The log cabin home designs featured here showcase a spectacular entertainment lodge on a 4,500 acre cattle ranch in Montana. Designed by Ewing Architects in Pasadena, California, this 10,000 square foot stone and log structure is absolutely extraordinary!
Rarely do we get an opportunity to see a private lodge of this stature. Meticulously designed and magnificently executed, this is truly one for the ages!
Employing post and beam construction, the lodge at Shining Mountain Ranch utilizes generous amounts of stone on its exterior. Pictured in the close-up above, as well as a wider view below, is the front facade with its large entry tower.
A side view shows some of the massive stone chimneys in this log cabin home design. Note the built-in storage area for firewood.
At the rear, a massive covered porch and stone terrace dominate the facade . . . . .
. . . with a close-up view showing a wall of multi-pane windows and doors that open onto the terrace, and enormous log columns supporting the porch roof.
Stone is also used in abundance on the interior. The dry stacked stone fireplace pictured below -- one of many in the lodge -- is located in the foyer.
The spectacular Great Hall soars to a height of more than two stories . . . . . . .
Anchoring each end of the Great Hall is a monumental stone fireplace!
In the library/billiard room, a massive stone masonry fireplace dominates one end of the room. Note the cozy inglenook incorporated in the fireplace design.
Another view of the library/billiard room shows the built-in gun cabinets surrounded by stone.
The expansive kitchen includes a large island with a stainless steel counter top. Easy to maintain ceramic tile covers the floor.
A built-in bar is anchored on either end by massive log columns to support the structural beams overhead.
And finally, taking center stage, is the incredible media room pictured below. Over-stuffed sofas and chairs ensure a comfortable viewing experience in this monumental lodge!
