Super nice cottages. Very clean and nicely decorated. Definitely recommend for a getaway weekend or guests coming to visit. Enjoyed a very nice weekend away. Very nice views. Great location off of Trunk near the college.

Wife and I stayed in one of the Luxury Cottages for one night prior to flying back to Iowa. The cottage was great and had excellent views. Karen went out of her way to make sure our stay was great. We would definitely go back.

Hi Ray, I'm so glad you found our website and that we had a Luxury Cottage open that night after Christmas, at the end of your vacation! Please do come back and see us again, maybe next time in the summer?? Thanks so much for taking the time to write a review now that you're home!

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".

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...

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. I'm glad you enjoyed our big breakfast buffet. That's a good idea...
