Tucked away near the base of Discovery Ski Area’s Rumsey Mountain, this 42± acre, unimproved parcel provides the perfect balance of waterfront ambiance, classic Montana flora and unparalleled privacy. Nearly 1,800 feet of Fred Burr Creek traverses the property with varied topography providing multiple homesites to choose from. There is power to the lot, which is accessed by a well-maintained and private dead-end road.
Philipsburg, roughly 10 minutes to the north, anchors this rural community by providing basic services, boutique storefronts, as well as lodging and dining options. Unlike many “discovered” destinations, this vibrant town of around 900 has retained its historic western flair and local flavor.
For outdoor adventurers, the area provides a host of activities. Skiers and snowboarders will marvel at Discovery’s 2,200 skiable acres, 215 inches of annual snowfall, and 2,388-foot vertical drop. For summer fun, Disco Bike Park is located five minutes away at the bottom of Discovery’s back side. The park offers 1,000-foot lift-served vertical terrain offering a mix of flow and technical style trails. For the sporting set, the region provides ample big game hunting and fishing opportunities, including Georgetown Lake and the famous Blue Ribbon fishery, Rock Creek.
Philipsburg is an easy hour-and-15-minute drive from Missoula International Airport offering daily flights from several hubs around the nation. Missoula, Montana’s second-largest city, is a full-service community of roughly 75,000 residents, home of the University of Montana, two regional medical facilities, a burgeoning tech industry, and healthy art scene.
