About the property

You are going to love this easy living home located right next to the water. You will have hours of endless playing, visiting and relaxing.

This home has a gentle beach with lounge chairs, 2 stand up paddle boards and a paddle boat for you to use.

The fire pit is located on the beach for night time gathering and s'more cooking. Please bring your own wood.

The dock is large. It has tie downs for 3 boats. It works well for fishing off of, sunbathing on, and for jumping into the water.

The yard around the house is fenced. There is a nice cedar play set with swings, monkey bars, and a slide, climbing wall, play house and sand box.

The deck of the home is right off of the living room, kitchen and dining area. So it is convenient. The large deck has a large bar b q grill, patio furniture for outdoor living and views.

The home is about 2400 square feet. It has 4 bedrooms and 3 bathrooms. The main floor of the home consists of the living room, kitchen, dining area, master bedroom and bathroom, guest bedroom, guest bathroom, and the laundry room, with a nice LG front load washer and dryer. The home has lots of windows for looking out to the lake and mountains.

The upstairs living area has a queen bed a full sized bed, a small bathroom with a toilet, sink and shower and an office area.

The basement has a bedroom with two twin beds in it. This is a nice room for kids as the ceiling is not full height.

The home is equipped with plenty of bed and bath linens, beach towels, shampoo, conditioner, laundry detergent, zip lock bags, foil, saran wrap, spices, oil etc. to get you started. If you don't feel like cooking there are a number of good restaurants close by in the towns of Somers, Lakeside, Bigfork and Kalispell.

A nice walking and riding path is located next to the house that will take you into the town of Somers and connects with the Rails to Trails in Somers. You may take the Rails to Trails path all the way into Kalispell.

The home sits on .52 acres. There is plenty of parking.

If this property is full, I have two other properties on the Lake that are within a mile of this property. VRBO Listing #187466 and VRBO Listing #242096. I strive to make our guests accommodations the best that I can.

We hope that you enjoy your stay.

About Cheryl Bechard

My husband and I moved to the Flathead Valley from California 17 years ago. We were drawn to the area to partake of all the many year round outdoor opportunities, the beauty and the low key feeling of the Flathead Valley. We now have 3 lovely girls ages 12, 10 and 2 year old along with some family pets. We have recently moved to the Island of Kauai so our home personal home is now available for rent. We hope that you enjoy your time in Cheryl and Jason's Lakefront Gem.

Why Cheryl Bechard chose Somers

Location, Views, Gentle Beach, Great kid yard & Family friendly house. This home is located on the North end of Flathead Lake so it is not far from Glacier National Park and the towns of Kalispell, Whitefish, Big Fork, Somers or Lakeside.

What makes this house unique

Two stand up paddle boards, a paddle boat, loaner mountain bike, safe fenced in yard, a play set all for you to use. And of course the easy to use gentle beach so close to the house.

My girlfriend's and I have a wonderful time at this VRBO and even got to enjoy the water in October! The pedal boat was a very nice addition. The house was very clean and organized and all the beds were super comfy. My girlfriend's and I loved the steam shower. Overall, we had an amazing time and hope to come back someday! I would recommend this place to anyone. Thank you for letting us enjoy your home!

When you find the perfect place, it's so hard to give it the perfect review as you don't want the word to get out making it impossible to book again, however, that wouldn't be fair to owners! We had an amazing stay at Cheryl & Jasons wonderful home in Somers Bay. Due to the fires and smoke we almost canceled but we are so happy that we didn't. The weather had turned, there was a bit of rain and in turn the clouds and view couldn't be beat! The home sleeps 10 comfortably and I believe with the futon in the upstairs room you could actually sleep 12. There are 2 full baths plus a tiny 3/4 bath upstairs. Cheryl allowed us to bring our small dogs, and having the fenced in backyard was a perfect situation for us. My husband & I met my sisters there, (who live in Stevensville MT) so it was just the 4 of us. The home is cozy and comfortable and very well stocked with just about anything you need. Cheryl is quick to respond to any questions we had prior to arrival. We truly relaxed and couldn't get enough of the view. I'm hoping to return both in the winter and especially in the summer months so we can take advantage of the lake activities. We fell in love with the bay, and the surrounding area. Thank you Cheryl for sharing your wonderful home. We hope to return in the near future!!

The house was perfect. Would have been nice if the smoke from the fires were not there.

Best. Vacation. Ever.

  • 5 of 5

Our family does one nice summer vacation each year (6 adults, 2 kids under 6 y/o). This has been our favorite spot so far and could easily break us of the habit of trying a new place/location each year. I am almost hesitant to give it a review in fear that it will become booked up before I can re-book for next year! The kids loved the play area, the adults loved the nice deck, more than enough room for everyone and the home is well stocked with all you need to cook and enjoy family meals together. Close to Glacier (40-50 min to west entrance) and Flathead lake is spectacular. We will return!

Great House. Wonderful for kids.

  • 5 of 5

Good central location! Great Lake access. Loved having water toys at the house and private beach access. The kids played all day and we had our own dock for a boat. Very close to Lakeside, and only about 15 minutes from Bigfork. Whitefish is only a short 25 minute drive.

The boat lift at the home will hold a small boat up to 2500lbs. There are boat slips for larger boats.
