Our cozy house is right in Philipsburg, but in a quiet spot looking over town and the mountains. It is a special house, with wood floors, lots of light, and very pretty furnishings. One bedroom has a queen bed, another a double bed, and the third bedroom has a double & single bed. There are 2 bathrooms, one with a nice tiled shower and one with a big claw foot tub. There is also a beautiful sauna, a pool table, DVD player, foosball, and a cozy gas fireplace in the living room. The kitchen is fully furnished and has a bright breakfast nook. There is a nice-sized deck with a grill looking out over town, the mountains and the nearby Discovery Ski Area. Discovery is an excellent ski area for families, but also has very advanced runs. This house is great for families, couples, and single people looking for a peaceful and fun getaway. Guests have really loved staying here, and it makes us happy to offer our home to you. Please note, the house does not have wi-fi, though it does have very good cell service.

About Blake Bucher
We, Blake and Jennie, are the owners. Our home base is Missoula, not too far away. Blake built the Philipsburg house, over five years, with some help from builder friends and Jennie and our two daughters. We are originally from Minnesota, but have lived in Montana for over thirty years. We have also been lucky to have some years teaching in Asia and Europe. We are happy to share our house, and hope you enjoy it!
Blake Bucher purchased this House in 2005
Why Blake Bucher chose Philipsburg
Philipsburg is a great little town and we felt so fortunate in 2005 when we were able to buy this lot and the pink trailer that came with it! We worked bit by bit over the next five years to build this house, and we are really proud of how it turned out. It is a perfect location, in town but in a quiet spot overlooking everything, and very close to skiing, fishing, ice skating, great mountain biking, music festivals, theater in town, you name it.

Great property! Very nice weekend.
Impressive retro architecture. Well built. Comfortable. Good people to work with. Couldn't ask for more!
The VRBO was really wonderful! The house has been redone beautifully and is cozy and comfortable. We especially enjoyed the pool table, foosball table, and sauna. These were extra perks that came with the house! There was also a great selection of books, movies and games. We hated to see the weekend come to a close and hope we can come again. Thanks for sharing your house with us!
Cozy and welcoming!
We loved our stay! From the moment we walked in the door - each of us said "aaaah".... great attention to detail - great spaces for gathering and for stepping away for a little solitude. Wonderful.
Phillipsburg vacation home
This was a great spot for a small reunion group of five. House was very clean, had great views of the mountains and was very well appointed with plenty of dishes, cookware, towels, etc. It was an easy walk to main street and the opera house. Manager checked in via text upon arrival to make sure everything was in order. Only suggestion would be to have a couple of fans available during warm weather. Although the air exchanger helped cool, it was unseasonably warm during our stay. Ours was a great experience!
Thank you for your nice review! Too bad the weather was so hot when you were there; normally the house does stay very cool.
Our favorite VRBO yet!
Excellent location, peaceful & CLEAN! Incredibly well designed, thoughtful art and details galore yet so comfortable and inviting! Great books! Great deck! Great view! The owner AND manager were each accessible if needed and quickly answered our note left on the counter begging for paint color names. We loved it for our girls weekend and we will absolutely be back! If you are going to Phillipsburg this is the one.
Thanks for the kind words Lisa, you guys were great renters. Jennie & Blake
The house suited our needs perfectly and was a great place to spend a rainy day in Philipsburg.
Philipsburg, Montana is a beautiful old mining town and our house is right above town in the heart of things. You are near skiing in the winter, and fishing and hiking in the summer! The incredible Discovery Ski Area is only 20 minutes away, and the Anaconda-Pintler Mountains and Georgetown Lake are close by. Our house has everything you need to enjoy the area. There is so much to do and see in this part of Montana! In the town of Philipsburg itself, you can stroll right from the house down to town to enjoy restaurants, the famous candy shop, Philipsburg Brewery, antique stores, galleries, ice skating in the winter and more!
