About the property

2 room, Vintage inspired, Cottage located in the country w/ stunning views.

This gorgeous cottage sleeps 5-6 and is completely self contained. It is located just 23 minutes outside of Waterton National Park. Visitors new the area will take approx. 30 minutes as they tend to drive a bit slower on the gravel roads :) Has stunning mountain and prairie views, and is in the country on 106 acres!

Every bit of the 900 square feet cottage has been professionally and beautifully decorated in a vintage inspired theme.

The natural wildlife that you may see outside your window include: deer, antelope, bison, cow, and horses. You may also be lucky enough to see: ducks, llamas, and pigs on the nearby family farm.

There are two bedrooms, each with a queen bed as well as a double futon in the living room.

The surrounding deck is a perfect spot to picnic and includes a table, chairs and a barbeque.

Cold winter evenings are perfect for bundling up and sitting in front of the lovely fireplace with a glass of hot cocoa or a good book. You may also want to take long walks in the surrounding countryside and just enjoy the magnificent night display of stars and planets!

Warm summer nights are our favorite time to host family dances and cottage guests are always welcome to join us at no additional charge. Although if you prefer not to, there is plenty of quiet and privacy in your secluded hide-away:)

About Rebecca Proffitt

Hi, my name is Rebecca. When I was just 8 years old my father bought a sailboat and my 7 siblings and I as well as my mother sailed around the world. It was this incredible 5 year experience that motivated me to create a place where travelers from around the world could stay and have an incredible experience!

Rebecca Proffitt purchased this cottage in 2014

Why Rebecca Proffitt chose Alberta

3 years ago my sisters and I found a stunning piece of country property and wanted to live there with our kids. Slowly each one of us has been able to build our homes and move out onto this grassy, beautiful place where families dreams come true!

What makes this cottage unique

We chose this property because of it's breathtaking mountain views, it's total seclusion from the world and it's proximity to Waterton National Park.

Guestbook comments from the owner

Dear Eric & Rebecca,

Thank you so much for letting us stay in your lovely cottage. We had such a wonderful experience as we prepared for our upcoming wedding reception. The whole place was delightful.

Cozy and comfortable but a little shabby

  • 3 of 5

This was our first VRBO so did not know quite what to expect. We had everything we needed. Beds were comfortable except for the couch futon. Dryer was not working. Could use a deeper cleaning. Property was on a few miles of very dusty gravel roads. Owner was not on the property but was very friendly and responsive. Very quiet and peaceful.

Waterton/Glacier Park is spectacular and having the cottage allowed us to return to a wonderful shower and healthy dinner after a long day of hiking.

My husband and I stayed for a night for our anniversary. The cottage was even better on arrival than in the pictures we seen. The owners were so very accommodating . The cottage was absolutely a perfect place to unwind and enjoy peacefulness. Would definitely love to keep this as a main spot for a getaway.

Loved our stay in Levitt, Alberta!

  • 5 of 5

Loved our stay at this quaint country cottage. We loved the cute decorating and all the added luxuries like the snuggly blankets. Very peaceful and relaxing for our family from 3 yr olds to 70 year olds. Great hospitality, a superb vacation with Waterton so close.

Great farmhouse/cottage in the real prairie

  • 5 of 5

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.

Owner's Response: Awww, thank you so much for the nice review! Our family loves to meet our new guests and its so fun to host people from around the world. Thank for you stopping by and staying with us, and I'm glad that those friendly kittens didn't bother you :)
