Hidden Gem

Discover one of America's "Prettiest Painted Places"

Wander the main street in historic Philipsburg, which was named “Best Town to Lose Yourself in the Past” by Men’s Journal and one of “America’s Best Secret Ski Towns” by National Geographic Travel. This beautifully restored former mining town is filled with artisan shops, including The Sweet Palace Victorian candy shop, The Philipsburg Creamery, Sāj Floral Studio, vintage stores and The Sapphire Gallery, displaying gems mined on Rock Creek and around the world. Head a few doors down to the Philipsburg Brewing Company, a local hot spot. Sip their award-winning beers as you do a tasting in town, then enjoy them as part of our beverage program when you arrive back on The Ranch.
