Distinct Communities of the Flathead Valley

Elbow Room in Micro-Communities

Flathead Valley is home to several small, well-preserved distinct communities that offer a unique Montana experience.  If you are looking for a property off the beaten path, in an area with a special story to tell, consider a look at some properties in these distinct communitites:

Somers:  Located on the north shore of Flathead Lake, Somers is reminiscent of a sea-shore village.  Take a winding drive up to the water tower for an impressive view of the length of Flathead Lake.

Lakeside:  This appropriately named town offers lakefront living, small town amenities, a quick drive to Blacktail Ski Area, boat storage and launch facilities, and early sun in the morning.

Woods Bay:  Located on the northeast shore of Flathead Lake, Woods Bay sits at the edge of the cherry orchards just south of Bigfork.  Stop in at the Flathead Lake Brewery for a fine Montana micro-brew.

Creston:  Beautiful farmlands and horse ranches cover the foothills of Columbia mountain and the beginning of the Swan mountain range.  This area provides farmland living with dramatic mountain backdrops, and seems to get more sun than the northern parts of the Valley.

West Glacier:  This seasonal village welcomes visitors to Glacier National Park year round, but sees the heaviest traffic in the summer.  Solitary mountain living meet small-town values in this friendly community that is surrounded by wilderness.
