I, Bob Morris, grew up in Anaconda and after college I spent my career in Mexico and in Southern California working in the aerospace & electronic industries. I returned to the community of my birth after retirement. Home again! My wife, Joan grew up outside Chicago and has lived in Montana for the past 40 years. She was Director of the Western Montana Metal Health Center. We are currently retired and reside in Anaconda in the summer and San Diego, CA in the winter.
Why Georgetown: We built this house after selling our electronics business in San Diego. We first owned a smaller house nearby but I always envisioned spending my final years on a mountaintop to see the sun come up in the morning and go down in the evening to fish, ski, hike and snowmobile right out my door. It's a dream come true.
The Unique Benefits at this Lodge: We built this house in 1993 and we never get tired of the magnificent view over the lake. And to see the wonderful mountains, forests and animals and experience the beauty and craftsmanship of a log house is beyond description. if I had it to do over again I would not change a thing, neither the location or the house itself, there is nothing to compare it with. Western Montana is in a class all of its own and luckily this part of it is still relatively undiscovered. We are so pleased to be able to share it with you.
