Property description

This charming Lake cottage shares 100 feet of small pebble beach on Flathead Lake with the owner who lives next door. From the living room and outside patio is a spectacular view of the lake and mountains.

Easy one hour drive to Glacier National Park on mostly four lane US Highways 93 and 2. Located at the North West corner of Flathead Lake, this cottage is only minutes away from world class fishing and hunting. Eight golf courses are within an hours drive. Visitors can also enjoy a wide variety of water sports including boating, fishing, kayaking, sailing and jet skiing (Commercial charters and/or rentals are available in Somers, Lakeside and Bigfork. On Tuesday and Friday evenings you can sit back on the beach with a campfire and watch the local North Flathead Lake Yacht club races directly offshore.

The kitchen is equipped with the usual appliances except a dishwasher (My wife thinks that washing and drying dishes together is a great family activity). Cooking pots and pans; silverware, dishes and glassware are all included. There are several excellent restaurants nearby. Bonus amenities include a washer and dryer in the entry area. A TV with DVD is found in the living room.

The bathroom was remodeled in 2006 with tile floor, pedestal sink and combination tub/shower. The kitchen range and microwave and the clothes washer were replaced in 2005. The
refrigerator was replaced in 2008

Flathead Lake provides excellent fishing for Lake Trout, Bull Trout, West Slope cutthroat trout, whitefish and perch.

Please call Bruce @ 406-270-8851 if you have any questions or need further information.

Owner info

Year Purchased: 1970

About the owner: Retired from ownership of a computer sales and service business in 2002.

Why the Owner Chose Somers:
We bought this property in 1970 while we were working in California. We were both raised in the Flathead, so this was to be our retirement home. We bought a business in Somers and moved 'home' in 1971, built a new house in '77 and raised our 2 children here.

The Unique Benefits at this Cottage:
We live here year round and love the lake. The cottage is located next door to the house we built in 1977. Great place to raise our kids as the lake provided year round entertainment and recreation. Sailing, fishing, boating, water skiing, tubing, swimming are some of the recreation our guests (and grandkids) enjoy. Full kitchen for money saving eating or eat-out at several near by restaurants. Easy drive to Glacier National Part for day trips. .
