental car with studded tires--that helps immensely on roads that have become icy. I feel...

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...

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...

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...

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!...

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...

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.
