Testimonials

Tim & Cara, Mesa, Arizona

We have never been to a more beautiful place in all our lives! We loved everything about our stay at Gate Creek Cabins. Everything was perfect--the cabin, the lawn and flower beds, the beauty of the whole area and the weather! The canoes and kayaks were so much fun for the whole family. It was worth it to come all this way! Thank you Duane & Sandy!

Jan & Mike, Athelstone, South Australia

Wonderful views of Mt. McKinley from Petersville Road, kayaking on the lake, even a moose sighting. We have had a great, relaxing time here with our hospitable hosts, Sandy & Duane.
Thanks for the campfire and the tasty 'smores'!!.

Jeanne & Paul, Butte, Alaska

The minute we walked in we wanted to move in. Born and raised in this great state, we have been to other friends' fishing cabins and lodges. Sorry, friends, this one beats yours by far! We are already planning another trip and haven't even gotten on our snow machines to play yet. We love how private this cabin is and right on the lake. I am sure other cabins are just as nice. The owners are great, and have everything you could want in a getaway playground.

Penny & Mark, Jonesville, Michigan

We are from Michigan and decided to take a cruise for our 5th anniversary. So we cruised up from Vancouver, BC on the Norwegian Cruise Line northbound to Whittier, Alaska on the Inside Passage. What beautiful sites we saw! Then, decided to spend a couple of days in Alaska before going back home. I am so glad we did. This is a wonderful place to stay at. It was so quiet and peaceful. As I got up our last day here, I looked out the window and there stood a moose looking back at me. Wow! I loved staying here and would pack my bags and move here in a heartbeat! We got to see moose, bear, and a red fox while here. I am so glad I found this place online! I hope to come back again some day.
P.S. I just wished I would have stayed longer!!

Anita & Alfred, Tschindel, Switzerland

This was so far the most beautiful and quiet place we stayed on our trip through Alaska. Thank you so much for sharing this hidden gem with us.
