I was concerned at how well my mom and I were going to be comfortable here. The rooms were beautiful, the food was bountiful and the view was just right. It would have been nice if people were a little more accommodating in the parking strategies.
The cabin we stayed in was very comfortable and contained everything we needed. It was very convenient to Hatcher Pass and the drive there was beautiful with several places to pull over and enjoy the view. Liz went out of her way to make us feel welcome.see to our needs.
My husband and I stayed here July 16 and 17, 2014 and LOVED it! To start off, our cabin was immaculate and in perfect order with everything we needed. We stayed in one of the Sourdough Cabins. It is small, but really does have everything you need to live in. Liz is an excellent host, paying an extraordinary amount of attention to little details that made our stay super comfortable and enjoyable. Liz was also very helpful in giving information about the area such as dining and adventures. We were disappointed that we had not planned staying here more than 2 nights - it really is a beautiful area and a fabulous place to stay!
Lizbeth goes above and beyond to make your stay at Hather Pass B & B unforgettable. She made Alaska feel like home, her kindness of showing us things to do in the area and sharing her homemade muffins. The cabin was so relaxing, clean, and convent. Will recommend anyone traveling to Alaska, stay at Hatxher Pass Bed & Breakfast. We will never forget. Thank You again Lizbeth. Tonya and John.
Liz was awesome, she let us do our own thing and helped us out when we needed it. The cabins are completely private from everybody else and nestled in some trees very nicely. Definitely would recommend to anybody.
This was the perfect place to stay for our weekend in the Wasilla-Palmer area. Super comfortable bed. Very quiet - we didn't hear a sound and slept very well. Enjoyed the amenities. Fully stocked with various breakfast options. Would have given "dining" more stars had their been some fresh fruit. Was pretty much all frozen/processed stuff. We will be staying here again. Winter prices were very reasonable. Beautiful place. Thank you!
We live in Anchorage and wanted a nice weekend getaway that was close. Hatchers Pass B & B was the place. We rented a Sourdough cabin and it was perfect. The cabin was very clean, cozy and comfortable. It was an awesome "glamping trip". The cabin had all the amenities needed. We went into Hatcher's Pass on Saturday and skied the Gold Mint trail, fantastic trail. We will definitely be back. Thanks Liz for everything, had a wonderful stay!
We had such a great time while staying our first time. We will be booking our second time soon. Perfect for relaxing and it's secluded and we enjoyed a nice walk by the creek. Looking forward to another stay! The Ryneski's
I wished that I had found this last year when I had a relative staying at Mat-Su Medical Center. Very clean and the breakfasts were very good and nutritional. They were quiet and private. Karen
Enjoyed our stay at the Hatcher Pass Bed and Breakfast. It was very nice to be able to cook our own meals if we wanted instead of eating out every day. We stayed in the large cabin and it was very clean and included everything we needed to be comfortable. The breakfast that was included was available for us to cook whenever we were ready to eat which was nice if someone wanted to sleep in or eat late.
We only had one night to stay in the Sourdough Cabin, and that is my only complaint. The cabin was adorable and had just enough space and furnishings for a family girls' night. I loved getting to make our own breakfast and we were supplied with more than enough choices. Super-clean and adorable setting. Loved it!!!!
I recently spent 3 nights at the Alaska Garden Gate Bed and Breakfast. It was great. The room was very comfortable, clean and quiet. The property is well maintained. It was a little over an hour drive to Talkeetna where we did some sightseeing tours. It is also a little over an hour’s drive to the Matanuska Glacier. Anchorage is not a far drive either. So, the B&B is located in an area where you can easily travel to sites on very scenic roads. The host, Karen, could not have been more accommodating. She has plenty of suggestions for things to do while you’re there. Breakfast, which was prepared fresh at the B&B, was left in the refrigerator in the room each afternoon so that you had it for the following morning. This way you are able to heat and eat whenever you’d like! Some days omelets and muffins, some days quiche and banana bread. All were delicious! The room had a coffee maker too and fresh ground coffee and filters all ready to go. I felt like I was at home, with none of the work! Stay at this place, you will not be disappointed!
We really enjoyed our 2 nights at this fantastic B&B. Our cabin was nicely decorated, homely & very comfortable. We loved being able to chose and prepare our own breakfast from what was supplied. Good location for exploring the breathtaking Hatchers Pass. Highly recommended!
A perfectly located little private place with great warmth and hospitality. Will def be back staying here again. LOVED IT!!!! Out of the few cabins we stayed at over the 2 week period, the only place that really left a few things for us to munch on/use for making breakfast. Loved that it was just right there.
Nos alojamos en el edificio de la recepción. muy limpio aunque algo ruidoso. Se escuchan los pasos del piso de arriba. No tiene cortinas con lo que hay mucha luz en la habitación. desayuno escaso. Cocina completamente equipada. Si tuviera que volver a alojarme lo haría sin duda
I've been to the Garden Gate B&B twice now and very much enjoyed my stay each time. It is an especially good location (at a good price) if you are interest in sightseeing places North of Anchorage in the Mutsu area.
The room was large and had lots of country charm. The bed was comfy and relaxing after a long day of traveling. Could not use the fireplace as it was too warm. While there, Palmer was having a heat wave! A continental breakfast was in the refrigerator (Quiche) to be heated the following morning. We didn't care for it, as it had spinach in it, but we ate the bread, banana, and drank the orange juice. Karen, the innkeeper, was very nice and helpful. She also suggested a great place to eat and have dinner. It's called The Noisy Goose I believe. A lot of the locals go there and the food is delicious. DH had the Halibut fish & chips, and thought it the best he had in a long time.
They are conveniently located near major roads. We were worried about noise at first but it did not turn out to be a problem at all. Our room was in the lower level of the main house and was well appointed with everything you might need. The wifi worked. We used the oven to heat up the quiche we were provided for breakfast. It does not have a sit down breakfast spread but the provided quiche, bread, yogurt, banana and juice was fine for us. We would stay again if we were near Palmer.
We enjoyed our stay at the Hatcher Pass B&B. The cabin was clean, well-equipped and very quiet. Check-in was a snap, and we had privacy not usually available at a B&B. We definitely recommend it and will stay there again. A dining rating really doesn't apply because food is provided and the guest prepares his/her own meal.
We loved our stay in Hatcher Pass B &B. Liz was so generous with her knowledge of the area, our cabin was clean and comfortable and the breakfast provided was lovely. We loved being able to have access to a microwave, fridge and hot plate- we were tired after hiking and we liked having the option to eat at the cabin instead of going out. The area is beautiful with many lovely hikes available.
We can HIGHLY recommend, The Alaska Garden Gate B & B and cottages, which are a short drive from Palmer, in a very pleasent garden setting, with a great view of the Chugach mountains, we had the Evergreen Retreat, and could not have been more pleased or comfortable, - two bedrooms, and a lounge which has a couch, TV, and 2 big windows for natural light, The bathroom is well set up, and has spare towels, a substantial breakfast is supplied in your cottage, and unlike some hotels, the parking and WiFi are FREE. Thanks Karen and Camille, our stay at your property, made our 17th anniversary, and our first visit to Alaska a very special and memorable one. R and M - Australia.
Great stay at Garden Gate. Loved the breakfast in our cottage concept. Eat on your schedule worked great as we are NOT early risers. The food was very good. The bed, which we believe is most important was very comfortable...liked the location to Wasilla as we were in town to visit a dear friend. We found Anchorage to be a short 40 min drive . Thanks to Karen you are a great host and exceeded our expectations in every way at the Garden Gate.
This was a very nice duplex cottage, quiet, full kitchen, comfortable beds, nice shower and bathroom, view of Knik Glacier from our window. We recommend this place highly if you are staying in the Palmer area.
