Pettit Lake Cabins

A dreamy mountain escape on the shores of Pettit Lake.

No Challenge Too Great

Nestled on the shores of Pettit Lake, these three cabins offer a private escape in the heart of the Sawtooth National Forest. Remote access and winter weather conditions were no match for our talented and experienced team. Armed with snowcats, snowmobiles and our Proven Process, the Lloyd team transformed these aging cabins into comfortable and sustainable living spaces without compromising the rustic charm of the original architecture.

Rustic Charm Meets Contemporary Style

Staying true to the original cabin design while updating the structure to accommodate modern creature comforts was a fun and interesting puzzle to solve. Original fireplaces were kept and paired with updated, large timber accents to balance the rustic charm of the cabins with contemporary style. Thoughtful and unique tile was expertly installed throughout the kitchens and bathrooms to bring a level of elegance and sophistication to the cabin aesthetic. Large windows allow ample natural light to blanket breakfast nooks and living areas, while giving residents and guests a front-row seat to the wonder of nature.

Building Sustainably

Beetle Kill Pine is the term for pine trees killed by bark beetles throughout the U.S. and Canada. It gets a distinctly blue hue from a fungus bark beetles carry which kills the tree, but it does not affect the structural integrity of the wood if harvested within a few years. Beetle Kill Pine is a sustainable building material because the unique color requires no paint or stain to enhance it, and harvesting Beetle Kill Pine minimizes fire danger in forests affected by the disease.

The Lloyd Difference

As long-time mountain dwellers, we know what it takes to build a custom home that meets the unique needs of mountain living. The remote location of the Pettit Lake Cabins posed several logistical challenges we had to carefully plan for including transportation of materials and equipment to the site, taking into consideration the rugged terrain and winter weather conditions. Our team also had to work closely with the cabin owners to ensure that the renovations met their specific needs and preferences. We installed climate controlled storage to keep mountain gear safe and ready to use. The Pettit Lake Cabins project is a shining example of our commitment to quality craftsmanship, sustainable building, and customer satisfaction.
