House of the Day: Montana Island Cabin Redefines Privacy
This rustic refuge in Whitefish, Mt., is downright redundant. Not only is the $9 million luxury cabin located in one of the most sparsely populated states, it also sits on its own lush 10-acre island. In the way of privacy, it gives Thoreau's Walden Pond a run for its money.
With a sweeping panorama of the Canadian Rockies visible through its Pella windows, the 7,500-square-foot custom-built log home offers five bedrooms and bathrooms, a gourmet kitchen, a theater and -- for the sessions of Emersonian reflection -- a 1,000-bottle wine cellar. Bald eagles, deer and other wildlife roam a waterfront that's longer than 10 football fields.
If the seclusion gets you feeling bit stir-crazy, don't worry: You're not marooned. The ski town of Whitefish is nearby and the environs afford a rich array of other recreational activities including fly-fishing, hiking and boating at the nearby Whitefish Mountain Resort.
The Hurwitz James Company has the listing.
