About the property

1 Bedroom (open lay-out), 1 Bathroom, Sleeps 2+

Spruce Cottage is a charming and cozy apartment located in historic downtown Somers at the heart of the Flathead Valley; a perfect place to come home to at the end of a long day enjoying the great outdoors in any season! It is an attached studio apartment with a separate driveway and entrance and an enclosed, private yard. Spruce Cottage has a full kitchen, a newly remodeled bathroom with bath and shower and a cozy bed-nook. A futon sofa provides extra sleeping space and a bar and small table create ample seating. Relax in the hammock outside, enjoy the mountain views, walk down to the Somers Bay Cafe for breakfast, or hop on your bike to explore the nearby 'Rails to Trails' bike path. Coming to the valley for skiing this winter? Our central location and cheap winter rates makes us a perfect and affordable base for exploring both Whitefish and Blacktail Ski Resorts!

About Raina and Brian Pratt

Hi, welcome! Our names are Raina and Brian Pratt and we have four children. We are the managers of Spruce Cottage; an apartment attached to a 1910 Bungalow in Somers, Montana.

Brian and I both grew up in the Flathead Valley. We lived in Northern California for almost ten years but most recently moved back to the beautiful state of Montana and the quaint town of Somers to raise our family.

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!

Raina and Brian Pratt purchased this apartment in 2008

Why Raina and Brian Pratt chose Flathead Lake

We are friends with, Ida and Maarten Fischer, the owners of this wonderful property. It includes the main house bungalow where we live full time and the Spruce cottage. While our friends are in the Netherlands we are the care takers of the property and the hosts of the Spruce cottage guests. We love not only the location but also all the original details of the old home. The fact that it has a studio apartment is a wonderful bonus! We are so glad to be in Somers and share this sweet spot with guests from all over the world.

What makes this apartment unique

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.

Wonderful!

  • 5 of 5

We spent two nights during our honeymoon here and fell in love with Spruce Cottage! So clean, "homey" and in a wonderful location. Safe, close to the lake, gorgeous views. We weren't fortunate enough to meet the owners however they seem super sweet and very hospitable. To top it off the bed was super comfortable. If we ever go back to Somers again, we know where we're staying!

A very comfortable, quiet apartment with a small shaded yard. Somers is great for evening walks.

  • 5 of 5

Somers is right on the shore of Flathead Lake and Glacier National Park is only an hour away with easy access to gas and groceries nearby or in Kalispell. Many of the original buildings are still standing for those interested in history. The apartment is very comfortable, clean, and quiet. The hosts are very helpful and pleasant.

Just perfect

What a wonderful little cottage feel. It felt just like home when we walked through the door and our son loved the fenced backyard and hammock. We would definitely stay here again!
