About Ida Fischer

Hi, welcome! My name is Ida and my husband Maarten and I are the owners of Spruce Cottage; an apartment attached to our 1910 Bungalow in Somers, Montana. I'm a Flathead Valley native, married to a Dutchman. We moved back to the area in May of 2012 after 9 years in the Netherlands. We have three kids, all born over there, and we've been enjoying reacquainting ourselves with my family and all the natural beauty the Flathead.

When we purchased the home, we immediately saw the potential for the studio apartment, and it has been a fun project for us. We are excited to open it up to you and welcome you to the lovely village of Somers, we think you'll love it here!

Ida Fischer purchased this apartment in 2008

Why Ida Fischer chose Somers

I grew up West of Kalispell, and always thought Somers would be a great place to live, so when the chance came up to purchase this home directly from family friends, we jumped on it, even though we weren't planning to move back to the States for a number of years. We love not only the location but also all the original details of the old home. The fact that it had a studio apartment as well was a wonderful bonus!

What makes this apartment unique

The studio apartment is small, but open and well laid out on the inside. It has a calm, peaceful feel to it, and I enjoy quiet moments spent there cleaning or fixing it up away from the hustle and bustle of our house with three young children. Apart from the coziness of the apartment itself, its location really does make it a hidden gem. Somers is a unique community worth exploring by foot or bike, and Lake access is just minutes away.

Cozy, clean and cute

  • 5 of 5
I came to Spruce Cottage for a one-night getaway to do some work and relax. There was a blizzard outside (!) but I was super cozy and comfortable. The cottage is very clean with cute decorating and everything you need--including a bookshelf of great reading. Thank you for your hospitality.

Comfortable, welcoming place in a beautiful area

  • 5 of 5
We really enjoyed our stay at Spruce Cottage. There was plenty of privacy, the bed was super comfortable, the bathroom was nice, it was very clean, and we were so glad to be able to have our dogs with us without issue. The owners are very friendly and made themselves completely available should we have any needs or questions. Breakfast at the Somer's Cafe (2 blocks away) is a must. We went to Somers to be relatively close to Glacier NP, but fell in love with Flathead Lake and the entire area. We would definitely stay at Spruce Cottage again.

Perfect!

  • 5 of 5
Thank you Ida for a wonderful stay! This property is beautiful and sweet, and Ida was a great hostess. She very kindly accommodated our early arrival, and I so appreciated that. The cottage is the perfect size, and the kitchen was very well stocked with the necessary items. We especially enjoyed the yard, and made good use of the BBQ, outdoor seating, and hammock. Ida has a great eye for decorating; this cottage is cozy and feels like home. We visited over the fourth, and Ida made sure we were all set up with things to do. Thank you for such a wonderful place to call our own for a couple of nights!

Hidden Gem

  • 5 of 5
What a delightful stay. The pictures do not do justice to this clean, quiet, perfectly located
gem. Wether walking to the beach to enjoy the serenity of Flathead Lake or spending time relaxing in the hammock, the cottage afforded us all that we needed for our get-away. We will definitely be back!
