Photos and Description of this 2 bedroom holiday home in Anaconda - Lakeside Cabin

Just built, this custom lakeside cabin has it all, 2 bed, 2 bath with a loft.

Georgetown Lake is truly one of the unspoiled gems of the Rocky Mountains with four season access and four season excitement. Our cabin offers convenient lake access, outstanding mountain views and world class recreational opportunities for the outdoor enthusiast. Community access to miles of timbered Forest Service property on the western edge of the site leading into the Pintler Range. Our cabin is also adjacent to the Lakeside at Georgetown Marina which offers an opportunity for watercraft launching, your own secured boat slip, picnicing, swimming, walking trails and a variety of other activities.

Our cabin was just finished and we have outfitted it with beautiful custom furniture. This is a two level home with an open floor plan. There is a master bedroom on the main floor with a queen size bed. Upstairs is another bedroom with two full size beds. There is also a loft area with a full size futon. The cabin can sleep a total of 8 people. There is a covered deck to enjoy the views of Georgetown lake and watch the bald eagles that nest in the trees next to the cabin. You can see how they show the local fishermen how it is really done.

Our cabin has all the comforts of home including two tv's with dvd players, an assortment of movies, books and games, outdoor bbq, fully equipped kitchen and a washer/dryer.

The outdoor enthusiast has endless opportunities in this area. Georgetown Lake offers unmatched scenery, great fishing, sailing, boating, waterskiing and a popular new sport of kite boarding. During the summer months the National Wilderness Area and public lands provides hundreds of miles of trails for backpackers, horseback riders, mountain bikers and ATV riders. These same areas turn into a backcountry skier and a snowmobile rider’s dream in the winter. Local groups groom and maintain miles of trails for snowmobile riders and cross country skiers. The Georgetown Lake area receives some of the finest snow in Montana. Capitalizing on this is Discovery Ski Area.

Stepping out into the wilderness surrounding Georgetown Lake, you will be in awe of this unspoiled area of the Rocky Mountains. The wildlife is abundant, ranging from big game animals like bear, mountain lion, elk, moose, mountain sheep and white tail deer to smaller animals like badger, fox, coyote, snowshoe hare, beaver, raccoon and porcupine. Birds are also plentiful in this area including many species of ducks, geese, herons, grebes, osprey, golden eagles and bald eagles. It is not uncommon to come into contact with most of the animals listed above, so make sure to know the rules of the wilderness and have a camera handy.

To quote a popular line from A River Runs Through It, “In Montana there’s three things we’re never late for: church, work and fishing.” Trout fishing is probably the biggest draw in and around Georgetown Lake. There are over 500 miles of streams and over 50 lakes in Granite County alone, providing some of the best fishing in the nation. Surrounded by so many Blue Ribbon Rivers and creeks, some of these areas never see an angler all season. Both spin and fly-fishing are possible all year long. The rivers and lakes are full of Rainbow Trout, Westslope Cutthroat Trout, Brown Trout, Brook Trout, Bull Trout, Mountain Whitefish and Kokanee Salmon. Whether you want to step out of the front door of your cabin and fish one of Montana’s finest still water fly-fishing destinations, backpack into a remote mountain lake or float some of the surrounding rivers you will feel like you are living the life of Norman Maclean. There are also local guide services and fishing classes to get you started. After a few seasons you will know when the hatches occur and the best flies to use. To get you started you may want to try an elk hair caddis, royal wulf, san juan worm or a woolly bugger in the summer months.

No matter what you are looking for; a quiet place to unwind, endless outdoor recreation, social activities or family adventures you can find it all at Georgetown Lake. Spending time at Georgetown Lake will allow you to experience the rugged elegance of real Montana living. It doesn’t matter when you visit this area, there is always something to do. Within 20 minutes of Georgetown Lake are two extremely lively and unique towns; Anaconda and Philipsburg.

Both towns came into existence during the 1800’s during the mining heydays. Anaconda was founded in 1883 and is now part of the nation’s largest National Historic Landmark District. Anaconda is also home to a Jack Nicklaus signature golf course. Old Works Golf Course incorporates many historic mining relics of the past for a very unique golfing experience. Just outside of Anaconda is the full service resort of Fairmont Hot Springs. Long before the resort was constructed, Native American tribes such as the Flathead, Nez Perce and Shoshone frequented this area and referred to the hot pools as “medicine waters.”

Founded in 1866, the unique and now famous town of Philipsburg is also part of the National Historic Landmark District. All summer long events are planned in and around this lively little town. Philipsburg is arguably one of the best preserved towns from the past. Philipsburg is a perfectly restored version of the nearby ghost towns. The town has the oldest operating jail, school and opera house in the state. The downtown is filled with structures whose design and materials have been restored to represent the exact look and feel of the boom towns of the past.

Whether you are looking for a unique shopping experience, dining, learning the history of the area at the Granite County Museum, nightlife at an authentic Montana saloon or a live theater, you can find it in Philipsburg. The historic Opera House was established in 1891. It is the oldest operating theater in the state of Montana and has recently been restored to its original splendor. All summer long, professional actors perform live theater shows, including original vaudeville works that are much like the shows from a century ago.

The area around Philipsburg is famous for the mining and numerous ghost towns that attract visitors from around the world. Montana sapphires, gold and silver can still be found in the area. Gem Peak, just outside Philipsburg became one of the largest gem quality sapphire discoveries in the United States. Organized mining is offered at Gem Mountain and Philipsburg for a great family experience. Gem enthusiasts regularly find sapphires exceeding two carats in size. Getting to some of the ghost towns in the area is an experience on its own. This is a four wheeler paradise as mining roads traverse the mountain sides passing historic ghost towns and mining claims.

About Jay

Having been born and raised in Montana, I have seen a lot of growth and change in the recreational areas of Western Montana. I have always been particularly fond of the Georgetown Lake area, primarily because of the times that I have spent there fishing and camping. I think that same feeling is what prompted our former Governor, Brian Schweitzer, to move to Georgetown Lake. He is quoted as saying, “We went to Georgetown and we thought, this is kind of what we used to have. It reminded us of what Whitefish was 20 years ago.”

Our cabin is in the only subdivision on the lake that provides paved neighborhood roads and four season access so you can enjoy the lake, mountains and ski resort all year long. Our cabin also provides direct marina and trail access and allows you to enjoy a bonfire with your friends and neighbors. These are only a few of the many amenities that will entice you to call return to this location year after year.

If you happen to be in the area, or are planning on visiting Montana this year please let us know. I would love to meet with you and show you a piece of paradise in the last best place.

Best Regards

Jay purchased this house in 2015

Excellent Fishing Getaway

Caught nice fish every day - watched bald eagles, moose, and beautiful rainbows. Well-maintained, comfortable cabin with fantastic lake view and easy dock access to the water. Would recommend this place any day - great fishing!

Perfect Vacation Spot! Even better than the pictures!!!

  • 5 of 5

I knew I'd reserved beautiful place, but my jaw dropped when I walked in the door. Every aspect of this home is an amazing balance of beauty and comfort. The dark woodwork detailing, the counters, and even the sinks are gorgeous! The two rocking chairs in the living room are super comfy. Then, to top it off, two spots on the couch recline!! The toughest thing was to figure out which comfy spot to sit in to watch the trout jump & sun rise over the glass-smooth lake. And the wild life is amazing! We saw geese and their goslings waddle past and even bald eagles!! In the evening we saw three juvenile deer (two with fuzzy small antlers, one without) and an adorable mini-fox bound through the grass behind the house. The kicker was the moose and her baby crossing the main lake road one evening as we drove back to the lake property.

The whole house is perfect for relaxing and together-ness. It was so nice to enjoy lounging/chatting in the living room while the kids played monopoly in the loft. There was enough space to relax, but still to be able to feel like the whole family was together since you could hear the fun laughter of the kids in the loft. And then, since the kitchen opens to the dining/living room, no one was left out when it was time to cook dinner. It was so nice to have family sitting at the counter to chat while preparing meals.

And then there was the jet-skiing! The lake is so huge that you can go to choppier spots for an adventurous ride, or to the glass-smooth parts for a relaxing sight-seeing tour. The marina spot, little beach, and picnic area were just icing on the cake! I couldn't have dreamed up a better place!!

Great stay!

  • 5 of 5

Last summer, my sister, brother and I stayed at this area, nearly new house just across from Georgetown Lake.

The space absolutely met our needs, we had other family members staying at nearby VRBOs, there was space for hosting large groups at meal time.

We hadn't stayed on this side of the lake before, so it was delightful to watch the sunsets and activity close to water!

Jay, our host, was very accommodating and made sure everything was going well for our stay.

I can't remember why I didn't write a review last summer, I guess reality returned too quickly! It's not a reflection of how much we enjoyed staying at Cloud 9.

Great base camp for long weekend of skiing

  • 5 of 5

We found the perfect place to stay for President's weekend to ski 3 straight days.

This isn't a cabin, its a new house that is only minutes from Discovery Ski Area. Nicely designed and the perfect base camp for my entire family to eat, sleep and rest up for the next day's skiing.

Views are great and the amenities were better than expected!

I hope to use this great place on a yearly basis!

Great House, Great location

  • 5 of 5

What a wonderful place for family time. The house still smells brand new! We had a great time playing swimming and fishing in the lake just footsteps away from the rental house. The Marina was perfect for our boat, and fishing was outstanding. The house was well kept, with all the amenities we needed for our stay. Also, the owner was very responsive and easy to work with.
