Lake House With Stone-and-Wood Entry

This lake house near Whitefish, Mont., was designed by Ross Anderson of Ross G Anderson Architects in collaboration with Barb Cooke of Cooke Interiors Studio. Together, they used clean lines and sleek finishes to put a modern spin on the traditional, rustic cabin. Natural materials are prominent throughout the home, too, to complement the views.

Multi-Purpose Mudroom With Cubbies

This mudroom is actually multi-purposeful, with cubbies to the left for coats and boots and a stacked washer/dryer set on the right for easy clean-up. Walls of cabinets ward off clutter as well.

Hallway Features Reclaimed Wood Beams

From the hallway, guests can enjoy a glimpse of the living room and -- just beyond that -- the gorgeous lake views. Reclaimed wood beams and a stone accent wall bring in some natural texture and speak to the lake house's rustic location.

Living Room Boasts Tall Ceilings, Lake Views

Stepping into the living room reveals soaring ceilings accentuated by reclaimed wood beams. An oversized rug anchors the sitting area below, with a large neutral sofa and two chevron-patterned armchairs layered on top. A piano invites the whole family to sing carols at Christmas time.

Stone Fireplace Makes Living Room Feel Extra Cozy

A floor-to-ceiling stone fireplace separates the living room from the entryway, making the two spaces feel extra cozy. Meanwhile, a neutral sectional and two chevron-patterned armchairs ensure that there are enough seats for guests.

Kitchen Includes Island Wrapped With Wood

An open plan kitchen is a must for a lake house that often hosts a crowd. White walls and delicate pendant lights uplift the space, while a reclaimed wood ceiling and island infuse it with warmth and rustic personality. Five barstools encourage guests to take a seat and chat with the chef.

Dining Room With Charcoal Gray Chairs

Turning left off the living room leads visitors into the dining area. Here, a modern wood table and eight gray slipper chairs create a stylish spot to break bread, while reclaimed wood beams and a Craftsman-esque door continue the rustic touches.

Sophisticated Gray Powder Room

Now here's a powder room that's not afraid to make a statement! Patterned wallpaper in gray adds interest and intrigue to the space, while glass pendants, a metallic mirror and a marble-topped vanity pull in some shimmer.

Lake House Basement Converted Into Den

To make the most of the home's floor plan (and create even more space for entertaining), the designers converted the basement into a den. A built-in entertainment unit houses the TV, with shelves on either side for DVDs, while a sectional and ottoman encourage everyone to cuddle up for a movie night.

Den Stays Cozy With Wood Beams, Fireplace

This cozy den simply wouldn't be complete without a fireplace. Notice how the designers used wood beams and a wood entertainment center to complement the rustic feature and make it feel like a natural part of the room.

Neutral Master Suite With Upholstered Bed

Simple and serene, this master bedroom features an elegant platform bed with an upholstered headboard and gray pillows. Two wooden nightstands sit on either side, both complementing the ceiling beams and keeping evening essentials within easy reach.

Modern Master Bath With Sleek Wood Vanity

With a sleek, wood-trimmed mirror and matching vanity, the master bathroom is the perfect mix of modern and rustic. His-and-her sinks ensure the owners have plenty of elbow room as well.
