Our Out'n About chalet is located in a cozy and intimate resort just minutes away from downtown Canmore. And, we've just added new super comfy bedding and new decorating touches to enhance your stay. We are proudly & independently owner-operated providing personal touches that only an owner can provide. Out'n About Chalets was established in January 2012. All Out'n About guests enjoy a free copy of the owners Out'n About self published guidebook that will help you plan out the best stay ever. And, in 2017, entrance into the Banff National Park is FREE for the year!! Canada is celebrating her 150th anniversary of Confederation. So c'mon up (or over) and celebrate with us!

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 chalet (maximum of 6 occupants per chalet) has two bedrooms, 2 bathrooms and is fully and comfortably furnished. Our well equipped kitchen come complete with complimentary Keurig coffee makers along with a deluxe selection of KCups. We've added a slow cooker, rice cooker and a blender for added convenience whilst making those family-friendly comfort meals. There are two common area BBQ’s located in our lovely, private common area courtyard and are conveniently steps away from our chalet for your stay-at-home "grill 'n chill" meals as well.

This chalet has territorial/forest views to the west. It is located on the quieter west side of the property and is our only "small pets considered" (under 25 lbs, house trained, no barking dogs please) chalet. There are numerous beautiful walking trails right outside our door.

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. 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 story 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/Foosball tables everyone will enjoy. A true home away from home in a friendly, boutique resort community.

Guestbook comments from the manager

We've been to Mystic Springs many times over the years. However having you as our Host was great. I love your suggestions of what to do during our stay, even on a raining day. It's the little touches that also make it wonderful. Kid and pet friendly!!

Wonderful chalet for our weekend stay!

  • 4 of 5

We had a very enjoyable weekend get away at this cozy chalet. The kitchen was well equipped, the unit was close to the pool & hot tub - just what we asked for on our skiing weekend.

Very clean and everything we expected

As described. Harry Potter room was cool as we hardly saw the kids as they played in it.

A Wonderful Thanksgiving Getaway!

  • 5 of 5

We booked Donna's chalet for an American Thanksgiving getaway and some early ski season days up at Sunshine Village as we'd heard they had a lot of snow. Donna was terrific - supplied us with everything we needed for a family thanksgiving feast, including casserole dishes and a turkey baster and a gravy boat! Donna also told us where to buy the best turkey in town - thank you!

The chalet itself is cozy and outfitted with lots of personal touches and seasonal decorations which really made it feel like a home away from home. Just steps from the pool and hot tub, we thoroughly enjoyed soaking away sore muscles after a day at the ski hill. It was quiet and very clean. We may just make this a family tradition going forward!

Owner's Response: Hello McGee's, Thank you for letting us know how your family Thanksgiving went -- the snow sure cooperated and glad it got you all in the festive spirit! Please do come up again for another ski holiday - can't beat the US$ savings and our snowfall is expected to be excellent this season. Thanks again for choosing Out'n About Vacation Chalets for your holiday! >Donna Scott, Owner Out'n About Vacation Chalets outnaboutchalets.com

By Far Our Favourite Place to Stay in Canmore!

  • 5 of 5

We have been coming to Canmore with our children for many years, particularly at this resort. We were thrilled to find Donna's owner-operated vacation rentals and booked it out for an early ski weekend getaway. As soon as we entered the chalet we were impressed with how clean it was and Donna's many interior design enhancements made such a difference! The new bedding was lovely and we took advantage of the crock pot and rice cooker for some of our stay at home meals.

As always, the pool and hot tub here are amazing after a long day on the slopes and Donna provides pool noodles for the kids too! We would recommend Donna's chalets to anyone and will be back again for another ski holiday in the New Year.

Thanks Donna,

Jan and clan, Calgary AB

Owner's Response: Hey Jan 'n Clan, Thank you for choosing Out'n About Vacation Chalets for your Canmore visit! I will pass along your comments to our cleaning staff as we do think they are the BEST in the valley. I'm still working on my interior design skills, but am encouraged that you like what we've done. See you all again next year and best of the season, >Donna Scott, Owner Out'n About Vacation Chalets
