We may have just found your dream vacation spot at the rustic, but modern eco-lodge of Stone Creek Camp on Flathead Lake, Montana. Designed by Andersson Wise Architects, the absolutely gorgeous architecture of this fishing camp and lodge will have you dreaming of lazy days atop its decks overlooking the lake, with a cup of tea on one hand, a good book in the other. As eco-friendly as it is beautiful, green features abound throughout the entire complex, including a stacked wood facade built from fallen trees on site, a green roof and an integrated, energy efficient design.
Stone Creek Camp  occupies 15 acres of land on the eastern shore of Flathead Lake in Bigfork, Montana and is currently on sale for $19 million! The camp consists of a master residence called the Lake House; a lodge with a communal living room, dining room, gym, storage and craft room; a 4-car garage and workshop; a guest house; a kitchen and laundry building; and a large dock. The property’s original 1940’s cabin has been maintained during refurbishment.
The Lake House is the core of the camp and serves as the main residence with its own kitchen, living room and amenities. A beautiful stacked “cordwood wall ” for the interior and exterior of the home was built from Douglas Firs found on-site. The roof of the Lake House features a beautiful sod green roof  that provides insulation and infiltration. Most of the materials for the camp, including the stone, wood, siding, windows and doors were all sourced regionally.
All of the decking and floors are made from durable and rot resistant IPE wood  and parts of the building’s exterior utilizes low-maintenance and naturally oxidizing Corten steel. Energy efficient design is achieved with radiant floor heating, high performance and spectrally selective windows as well as super tight, closed cell foam insulation and a cold roof system to prevent ice dams.
