The Castle Retreat in Montana near Glacier National Park ...

Located in: Columbia Falls
Ever dream what it would be like to sleep in a "castle"--with tall walls, turret towers, columns, arches and Juliette balconies amid 10 acres of forest? Your views include Whitefish Mountain ski slopes, Blacktail ski area, and towards the famous Glacier National Park. Did you know the Park had over 3 million visitors during last summers' months? Glacier National Park covers over 1 million acres including 762 lakes, over 200 waterfalls and 745 miles of maintained trails. The castle is also close driving distance to the beautiful emerald Flathead Lake.

In the master bedroom in the top turret, 80' above the forest floor one can experience almost 300 degree views of the treetops and some of the Kalispell and Columbia Falls twinkling city lights far below. The ceiling 28 feet above gives a great spacious feeling from the king-sized canopy bed. The remote control fireplace exudes warmth with dancing flames and cozy overstuffed chairs. The spiral staircase rising to the King and Queen's bed chamber is lit by lantern lights. The turret bathroom below features a large garden tub overlooking the forest and animals below. There is also a large double shower room, body spray, and rainforest shower bell. This bathroom level also features a large walk-in closet and double sinks. This bathroom can also be shared with the Prince bedroom on the next lower floor.
The Prince's Bed Chamber below features another king canopy bed and Renaissance-style furniture on the "main" floor of the castle. The bedroom guests may choose to use the large bathroom up the spiral staircase or another large one on the same floor as this bedroom.

The Princess Tower reaches nearly 50' above the forest floor and features a 24' ceiling with skylights to view the moon and stars. This tower also has a Juliette balcony and many windows for breathing in the fresh mountain air and a king sized four poster bed and comfy mattress to ponder the miracles of Montana's spectacular beauty. Strgazing is a must in the dark Montana nights! Every photo you take of the great outdoors seems like a magnificent postcard and ready to be framed for the wall to remind you of a grand adventure !

Another winding staircase spirals down to a large bath area featuring an elegant clawfoot bathtub and double sinks set in marble. There is also a shower and closets across the white/silver marble floor.

The third turret tower houses the "bunkroom" which has its own outside entry off the 1000 square foot second story deck and outside jacuzzi. The young at heart will love being "banished" to this bunkbed chamber and its privacy. Nothing is finer than relaxing in the warmth of the hot tub and pondering the stillness of the woods and the starry night sky!

The spacious castle game room on the main floor includes table games, puzzles, a reading and lounging area for private conversation all while looking out onto the treetops. This room features Roman columns and arches, Venetian plaster walls, African black walnut floors and glass doors leading out to a southern exposure sundeck well above the forest floor.

The kitchen, ready to please its royal guests, has a Bertazzoni 6-burner gas cook range imported from Italy. The SubZero refrigerator is built-in with ice and cold water in the door. The large deep copper sink with the castle crest embossed on its front overlooks the entertainment deck and hot tub. A large center island is great for gathering friends and visiting while preparing food. The 8' granite top dining bar between the kitchen and the large open areas seats three and is well lit with recessed lighting in the overheard arch. An arched passageway off the kitchen leads to the walk-in pantry where guests are welcome to stock their favorite spice, condiments, or foods for your castle adventure. There is also a coffeebar in the chandeliered pantry. A counter juice cooler and wine rack makes your visit even more fun.

The dining room features a china closet, dining table and scrolled dining chairs, Roman columns, Venetian plaster, and travertine floors imported from Italy. 4' high silver candelabras add elegance to perfect moments. The large floor-to-ceiling windows look out onto the white birch forest and wildlife below. Imagine spotting a new fawn with its mother and cousins nearby!

The vestibule between the entry leading into the main castle floor is 48' long and features two 300 pound Old World chandeliers with 48 candlelabra lights glistening on the yellow-gold imported marble floors. There are more columns and bar height chairs with a marble top counter and a lighted arch above.

The living quarters located at the heart of the castle feature yellow-gold marble floors, framed by eight Roman columns and seven arches. The leather furniture welcomes you to relax and make your stay a once-in-a-lifetime memorable experience and enjoy the warmth of the 6 foot wood burning fireplace. The living room area also features a 300 crystal chandelier, inset in a 12' circular ceiling.

Every floor in the castle has radiant floor heating to keep the stone floors comfortably warm and inviting.

Just off the vestibule and entry is a guest bathroom with a marble free-standing sink and antler mirror for the "Non-Royals".

On the main floor is a washer and dryer, ironing board and iron for your laundry needs.

The downstairs Dungeon (ground level) offers another private Montana styled bedroom to gaze at the stars and welcome the sunrise. It has a personal bathroom and shower and is just a few steps from another game room with an exciting air hockey table to challenge everyone.

The dungeon also has air hockey, another visiting/chatting area, and a piano.
We also have portable air mattresses and two roll away twin beds.

The Flathead Valley has much to offer in all four seasons. In the winter, the ski slopes of the Big Mountain at the world-renowned Whitefish Ski Resort (which can be seen from the castle tower, is only a 20 minute drive and you are there. The resort offers 10 lift stations, snowcat adventures, sleigh rides, sledding, snowboarding, fine dining, bars, or simply riding up the lift to view the entire valley below. Often there is live music and special events thoughtout the winter all over the valley. Cross country skiing is very popular. Bring your cold weather clothing and all the other gear can be rented on the mountain or in Whitefish.

Mid winter begins the Whitefish Winter Carnival which is nonstop fun. The entire town is lit up and full of action. There are numerous nightclubs, dancing, and any kind of cuisine you desire in Whitefish or Kalispell or near the Flathead Lake itself.

There is also an ice skating arena and ice fishing nearby.

Just 20 minutes from the castle is the heated Majestic Arena which features equine events including rodeos and concerts and other events.

Of course, Montana, and especially our area is known for outstanding fly fishing, rafting, boating, trail rides, hiking, bicycling, motorcycling, Farmers Markets, outdoor concerts, and artisan exhibits in the warmer months. The beautiful oversized white flowering black locust tree has an unescapable beautiful fragrance encompassing the entire castle knoll in June.
On the grounds of the castle are numerous apple trees and a couple purple plum and ever so tasty cherries. Huckleberries and thimbleberries which only grow wild are ready for picking mid summer also. Huckleberry time brings hikers from everywhere all over the hillsides and mountains in Western Montana. For those less adventurous, they are also sold in season at the Farmers Markets.

The fall colors are spectacular everywhere!

Our mountain, valley, lakes and river views and wildlife are the real memory makers!

Weddings and family reunions/gatherings in any season are spectacular!!

The castle is located in the Flathead Valley near Whitefish, Kalispell, Big Fork, Flathead Lake and just a couple miles from Columbia Falls, and about 19 minutes to Glacier International Airport, perhaps 30 minutes scenic drive to famed Glacier National Park.
