Overview

Flathead Lake Cottage Rental Photos and Description

Studio, 1 Bedroom + Convertible bed(s), 1 Bath, (Sleeps 2-4)

The yurt is situated on a hillside overlooking the gloriously huge Flathead Lake in Somers, MT. Somers is located on the north end of the lake, next to the open space on the North Shore of the National Wildlife Refuge.

Yurt living is not for everyone but if you enjoy luxury camping in a beautiful setting, this is the place to stay.

The lake is beautiful year around. Mysterious in winter, chilly and aloof in spring, colorful in the fall and irresistible in the summer. Bring your own canoe or kayak for paddling around the lake. The yurt is perfect for relaxing in before and after enjoying the many seasonal activities of your choice.

Breakfast is included. In the yurt is a small refrigerator to hold your beverages and snacks and a electric kettle for making coffee or tea. Other meals can be had at the numerous nearby restaurants in Somers, Lakeside, Bigfork and Kalispell.

The yurt is not handicapped accessible nor suitable for toddlers due to the steps leading up to the yurt and steep hillside. No smoking or open flames inside the yurt. There is a composting toilet inside yurt. Showers provided in the main house. Picnic table and fire pit at the waters edge, wood provided. Dock and lake front is shared with property owner and resident dogs.

Why Michele Neal chose Flathead Lake

I had a beautiful hillside above my home overlooking the lake and decided I wanted to put a yurt on the property to add sleeping area for my family and guests.

What makes this cottage unique

Besides the magnificent views of Flathead Lake year-around, you will be treated to the sight and sound of the resident eagles, swans, geese and the daily changes of the lake. Mysterious in winter, chilly and aloof in the spring, rich in color in the fall and irresistible in the summer.

Guestbook comments from the owner

Lovely! We will visit again!

  • 5 of 5

Great place to stay on Flathead Lake. We though the view was really wonderful, as well as the amazing breakfast that Michelle prepared each day. A lovely and comfortable place to stay, with lots of things to do in the nighboring towns when not on the lake. Michelle was very kind to accomodate our cousin and his girlfriend who were visitng from L.A. with their special requests and we greatly appreciated her going over the top for them. Thanks a bunch!

Great yurt, comfortable, beautiful views, delicious savory breakfast brought up to us to on our deck overlooking Flathead Lake. Michele is a wonderful hostess! Very quite and peaceful. Private dock and beach area for swimming, etc. Close to Kalispell, Bigfork and Whitefish.

Excellent view and even better breakfasts

  • 5 of 5

What an incredible place. Looking out over the lake for delicious breakfasts was only part of the charm of this quirky yurt. All the amenities I needed, including a small fridge, extra water, and of course the composting toilet (which was very handy and not the least bit odiferous). If I find myself in the neighborhood again I definitely know where I'll be staying.

Best stay that Montana can offer!

  • 5 of 5

My wife and I were very impressed with our stay. Michele was a great host, and her breakfast was phenomenal. The yurt is spacious and very comfortable to sleep in. The lake access is great and secluded. We will be staying again as soon as we can.
