Few cabins, however, possess the nostalgic charm and ambiance of the exquisite little architectural jewel that
follows. Designed by the talented folks at Miller Architects, a premier Montana-based architecture firm
cializing in high-end, Western residential projects, this storybook cabin overlooks a mountain lake in the northern Rocky Mountains.
According to Candace Miller, the firm's principal, "The fishing pond at this project’s home ranch is down a steep slope, some distance from the main compound. To providing shelter from fast-moving storms, a lunch spot, or just a great place for a nap, the owners asked us to design a small fishing cabin. To ensure it blended in to its environment as much as possible, we chose indigenous materials -- such as boulders displaced by mining and local reclaimed timbers -- to help solidify the connection between the structure and the site. A sod roof seeded with native grasses and resident wildflowers further connects this structure to its surroundings."
Architect Candace Miller goes on to describe how the family uses and en-
joys this little slice of heaven: "Now the little cabin is the favorite place for teaching the grandkids how to fish, or for a summer afternoon swim, or simply for reading a good book in front of the crackling fireplace."
Whether perched beside a lake in an enchanting forest or on the banks of
a lush mountain stream, a cozy cabin makes a perfect weekend retreat or vacation getaway!
