About Jan Creason

I am not a native to Mountain View area having grown up in Calgary but my husband and I have lived here for the past 18 years. Three of our 5 children also live here and 13 of our 17 grandchildren. I was a Dental Hygienist for 30 years but have been in the hospitality industry for the past 18 years in Waterton and in Mountain View. So you could say I went from cleaning teeth to cleaning toilets!! I hope that your stay at Rocky Mountain Guest House will enable you to get out and explore this part of Southern Alberta and come to love it as much as I do.

Jan Creason purchased this cabin in 2015

What makes this cabin unique

You never get tired of viewing Chief Mountain, weather it be in the early morning, late evening, or seeing the storms surround it's grandeur. You may also enjoy the shaded lawn area, reading a book and looking up to take in the view and bird watching.

Wonderful chalet with a great view of Chief Mountain!

  • 5 of 5

We booked the Chief Mountain Lodge for two nights and enjoyed our stay very much.

The cabin looks out at a beautiful view of Chief Mountain and has a nice deck with a picnic table and chairs that are great for meals on the patio, coffee in the morning, etc. There is also a nice large grass yard to enjoy outdoor games with your family and friends.

The kitchen is fully stocked with everything you need, and the bathrooms have plenty of towels and toiletries. The beds are comfortable, although the bedroom in the loft has no window or ventilation and was too warm for a comfortable sleep during the period of our rental.

The area of Mountain View is very close to Waterton, and we found this to be the perfect rental for a family of six who wanted to drive back and forth to Waterton for hiking, etc.

The area is very quiet, and private.

All in all, a wonderful stay in a lovely setting.

Thanks for a great weekend!

This property was in a lovely location with a wonderful view, well equipped for families & couples.

  • 5 of 5

The owners of this property are on site and are thoughtful and helpful. We were a group of 5 senior women hiking in Waterton National Park. The park was close with a beautiful drive to the park entrance through rolling Alberta ranch land with the mountains in the distance. The lodge was very well equipped and had everything we needed. We noticed that there were lots of games and toys for families. We were outside all the time and never needed the inside extras, or TV. Mountain View is a quiet area away from the crowds, but Waterton was very accessible for hiking and dining. Other members of our hiking group stayed at locations near by managed by the same family and everyone was very pleased. Many thanks to the owners for a wonderful stay. Jocelyn, Victoria BC
