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 Ida Fischer

Hi, welcome! My name is Ida and my husband Maarten and I are the owners of Spruce Cottage; an apartment attached to our 1910 Bungalow in Somers, Montana. I'm a Flathead Valley native, married to a Dutchman. We moved back to the area in May of 2012 after 9 years in the Netherlands. We have three kids, all born over there, and we've been enjoying reacquainting ourselves with my family and all the natural beauty the Flathead.

When we purchased the home, we immediately saw the potential for the studio apartment, and it has been a fun project for us. 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!

Ida Fischer purchased this apartment in 2008

Why Ida Fischer chose Flathead Lake

I grew up West of Kalispell, and always thought Somers would be a great place to live, so when the chance came up to purchase this home directly from family friends, we jumped on it, even though we weren't planning to move back to the States for a number of years. We love not only the location but also all the original details of the old home. The fact that it had a studio apartment as well was a wonderful bonus!

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.

Perfect!

  • 5 of 5

The Somers hideaway was the perfect spot for our last two days in MT. The cottage was cozy and I loved the way it was decorated. We had everything we could want. We enjoyed meeting Ida and Martin and we hope to have the chance to return to this wonderful place again!

Peacefull cottage ideal for some R&R or as a home base all of the outdoor adventures of the area!

  • 5 of 5

Great cottage, open concept kitchen, living room, dining room and some privacy for the bedroom.

Very clean and well maintained.

Enclosed back yard with cozy hammock and set of chairs and table for beverage or snack.

Very private and quiet setting with own driveway and parking area.

Ida and Maarten came over and checked if we needed anything and brought some freshly ground coffee, they have folders with activities and things to do in the area.

We had a great stay and would highly recommend this cottage.
