Owner info

Year Purchased: 2008

About the owner: 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!

Why the Owner Chose Somers:
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!

The Unique Benefits at this Apartment:
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.
