Correct me if I'm wrong, but shouldn't the answer be "on the mountain"? I feel like if you have a house "in the mountain" is akin to someone living in a cave dug in the mountain. If a house is built on the surface of a mountain, be it on top, side, or the foot, it is "on" the mountain. However, I have heard the expression "in the mountains" which means "in the mountainous area".

'in the mountains' would make more sense.
