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.

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

A great place to stay !

  • 5 of 5

We had a great stay in this lovely house, very comfortable beds, well equipped kitchen and wonderful swimming pool / hot tub. This was the perfect place for our first visit to this part of the world; Canmore was a great place to base ourselves , with easy access to Banff National park which is just stunning. Our visit coincided with a little snow and rain, but the house was lovely and warm, and the pool heated to such a temperature that we loved an early morning and late evening dip to ease the strains of the hikes we enjoyed. Donna is a fantastic host, really going the extra mile to ensure we had a great stay, her book which comes with the house is an easy read and very helpful in finding some of the best hikes. We really enjoyed our time there and even though this property is close to the highway, we had no issues with noise. We hope to return one day, and would happily recommend this lovely home.Thank you Donna for all you did to help with our booking from the UK and to ensure our first visit to Canada was a memorable one.

Owner's Response: Thrilled to hear your first foray into the Canadian Rockies was a stellar experience! Yes, our weather was a bit odd for this time of year, but it is nice to soak in our pool and hot tub after a long day. I'm glad we made you feel at home and my book came in handy to help you navigate all the great things to do. We hope you do return one day. Meantime, tell Will 'n Kate they should stay #outnabout ;-) Cheers, >Donna

Lovely Canmore Chalet

  • 5 of 5

Lovely, home-like chalet. We felt very comfortable there with a 15- month baby. Beautiful scenery everywhere you look and a very easy walk to the centre of town, grocery stores and restaurants. We were back and forth to Banff and Lake Louise several times - very easy trips from Canmore. Would absolutely recommend to others travelling to this area.

Thank you for taking the time to write and recommend us to others who are thinking to travel to our wonderful area. We'll look forward to having you all back again with us soon. (and we just bought two new Graco fold'n go cribs for the wee family travellers :-) Kind regards, >Donna Scott, Owner Out'n About Vacation Chalets
