Denali National Park, Alaska
Perched on an isolated nunataq above the Don Sheldon Amphitheatre, the singular Sheldon Chalet is a tantalizing ten miles from the summit of Denali. A feat of engineering as much as it is an ultra-luxe destination, the chalet is a chance to vacation on a glacier, with expert guides bringing you up close and personal with the experiential possibilities.
Why we love it
The very embodiment of remote, the Sheldon Chalet is a mountaintop eyrie of luxury and dramatic isolation atop the Ruth Glacier in the heart of Denali National Park.
The history is almost as inspiring as the views of the Don Sheldon Amphitheatre. Visit the historic Mountain House with your guide (even staying overnight) and dine on a picnic of Alaskan delicacies as they describe every remarkable aspect of this extraordinary place and its surrounds.
Perched on a rocky outcrop encircled by the compacted ice of the Ruth Glacier, the Sheldon Chalet is an exploration experience like no other. From this place atop the world, you’ll feel like you can reach up and run your fingers through the aurora borealis.
With only the wind whirling around the peaks, the silence is refreshing and profound. Feel as though you have merged with the landscape before retreating into the luxurious home comforts that the chalet offers.
WHAT MAKES THIS HOTEL UNIQUE?
Family-owned by the pioneering Sheldon’s, this uniquely located chalet has five comfortable double rooms—with two shared bathrooms— furnished with furs and blankets for added coziness. The downstairs communal living space is bright, spacious, and centered around a roaring fire.
The Alaskan-sourced dining is exceptional, with fresh greens grown in a micro greenhouse. Expect oysters, halibut, and king crab with fine wines to savor while you look out at the awe-inspiring views. An observation deck juts from the main space offering ample opportunities to witness some of the clearest skies in the world and the majestic light show of the aurora borealis.
Sleeps up to 10 with two shared bathrooms
Guided outings into the mountain wilderness
