The Wall Street Journal recently published an article featuring Bob Hurwitz’s listing for the incredible private Lazy Bay Island estate in magnificent Northwest Montana. The article describes how owner former Montana state senator Dan Weinberg purchased the 10-acre island on Whitefish Lake for $4.5 million, and began construction of the luxury log cabin in 1999. The 7,500-square-foot cabin with five bedrooms and five baths was completed in 2001 with the island connecting to the mainland via a short bridge.
Almost every room in this home has spectacular views of the Whitefish Lake or the Whitefish Mountains of beautiful Big Sky. The gourmet kitchen, 1,000-bottle wine center and home theater are excellent for entertaining. Mr. Weinberg decided to put the home on the market due to the high maintenance of the large estate despite that he will miss the property and the wildlife that frequented it, especially the bald eagles, deer and ducklings. Originally listed for $17 million back in 2008, the Lazy Bay Island cabin is now listed at $9 million.
