I stayed here about a week ago and never wanted to leave. This place is secluded, yet set on a beautiful Creek with several other little cabins and an amazing restaurant on site. Joshua and his wife were so welcoming, polite, and helpful. The dinner...More

Fortunately, our tour guide was aware of this restaurant or we wouldn't have had the treat of dining here. The meal, beer and service were great. And the view from the deck was spectacular. The mosquitoes were enjoying the view and the viewers, as well,...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 first thing that you notice about The Perch is the view from their deck, but the real star is the food. The seafood soup was a tasty start to our meal, and the curry potatoes were a lovely fusion of samosa and potato wedges....More

Alaskan restaurants tend to feature tried and true menus. They're great for a few weeks but a little staid if you stay long. Not so at The Perch, so named for its hilltop location. It's decor is upscale Alaskan rustic with handmade tables featuring tree...More

There is just one sign on the Parks Highway, then posts telling you to follow the moose (clever wooden figures) along a dirt road then around a corner and up a hill. There is a plain building that from the parking lot doesn't look like...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.
