House of the Day: Montana Cabin Lists at $2.9 Million

montana cabinIt may seem a bit pricey to pay $2.9 million for a 1,300-square-foot cabin that goes by the name Twisted Stick, but the charming residence sits amid 379 acres and under the big blue McLeod, Mt., sky. The ranch was named after a gnarled tree stump that sits on a point overlooking the homesite.

Twisted Stick was designed and built by a well-known McLeod builder, Terry Baird, in 1990. The cabin is made from rough-hewn logs taken from an old barn and has the look of having been there forever. It has a large master bedroom and a living room with a river rock fireplace. There is also a kitchen, sauna and office, all enhanced by skylights.

The ranch house is served by well water, has its own septic tank and, given its remote location, still has electricity and telephone service. And you certainly won't have to worry about noisy neighbors, except for perhaps those with paws.
The ranch retreat controls both sides of a nice stretch of the West Boulder River and has commanding views of the peaks of the Absaroka Range. It's about a 30-minute drive to Timber or Livingston, Mt., and an hour from Bozeman.

The cabin is the only structure on the property, but there is a second site suitable for a more expansive home. Meanwhile, enjoy the fact that from your front porch, not a single other home comes into view, just the West Boulder River running through a cottonwood and aspen forest.
