Located near Colorado's White River, the Westlands Ranch is a compound designed for the billionaire outdoorsman. Roughly 20 minutes outside of Meeker, this 4,603 acre compound includes five miles of streams for river fishing, a private park-like forest for those into big game hunting and a tennis court, four-hole golf course (designed by THE Greg Norman) and a main house that is just shy of 20,000 square feet. The home contains five bedrooms, a game room, wine cellar, expansive terraces and swimming pools and two guest cabins for when the relatives come to visit. Currently being offered by Hall&Hall for just under $50 million. #HouseGoals

Parkipelago - Artificial Island Chain
This is a pretty neat find for 'real estate' fans. Fokstrot - a Danish design studio - has started a project called the Copenhagen Islands. The islands are actually man-made platforms that will be daisy-chained throughout Copenhagen's southern harbor to resemble a sort of 'parkipelago.' Each platform will serve a unique purpose: a cafe, a sauna, a diving board, a mussel farm - and as a chain they can support full-featured event space for concerts gatherings and festivals. Using clean design and simple aesthetic, these islands are a smart way to take advantage of the beautiful and abundant Copenhagen waters and attract tourists and locals alike.
Montana Treehouse Retreat at Glacier National Park
As kids, we dreamed of building tree houses big enough to live and play in. Today, thanks to Airbnb, such a tree house exists. Located in Glacier National Park is this 500 square foot tree house. A spiral staircase wraps around a giant Douglas fir tree and leads you into the main living area. There are 2 outside deck areas featuring gorgeous views of the surrounding lakes, mountains and forests. There is a full kitchen, dishwasher and stove as well as a bathroom with full sized shower and toilets. The master suite has a comfortable queen mattress and additional sleeping quarters in the common room accommodate up to 4 guests. For activities, there is Whitefish Mountain Ski Resort, Flathead Lake, and plenty of fishing, rafting, boating, hiking and more Montanan adventures.
