Take advantage of this spacious house with gabled windows facing Georgetown Lake and Discovery Ski Basin!
Located on one of the premier fishing lakes in the State, both summer and winter ice fishing produce large trout and Kokanee salmon species. Denton's Point Marina is 100 yards walk with public access. Bring your own boat or rent one nearby.
We are less than 15 minutes from Discovery Basin Ski slopes and you can drive to the mountain, get lift tickets, and be on the ski lift within 30 minutes of leaving the house. This mountain is ideal for families and has an amazing skill selection for all skier types (including 16 double black diamond runs). This is the best kept secret in the skiing world and one of the most affordable mountains in the country.
This area also boasts one of the best snowmobiling areas in the State, with hundreds of miles of maintained trails.
Nearby, Echo Lake and Mount Haggin are both cross-country ski destinations with additional groomed trail systems.
The Pintlar wilderness surrounds us, with endless hunting, fishing, hiking, and camping opportunities as well as back-country skiing in the winter.
Rock creek, one of Montana's premier blue ribbon fly fishing rivers, is just 40 minutes away, by way of Philipsburg. The Big Hole and Beaverhead rivers are also only 50 minutes away, heading towards Dillon.
Fairmont Hot Springs is another popular destination 30 miles away, through Anaconda. What could be better after a long day of skiing, boating, or other outdoor activity?!
There are 2 restaurant/bars at the lake. The 7 Gables, located at the turn to Discovery Basin and St. Timothy's chapel, and the Brown Derby, located to the right on Hwy 1 towards Anaconda. Both are only 3-4 miles from the house.
The town of Philipsburg is 15 miles away and offers a look at a cute, unique, and historic Montana town. There you can find gem shoppes and Montana gift shopping, as well as an award winning BBQ restaurant (Up in Smoke), the Philipsburg Brewery, and a wonderful candy shoppe. In winter, the town provides a free outside ice skating rink and skates for anyone to use.
Anaconda, in the other direction, is also only 15 miles away. There you find typical grocery stores, restaurants, nightlife, and services. In addition, Anaconda is home to Old Works, a Jack Nicklaus designed signature golf course and the Anaconda Country Club.
