2 Bedrooms, 1 Bathroom, Large Deck And Yard, Mountain Views
Welcome to our (your) home away from home! My name is Stephanie, and this charming little home is the culmination of my life-long dream--to hold a sliver of property in the hamlet that captured my heart as a child: Mountain View, Alberta. I grew up in this extraordinary place, then left to attend college at BYU in Utah. After graduating, marrying, and starting a family, my husband and I began a lengthy search to secure property in my hometown so that our children could frequently experience the wonders, beauty, and adventure of this most remarkable haven on earth! This year we decided to open up our cozy abode (AKA Sunset Cottage) to other families and individuals who are looking for the perfect place to relax and recoup between all of their adventures and memory-making in the fantastic Waterton Park area.
Owner purchased this Cottage in 2013
Why Owner chose Mountain View
We love the comfortable coziness of our cottage, as well as the privacy of our property. On one side the cottage has an area that is completely sheltered by trees. This is where we spend our evenings laughing and relaxing around the fire pit, where the trees protect us from the wind, and we can enjoy the beauty of the stars.
What makes this Cottage unique
Location, location, location! Really, the location is so ideal. Our home is sheltered by trees, but just across the road is a wonderful country store with several amenities, including--but not limited to--delicious waffle ice-cream cones! Our family loves morning walks (either for ice-cream, or exercise!), afternoon catnaps in the hammock, and starry-night evenings by the campfire. The brand new large deck is the perfect viewing location to watch the frequent breathtaking sunsets, lie on your back and look at the stars, or maybe even catch a glimpse of the occasional Northern Lights (if you are super lucky!). A significant and unique benefit of our vacation home is the combined skillset of our vacation home managers, my brother Brandon and his wife Nicole. Both are known for their kindness and attention to detail. They will do everything in their power to make your stay exactly what you have in mind. Brandon is the mastermind and master-carpenter behind the gorgeous renovations you will see throughout the house. He can do pretty much anything, and is on call should you need anything at all! Nicole's expertise and passion is in the travel and tourism industry. She loves serving people, and helping them discover the wonderful things our area has to offer. Nicole has worked serving tourists in several premier Waterton Park area hotels and restaurants, including The Prince of Wales Hotel, and Waterton Lakes Resort. She has connections to many local businesses, and can offer unique Vacation Packages to our visitors. Nicole is also an avid runner, hiker, cross country skier, adventure-seeker and mother of 3, and can give you first-hand recommendations and information on most of the area's trails and sightseeing.

Fantastic Cottage for Waterton Visit
We really enjoyed our stay in the Sunset Cottage. It is spacious for a family of four and is equipped with everything that you could ever need. The view from the living room is beautiful. It was the perfect home base for our family's visit to Waterton. It was great!
Such a cute, clean cottage!
This cottage is well stocked with everything you could need - even roasting forks for the fire! The cottage is immaculately clean and everything is labeled to make finding things a breeze. I appreciated the coffee and extra supplies throughout the house. The property manager was extremely responsive and helpful. We enjoyed the hammock and the outdoor deck - it was the perfect rural setting for grilling, eating and watching the sunset. The only thing I would recommend is for guests to bring their own drinking water - the water in the cottage has a sight odor and taste to it that we didn’t care for - but I’m sure this is just due to the location of the property. Book a stay at this lovely cottage - you’ll be so happy you did!
Very clean and beautiful place
Amazing experience. Location and cleanliness of the house is very nice. Just fabulous experience. Just like to add one thing only. You can tell to customers in advance about water filter faclity so they can may be bring their own water jug to get filter water. But overall was very good experience.
Overall, this cozy cottage was the perfect place to stay and very convenient to Waterton National Park! It was very clean, beautifully decorated and had all of the amenities that we could have possibly wanted. Great touches by labelling the light switches! Our adult children stayed in the room with the bunk beds. They all had a rough time sleeping on the mattresses which made noise each time they moved in bed and the plastic covering was just too hot. The second night, they ended up sleeping on the pull out couch. Only other suggestion is to put a marker at the end of the driveway. We drove right by it since it is tucked so well in the trees. A little flag or marker at the end of the driveway would have been helpful. We almost tried to get into the neighbors house!!
Nice stay just outside of Waterton
Property is suitable for a family. It’s a nice distance to both Waterton and to Cardston. Kitchen is well stocked with everything that you need! House was neat and tidy.
Conveniently located in the heart of Mountain View, Sunset Cottage is within walking distance to the local convenience store with select groceries, ice-cream, souvenirs, postal office, and gas.
