Situated in a broad, beautiful river valley with heart stopping views of Big Sky Country, this unique cabin backs up directly to the iconic Beaverhead River. Its timeless exterior is designed with hand-hewn lumber siding, which evokes a modern log home look but with greater efficiencies and longevity. A distinguishing feature of the dwelling is its sod roof, spanning the entire home. The grassy rooftop is a low-maintenance, environmentally-friendly building option that complements the surrounding wilderness, along with a single-level floor plan for a subtler profile that doesn’t compete with the expansive skies above.
The log theme continues inside as an eye-catching feature across various walls and also decorates the one-room cabin around the bend. But the true highlight of this property is the natural landscape — the structures are just yards from the Beaverhead River. Both the master bedroom and living room offer front-row views of the water’s edge from respective screen-in decks. After a full day of fishing, owners can prepare the catch of the day in their gorgeous farmhouse kitchen. From main features like the deep distressed charm of the cabinets and the eggshell subway tile backsplash, to the smallest details like the section of butcher block counter and hidden refrigerator, this space embodies a vintage feel with modern amenities.
The custom cabin champions the use of coordinating wood elements. A variety of subtle hues blend throughout the beautifully reclaimed floors. Each timber’s nuances are paralleled by the sturdy logs supporting the tongue and groove ceiling above the open-concept kitchen-dining-family room spaces. An arched ceiling crowns a sunlit, windowed walkway separating the main living area from a more secluded master retreat.
This cabin is a celebration of the Montana lifestyle — a sanctuary, a haven, and a carefully-constructed love letter to Big Sky Country.
