Canada is celebrating her 150th year of Confederation so c'mon up (or over) celebrate with us eh!

Out'n About Chalets is a legally operating vacation rental business established in 2012. *NOTE: The Town of Canmore just announced they are cracking down on illegally run vacation rental businesses in Canmore.

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 per chalet) has two bedrooms, 2 bathrooms and is fully and comfortably furnished. Our well equipped kitchen comes complete with new granite counter tops, complimentary Keurig coffee makers along with a deluxe selection of KCups. We’ve added slow cooker and a blender for added convenience to make those family-friendly comfort meals 'n smoothies. 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.

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. There are kilometers of forested walking paths located just outside our doors.

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 her chalets in 2003. She has sat on the board of directors at Mystic Springs for 8 years and is very active at the property to ensure it is well maintained.

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 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 in a friendly, boutique resort community.

We were two couples staying at the Mystic Springs Chalet at Donna's 2-bedroom Out'n About unit. We found the unit comfortable, with a nice living area, and a nice kitchen and eating area. The bedrooms upstairs consisted of a master bedroom with bathroom and a bedroom with double beds with a hall bathroom. The beds were good. Lighting was good. There was a gas fireplace which we did use a little for cool nights and the heat/ac worked well. We had two minor problems, one in each bathroom, but with a call to and immediate answer from the maintenance guy listed on the refrigerator, the problems were fixed. For the kitchen, we could have used more plates, and the cupboard space for the pots and pans were hard to reach, so a step-stool in the unit would be helpful. The other couple felt their bathroom towels were musty, from maybe sitting in a washing machine too long before being dried. We also thought we could have used a few more bathroom towels than were supplied. Other than that, the unit and the stay were great. And Donna's book, Out'n About guide to Banff and Canmore (free to renters) was a wonderful guide.

Even though we were renting from a private owner, the people at the resort front desk were so friendly - with change for the laundry room which was right across from the unit.

Canmore has a nice town center, with an excellent Save-On-Foods large grocery (didn't like the Safeway), and lots of nice restaurants and bakeries and other retail stores. Easy to walk into the town as well - about 10 or 15 minutes to all the little shops and such.The town is 20 minutes to Banff, 50 minutes to Lake Louise, 50 minutes to Marble Canyon in Kootenay, and an hour and a half to Emerald Lake in Yoho. Perfect for so many day trips.

Yes, we would stay there again - and again!

Good experience

  • 4 of 5

Property was situated with a very nice view of the Rockies. A lot of restaurants near by and unit is well maintained.

Only thing we had problems with was parking especially after dinner, even street parking was a challenge.

Not recommended for families with toddlers due to stairs.

It was a good fit for our family of 4 traveling with teens

  • 4 of 5

It was very helpful having the 2 full sized beds in the 2nd bedroom for my tall teenaged son's. Having 2 full bathrooms was also nice. We appreciated the pool and hot tub after some long hikes and it wasn't crowded. The kitchen was well stocked for a rental, but you will want to bring your own spices, condiments etc. For condo living it was ok for the week we stayed. The unit was clean and as portrayed in the photos.

Overall it was a great convenient place

  • 4 of 5

It was a really clean, and very convenient to everything. You can walk to town in a few minutes. Everything was about a hour drive to see things. Pool was nice.

The only recommendations upgrade cookware, for 6 of us there were not enough towels, but we had brought our own,

As far as the Property, the workout room was a treadmill, and only 1 washer worked, both grills were broken.

Nice Chalet, Great Location

  • 5 of 5

This Chalet was very well equipped for our stay in the area. The two bedrooms upstairs at opposite ends of the hall work out well for a family. The pool is very large as well as the hot tub.
