About Larry Abbott

Fly fishing is my religion. Rock Creek is my church.

Larry Abbott purchased this cabin in 2014

Why Larry Abbott chose Philipsburg

I have found no place on earth more peaceful or beautiful than Upper Rock Creek, and this cabin is in one of the very best stretches of the valley. The environment here is totally unspoiled. Grizzly, wolves, mountain lions, moose, elk, deer, eagles, big horn sheep, and 2,000 trout per mile make their homes here. It is common to catch 30 fish on dry flies in a day, and not encounter another angler. Rock Creek's reputation as " arguably the finest trout stream in Montana" is well deserved. Located in hunting district 216, with abundant hunting opportunities in sight of the property.

What makes this cabin unique

Upon request, guests are provided with a detailed description of the very best "secret spots" on the creek, little known public access points and easements, and specific fly and technique advice, to make your trip a big success.

Real Western Montana

  • 5 of 5

The Rock Creek Cabin is in great shape and the kitchen is well stocked with nice quality pots and pans and all of the tools that you could need. The furnishings are comfortable and in good condition. The large table can easily seat eight people so the entire family or group can sit down together. It's just a hop skip and a jump from one of the premier fly fishing rivers (don't let the name Rock Creek fool you, it's the real deal) in Montana. It was late December and I was able to get to the river and get fish. There was a trailhead within easy walking distance for hikers and cross country skiers. The upper Rock Creek area is the real Western Montana. Once you turn off from the town of Philipsburg, which is worth at least an afternoon, you will see nothing but large ranches that still run cattle and a few cabins along the way. The ranches assure open spaces and great views. We saw three Moose, and a bunch of whitetail deer in the time that we were out running around. I have lived in Montana my entire life and it was refreshing to see Montana the way I remember it as a kid.

In the wintertime it's a great place to get away as there is very little traffic on the road.

Family Get-away

  • 5 of 5

Travelled to this cabin in the beautiful Rock Creek area to spend a few days with the family. The cabin is located just minutes from the water and the folks at the Clark Ranch were super about giving us access to the stream to fish and to take in the views. The cabin was clean and well maintained with everything we needed and super comfortable. The BBQ was well used and could use some love but the kitchen was stocked with ample cookware and a very nice gas range to cook meals. Sitting on the deck enjoying coffee each morning was pure bliss. The sound of the water , sight of rock cliffs, and the deer walking through the fields encouraged me to get out of bed early each morning.

The cabin is close to P-burg if you want to go spend time at a few neat shops, the brewery, (my favorite) or eat (Bricks Pub). If you rent this cabin be sure to take the drive down Rock Creek Road towards Clinton. What an amazing ride! We saw tons of big game animals, the highlight being the herd of bighorn sheep.

If you are looking at renting this property I would encourage you to do it! You won't be disappointed! We are already looking for an excuse to get back!

Great location and beautiful accommodations.

  • 5 of 5

This cabin is wonderful and is an absolutely beautiful location. There was plenty of room for 4 kids and 4 adults (and would have easily accommodated more). We stayed here because all of the VRBOs in Philipsburg were booked and we wanted to ski at Discovery. I was pleasantly surprised that it was pretty close to Disco--an easy drive of less than 45 minutes. It felt like we were away from it all. We will definitely stay here again for a skiing weekend. This place would be awesome anytime of year to fish, ski or hike. Had a very cabiny feel. Loved it!

Comfortable homey cabin

  • 4 of 5

This is a comfy totally functional cabin in a very nice location. The only minor issue was the old gas BBQ......the burners need replacement. It was very quiet and peaceful and the cabin had all the nice utensils and housekeeping stuff you could ask for. The big wild fires in southwest Mont. didn't t affect this area of Rock Creek thank goodness and thank you firefighters.

The cabin and location were both excellent!

  • 5 of 5

The scenery, wildlife viewing and fishing were great! The cabin was very clean and could easily accommodate a large group. The view from the living room was amazing. We also enjoyed the short trip to the Phillipsburg Brewery for some Otter Water. If you are looking for a great fly fishing adventure this is the place for you. We caught all five species of trout on the Rock and enjoyed short trips to fish Georgetown Lake and Fuse Lake. We hope to be back soon.

Our stay was amazing! The cabin slept 9 men comfortably and had all the amenities we needed, BBQ has been around the block a few times but that didn't slow us down one bit. The location was top notch and the river was beautiful...we fished, ate and maybe shared a beer or two until we felt like we'd been hit by a moose. Thanks for the memories!
