Great farmhouse/cottage in the real prairie
Very clean and organized little farmhouse. The beds were more comfortable than mine at home. The full-size kitchen had everything we needed. It is not a bland hotel experience; it has all the comforts, but with a cute and cottage-like feel. Lots of hot water for 4 people. Very quiet... We didn't even hear cows at night with the windows wide open, and with the windows closed, the wind made no sound at all (this is very impressive for southern Alberta). When we arrived Rebecca and Eric stopped by to greet us. Everyone in the area was very friendly. Bonuses: Incredibly cute kittens came to visit. Great sunsets over the mountains. The wifi was fast and reliable (not guaranteed in the country, but definitely city quality). Cool "general store" a few minutes away in Mountainview driving to Waterton Park. Hawks playing along the country roads. The weather 20 minutes from the park is warmer and sunnier, and there seemed to be no tourists (except us) for miles.
Stunning retreat center, in the country only 23-30 min. from Waterton!!
