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.
Guests’ expectations are getting higher, especially when it comes to cleanliness. Our enhanced professional cleaning program, Vacasa Premium Clean, meets or exceeds CDC guidelines, so guests have extra confidence to rent your home.
Once your home is thoroughly cleaned, we treat hard and soft surfaces throughout the home with a hospital-grade, EPA-approved disinfectant, paying special attention to high-touch surfaces.
Employees are provided with personal protective equipment (gloves and face masks) to wear at all times while visiting homes for maintenance, housekeeping, or any other purpose.
Our upgraded cleaning measures and the additional time our housekeepers spend caring for your home all come at no extra cost to you or your guests.
Your listing will be prominently featured everywhere guests are searching, like Airbnb, Vrbo, and Booking.com. And our digital marketing specialists ensure Vacasa homes are highly visible across search engines, display advertising, social media, and email marketing.
We obsess over delivering a seamless, stress-free vacation for your guests, from booking the right home to stocking the bathroom toiletries. And if your guests have questions, our Customer Experience team is available around the clock to answer all guest phone calls and emails.
We believe in earning your long-term business, not locking you into an ironclad contract. We don't limit your use of your vacation home—so you can enjoy it whenever you like, and know that it'll be sparkling clean and ready for you when you get there. Your home will always be yours.
