Nearly 70 years ago, when Alaska was still a territory, legendary pilot Don Sheldon claimed a spectacular 5 acre piece of rock that rises out of Denali’s Ruth Glacier. On that rock outcropping, perched in the middle of the Don Sheldon Amphitheater, sits the rustic, original Mountain House Don built in 1966. Adventure seekers from around the world have returned time and again to this special place.
Now, Don’s children are honoring their parents vision and legacy by building a new luxurious chalet that compliments and the stunning landscape. When complete, the new Sheldon Chalet will stand alone as the only luxury retreat on Denali!
