Lakeside Chalet Rental Photos and Description

Chalet, 1 Bedroom + Detached Unit, 1 Bath, (Sleeps 2)

Flathead Lake Suites' Chalet is located on 314 feet of private lakefront on Angel Point peninsula jutting out into Flathead Lake. Flathead Lake Suites features lake swimming, fishing, free canoeing and rowboating, secluded walking trails among giant trees on its large property, and a short walk to a nearby 17 acre wild bird refuge. The panoramic views of Flathead Lake on three sides and across the lake of six mountain ranges and Glacier National Park peaks are stunning. Exclusive privacy for adults away from the bustle of the world makes Flathead Lake Suites a unique hideaway. We are weekly and during June through September, Saturday to Saturday.

A wrought iron railing front porch leads into the 750 sq. ft. Chalet with vaulted ceilings, chandeliers and large windows, rain-forest gold marble flooring, mirrored sliding door closets that reflect the lake, a carpeted living area with two loveseats, large rock fireplace, 50' wide-screen television with Blue-Ray player and WiFi. The Chalet features a fully equipped modern kitchen with custom-built cabinets, granite counter-tops and peninsula, and a large dining area. The luxury bath with a custom built walk-in tile and granite shower for two, a deluxe king size bed in the bedroom, and wide sliding doors leading to a private log-railing balcony with rocking chairs and tables make the Chalet a luxurious home away from home.

Flathead Lake Suites is a paradise high in the Rockies where you can wade on the beach and swim in pristine Flathead Lake. Enjoy the free canoeing and row boating. Play on the sun walkway and dock, unwind on the fishing dock, see the lake flowing underneath a lake platform with soft lounges, and relax on the hammocks. From a bench swing in a private cove observe the grebes, geese, loons, and ducks swimming and diving. Roast marshmallows on the campfire (supplied with free wood and roasting sticks), barbecue by the octagonal log gazebo, or watch squirrels, chipmunks, and other wildlife from the haven of a log arbor, and watch the bald eagles and osprey (birds with up to a five-foot wing span) soar overhead and land in Flathead Lake Suites' wooded acres and the bird refuge's 17 acres of giant fir and pine trees.

Because Flathead Lake Suites is located on a peninsula in Flathead Lake away from the bustle of the world, you can see the colorful wide panorama of sunrises and sunsets, the moonrise and shimmer on the lake and bright stars in the clear mountain sky. The scenic beauty and woodland serenity, enhanced by wildflowers, waterfalls, reflecting pools, and moss covered rocks, make Flathead Lake Suites more than a luxurious place to stay - it is a destination highlight!

Please see Flathead Lake Suites web site at for more information and to see more pictures of this waterfront paradise. If the Chalet is booked, our web site also has information and pictures of our two condos on a different location at Flathead Lake Suites.

Flathead Lake Suites is adjacent to or near: Glacier National Park, 11 major golf courses, Wild Horse Island and Jewel Basin, hiking and cross-country skiing in scenic forests, Blacktail Mountain and Whitefish Mountain ski resorts, the National Bison Range and Federal Bird Refuge, world-class restaurants, and all Glacier Country fun!

About The Owner

When she was seven years old, Linda moved to the Flathead Valley with her family. Her father was a lumber man and Linda grew up hiking in Glacier Country's forests and swimming in the area's many lakes. Wayne had traveled extensively in most of Europe while he was in the military. In August 1961, before his senior year at Brigham Young University, Wayne traveled with a buddy to visit their friend who was working in Glacier National Park. Wayne thought then that Glacier Country was the most beautiful place he had ever seen in Europe or the United States. He decided it was where he wanted to be on his honeymoon. Wayne met Linda the next month in a class they were both taking. They were engaged by Christmas and married August 15, 1962, spending their honeymoon in Glacier National Park.

We both knew we wanted to live in the Flathead Valley so in 1963, we spent the summer looking at the many areas and lakes in Glacier Country. We were both teachers and we stayed with Linda's parents for the summer. We had been out all day with a realtor and still had not found what we wanted. We went home to Linda's parents' house and, in the newspaper, found an ad by owner for this magnificently situated property. It was on the end of Angel Point peninsula jutting out into Flathead Lake. Nothing had even come close to the breathtaking panoramic beauty of this place.

The Owner purchased this chalet in 1963

Why The Owner chose Lakeside

It took us thirty years of working in California before we could come home to build. During the summers we cleared brush and got the land ready to build on. We drilled a well 286 feet deep into rock to get our great water well. We felt lucky with each step of the process because of the awesome grandeur of Flathead Lake and the six spectacular mountain ranges you can see from here. We lived in a tent, then a trailer house and finally in June 1993 we retired and came home to build. The luxury Chalet was completed in February 2011.

What makes this chalet unique

There are many places here on the property and on the waterfront where you feel like you are the only person(s) in the world. The osprey (birds with up to a five foot wing span) and bald eagles land in Flathead Lake Suites' trees or the 17 acre bird refuge just steps away. Take a motor boat tour with Wayne and Linda, relax in the hammocks or log benchswings, roast marshmallows on the campfire, fish from the dock or rowboat, canoe and swim in the lake, and cross-country ski or hike in the miles of nearby forest trails. Eleven golf courses, Glacier National Park and all Glacier Country fun are nearby.

The spectacular sunrises, sunsets, moonrises sparkling across the lake, fresh mountain air among the giant trees, blue clear lake and panoramic views are unique in the way they can be seen and experienced here. We shut the wrought iron gates with elk on them and our guests tell us that they feel they are shutting out the world.

Guestbook comments from the owner

We want to say thank you for allowing us to share in your wonderful and amazing place on Flathead Lake! The accommodations were wonderful and we very much enjoyed meeting you -- all in all it was a wonderful experience and we will be back!

Absolutely spectacular!!! You won't be disappointed!!!

  • 5 of 5

We are currently on our fourth night out of seven and we are in love! This place is magical. Wayne and Linda provide a piece of paradise to their guests. I can't even put in to words how amazing their property is. You just have to come experience it yourself! If you are looking for peace, beauty, have found it. Just a few minutes away and you are in Lakeside! How perfect is that! We have ventured out every day, but today we came back to enjoy more of the property and relax in our condo.

I can't say enough for how much hospitality Wayne and Linda provide. They are wonderful people and to be honest you don't even know they are here. Nor do you realize there are other guests here. I am so glad my husband stumbled upon their place for our Montana vacation. This is my first time in Montana, what an amazing first time experience!

Book your vacation now!!!

Truly - "The Last Best Place"!!!

  • 5 of 5

It is rare that we stay anywhere in the world where we can truly say - "this exceeded our expectations" and we have fairly high expectations. Trust us - stay here and your expectations will be exceeded - guaranteed!

In short, staying in Montana, in Flathead County area, in Lakeside, and at Linda and Wayne's thoughtfully planned and exquisitely manicured VERY secluded (peaceful) "home" is sincerely a dream vacation.

There is nothing, absolutely nothing, that hasn't been thought out as far as your needs no matter how long or short your stay. Just bring you and your clothes. (PS - the weather at Lakeside can be volatile ranging from shorts to needing to pack for snow).

The winsomeness of Linda and Wayne is commendable. How rare it is to be so welcomed in to someone's home and instantly be made to feel like you are a lifelong friend. That is how it feels to stay at one of Linda and Wayne's "condos".

Privacy, Serenity. Unparallelled vistas. Crisp, clean air. Apples. Cherries. Flowers. Green grass. Gardens. Tress, trees, and more trees. Solitude. Rest. Re-creation. Peace. Gentle breezes. Lapping water. Trickling fountains. Eagles. Deer, deer, and more deer. Ospreys. Crystal, crisp glacial waters. Mountains.

I could go on and on and on - but honestly we are torn, because as we told our hosts we are conflicted between sharing the joy and beauty of staying here and keeping this gem all to ourselves - LOL.

We highly recommend you call for your reservation as far in advance as possible for the simple fact that return guests come back again and again and again. We booked a year in advance.

Finally - within 5 minutes drive to "downtown" (ha ha) Lakeside you have the Tamarack Brew Co to eat at, Blacktail (MT) grocery, gas station, Homestead and Farmhouse breakfast restaurants (old/classic and new eclectic respectively), Seven upscale restaurant, and a DQ. Drive slowly and enjoy the deer eating roadside.

PSS - Insider note - inquire about securing a "private" lake tour with Linda and Wayne. Weather and their schedules permitting - this is priceless and memorable.

Thank you Linda. Thank you Wayne. We will be back!!!

Favorite Place on Earth!

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I look forward to our annual vacation at Wayne and Linda's amazing property on Flathead Lake. We already have our reservations for next year, and plan on returning for many years to come! Each year we find new paths to explore, and new places to enjoy the amazing panoramic views of the lake, mountains, and colorful sunsets. There are beautiful gardens, water fountains, trails, swings, hammocks, sitting areas, a gazebo, a boat dock, a lakeside patio, and even a fishing platform to make our time there even more relaxing. We enjoy cruising around in the canoe and wading in the water, and we were pleasantly surprised with the addition of paddle boards this year. In previous years we stayed in the chalet, but this year we stayed in the Beach Condo which has a beautiful view of the mountains of Glacier Park and a pretty fountain nearby. Each suite has a full kitchen. When we arrive we head to the nearby grocery store so that we can cook our own meals allowing us to spend more time enjoying the property. Glacier National Park is visible from the deck and dock, and takes less than an hour to drive there making a great day trip. We have fond memories of our vacation, and cannot wait until we return next year!

Amazing experience!

  • 5 of 5

Could not have been a quieter, more peaceful & scenic destination on Flathead Lake! Wayne and Linda have a fantastic property that provided everything we wanted and needed in a vacation rental. Stepping out our east-facing sliding glass door in the mornings to catch the sunrise over the lake was incredible. The private dock and "beach area" allowed easy access to the crystal clear water. There were even cherry trees and raspberry bushes on the property for us to gather fresh fruit! All in all, you could have paid much more for a resort hotel and gotten your bed made, trash emptied, and fresh towels daily. But you would have had to put up with the noise, the crowds, and the restaurants, too. In our lake condo we didn't have housekeeping services, there was only the quiet of nature, we rarely saw the two other guest couples, and we had a full kitchen to prepare our own meals. Financially it cost us less, but we got SO MUCH MORE for our money. Thank you Wayne and Linda for allowing us to share your beautiful property and enjoy the peace and quiet that Flathead Lake provides.

Same Time Next Year!

  • 5 of 5

The Lake Condo at Flathead Lake Suites is my visit to Paradise each year. I love being in the suite close to the lake so I can hear the lake and open my eyes to sunlight on the water right from my bed first thing each morning. Sitting on the verandah outside the condo I can watch eagles and osprey fly by, and at night there is always an amazing sunset. I leave my windows open at night so I can fall asleep to the sound of waves and the lovely fountain close by. Weather permitting we have all our meals on a splendid deck on the side of the condo surrounded by greenery and the lake below. No restaurant has a better view or more beautiful song birds serenading. Each day my biggest decision is which part of Paradise do I want to sit and have my coffee and read my books. Linda and Wayne are the custodians of Paradise and it is well loved and cared for. My mind is quieted and my soul replenished. I'll visit this Paradise again for my 7th year.
