Thanks to the heirs, his father's dream became a reality. What is the difference between the famous Sheldon Chalet Hotel and its competitors?
Alaska from a bird's eye view
Don Sheldon was a high-class pilot who helped to make a complete map of the area of Alaska. He was one of the few professionals who could fly in the harsh cold and land among the winter mountains.
During his next flight, Don noticed a unique place in Denali National Park: it was a relatively small rock where there is a place with a more or less flat surface. It was this place that Sheldon chose, since the territory allowed the plane to land unhindered with the maximum level of safety.
After a while, Don bought her out as a landowner. He got the idea to build a small hotel for tourists among the snow-capped mountains. But, unfortunately, he did not have time to translate his dream into reality: in 1975 he died. After Don's death, his wife practically did not deal with the idea of building a hotel. And after her death in 2014, the heirs of the Sheldons decided to pay tribute to their parents and build a hotel according to her father's idea.
In 2018, Sheldon Chalet opened its doors to guests.
Overnight in a luxury hotel among the mountains
Sheldon Chalet is located at an altitude of almost two thousand meters. Despite its popularity, only ten guests will be able to stay here. The cost of overnight accommodation including transfer to the hotel is $ 2300 per night. By the way, you can get to the famous Sheldon Chalet exclusively by air, by helicopter.
If you decide to visit a hotel on an all-inclusive vacation, then prepare your wallets: three nights at Sheldon Chalet will cost you $ 35,000. Not only meals and transfers will be included here, but also special equipment and excursions in the mountainous area.
Also from entertainment, the owners of the hotel offer visitors real ski marches to the mountains, during which you can explore the gorges and even participate in interesting entertainment, such as lunch in nature, where tables will be made directly from the snow. Also at night, you can admire the Northern Lights from the windows of your room.
The Kitchen of Sheldon Chalet, like the hotel itself, delights visitors. After all, one of the world's famous chefs Dave Thorne works here. It was he who toured with such celebrities as Justin Timberlake, Keith Urban and the musicians of the band Kings of Leon. An exquisite menu will be a pleasant addition for true gourmets: seafood, oyster barbecue, smoked salmon or halibut ... In addition, the menu is rich in meat dishes that come from Alaskan farmers.
