It may surprise you, but being nestled on a glacier at nearly 6,000 feet can be one of the most cozy and enthralling overnights of your life — just ask anyone who’s stayed at the Sheldon Chalet in Alaska.
This stunning addition to the Austin Collection is a year-round destination — a stunning feat since it’s located just 10 miles from the summit of Denali — and offers a host of authentic Alaskan adventures that begin with your arrival via flightseeing helicopter tour from Talkeetna.
At the Chalet you will find stunning 360-degree views of the surrounding Don Sheldon Amphitheater and Ruth Glacier; five bedrooms; two full bathrooms and a half bath; a private chef preparing the best of Alaskan fare and house beverages; a cozy living room perfect for unwinding; and a viewing deck for peaks, stars, and some of the most consistent sightings of the Aurora Borealis to be found. Two private guides are also available for glacier treks, snowshoeing, and ski touring excursions.
