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.

Great location, very comfortable and private

  • 5 of 5

The cabin was great, the pond was fantastic, we loved the fire pit area. We loved the idea of getting our own firewood from the forest. I was able to park my 19' camper beside the cabin, which was very nice. The cabin is located literally at the end of the road and we loved that.

Peaceful and Private

  • 4 of 5

The beauty and quiet of Trapper's Cabin was just what we needed. It was a breath of fresh air, the pond, stars at night and mountains in the horizon were a blessing indeed.

Thank you Cheryl!

3km van de Highway, in een oase van rust

  • 4 of 5

Op een kwartier rijden van Waterton Lakes NP vind je deze 'Trappers Cabin', een chalet aan de rand van een pond.

Het huis heeft alle basisvoorzieningen, maar de meerwaarde wordt gepresteerd door de ligging en de rust.

Je kan er gerust met 5 tot 7 personen in slapen; er zijn 2 kleine slaapkamers beneden en slaapmatrassen op de mezzanine (waar het wel warm kan zijn in de zomer).

Wij zagen tijdens ons verblijf tal van watervogels, uilen, ...;

Er ligt ook een kano voor gebruik!

Clean, private and air conditioned!

  • 4 of 5

Cheryl is a great host. We appreciated the air conditioning, especially on the loft. Beds were comfortable and rooms were clean, not dusty. Super location - quiet, private and yet close to Waterton park. Has all the comforts of home. Love the pond and the canoe, although the canoe could use a little upgrading.

Good cabin for the family

The kids enjoyed being able to walk right out the door to kayak. Short drive in to the park.
