Ridgetop Cabins
Ranked #5 of 8 Healy B&B and Inns
Reviewed July 8, 2012

Five of us (88 year old grandpa, 2 teens and parents) enjoyed Cabin 6 for 3 days. We slept wonderfully with the black-out blinds and enjoyed the home-baked breads by Joyce in the mornings. Thanks to her recommends, we booked a wonderful trip into the park (saw 17 grizzlies!) and had a fun day in Fairbanks. Loved the BBQ and picnic table pavilion on the hill and the lovely views. Spotlessly clean cabin with all the necessities for meals "at home". We will be back!!

We stayed 3 nights in cabin 6, a 2 bedroom cabin. It was perfect for the 6 of us. We even used their pavilion and grills to cook our dinner. The cabin had a small table, a refrigerator and a microwave. The 2 boys with us slept on a futon in the living room. Only 1 bathroom for the 6 of us, but that worked out ok. Breakfast, up at the owners home was good - cereal, juice, coffee, tea, milk, hot chocolate, packaged sweet rolls. yogurt, and fruit. The cabins are about a mile up a steep gravel drive off the mail road. The road had washed out the week before we were there, so it wasn't in real good shape and we were a little concerned about getting in and out each day. That, and the the distance from Denali were the only downsides. We enjoyed our stay and would give it a very good rating except for the condition of the drive.

We stayed in cabin 3 for three nights September 2011. It was about 20 minutes away from Denali National Park and a much better option than lodges at the entrance of the park (and much cheaper!) It was the cleanest place that we stayed in Alaska! The owners, Joyce and John were great, there when we needed them, but otherwise we had complete privacy. Great for us. They provide breakfast and advice about the park. The road up was a little rough, but it's Alaska, that is part of the adventure!

We had an SUV and experienced no difficulty on the one mile road back to the cabins. I had read reviews and knew to expect basic. No TV which was fine with us. There is a microwave and coffeemaker in the cabin. Black out shades for light summer nights. When closing these, we noticed the window track was full of bugs - flies and I don't know what else because I quit looking. Carpet & flooring may have been there since the cabin was constructed. The towels had seen much better days and the floor mat was actually dingy. Breakfast is instant - oatmeal, prepackaged muffins & danish, a couple cold cereals & some bananas that would have made wonderful banana bread. Coffee and tea, juice assortment and yogurt in the fridge under the coffee counter. The request is to turn off the heat when you leave for the day and we complied. When we returned that night, it took quite awhile to heat the room and we in fact crawled into bed to get warm. Use the bathroom heater to speed up the process. I did like walking to breakfast on a beautiful morning with the moon still above. This property is for sale, not sure how long it has been, so things may change in the future. I know it is now closed for the season. Maybe our "basic" expectations were a little higher.

Room Tip: Cabins 1 and 2 are the oldest.

We stayed 3 nights at Ridgetop cabins, family of four. We stayed in a two bedroom cabin. The cabin was very comfortable, clean, and everything that we needed and desired. Our hosts, Joyce and John were extremely helpful and pleasant. The cabins are located in an unbelievably beautiful location. When we travel back to the Healy Alaska again, we would stay there again.

Room Tip: No tv, so do not expect to sit and watch tv all day.

Very nice and clean cabins. Only 20 min to get to the park. Joyce is very knowledgeable about the area and park. We had a wonderful time. I would get gas and pack enough snacks 100 miles before getting to the park area. They cost 2-3 times more.

we stayed here during our tour of denali. it is a little out of the way but is way cheaper than the cabins around the park. Joyce is very nice and helpful. There is cereal and coffee each morning. the cabins dont have tvs are a lot of amneties but you are in alaska in a beautiful area, not there to watch tv.

we enjoyed our stay. it was very comfortable and reasonably priced. I would stay here again. just remember that it is a little further north from the entrance to the park and is without a lot of amneties but again , you arent there for the tv.
