Montana Chalet Rental Photos and Description

Chalet & Condo on private lakefront, weekly Saturday to Saturday, adults only

Flathead Lake Suites weekly Saturday to Saturday rentals for adults only is a large wooded property with 314 feet of private waterfront on Angel Point peninsula. No smoking or pets please. Free amenities include two docks with sitting benches and ladders to climb out of your swim in the lake; free canoeing, row-boating, and stand up paddle boarding; beach pavilion with life jackets; a lake platform with padded lounges and the lake flowing under the lake platform; three benchswings; a sun shelter with swivel rocking chairs; campfire area with free wood and roasting sticks for marshmallows; secluded walking trails with three picturesque bridges; a pond and Roman fountains; 26 "outside rooms" with wrought iron and log benches, and lounge chairs; 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.

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.

The Lake Condo and Beach Condo feature king size beds, full size kitchens, two-room baths with towels and hair dryers, and comfortable sitting areas with TV and WiFi, and padded couches.

Flathead Lake Suites is a paradise high in the Rockies where you can wade on the beach (bring water shoes because it has pebbles); watch the ducks, grebes and loons on Flathead Lake; meander amid the beautiful flowers and trees; relax on the hammocks; 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.

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!

Flathead Lake Suites is adjacent to or near: Glacier National Park, numerous golf courses, Wild Horse Island, 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 Linda and Wayne Muhlestein email: phone 1-406-844-2204

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.

Why Linda and Wayne Muhlestein email: phone 1-406-844-2204 chose Montana

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. 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.

Perfect Vacation

We never wanted to leave!! Words cannot describe the natural beauty of this place. The hosts made you feel comfortable and welcome. The chalet was private, well equipped, and had a fantastic view of the lake. The grounds were like a private park. We will definitely return.

Beach Condo

  • 5 of 5

We just got home from an amazing week at the beach condo, located on Flathead Lake. (The largest fresh water lake west of the Mississippi!) It is a wildlife haven! We enjoyed ourselves tremendously! The weather was very cooperative for our stay. Linda and Wayne were wonderful hosts and have furnished the condo nicely. Great place to go relax and enjoy the many different outdoor 'rooms'!

My husband and I stayed 1 week and wished we could have stayed longer. Wonderful hosts and the property is beautiful. The accommodation was perfect with being private, beautiful views and quiet and peaceful. Wish we were there now.

Experience awesome mountain views on this one-of-a-kind lakefront property on Flathead Lake, Montana

  • 5 of 5

De-stress, decompress and disconnect at the only place we’ve found that truly works to make us feel like we really can get away from it all. Our annual visit over the past 15 years has helped my husband and I find genuine relaxation and achieve a tangible state of well-being. We have been able to reconnect to nature and discover a new level of peace-of-mind.

Our stay in the recently built Chalet was beyond our imaginations. What a joy to wake up every morning to the full views of the mountains and lake, listening to the birds sing a choir of melodies as they flew through the abundance of trees and flowers.

The chalet’s open design features multiple large windows and a balcony overlooking the lake and mountains, so we never missed a sunset or the ever changing landscape of the mountains and lake.

The modern granite kitchen is well equipped and made it possible for us to prepare and enjoy our healthy meals. The living room with rock fireplace was a perfect place for us to read, play games and simply hang out. And it was a treat to use the remote for the gas fireplace. Wayne and Linda did a magnificent job of the tile work on the floors and shower walls so we are always surrounded and connected to our beautiful Earth.

If you take the time to be still you can feel the love, joy and harmony that have gone into this well thought out lakefront property. We healed and rebuilt our strength so we could get back to our full lives – renewed and ready to go!

Thank you Linda and Wayne for creating this oasis for us to enjoy the natural wonders of this world.

We are half way through our stay and definitley don't want to leave this peaceful place; it is beautiful, quiet, private, has gorgeous gardens, and has many special "retreat" areas, and Wayne and Linda are wonderful!! They are warm, welcoming and so friendly! They made us feel at home. They also have a row boat and canoe for guests to use. We were looking for a place to find relaxation, refreshment and renewal for our souls, and our experience and time here has given all of that and so much more!!

A Very Special Place!

  • 5 of 5

The accommodations are 5 star. My wife and I stayed in the Chalet----but any of the condos will provide the same 5 star experience. We came to the Flathead Valley searching for property and it has been hard looking at properties when you are staying at the best. It truly is a very special place and Linda and Wayne are very special people!
