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.

Best place to stay in the valley...maybe in Alaska
This was my third time staying with Johnnie and Donna. Our family of eight stayed for an extended time in 2017, and I have stayed twice on my own. As a homeschooling mama to six children, the ability to get away for a few days to rest and plan and pray is such a gift, and this property is the PERFECT location for it.
-Beautiful serene setting
-Immaculately clean lodging
-The utmost thought given to amenities and extras
I am not one to love staying on my own, but my husband and I both feel 100% confident I am safe here, and the owners are extremely attentive and so generous. As a local, this is my #1 recommendation for a place to stay in the valley.
Thank you, Johnnie and Donna, for another perfect stay!
Home away from home!
This was our first visit to Alaska. We brought our four-year-old and eight-year-old children with us and this was the best they have ever slept on vacation! We are talking 11 to 12 hours each. We travel all over North America, and this was the first place that felt like home. From a washing machine to a fully supplied kitchen of appliances, I only wish we could’ve stayed longer. You were in a central location to all of the things that we had come to Alaska to do. Thank you for supplying such a great place!
Beautifu, comfortable, well equipped property.
One of the nicest places we have ever stayed. Donna had all the comforts of home. Kitchen was so well stocked, one could cook or snack. She had muffins, popcorn, coffee, creamer, tea, etc. for guests. This was our 2nd stay and if we go back to Alaska, we will definitely stay here again.
We loved the Lazy Bear cabin! It was very comfortable and perfect! Our friends staying at another property were very jealous! He he! Great kitchen and very nice shower!! Beautiful view outside too! Super cute place! Can't wait to come back!!
