You will appreciate our home on lovely Flathead Lake and how easy it is to get to Kalispell, Whitefish Mountain Resort, and Glacier National Park.
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
My family and I have been vacationing on Flathead lake for many years. This was the first time we’ve stayed on this side of the lake and we hope it will not be our last! The house was perfect for what we needed. All of the unique touches in the home, combined with the amazing view made for a perfect little gateway. We hope to return in the future to this sailors gem!
What a great property. Everything you could want for a relaxing entertaining stay. The kayak's are a great plus . The younger children really enjoyed the smaller ones. Great beach area to watch the children play and they can warm up in the hot tub.
The Grahams are great hosts. Their house is beautifully decorated and always in exceptional condition. Everything needed for a great vacation, both inside and out, is provided. We have stayed at the Graham's home many times over the last several years. Every week has been speial for our entire family and has given us all many great memories. Our grandchildren especially love kayaking in front of the house as well as taking longer trips further out on the lake, as we all do. It's also the perfect spot to boat from, and many other activities are close if you choose to spend some time away from the lake.
My family (me, my husband and 3 children) spent a week in Robin’s beautiful lakeside home. The home is high end, tastefully and thoughtfully decorated. The water temp was a bit chilly. We kayaked, rented a boat and fished on Flathead lake. We cooked and grilled everyday which was easy as the kitchen was set up for it. We enjoyed July 4 fireworks from the deck which was fun. We are are close to both Kaleipell and Glacier National Park. We all greatly enjoyed our stay at Robin’s special home.
Absolutely wonderful!! Above and beyond our expectations!
We were a quick last minute booking at Flathead Lake as we normally go to Lake Coeur d'Alene for the warmer water. Our family had a fabulous time staying at Robin and Patti's Sailor House and the water was perfect. Their home is absolutely beautiful and we all felt like we were so welcome and invited to share their little piece of lake heaven. Everything about their home has a cozy feel to it from the inside to the outside living. The few steps to the lake and dock made hoping on our boat so accessible. The wrap around deck expanded the living space and we spent many mornings and evenings enjoying the gorgeous views from the hot tub. The Bonus room was a huge hit with the grandkids and all of the toys and movies made for some awesome hours of peace and quiet in the evenings while the adults enjoyed a glass of wine on the deck! We had a 2 yr old, a 2 month and 3 month old staying with us. We LOVED having a washer and dryer so convenient on the main floor. The kitchen is fully stocked with just about every item you may need and large enough to have several hands helping to prepare meals. The bedrooms are comfy and decorated in a soothing nautical theme. The boat bed was enjoyed by our 14 year old granddaughter where she would go sail away when the littles were just too annoying. They have every water toy, kayak, innertube, floaties, life jackets, lawn chairs, shovels, buckets, etc that you could ever need hidden behind the blue door under the house. It was a great discovery! The fire pit near the water is stocked with all the essentials for roasting marshmallows and sitting by an evening fire. I could go on and on but basically Patti and Robin have covered all the small details that we love when renting a vacation home. (The Dove soap made us smile) They made us feel like we were relatives that had come to visit and completely opened their home and loved to host our family. Thanks Patti and Robin!! It was a magical treat and they are just a special couple! We would definitely enjoy coming back to the Sailor House!
This is the fifth time our family (including children and grandchildren) has stayed at the Graham’s house on Flathead. It’s been a while since our last visit. It was great to be backand we have booked a week for next summer.The house was in perfect shape and beautiful, as it always is. We bring our boat and have a great time tubing, wake boarding, skiing and cruising around the lake. Their dock and the location of their house are ideal for those activities. There is nice public launch a couple minutes from their house. However, you don’t need a boat to enjoy the lake and area around Somers. The view from their deck is gorgeous. The deck, yard, swimming area and water toys provide hours of fun for everyone. They have added a couple smaller kayaks for the kids since we were there last. Our grandkids learned to paddle and used them a lot. I took one of the larger kayaks with our 8 and 10 year old granddaughters and paddled across to the yacht club. The entire week was full of many similar fun activities. The fire with s’mores was a special treat. We continue to highly recommend Graham’s home. We have stayed at many rental properties. We have never had a better experience anywhere else. Robin and Patti are amazing hosts, keep their home in perfect condition and provide everything you could possibly need to have a wonderful vacation.
Our family loved staying at the Sailor House. We have rented for over 10 yrs on Flathead lake and this by far was our favorite rental property. The home is thoughtfully stock with any item you might need. Love the layout of the house, beautiful decor and so spacious. The outdoor living space, deck and dock were just lovely! Also the proximity to Somers is wonderful! Will definitely rent again!
We left wishing we could have stayed longer. Property was so lovely and beautifully located on Somers Bay. Robin and Patti were very gracious hosts, and the decor in the house is tasteful and unique. (There is a reason why you won't find it anywhere else). Our stay was relaxing and so much fun!
