You will also enjoy the array of wild flowers on the grassy hills beside the cabin. There is a boat on the pond for your enjoyment.There is also a 2 km hike that can be taken up to Little Beaver Lake near by. Of course Waterton National Park is a must see and offers horse rides, boat rides, restaurants, mountain trails, vast lakes and fantastic wild flowers and wild life to enjoy. The townsite of Waterton is only 20 minutes away.

About Cheryl Davidsen

Hi, I am Cheryl Davidsen and was born and raised in this beautiful area. I am married to Eugene Davidsen and we have a family of five boys, two girls along with 10 grandkids.

I come from a long line of ancestors that settled this Mountain View/Waterton area and I am extremely blessed to have lived here almost all of my life. I am also a musician and song writer and have entertained many audiences in the area with my songs of heritage and legendary characters. If you ever need a few songs around the campfire at the cabin I would be glad to oblige - just give me a call.

Cozy and clean cabin surrounded by peaceful wilderness

  • 5 of 5

The host was extremely accommodating and the cabin was perfect for our group of 9 friends. Close quarters but had everything we needed.

Great quiet secluded spot!!

  • 5 of 5

This place was a perfect option to stay outside of Waterton to avoid the crowds and have our own space! Already missing our morning coffees on the balcony in the morning and star gazing by night.

Quiet retreat

  • 5 of 5

We booked the Trapper's cabin as we were part of a wedding that was held at the main Lodge. The close proximity was great, as we could walk back and forth, but still have some quiet time away from the main hub of activity. The cabin is small, but it worked well for our family. The bathroom has had some renovations to it which is great.

We had a wonderful time.

  • 4 of 5

It says it is good for 10 people but would be very tight for that many. It also states all queen beds but they are actually double beds. A beautiful location and watched a doe and dawn go to the pond for drinks every night. We absolutely enjoyed the peace and quiet. There was the odd game of paintball being played in the woods adjacent to the cabin but this was not much of a problem.

Quite and very close to Waterton National Park

  • 5 of 5

Cheryl is great. The rustic cabin is very inviting. Lots of wildlife graze around the pond. Waterton Glacier is 10 minutes down a very quiet road. Perfect place to unplug from the daily grind.
