Property description

Robin and Patti’s Home on Lovely Flathead Lake.

Right on the water, what more can you ask!

Our sailing and ocean background has heavily influenced the design and construction of our 3061 square foot home. It has a very coastal and nautical feel with painted open beam ceilings, painted tongue and groove wood plank walls, and Brazilian cherry wood floors. Almost every room has a gorgeous view of the lake and the home is decorated with our mementos from around the world. The kitchen has custom knotty pine cabinets plus granite countertops and a lovely viewing area that is perfect for your first cup of coffee. The master suite and elegant travertine tiled bathroom are on the main floor next to a smaller bedroom and bath perfect for children. The living room has a hand crafted tile gas fireplace. Upstairs are two more bedrooms and a striking bathroom with a large soaking tub and tiled shower. There is a very spacious family room where you can play games or watch a movie. The fifth bed room is on the third floor, aptly named, “The Crow's Nest”, where the view is spectacular. The deck has two levels, one for barbequing and outside dining, the other for lounging and soaking in the hot tub. We have a nice dock for your boat and two stable kayaks to tour the lake.

Our home was designed and built by us, Robin and Patti Graham, home builders and author of the books “Dove” and “Home is the Sailor”. We are now offering our home as a weekly rental while we do some more traveling and enjoy our grandkids.

Owner info

Year Purchased: 2003

About the owner: After a 5 year epic voyage of sailing a small boat around the world and writing the books “Dove” and “The Boy Who Sailed Around The World Alone”, Patti and I left the west coast of California forty two years ago to ride the wave of the “Back to the Land Movement” in Montana. We bought a quarter section of mountain top for $95 dollars an acre, built our log home, grew our own food and raised the gamut of farm critters. We also wrote about our struggles of growing in the Christian faith and our experiences of trying to live simply in “Home is the Sailor”. After 32 years we were missing the water so in 2003 we bought an older cabin on Flathead Lake. After spending our first night there we never spent another at the ranch and have never once looked back. We had come home. Two years later we built and moved into our dream home next door to our lovely historic cabin. After we had a couple of wonderful family “VRBO” vacations in Mexico we decided to list our lake cabin as a VRBO rental. It was a great experience. But as time goes on the wanderlust was creeping back and we wanted to do some more traveling. We sold our lake cabin, built nearby a wonderful 3750 sq. ft. “VRBO” yearly rental, 'Bella Vista', on the hillside overlooking Somers Bay and now are offering our personal home, 'A Delightful Sailor's Home', as a VRBO summer rental, as we come and go. We hope you will enjoy the Flathead Valley as much as we do.

Why the Owner Chose Somers:
Our home in Somers is nestled on the north shore of beautiful Flathead Lake and Blacktail Mountain. Flathead Lake is 28 miles long and up to 15 miles wide. The lake’s sparkling waters and miles of tree-lined shore offer unlimited recreational opportunities and wildlife habitat. Overlooking it all are the magnificent Swan and Mission mountain ranges. A 5 minute drive will also get you to Tamarack Brewing Company. The “rack” is the best spot to relax with great food and handcrafted ales. Located 8 miles south of Kalispell, our community is the destination spot for locals as well as tourists. All four seasons in Somers offers something for everyone, from skiing the slopes of Blacktail Mountain (only 30 minutes away with spectacular scenery) to sailing and boating majestic Flathead Lake. We are 30 minutes from Glacier Park International Airport and 45 minutes from the majestic Glacier National park and Whitefish Mountain resort. Whether you are looking to relax or to play we have it all. Stay inside and catch a movie in our comfy home or take a soak in the hot tub overlooking the lake. In the winter and spring go ski, snowboard, snowshoe, cross country ski or snowmobile. In the summer enjoy water skiing, jet skiing, sailing, kayaking, swimming or fish right from our private dock. Just a quick 10 minute drive away you will also find Eagle Bend Golf Club that has 27 holes of exquisite golf. One of the best courses in the Northwest, Eagle Bend has held #1 in Montana Six consecutive years. Other areas of interest include the Bigfork Playhouse, Glacier Symphony and Chorale, Hockaday Museum of Art, the Conrad Mansion, and the Central School Museum.
