Stayed in Kennicott and McCarthy at three different places and Currant Ridge was the most relaxing and hospitable of them all. Spacious well appointed clean cabins with full private bathrooms and well appointed kitchens with coffee grinder and beans (even decaf, most a appreciated). Surrounded by lush woods and wonderful views of the St Elias/ Wrangel heights. A welcome respite... More

Oh my...how to start! First you have to decide you want to make the drive and have the adventure of Wrangell St. Elias. I say go for it but know what you are in for. It's a long drive. Stop for gas frequently and pack food. But what a reward once you reach McCarthy and Currant Ridge. Unless you want... More

Highly recommend these cabins as a place to stay while visiting McCarthy and surrounding area. The location gives you a chance to experience the Alaskan outdoors. The cabins are sparkling clean and well furnished, and the hosts, Andy and Cynthia, are welcoming and helpful with recommendations of things to do in the area. Sitting on the front porch of the...

We loved Current Ridge. Stayed there mid September towards the end of the season. Totally amazed at the cleanliness, hospitality, and loved having all the amenities of home... So far away. Will be booking another Cabin in 2014.

From park rangers to tour guides to the folks at the McCarthy Saloon - all commented we picked "the place to stay" in the national park area. A friendly vibe from the owners and staff from check-in, to requesting more towels to explaining how we destroyed the cabin coffee pot. Large living spaces with great beds and coach pull-outs, plus... More

We stayed 3 nights and were very impressed with the new cabins, spotlessly cleam and extremely comfortable. Great fully stocked kitchenette with everything you would need to prepare your meals. The small settlement of McCarthy is over the river (no vehicle access) and thus preparing your own meals is a good option. We highly recommend the Currant Ridge cabins Doug... More

The cabins looked brand new and were very spacious. Bedrooms were separate from the main living area and the place was spotless. A full kitchenette with everything you could possibly need to prepare home cooked meals. A great view of Wrangel/St. Elias peaks from the large picture window. Located only a couple of miles from the end-of-road at McCarthy.

We found Currant Ridge through TripAdvisor and make our choice based on the reviews and location on the road side of the foot bridge. The cabins are large, well equipped and clean. The owners (Cynthia and Andy) were great hosts. If you plan to use the Kitchen for dinning (good idea considering the restaurants prices in McCarthy) be sure to... More

We only spent one night here. It is a spacious cabin with a large living/dining/kitchen room; bedroom and large bathroom. It has a lovely deck all around. there is also a barbecue on the deck. (we used our own). We could not eat outside because of the bugs, but had a lovely view from inside too. The cabin is fairly... More

These cabins definitely lived up to expectation. Incredibly spacious. Well equipped. Full bath with showers. Stove. Outdoor grill. Deck with views. What else...oh yeah, the most comfortable bed I have EVER slept on. (Seriously...EVER!!!) They're about 2 miles or so from the footbridge in to McCarthy but it's an easy drive and plenty of parking down near the bridge ($5... More
