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.

On my 8th trip to Alaska and my 3rd trip to the Denali area, our group of 4 was told by our lodge host to try The Perch which was about 15 miles from where we were staying in Cantwell.

We had a terrific dinner.

The flash fried brussel sprouts were fantastic.

I had the crispy duck tacos with house pickled cabbage and radish. So much flavor. The duck was generous in portion and perfectly cooked. Loved it.

My brother had the curried halibut. It was the favorite thing he had his entire trip.

My nephew had the house specialty - their homemade egg noodles with reindeer sausage. This was another huge hit.

My father had their burger which was also top notch.

They also had a very nice, reasonably priced wine list and a half dozen local beers on tap.

Wonderful dinner!

This is one of the best restaurants we've ever eaten at. The food is fantastic. The owner and wife made the meal very enjoyable. Highly recommended. Following the moose to the restaurant was a cute idea.

My wife and I just finished a great dinner with good service by the owners in a non touristy atmosphere. This way a pleasant surprise in the Denali area. If you want not to be treated like a tourist - You must give this restaurant a try!

We arrived at the cabin today and what a surprise! The cabin looks neat outside and well laid out inside. Wood furniture and floor plus a second bed in the attic, very cute and kids love it.

A quaint little place in the middle of nowhere. Sitting in a valley between majestic mountains,sites are unbelievable. we were surprised at the quality of the food. Their carribou medallions are to die for,and their sticky ribs are fabulous. Must go when in the area.
