Yellowstone is the latest hit TV drama from Paramount that has millions of viewers longing for the glorious lifestyle of the Dutton family tree – well, without the thickened plot of ranchers-versus-newcomers, of course. With the big open sky, picturesque mountain views, and quintessential western backdrop so gorgeously displayed in each episode, who wouldn’t want to live out the American Dream in the beautiful valleys of the Pacific Northwest?

Well, we have good news: it’s possible.

Thanks to Whitetail Club’s unique Design-Build Collection, prospective buyers can customize their luxury mountain homes to create the world-class property of their dreams without the hassle of long- and extraneous-time commitments. This means that fans of the hit TV series can experience a taste of mountain luxury right in the heart of McCall, Idaho.


Eerily similar to Yellowstone’s Paradise Valley, McCall offers small-town charm, warm and welcoming people at every turn, and natural wonders that can’t be found anywhere else. McCall is even located near federally managed land called the Payette National Forest – which boasts 2.3 million acres. McCall also has a rich history that involves three Native American tribes and a patriarch named Thomas McCall.

In short, Thomas and his wife Louisa traded a troupe of horses with Sam Dever back in 1889-1891 for a cabin and 160 acres of land. Tom, his wife, four sons, and a daughter all lived in that cabin, and Tom went on to establish a school, hotel, saloon, and post office, where he took on the role of postmaster. With the help of his friends and colleagues, McCall grew rapidly and even gained Hollywood’s attention in 1938, when the town was selected as the location to film the Academy Award-nominated Northwest Passage. The film starred performances by American actors Spencer Tracy, Robert Young, and Walter Brennan.

Today, McCall is a vibrant destination surrounded by pine-covered mountains and offers year-round adventure for outdoor lovers. Basically, it’s the real-life version of Paradise Valley without the scripted drama – what more could anyone ask for?


Now, for the fun part: building a custom mountain-view home that even James Dutton would be amazed by. The customization opportunities are endless, with seven design options in the Whitetail Club’s Design-Build Collection. Design options include:

Highlands – these gorgeous single-family homes offer 5,837 sq. ft., open floor plans, generous outdoor space, and floor-to-ceiling windows that capture breathtaking panoramic views of McCall.

Mountain Time – this spacious home design option is located in the private Rocky Mountain West community. It features 6,767 sq. ft., several outdoor and indoor living and entertainment areas that incorporate natural lighting, and an airy, open concept ideal for growing families looking to settle down in their forever home.

Evergreen – retirees, active families, and empty nesters alike will enjoy this luxurious mountain and lake home design, which features 6,394 sq. ft., lavish accommodations, including a media room, fireplace, and a covered deck area that’s perfect for entertaining guests. This design also includes a mudroom.


While Kevin Costner’s Yellowstone is filmed in Darby, Montana, Idaho also offers the same panoramic views of ranches and large stretches of land with casual sightings of moose and elk. When living in McCall, ID, locals and visitors alike can go out for a morning of horseback riding through the backcountry, followed by an afternoon of fly fishing in the town’s alpine lakes and rivers.

That said, residents of Whitetail Club have exclusive access to groomed hiking, biking, and Nordic skiing trails, making it accessible to fulfill your dreams of an adventure-driven lifestyle with all the perks of a luxurious private club. If you’re looking for a balance between rugged mountain living and country club amenities, Whitetail Club can also cater to your needs. Featuring an 18-hole, par-72 golf course designed by Roger Packard and two-time U.S. Open champion Andy North, golf aficionados of all skill types can get away for a stress-free afternoon.
