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!

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.
