Fresh mountain air and proximity to the slopes are top of mind in the latest look at luxury real estate worldwide. From a lakeside home in Montana to a modern mountain retreat in Northern California to a traditional mountain-view house in Colorado, here’s a look at what about $2 million buys right now in three mountain settings.
Lakeside living at its finest, this modern retreat abutting Glen Lake in Eureka, Montana, has a front-row seat of the action with a massive outdoor deck that overlooks the water. The views are equally spectacular inside, where floor-to-ceiling windows in the living room create the sense of floating above the water.
Features: Open-concept living space on the main floor incorporates a vaulted-ceiling living room with a fireplace, an updated chef’s kitchen and a dining area. There are five bedrooms and four bathrooms in more than 4,000 square feet of living space including a primary suite with a wall of windows that center on the lake.
Other perks: World-class outdoor activities are just a stone’s throw from the site and include a competition water/ski slalom course, hiking trails and fishing holes. Also nearby are coveted golf courses including the links at Indian Springs Ranch and Wilderness Club Montana.

This traditional home in Frisco, Colorado, is situated near the Frisco Nordic center on an oversized lot. Lake Dillon, the Frisco Marina and Main Street are just a short walk from the property, which is bordered by mature trees and a meandering stream.
Features: Drawing from chalet-style design elements, the two-story house looks the part of a mountain retreat with its stone accents, half-timbering and clapboard siding. The rock and wood details are continued inside in the home’s accent walls, ceilings and millwork.
Other perks: The updated kitchen, which incorporates an island and wine storage, has a breakfast area and sliding glass doors that open to a wide balcony. Also within some 3,300 square feet of living space are three bedrooms, three bathrooms, and a massive recreation room.
