Building in Big Sky is mainly about an outdoor lifestyle. The Ranches Lodge is almost a contemporary ranch with a mountain west attitude. Also featured in Montana Living's, "Montana's Finest Homes, " Ranches Lodge sits on over 3 acres. The home shares many characteristics of the area's mountain architecture. Thick Douglas Fir plank siding, with Montana moss rock stonework.

This 5500 square foot home includes five bedrooms and a guest suite. A stone wall punctuated by an archway opens into the dining room. Distressed walnut floors run through the great room and circle-sawn tongue and grove grace the soaring ceiling.
