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...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...More

We had got so used to unimaginative fried Alaskan food that eating here came as such a shock. The menu had great variety and was cooked to perfection. The reputation is obviously widening as reservation is definitely recommended. This place gets our recommendation. Great food,...More

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.
