Designed by Faure Halvorsen Architects, this mountain home is the embodiment of log cabin luxury, located in the Yellowstone Club of Big Sky, Montana. Artfully hand crafted in every detail, the entirety of this home is constructed of rustic logs and stacked stone. Several elements throughout consist of reclaimed materials. The ultimate Rocky Mountain getaway, this custom cabin was designed to be the perfect ski retreat that can entertain extended family and friends.

The architects also designed a guest house as well as a 40-foot lookout tower above the main residence. This offers sweeping views of Lone Mountain, the private ski hill and other surrounding mountain ranges. Built by Teton Heritage Builders, they crafted a home with strong ties to both history and nature. The homeowners requested that their home have a Western aesthetic—to look like 1875. The design is characterized by “Old West and New West meet, where a love affair with Old Western movies combines with home,” states the architects.

The guest house was built on the property first. This was so the homeowners, a couple from Minneapolis, Minnesota, could stay there while visiting the property as it was being constructed over the course of two years. The guest house is connected to the main residence via a porte cochère.

The cabin features natural materials, which includes standing-dead timbers, mixed with Montana sandstone. These materials helps to bring the outdoors–in. Encompassing 7,000 square feet of living space, there are a total of five bedrooms in this home, which includes a master bedroom suite and four guest bedrooms.

At the top of the tower is a cozy seating area that offers panoramic views of the surrounding mountain ranges. Below this is a mid-level seating area and a lower level that serves as a home bar. At the base of this tower is a wine cellar, featuring protruding rocks for shelves and framed reward posters for bandits! The tower flows into the central living area—the great room.
