About the property

Cottage, 3 Bedrooms, 1 Bathroom, (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 18 years ago. We were drawn to the area to partake of all the many year round outdoor opportunities. We have three lovely girls ages 11, 9 and 2 year 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.

great relaxing stay

  • 5 of 5

Even though it was raining we still had a great time. We needed a short get away just to relax. The view was amazing. We really enjoyed the hot tub.

The house was very clean and the bed was very comfortable. Cheryl was very accommodating.

The house was exactly as described, and possibly even better. The deck, private beach, were wonderful. The kitchen had everything we needed. Wouldn't change a thing!!

Clean, comfy and homey...with great views.

  • 5 of 5

We really enjoyed our stay at Cheryl's place. The house has been well laid out for guests, and thoughtfully outfitted with just about everything you might need. We felt at home right away.Though the house is close to the neighbours, it felt very private. and cozy. The views are fantastic and the beach was even better - there were plenty of good skipping rocks, which is very important! We very much appreciated the canoe, and we took a lovely paddle over to Somers. Thank you for sharing your place!

Wonderful Lake House!

  • 5 of 5

We spent three great days at Cheryl's lake house. Everything was exactly as described in the listing. The kitchen was very well stocked with supplies, spices, and condiments, pots/pans, etc. It was very clean. Great views of the lake and we enjoyed relaxing on the deck and the beach next to the water. Would definitely recommend and would stay there again. Cheryl was communicative and accommodated an extraordinary request. Thanks!

There were only two of us there so we only used the top half of the house. Yet I think that it would very comfortably accommodate five adults (more if the pull out beds in the sofas are used).

Our Happy Place!

  • 5 of 5

We stayed July 6-13, 2016. This is our third time at this location and our fourth time at one of Cheryl's places on Flathead Lake. It is such a great spot! The house has a wonderful deck for lake viewing and large windows if you choose to stay indoors. 53 steps down to a beautiful lake front area including boat dock and fire pit. We enjoyed both. The beds are very comfortable and there is nothing like sleeping with the windows open under a soft down comforter on a cool Montana night. There is also a hot tub! This area of the lake is the perfect launching point for many adventures by car, by boat or even walking into Somers. There are plenty of great places to eat and drink in the area and, of course, no trip would be complete without a trip to Glacier National Park. We can't wait for our return and hope it's next summer!!! Thanks, Cheryl!

Another wonderful stay at this Lakefront Cabin

  • 5 of 5

This is our 3rd time booking our stay at the Bechard families property. All of their properties are comfortable, cozy and offer stunning views and amenities. Cheryl thinks of everything. We love relaxing on the deck and just watching the changing light on Flathead Lake. The view is stunning. The kitchen is well equipped, the house is well maintained and it is an ideal place to visit Whitefish, Bigfork, Glacier Park and Kalispell. But Somer's and Lakeside are the nearest towns and they are both charming and friendly with great food options.

We love to walk to Somer's cafe and stop and check on all of the Osprey nests. Cheryl has a canoe for your use and it is lovely to take a sunrise or sunset paddle and watch them fishing to feed their young. The boat launch is very handy and we rent a small boat so the dock is essential.

This beautiful home is ideal for a family or two couples. The beds are incredibly comfortable with wonderful soft quilts and linens. The details make this a special place that feels like home.

If you love lake life, fires on the beach and gazing at the ever changing colors of the water, surrounding mountains and the sky, you will love this place. We are grateful to have spent an entire week in this beautiful home which we call "our happy place."
