Keep scrolling to see some of the amazing photos of this to-die-for home.

Mountain Modern Paradise

It's nothing but the best for this year's Dream Home, which has been constructed with reclaimed historical resources, timber frame architecture characteristic to the area and uses custom craftsmanship. It was designed by Timber Forge Design and built by Malmquist Construction but all we really care about is that this house is gorgeous inside and out.

An Outdoor Oasis

You won't be short on outdoor living when it comes to this home, which includes plenty of amenities. Expect to enjoy an upper deck and lower patio with dining and lounging space, a grill, fire place, Scandinavian hot tub—and a private chair lift directly to the ski mountain. Hold on while we grab our skis!

This Gorgeous Garage

Only a parent can truly appreciate a good garage, and you're going to need a sweet space to park that new Honda Pilot anyways! The Whitefish home comes complete with a three-car garage that not only includes pretty storage, but a television. Finally, a retreat for moms.

A Giant Great Room

They say the kitchen is the heart of the home, but we aren't so sure after checking out this great room. The oversized windows allow for ample viewing of the gorgeous scenery and the decor is all Montana.

Sit back and enjoy the linear gas fireplace that's covered in sheet metal on the L-shaped sofa, while putting your feet up on a concrete and wood coffee table. Several retro pieces and plenty of layered rugs give this rustic-inspired home an updated look. If you need us, you know where to find us!

One Dazzling Dining Room

You won't be sacrificing the view when you sit down in this amazing dining area, with sliding doors that open directly on to the deck. The room's location amid the open concept places this area directly adjacent to the kitchen, which makes it perfect for casual or fine dining.

The sculptural table is made with a metal top, so not only does it look amazingly cool, it'll hold up under your kiddos.


If the five-star appliances aren't enough to wow you in this kitchen, that oversized island with a brushed metal top just might. The design of this space creates ideal traffic flow and tons of workspace, while the contrasting upper and lower cabinets make it look just stinkin' cool.

Lovely Lodge Living

Why yes, we will enjoy some extra space in our lodge style bonus room, thank you very much! This navy-painted room is decked out in vintage skis with mid-century modern decor pieces. Rustic wood textures will get you in the Montana spirit, you know––right before you hop on your private ski lift to the slopes.

This Pretty Little Powder Room

Energy-efficient windows, a slow closing toilet lid, Carerra marble countertops and a soothing dark paint color make this powder room a sanctuary. Located right off the main family living space, it also makes for a quick getaway for moms who "just need two minutes alone!"

A Mesmerizing Master Bedroom

Metals and rustic wood combines in this amazing master bedroom with lofted ceilings and French doors that lead to a decked seating area. The soft autumnal color palette makes this a relaxing retreat fit for any exhausted parent!

And a Magical Master Bath

A walk-in shower with dual shower heads and full body sprayers means you may prefer spending most your time in the bathroom! Enjoy soft green paint, a double vanity, a separate water closet to confine the toilet for privacy. The space offers a unique open concept bath and shower set up, where the tub is actually in the shower, so there's also that.

...And a Mom-Worthy Master Closet

Talk about dream closets! The Dream Home doesn't let us down with the master closet, that boasts tons of built in shelving, rods and cabinetry to contain your super cool mom wardrobe.

The Perfect Pet Nook

Why yes, there IS a place for all your pets at the Dream Home! The area under the stairs has been transformed into a pet sanctuary to store supplies and a space to corral Rover. It's complete with a Dutch-style swinging half door, fun graphic art and comes completely stocked with a supply of gourmet wet and dry dog food––because of course.

A Beautiful Bunk Room

Kids and adults alike would enjoy a stay in this bunk room, which boasts a twin mattress over a full bottom bunk bed. The loft-area sleeping space is rustic with plenty of Montana vibes. The handrail leading to the room is made from an old ski lift cable, so it's just plain fun getting upstairs!

And a Bunk Bathroom, Too

This guest bathroom is perfect for lodgers of the bunk room and the buffalo check guest room. The bright paint and white details keep it clean and fresh, while the walk in shower comes with a rain shower head for ultimate relaxation.

A Good-Looking Guest Room

There are plenty of guest rooms to go around in the Whitefish home, and this particular Western decorated space (with hipster flair) is found on the second floor. The custom bed frame and handmade pillows prove it's all about the details...and did we mention it comes with an advanced, smart sleep bed that auto-adjusts for firmness? Genius.

Ridiculously "Read" Guest Bedroom

You'll want to sneak away for a few hours of reading if you're staying in the barn wood red guest bedroom. Plenty of books are organized by color to make the collection its own work of art and the hanging pedestal lamp over the bed is a reader's paradise. 

Terrific Teal Guest Bathroom

The ensuite bathroom to the red guest bedroom packs big design details, from the oversized black and white checked tile shower, to the red accents to coordinate with the adjacent bedroom. The modern space is flush with energy efficient windows, Carrera marble––all things glam.

There's Even a Lovable Laundry Room

This space is the gorgeous hallway that leads to a spacious mudroom and high-tech laundry room that comes with a stacked slate electric washer and dryer. A beautiful utility sink, water sensor to prevent flooding and bright and airy windows means that laundry is almost fun when you do it in the dream home.
