About the property

Immaculate, 2 Bedroom, 2 Bathroom Chalet, Sleeps Six. Central, Quiet Location.

Looking for your “home away from home” in the heart of the Canmore/Banff/Lake Louise Rocky Mountains for a longer-term stay? Look no further! Our chalet is located in an intimate boutique resort just minutes away from downtown Canmore. And, in 2017 entrance to Banff National Park will be FREE all year! Canada is celebrating her 150th year of Confederation so c'mon up (or over) celebrate with us eh!

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 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.

We offer our own private, free, high speed, VERY reliable WIFI and besides Cable TV, wehave 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 and your family will enjoy and appreciate all the personal touches only an owner would provide. 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. There are kilometers of forested walking paths located just outside our doors. You might also want to check out Canmore's new $40M recreation center – Elevation Place – boasting a huge climbing wall, multiple pools, a lazy river, watersides, hot tub, steam room, library, art gallery, drop in fitness/yoga classes and a great work out facility.

Our chalet is a 15 minute drive to the BANFF/LAKE LOUISE NATIONAL PARK gates and a 20 minute drive over to the KANANASKIS and PETER LOUGHHEED PROVINCIAL PARKS – a year-round recreational and scenic paradise right at your doorstep. We are a 50 minute drive up to spectacular Lake Louise.

In addition to this forest view chalet, we also offer four more chalets at this resort -- all are exactly the same layout, comfortable & cozy interior furnishings and amenities. Each is only steps away from the pool and hot tub, and are located on the quieter sides of the resort. If this chalet is booked, please do consider making an inquiry for one of our other Homeaway listings -- 4041626, 3919150, 3485053 and 4175801.

All guests will enjoy a FREE copy of the owners best selling 140 page Banff & Canmore guidebook. It will make your 'Out'n About' stays with us in every season are truly memorable.

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.

Great girls weekend

  • 4 of 5

Really enjoyed our stay at Chalet 122. Unit was clean and well equipped.

Only downside was that the fireplace did not give off any heat. It turned on but fan didn't work and no heat was generated

Did not meet expectations

  • 2 of 5

I know the Mystic Springs property well and was excited to book into this unit. The reviews were good and from reading them, I was anticipating a cosy unit with extra amenities that would take the experience up a notch. However, the unit was not very clean. I can dismiss 1 or 2 items but after 3 instances, I was then was looking for the dirt. Not the way I want to experience a vacation.

-dirty black sock left by front door

-the perimeter of the double bedded rooms bed frames had numerous items including a small toy, charging unit and various crumbs/dirt etc.

-Had troubles with the TV which required a reset and discovered that behind the main floor TV was very dirty and dusty.

-Food remnants stuck on pots and pans

-Food remnants stuck on cutting board

-Disappointed that there was just a hodge podge of kitchen amenities. Yes, martini shaker but no strainer to drain pasta for example.

-A pay it forward cupboard that had a half bottle of wine. Not sure how old but really should have been recycled

-No dishwasher cleaning pods available and had to contact owner to inquire if they were to be supplied. She did deliver within the day as promised.

We will definitely be back to Mystic Springs as the property, public spaces and pool are amazing however will book directly with the hotel or through another VRBO.

Owner's Response: Hi Sherry, I'm so very sorry you found our chalet was not as clean as you would have liked. I know that can influence a whole stay. We had our cleaners turning over 4 chalets that day between 11AM and 4PM and I think they must have been rushed to finish this one -- hence the crumbs, items and food on some of our dishes. No excuse, but I think that's what might have happened. I will be addressing this with them to ensure this never happens again during our busy holiday season. I hope you'll understand and give us another opportunity to host you all again. I'll make sure a full bottle of wine will be waiting for you! :-) Kind regards, >Donna Scott, Owner Out'n About Vacation Chalets

Condo was clean upon arrival, and comfortably furnished. We made great use of the pool and hot tub after a day of skiing.

Wonderful Girls Pre-Holiday Getaway!

  • 5 of 5

The girls decided on a last minute getaway and Donna's chalet was the perfect spot for it! Upon arrival, we were greeted by a cheery fireplace and lovely Christmas tree. The chalet was very clean and well furnished with everything we needed to cook our meals and enjoy some Netflix movies. Donna had suggested the One Wellness and Spa facility just down the street - it was amazing and we all had a great spa day there.

We all agreed to make a trip to Donna's place a yearly tradition.

Owner's Response: Hi ladies, Sounds like it was a wonderful girls getaway weekend for all! I'll let our friends who own OneWellness Spa know how much you enjoyed yourselves there. I do love their sauna/steam room options and the massages are amazing. We will look forward to having you all back again next year. Best, >Donna Scott, Owner Out'n About Vacation Chalets

A Relaxing Pre-Holiday Getaway

  • 5 of 5

The girls decided to treat themselves to a pre-holiday getaway to Canmore and Donna's chalet was the perfect spot to go. When we arrived, we found the chalet was festively decorated for the season, the tree and fireplace welcomed us and the chalet was very clean and cozy.

Donna had provided us with the great recommendation to treat ourselves to the One Wellness and Spa just down the road for our spa treatments. It was amazing! She also had suggested some great restaurants - we particularly enjoyed Tapas and the new Green Chili Indian restaurant - wonderful food. We will be back again next December if not sooner!
