About Bina Eggensperger or Bonnie mcGowanor cherie Bowman-lyons
Bowman Recreation is owned by 5 sisters. Our Mom who at 100 years young still enjoys family time at the lake, passed our cabin and lakeshore land to us. Our parents have owned cabins on Georgetown like since the early 1960's. We grew up spending summer water skiing and fishing on the Lake and sledding in the winters. In 1975 Discovery Ski Area opened up and we had more reasons to come to the lake in the winter. Our parents built their vacation property in the Phillipsburg Bay area in 1980 and with the help of their daughters and son-in-laws built a new cabin on the lakeshore. In addition our aunt and uncle installed a home on the adjacent lakeshore property. Auntie Viv loved spoiling us and our kids. Our kids grew up making a mad dash to Vivs place for ice cream cones as soon as they arrived at the lake. We are now spread out living in various locations across the state and our kids are in numerous states from California to New York. Georgetown Lake is our gathering place to spend time with family, relax, try to beat each other at card games and mostly laugh.
Why Bina Eggensperger or Bonnie mcGowanor cherie Bowman-lyons chose Anaconda
Ten years after our beloved Aunt Viv died our cousins sold us their property adjacent to ours in August of 2017. After purchasing Viv's Place we spent the fall of 2017 and spring of 2018 updating the home and improving the shoreline property. Now it's ready for others to experience the fun and beauty of Georgetown Lake that we have known all our lives.
What makes this House unique
We love our location on the lakeshore and the fun family time it affords us. We're able to watch osprey and eagles fish, listen to grebes and ducks and observe wildlife up close from the comfort of the deck. There is serenity in swinging under the trees by the beachfront watching sunsets over the Pintler Mountain range. we enjoy roasting marshmellows at the campfire in the evening while we swap stories, sing songs, and watch the stars and the occasional Northern lights show. We love the abundance of activities on and around the lake year round from boating, kayaking, paddleboarding, swimming, fishing, biking and hiking to skiing, snowshoeing, sledding, snowmobiling, skating and icefishing. We appreciate the convenience of being close proximity to the reasonably priced Jack Nicklaus Golf Course in Anaconda, and the fun town on Phillipsburg. But most of all, we are thrilled to be able to share with family and friends the idyllic vacation atmosphere that we have enjoyed since childhood at Georgetown Lake.

Great location right on the lake. Comfortable house. A great place to stay and play.
I enjoyed my stay here. It’s a clean, simple house with two bedrooms and baths. The front living area is comfortable. The kitchen is well equipped. We cooked several meals there and we had everything we needed. Brand new bbq grill was top notch. Great fire pit. Several kayaks and a two person paddle boat. The TV set up was funky. DVD player worked well. The satellite system didn’t work for us but we didn’t care that much. I’m sure had we called Cherie she would have helped us out. I would stay here again without hesitation. And a big bull moose walked right past the picture window which was really cool.
Perfect Place on the Water
We loved Viv's place! The property was gorgeous and we appreciated the access to Georgetown Lake just steps from our front door. The paddle boat and kayaks were fun to use and the neighbors friendly. The home is well stocked for your stay - including laundry detergent/fabric softener and luxurious towels. More than enough room for ten people with the pull out couch and roll away bed. Sunsets bouncing off the Pintlers in the distance was phenomenal.
As others have written, the owners have a place steps away next door so if you are bothered by that / prefer privacy you might take heed. Our interaction was very pleasant and they were very helpful when needing more firewood. Nice folks with a beautiful rental - we really enjoyed every moment of our stay!
Great place! Great Owners! Thank you!!
We enjoyed our stay very much! Kids had a blast swimming in the lake, cabin was well stocked, and the owners couldn’t have been nicer or easier to work with. Thank you!
We’re thrilled your family enjoyed the dock, beach, lake, and cabin. We’re very fortunate to have such a beautiful recreational area for family time
Comfortable, picturesque, and fun for the whole family and friends.
We had a great stay at Viv's place. The home was comfortable and well appointed for our party of 8 (3 adults, 5 kids.)
The resident Moose was a little reticent but we did get a good view of him up on the hill behind the house.
Provided watercraft, fishing and jumping off the dock, and campfires with s'mores kept us happy all day.
After a full day enjoying the lake we were able to get a movie set up using our netflix on the TV. It was a nice added bonus for tired kids.
We've rented at lots of places around Georgetowon Lake and this is now a favorite.
Just wow! Home away from home. GREAT LOCATION RIGHT ON BEACH LOT OF AMENITIES. WE HAD A GREAT TIME!
Idyllic, relaxing and very comfortable
We stay at places like this fairly often and I can say this was our favorite. The place is super comfortable with everything you need. The lake is indeed steps away (we have been burned by misleading pictures before) and there are nice kayaks and a paddle boat to get around on. Note the owners have a cabin right next door, they were never there when we were except at check in. They are super super nice but if that bothers you check to see if they will be there or not. There is lots to do in the area, a 20 minute drive to Philipsburg for bbq and ice cream, or lots of hiking and a great biking road around the lake. Also good fishing. There are lots of nice little touches like a fruit bowl which we devoured and are much healthier for it. Highly recommend!
