About the property

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

This charming Lake cottage shares 100 feet of small pebble beach on Flathead Lake with the owner who lives next door. From the living room and outside patio is a spectacular view of the lake and mountains.

Easy one hour drive to Glacier National Park on mostly four lane US Highways 93 and 2. Located at the North West corner of Flathead Lake, this cottage is only minutes away from world class fishing and hunting. Eight golf courses are within an hours drive. Visitors can also enjoy a wide variety of water sports including boating, fishing, kayaking, sailing and jet skiing (Commercial charters and/or rentals are available in Somers, Lakeside and Bigfork. On Tuesday and Friday evenings you can sit back on the beach with a campfire and watch the local North Flathead Lake Yacht club races directly offshore.

The kitchen is equipped with the usual appliances except a dishwasher (My wife thinks that washing and drying dishes together is a great family activity). Cooking pots and pans; silverware, dishes and glassware are all included. There are several excellent restaurants nearby. Bonus amenities include a washer and dryer in the entry area. A TV with DVD is found in the living room.

The bathroom was remodeled in 2006 with tile floor, pedestal sink and combination tub/shower. The kitchen range and microwave and the clothes washer were replaced in 2005. The

refrigerator was replaced in 2008

Flathead Lake provides excellent fishing for Lake Trout, Bull Trout, West Slope cutthroat trout, whitefish and perch.

About Bruce Jellison

Retired from ownership of a computer sales and service business in 2002.

Bruce Jellison purchased this cottage in 1970

Why Bruce Jellison chose Montana

We bought this property in 1970 while we were working in California. We were both raised in the Flathead, so this was to be our retirement home. We bought a business in Somers and moved 'home' in 1971, built a new house in '77 and raised our 2 children here.

What makes this cottage unique

We live here year round and love the lake. The cottage is located next door to the house we built in 1977. Great place to raise our kids as the lake provided year round entertainment and recreation. Sailing, fishing, boating, water skiing, tubing, swimming are some of the recreation our guests (and grandkids) enjoy. Full kitchen for money saving eating or eat-out at several near by restaurants. Easy drive to Glacier National Part for day trips. .

Perfect Rental

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I absolutely loved this rental. It is a perfect location and being right on the lake was spectacular. It was ideal for my husband and I as a child free getaway, but would also be great if you have one or two small children. The cottage is pristine. I've never stayed in a cleaner rental, it is well taken care of by the owners. The owners are the nicest, most friendly people. You will not regret staying here for your trip, we will be back year after year as long we can!

I thoroughly enjoyed my stay at the cottage on Juniper Bay in Somers Montana on Flathead Lake. The cottage met all my needs. The owner, who lives next door, was very accommodating. The location of the cottage is central to activities such as Glacier National Park, horseback riding AND boating activities on Flathead Lake. I highly recommend staying at this rental.

Highly recommend

  • 5 of 5

Cabin was clean, private and quiet. Lots to do and see in the area including white water rafting, Glacier national park, and White Mountain Resort with a 7 zip line tour. We loved being able to BBQ in the evening at the cabin, eat s'mores over the fire right on the lake and kayak during the day. Fun time had by all.

Great place for rest & relaxation for young family

  • 5 of 5

This place was just the perfect spot for our family of 4 - 10mo and 3yo. The kids enjoyed playing on the shoreline: swimming, fishing, and campfires every night. The view is spectacular. Bruce (owner) had a paddle boat and kayaks we could use to take the kids out. He's also readily available next door if you need any help with anything or tips on where to go. Also, we were there for the Fourth of July and the neighbors put on quite the fireworks show! You don't need to go anywhere. Just sit by the campfire and watch the fireworks. We'd go back in a heartbeat!

Owner's Response: We also have 2 SUP's (Stand Up Paddle Boards) for guests to use. Life jackets are provided to use with all the "water toys", but if you have younger children, you might want to bring their personal life jacket.

We loved being so close to the lake. The kitchen was well supplied and clean. The cabin is comfortable for 2 adults and 2 kids. One kid on the hide a bed and one kid on the long couch.
