What a gem of a place! The rooms are b-e-a-u-tiful. So clean, so pretty and very well equipped. The grounds are immaculate and it's only a short drive to the bridge into McCarthy. Andy, the owner, is the most accommodating owner on the planet. He let us pick a few amazing veggies from his extensive garden and he let borrow... More

The two of us stayed in one of the cabins for several days during the July 4th celebration. The cabin appeared recently constructed and was beautifully furnished. It had a large deck surrounded by trees. The birds would visit us on the deck and actually eat right out of our hands!

It had been 30 years since we last visited McCarthy and we wanted to stay somewhere special. We could not have been more pleased with Currant Ridge Cabins. The cabins are very comfortable and homey. Andy & Cynthia have done a beautiful job. The owners, Andy & Cynthia seem to have thought of everything and the guest cabins have high... More

Our family of four stayed here in August. The photos of the cabins really don't do them justice. Our cabin was spacious, spotless and comfortable. The deck out back was very pleasant. We had all of the basics to make a quick breakfast in the cabin and be on our way. The setting is perfect and quiet. Tanya at the... More

My boys and I went for a weekend trip to McCarthy and stayed here. The cabin was spacious, beautiful, and super clean. Ours was equipped with a full kitchen and everything you would need to be right at home. There was a gorgeous deck with a grill and table to eat. The Shidner's have an amazing home and garden and...

We stayed at Currant Ridge over the 4th of July, and we could easily have stayed forever. The cabin, referred to as guest houses by the owners, was PERFECT. Spotlessly clean, beautifully appointed, spacious, and by far the best bet for our money in the McCarthy / Kennecott area. We have been staying in this area for many years, and... More

Wow. Very nicely appointed cabin! All the cooking amenities You could ask for short of a microwave, We made meals both days and found everything we needed from new pots and pans, strainers, cutting boards, paper towels, dish towels and even a workable corkscrew. Very easy to navigate and create flawless meals. The large refrigerator held all our groceries and... More

These cabins are fantastic! We booked here hoping to stay with our in-laws, but wound up being just me, my husband, and our baby. It was a little too much cabin for just the 3 of us, but we enjoyed it anyway. :) Spacious living room/kitchen/dining area with sleeper couch, along with big bathroom and cozy bedroom. Everything we needed... More

We stayed at Currant Ridge Cabins for two nights while visiting McCarthy. We are so happy with the choice we made! Currant Ridge is by far the best place to stay in both McCarthy and Kennecott. The cabins were huge! The main room had a large kitchen with a dining table, as well as a pull-out couch and a coffee... More

Our family rented four of these delightful little houses. Could not have been more perfect. The hosts are so gracious. The houses are immaculate and contain everything needed to stay for a day, week or month. The setting is beautiful and it is a great jumping off place to visit McCarthy and Kennecott.
