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.

  • What if you could put a love spell…on yourself? “You speak things into existence,” says host Jasmine in Los Angeles. “A spell is basically a ritual. A self-love spell is when you use the power of intention to manifest the things you desire, like having more confidence and loving yourself.”

In her Online Experience, “Self-Love Spell Creation Course,” Jasmine (@dreamgirlspirituality) culls from over 20 years of tarot card and spell-making experience to help people bring rituals into their every day life. “Times are rough, especially now,” she says, thumbing through one of her many tiny journals filled with hand-written spells. “I just want to help people find hope. Find a little bit of magic every day.”

  • Superhost David’s chalet is just right for a long getaway, with plenty of room to work in peace even if you’re bringing a family—or two—full of kids and pets. But there are some potential obstacles to productivity, like ski slopes that are too close, a hot tub that’s too inviting, and Laurentian views that are much too majestic. Hopefully you’ll find a way to make it work.

  • Matcha may be trending, but there’s a thousand-year history behind it. Host Atsuko can tell you all about it from her teahouse in Kyoto. In her online experience, she performs a tea ceremony live and online for you to find connection, mindfulness, and escape. “Touching upon Zen, flower arranging, traditional architecture and ceramics, there is a lot more to tea ceremony than meets the eye,” she says.

  • "Unexplained smells and sounds. Not for the faint of heart," is how your host, John, describes this bedroom — which belonged to a seven-year-old child in 1911. John, a writer, spent the past two decades transforming each room into a different time and place, as if being in a novel where secret doors lead to new worlds. But there's so much beyond what meets the eye 👻.

  • Even four-legged family members know that some sunsets are worth waiting for. A short drive from Vancouver, Superhost Steven’s house puts Howe Sound and the whole breathtaking Squamish region at your feet. Wifi and room to work make it easy to stay long enough to explore the area, starting with the property’s own waterfalls. Don’t miss the bike trails of Squamish Mountain—the fall colors are spectacular around here even when they’re blurring past you. #GoNear

  • Want a better work space? An ever-changing view of the Ligurian Sea is the ultimate motivational poster. Alessandro’s Cinque Terre apartment also has good wifi and other work essentials, but you may need to clock out each day the moment smells start wafting up from the al fresco restaurants on the piazza below.

  • Lose yourself in the woods only an hour from Atlanta. Once you’ve settled into Superhost Debra’s treehouse deluxe, you can wander along a spring-fed creek, check out nearby wineries, or just soak up the view, which is spectacular even from the chairs suspended under the deck. If you head into town to shop or eat, be sure to bring back some pumpkin rolls from the Picnic Cafe and Dessertery. #GoNear

  • Just two hours from L.A., this high-desert dome makes it easy to break out into the open. Superhosts Kathrin and Brian seem to have thought of everything, from quirky old books and games to a telescope for serious stargazing. If you like your galactic views with a side of pie, stop by Boo’s Organic Oven in town before settling in for the nightly show. #GoNear
