About Rob and Diane Chandler

We first visited Philipsburg over 14 years ago and knew then that we had to share the experience with others. We now live in Seattle but having both grown up in small towns we fell in love with the charm and friendliness of Philipsburg. We are always amazed by the community of people, their love for their town and their hospitality.

We love what the Flint Creek Valley offers from Sapphire Mining to enjoying a craft beer at the Philipsburg Brewery. Taking a short drive out to Rock Creek for a day of World Class fly fishing is one of our favorite activities.

Rob and Diane Chandler purchased this cottage in 2003

Why Rob and Diane Chandler chose Montana

Whether we head to the Discovery Ski Area in the winter or spend hours fishing Rock Creek, Georgetown lake or small streams, boating, swimming and exploring in the summer we love it all, our sons would say 'especially the candy store'. There is so much to see and do in the area within walking distance. P-Burg is a great home base for farther travel as well. We are just three hours to Yellowstone to the south and two and a half hours north to Glacier Park with lots of Ghost Towns in between.

What makes this cottage unique

Our home sits on a fenced corner lot and is walking distance to downtown shops. Enjoy the back patio for breakfast lunch and dinner. A great setting to enjoy a morning cup of coffee or an evening dinner. You can hear Douglas Creek in the distance as it trickles by the Cottage. The house has an open floor plan and great for family gatherings.

Great house in a perfect location

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I, two children, and parents (6 total) stayed in Philipsburg for about a week for the 150th celebration of Flint Creek Valley Days. The house was perfect for us. The kitchen was well stocked, the living room was spacious and comfy, and the bedrooms were inviting.

The location was ideal. It's a short walk to town, but far enough away to avoid the noise. There is plenty of parking nearby. Our kids played on the two nearby playgrounds (walked there and back on their own). The Flink Creek Valley 5K running route also went by the house twice, so that was an added bonus! We were somewhat disappointed by a lack of washer/dryer, but the 24/7 laundromat is really close by, and they have delicious pizza besides!

There are several games in the living room available to play. Lots of interesting Montana/ranching artwork lined the walls and created a great atmosphere. The bathroom was plenty big, the shower had great water pressure (and had a real door, not a flimsy shower curtain!), and all rooms have big mirrors. Two rooms with double beds were nice and spacious. The third bedroom had a queen bed. Someone could have slept on the couch or put an air mattress on the floor. There were plenty of blankets and pillows, extra towels, extra linens, and lots of kitchen dish towels.

The owner, Rob, was incredibly great to deal with. He was flexible when we changed our plans and offered a late checkout since no one was checking in the day of our exit. His kind caretaker lives nearby and he tended to the lawn (which looked fabulous) - watered and mowed.

We were visiting from California, but my parents grew up in P'burg. So we didn't need a lot of suggestions on what to do. However, there's a binder full of information in the cottage with places to go and things to do.

We'd stay here again in a heartbeat. We liked everything about it!

Wounded Veteran retreat.

  • 5 of 5

A very good experience at the Douglas Creek Cottage. Our organization works with wounded vets and needed lodging at the last moment. The owner of this rental was very helpful and accommodating. I would recommend this cottage to anyone visiting Philipsburg and looking for simplicity, cleanliness, and a great location. I look forward to using them in the future. ~DWR, Founder

Attractive well kept older home

  • 5 of 5

We enjoyed our stay at this house. It was well taken care of and nicely furnished. Well stocked usable kitchen. The beds were very comfortable, fairly new mattresses. Quiet area behind the school. Contact (by phone)with the owner is possible if something goes wrong and he has a caretaker in the area. Thanks for making it available, we will be back.

We loved our stay, and would stay there again with no hesitation. It was cozy and as advertised.

  • 4 of 5

Three adults and three children spent a great weekend at the Douglas Creek Cottage. It was easy to find and get to, a short walk to Pburg's main drag, and fit our needs well. It was warm on winter nights, and well stocked, especially the linens. The decor had some cool old cowboy things and classic mountain touches. The only reason it is a 4 and not 5 star accommodation is that a the hardwood floor is a bit splintery and a few furnishings are in need of repair. These things would certainly not prevent me from staying there again, just a touch below a 5 star level, of which there a few around. I'd go 4.5 if I could.
