Escape – STARLIGHT ROOM in DOLOMITES

Escape – STARLIGHT ROOM in DOLOMITES

If you ever venture out to the Italian Dolomites and are looking for a special experience, don’t miss out on spending a night in this tiny STARLIGHT ROOM.  You can find it just outside the northern Italian town of Cortina d’ampezzo offering you an intimate retreat away from everyday noise. The tiny room is perched 6,742 feet above sea level and is perfect for solo hikers but super romantic for couples, offering spectacular unobstructed views of the surrounding alpine landscape. The wooden abode is set on faux-skis and in the winter it looks like something Santa Claus would make a pitstop at. It features a glass ceiling and walls, providing panoramic perspective of the mountainous setting. Furnished with a double bed  that fits snugly inside… you and your plus one will be cozy while staring at the starry sky at night, far from light pollution and noise. Feeling all the stress just melting away.  There are two ways to reach this little gem, either via snowmobile or for the true nature enthusiasts by hiking/snowshoeing.
