Immaculate, 2 Bdrm, 2 Bath, Fabulous Amenities, Mtn View Location, Sleeps 6

Looking for an epic stay in the heart of the Canmore/Banff/Lake Louise Rocky Mountains? Look no further! Our premier south-facing mountain view chalet is located in a small 'n intimate resort just minutes away from downtown Canmore. We are proudly & independently owner-operated -- Out'n About Vacation Chalets was established January 1st, 2012. Our numerous reviews speak for themselves.

Imagine stepping from your car and into our pristine, cozy and comfortable Rocky Mountain-themed chalet. You'll be rewarded with awe-inspiring mountain views from our south facing windows and patio. 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 chalet (maximum of 6 occupants) has two bedrooms, 2 bathrooms and is fully and very comfortably furnished. The well equipped kitchen comes complete with a complimentary Keurig coffee maker along with a selection of K-Cups, and a "Pay it Forward" mini-bar for your enjoyment. We’ve also added a blender for your healthy smoothies to start off the day, and a slow cooker for savoury family-friendly comfort meals simmering while you’re out ‘n about. If you prefer to grill, common area BBQ’s are nestled in our lovely, private common area courtyard steps away from our chalet.

We offer many personal touches to enhance your stay. These include private, free, high speed, VERY reliable WIFI and besides Cable TV, we 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'll appreciate the Banff Park Pass which will save you $25/day per family. We know you'll love it!

Situated around our welcoming courtyard, immerse yourself in Canmore's pristine mountain community -- Canmore residents are listed as some of the happiest people in Canada! Our lovely resort is a 10-minute walk to downtown Canmore – a wonderful uncomercialized western mountain town that now boasts over 100 unique shops and 75+ gourmet restaurants.

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.

What makes this chalet unique

Great place to stay in Canmore

  • 4 of 5

We enjoyed our stay at the Mystic Springs Condo. Our teenage kids loved the separate twin beds in the second bedroom and the unit was extremely clean. The pool, hot tub and BBQ area are right outside the back door, very accessible and well maintained. The location makes it easy to get in and out of Canmore and is a short jaunt to the downtown core. Donna's book provides a great resource for things to do in the town and surrounding area and we can't wait to come back and explore again!

Clean and comfortable

  • 5 of 5

We stayed for 3 nights as a weekend getaway. Our 5 year old grand daughter really enjoyed the pool and the rabbits (except for one minor incident). We would definitely recommend and would absolutely stay again. Donna was awesome ensuring we had everything we needed.

Great unit for families.

  • 5 of 5

Donna's mountain view condo was perfect for our family of 4 and grandma too. The unit was very clean and Donna made sure we had everything we needed. The best part was waking up and being able to enjoy the spectacular view from the master bedroom. The kids loved the pool. Would definitely stay again.

Owner's Response: Thanks kindly for taking the time to review our premier mountain view out'n about vacation chalet. Yes, the mountain views this time of year are spectacular as the days get longer and the sun glimmers off those snow capped peaks! The warmer weather has made our pool are big attraction and I'm happy the grandkids enjoyed that too. If you visit us again, we are adding another mountain view chalet to our stable of Out'n About" chalets this week -- it is just steps away from this one and it will be ready to rent near the end of April -- Yay! We'll look forward to hosting you all again soon, >Donna Scott, Owner Out'n About Vacation Chalets #stayoutnabout #happytrails

Amazing stay !!!

  • 5 of 5

We had such a wonderful stay at this home. It was so well-equipped and clean. Lots of room and we loved the decor. The pool and hot tub were an added bonus and we spent lots of time hanging out there. Beautiful views of the mountains (best we have seen while staying in Canmore) and lots of cute bunnies hopping around. We will be back :)

I choose that location on VRBO and I wasn't disappointed upon our arrival. We were 5 adults and the location was comfy with all amenities to enjoy our stay. We even had a BBQ and used it twice.

Thank you.

Perfect size and location

  • 4 of 5

Property was great. Condo was great, lots of room for our 6 people. Cooked dinners and used the community bbq's. Kitchen had everything you need. Ill never stay in banff again. Canmore is just as close to all ski hills. Only 13 min to dt banff. Canmore has gteat resturants and pubs. Much more affordable.
