Cool Philipsburg Place to stay. clean new 4 season YURT
About Todd Frank
My wife and I are Native Montanan's, Mary grew up in Philipsburg and her family has been in the area since the late 1800's. We wanted a place that we could use but also a place for friends,family and vacationing folks could stay. We live in Missoula - about 80 miles from Philipsburg but spend most of our free time around the area. My wife's parents still live in town so we have a local contact.
Todd Frank purchased this Bungalow in 2014
Why Todd Frank chose Philipsburg
We have owned this property for almost 30 years and decided to build a Yurt on the property as an alternative to building a small home. It allows us some flexibility and we think they are amazing and unique structures. It has amazing deck space that overlooks the town and ice rink. We think it is a great location to walk downtown and shop, have a beer at the brewery or just hang out.
What makes this Bungalow unique
Most folks have never stayed in a Yurt and we think it is a unique experience that people will really enjoy, being able to watch a lightning storm through the dome or watch the stars is a really fun feature. The Yurt also allowed us to build a very efficient space. It is Only heated fully when occupied so all the plumbing is contained in a small space that is very efficient to heat when the Yurt is not Occupied.
100% refund if canceled at least 30 days before arrival date. 50% refund if canceled at least 14 days before arrival date.
Love the Yurt!
We came up and had a great Father’s Day and explored Philipsburg and surrounding area! The Brewery and Bricks pub are always fun and welcoming.
See you again!!
Great location and perfect layout for a group!
We had a great time at the yurt. The layout was great for 6, we never felt cramped. It was perfect to be able to walk to down town P-burg each day/evening. Yurt was clean and cozy!
The yurt Burg
The yurt would be fine with a young family only. We were 2 sisters and their was only 1 comfortable bed in the one bedroom. One of us took to the loft (very uncomfortable) so hot the couch, not good sleeping either. There was no coffee and we ran out of toilet paper and there was no backup.
Thanks for the Feedback. It was a mid August Stay so yes the Yurt can be a bit warm until the sun goes down, There is AC and if it is on all day it helps but it is still Mid August.
We do not supply coffee for guests. We do try to stock some basic spices.
The woman who cleans for us just plain missed the backstock TP, such a bummer and had we gotten a call would have been there in a few minutes to grab some out of the storage shed, it was plain human error on her part, and since we did not know we could not remedy it, sorry.
As for the beds, Yep it is a Yurt with a sleeping loft, as advertised on the site. The fold out couch on the main level is the best we could by with a meomory foam mattress, sorry it was not adequate for you. It sounds like you decided to utilize the loft. We have 2 twin beds and a full sized bed and all three are what I would characterize as normal quality, with 2 being new when we built the yurt in 2015 and one we had, with over 300 guests the only complaint we have gotten outside of no WIFI is this one. We have spoken to the cleaning staff and can assure folks the TP shortage is not something that will happen again. Regards

Clean and spacious, yet cozy. Great kitchen and very comfortable beds.
Close proximity to shops & restaurants with a great view of the town of Philipsburg. We’d never stayed in a yurt before and we’re so glad that we were able to experience the Burg Yurt! They’ve thought of everything to make your stay enjoyable, including informative books that tell about the area. Even though it rained our first day, we stayed warm & dry by the gas stove. There is also an air conditioner & fans, making it the perfect place to stay in all seasons. We will definitely be planning a return visit.
We had a wonderful time
We had a wonder time at the Yurt. Thank you for providing a nice place to stay. Everything was perfect. Thank you
We loved staying in the yurt. It was stocked with everything that we needed. It was very comfortable and the views were fantastic! We had our dog with us and it worked out perfectly. We will definitely go back.
Philipsburg is a great vacation spot. fishing, hunting, skiing, hiking, you name it is all within just minutes of town. Basing in town is a smart option if some of the group want to fish or ski and some want to do other activities like dig for sapphires, or explore old mining towns, and find second hand treasures
