About Timothy Light

We enjoy the beauty of Montana lakes from our kayaks, and the outdoors of hiking Forest Service and Park Service trails. We travel when we can, usually in the winter, but enjoy the snow with skis and snowshoes. Our home reflects our interests with simple comfort and great views.

Timothy Light purchased this cottage in 1998

What makes this cottage unique

The very private driveway can be a challenge with snow in the winter but we never tire of the view of the lake and the mountains as it changes daily, even hourly, with the sun and clouds. Morning beverage in front of the window gets my day going. And after a hard day at work, there is nothing better then coming home to the quiet of the house with the smells of the pine woods and the fresh mountain air.

The property was just as shown on the website. We would stay here again. Plenty of room for family. Close to Glacier and Flathead. Cost was perfect.

Scenic and Comfortable!

  • 5 of 5

We stayed at this lovely home for several days in late June and was perfect for us! The house is well equipped and well cared for, comfortable furnishings, very clean with quaint character. The owners were wonderful to work with and very organized in all communications. The location can't be beat - and this home has amazing views with large picture windows in the living, dining room, even a beautiful kitchen window view. And the views off the back deck - wow! The pics don't do it justice - it surpassed our expectations. Close to so many activities in neighboring areas and the little town of Somers is charming. We definitely recommend it and would love to return someday. Thank you!

Wonderful place to vacation. Everything you could dream to need is available at your fingertips. Clean, quiet. The views from almost every window are awesome. We were given wine to drink and they told us of a small cafe, really close by that had awesome food, we went so often we were on first names by the time we left. You could not ask for nicer hosts, and you knew if anything was needed they would be there to help. Cannot say it enough this is a AWESOME home to stay at. Most relaxing vacation we have had in years. THANK YOU Tim & Eddie for letting us enjoy your rental..

Wonderful stay!

  • 5 of 5

We couldn't have asked for a better experience! The cabin was beautifully situated overlooking Flathead Lake and was incredibly welcoming. We spent our days in Glacier National Park and it took us about 50 minutes to get to the entrance. We were up early and got home late and both said that we would have loved another day to just relax in the cabin and enjoy the space! After a long day in the park it was great to return to a comfortable space and a kitchen to prepare a meal. Tim and Eddie left us a gift certificate for an awesome cafe, Somers Bay Cafe, and we couldn't have had a better morning before driving down to Yellowstone, thank you! We were driving a Subaru Outback and had no problems getting up the driveway in the summer. We are already talking about planning a return trip to Flathead Valley and would definitely stay in Tim and Eddie's beautiful cabin again!

Somers! Lots to see around the area.

  • 4 of 5

Quiet area close to Somers; quaint town for breakfast, lunch or Del's Bar. Close to Lakeside as well. Not on Flathead Lake but, close to it and can see it from outside patio. We enjoyed hanging out and grilling few nights.

Perfect retreat

  • 5 of 5

Four of us, all family, fit this house very well. Attractively furnished, very roomy, a TV room for movies and network news, dinner outside on the quieter side of the house. We had a plumbing problem one day to which Tom responded at once.
