Celebrity Homes: Dennis Quaid’s House in Montana – Aspen and fir trees surround the actor’s home, which sits on 500 acres, in Montana’s Paradise Valley. Aspen and fir trees surround the wood-and-stone residence of actor Dennis Quaid, on 500 acres once partly owned by actor Warren Oates in Montana’s Paradise Valley. At right is the observatory. “I was into astronomy as a kid,” says Quaid. “Now I sit and watch the stars.”
“I wanted muted colors,” says Quaid. “And I wanted the house to look as if it had been here, in the wild, for 100 years.” The oak table and benches in the dining room came from director and screenwriter Sam Peckinpah, who lived in a cabin on nearby land purchased by Quaid.
Centering the kitchen, which is accessible from the dining room through a stone walkway, is a two-sided fireplace that adjoins the great room. Throughout the house, distressed and stained planks salvaged from the Great Chicago Fire of 1871 are used as flooring. The master suite overlooks a stand of trees behind the house. Above the bed, which Quaid purchased from actress Sandra Bullock, is a photograph of the cast of Buffalo Bill’s Wild West show. A 19th-century Ersari rug is on the floor.
Quaid with Henry and Clyde, who catches a ride on Jupiter Ray, one of five horses roaming the camp. “I keep them well away from the house—so we can’t smell them,” he quips. “My next project is to build them a big bam of their own.” Quaid and his chocolate Labrador retriever Henry beside a turn-of-the-last-century cabin along a pond he put in near the main house. The cabin has an adjacent dock from which the actor fly-fishes. The property, which he named Camp Warren Oates, is used year-round.
