This charming Lake cottage shares 100 feet of small pebble beach on Flathead Lake with the owner who lives next door. From the living room and outside patio is a spectacular view of the lake and mountains.
Easy one hour drive to Glacier National Park on mostly four lane US Highways 93 and 2. Located at the North West corner of Flathead Lake, this cottage is only minutes away from world class fishing and hunting. Eight golf courses are within an hours drive. Visitors can also enjoy a wide variety of water sports including boating, fishing, kayaking, sailing and jet skiing (Commercial charters and/or rentals are available in Somers, Lakeside and Bigfork. On Tuesday and Friday evenings you can sit back on the beach with a campfire and watch the local North Flathead Lake Yacht club races directly offshore.
The kitchen is equipped with the usual appliances except a dishwasher (My wife thinks that washing and drying dishes together is a great family activity). Cooking pots and pans; silverware, dishes and glassware are all included. There are several excellent restaurants nearby. Bonus amenities include a washer and dryer in the entry area. A TV with DVD is found in the living room.
Flathead Lake provides excellent fishing for Lake Trout, Bull Trout, West Slope cutthroat trout, whitefish and perch.

About Bruce Jellison
Retired from ownership of a computer sales and service business in 2002.
Bruce Jellison purchased this Cottage in 1970
Why Bruce Jellison chose Flathead Lake
We bought this property in 1970 while we were working in California. We were both raised in the Flathead, so this was to be our retirement home. We bought a business in Somers and moved 'home' in 1971, built a new house in '77 and raised our 2 children here.
What makes this Cottage unique
We live here year round and love the lake. The cottage is located next door to the house we built in 1977. Great place to raise our kids as the lake provided year round entertainment and recreation. Sailing, fishing, boating, water skiing, tubing, swimming are some of the recreation our guests (and grandkids) enjoy. Full kitchen for money saving eating or eat-out at several near by restaurants. Easy drive to Glacier National Part for day trips. .

A fantastic spot for a getaway!
The cottage is situated in a perfect spot on Flathead Lake - we loved it! The cottage is older, and had a rustic feel to it, and it was immaculate! Bruce and Betty made us feel so welcome, and were such gracious hosts. I'd highly recommend this property to anyone looking for a bit of solitude on this beautiful lake; the Flathead Valley is one of the most beautiful places in the world, in my opinion!
Thank you for the great review. You are welcome to come down anytime for another stay.
Just What We Were Looking For
The location of this quaint cottage is perfect. We are kayak enthusiasts, and the proximity of the cottage to the lake couldn't be better. Everything we needed was included in the cottage, and Bruce was an excellent host. Though we pretty much stayed put, the location of the cottage would be great if you wanted to go to Glacier or explore the Kalispell/Whitefish area. We thoroughly enjoyed our stay.
Glad you had a good time at our lakeshore cottage and enjoyed the water toys (Kayaks, Stand-up Paddle Boards, Canoe and pedal boat).
I thoroughly enjoyed my stay at the cottage on Juniper Bay in Somers Montana on Flathead Lake. The cottage met all my needs. The owner, who lives next door, was very accommodating. The location of the cottage is central to activities such as Glacier National Park, horseback riding AND boating activities on Flathead Lake. I highly recommend staying at this rental.
Thank You for staying with us.
Cabin was clean, private and quiet. Lots to do and see in the area including white water rafting, Glacier national park, and White Mountain Resort with a 7 zip line tour. We loved being able to BBQ in the evening at the cabin, eat s'mores over the fire right on the lake and kayak during the day. Fun time had by all.
Glad your family enjoyed your visit. Looking forward to your visit again next year.
My husband and I absolutely loved this rental. It is a perfect location and being right on the lake was spectacular. It was ideal for my husband and I as a child free getaway, but would also be great if you have one or two small children. The cottage is pristine. I've never stayed in a cleaner rental, it is well taken care of by the owners. The owners are the nicest, most friendly people. You will not regret staying here for your trip, we will be back year after year as long we can!
Thank You Amanda. Glad you enjoyed your trip.
