Sheldon Chalet / Denali, Alaska


The site may be extreme, but the Sheldon Chalet offers a sweet haven in an icy landscape. At 1,800m in elevation, the mountain guest house is secured to a nunatak — an exposed rocky outcropping — surrounded by a glacier, and about 16km from the summit of Denali. You can only get there by plane. Family operated, the adventure retreat has a unique hexagonal design dreamed up in the 1960s by the owners’ parents, but built in 2017 with more modern amenities — including an adjacent observation deck that doubles as a helipad — via Curbed
