Overview

About the property

Studio, 1 Bedroom + Convertible bed(s), 1 Bath, (Sleeps 2-4)

The yurt is situated on a hillside overlooking the gloriously huge Flathead Lake in Somers, MT. Somers is located on the north end of the lake, next to the open space on the North Shore of the National Wildlife Refuge.

Yurt living is not for everyone but if you enjoy luxury camping in a beautiful setting, this is the place to stay.

The lake is beautiful year around. Mysterious in winter, chilly and aloof in spring, colorful in the fall and irresistible in the summer. Bring your own canoe or kayak for paddling around the lake. The yurt is perfect for relaxing in before and after enjoying the many seasonal activities of your choice.

Breakfast is included. In the yurt is a small refrigerator to hold your beverages and snacks and a electric kettle for making coffee or tea. Other meals can be had at the numerous nearby restaurants in Somers, Lakeside, Bigfork and Kalispell.

The yurt is not handicapped accessible nor suitable for toddlers due to the steps leading up to the yurt and steep hillside. No smoking or open flames inside the yurt. There is a composting toilet inside yurt. Showers provided in the main house. Picnic table and fire pit at the waters edge, wood provided. Dock and lake front is shared with property owner and resident dogs.

Why Michele Neal chose Somers

I had a beautiful hillside above my home overlooking the lake and decided I wanted to put a yurt on the property to add sleeping area for my family and guests.

What makes this cottage unique

Besides the magnificent views of Flathead Lake year-around, you will be treated to the sight and sound of the resident eagles, swans, geese and the daily changes of the lake. Mysterious in winter, chilly and aloof in the spring, rich in color in the fall and irresistible in the summer.

Guestbook comments from the owner

Spectacular views and a wonderful host

  • 5 of 5

This yurt stay exceeded my expectations. The place was clean, the bed was comfy, the view from the shower was even great. Michele really goes above and beyond with her delicious breakfast delivery every morning. Having breakfast with that view was really icing on the cake! I hope to return again!

My friend and I really enjoyed this place. It is cozy and great for a weekend getaway trip. Lake view is one of the best parts here and you can enjoy your morning coffee outside yurt every morning. Definitely will recommend it!

Great little Spot

  • 5 of 5

Our stay was delightful. Michele is a great cook & host. She made sure that we had everything that we needed :) The yurt is perfectly set for an amazing view of the lake. We sunbathed on her dock, which is just a short walk from the yurt. We hiked in Glacier National, only a quick 40 min drive to West Glacier. Nearby Breweries, great food, and met amazing people along the way. Great trip!

I should note that the Composite toilet was super easy to manage and didn't smell.
