Owner info

Year Purchased: 2002

About the owner: Bob retired as a forestry professor from Auburn University in 2001 and he and Nancy immediately started their western adventure in Philipsburg. Originally form South Carolina, the couple has lived in Georgia, New York, Oklahoma as well as Alabama. True southerners, but with a spirit of wander and have never found a place or people they did not love. They have two sons with wonderful families (7 grandchildren) who live in the South, but love to visit MT. Bob and Nancy travel South often in their RV to spend quality time with their families. Bob is an avid hunter and fisherman and Nancy is right there with him on every excursion. Nancy brings sanity to the couple and lovingly makes their home the most comfortable place to be as you will experience when you visit.

Why the Owner Chose Philipsburg:
Having spent many years hunting in CO, the West was not completely new to Bob and Nancy. When Philipsburg was recommended by a friend, it reminded them of wonderful experiences in CO. After moving early in 2002, the couple fell in love with the people, community and everything else they found. They opened a bed and breakfast and ran it during the summer of 2002 but found not enough traffic to support an all year business. When the idea to put their home up for a vacation rental surfaced in 2009, it seemed like a great idea because of the bed and breakfast experience.

The Unique Benefits at this House:
The name 'Cozy Home' is a perfect description of this little home that has evolved from a nineteenth century mining cabin in a very warm and comfortable place to take in the charm of Philipsburg. Expect to have a restful retreat from all the exciting activities available. While Philipsburg dining is superb, it is nice to have a fully functioning kitchen with an outside grill to prepare your own meals just the way you want them. While close to town, you are far enough away to have peace and quiet if that is your choosing. Staying at the Cozy Home in Philipsburg will be an unforgettable experience.
