At 6,000 feet in elevation, a five star Sheldon Chalet is as unique as the surroundings are breathtaking

The Sheldon Chalet is perched on a nunatak 6,000 ft above the Don Sheldon Amphitheater, ten miles from the summit of Denali National Park in Alaska. Located on five private acres, the Sheldon Chalet sleeps up to ten guests in five bedrooms featuring unique panoramas of the Alaska Range from every angle.

The longtime dream of Don and Roberta Sheldon, homesteaders who claimed the land in the mid-50s, become a reality when Robert Sheldon, his wife Marne and sister Kate have build the Sheldon Chalet. Anchored deep into the granite, iron and titanium of the Sheldon Nunatak, the Sheldon Chalet is not only a luxury destination – with running water, electricity, generous heat, and world-class food – but it is an engineering marvel.
