ROMANTIC SOMERS BAY BOATHOUSE

Somers House Boat Rental Photos and Description

Boathouse, 1Bedroom + Convertible bed(s), 1 Bath (Sleeps 2-4)

This unique waterfront property is he last surviving boathouse with living quarters above it. From the road you will walk down a wooded path to a private incline tram system that will carry you a hundred feet down to a world of lake shore living. When you get to the covered open-air deck, it is complete with a Weber gas BBQ, patio heater, table, chairs and a swing for two. Stepping through the sliding glass door you will see that the living level is decorated with fishing motif. In the corner is a wood stove which can be enjoyed from the overstuffed sofa-bed. The kitchen is well-furnished with cooking utensils and all appliances except for a dishwasher. There is an adorable bath with shower only. Up the winder staircase is a loft bedroom with queen bed and step-in closet plus a dormer niche with a bench. The dock and lake level of the property is shared with the property owners. You have your own boat slip and have full access to the dock, beaches, swim area, swim ladders, & canoe.

The boathouse level is totally private. The lower level with the dock and lake area of the property is shared with the property owners and their guests occasionally. You have your own boat slip and have full access to the dock, beaches, swim area and swim ladders. There is plenty of wood provided for having a bonfire in the fire pit. The lakefront also has a romantic footbridge, patio area with picnic table and tether ball. You are welcome to use the canoe, paddle boat and kayaks which are easily launched from the beach area.

Somers Bay Boathouse is conveniently located: 12 miles west of Bigfork which has live theater and dining; an hour from Glacier Park; 10 miles from historic downtown Kalispel; 5 miles from Lakeside which has a grocery store and dining; great restaurants are within 5 minutes driving toward downtown Somers. The street above the boathouse is part of a biking/walking path which takes you to historic Somers.

The Best Place On The Lake

  • 5 of 5
Karen and Earl are gracious hosts. The facilities are clean and well maintained. We particularly enjoyed the paddle-boat and the canoe. There couldn't be a better place to enjoy the majesty of a storm or the tranquility of an evening on the water.

What a place

  • 5 of 5
If you like to be at a place that special, you would like it, it is awesome! Never have been at a place like this.
Everything is great beyond description and if we would have had some more weeks, we wouldn't have moved at all and just be there and let the scenery pass by, I think, that says all how we felt.
Making trips to Glacier was a must, and we never saw such a lovely landscape and did some hikes. Earl and Karen are nice hosts and the house is fitted with everything you need.
Being in Montana is like you are at home, where the people are so friendly, we will for sure com back.

Boathouse Bliss

  • 5 of 5
From the moment we took the tram down to the boathouse my husband and I were in love. The sound of the water gently lapping against the dock relaxed us and later lulled us to sleep. We felt secluded and wrapped in beauty. The next day we took the canoe to go an "visit" the Mission Mountain view. The lake was calm and the sun out ~ glorious. We then explored Bigfork and secured tickets for a performance of "Chicago" at the Playhouse that evening. It was superb. We also ate at the Bigfork Inn. Their duck is the best I have ever had ~ crispy and delectable. We also shopped for groceries at the Blacktail Groceries in Lakeside. The kitchen is well equipped and had we wanted to we could have eaten all of our meals at the house. Even when it rains, the sheer majesty of the lake and mountains is entertainment enough! Bandit, the cat, was also a quaint and quirky surprise. Our stay was blissful, indeed.

A Quintessential View!

  • 5 of 5
I could hardly imagine a more exquisite view than from this charming boathouse. The beautiful waters of Flathead Lake against the backldrop of the majestic Swan Range...it was very sad saying goodbye. Earl has done an amazing job turning this into a cozy and inviting cabin. It is tastefully decorated and very clean. The bed is wonderfully comfortable. The morning sun shines into the cabin to welcome the day, and if you are lucky, Bandit the amazingly affectionate cat may be waiting outside to wish you good morning. Earl and Karen were great hosts. We highly recommend this rental, and hope to return in the near future.

Great Place to Stay

  • 5 of 5
The boathouse is exactly as described, perfect location with an amazing view. It is small and simple inside, but this area is more about the outdoors. We built a fire the one night, enjoyed the stars from our private dock, shared the porch swing with an extremely friendly cat and even caught a couple sunrises. Loved it and will definitely return.
