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.

It's in the little things

  • 5 of 5

As soon as my husband and I walked into the Salmon Run, we felt at home. The quality furnishings are comfortable, and they took great care to little touches, like the cute pillows and great art. We loved the salmon with the lure in its mouth that was connectedto the fishing pole. They thougt of everything to pass time by providing books to read,puzzles to put together, and board games to play. Johnnie and Donna are very friendly and accommodating, and I can't wait to go back. Thank you Johnnie and Donna for your flexibility when our plans changed, and your caring and thougtfulness.- The Bells

Amazing place to stay in Palmer Alaska!

  • 5 of 5

My family and I decided to go to Alaska to visit my brother. When we walked in the room we immediately felt at home. There wasn't one thing we could think of that we needed, Donna and Johnnie had really thought of every comfort of home and then some. The room was extremely clean and the decor was just what I would expect when I think of Alaska. The grounds were beautiful as well. They had a fire pit and a play area for kids. The view was so beautiful to wake up to every morning. I would recommend this place to anyone and everyone. Thank you for a beautiful place to have our family gather together and enjoy each other.

The rooms we even better than advertised and my family had an awesome time. Location was very close for the Alaska State Fair and there were several nearby lakes where we went fishing. I would stay here again for sure.

My new favorite place.

  • 5 of 5

I travel a lot and review a lot of places. This is one of those places that just astounds you with all that was taken into consideration in making your stay pleasant. The decoration of the unit it wonderful, warm and cozy with a lovely fireplace. Everything is top quality from the kitchen cabinets to the appliances to the towels and bedding. The photos look nice but don't even come close to telling you how absolutely lovely these units are. You can sit at the dining area table or on the back porch and enjoy a lovely view of the mountain range. The porch has a table and chairs and a great grill for your steaks or fish. The owners, Donna & Johnny and very responsive to all your communications.

Perfect in every way!

  • 5 of 5

This rental exceeded our expectations! The rental is clean, very well stocked with absolutely everything we needed, the backyard is a child's paradise- playground equipment, a meadow, etc. It was quiet, within a 10 minute drive to downtown Palmer. I would stay here again in a heartbeat! It is a beautiful rental!!! They even left us muffins, chocolates, coffee and creamer and there are basic condiments.
