After three days of hiking in Glacier National Park we booked a one night stay at a bed and breakfast near Flathead Lake. We were most excited for a warm shower and a comfy bed, but we walked away with a whole lot more than that.
There is this wonderful bed and breakfast overlooking Flathead Lake in Somers, Montana called the Outlook Inn. It is the kind of place you could envision moving in to and never leaving. Michelle, the owner, is easy to talk to, makes a killer breakfast and is passionate about providing her guests a memorable experience. Upon meeting her, Michelle is someone you can instantly be friends with.
Michelle and her family take great pride in making their home inviting. From the organic garden (which much of your food might come from) to the large upper deck, very quickly you feel as though you are at a friend's home. As we gathered around the breakfast table I was reminded how there is a certain intimacy which exists at bed and breakfasts. In general, the clientele are people who are not afraid to make connections, share stories and itinerary suggestions with other guests.
On that particular morning, breakfast included fresh huckleberry pancakes, breakfast potatoes and fresh sausage links. It was enjoyed amongst good hearted people and sweeping views of Flathead Lake. Next time we are in Somers, MT there is no question where we will be staying.
There are four rooms at the Outlook Inn, each with their own theme. We stayed in the "Honeymoon Suite" which had a wonderful view of Flathead Lake.
