February Press Coverage Highlights: Sheldon Chalet Makes a Splash in the Media

February yielded a lot of great press coverage for the JG Black Book Collection, and the announcement of our newest partner, the Sheldon Chalet in Alaska, generated a lot of buzz in particular! Located in the middle of a glacier in Denali National Park and only accessible by helicopter, this $2,300 a night property is truly the height of luxury and not to be missed.

With so much remarkable coverage obtained by JG’s public relations team, it was hard to select just a few articles that highlighted exactly what makes Sheldon Chalet so special. Below you’ll find some of the most powerful quotes from our favorite editorials!



Bloomberg Pursuits, “Denali National Park Welcomes Its First (and Last) Luxury Hotel” by Nikki Ekstein

“Sheldon Glacier is an upgraded vision of that decades-old vision. Guests arrive via helicopter—a ride that takes them zooming through narrow slots in the surrounding canyons—and are greeted with Champagne and Alaska seafood hors d’oeuvres. ‘It’s extravaganza upon arrival,’ says Marne (Sheldon).”


Telegraph, “Incredible Remote Chalets Where You Can Hide Out for the Rest of Winter

From its vantage point at 1,800m 360-degree windows provide unbeatable views of Alaskan peaks, and with no phone signal or internet connection guests here have all the time in the world to enjoy activities such as heliskiing, snow cave expeditions and snowmobiling.”

“Adventurers can now experience Alaska’s Denali National Park without sacrificing comforts like a fireplace, sauna, or great wines. The late Alaskan bush pilot Don Sheldon dreamed of building a cabin on the park’s border. Fifty years later, his children have realized his vision with Sheldon Chalet.



Forbes, “Sleep In The Middle Of A Glacier At This Stunning New Hotel In Alaska” by Jim Dobson

“The Sheldon Chalet is only accessible by air. Part of the experience of staying at the chalet is the flightseeing adventure from Anchorage or Talkeetna.” 


Lonely Planet, “Watch the Northern Lights From This Luxury Chalet on an Alaskan Glacier” by James Martin

“(The guests’) senses begin to pick up on the geophysical events, whether they be thundering avalanches echoing across the reaches of the 35-square-mile amphitheater, vibrant Aurora and meteor watching benefitting from our zero light pollution, or watching a weather squall come in creating ground blizzards with snow shooting up into the air around and through our grated decking,’ Robert Sheldon said.”


Metro UK, “Incredible Hotel Lets You Sleep in the Middle of a Glacier” by Ellen Scott

“Think helicopter tours, sledding, snow cave exploration, hiking, skiing, taking a dip in hot springs, mountain biking, and building igloos.”



Country Living UK, “This New Chalet in Alaska Allows You to Sleep in the Middle of a Glacier, Kept Warm by a Blazing Log Fire” by Katie Riodarn

As you can imagine it’s very snowy and cold up there, but the chalet itself is cosy and snug – and the views are out of this world. The many large windows and observation deck offer sweeping panoramas of the Alaska Range.”


The Observer, “How to Spend $10,000 a Day On Your Next Ski Trip” by Brandon Perlman

“The Sheldon Chalet is the Alaskan wilderness at its most luxe.”


Seattle Times, “15 Hotels With Fresh Ideas, From Shanghai to Denali” by Elaine Glusac

“One might argue that any shelter in the Alaska wilderness is a luxury. But travelers to the Denali region will have a true luxury lodging option when the Sheldon Chalet opens in February.



Hotel Design, “Spend the Night in This Stylish and Darling Alaskan Hotel in a Glacier” by Adam Bloodworth

Boasting comfort, warmth and luxury where it was thought to be impossible, the stunning property features a light wooden exterior influenced by the ski chalets of mountainous towns, plenty of generous windows and doors to allow the natural light in, and a traditional Alpine feel interior.”
