About Donna Scott

We are a young, active family of four (soon to be 5 with baby on the way!) who are anxious to spend more time with our kids in the Rocky Mountains. Home-based in Calgary, we are looking forward to taking advantage of holiday time with our children getting "out'n about" enjoying everything the area has to offer.

Donna Scott purchased this chalet in 2015

Why Donna Scott chose Alberta

This resort was by far the most family-friendly with easy access to our chalet and plenty of room and storage for our needs. The large outdoor pool and hot tub right outside our patio will be used constantly, especially nice after cooler days hiking or during ski season. The proximity to Canmore's downtown shops and restaurants can't be beat. We know you'll love it too.

What makes this chalet unique

Drive right up to your chalet -- no lugging your luggage, groceries etc. down long corridors and waiting for elevators.

Canmore's largest hot tub and pool, open year 'round

Central location with lots of great hiking and walking trails right outside our door.

Managers complimentary Out'n About Guide Book will help visitors pick the best activities suited to their interests and activity levels.

The perfect home away from home!

  • 5 of 5

This was the perfect accommodations for our family. It's clean, cosy, and comfortable. We appreciated all the amenities and really enjoyed the outdoor pool and hot tub. The location is ideal for walking into Canmore and getting on the highway. We referred to your excellent guidebook to plan our daily adventures. It's a wonderful place to come "home" to at the end of a site seeing day!

Great Place to stay

  • 5 of 5

I would recommend staying here and using Home Away. The place was great, clean, comfortable if light bothers you I would suggest bringing a mask as it is light out early and late.

Great place, my family enjoyed staying there

  • 5 of 5

We are very sad to be back home. Donna's home was wonderful and we enjoyed staying there very much. Both my wife and I thought the bed was very comfortable and my 6 year old said the same about his. We very much liked the location and the pool/hot tub outside added a great treat.

I would absolutely recommend staying here. Thank you!

Great pool and great family chalet

  • 5 of 5

We spent most of the winter in this unit and really enjoyed it. The pool and hot tub are great for the kids. The unit is cleaned and has ample storage for gear. We will definitely come back.

Mystic Springs Canmore

  • 5 of 5

We had a terrific Christmas holiday at Mystic Springs in Canmore. All the comforts we could hope for and more. Right outside our door was the large swimming pool. Quite a sight with the steam from both the pool and hot tub. Swimming while the snow was falling was wonderful. The hot tub was the largest I have seen. Our chalet was warm and cozy and the kitchen was easy and convenient to use. The beds were very comfortable as well. The addition of the Christmas tree by the fireplace was a very welcome touch.

We all agreed it was a great and memorable place to spend the holidays. Thank you Donna!

Owner's Response: That is terrific news!! We too have loved to swim and hot tub while the snow is falling. Having the pool so close makes it easy to pop out and enjoy a soak after a busy winters day. We are glad you found our chalet cozy and festively decorated for Christmas. All of our out'n about properties have the same attention to detail and our team is dedicated to providing the best service in the Bow Valley. We'll look forward to hosting you again in 2017! Happy New Year, >Donna Scott & the Out'n About Team
