About the property

2 bedrooms, 2 bathrooms, Lake Frontage, Sleeps 6-8, Duplex

In your face VIEWS! Wrap around deck with BBQ, swinging chair and deck furniture. All perfect for relaxation and fun. Walk down to the lake for a dip in the water, a paddle on the 2 sit on top kayaks or an evening fire in the beach side fire pit.

This home sits on 1 ½ acres. It is conveniently located on the North end of Flathead Lake between the towns of Somers and Lakeside. It is the perfect spot to base from while you explore Bigfork, Whitefish, Kalispell, Columbia Falls and Glacier National Park.

Like to Golf? Golf Digest named the Flathead valley a top 50 golf course destination. There are nine championship golf courses in the area.

The lake frontage is at the bottom of the property and is about 18 feet wide. We just renovated the beach area. It is very user friendly now with a nice dock, a boat lift that will hold a boat up to 7500 lbs and a swimming ladder so you can have endless fun jumping off the dock. We put in sod and now have a gentle beach and fire pit right at the waters edge. Enjoy lounging down at the lake or roast marshmallows in the fire pit. The welcome basket in the home has everything you need for making smore's. We also have 2 sit on top kayaks for your enjoyment.

The master bedroom has lake and mountain views, a queen-sized bed and a TV. The other guest room is very large and has a queen sized bed, a full sized bed, a desk. There is a 3/4 bathroom attached to this bedroom. The living room has a queen sized hide-a-bed couch. The other bathroom is located off of the hallway.

TV’s are located in the living room and in the master bedroom. Both TV's have DVD and VCR players and DISH. There is a DVD/VHS library in the home that you are welcome to use. Wi-fi throughout the house.

I have kids so the home is equipped with some young kid toys, books and dvd's.

The upstairs unit is about 1500 square feet. It has 2 bedrooms, 2 bathrooms, a large kitchen, and a comfortable living & dining area. There is a year round tenant in a downstairs apartment. She has her own entrance.

2 loaner mountain bikes are at the property just waiting for you to go for a ride.

Guestbook comments from the owner

Thank you for allowing us the opportunity to stay in your home. The view of Flathead Lake and surrounding mountain range is priceless. We had lots of fun down at the lake, watching the sailboats in the evening off the deck, sunsets and bald eagles. Very tranquil!

We were pleasantly suprised by all the necessities that were provided to us. Your s'more package was very thoughtful. You certainly went over and above to ensure our stay was great. We all made sure we took some time to use the massage chair. That sure made it easy to be relaxed.

Thank you again for your wonderful hospitality, take care, D,C,A,M,K,S, Red Deer, Alberta, Canada

Beautiful and Cozy

  • 5 of 5

Cheryl's place is fantastic. We felt very much at home and were able to keep the boat right there with us on the dry dock. We will definitely look to see if this is available next summer! One note of caution, it's a steep yard that isn't fenced so beware with kids and dogs.

Thanks, Cheryl!

Lovely view of the lake and you can enjoy the sunrise every morning from inside or on the deck!

  • 4 of 5

The views are great! The water is clean and the dock/beach area very nice! The cabin has all the necessities & more. The deck has sun in the morning and shade the rest of the day so it's easy to enjoy - not too hot, but of course you'll want to be on the gorgeous lake! Perfect location to Glacier Nat'l Park, Somers, & Lakeside. Very enjoyable week! Thanks Cheryl!

Great views and access to the Lake

  • 5 of 5

We rented this property for a week to attend our daughter's wedding reception and more or less have a family reunion. The location was perfect just 2 minutes away by boat and 10 minutes walking. One of the best parts was we felt safe putting our new surfboat on the lake since the boat lift kept it safe, and we had easy access from Somers Bay. There was plenty of space for my husband's brother and family to join us. The views of the lake in the morning where beautiful, I watched the sunrise almost every morning.. The time we spent at the house was very relaxing.

Cheryl was always very prompt to answer any questions we had about the property. I was also very happy that she allowed us to return to the property to search for some jewelry that was left by mistake. Luckily the lost was found and a great stay had a happy ending.

Oh! My! God!

  • 5 of 5

We spent the weekend before July 4th at this lovely home with our friends. All of us were super-awed by the location, home and access to the lake. We regretted that we got to stay there for just 2 days and not more. I already told my wife that we are coming back here for our next vacation and spend time in this lovely vacation rental (by booking early). Cannot ask for more. My daughter and I swam in the lake (by accident, when we could not steer our inflated boat to the beach, both of us dived into the water and swam with the boat in one of our hand and it was fun!).
