This charming miner's house-of-the-past is completely remodeled, inside and out. It is cozy for a couple or a great way for a family or group of 8-10 to gather, share meals and enjoy the area. The main house has 2 bedrooms and sleeps 6; additionally, the couch in the living room makes into a queen bed. The detached studio guest house features a queen bed, kitchenette and bath. They can be rented individually or together.
The quaint community of Philipsburg boasts the country's largest candy store and is great fun to explore. 'Winnie's Cottage' is an easy 5-minute walk to the heart of downtown Philipsburg, with it's local summer theater and mining town character. Panning for sapphires is a must!
The Philipsburg Valley touts 300 days of sunshine; family and advanced skiing is 20 minutes away at Discovery Ski Area, overlooking lovely Georgetown Lake.
Blue ribbon fly fishing on Rock Creek, Flint Creek and local lakes satisfies the most ardent fisherman. For summer or winter recreation the stunningly beautiful area offers endless possibilities. Just an hour east of Missoula and west of Butte, it's a great location from which to explore Montana's Gold Country.
We have had the most respectful and wonderful renters in our house since the remodel completion in November 2011! My trepidations are gone about sharing this little jewel, no problem with dogs which validates offering it to pet owners like us. Thanks to our expanding family of travelers!
We would love to see fishermen in the fall and spring: Rock Creek, Flint Creek and Georgetown Lake are a stones throw away and the magnificent rivers of western Montana are a short and picturesque drive in any direction.
