Description: The Perch offers you cozy, private cabins, hotel rooms and lodging near Denali National Park. Tucked into the woods and bordered by pristine Carlo Creek, our cabins offer you an Alaskan experience that is truly unique.Tree-top dining at the Perch Restaurant is a wonderful way to begin and end your day. The restaurant is “perched” atop a gravel moraine left by a glacier. Each of our 13 bay windows has a spectacular view of the Alaska range and it's many glaciers. Weather permitting, you can dine on our large deck, or just sit out in the sun and enjoy a cocktail while you wait for dinner.

We were staying at the cabins and thought we'd have a nice breakfast after checking out since our previous two breakfasts consisted of wolfing down protein bars on the bus into the park. This place was wonderful, great service and delicious food. Can't comment on the view as it was raining and cloudy during our meal but I imagine it... More

Stopped here after leaving Cantwell by happenstance. This place has it all, cozy ambiance, great service, delicious food bordering on gourmet! I was there for breakfast but could not help noticing an enticing wine collection. I sat at a window with a lovely view! They have a great back deck with a view of the mountains! I had coffee and...

When you are driving up you might think you took a wrong turn. Keep going and follow the moose plackards and you will find this restaurant. It is set on a hill (the perch) with a beautiful view of the mountains out the windows. The menu wasn't very extensive, but the food was nicely presented and well prepared. We had... More

This was a good dining option in the Denali area, everyone's food was pretty great and the service was excellent. Would definitely eat here again. Note that for 6 or more you would be well advised to make a reservation ahead of time (same day is probably ok, but it's worth calling ahead).

Stayed here for one night in this charming little cabin in a very woodsy area by a creek about 15 miles away from the Park entrance. The Perch has an onsite Bar and Restaurant with great food, drink and service. Would love to go again!

Four of us ate a delicious dinner at the Perch. The owner/host and his wife were friendly, knowledgeable, and well-organized. All of us ordered different dishes, and all of us enjoyed our food, which seemed to have a connection to Polish food. And the windows showed us gorgeous mountains and a lovely deck.

This is a great little place, called The Perch not as in fish but as in perched high up in the tree tops, you quite literally look out of the window at the top of the trees! We had an excellent meal, the crab & sweetcorn soup in duck broth was so tasty as was the caribou with crushed juniper.... More

We ate breakfast at the restaurant, which was slightly pricey but really good. The atmosphere is comparable to a classy mountain resort- wood interior, nice showcase of liquor, with couches as well as tables. I was really impressed with the service- the waiter (owner?) was extremely courteous and attentive.

The cabins are lovely, comfortable and clean. And it's only a few miles down the road to the Denali Wilderness Access Centre. Very convenient. My daughter & I had dinner at the Perch Restaurant. My daughter couldn't find a menu item she wanted (she doesn't eat red meat) and asked Joshua if she could have a salad with a small... More

I stayed here about a week ago and never wanted to leave. This place is secluded, yet set on a beautiful Creek with several other little cabins and an amazing restaurant on site. Joshua and his wife were so welcoming, polite, and helpful. The dinner was absolutely delicious with many unique items to choose from. Josh's brother did breakfast which... More
