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.

“swanky dining (for Denali)”
Reviewed 24 August 2014

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).

“Just perfect”
Reviewed 23 August 2014

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!

“Great dinner at the Perch”
Reviewed 21 August 2014

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.

“Something different”
Reviewed 20 August 2014

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. Made a real change for the steak and burger offerings elsewhere. Our host was friendly and chatty and we had a really enjoyable evening. Would highly recommend.

“Restaurant review”
Reviewed 20 August 2014 via mobile

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.
