Somers House Rental Photos and Description

4 Bedrooms, 3 Bathrooms, Sleeps 10

You are going to love this easy living home located right next to the water. You will have hours of endless playing, visiting and relaxing.

This home has a gentle beach with lounge chairs, 2 stand up paddle boards, a paddle boat, a mountain bike and kids bike, all for your use.

The fire pit is located on the beach for night time gathering and s'more cooking. Please bring your own wood.

The dock is large. It has tie downs for 3 boats. It works well for fishing off of, sunbathing on, and for jumping into the water.

The yard around the house is fenced. There is a nice cedar play set with swings, monkey bars, and a slide, climbing wall, play house and sand box.

The deck of the home is right off of the living room, kitchen and dining area. So it is convenient. The large deck has a large bar b q grill, patio furniture for outdoor living and views.

The home is about 2100 square feet. It has 4 bedrooms and 3 bathrooms. The main floor of the home consists of the living room, kitchen, dining area, master bedroom and bathroom, guest bedroom, guest bathroom, and the laundry room, with a nice LG front load washer and dryer. The home has lots of windows for looking out to the lake and mountains.

The upstairs living area has a queen bed a full sized bed, a small bathroom with a toilet, sink and shower and an office area.

The basement has a bedroom with two twin beds in it. This is a nice room for kids as the ceiling is not full height.

The home is equipped with plenty of bed and bath linens, beach towels, shampoo, conditioner, laundry detergent, zip lock bags, foil, saran wrap, spices, oil etc. to get you started. If you don't feel like cooking there are a number of good restaurants close by in the towns of Somers, Lakeside, Bigfork and Kalispell.

A nice walking and riding path is located next to the house that will take you into the town of Somers and connects with the Rails to Trails in Somers. You may take the Rails to Trails path all the way into Kalispell.

The home sits on .52 acres. There is plenty of parking.

If this property is full, I have two other properties on the Lake that are within a mile of this property. VRBO Listing #187466 and VRBO Listing #242096. I strive to make our guests accommodations the best that I can.

We hope that you enjoy your stay.

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, the beauty and the low key feeling of the Flathead Valley. We now have 3 lovely girls ages 10, 8 and 1 year old along with some family pets. We have recently moved to the Island of Kauai so our home personal home is now available for rent. We hope that you enjoy your time in Cheryl and Jason's Lakefront Gem.

Why Cheryl Bechard chose Flathead Lake

Location, Views, Gentle Beach, Great kid yard & Family friendly house. This home is located on the North end of Flathead Lake so it is not far from Glacier National Park and the towns of Kalispell, Whitefish, Big Fork, Somers or Lakeside.

What makes this house unique

Two stand up paddle boards, a paddle boat, loaner mountain bikes and kids bikes, safe fenced in yard, a play set all for you to use. And of course the easy to use gentle beach so close to the house.

Great location and views

  • 4 of 5

We had a lovely stay at this home! It suited our young family (children ages 1, 3 and 6) with ideal space in and out. We particularly liked the beautiful views of the lake, the fire pit, beach, dock and playground. The stand up board and peddle boat were fun extra bonuses! Somers is conveniently located close to shops and restaurants and all the amenities of Flathead lake. Cheryl was very pleasant to work with and even provided baby gates for our 1 year old who was on the move! The only drawback of the house is we felt it needed a bit of modernizing. Simple things such as new bedding and towels would enhance the home.

Everything was as presented on the website or better. Everything was clean on arrival. The beds and bedding are super comfortable. The location is absolutely perfect; beautiful views, close to boat launch, close to amenities, in a nice bay.

I highly recommend this place and we intend to return in the future.

Fantastic location, comfortable and homey

  • 5 of 5

This was an amazing vacation. Flathead Lake is beautiful and there is much to do in the area.

The home is in a great location, is clean, well kept and has good space. We loved the play structure in the yard and that there were a number of toys and other child amenities (like high chair, booster seats, etc.) in the home as we had a 15 month old and a 4 and 6 year old. There is also a fence that protects the yard (and kids) from the water.

The dock and fire pit were amazing.

The home had everything that you would need. Overall, we loved the home, having coffee on the dock in the morning and playing in the water. We would stay here again!

From the Sun to the Moon

  • 5 of 5

We left just about three hours ago. Cheryl and her family have made sure that this home welcomes everyone. Cheryl was incredibly responsive to our communications, particularly considering how late we were in booking a reservation. Each communication was thorough and provided the needed information.

We named our review from the sun to the moon because each day we watched the sun rise from the home and were able to watch the moon rise. It was the perfect opening and closing of each day.

We arrived at the home in the late afternoon last Saturday. We walked in the front door to a stunning view of the lake from every window. Immediately, the kids decided on their space, which was the upstairs loft area. We thought there would be an argument, but because both beds could see the lake a sibling feud was avoided. A storm had just moved through the area and an amazing rainbow was visible end-to-end within the bay where the house is situated.

We have stayed at a number of HomeAway/VRBO properties. Never has another house been so well prepared for our stay. For example, there is a notebook and book available with all kinds of information regarding the house and your stay in the area. Moreover, this home had all kinds of wonderful indoor and outdoor amenities. Indoors we were able to enjoy the kitchen with all of its necessities (and then some) for cooking, all of the ingredients for S'mores, the spacious bedrooms, washer/dryer, a sauna shower and jetted tub. There were also televisions available. That said, aside from the late night news, the televisions were not used nor were the kids on electronics.

While we did partake of so many of the local activities that abound, we also enjoyed the immense amenities of the outdoors at this home. Activities started daily with paddle boarding and paddle boating and most nights ended with a fire in the perfectly located fire-pit. There are life-jackets available in the house. Their wonderful neighbor offered us the opportunity to use the floating dock for water activities.

The house is centrally located to everything. Big Fork, Kalispell, and Lakeside are short drives away. We were able to easily access jet ski rentals, a fishing tour, shops, and restaurants. It also only took a short drive to get to Glacier National Park where we were able to hike, take the "Going to the Sun Road," go horseback riding, and rafting.

Cheryl, thank you and your family for sharing your home with our family.

Amazing! Wonderful! Perfect!

  • 5 of 5

What a wonderful place to stay for an entire week!!! The minute we opened the door, I knew this house was going to be fantastic. Some of my family ran immediately to the back and jumped in the lake from the dock - clothed and all! Everyone around us were so friendly and happy to be of help should we need anything at all. I'm sort of a clean freak and coming into a house that was spotless, let alone labeled and stocked was the BEST!!! We had packed up our crock pot and blender, then realized we didn't need any of that. The mini fridge helped for extra drinks too! Everyone slept comfortably and had their own space to spread out and unpack their belongings. Even when the weather turned bad on us a couple days, we had the nice TV to hook up ipad and watch movies or play games. Paddle boards were AWESOME! We had rented a jet ski from the place up the road and while renting we met a WONDERFUL woman who makes the coolest beads! Everyone in Somers is VERY FREINDLY! I am currently on a running streak where I must run one mile each day so the path along the road up into the small town made this so easy to accomplish! And running right along the lake was PERFECT! Did I mention how stocked this house was!?! They had shampoo, soap, q-tips, towels, sunscreen, books....I could go on and was so nice having access to various things that everyone tends to forget while packing. We celebrated my daughter's 22nd birthday here and went into Lakeside to The Tamarack - highly suggest this brewery! Great FOOD! We have family that live in Kalispell, so having them out for dinner and sitting around fire pit was great. We never worried about space or feeling too crowded. Our teenagers appreciated the use of wifi because when it had rained everyone could check emails or do summer homework...who am I kidding...they played their games and got on social media!!! haha. Out of our group of 10 people, not one person had one single thing to complain about regarding this beautiful place on the lake!! Other than when it was time to go home. Thank you for allowing us to make our family memories so memorable!!!!
