My wife and I have been to Gate Creek many times. It's absolutely the best take off point for any adventure in and around Denali. The views are amazing, if not the best of the Alaska range. Suzi always makes us feel at home and goes well out of her way to make sure we're comfy.

We were pleasantly surprised by the very comfortable two bedroom log cabin. The kitchen, dining room, and living room were large and well furnished. The welcoming and comfy bedrooms and quiet surroundings made for excellent sleeping. The cabin overlooked a small lake with a paddle boat and canoe for guest use, where we paddled with loons and ducks. Complete kitchen... More

Stayed our last 2 nights in Alaska at Gate Creek. The cabin -Denali- was excellent. More then enough room for 4 people. Comfortable, clean and well equipped-- Coffee, glasses, plates, pans and plenty of towels. The property has a lot of space with cabins spread out, so you don't hear or see anyone unless you want too. Lake with boats... More
