Renovation

A Montana River Ranch is Reborn

Whenever Sherry O’Hearn would leave her mountain vacation home near Montana’s Glacier National Park, after about five minutes she’d pass a log cabin along the flats of the Swan River. Looking across the pasture on one trip to town, she could scarcely make out the cabin’s “for sale” sign partially obscured by trees.

“It was a dilapidated building and though it was in horrible disrepair, we could see it had just great bones,” says Sherry, who was taken with the great width of the exterior logs and the structure’s location right up against the river.

She and her husband Mike decided it was too great of a find to pass up. So they set about remodeling the four-bedroom, three-bathroom cabin for a guesthouse.
