Somers House Rental Photos and Description
5 Bedrooms, 3.5 Bathrooms, 9 sleeps

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.

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.

Robin or Patti Graham purchased this house in 2003

Our home in Somers is nestled on the northwest side of beautiful Flathead Lake. 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 mile away along the paved walking and bike path is Somers Bay Café, serving great breakfasts and lunches. A 5 minute drive south to Lakeside is the Tamarack Brewing Company, a fun spot to relax and have a great meal and handcrafted ales.

Located 8 miles south of Kalispell, our community is the destination spot for locals as well as tourists. All four seasons, Somers offers something for everyone. Ski the slopes of Blacktail Mountain (only 30 minutes away) to sailing and boating majestic Flathead Lake. We are 30 minutes from Glacier Park International Airport and only 45 minutes from the magnificent Glacier National Park and Whitefish Mountain Resort (Big Mountain).

Whether you are looking to relax or to play we have it all. Enjoy water skiing, jet skiing, sailing, kayaking, swimming or fishing right off our private dock or just unwind inside and catch a movie in our comfy home or just observe the spectacular lake views. Just a quick 10 minute drive away you will also find Eagle Bend Golf Club, one of the best courses in the Northwest. Other areas of interest include the Bigfork Playhouse, Glacier Symphony and Chorale, and the Hockaday Museum of Art.

From the first cup of coffee out on the deck overloooking the glassy lake, to the sunsets at the end of each day while enjoying s'mores around the fire pit - this beautiful vacation home is as close to perfect as we have ever experienced.
Panoramic views from every window, plenty of space to accomodate our family of 8 very comfortably. so many amenities provided you wil lack for nothing. Included as well are many water 'toys' and kayaks for all the family to enjoy.
And conveniently located to all attractions, including Glacier National Park.
You'll want to come back every year.

Our family just returned from spending a week at this wonderful home on Somers Bay. Robin and Patti are great people and easy to work with. The home is beautifully furnished with every attention to detail, and the nautical architecture and furnishings add something out of the ordinary. We love to be on the water, and Somers Bay is perfect for all kinds of water sports. Watching the sail boat races from the deck, and family time around the fire pit laughing and roasting marshmallows, is one of our favorite memories. This location on the lake is also close to lakefront restaurants that are easily accessible by boat. Just wish we had more time to spend at this beautiful place. This vacation was everything we hoped for and more! We'll definitely be going back next summer.

My husband and I spent almost two weeks in the "Sailor's Home" on Flathead Lake. The fireworks over the 4th of July were spectacular from the lounge deck and by the glass fireplace. I took the time to relax and reread "The Dove" which was so fitting and exciting to see all of the memorabilia from Robin's voyage, so eloquently displayed around the home. Hot tubbing every night, while over looking the lake and the stars was so romantic. Almost every room has a spectacular view and the photos don't begin to do justice to the beauty of this home. We highly recommend this place for both fun and relaxation.

My family and I had a wonderful time staying at this BEAUTIFUL custom home on Flathead Lake. Not only is the home right on the lake but it also has a beautiful view of the lake and mountains from every room in the house! The home is gorgeous with very high end amenities. The owners are very nice people and made the stay a complete joy! The home and property is immaculate! We enjoyed Kayaking, swimming in the lake and of course just feeling like we were apart of nature. Watching the Osprey catch fish right in front of us was an amazing sight! You will not be disappointed :)
