About Claude & Cheryl Hoffmeyer

Twenty year residents in Somers, Montana. Absolutely love it in Montana and think most other people will love it too. We traveled to Montana shortly after retiring and found the people to be friendly and self sufficient. When we traveled to Montana, we noticed that many native Montanans retired to the Flathead Valley. We were fortunate to purchase these homes that had been used as Bed & Breakfast Homes by the previous owner. We like the privacy of a Forest Road off the beaten path. Challenging in the winter but worth it because of the wildlife and spectacular views that still amaze me. My wife likes to say 'The destination is worth the journey!'

Claude & Cheryl Hoffmeyer purchased this house in 1997

Why Claude & Cheryl Hoffmeyer chose Flathead Lake

This property appealed to us because of the forest and it's wild life. It has privacy and spectacular views of the lake and mountains as well as forests.

A Little Slice of Heaven

  • 5 of 5

My family and I had an absolute joyful experience at Claude and Cheryl's little (or maybe not so little) get away. Traveling "out west" for our annual summer vacation, this was the 12th time I have used VRBO and the second time in the Great State of Montana. First off, Claude has done it right. Their home has three floors, plenty of room for the wife and I, two kiddos, and the M-in-law. We were away from people, but close to to town and our ultimate destination of GNP. So thank you for allowing us to enjoy your breath-taking views of Flathead Lake and enjoy our morning coffee from the three decks. Also, thank you for some of the best hospitality that I have experienced in all the VRBO's that I have been to. Cheers!

Owner's Response: I met Kenny and his two children on my meet and greet that I like to do. I was extremely impressed with his two children who came out to where their father was and Introduced themselves and shook my hand. That is a sign of good parenting. Then Kenny and I exchanged common experiences in sports and where he lives and grew up. I could have just stayed with them during their whole visit. I would absolutely recommend him to ANY VRBO owner. And I would love to have him come back again to our VRBO. He has a wish to buy a piece of Montana and I would help him in any way I could. He is a good man and would be an asset to the area where ever he might buy. Thank you Kenny for picking our VRBO this tme. Claude & Cheryl Hoffmeyer

Great House, Beautiful Location

  • 5 of 5

The location of this lovely house was sincerely perfect. It was quiet, in the woods, on top of a mountain, with an amazing view from anywhere on the property. The photo shown in the listing is taken from the main porch. Deer at our front steps every day and Claude was very helpful and accommodating. The house was clean and well maintained.

This house and property are absolutely wonderful!

We have been to many places and have rented many houses. This was by far the best yet! Not only was the house beautiful and comfortable, it had everything you would need and many little extras. We had a great stay!

Wonderful gathering spot

  • 4 of 5

Gorgeous views (despite smoke from distant wildfires), lots of wildlife, and plenty of room for family to roam or gather. Thoughtful hosts. A wonderful week for us all -- from London, Tennessee, Atlanta and Missoula.

Above and Beyond!

  • 5 of 5

Our family had a great time here on a hill overlooking beautiful Flathead Lake. Our hosts went way beyond the norm to take care of our family, especially the children. They loved the gazebo, playhouse, seesaw, and sandbox. I liked the hammock. A great family reunion of memories.

Owner's Response: Thanks John for the nice review. You and your family were great guests and I found conversing with you very interesting and I could have dominated your time here just talking with you and maybe shooting some hoops with you too. You left the house in very nice condition for my turnover crew and I appreciate it . Claude Hoffmeyer
