Introducing Great Point Lodge designed by the Miller Architects, my all time favorite mountain lodge. Massive enough for all of your guests at 18,000 sq. ft. boasting seven bedrooms and seven bathrooms but the feel of a cozy cabin nestled in the breath taking Gallatin Mountains. Lets take the tour and talk about ways to design a lodge.

Dramatic Lighting- The scale is paramount in homes like this where massive ceiling heights and wide open spaces make up the interior.

Create Cozy Spaces- Reading nooks and window seats provide quiet areas for guests to retreat and making the lodge feel like a cozy cabin.

Fireplaces- This goes without saying in a lodge home and the use of natural stone with reclaimed lumber mantels completes the look.
