Hike Glacier National Park in the summer, ski Whitefish Mountain Resort in winter, or just enjoy the stunning scenery as the seasons change. Owning a Whitefish vacation home puts it all at your doorstep. As Whitefish becomes increasingly popular, there’s never been a better time to get into our vacation rental market. Renting your Whitefish vacation home could help you make some additional income while you’re not there and ensures your home stays ready for your next visit.
So, what does it take to start renting your Whitefish home? Taxes on Whitefish vacation rentals include 3 percent Resort Tax in addition to 7 percent Lodging Tax comprised of 4 percent Use Tax and 3 percent Sales Tax. If your home is within Whitefish city limits, zoning restrictions apply, and you’ll also have to acquire a business license and short-term rental permit. If you’re outside of city limits, similar zoning restrictions apply, and a County Public Accommodations License is required.
As residents of Flathead County, our local teams know the Whitefish area well. Our housekeeping, maintenance, and operations staff members provide everything from regular cleans to late-night key lockout support. We’re happy to be there for your guests 24/7, because we want to ensure that each visitor has the best possible visit to our beautiful town.
Work with us, and get unparalleled marketing across top platforms like Airbnb, VRBO, and Booking.com. You can kiss shoulder season goodbye with the dynamic technology we use to set your home’s nightly rates, keeping it booked more often and driving your income year-round.
If you want a dedicated local team and adaptive technology to transform your Whitefish vacation home into a great investment, let’s talk. We’d be happy to share a customized income projection and show you how you could be renting with ease.

Owning a second home shouldn’t be your second job. Vacasa takes care of the details so you can enjoy your home.
In 2009, after assuming responsibility for his wife's family vacation home, our founder Eric Breon struggled to find a property manager capable of providing quality care and a satisfying financial return. This is how Vacasa began—with a vision to deliver a seamless experience for vacation home owners, through innovative technology and local staff, wherever guests want to travel.
In the last decade, thousands of homeowners have joined the Vacasa family, and we now manage more than 26,000 vacation properties around the world. We’d love to help you discover the Vacasa difference: earn more, worry less, and rent with ease.
