Winning details: Rising from a massive tawny-hued foundation of local Harlow stone to a veritable forest of majestic roof timbers, this six-bedroom, three-story lodge in The Yellowstone Club—our 2009 Home of the Year—seems at first glance to have grown organically from its natural surroundings in Big Sky, Montana.
