About Rob and Diane Chandler

We first visited Philipsburg over 12 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.

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.

A fun place to stay

  • 5 of 5

Cute and cozy home. Perfect for the two of us....and plenty of room for another couple also. Rob was great from start to finish. Very hands on and readily available for your questions. It got cold and he immediately sent someone over to start up the heaters...beginning of winter came a bit early in P burg. Well equipped kitchen....comfy beds. We will be back! PS.. Very nice and clean...lots of local information on hand for anyone who is new to the area.

Home away from home!!!

  • 5 of 5

We enjoyed our stay at The Douglas Creek Cottage! We have been lodging and fishing on nearby Rock Creek for years and decided to switch things up and stay in Philipsburg! We loved the roomy layout and we sat in the side yard each night to enjoy sunsets. Thanks for a great stay!!!!

Perfect!

  • 5 of 5

We had absolutely everything we needed for a weekend stay at this wonderful rental! The house was clean and comfortable with beautiful views and a very nice private outside patio with a grill and seating. It is also easy walking distance to restaurants and shops downtown. This will be a place to return to! (We were unable to connect to the Internet but it wasn't a problem for us.) Thanks for sharing this special place!
