“Fabulous-- Homey & Delightful”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 3, 2011

We spent two nights at Simply the Best. It is well-named. We had a clean, pretty room with a view toward Chief Mountain. Our private bathroom was in a different section of the large, quiet house. Breakfast is "serve yourself", all laid out in the open kitchen overlooking the stunning mountains of Waterton Lakes Natl. Park. Dixie and the rest of her warm, friendly family made us feel completely at home. They were eager to include us in their activities when we were interested and helped us with planning our days.

5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 4, 2007

Staying with a local family really gave us a feel for the area. The bedroom was lovely and the "lady of the house", though a young mom with four kids, took plenty of time to make us feel like special guests. My husband was aghast at the thought of sharing the bathroom with two other couples, but it was no problem and he would be happy to do it again. We enjoyed visiting with the other couples at breakfast and learned more about what was going on in the area. This was our first B&B experience but we'll do it again.

  • Liked — Getting to know the local people
  • Disliked — Had to pay to enter Waterton Park twice
  • Stayed June 2007, traveled as a couple
