About Rita James

We are Mike & Rita. We live at the gateway to the San Juan Islands in the seaside community of Anacortes north of Seattle - but we both grew up in the Rocky Mountains. We are busy professionals with an extended family nearby - we love travel, books, art, good food and wine and experiencing the world around us.

Rita James purchased this house in 1998

Why Rita James chose Montana

Our fist visit to Philipsburg was like stepping back in time. We fell in love with the mountain setting, the amazing friendliness of the folks in town and all of the activities available around this community. It didn't take us long to decide that this is a place where we could see ourselves spending more time as we moved toward and into retirement. We found this little comfortable house filled with original charm, that was the perfect size for our needs. Just recently we decided since we have this great place that we are not yet able to utilize all that often, maybe we should share it with others who are looking for a similar experience. We decided to call our house James Croft to reflect our Scottish love and heritage.

What makes this house unique

Coming from the soggy northwest, we always rave about the light in our house. The glassed-in front porch and paned windows get the first rays of morning sun - add in a good cup of coffee and it's a perfect start to a day. The enclosed back porch similarly captures the evening light & sunset. We love the authentic Craftsman touches throughout the house - the glass french doors into the main bedroom - the built in closets and bookshevles - the wood trim throughout the house. While it's not fancy, we've done our best to make James Croft cozy and comfortable!

Quaint, cozy and close to town

  • 5 of 5

We will definitely stay here again. Rita was very welcoming and easy to contact. The home has been updated, making it feel fresh and clean but preserving the history of the place. French doors to the master bedroom really opens up the place and the claw foot bathtub is classic.

A good deal! Didn't disappoint. Perfect home base for a P-Burg / Discovery weekend

  • 4 of 5

We were two couples and a dog staying for two nights. The house was a great size, and everything was clean and in working order. The house is definitely old, but we had no issues with it and it stayed plenty warm for our January visit. The DVD collection is small but covers a wide range of genres, and there was a great book selection in the middle bedroom. The one of the beds is actually a futon, but it was plenty comfy (firm). No wifi, but no problem. The only things I'd suggest as additions is a loveseat in the living room so there's more options for comfortable seating, and maybe a few more board games on the shelves. Thanks for the nice place to stay!

Perfect for us

  • 5 of 5

We had a nice weekend at this cute, clean cottage with our family of 4. It is accurately described as "charming". The house was big enough for us to be comfortable, large kitchen and all the amenities we needed. We enjoy skiing at Discovery Basin and this was a convenient location for us. We had some nice meals out in Philipsburg and were very cozy and comfortable in this home with subzero temperatures outside! The owners were very helpful.

It's OK

  • 3 of 5

Cute old house with farmhouse charm. Comfortable for the most part. If you like staying in old homes with old features, you will like this house. We had toilet issues during our 2-night stay (trouble flushing it). I also didn't realize it didn't have wifi until right before arrival (my fault for not checking before we booked). Just assumed since we're avid AirBNB'ers and we have always had wifi in our vacation homes. Loved the cable TV. For the money, would have expected wifi. Great service from Rita. She sent over directions and her suggestions for things to do before arrival. Overall it was just OK.

Owner's Response: After the call from the renter about the toilet issue, it has been fixed. Even though we like the idea of being unplugged on vacation, we want to make things comfortable for our guests - so are looking into adding wifi to the house.

We had a great time. The house was comfortable, well outfitted, great location.

  • 4 of 5

P-Burg is a great town. Love the history and the easy vibe. Our two day stay was full of town walks, beer breaks at the local hang out, checking the Griz game and general relaxing at the house. We're enjoyed and appreciated the old house with its character and charm. The house was clean and comfortable, easy to cook in and great for playing cards or watching the game. It would be nice if the second bedroom had a regular mattress instead of a futon. Wasn't uncomfortable, just seems like for the $$ there should be two real beds. We'd recommend it to friends and certainly consider doing it again ourselves! Thanks!

Cute little house close by everything in PBurg!

  • 4 of 5

We had a great stay in PBurg! The house was clean and comfortable, with plenty of parking for our trailer and ATV. The neighborhood was quiet and the views were beautiful. Would definitely stay again.

Philipsburg is an idyllic town tucked up against the Flint Mountain Range abounding in outdoor activities and friendly western hospitality. Lining a historic downtown Main Street you’ll find a brew pub, incredible Sweet Shop candy store (not to be missed), Saphire Gallery with locally mined stones, restaurants, unique gift shops, a fly fishing store, antiques and one of the best thrift stores around. Within 15 minutes is the Discovery Ski Resort with a range of skiing options, Georgetown Lake Recreation Area and Granite (ghost mining town). Just outside of town you can enjoy world class fly fishing, hike, mountain bike or picnic within sight of the continental. A visit will not be complete without spotting moose, elk, mountain goats or deer. There's even a Jack Nicolas designed golf course (with black sand) only a half hour away in Anaconda.
