About Shonna Harper

We are native Montanans that love the outdoors, exploring, learning about the mining history in our area and ESPECIALLY LOVE SAPPHIRE MINING at the Gem Mountain mine! Once you find a big one you will be hooked for life!

Shonna Harper purchased this cabin in 2016

Why Shonna Harper chose Philipsburg

With abundant year round outdoor activities so close to Philipsburg and all the mining history throughout the area it was important to have a place where family and friends could come and experience all of the amazing activities close by such as skiing at Discovery, blue ribbon fly fishing on Rock Creek, boating or ice fishing at Georgetown Lake, sapphire mining at the Gem Mountain mine, ice skating and hockey at Winninghoff Park, cross country skiing, Discovery summer bicycle trails, visiting the many nearby ghost towns, ample hunting and fishing, golfing at the 3 courses in Anaconda, snowmobiling, taking a back country ATV or jeep ride, sampling fudge at the candy store, eating BBQ, watching a play at the Opera House, visiting the museums or sipping a micro-brew at the local brewery.

What makes this cabin unique

This miners cabin was originally located at the nearby silver mine and after the owner's husband passed away, she had it moved to the town of Philipsburg. The logs were cut and shaped by a true craftsman and are in excellent condition.  We have been building log homes for 20 years and knew we had to bring this old beauty back to life so family and guests could enjoy it for many years to come!

Perfect for our weekend getaway!

  • 5 of 5

This cozy cabin was so nice for our family weekend getaway. We had everything we needed and were comfortable during our two night stay. Lovely touches throughout the restored cabin. We even had a family fun game night with the board games available in the loft. Highly recommend!

We’ll be back!

  • 5 of 5

This charming cabin is everything it seems and more. The craftsmanship is apparent in the restoration of this vintage cabin. All the amenities are well-considered...even fresh basics in the fridge.

The cabin is across the street from an utterly unassuming but incredible pizza place and a short walk downtown to more dining and shopping options.

Jay and Shonna were responsive and most accommodating. We loved it in the middle of winter and look forward to returning in spring and summer.
