Here in the Bitterroot Valley, the state of Montana is commonly referred to as “The Last Best Place”. With serene, humbling mountain views everywhere you look, it’s no surprise that many people in Montana choose to live in rustic log homes. These log homes inspire an appreciation for nature and a give a nod to the rich cultural history that Montana offers. As no two people are alike, however, all log cabins are not for everyone. In this post, we’ll lay out ten different types of log cabins, and aid you in finding some design inspiration through our products. Off we go!
The Bare Bones Cabin
The Historic Revamp
A bison skull in classic white would be a perfect compliment for a home like this. The pristine white color on the skull will brighten up any room, and the color also allows it to remain neutral. It will fit with any color scheme, and will allow you to bring a little bit of western flair into your historic cabin.
The Tiny Log Cabin
In a space so small, it is important to choose your decorations wisely. We think that our Wolf Painted Bison Skull would be a great statement for this small space. It adds a strong design element, which will simultaneously impress your guests and brighten up your space.
The Glamp Cabin
We love the look of these bison-fur pillows. Since Glamp Cabins don’t allow much room for decoration, it is important to integrate chic design pieces without overwhelming the space. With its neutral, soft exterior, we think that a bison fur accent pillow would be just the thing.
The Rustic-Chic Log Cabin
The Weekend Getaway Cabin
Do you ever feel like you need to take a step back and get away from it all? Weekend Getaway cabins are known for sitting in a secluded area, with all of the amenities necessary for an enjoyable, stress-free weekend. With extra linens ready to go and a cold, refreshing dip in the pool calling your name, how could you go wrong?
The Family Lake House
Summer trips to the family lakehouse have become a common memory for people across the nation. Families love to take trips up to the lakehouse to spend quality time with their loved ones and escape their lives for a few days. Cabin-style lake houses offer the functionality of a traditional lakehouse with the comfort-inducing design elements of a log cabin.
Since these cabins are generally in cold, snowy locations, we think that our bison hide mittens would be a great, functional accent piece to hang next to your front door. That way, they’ll be easily accessible to warm your hands when you want to go outside for some skiing or snowshoeing.
The Hybrid Log Home
Hybrid log homes are new to the scene, but are just as cool as the rest of the cabin options listed here. People generally choose Hybrid log cabins to be their full-time residence since they incorporate log cabin aspects on the exterior of the home, while allowing the inside of the home to be more traditional. This way, you can make an outdoorsy, log cabin statement on the outside of your home while enjoying bright, traditional design elements on the inside of the home.
Imagine the gorgeous contrast that will be created when our pewter bison skull is hung on a white wall inside a Hybrid cabin home. This will be an excellent conversation piece that will offset the traditional log cabin feel with a more modern aesthetic.
The Country Mansion

Imagine the look on anyone’s face as they drive up to a beautiful mansion crafted in the traditional log-cabin style. With enough bedrooms and bathrooms for any number of guests, you can share your cabin mansion with everyone that you care about.
For a house built to impress, we think that a full bison shoulder mount would be a great statement piece. The mount would go perfectly in the entryway of your home, over the fireplace, or in the living room. It will play beautifully off of the rest of your decorations with its neutral shades brown, and it will be sure to stun anyone who lays eyes on it.
