              Year Purchased: 2008

              About the owner: We are valley locals who can't believe we get to live in this incredible place! We have two amazing little boys that are always ready for adventure. Pete is an engineer and I (Charis) own my own business as well as work at a local outfitting store, Rocky Mountain Outfitters. We both enjoy the outdoors and spend as much time there as possible. We love to hike, bike, sail, swim, run, camp and fish and frequent beautiful places like Glacier Park. We also have a large extended family in the area that we are blessed to spend lots of time with. The Flathead Valley is as much a part of us as we are of it!

              Why the Owner Chose Somers:
              We love the community of Somers and enjoy wonderful neighbors who have become friends. Our property is a unique and local experience as well as being quiet and tranquil. We have amazing views and are minutes from the Lake. We have close proximity to everything that makes Montana; Montana.

              The Unique Benefits at this Cottage:
              You will probably never sleep as good as you will in our house. Visitors have often commented about how quiet and peaceful this place is at night and if you want to recreate on Flathead Lake, you are only minutes away.
