SPECTACULAR WALK OUT BEACH HOME ON PRISTINE FLATHEAD LAKE

Somers House Rental Photos and Description

Home - 5 Bedrooms - 5 Baths - Lake Front

Welcome to Paradise!

Enjoy 105' of incredible pebble beach WATERFRONT, surrounded by immaculate gardens right outside your door. Your Private Dock is just steps away from your 3200 square foot home that has been lovingly updated. FIVE BEDROOMS & FIVE BATHS will meet all your vacation needs. FOUR BEDROOMS HAVE ON SUITE BATHS and enjoy breathtaking views of the lake and mountains.

The Master Suite is located on the main floor off the living room and has a KING bed and a TV / DVD. A beautiful old style Montana Rock wood burning fireplace is the centerpiece of the main floor living/dining area. This room also includes a Flat Screen TV / DVD and Stereo System. The laundry room is also conveniently located on this level.

Two more Bedroom Suites are located on the 2nd floor. One room has a QUEEN bed and the other adjacent room has TWO TWIN beds. The fourth Bedroom has a QUEEN bed, the fifth Bedroom has TWO TWIN beds, both are located on the lower level adjoining the Family room which enjoys lake level access. This entertainment area has a massive Slate gas fireplace and a Flat Screen TV / DVD/VCR for movie nights. Wireless Internet is available over the entire house.

Outdoor dining options abound. They include the teak table on the beach, or the 50' deck off the main floor (great for morning coffee or intimate cocktails) or the fire pit circle at the waters edge. BBQ your favorite dishes with a gas BBQ located on the beach level patio.

Your PRIVATE DOCK has plenty of room for sunbathing, as well as 2 kayaks to explore our nearby islands. Your own boat is welcome too. For swimmers, the dock forms a protected Swim Area to soak and splash in. For more adventurous open water swimmers, large swim buoys mark the swim area beyond the dock.

This Home has a colorful, eclectic decor with a Montana flavor. The VIEWS from the 16' of floor to ceiling windows of Somers Bay are the Stars you will never forget.

For those of you who are not locked into school schedules, we will be extending our rental period through the month of September. It is perhaps the most month beautiful at the Lake. The crowds have gone home and the weather and Lake conditions are still fantastic.

My wife and I fell in Love at Flathead Lake 10 years ago and have made it our home since 2005. We share a love of the outdoors and all things regarding the water. Flathead Lake is the largest fresh water lake west of the Mississippi River. Its' Crystal Clear Water and Mountain Vistas, topped by Montana's BIG SKY captured our hearts. In our opinion Somers Bay is THE BEST Location on the Lake. Located at the Northern end of the lake, it is a hub of crossroads that will take you in all directions to Beauty and Adventure. We Know YOU Will Agree!

Ed Kerley purchased this house in 2005

Perhaps the most unique character of our home in Somers is its location to nearby amenities. With over 161 miles of shoreline around Flathead Lake, most people must drive to get to their destinations. We can walk! The paved walking/biking trail at the top of our driveway is part of the Rails to Trails system which now connects Somers to Kalispell & beyond. Within a mile you have historic downtown Somers, with its historical buildings and eatery options. The local Post Office is also in town. Flathead Lake is also famous for its sailing & we have a front row seat every Tuesday & Friday night as the Somers Bay Yacht Club have their weekly sailing races. The Flathead Valley is also home to excellent, affordable golf. Several distinctive courses are available for play to the public. And the Summer season also brings a whole host of art shows & street fairs to the valley. Kalispell also hosts a Farmers Market each weekend in Summer that showcases local produce & crafts. But without a doubt, our valleys crowning glory is Glacier National Park. About a 45 minute drive, it is one of the most beautiful locations in the world & is a must see.

The best lake vacation yet

I write this review reluctantly because we finally have found the perfect lake rental home and we don't want too many people to know about it. Ed does such a great job of maintaining the house, yard, dock, and beach, and for our 2 boating families it was paradise. The kitchen was one of the best stocked we have found as we do a lot of cooking. The location is great, walking distance to Somers for a wonderful breakfast at the cafe, or a short drive to Lakeside for more restaurants and groceries, as well as a reasonable drive to Kalispell to stock up and shop. The day trip to Glacier National park driving the Going to the Sun road was spectacular too. Our family does a lot of wake boarding and surfing and we found the bay quite suitable and quiet enough. We also had fun catch and releasing small trout over by the islands in the reeds. Brought in a fish almost every cast. The weather was sunny and hot every day but because the evenings are cool the house was never hot. All in all, a great vacation and we look forward to returning.

Exceeded Expectations

Our 3 generation family stayed for 1 week in July and had a wonderful experience. The property and home are exceedingly well taken care of and Ed is gracious, responsive and seeks to ensure you have a fantastic stay in his house. The home is well appointed and the kitchen is fully stocked (minus food) and has things like tupperware for storing leftovers, etc. Everything that you would typically need in a kitchen is there which is super handy. The views from the house are unforgetable and the rooms very comfortable. We loved every minute of our time there and would gladly return. There is some daytime noise from hwy 93 due to its proximity to the house but it diminishes at night. Aside from this, the house and location are perfect and we would strongly recommend this to anyone.

Fabulous Family Bonding Trip

We stayed here the last weekend before school started for 1 last vacation with our 4 kids. Ed was very helpful and wanted to make our stay a memorable experience. The pictures of this house do not do it justice. The location is perfect. The kids were up at sunrise on the kayaks every morning. We are trying to plan our next trip already. We wouldn't stay anywhere else. - The Rommens
