Overview

About the property

Country House, 3 Bedrooms + TV room with pull out sofa, 2.5 Baths,

Peace and quiet are just over the ridge from the hubbub of Georgetown Lake. Our 3 bedrooms are furnished with three queens a double pull out sofa and a twin bed. . More sleeping is available in the Game room for camper kids. Snowmobile or four wheel right from our front door to hundreds of miles of trails.

Perched on a forested hillside, our house is just 2.2 miles from the nearest public boat launch, beach and dock on Georgetown Lake. 44 Miles from Butte, 90 miles from Missoula and 6 miles from Philipsburg you can gaze out over the Flint Creek Valley at the Sapphire Mountains from the kitchen, deck or dining/living room. Discovery Basin Ski Area is just 20 minutes away and there's a great loop for cross country skiers, hikers and joggers right from the house. Old Works Golf Course in Anaconda is 30 minutes away and was rated in the 'TOP TEN PUBLIC COURSES' by Golf Magazine. Elk, Deer, Bear and a curious Red Fox are regular visitors. There's a spring creek on our western property boundary and mining ruins just upstream.

THE FISHING UP HERE IS INCREDIBLE! Flint Creek, Georgetown Lake, East Fork Reservoir, Silver Lake and renowned Rock Creek are all fifteen minutes drive or less. There are literally dozens of mountain lakes within an easy hike of the wilderness boundary and several you can drive right to.

Discovery Basin is a mom 'n pop ski area with great beginner terrain and some steep n deep stuff off the backside for more advanced riders. If you are coming in the winter months, you will need to use a 4 wheel drive vehicle, just as we advise you to use on the road to Discovery Ski Area.

There's close access to as much public hunting as you could wish for. Some deer, lots of elk and bear. Granite Ghost Town is 8 miles away and sapphire mining is about the same distance. Philipsburg offers a grocery store, galleries and restaurants. One of the coolest candy stores I've seen is right across from a summer theater with musicals and such. Antiques, art and cowboy bars line Broadway in 'P-Burg'. We will consider pets with a deposit. No internet but the cell service is decent 3G.

About Pamela Nation

We have chosen this beautiful location as a way to spend time with our son, a transplanted Montanan. We hope to share the natural beauty and interesting location with others when we cannot be there. So, welcome to our ultra comfortable home away from home in the mountains.

Pamela Nation purchased this house in 2009

Why Pamela Nation chose Philipsburg

Proximity to recreation, scenery, privacy and family location

What makes this house unique

Peace and quiet. Comfort and awesome fishing and skiing. Hiking, sight seeing in the fun western town of Philipsburg. Evening stars while regrouping around the fire pit at the end of the day.

Lovely cabin in a remote location!

  • 5 of 5

We had a wonderful stay and will definitely book here again. The kitchen had everything we needed and was well organized. There was only 3 of us so there was a lot of unused space! The firepit was great and we used it 2 of the 3 nights we were there and the chopped wood was ready for the burning. The stargazing was amazing! Fell in love with the Big Sky Country! Getting there was a bit tricky and much further up the dirt road than I expected it to be but we found it! When the road splits into 3, just pass American Way, stay to the left and follow it up a long way and you will be pleasantly surprised with what you find at the end.

Very Nice Stay.

  • 5 of 5

This was a great property. It is off the beaten path. Well furnished and very comfortable. I would highly recommend it. Drank coffee each morning on the deck that over looked the Flint Creek Valley. Awesome views and so peaceful.

Wonderful home, beautiful forest location, remote.

  • 4 of 5

We shared a wonderful family time. We enjoyed the deck where we played cards, ate, and saw wildlife (including a moose mama with her baby as well as a fox!) The house was more remote than I expected, but we did get used to the windy dirt roads in and out. From the house we took outings to Rock Creek, Twin Lakes, Storm Lake and, of course, Georgetown Lake and Philipsburg. First week of July turned out to be perfect—so green and our hillside dotted with wildflowers.

Beautiful location and house, rough road in

  • 5 of 5

This place has everything you need, but the road in was not for the faint of heart. We grew up driving bad Montana roads for fun, but the road up the hill was solid ice when we arrived at the end of March. So bad that we met everyone else at the highway and chauffeured them up the hill once they arrived. Our tundra with 4-wheel drive was all over the place and it took a few trips up and down to develop a safe track for everyone else. They say 4-wheel drive required and they absolutely mean it.

In hindsight though, it was a great adventure. Everything else was absolutely lovely, couldn't have asked for a more beautiful home, great kitchen, plenty of space for 3 couples and a toddler. We will be back, possibly with chains though.
