The Chateau's beds and bedding are all brand new, the summer of 2016. The house 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 Flat screen TV's located in almost every room including the game room.

In the game room there is a new Brunswick regulation pool table and 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.

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.

Why Todd & Shelly Parge chose Polson

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.

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.

It suits our big family as it has six sizable bedrooms, a well-equipped kitchen, terrific game room and a fenced yard to keep the littlest ones in. Can't beat the sunsets from the deck either. We'll be back!

Gorgeous panoramic views of Polson Bay from the great room, ideal deck for outdoor meals, and plenty of room for everyone. Clean, beautiful, well appointed home and very responsive, hospitable hosts -- couldn't have wished for anything better. Thank you so much!

The view as we first entered the house set a fantastic first impression. The open kitchen/living room was a great place for every one to gather and the kitchen was the most well equipped I have ever seen. The game room was very popular and the back yard and deck were also great places to gather. With people driving in from all over the country, the generous parking area was just what we needed.

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.
