Just 13 miles south of the park entrance, The Perch—a cluster of buildings that includes a fine dining restaurant, pizzeria, and 20 cabins—feels a drop more removed from some of the hustle and bustle than other properties. Bay windows overlook a forested hillside, offering a panoramic view of the surrounding Alaska Range foothills. The restaurant serves breakfast and dinner, featuring home-baked breads and desserts along with steak and seafood. Cabins with shared bathhouse
start at $89.
