Jack Hanna’s Cozy Log Cabin in Montana

by hookedonhouses on November 30, 2011

This charming, 760 square-foot log cabin belongs to famous animal expert and zookeeper Jack Hanna. It was named Elk Cabin because it sits on an old elk farm in Montana, just outside Bigfork, but since he shares this secluded retreat with his wife Suzi, they call it their “Honeymoon Suite.”

I love the front porch. I’d be sitting right here in this rocking chair right now if I could!

They didn’t use any drywall in the cabin. Most of it was built with 8″ x 12″ white pine logs from Idaho.

They wanted the cabin to look old and authentic but to have all of the comforts of home, too. Hanna’s friend and homebuilder Randy Baker says, “We hid the TV, refrigerator, dishwasher and all the electrical work behind custom panels designed to match the cabinetry.”

The cabin is small and simple, with only a living room, kitchen, bed loft and bath. (Floorplan here.)

We like renting log cabins for family vacations. There’s just something about them that’s cozy and relaxing. One like this brings out the Little House on the Prairie fantasies of my youth… :)

You can learn more about Jack Hanna and what he’s up to on his website.
