About Todd Frank

My wife and I are Native Montanan's, Mary grew up in Philipsburg and her family has been in the area since the late 1800's. We wanted a place that we could use but also a place for friends,family and vacationing folks could stay. We live in Missoula - about 80 miles from Philipsburg but spend most of our free time around the area. My wife's parents still live in town so we have a local contact.

Todd Frank purchased this bungalow in 2014

Why Todd Frank chose Philipsburg

We have owned this property for almost 30 years and decided last year to build a Yurt on the property as an alternative to building a small home. It allows us some flexibility and we think they are amazing and unique structures. It has amazing deck space that overlooks the town and ice rink. We think it is a great location to walk downtown and shop, have a beer at the brewery or just hang out.

What makes this bungalow unique

Most folks have never stayed in a Yurt and we think it is a unique experience that people will really enjoy, being able to watch a lightning storm through the dome or watch the stars is a really fun feature. The Yurt also allowed us to build a very efficient space. It is Only heated fully when occupied so all the plumbing is contained in a small space that is very efficient to heat when the Yurt is not Occupied.

Wonderful place for a family getaway

  • 5 of 5

First and foremost, yes they have a window A/C unit for warmer days. I was a little worried because it wasn't mentioned in the description. The beds were great. The master bedroom had a nice comfy bed. The beds in the loft were good too. I brought a sleeping mask for my granddaughter so she could sleep past sunrise. My husband had loft duty because she couldn't sleep alone and he doesn't mind the early morning sun. One of the days was rainy and we spent half the day in front of the fireplace. The kitchen had everything we needed for cooking a nice dinner. The grounds around the yurt are nice and great for a 'picnic' dinner. It's a 5 minute walk into Philipsburg where there are some fun shops. Overall we had a great time and enjoyed our stay.

Great family time

Great place to spend a couple nights! Skied @ Discovery one day & snowmobiled the next. Large, bright, clean yurt with a sleeping loft for the kids (which they loved). Well stocked kitchen. The bed was so comfortable!

Burg Yurt is the bomb!

  • 5 of 5

Loved living 'in the round' - great space. Fun to get to know Phillipsburg and we had two great days of alpine and nordic skiing at Discovery. Definitely worth repeating.

Philipsburg is a great vacation spot. fishing, hunting, skiing, hiking, you name it is all within just minutes of town. Basing in town is a smart option if some of the group want to fish or ski and some want to do other activities like dig for sapphires, or explore old mining towns, and find second hand treasures
