Property description

This 5,000 square foot craftsman built lodge is too expansive to fit into so few pictures. To see more, view our youtube video.
This one-of-a-kind, very spacious 2 story ~ 4+ bedroom, 4.5 bath, custom home boasts huge radiating wood-beamed vaulted ceilings throughout (aptly called the SunHouse). Granite and Yellowstone River-rock throughout, giant custom stone fireplace and wrap-around walls of windows in every room with gorgeous views of the Absaroka Mountain Range. There is a two-story kitchen skylight, 2 great outdoor balconies with their own Bistro sets, and one with a beautiful private rooftop outdoor fireplace and sitting area. There is a private backyard with stainless steel BBQ, and outdoor dining for 6-8, under pergola and trees. In the front is a huge sunken firepit with ample seating for your entire group and guests.
All this, just minutes to Yellowstone National Park, the Yellowstone River, Chico Hot Springs, & Beautiful Pine Creek.
This unique, open floorplan home has custom rockwork, artwork and woodwork throughout, themed bedrooms, as well as an additional private Library and separate Theatre Room with a queen sofa sleeper~making a 5th bdrm.
The 1500 sq ft Master Suite is very private - on the 2nd story in a separate wing - and includes it's own kitchenette, his and hers separate bathrooms, extra large custom granite walk-in shower, huge sunken jacuzzi tub with corner windows and mountain views, a separate specially designed make-up area for her, and an extra large walk-in closet with his and hers dressers.
The Master Suite and the Bunkhouse room both have their own loveseat/table/chair living spaces with TVs. All bathrooms have custom tilework. The downstairs Fisherman's Room has an old fashioned tub, and an old saloon styled toilet closet. The upstairs Balcony Room has a private outdoor balcony, where you can have your morning cup of coffee and watch the sun rise over Emigrant Peak, as well as a French Provincial indoor balcony that opens to the Atrium with its wall of windows, and ceiling of skylights looking out toward golden hills and the Gallatin Mountain range with unobstructed views.
On the Main Floor, with it's open floor-plan and 12-14' high ceilings, is a huge sunken living room with a cozy ranch-style atmosphere, a giant stone custom fire place, two large cowboy sofas and extra window seating perfect for intimate family gatherings.
This wonderful open floor plan seamlessly integrates the library and media rooms, as well as the kitchen, bar, dining, living, and outdoor cooking/eating areas together to offer a spacious, yet comfortable, warm atmosphere for entertaining family and guests.

The giant dining room table easily accommodates large groups of 10 with additional seating for 4 at the serving bar.
The fully equipped, all stainless steel, custom kitchen has a double convection oven, large center Island with additional prep sink and seating for 2, stainless steel cookware, and extra large pots and serving dishes for special occasions. There is also a full custom bar with frig, wine cooler, serving glasses and pitchers ... essentially everything you will need for a wonderful family gathering or reunion.
There are two private balconies with bistro sets off 2nd floor rooms, offering more intimate settings with awesome mountain views. The private yard that opens from the dining room is a wonderful place to sit in the evenings, in a peaceful, quiet, nature setting, under the beautiful Montana skies. This home was built with love and family and friends and happy gatherings in mind, and we hope you will enjoy staying here as much as we do!
Welcome to your Home away from Home in Montana!
