Flathead Lake House Rental Photos and Description

House, 6 Bedrooms + Other (See Description), 3.5 Baths, (Sleeps 21)

The Chateau is a large, contemporary, fully furnished Flathead Lake Vacation Rental Home. It is located on the very southern end of beautiful Flathead Lake right in the center of the town of Polson, MT.

Airport options are Kalispell, or Missoula and both are equal distance of less than 1 hour from the North or South respectively.

The Chateau features 3 King size beds, 6 Queen Size beds, and 3 hide-a-beds. The large island kitchen is all granite with stainless steel appliances.

There are TV's in every room to relax with after a day at the lake. This includes a 50' Plasma on the main floor. There is also a large LCD flat screen in the master bedroom as well as a flat screen in the wet bar in the game room.

In the game room there is a new Brunswick regulation pool table, a Tournament of Champions Foosball table. Also included is a separate refrigerator to keep your beverages ice cold.

Two separate living rooms allow for enough room for all of your guests.

Relax on the deck while enjoying a cold drink with your loved ones while you smell the bar-b-que and take in the spectacular panoramic views of Flathead lake and of Polson bay.

The Chateau will sleep 21+ people comfortably.

The main floor is one large Living Room and Kitchen combination. This is a 1200 sq ft room with magnificent, unparalleled views. There is a 1/2 bath on this floor as well.

The second floor hosts the over sized Master Suite, a second living room, and 3 additional large bedrooms. There is a full bathroom with a shower/tub combination in addition to the Master Bath which has it's own jetted tub and tiled walk in shower. The master has two separate vanities.

The third floor has two large bedrooms and a bathroom that has a walk in shower.

The Chateau has 4 separate water heaters so there is no problem getting the entire group ready for dinner or a night out .

The proximity of the Chateau to all the amenities that Polson has to offer is fantastic. It is walking distance to the grocery store, the pharmacy, the deli, Ace Hardware, boat and wave runner rentals, casinos, restaurants, daily lake cruises aboard the 'Shadow', downtown Polson and too many others to mention.

The town of Polson seems to always have something going on from Hoopfest, to Hydoplane Boat Racing. We've included a link to the City of Polson's website.

The golf is fantastic, the fishing is great, Glacier Park is 1.5 hours away and is a must see.

Skiing during the winter months is some of the best in North America.

Christmas and New Years at the Chateau offers a superb Winter getaway with world class skiing, snowmobiling, ice fishing and all the winter sports that you can imagine. There is room for all your family and friends and we include the holiday decor with Champagne and Prime Rib Dinner for up to 20 people!

Most importantly this vacation home is set up to handle your large group very nicely. You won't find a nicer home that is as accomodating anywhere.

The location is truly unbeatable from a travelers perspective.

There are many churches from almost every denomination you can think of and 3 of them are 3-4 blocks from the Chateau.

We are updating our calendar as often as we can but dates fill up fast the closer to Spring we get. If your requested date is not currently available please check back as there can be a cancellation or a change in peoples plans. This is especially true with the Christmas Holiday week.

Why Todd Parge chose Flathead Lake

This is truly one of the most beautiful places on the earth. One look at this home and we knew it had our name on it. The conveniences surrounding us constantly amaze us. We don't travel any dirt roads for an hour or more to get to our 'cabin', or back to the store for milk. We literally have it all right here in our own neighborhood.

What makes this house unique

When we are alone we truly enjoy the relaxation that the home and the tranquility that the area offers.

The proximity to all the shopping and restaurants makes entertaining a breeze.

Dragon Boater Invasion!

  • 5 of 5

Our Team of 22 came in to Montana for the annual Dragon Boat festival and had a blast! The Chateau has a great view of the lake and is in walking distance of the grocery store. After a day of racing, our team came back to BBQ, socialize and play in the Games room. There was plenty of space for all of us and Todd was great to deal with.

It was such a beautiful house and was perfect for our group! It had everything we needed to cook, have our dinners, lounge around and watch movies and enjoy our time in Montana. The house was so cute with pictures of the family, magazines, books, I felt just like I was at home.

Perfect Wedding Experience!

  • 5 of 5

Us girls had an amazing time at the Chateau. The house was so spacious, clean and accommodating; even for such a large group! We really enjoyed sitting in the back yardoverlooking the lake and being able to prepare our meals in the beautiful kitchen. It was centrally located so everything we needed was within walking or driving distance. Amazing!!!

Perfect Weekend at the Perfect House!

  • 5 of 5

We rented the Chateau for our wedding weekend and had a big chunk of our friends traveling in stay there. This place was PERFECT! Great condition and so much space! We ended up hosting our rehearsal dinner there when we got rained out of our outdoor venue. The kitchen is well equipped with lots of counter space. I was surprised to see how much space was in each bedroom! And the updates & upgrades really made this house fantastic. And the views!!! Oh.... we just loved every part about this house! It's a must-stay for us! Close to everything and accommodates everyone! I would HIGHLY recommend this house!

Best family reunion location ever

  • 5 of 5

We had a blast! The Chateau has a great view of the busy lake and is in easy walking distance of the grocery store and shops downtown. After an afternoon on the water, our group of 18 came back to BBQ and prepare a gourmet meal in the well-equiped kitchen. The family would congregate in the kitchen, dining area, living room and had plenty of room. The game room was a hit. The rooms were spacious, private and quiet! The thick padded carpet prevented us from hearing people moving around upstairs. We would love to come back again sometime. Todd met us at the house, gave us a tour, and made us feel most welcome. Many thanks!

Perfect location for attending family wedding!

  • 5 of 5

Three generations vacationed at the Chateau to attend a family wedding. All family members enjoyed the spacious, very clean, well-equipped home. Both children and adults enjoyed the game room. Fenced back yard was enjoyed for playing games and eating outdoors. While not lakefront, views of the lake were lovely and we all agreed the location of the Chateau far surpassed those of other renting family members. Would not hesitate to return to the Chateau to vacation in beautiful Montana.

The Chateau is ideally located approx 5 blocks from a large grocery/pharmacy /deli to the East and approximately 7-8 blocks to the west of downtown Polson. Downtown Polson offers shopping, restaurants, bars and casinos as well as several large city parks that border the lake.

There are boat and wave runner rentals as well. We do have a boat slip that is available to rent that is located approx 6-8 blocks away that is secured by a large marina breakwater. The slip will accommodate up to a 21' boat. The slip rents for an additional 150.00 per week.

There are 27 holes of championship golf located less than 1 mile away. Also located on the golf course is the Polson Players Theater and Summer Playhouse.

Take a tour of the lake aboard the 'Shadow'. It is a large tour boat that offers three different cruises daily and docks and departs approx 6 blocks from the house. It is an easy way to get out and see Flathead Lake.

This large contemporary home,The 'Chateau' is unique in that there is only one other 3 story home in the City of Polson. It is large enough to comfortably sleep 21 people in beds and because of its design, it allows people to get away from each other. You can have different gatherings in different parts of the home without any interference. (People can sleep in the bedrooms and at the same time gather on the main floor or the game room without disturbing anyone.) There are several stereos located on the different floors throughout the house and the game room as well. The Chateau has an awesome design both for entertaining as well as just relaxing. There is also a Massage and Chiropractor located right next door.
