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.

FANTASTIC

  • 5 of 5

Beautiful, spacious, great decor, clean, fantastic view, quiet, well stocked with everything you need and then some, close to town (Palmer & Wasilla). We had a fantastic experience with these accommodations and I highly recommend Moose Comfortable Lodging for your stay. It was above & beyond anything we expected.

Perfect

  • 5 of 5

Our stay in the beautiful area of Palmer, Alaska was topped off with the perfect place to wake up to every morning! The mountain views of course along with the overall property. The Suite itself is laid out brilliantly with a lot of thought put in it as it has everything you need. If I was to go back again to the area in which I hope to I wouldn't hesitate staying here again before looking for another place!

Great for couples/families travelling together

  • 5 of 5

We booked two adjacent suites connected by a door which the hosts left unlocked. It was very convenient for my in-laws and my family, travelling together.

Great place!

  • 5 of 5

Our family of three loved staying at the Salmon Run suite. We were in Palmer for a hockey tournament and these units were comfortable and perfect! We enjoyed having a full kitchen to cook all our meals. The washer and dryer came in really handy too. The high ceilings made the studio feel extra spacious. All the furniture and decorations are high end and good quality. The gas fireplace was adjustable by a thermostat. The large walk in closet allowed us to easily store suitcases. The location is really convenient to the highway and accessing Palmer and Wasilla, but we also appreciated how quiet it was there to sleep. The view of the mountains, woods, and barn was so beautiful. The owner was responsive and great to communicate with. The rental came with good instructions for everything you’d need to know. We would definitely stay here again!
