Canmore Chalet Rental Photos and Description

Spacious, 2 Bedroom, 2 Bath, Full Kitchen, Free WIFI, AppleTV/Netflix, Pets OK

Looking for your “home away from home” in the heart of the Canmore/Banff/Lake Louise Rocky Mountains for a longer-term stay? Look no further! Our chalet is located in one of Canmore Alberta’s top 10 rated places to stay – and we are proudly & independently owner-operated (est. Jan 2013).

Imagine! A few steps from your car you walk into our pristine, cozy and comfortable Rocky Mountain-themed chalet. Kick back and relax in front of the fire, or head out with your family or companions to our year' round heated outdoor pool and hot tub for a well-deserved soak. Our 900 sq. ft. two-story chalets (maximum of 6 occupants per chalet) have two bedrooms, 2 bathrooms and are fully and comfortably furnished. Our well equipped kitchens come complete with complimentary Keurig coffee makers along with a deluxe selection of KCups. We’ve added slow cooker appliances for added convenience to make those family-friendly comfort meals while you’re out ‘n about enjoying the days. Common area BBQ’s are nestled in our lovely, private common area courtyard and are conveniently steps away from our chalets for your stay-at-home meals as well.

We offer our own private, free, high speed, VERY reliable WIFI and have also have installed Smart/AppleTV/Netflix TV options so you can enjoy hundreds of on-demand movies, TV shows, concerts, WSJ Live, Bloomberg channels for news, and more! You and your family will enjoy and appreciate all the personal touches only an owner would provide.

Situated around our welcoming courtyard, immerse yourself in Canmore's pristine mountain environment. We are within a 10-minute walking distance to downtown Canmore – a wonderful uncomercialized western mountain town that now boasts over 100 unique shops and 75+ gourmet restaurants. There are kilometers of forested walking paths located just outside our doors. You might also want to check out Canmore's new $40M recreation center – Elevation Place – boasting a huge climbing wall, multiple pools, a lazy river, watersides, hot tub, steam room, library, art gallery, drop in fitness/yoga classes and a great work out facility.

The chalets are very close to the BANFF/LAKE LOUISE NATIONAL PARK and KANANASKIS and PETER LOUGHHEED PROVINCIAL PARKS – a year-round recreational and scenic paradise right at your doorstep.

We offer one mountain view chalet and three forest view chalets -- all are exactly the same layout, comfortable & cozy interior furnishings and amenities. Each is only steps away from the pool and hot tub, and are located on the quieter side of the resort.

Guests will also enjoy a complimentary FREE signed copy of the owners best selling 140 page Banff & Canmore guidebook. It will make your 'Out'n About' stays with us in every season are truly memorable. Hope to see you soon!

About Donna Scott

We bought our chalets as vacation property/investments to enjoy with our two daughters while living in Edmonton. We loved Canmore so much, we moved here in 2005. As an avid outdoor family, we've hiked, biked, kayaked, rock-climbed, nordic and downhill skied everywhere throughout our wonderful area -- truly a mountain lovers four season paradise. We know you'll love it too!

Donna Scott purchased this chalet in 2003

Why Donna Scott chose Canmore

This is by far the most unique family friendly property in Canmore. Only 44 townhome-style units comprise this quaint resort and are all wrapped around a beautiful courtyard that houses a huge outdoor pool that is heated year-round and a fabulous 12-person hot tub. We loved the fact that you can drive right up to your chalet - no elevators, long corridors to deal with while unloading all your gear. It is a full 2 storey townhome concept so there is no one tromping around on top of you either - nice and quiet! There are picnic tables and barbecues beside the pool area that are available to use. There is also a common area movie/games room with a 65' flat screen 3D TV equipped with XBox Kinect, 3D movies and ping pong/foos ball tables everyone will enjoy. A true home away from home.

What makes this chalet unique

- best outdoor pool and hot tub in Canmore!

- cozy, comfortable, spacious chalet-style living

- no elevators and long hallways to lug all your stuff, no people living on top of you

- a true home away from home for the whole family

- close to downtown shops, restaurants and the Elevation Place recreation center

- a 2 minute walk to 'The Wandering Elk' pub

- a 5 minute walk away from the renown Onewellnessandspa.com

- Custom concierge & trip planning offered by owner

- Apple & Smart TV's with Netflix movies on demand

- easy access to the Legacy Bike Trail that goes into Banff

- 5 minute walk to the Canmore to Banff 'Roam' bus service - very convenient!

- numerous hiking trails right outside our doors

- Free signed copy of the owners 140 Banff/Canmore guidebook to help plan your stays - priceless!

- Our numerous customer 5 star client reviews speak for themselves

Great Chalet

  • 5 of 5
My wife and I enjoyed our honeymoon stay with Out'N'About! The condo is very clean and very comfortable. It was quiet and we felt settled in at home very quickly. All of the little things are provided, even those little things you would have in your own kitchen at home, but wouldn't think to pack with you on a trip! The BBQ's were clean and efficient (and cooked a great steak!). We enjoyed several hikes and site-seeing destinations from the Out'N'About Guidebook, and found the Chalet conveniently within walking distance of downtown Canmore. My wife loved the Scoop'N Moose iced cream parlor and signature ice cream flavour, and the Rocky Mountain Bagel Company quickly became our favorite morning stop before venturing out for the day. (someone please send us some maple bagels to Winnipeg!) I would absolutely recommend this Condo to all my friends and family. This is a great destination for families, groups of friends, or couples looking to get away.

What a perfect place to stay!

  • 5 of 5
What a perfect place for a vacation in the Rockies. The chalet is in a perfect location for a vacation in the Rockies. Walking distance to amenities and short drive to Banff (20mns). About 1/2 way between Calgary and Lake Louise (1 hour drive to each). The chalet is well maintained, very clean, has everything anyone might need and lots of personal touches from the owner (great job Donna!). It's "home away from home".
We did lots of hiking around (too many trails to name them all), the boys went Mountain Biking at the Nordic Center, we went White Water Rafting (the Canadian Rockies Adventure Center is only 5 minutes walk from the chalet), took the Banff Gondola to the Sulfur Mountain, did the cruise on Lake Minnewanka in Banff. If coming from Jasper, don't miss the Columbia Icefield Glacier and Skywalk on the Icefield Parkway.
I will recommend this chalet to all our relatives, friends and anyone who will ask. Found a great restaurant on our last day: the Iron Goat in Canmore (super friendly, very generous portions and amazing cook).
Thanks again Donna for making our stay so memorable.
We will be back!
The Hughes.

Owner's Response: Thanks so much for your newsy review! So glad you were able to do all those fabulous activities and got to experience the Columbia Icefield skywalk - that is on my to-do list as well. It is wonderful you found our chalet to be a true home away from home. We work very hard for our guests to ensure they are treated to clean, well-appointed and comfortable accommodations.

I will pass along to our friends who own The Iron Goat restaurant your kind remarks -- we have always enjoyed our meals there too!

Remember next time you visit, mention this review for a 5% discount of our published rates and hope to see you soon down the out'n about road.

Sincerely,

Fabulous

  • 5 of 5
As first time visitors to Canada from Scotland and Wales, we couldn't have picked a better chalet. The chalet was superbly equipped, spotlessly clean and with fantastic mountain views. We wanted to do as many hikes as possible in the time we were there and Donna's book was invaluable in pointing out suitable walks. I will certainly recommend this chalet to friends and family and if we come back to Canmore - which I hope we will - this is the chalet we will want to rent.

A Much Needed Getaway

  • 5 of 5
Our young family hadn't had a vacation break from all the hectic aspects of big city living for quite sometime. Donna' s chalet and the Rocky Mountain spendor were the perfect answer for us for an extended stay. Her chalet was super cozy, well-appointed - she even supplied a new fold-'n go crib for our baby. The little ones were thrilled to be able to swim outside, even in the snow! We enjoyed many spring ski days and a fun tubing day up at Mt. Norquay. We hope to come again and stay here next year. Thank you Donna!

Fantastic Canmore Get-a-way!

  • 5 of 5
A wonderful 2-storey mountain chalet with all the comforts and ammenities of home and it's pet friendly too! The chalet is in the perfect location- close to town and the trail systems for all the activities you want to do yet tucked away in a quiet spot for relaxation time as well. Perfect for everyone in the family! The large heated outdoor pool and hot tub were wonderful after a day playing in the mountains. Thanks for the stay!

Owner's Response: Thank you for your kind remarks and we are very glad you enjoyed your time with us last Fall and enjoyed all the great mountain activities while you were here. Although we no longer accept pets in our chalets, we hope that will not keep you both from staying with us again. There are two great doggie or kitty-friendly boarding facilities just minutes away from us where pets can enjoy a wonderful stay while in Canmore too!

A Wonderful Out'n About Stay!!

A Wonderful Out'n About Stay!!
  • 5 of 5
From the moment we arrived at Donna's Mystic Springs chalet, we felt welcome and right at home. Her personal touches were everywhere -- from the Keurig coffee maker with a huge selection of K-Cups, the Apple TV and Netflix movies (many current films & Oscar winners Donna has purchased for our viewing pleasure) as well as the fully stocked amenities, plush pool towels, gourmet equipped kitchen with lots of pots & pans & cooking tools for we liked to eat in most evenings, plush beds, her paintings (so cute) -- everything was perfect! The location is so convenient to everything in Canmore, close to Banff and Lake Louise, and Donna's guidebook helped us decide on so many great things to do. We'd recommend her chalet to anyone.
