Rustic mountain getaway boasts idyllic views of Yellowstone National Park


Miller Roodell Architects has designed this rustic mountain getaway nestled on a property in the Yellowstone Club, a residential community located in Madison County, just west of Big Sky, Montana. This home was created to be a relaxing getaway for a family of five to escape urban living and their busy work schedules.

There were several notable features that attracted the owners to this area, including the mountains, proximity to ski slopes and the perks of the private Yellowstone Club. However, the most appealing feature is the uninterrupted views to the southeast toward Yellowstone National Park. The primary goals for the design were siting the home to take advantage of the natural setting and creating a timeless aesthetic to accommodate a growing family and their lifestyle needs.

The family spends quality time in the home throughout all four seasons — winter months to enjoy skiing and snowshoeing, and summers for hiking and fishing. The great room features soaring ceilings that tower to 24-feet. Throughout the interiors, a neutral color palette places focus on the home’s picturesque setting. Throughout the interiors, you will find hewn wood on the walls, reclaimed oak on the floor, barn board for the ceilings, and moss rock stone-clad fireplaces. Slate has also been used on some of this home’s floors.

What We Love: This rustic mountain getaway features incredible gathering spaces to enjoy the company of family and friends. Warm materials and a layering of textures help to create intimacy in larger scale rooms. The neutral color palette in this mountain setting provides a feeling of serenity, what you want when you are escaping city life! We are especially loving the outdoor patio, we would be mesmerized by those mountain views… how about you?

The main living spaces and two guest bedroom suites are located on the main level, while the family sleeping quarters encompass the upper level. Most of the bedrooms were designed to maximize the views of nature, with the intention of experiencing the outdoors even when you are inside. There are a total of seven bedrooms in this home, including a bunk bedroom, along with space for playing games, gathering, and lounging.

Above: Adjacent to the house, this structure is reminiscent of a trapper’s cabin. It is used as a spot to store ski gear and suit up before heading out to the slopes. Furnishings include a rustic table, benches, vintage cowhide armchairs and window treatments fabricated with Ralph Lauren fabric. A wood stove is used as a heat source.


This home’s gabled design embraces tradition yet feels modern. Both the interior and exterior material palette consists of locally quarried stone and hewn reclaimed wood.
