About Donna Scott

We bought two chalets at Mystic Springs as vacation properties/investments to enjoy with our two daughters while living in Edmonton. We loved Canmore so much, we moved here permanently in 2005. As an avid outdoor family, we've hiked, biked, kayaked, rock-climbed, nordic and downhill skied everywhere throughout our wonderful area -- Canmore and Banff are 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 Alberta

This is by far the most unique family friendly property in Canmore. Only 44 townhome-style units comprise this quaint resort and all are 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! Our chalets also have ski lockers to safely store your gear. 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 in a friendly, intimate boutique resort community.

Enjoyed my Stay

  • 5 of 5

I spent 2 weeks here. I thoroughly enjoyed it. Very cosy, comfortable unit.

The kitchen is well equipped for cooking, easy access to the pool and hot tub. I like that I could park right outside the front door.

Wonderful Ski Week at Donna's Place

  • 5 of 5

We had been referred to Donna's chalet by friends of ours and we were very pleased with our choice. The chalet was spotless and thoughtfully decorated with many extra touches. The beds were super comfortable. Our children loved the "Harry Potter" closet that was full of toys. We cooked almost every night and had everything we needed and more.

Just steps from the pool and hot tub, we spent many hours enjoying them after a day on the ski hills. This chalet also has great mountain views which would be lovely to enjoy on the patio in warmer weather. Donna was very helpful and gave us some great ideas on other activities to do during the winter time - one highlight was the secret tobogganing hill just past the Goat Creek parking lot. Fun! We will be back.

Owner's Response: Dear Kennedy Family, We are thrilled you found our chalet to be everything you expected and more. We do have the best cleaners in the valley and I will pass along your comments to them. We continually upgrade our chalets and listen to our clients feedback -- for example, we purchased more dishes and glassware, and upgraded our towels for your stay. We're always adding personal touches and enjoy keeping our clients informed of great things to do during their stays. This chalet will also be getting new flooring very soon! Please thank your friends for their referral and we'll look forward to hosting you all again down the out'n about road! >Donna

Great location

  • 3 of 5

Our stay here was not perfect. After arriving around my young children's bed time (1930) we found that there had been a error made with the cleaning schedule and the condo had not been cleaned after the previous renters. Initially Donna encouraged us to go out for supper for 1.5 - 2 hrs while the cleaning staff came. This was not an option so Donna saved the day and came over herself and cleaned and changed linens.

My family and I did have a wonderful visit and reaffirmed our love of Canmore. The condo was good but basic and had some areas to improve. 1) the bath towels when wet had a musty smell - perhaps washing in vinegar and baking soda is needed. Also perhaps providing a drying rack for wet towels would help prevent future problems 2) Cutlery and dishes quantity could be increased, we found we were constantly doing dishes to have enough for the 6 of us.

Overall I would recommend this condo to those who want somewhere to rest their heads and explore the beautiful area.

Owner's Response: Hi Jillian, Thank you for your helpful comments. We will pay extra attention to our towels and stock up our dishes per your recommendations. I'm so glad you all enjoyed yourselves in our beautiful area after getting settled and now that our new cleaning scheduling software is in place, I'm sure that mistake won't be able to happen again. Next time we guarantee your stay with us will be perfect! Kind regards, >Donna Scott, Owner Out'n About Vacation Chalets

Lovely, cozy townhome

  • 4 of 5

Mystic Springs has a great layout, with this unit 114 on the road which was nice as it allowed for easy access.

Awesome views of the mountains.

Donna was easy to work with and we worked everything online.

The pool was a great bonus to swim laps for myself:)

The reason I didn't give 5 star was due to kitchen amenities were lacking a bit and the neighbors were heard easily through the walls.

They were partying- I wasn't.

It didn't last too late- 11pm.

5 stars to me is perfect- this was close to perfect for the price:)

Thank you Donna.

Oh and easy 1 km pathway walk to downtown Canmore, and I found a great boardwalk to follow for part of the walk- absolutely gorgeous walking.

Surrounded by the magnificent Canadian Rockies, the town of Canmore is one of the most beautiful communities in Canada. Just an hour and 15 minutes from the Calgary International Airport and five minutes from Banff National Park east gate, Canmore offers a spectacular location with unequalled 4 seasons of outdoor recreational opportunities. World class restaurants and unique, original shopping experiences await you in the heart of some of the world's most breathtaking scenery. Neighbouring Kananaskis Country offers a scenic recreation area made up of more than 4,000 square kilometers of mountain parks.

Canmore is an eclectic mix of old wild west hospitality combined with all the modern services amenities you'd expect in a first class resort community. It's residents are friendly - in fact, we've been voted some of the most happy people in Canada. Come visit and see for yourself eh!
