Summer 2014 is booking up quickly!
It’s good for Alaska tourism that so many visitors are making reservations to come to Alaska! But it could throw a wrench in your hopes of a perfect Alaska vacation if you haven’t yet made your plans for lodging and activities around Alaska…*
We love to hear the phone ring or web reservations come in, but this year our openings are filling faster than ever! Never in a dozen years have we been in the position of telling callers in January, “No, I’m sorry, we’re full on that date in June… Would you like a referral to another great B&B?” Unfortunately for you, a lot of our other local B&Bs are filling up quickly, too.
If you’re putting together plans to come to Alaska, it’s in your best interest to act quickly. If you like to choose the amenities and features of your lodging or tour activities, it’s time to make those reservations! If you’re someone who can “roll with it” and take whatever is still open in a couple of months, you’ll be able to find something, but it may not be at your preferred price point or most convenient location or exact room/cabin type you were hoping for.
This is not going to be a good summer to “just wing it” and find lodging day by day as you travel. It is a real possibility that a lot of visitors will be sleeping in their cars for lack of a “room” anywhere close to where they wanted to stop for the night.
Give us a call at (907) 746-2333 to discuss what will work best for you, or you can browse pictures of each cottage and room on our website at https://www.gardengatebnb.com –You can make your reservation through our website, too.
*I’m not an expert on airline changes, but I think I heard there will be a new carrier coming to Anchorage this summer (or perhaps that Southwest Airlines added to their schedule to Anchorage?). That may loosen things up a little by adding some extra capacity, but I anticipate that within two months, I’ll be hearing from guests that they had a tough time getting the exact flight dates they were looking for. –Karen
