Overview

About the property

5 Bedrooms, 3.5 Bathrooms, No more than 14 guests may stay overnight.

Spacious lake view log home on 5 acres with private boat dock. Maximum 2 boats allowed at this dock (use your own boats or rent some close by). Awe inspiring, 280 degree view of Georgetown Lake, Continental Divide Mountain Range and the surrounding forests. Ideal for peace and quiet. Neighboring homes all around, but far enough away to allow privacy. Walk 100 yards to the lake for summer or winter sports activities. Discovery Ski hill is a 15 minute drive from this home. It's the best kept skiing secret in Montana and is often praised as the best skiing, most reasonable prices. Use your own snowmobiles to ride over 120 miles of nearby groomed mountain trails directly out the front door. Old Works golf course is 1/2 hour drive to Anaconda. It is a Jack Nicklaus signature course, and a challenge to the best golfers. The lake offers boating, swimming, outstanding fishing both summer and winter. Para-skiing tournaments are held each February. Ice fishing is popular here. Two restaurants close by serve burgers, sandwiches, steaks and breakfast. The small community of Philipsburg is 20 minutes to the west and has shops, restaurants and entertainment. This is the most beautiful home on the lake with by far the best view. Come and enjoy! Please be aware that this is a log house in the woods in the country. There will be bugs occasionally. If you don't like bugs and the outdoors, this house is not for you. This is a smoke free home. Smoking is permitted outside the house. Please dispose of cigarette butts properly as fire danger is always high in western forests. Check in is at 5:00 PM and check out is at 10:00 AM. No tents or campers are allowed on the property. Day events (weddings, family reunions, etc) are limited to 40 people and there will be an extra charge of $500 per event. If the tenant's guest list exceeds 30 people, the tenant is required to rent a portable toilet to accommodate guests during the event. Tenant may do this by requesting a number from the property manager. The tenant is liable for any damage to or loss of property caused by the tenant or the tenant's guests. Therefore purchase of damage protection is recommended. There is a fee per pet per day, added at the time of reservation.

About Cora Wyant

We will give you information about the owners, but you will mostly be dealing with the on-site manager, Cora Wyant, who lives near the property. Cora is a friendly, capable manager and cleaner and will do what she can to make your stay the best vacation you've ever had.

I, Bob Morris, grew up in Anaconda and after college I spent my career in Mexico and in Southern California working in the aerospace & electronic industries. I returned to the community of my birth after retirement. Home again! My wife, Joan grew up outside Chicago and has lived in Montana for the past 40 years. She was Director of the Western Montana Metal Health Center. We are currently retired and reside in Anaconda, although we love to travel and stay in VRBO homes all over the world!

Cora Wyant purchased this lodge in 1993

Why Cora Wyant chose Montana

We built this house after selling our electronics business in San Diego. We first owned a smaller house nearby but I always envisioned spending my final years on a mountaintop to see the sun come up in the morning and go down in the evening to fish, ski, hike and snowmobile right out my door. It's a dream come true.

What makes this lodge unique

We built this house in 1993 and we never get tired of the magnificent view over the lake. To see the wonderful mountains, forests and animals and experience the beauty and craftsmanship of a log house is beyond description. if I had it to do over again I would not change a thing, neither the location or the house itself, there is nothing to compare it with. Western Montana is in a class all of its own and luckily this part of it is still relatively undiscovered. We are so pleased to be able to share it with you.

very nice home

  • 5 of 5

The home was clean. Nicely decorated (cabin style). The wild life around the area was amazing. We had moose siting every day! One evening a bald Eagle was on the tree boughs. The only draw back is that the dock is a bit of a distance from the home so fairly unusable.

Amazing Place

  • 5 of 5

We had our Family Reunion here this summer and it couldn't have been more perfect;

The wrap around deck, the fire pit, the huge living room and kitchen were all

ideal for our get together. We had our coffee out on the deck every morning with the beautiful view of the Lake and the Pintler Mountains, and spent our days on the Lake, which is just a quick walk down the hill. Everyone in our family said it was the best place we had ever booked.

We hope to be back soon!

Great views but house in need of repairs

  • 2 of 5

Beautiful views of the lake and nice large kitchen for cooking and sharing meals. Unfortunately, the upstairs toilet overflowed upon use and we had a downpour into the entry, main floor bath and dining room. The friendly maintenance man came out and may have fixed the problem. However, because it was so severe we were afraid to use it. Similar situation happened the following day from the main floor toilet. We were told this was not our fault and that the septic system probably needs to be flushed. It appeared from plywood placed in the entry ceiling this had happened before. The property is for sale and we wondered if the owners don't want to fix anything before it sells. Also, the book in which guests can leave comments had many pages torn out. Finally, the wifi does not work there. Too bad the owners and management don't want to resolve the issues this property clearly has. It's a disappointment to spend a vacation in such a property and knowing the next guest may have to deal with the same issues.

Fabulous Home

  • 5 of 5

A truly beautiful home with stunning lake and mountain views. Everything we needed was there and more. The deck is huge and we enjoyed just sitting there watching the Bald Eagles fly around with the lake and Pintlar mountain range in the background. We hope to stay here again soon!
