Philipsburg is an idyllic town tucked up against the Flint Mountain Range abounding in outdoor activities and friendly western hospitality. Lining a historic downtown Main Street you’ll find a brew pub, incredible Sweet Shop candy store (not to be missed), Saphire Gallery with locally mined stones, restaurants, unique gift shops, a fly fishing store, antiques and one of the best thrift stores around. Within 15 minutes is the Discovery Ski Resort with a range of skiing options, Georgetown Lake Recreation Area and Granite (ghost mining town). Just outside of town you can enjoy world class fly fishing, hike, mountain bike or picnic within sight of the continental. A visit will not be complete without spotting moose, elk, mountain goats or deer. There's even a Jack Nicolas designed golf course (with black sand) only a half hour away in Anaconda.


Owner info

Year Purchased: 1998

About the owner: We are Mike & Rita. We live at the gateway to the San Juan Islands in the seaside community of Anacortes north of Seattle - but we both grew up in the Rocky Mountains. We are busy professionals with an extended family nearby - we love travel, books, art, good food and wine and experiencing the world around us.

Why the Owner Chose Philipsburg:
Our fist visit to Philipsburg was like stepping back in time. We fell in love with the mountain setting, the amazing friendliness of the folks in town and all of the activities available around this community. It didn't take us long to decide that this is a place where we could see ourselves spending more time as we moved toward and into retirement. We found this little comfortable house filled with original charm, that was the perfect size for our needs. Just recently we decided since we have this great place that we are not yet able to utilize all that often, maybe we should share it with others who are looking for a similar experience. We decided to call our house James Croft to reflect our Scottish love and heritage.

The Unique Benefits at this House:
Coming from the soggy northwest, we always rave about the light in our house. The glassed-in front porch and paned windows get the first rays of morning sun - add in a good cup of coffee and it's a perfect start to a day. The enclosed back porch similarly captures the evening light & sunset. We love the authentic Craftsman touches throughout the house - the glass french doors into the main bedroom - the built in closets and bookshevles - the wood trim throughout the house. While it's not fancy, we've done our best to make James Croft cozy and comfortable!
