Somers House Rental Photos and Description

House, 2 Bedrooms + Convertible bed(s), 2 Bathrooms, (Sleeps 6-8)

In your face VIEWS! Wrap around deck, barbeque and outside furniture. All perfect for relaxation and fun. Walk down to the lake for a dip in the water.

This home sits on 1 ½ acres. It is conveniently located on the North end of Flathead Lake between the towns of Somers and Lakeside. It is the perfect spot to base from while you explore Bigfork, Whitefish, Kalispell, Columbia Falls and Glacier National Park.

Like to Golf? Golf Digest named the Flathead valley a top 50 golf course destination. There are nine championship golf courses in the area.

The lake frontage is at the bottom of the property and is about 18 feet wide. We recently put in a dock with a boat lift that will hold a boat up to 7500 lbs. Enjoy lounging down at the lake or roast marshmallows in the fire pit. The welcome basket in the home has everything you need for making smore's.

The master bedroom has lake and mountain views, a queen-sized bed and a TV. The other guest room is very large and has a queen sized bed, a full sized bed, a desk. There is a 3/4 bathroom attached to this bedroom. The washer and dryer are also in this bedroom. The living room has a queen sized hide-a-bed couch. The other bathroom is located off of the hallway.

TV’s are located in the living room and in the master bedroom. Both TV's have DVD and VCR players and DISH. There is a DVD/VHS library in the home and a CD player that you are welcome to use. Wi-fi throughout the house.

I have kids so the home is equipped with some young kid toys, books and dvd's.

The upstairs unit is about 1500 square feet. It has 2 bedrooms, 2 bathrooms, a large kitchen, and a comfortable living & dining area. There is a year round tenant in a downstairs apartment. She has her own entrance.

2 loaner Mtn. Bikes are at the property just waiting for you to go for a ride.

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 3 lovely girls ages 11, 9 and 1, along with some family pets. We hope that you enjoy your time in our piece of Montana paradise.

Why Cheryl Bechard chose Flathead Lake

View, Views and more views. Room to roam. Great Location. Easy drive to Kalispell, Bigfork, Whitefish and Glacier National Park.

What makes this house unique

Flathead Lake Frontage at an affordable price. Watching Eagles and Osprey. Fire pit and lounge chairs by the lake. Wrap around deck great for bar-b-q's and comfortable outdoor living. 2 Loaner Mountain Bikes.

Guestbook comments from the owner

Thank you for allowing us the opportunity to stay in your home. The view of Flathead Lake and surrounding mountain range is priceless. We had lots of fun down at the lake, watching the sailboats in the evening off the deck, sunsets and bald eagles. Very tranquil!

We were pleasantly suprised by all the necessities that were provided to us. Your s'more package was very thoughtful. You certainly went over and above to ensure our stay was great. We all made sure we took some time to use the massage chair. That sure made it easy to be relaxed.

Thank you again for your wonderful hospitality, take care, D,C,A,M,K,S, Red Deer, Alberta, Canada

Amazing view!!!!!

  • 4 of 5

This is a lovely property and the host has done a great job making sure that guests have everything they need. She really has thought of everything! The highway is directly behind the house but there are double paned windows so if you keep the doors closed it's quiet (I'm a very light sleeper but I had no problems at all). There is a little dock down the slope that's just for the house so when it's sunny that's a fabulous place to lounge in complete privacy.

Amazing Vacation Spot

  • 5 of 5

This was an ideal home for our family! It has a magnificent view! We felt completely 'At Home' in this perfectly clean, well stocked home. All the special touches - life jackets, laundry detergent, s'mores supplies - made it so easy for us to slip into vacation mode. Our family of 5 really enjoyed the paddle boat and lake front. We ate every meal on the deck. Simply gorgeous view! One evening we sat on the patio at Tamarack in Lakeside. We highly recommend that restaurant to anyone visiting. We spent an afternoon in Bigfork, climbed Mt. Aeneas, and enjoyed a day at Glacier National Park. We would LOVE to return next summer!

Well furnished home

  • 4 of 5

We had a nice week on Flathead in this well furnished home. The photos are very accurate. It was very clean when we arrived and Cheryl has provided lots of little extras that make this home nice for someone who is flying in and can't bring a lot of stuff. Spices, condiments, napkins, zip-locs, coffee, beach towels, etc. The beds were all good for sleeping - no sagging mattresses. We liked the paddleboat on the water! The view was perfect. Having high speed internet was a big plus for our gadget happy group. The location was convenient for day trips to Glacier and Whitefish.

A couple of things to be aware of - this cottage is close to a noisy road. This is probably true for many Flathead cottages. The walk down to the water is steep and, as the listing says, there is not a huge waterfront. However - it was more than enough for us. Also, you need to use a ladder off of the dock to get into the water.
