LEXI DUPONT'S IDAHO TINY HOME IS THE EXCEPTION TO THE RULE
Tiny houses are not what you think of when you hear "celebrity home," but when professional big-mountain freeskier Lexi Dupont is not traveling the world, she chooses to live simply in her 500-square-foot geodesic dome in Idaho. The cozy ski-shack sits next to the Warm Springs River at the base of the ski hill, surrounded by old-growth pines and sounds of the Warm Springs River.

JOHN DENVER'S ROCKY MOUNTAIN HOME
The man who penned the lyrics, “Hey, it’s good to be back home again,” clearly knew about laid-back mountain comfort. The legendary high-country troubadour’s Aspen, Colorado, compound is comprised of a six-bedroom contemporary main house and a five-bedroom guesthouse (once used as a recording studio) linked by a scenic walking path along the waters of Red Mountain Ditch.

THIS HOUSE DOESN'T BELONG TO A CELEBRITY… IT IS A CELEBRITY
Dust off your VHS copy of the 1992 movie "The Bodyguard" and fast-forward to the scene in which Kevin Costner dives off a snowy pier to save a young boy from that about-to-explode boat. That pier belongs to Tallac House, this rustic lodge-style retreat on the shore of Fallen Leaf Lake, just a mile or so from Lake Tahoe.
