Flathead Lake Cabin Rental Photos and Description

Cottage, 2 Bedrooms + Den, 1Bathroom, (Sleeps 5-8)

Escape to this lakefront home on Flathead Lake. 2 bedrooms, plus den and one bathroom. The home has spectacular views of the Lake and Rocky Mountains. Enjoy 68 feet of your own very private beach. You can boat, swim, sail or fish right off your beach and dock. There is a covered boat lift which can hold a boat up to 2500 pounds. A picnic table, lounge chairs and fire pit are at the waters edge for your relaxation and enjoyment. Loaner canoe on the beach that you may use.

Roast marshmallows in the evenings around the lakeside fire pit or up at the house kick back on the large deck, fire up the gas grill and get something to drink while watching the sailboats sail by for the bi-weekly regatta. Or just take a relaxing soak in the outdoor hot tub.

Located on the North end of Flathead Lake this home is the perfect location for your vacation. A number of good restaurants are close by. Within a short drive are nine golf courses, antiquing, art galleries, and live theater, shopping and dining. The National Bison Range, hunting, horseback riding, biking, water slides and hiking in the Jewel Basin and hundreds of other places are also in the area.

Glacier National Park is less then an hour away. Take a day trip to one of the most spectacular places in the Rocky Mountains for hiking, sightseeing, taking pictures or whitewater rafting. Don’t forget to get some huckleberry ice cream while you are there.

Bigfork is ten miles to the East, Lakeside is four miles to the South, downtown Kalispell is nine miles to the North and Whitefish is 24 miles to the North.

The home is 1600sf. On the main level is the fully equipped kitchen, dining room, living room, bathroom, laundry room and the large master bedroom. The spacious deck is also on the main level. The master bedroom has a California King bed, twin pull out couch, TV and sliding glass door that opens onto the deck. The living room has a queen sized hide-a-bed. Downstairs are two additional rooms. One of the rooms has a queen sized bed and a door to the outside. The other room has a double sized hide-a-bed couch and a twin bed.

A portable crib and high chair or booster chair are available upon request. TV/DVD/VCR/Cable and loaner movies are in the living room along with an ipod base. Wi-Fi is available throughout the home.

There are stairs (9 steps) to get from the parking to the home. There are stairs from the home to the private beach (53 steps). This home is not for everyone as there are stairs to get to the home and stairs to get to the lake. The home has one toilet. The shower in the bathroom is small. However, there is a larger area outside of the toilet and shower room that has another decent sized vanity, sink, mirror and bath tub. The stairs to go to the downstairs rooms are narrow. With that said, if you choose to rent this home knowing these things, you will not be disapointed by the views, the lake front, your own private hot tub on the deck and comfort of the property.

About Cheryl Bechard

My husband and I moved to the Flathead Valley from California 17 years ago. We were drawn to the area to partake of all the many year round outdoor opportunities. We have three lovely girls ages 10, 8 and 11 months old along with some family pets. We recently moved to Kauai for a couple of years. We hope that you enjoy our little piece of Montana paradise.

Why Cheryl Bechard chose Flathead Lake

We think that the location of our vacation home is special. It is close to Kalispell, Lakeside, Bigfork, Whitefish and only an hour from Glacier National Park. Along with the location of the home comes the wonderful views of lake, Flathead mountains and the quaint town of Somers. Plus the home comes with a canoe on the beach. What could be more enjoyable than a early morning or evening canoe rides?

What makes this cabin unique

We love to see the bald eagles and osprey as they swoop down on the lake to catch fish for their young. We also enjoy watching the bi-weekly sailboat regatta from the deck.

The sunrise is spectacular. Sun pours in the home. The alpine glow sunsets are lovely.

One of my favorite things about the beach is how private it feels. For my girls I like how part of the beach glides gently into the water and is great for swimimng and how the other part of the beach is a rock wall.

Smores around the fire-pit are also a favorite.

After a day of fun in the Flathead Valley, nothing beats a soak in the outside hot tub.

Guestbook comments from the owner

We are having a wonderful week and will be sad to go tomorrow. Today we took in the zip line at Big Mountain, hiked down from the Summit house and capped off the day with a soak in the hot tub, a jump in the lake and a fire in the firepit. It doesn't get any better than that.

We loved the proximity to Glacier, Big Fork and Whitefish. We loved the dock, the beach, the deck and the hot tub. What beautiful views - with a rainbow almost every night.

We will go home with fond memories of both an active and peaceful, relaxing week.

Thank you. The house was well supplied and we felt very welcome.

average rating of 4.8 based on 26 reviews


  • 5 of 5

Everything was amazing. The owner was super friendly and helpful, and the house was awesome. We spent two nights in the house and were SO pleased with our choice to stay there! The location (on the outskirts of Somers) is wonderful as it is close to many delicious bars / restaurants / breweries in Lakeside. It isn't far from Kalispell, Whitefish, or Glacier either.

We went before peak season, so we felt like we had the entire lake to ourselves, but I imagine it's much busier during the summer months. Regardless of the season, I guarantee it's worth it! The stairs down to the lake are lit by little solar lights so you can see at night, and the private beach / dock are awesome. There is a canoe and fire pit down by the water, and the beach is in a little secluded cove so you have it all to yourself / no neighbors to share with. The house itself is also pretty tucked away, so it is very private despite being right on the lake. The hot tub was also covered / private and was a huge plus after two nights of hiking.

The morning view from the upstairs bedroom is beautiful, as is the view from the bay windows in the living room. It was only the two of us, so the house had more than enough room; however, it would be perfect for a family of 4-6 or two couples wanting a getaway. The house was so clean, well stocked, and the bed was insanely comfortable.

All I can say is I regret not having the time for a longer trip. Next visit will definitely be at that house and for a few more days! Thank you!

Well-equipped but awkward

  • 3 of 5

The location of this property is super. We were happy to spend hours watching the coots on the lake below. It is the best equipped rental I've been to. Cheryl thought of everything; flashlights, binoculars, firewood, plenty of kitchen wares and tools, tons of extra pillows and blankets, even ingredients for making S'mores.

The awkward part is the teeny single bathroom. We had a couple good sized guys who did not fit well in the tiny shower. And with 2 couples, one had to go through the whole house including steep narrow stairs to get to the potty. It worked, but this part of the property was a bit of a surprise.

Great Value, Great Location

  • 5 of 5

It was our anniversary weekend and I found this place last minute. I emailed Cheryl on Thursday and we were booked within 1 hour. The next day we were at this wonderful location and everything was perfect. The house was actually stocked better than any house I have rented. Lot's of little extras like coffee, syrup, butter, fishing poles, canoe, etc. The view was over the top and since it was Fall, we had the dock and entire north end of the lake to ourselves. The beach area was very private and clean. It was only my wife and I so we didn't utilize the downstairs bedrooms. The upstairs was comfortable, clean and inviting. The house itself is older and appears to have been added on to a few times but all blended together well. The only negative I can see if what has been mentioned before... one toilet. But if you know this going into the rental you can plan accordingly and have a wonderful vacation. In the future, I would not hesitate to rent this place again.

This place is perfect

  • 5 of 5

This is our 4th trip to Montana in the last five years, the third time renting from Cheryl and the second time renting this property. The location is perfect for our needs. You can walk into Somers for breakfast at the Café and it's an easy drive to Lakeside, Kalispell, Bigfork, Whitefish and Glacier Park. It is very peaceful too. But for the haze from the park fires, the views were amazing. The deck, the waterfront, the hot tub, the comfy bed....I could go on and on. We will most definitely be back and highly recommend this location and its owners!!

Excellent, Book It Now!

  • 5 of 5

My wife and I spent our first anniversary at the lakeside home and it was a fantastic experience! The views from the property (from the deck, down on the dock, in the house, from the hot tub) are absolutely phenomenal! The place is just awesome. To me what really gives this place a 5 star rating was the care that was put into making this house a rental house. There are little signs and reminders everywhere that make the house feel like a home. Every house has its own little idiosyncrasies and the owner has done an excellent job describing all the little details that might or could possibly go wrong and offers ways to avoid them and also to fix them should the happen to occur. This attention to detail, coupled with the houses fantastic location, makes this a phenomenal rental. Do not hesitate to book this place, even with high expectations it did not disappoint!

Perfect Fall Weekend

  • 4 of 5

The best thing we liked was the great views from the house onto Flathead Lake and being right on the water. We brought our kayaks and launched right from the beach below the house. Even my 87 year old mother-in-law joined us for a kayak ride to look at all the beautiful houses along the shore. Navigating the many stairs to get from the house down to the beach was challenging, but a good work-out :)

The only disappointment was one very small bathroom for 7 adults. We wished there would have been a second bathroom in the lower level of the home where bedrooms are located, especially during the night. The stairs between the main level of the home to the lower level are narrow and steep probably due to the age of the home.

Everyone had a great time and details offered to guests were not overlooked by the owners.
