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.

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.

  • Superhost Stephanie’s little Big Sky cabin is a great home base for adventures in Flathead National Forest or Glacier National Park. But it’s equally well-suited for slowing all the way down, making a mug of hot chocolate, and staring out at the Mission Mountains.

  • Superhost Shelley’s remote cabin is a short drive from Denali, but it’s so surrounded by winter beauty that you might not venture farther out than the surrounding cross-country trails. The show doesn’t stop after dark, either—bundle up and head out for a chance to catch the Northern Lights. One recent guest watched them, awestruck, from the center of a frozen lake.

  • The sauna, deck, and overall design make Superhost Josh’s house feel like a restorative spa. Or maybe it’s the setting—you can follow a trail through lush forest down to a wild, rugged beach. One recent guest noted “bald eagles all over the place,” while another spotted a pod of orcas.

  • There’s no light like sunlight off a Muskoka lake. Superhost Shari’s forest cabin is perched right on the edge of Three Mile Lake, so the views from your bedroom are just as grand as the ones from your canoe.

  • Celebrate the season McCallister-style, ya filthy animals. For the first time ever, one crew of mischief makers can book a holiday in the timeless house where the Home Alone story began (without the interruption of pesky intruders). Big brother Buzz will host an overnight stay in his childhood home while the McCallisters are away for the holidays. Guests will enjoy a cozy holiday scene with a perfectly trimmed tree included, booby traps galore (but don’t worry – you’ll be setting them, not sidestepping them!), Chicago’s finest pizza and a meet and greet with a real-life tarantula. After, sit back and enjoy a viewing of the film franchise’s newest holiday adventure, #HomeSweetHomeAlone. 

Bookings begin Tuesday, December 7 at 1 pm CT. Link in bio to tour the rest of the home.
  • A meditative morning at Superhost Kenny’s cabin can help you face the tough decisions that lie ahead. Like whether to spend the day scaling the peaks of Aoraki Mt. Cook National Park or just hanging out among “the woolly welcoming committee,” as one guest called the curious sheep who wander the property.

  • Superhosts Kate and Gabe’s renovated cabin puts you close to the slopes but even closer to an ideal sledding hill—it’s in the backyard, just past the hot tub. Even if you and your friends roam in different directions throughout the day, the gravitational pull of the fire will bring everyone back together every night.

  • Superhost Ronaldo worked with an architect friend to transform an old tobacco kiln on his family’s farm into an elegant retreat. It’s not just a feast for the eyes. He’ll also share the farm’s walnuts, oranges, figs, plums, passionfruit ... whatever’s freshest when you get here. Pack your bounty up, add a loaf of bread, and take the bikes down to the river for a picnic and a dip.
