Alaska Garden Gate

B&B and Cottages

A Bed and Breakfast in Alaska, Between Palmer and Wasilla

We invite you to stay with us at Alaska Garden Gate B&B and Cottages, a bed and breakfast between Wasilla and Palmer, just 35 miles north of Anchorage, Alaska. Set on 10 acres, lots of open space and fresh air abound, around  our small “village” of 20 cottages, apartments, and rooms to suit visitors from couples to families to business travelers. Our guests can choose a private cottage with amazing mountain views, economical apartments, or simple bedrooms with private bathrooms. As an alternative to an Anchorage hotel, we are a  pet-friendly inn with complimentary breakfast baskets, delivered daily to your fridge.

The B&B is set on 10 acres in the country, with flower gardens, wildflowers and wild berries, where you can stroll the pathways and kids can play on the lawns. You’ll be in awe of the surrounding Talkeetna and Chugach mountains with 270-degree panoramic views. Our outstanding views of the mountains and Knik Glacier are the best views of any lodging within 100 miles!

Alaska Garden Gate Bed and Breakfast is conveniently located near exciting activities and things to do in Palmer, AK. Within minutes, you can explore the abandoned gold mine at Independence Mine State Park, shop Downtown Palmer’s artisan boutiques, fish for salmon, take a ride pulled by Iditarod dogs, and even trek on the Matanuska Glacier! Nearby Palmer offers ATV adventures to the Knik Glacier, a reindeer farm and musk ox farm. Easy day trips take you to flightseeing from Talkeetna, whale-watching from Seward, and tundra wildlife tours in Denali National Park. Make our Palmer B&B your home away from home while you explore Alaska on day-trips in all directions. Unpack once and save time finding new lodging each day.

After a day of touring and adventures, relax at our peaceful retreat, with comfortable King and Queen size beds, private entrances, warm fireplaces, full kitchens and living rooms, and amenities like jetted tubs and plush feather duvets in some of our choices. Rest assured that we are following best practices for enhanced sanitizing during this time of COVID-19.

At Alaska Garden Gate B&B and Cottages, in past years we were well-known for our delicious buffet breakfast. In 2021, we will be delivering continental breakfast baskets to each set of guests. Enjoy a hearty continental breakfast basket in your kitchen. Our large deck next to the Dining Hall is open for you to bring your breakfast basket there, if you’d like to be around your fellow B&B guests while keeping social distance in the fresh morning air. Or, if you’re not feeling chatty, your cottage’s table can be your breakfast spot with a view. Our return guests will recognize several popular dishes from our buffet breakfast in the breakfast baskets: we’re still making our famous banana bread, and our quiches and egg bakes are a delicious starter to the morning. Individual servings will be wrapped from our kitchen and delivered to your fridge with yogurt, oatmeal and fresh fruit. Each of our cottages and apartments has coffee, tea, sugar and creamer provided for your morning perk-up. While the baskets will have a set list of items each day, vegetarian, dairy- and gluten-free options are available, by letting us know when you place your reservation. Our aim is to minimize handling of your breakfast foods from our oven to your basket, and to maintain strict food safety measures during these troubling times of COVID-19.

Whether you’re coming to celebrate and want a luxurious getaway with fireplace and jetted tub, traveling with children and relatives and need space to relax as a family, or just need something clean and comfortable when you stop through, we have it all. Contact us today; browse our wide selection of rooms and cottages, and book the best place to stay during your Alaska vacation.
