MICHAEL PHILLIPS

No man prefers to sleep two in a bed. In fact, you would a good deal rather not sleep with your own brother. I don’t know how it is, but people like to be private when they are sleeping. And when it comes to sleeping with an unknown stranger, in a strange inn, in a strange town, and that stranger a harpooneer, then your objections indefinitely multiply.

Nor was there any earthly reason why I as a sailor should sleep two in a bed, more than anybody else; for sailors no more sleep two in a bed at sea, than bachelor Kings do ashore. To be sure they all sleep together in one apartment, but you have your own hammock, and cover yourself with your own blanket, and sleep in your own skin.

RECENT FEEDBACK

For with the charts of all four oceans before him, Ahab was threading a maze of currents and eddies, with a view to the more certain accomplishment of that monomaniac thought of his soul.

INSTAGRAM FEED

The more I pondered over this harpooneer, the more I abominated the thought of sleeping with him. It was fair to presume that being a harpooneer, his linen or woollen, as the case might be, would not be of the tidiest.

  • Give your travel wish list a dash of pure mountain light. At Pubudu’s A-frame on a historic tea plantation, the morning view is just as bracing as a cup of the local product. Steep yourself in the area’s lush, orderly beauty with a walk up to a waterfall or over to Lake Gregory, where your swan boat awaits.

  • California travel might be tricky right now, but updating your wish list isn’t. Why not go big—redwoods big? This serene Big Sur cabin lets you soak up the energy of the surrounding redwoods from hammock or hot tub. Douglas, your host, will point you toward his favorite coastal walks for watching sea otters or (to stick with the “go big” theme), humpbacks.

  • Fia is a restorer and designer who loves breathing new life into old furniture and spaces. Lucky for us, she’s also a Superhost. Her tiny house sits right on the edge of De Hoge Veluwe National Park, so things don’t get any less beautiful when you venture out. Hop on one of the vast park’s free white bikes and roll through landscapes ranging from sand dunes to forest, keeping an eye out for red deer and wild boar.

  • Superhosts Danielle and Ely make sure their big cabin brims with life year-round. Originally built in 1845, it’s an elegant base for the slopes of Hunter or Windham mountains in the winter, or for Colgate Lake and endless forest trails when it’s warm.

  • Grazing lambs provide the lawncare at this tiny hilltop house above the lush Ica Valley. Alex, a farmer and Superhost, provides homegrown breakfast and local guidance. In the unlikely event that you want a change of scenery, a range of beaches are a short drive away, whether you like your sandscapes picturesque (Castlepoint), secluded (Otahome), or lively (Riversdale).

  • Impeccable design, 360 degrees of high-desert light, and s’mores by a fire pit rarely crack a dachshund’s travel checklist. But the prospect of roaming as far as your little legs can take you—in Joshua Tree National Park or on trails leading right from the property—is a different story. The sun provides the electricity, while Dani, your attentive host, provides everything else you need to enjoy the area.

  • Superhost Karen transformed the silo of a 1950s dairy barn into a playfully inspiring space. Upon arrival, you’ll get hints about a secret compartment that hides a special gift for you. But the whole place feels like a gift—especially when you’re following the grapevine handrail up the spiral staircase to your big round bed.

  • When your cabin is in a place called Skyforest—just off the Rim of the World Scenic Byway—the interior can hardly be expected to compete with the nonstop spectacle outside. But Superhosts Brittney and Jeff make sure it does, with three stories of elegant lines and cozy touches. Hit the slopes of nearby Snow Valley or just stay inside and ponder all the angles.
