Somers, a petite locale, does have its own hardware store, post office, school and several uniquely different restaurants offering great eating. It also boasts of some of the original homes on the north end of Flathead Lake.

Between Somers and Lakeside, along the westshore of Flathead Lake, you’ll find some sweet cherry orchards dotted between lakefront homes and condominiums like The Terraces at Somers Bay and Waterside Condominiums or the neighborhood of Mission View Terrace.

Lakeside, MT a recently expanding village, has seen much growth this past decade in residential development and businesses catering to dining and service needs in the area.  Blacktail Mountain Ski area is within 20 minutes, which creates a winter destination for downhill and cross country skiing.  While visiting in the area, stop by the Lakeside & Somers Chamber of Commerce office located in the West Shore Community Library in Lakeside for local information and travel guides.  With a hefty private donation, the public has a new, outstanding 1.5 acre public park on Flathead Lake at Lakeside Volunteer Park.
