Currant Ridge has spacious, very clean one bedroom cabins with gas grill, large deck, nice kitchen. Everything is very high quality and well maintained. Even the cook wares are the best quality. The Owners also offer recycle options. We can pick vegetables from their garden and green house. And they just tasted great!

McCarthy, Alaska is REMOTE at the end of a 2 hour dirt road. Currant Ridge was a pleasant surprise! Spacious, very modern one bedroom cabins with gas grill, large deck, nice kitchen, and lots of hot water! We only stayed one night, but I wish we could have stayed another day or two just to enjoy the beautiful views and... More

Very clean, spacious one-bedroom cabin. We stayed two nights. Fresh vegetables like kale and lettuce grown on site. Owners were very nice and helpful. Sofa bed very uncomfortable, but the solution is to put the mattress on the floor. Then it was fine.

Cabins are comfortable and fully equipped, nice to be able to pick some veggies to add to dinner. Pleasant quiet area, helpful staff. Road is challenging, but can be done. Do not bring a trailer or large RV.

My friend and I had wanted to experience McCarthy and explore Kennecott Copper Mine for YEARS! We finally made it happen in June of 2016 and we LOVED it! The town is quaint and charming; while the mine's history is incredible! Since I live off-grid in Talkeetna, Alaska, I didn't want to camp out. So we searched for lodging. Currant... More

Arriving on motorcycles, we were very impressed with the quality of the rooms. the road to McCarthy is a challenge if on motorcycles [as well as cars if you are not up too it]. But ... the panoramic views and solitude are the payoff once there.

We enjoyed our stay at Current Ridge. The cabin was very nice with a wonderful kitchen and comfortable beds. It was clean and inviting. There are beautiful views from everywhere on the property. It is charming, modern cabin in a very remote area. I would highly recommend it and would visit again. The owners were very nice and accommodating.

We had an awesome 4-night stay in Currant Ridge. It's the perfect jump-off point for exploring Wrangell-St. Elias. It's located before the McCarthy foot bridge, so you can drive up to the property and park your car next to your cabin. No need to drag your travel gear across the bridge using a wagon. We brought our own bikes and... More

Currant Ridge is comfy and clean with a wonderful view. I was sad we only stayed one night on our way to Seward. If I ever get back I would gladly stay again. Our rooms had nice, big bathrooms which was such a treat on our trip. The breakfast was wonderful and our host very nice. We also enjoyed the... More
