We reserved the 2 bedroom/2 bath apartment for a few nights. It was very clean and suited our needs quite satisfactorily. Beds were quite comfortable. Breakfast was ok... We have had better breakfasts at B&B's, but it worked. Property is well-kept. Owner is polite and prompt to answer questions. There is a washer and dryer on the property - but...

Thanks for taking the time to share a review with future guests. Our guest laundry room is new so there's only been one price in there--sorry if any communications were confused in that area! I'm glad you enjoyed our new Two Bedroom Two Bathroom Apartment!

We actually stayed there twice, one night each, on our trip up to Denali and back. Both times our reserved room had some issue and were given an upgrade. First we were given another cottage and the second stay we were given a large apartment under the office. Both were very nice. The breakfast was very good, the rooms very...

My wife and I stayed for 2 nights, August 20 and 21, 2015. The cabins were perfect. Loved the bedroom and bath. Kitchen was just right. The view out of the windows was breathless. Palmer is a lovely community. Karen was the perfect host. Would stay again and longer.

It was so nice to have you stay with us! Thanks for writing a review about your stay in August. In August, when the sun is starting to "set" during hours when people are still awake, it makes for such beautiful sunsets against the mountains out our windows! We're glad you enjoyed the views!

Our visit here was a one night stay. Karen, the owner met us as soon as we got there. She was very friendly and welcoming, gave us a recommendation for a restaurant which we did use. The room was clean, the bathroom was extremely large, but the bed was one of those bunk bed deals with a queen on bottom...

Thank you taking the time to write a review after your stay with us! You're right, the cheapest room is not always the best fit for everyone! Our Inn rooms each have the Queen bed with a bunk above, against the wall, but all our other choices--apartments, cottages, etc,--all have "regular" bedrooms with a Queen or King bed with bedside...

The wasilla and palmer area have very few options for lodging. We dediced on the garden gate b&b. What a great decidion. It is a little hidden but what a beautiful property. The buildings and grounds are well maintained. That is hard to do in alaska. The owner checked us in, walked us to the room and showed us how...

I will start by saying-- I will stay again. Having said that, there were things that were disappointing. 1) I did not have a TV in my bedroom. You have to rent a deluxe cottage and pay extra. 2) in the welcome letter, it states laundry is $5.00 per load. Not so, $8.00 / load. 3) there were no cleaning...

Hi Devonne, nice to have you here! Yes, guests who want the option of a TV in the bedroom as well as their living room should choose either a Luxury Cottage or our new Two Bedroom/Two Bathroom Apartment. These are our best places, with the most amenities. We had thought we'd price the coin-operated washers and dryers in our new...

My view of a true bed and breakfast is someone's home that is rented for profit. This is not that type of property. I don't mean that in a negative manner, but just want to set expectations. Overall we loved this property and our short one night stay. The room was very clean, but unique. We stayed in the multi...

You're right, it's hard to find the right words to describe what we are becoming. We started with just a few B&B bedrooms in our house but have grown a lot in 13 years! While it doesn't sound very exciting to invite guests, "Come to Our Low Density Motel!" you describe it accurately -- We live here, in the main...

The garden of the place is nice. But the room I stayed in was not. The room was permeated with animal smell and I had to open the window to let the fresh air in. The furnishing in the room was minimal. I had a bunk bed. The chair in front of the desk had a shaggy crushing. A buffet...

Ming Ming, I think there was a miscommunication and I'm sorry you didn't feel welcome. I felt like I knew you after the several times we talked by phone ahead of your stay! Usually we go out of our way to accommodate special requests but that morning, I had cleared away a lot of the buffet foods at 9:30 because...

The accommodations were very clean and well appointed. Perfect spot to stay while enroute to various activities. Daily breakfast was a great start to the day. Only improvement was to have a little more sitting room for evening talks with family.
