About the property

3 Bedrooms, 2 Baths House, Beautifully Furnished With Everything You Need!

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 clawfoot tub. There is also a beautiful sauna, a pool table, dvd player, and a cozy gas fireplace in the living room. The kitchen is fully furnished and has a cozy 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.

About Blake Bucher

We, Blake and Jennie, are the owners. Our home base is Missoula, not too far away, but we are currently teaching in Copenhagen, Denmark. In our absence, we decided to share our cabin, as we thought it would be nice for others to get to be here too. We so hope you enjoy it! Blake built the place, over five years, with some help from builder friends and Jennie and our two daughters. We are originally from Minnesota, but definitely count Montana as home. The last few years we have been lucky to have some experiences teaching and living in Asia and Europe!

Blake Bucher purchased this house in 2005

Why Blake Bucher chose Montana

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.

Nice place in town with a great owner

  • 5 of 5

Blake went out of his way to make sure we had a great experience. I would definitely recommend staying here, and I probably will again. I've stayed at 6 vrbo's in the Pberg/Georgetown area over the last few years and this one is definitely at the top of the list. For a clean, classy entire-home rental within walking distance from downtown that can accommodate 4 people, you can't beat it.

Lovely retreat!

  • 5 of 5

This house is a gem. The owners truly built it with love, and it comes through with every small detail, from the large claw-foot tub in the upstairs bathroom (great after a day skiing at Discovery) to the lovely prints on the walls and fantastic library. The property is clean and comfortable. We love the central P-burg location--walkability to the ice rink and brewery.

We had a terrific family ski weekend. The house was great it has a nice kitchen so we didn't have to spend money eating out. Awesome master suite with a deck to enjoy the mountain views. We will definitely be back next winter for another family ski weekend!!
