Designed as a gathering place for both family and friends, this serene mountain retreat was the imagination of Pearson Design Group, nestled on a six-acre property in the Yellow Stone Club, Big Sky, Montana. The spacious 9,500 square foot home offers its inhabitants year round activities, making it an ideal place to have a vacation property. There is a lot to offer in this home, including breathtaking vistas of nearby Cedar and Pioneer Mountains. Window nooks throughout gives the inhabitants a cozy space to curl up and read a book or capitalize on the surrounding rugged terrain. The guesthouse features a tower with 360 degree views, a perk to being an overnight guest! The structure was designed to emulate a forest service tower, where this space is also used as both a meditative and yoga area, or to enjoy listening to the tranquil sounds of the nearby waterfall-fed pond. There is also a waterfall-fed pond on the property, suitable for swimming in and enjoying boating activities. Adjacent to the pond, a patio encompasses outdoor living and eating spaces with a built-in hearth and barbecue, allowing those enjoying this area to interact with nature.
Here are a couple of other notable projects by Pearson Design Group that we have featured as home tours here on 1 Kindesign, Rustic-luxe log cabin retreat in Big Sky, Montana or this amazing one, Cozy ski lodge retreat boasting rustic elegance in Big Sky.
The exterior facade reflects weathered fieldstone rich with lichen sourced from regional quarries and hand-hewn reclaimed logs, making the home more of an extension of its existing environment. A rustic modern cabin-in-the-woods with a true Rocky Mountain feel that is very authentic, step inside this home tour and you will really get to see this home’s true beauty within.
What We Love: Although the home was designed to cater to the lifestyle of a family that enjoys gatherings and entertainment, the structure impressively reflects its natural setting, melding into the surrounding wilderness. What do you think of this home, do you find it comfortable and inviting or large and overbearing? Let us know your thoughts in the comments section below!
The architects designed the structure with a standard stick frame, clad with standing dead lodge pole pines stacked, which helps to prevent shifting, a problem that typically occurs with a larger sized home. The interior of the home is clad with reclaimed hemlock on both walls and ceilings and plenty of weathered wood for structural posts and trusses.
The kitchen features high-end appliances all the while in keeping with a rustic cabin feel. Custom designed light fixtures in the form of lanterns gives one the sense of feeling outdoors, all the while enjoying the comforts of being inside. The kitchen is open to the dining area, which flows on into the living room, creating an easy flow from one space to the next and encouraging conversation.
The living room features four fieldstone fireplaces designed for ambiance and warmth, a comfortable gathering space for extended family to enjoy each other’s company. A picture window frames a perfect view of the mountainous landscape in the distance.
The master bedroom suite is located above the main level, with its own wood-burning fireplace, private deck and more intimate views of the rugged property.
A custom designed wine room is located on the ground floor, opening out to an entertainment area that encompasses a home theater room.
