Breathtaking Montana lake house offers timeless rustic elegance


This beautiful rustic lake house is designed by Centre Sky Architecture in collaboration with Hunter & Company, located on the pristine Glenn Lake in Eureka, Montana. Created for a family as a summer getaway, the design for this retreat took full advantage of an idyllic lakefront setting. With breathtaking lake views and all the wildlife that inhabits the surrounding area, it was the perfect platform to integrate large windows and create fun outdoor spaces.

Material selections were integral to the livability of this lake house retreat. An example of this is the flagstone flooring that runs through the main living spaces and continuing to the outdoors. The homeowner’s selected this material for it’s durability for their dogs. The uninterrupted flooring also makes it feel like you could be indoors or out.
