This welcoming rustic guest cabin is designed by Miller-Roodell Architects, located in Bridger Canyon, a desirable area just Northeast of Bozeman, Montana. This cozy 1,665 square foot, the two-bedroom cabin provides an idyllic respite for a Texas family to feel both nostalgic and at home.
Their vision for this rustic guest cabin: a design that is regionally specific, modest in scale and historically appropriate. It also needed to be textured, layered and personal. With a symmetrical cross-axis design, timbered features, and simple materials, this cabin melds magnificently into the surrounding environment.
What We Love: This rustic guest cabin is infused with character, personality and a sense of place. Surrounded by a tranquil setting of aspens, forested foothills, and breathtaking views, this guesthouse provides an idyllic getaway. We are especially loving the collected look throughout the interiors, with a rustic material palette providing a warm and inviting feel.
They envisioned a guest cabin that would not only be of the region, modestly scaled and historically appropriate, but also textured, layered and personal. With a symmetrical cross-axis design, timbered features, and simple materials, this cabin blends perfectly into the surrounding landscape.
A simple material palette was employed in this guesthouse: wood siding, metal roof, stone base veneer, and fireplace. The overall design aesthetic is more refined than a traditional rustic home.
In the kitchen, pendant lights are from Urban Electric, while the wall sconces are Robert Ogden. Cabinet hardware is sourced from Rocky Mountain Hardware. Backsplash tile is Ann Sacks and the range hood is a custom design by Bolton Construction.
The interior of this guest cabin is serene, featuring reclaimed wood walls, ceilings and cabinets, metal countertops and concrete flooring.
Decorating this living room is a sofa by Verellen, a Ralph Lauren table lamp and a floor lamp by Robert Ogden. Extending this space outdoors is a timbered, gabled extension, generating a covered patio.
Throughout this cabin, you will find one-of-a-kind items, courtesy of interior design studio Abby Hetherington Interiors. The designer sourced several pieces in this home from fairs and antique shops — in both Bozeman and Texas. Rugs were found at the Round Top Antiques Fair. There are also Yellowstone Park memorabilia found scattered throughout this cabin.
Both of the bedrooms in this home have built-in window seats, Andy Warhol artwork, and an opulent bed with mountain views.
On the floor of this bathroom are graphic tiles from Sabine Hill. An arrowhead light fixture adds to the overly Aztec feel of this space.
The homeowner wanted this cabin to have an overall collected aesthetic. Contributing to this feel is a piece of art on this bedroom wall, Buffalo Nickel by Andy Warhol.
This bathroom features a custom reclaimed wood cabinet with a concrete trough sink and movable wood shelf. Adding a pop of color is an orange Saba Italia chair. The antler pendant lights are sourced from Fish’s Antler Art.
The cabin was designed to tuck against the foothills among existing aspen trees.
