may be the world’s most spectacularly situated cabin. Perched on a 4.9 acre rock and ice covered outcrop located at the 5,800 foot level, in the middle of the Don Sheldon Amphitheater just above the Ruth Gorge, it is surrounded on all sides by towering granite walls and glaciers flowing off the flanks of Denali, less than 10 miles away. It’s used primarily from March through October by photographers, skiiers, mountaineers, and anyone who wants to get far away from the world.

The contemporary, comfortable home offers a chance to unwind with its panoramic views of the rugged Southern Oregon Coastline.

Between their international jobs and love of travel, they carefully crafted each square inch with local flare and worldly treasures.

With just a coconut tree or two between your bed and our white-sand beach in Matungou Bay, it is a truly tropical island experience.

From the homemade quilts to the locally crafted barstools, everything within the inn has a story and a reason for being there. Everything is sourced as locally as possible, and supports the surrounding communities.
The M/V Milo may be the coolest way to explore the wild Alaskan coastline and its many hidden treasures.

Three and a half years into it’s restoration and re-fitting, the Milo is ready to be your Alaska adventure lauchpad, whether it's a surf trip, a SUP tour, or a working expedition.
