About Donna Davis
Johnnie and Donna came from the deep South, so southern hospitality is a part of who they are. Like other young couples, they came to Alaska seeking an adventure, reared their family, and now enjoy their grandchildren. Johnnie has worked in the Information Technology department of the local electric cooperative for over 36 years. Donna worked as an Administrative Director of the local community senior center, managed an adult day care program for the frail and elderly in a home-based business for 15 years, and recently retired. Now they are ready for their next adventure, sharing their home and hosting families so others can enjoy their own Alaskan adventure.
Why Donna Davis chose Gateway
Palmer is a small community town, populated by colonists in the 1930s, with a lot of history that is still remembered and celebrated with Colony Day events in June and December. Combine the small community atmosphere with the breathtaking beauty of the Matanuska-Susitna Valley surrounded by mountains; add the long days of summer that produce the most extraordinary flowers and vegetables highly admired at the Alaska State Fair in late August; and top it off with all the fishing, hunting, 4 wheeling, snow machining, cross-country skiing, wildlife viewing in your front and back yard. We have been blessed to have found our small piece of the Last Frontier.
What makes this Lodge unique
Location, location, location! Moose Comfortable Vacation Rentals is located on over 3 acres of Alaska wilderness, surrounded by spectacular panoramic views of the Chugach Mountain Range, Pioneer Peak, and the Knik Glacier. Canoe Lake (stocked with fish) is within walking distance and just a bit further is the Kepler-Bradley Lake State Recreation Reserve that includes miles of well-maintained and marked wilderness trails that weave among 13 lakes with stunning mountain views along the way. We border the Palmer Hay Flats State Game Refuge which is rich with wildlife, moose, wolf, beaver, etc., salmon streams, nesting eagles along with other birds of prey, water fowl and migratory birds. Yet, just a few miles away you will find great restaurants, fun shopping, emergency clinics, and a hospital. And the city of Anchorage, with all of its attractions, is only 35 miles away.

This is my second time staying at this property and hopefully not the last! Everything was exactly as listed online.
This is a very nice place. The unit is clean, quiet, comfortable and nicely appointed. It was our second stay. The Christmas tree and decorations were a very nice touch and greatly appreciated.
This property was amazing. Just we needed and they had EVERYTHING you need!
Attention to Detail!
One of the nicest units I’ve stayed in! Immaculately well kept. Spotlessly clean. Delightfully decorated. Warm, comfy, quiet. Equipped with everything I needed and more.
This was a wonderful place. It was very comfortable and super clean. The bed was the best. We even slept until 8:30 one morning and that never happens. Johnnie and Donna were very helpful with suggestions for dining and things to do. We would definitely stay again. Thanks
Quiet Apartment Setting In The Forest
We had a very nice stay at this property. However, we were wanting something a bit more private. Nevertheless, the accommodation was clean and nicely appointed. The owner was very courteous and quick to respond to questions and instructions. The only "complaint", so to speak, was the bed mattress. It's in desperate need of replacement. Otherwise, everything was great.
When we first read the Hardy’s review, we were surprised at the complaint about the mattress. We have never had a negative comment about the bed. In fact, many of our guests have commented on how comfortable it was. However, we checked it out ourselves and found it was “sinking” in the middle 😊�.
We have just purchased a brand new mattress, and want to thank the Hardy’s for bringing it to our attention. Maybe they will stay with us again and be able to provide an updated review.
To the Hardy’s, thank you for the 5 star review, even after your experience with the bed. We appreciated it.
Sincerely, Donna and Johnnie
