About Josh Creason

We have lived in this area for ten years and have been in the tourism industry for the past 15 years. We love Rocky Ridge and the Rocky Mountain so this is the prefect place for us. We have three children Aiden 4, Ella 2 and Evan 2 months. I am sure you will meet them while you are here. They love our guests and will gladly take you on a tour of our gardens and green house. We enjoy the arts and Josh helps out as much as he can at the local theater building set and performing in the shows. That may be another thing that you would love to take in while you are staying with us is the Carriage House Theater. We know you will enjoy Rocky Ridge as much as we do. We look forward to meeting you and making your stay the very best.

Josh Creason purchased this lodge in 2008

Why Josh Creason chose Cardston County

I have always loved Rocky Ridge. My brother bought it over 20 years ago but sold it to buy a lodge in Waterton. Ever since then we have wanted it back. Six years ago we did get it back and we are so happy. It will be your home away from home. Close to the Mountains with fresh air and the sound of nature. We have tried very hard to make this a unique please for people to stay. The Country charm is relaxing and welcoming. It is close to Waterton but you can get away from all the people and enjoy the quite country space. This is why I love it here. I havent found a better place to be.

What makes this lodge unique

I love the space that our home has. The Kitchen is great for entertaining, The large dinning room fit 25 and you can visit while you cook. There are two beautiful fireplaces built by the first owners. The wood details through are amazing. You can enjoy a game of pool or sit and relax in the 6 person hot tub on the deck and enjoy the sun set. The yard is plenty big enough for many activities. The flowers surround the building and bring butterflies and humming birds through out the day. You can enjoy the fire pit as the sun goes down. There are many areas for you to enjoy views and the peace and quite.

Excellent retreat

  • 5 of 5

Our hiking group goes away each year to experience hiking away from Banff/Kananaskis region. We found this home to be clean, quiet, well equipped and very comfortable. The grounds are well kept with lush greenery and abundant flowers-hard to do in this hot dry summer. The host was friendly and provided good customer service. I would refer this property to friends looking for a perfect getaway just outside of WatertonNational Park.

Amazing getaway home!

  • 5 of 5

We stayed in this house for a week, with 10 adults and 5 kids (age 12,3,2,1,baby)

There was fun had by all. The pool/ping pong table and hot tub were a huge hit. The house had everything you could need.

There was so many details for the country home feel! The location was easy to find and reasonably close to tourist places (waterton, frankslide, lundbreck falls.) the yard had lots of space to play sports and we even built a 10ft snow man. The owners were very friendly, easy to deal with and respectful of our space and privacy. I highly recommend this property and would consider staying here again.

Wonderful Property

  • 5 of 5

We had a group of 19 adults stay three nights at this cabin, and it perfectly suited our needs! All of our concerns beforehand, with such are a large group, were easily dealt with by how well set-up the property is: there was a large and well set-up kitchen, a huge amount of space for eating, tons of room for socializing without feeling cramped, and all the sleeping areas (on the upper floor) were in a great location so that people could easily sleep without being disturbed.

The cabin is located close to Waterton National Park and the US border, which allowed for an assortment of day trips of all sorts, and is reasonably close to a grocery store if needed.

Would definitely recommend this cabin for groups of 15-20, and we look forward to hopefully coming back in the future!

Winning Accommodations for a Family Weekend Get-together

  • 5 of 5

We met for a long weekend together, (family of 9 adults and 7 kids, 13 and under)...a rainy May weekend, but in spite of being indoors, the spaciousness of Rocky Ridge kept us from feeling cooped up. The kids loved all the nooks and places to get away and play. We enjoyed the hot tub, the cozy fire in the fireplace, and the pool table/ping pong table. The kitchen had everything we needed and the beds and bedding were comfortable. In between rain showers we were able to drive to Waterton and hike Bears' Hump. We even saw a black bear! It was such a good weekend that everyone was enthusiastic to meet here again next year! Thanks Josh!

Great Property

  • 5 of 5

We stayed at the property for 4 days and 3 nights. 7 adults and 7 kids under the age of 8. Everyone thoroughly enjoyed the house and the surrounding property. We found the location to be a quick and easy drive into Waterton where we spent time each day. The property was fully outfitted with everything we could possibly need. The owners were extremely accommodating and very easy to deal with. We will certainly be back for another visit next year.
