The Somer Yurt has 360-degree views that are hard to beat. The bedrooms in the yurt are separate from the living area and have barn doors that lead into the bathroom. The Somer Yurt is fully heated in the winter and there are 2 air conditioners for the bedrooms in the warmer summer months and Dyson fans in the living area. The dome on the yurt can also be opened for even more ventilation. Four glass windows slide open. You will have full access in the yurt but other people are sharing the property, notably the farmer and sometimes in the newly refurbished barn that is nearby. There are a farmhouse, barn, and other farm buildings near the entrance to the farm but that is 1/3 mile away.
The view and the setting of the Somer Yurt are unique. The only land between the yurt and Flathead Lake is the Waterfowl preserve so there are unobstructed views.

During your vacation stay at the Somer Yurt, you will need to have a car. In the winter, a 4 wheel drive is recommended.
A yurt is a round cylindrical dwelling that is capped with a conic roof that has been in use for at least the last few thousand years. Yurts originated in Central Asia (think Genghis Khan and his horde using them), and was valued for its durability, portability, and structural soundness. Yurts are an easy home to put up and take down requiring only a couple of hours of work and could be easily transported on the backs of yaks and horses, which were and still are vital requirements for nomadic people. Yurts are still used today by nomadic herders on the steppes of Central Asia and they have also worked their way into Western society. Yurts were first introduced to the United States by yurt pioneer William Coperthwaite in the 1960s. In 1978, Pacific Yurts began and became the first modern yurt company in North America.
