Flathead Lake Apartment Rental Photos and Description

1 Bedroom (open lay-out), 1 Bathroom, Sleeps 2+

Spruce Cottage is a charming and cozy apartment located in historic downtown Somers at the heart of the Flathead Valley; a perfect place to come home to at the end of a long day enjoying the great outdoors in any season! It is an attached studio apartment with a separate driveway and entrance and an enclosed, private yard. Spruce Cottage has a full kitchen, a newly remodeled bathroom with bath and shower and a cozy bed-nook. A futon sofa provides extra sleeping space and a bar and small table create ample seating.

About Ida Fischer

Hi, welcome! My name is Ida and my husband Maarten and I are the owners of Spruce Cottage; an apartment attached to our 1910 Bungalow in Somers, Montana. I'm a Flathead Valley native, married to a Dutchman. We moved back to the area in May of 2012 after 9 years in the Netherlands. We have three kids, all born over there, and we've been enjoying reacquainting ourselves with my family and all the natural beauty the Flathead.

When we purchased the home, we immediately saw the potential for the studio apartment, and it has been a fun project for us. We are excited to open it up to you and welcome you to the lovely village of Somers, we think you'll love it here!

Ida Fischer purchased this apartment in 2008

Why Ida Fischer chose Flathead Lake

I grew up West of Kalispell, and always thought Somers would be a great place to live, so when the chance came up to purchase this home directly from family friends, we jumped on it, even though we weren't planning to move back to the States for a number of years. We love not only the location but also all the original details of the old home. The fact that it had a studio apartment as well was a wonderful bonus!

What makes this apartment unique

The studio apartment is small, but open and well laid out on the inside. It has a calm, peaceful feel to it, and I enjoy quiet moments spent there cleaning or fixing it up away from the hustle and bustle of our house with three young children. Apart from the coziness of the apartment itself, its location really does make it a hidden gem. Somers is a unique community worth exploring by foot or bike, and Lake access is just minutes away.

Awesome, Cozy Cottage!

  • 5 of 5

We absolutely loved staying at the Spruce Cottage - so much that we stayed an extra night! The bed was super comfortable, the cottage was very clean and the location was perfect to explore the lake, take a quick trip to Kalispell, or a little further to Glacier National Park. Ida and her family were wonderful hosts and had lots of tips for exploring the area. When we come back to Flathead lake, we will be staying here, without a doubt!!

Wonderful place to spend some time!!

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I thoroughly enjoyed our 3 days at this cozy little retreat. Everything we needed was there. The little fenced in back yard offered us opportunities to just sit and read a book and to grill our dinner! Our host were available but unintrusive. I would highly recommend this spot to spend some time in the Kalispell area.

This was the perfect place to stay for us. Simple, quiet, easy to find and had everything we needed. A short walk up the road gives a great view of the lake!

Totally Amazing

  • 5 of 5

As soon as we walked into the door we were mesmerized by how beautiful the place was, we felt immediately at home and the owners made us feel at home. We totally recommend staying here, the location was perfect right in the middle of 2 amazing towns, walking distance from the lake and the Summons itself was amazing.

5 stars all around!

Perfect Somers Cottage

  • 5 of 5

We stayed for a long weekend in April and had a wonderful time! Ida had tons of information in the cottage about local attractions and activities. The cottage is very clean and she has a little bit of everything in the event you forgot something! We really appreciated the small yard off the cottage for our two dogs. Thank you for your hospitality, Ida. We will be back!
