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.

This is a beautiful, tidy, well set up home and property. Quiet and peaceful.
This property is so cute and has a great lay out to accommodate many people comfortably, and the property is easy to assess right off the main road. The owner is very responsive to any emails and lovely to deal with.
The kitchen is well stocked ,and the thoughtful extras of coffee, teas, spices and soaps are greatly appreciated.
The beds are very comfortable, and bedding /linens ample.
The only drawback is the smell of the well water, however the owner has provided bottled water.
Overall we would stay again or recommend this property for anyone
Perfect place near the park.
This was a great place to stay while visiting Waterton. Would definitely come back.
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!
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.
