Great place to stay. Just like home from home. Great location and setting. Could not want for more.
Just like home! That's what we aim for for each and every out'n about guest stay. Thanks for confirming we're doing our job and we will look forward to seeing you back with us again soon! Best, >Donna Scott, Owner Out'n About Vacation Chalets
Overall our stay was fantastic – the condos were clean, in great shape and very welcoming. The coffee pods and Banff park parking passes were wonderful touches. In 114 the fleece comforters are amazing and the artwork in the living room is beautiful - all of the personal touches were truly great. I really have nothing but good things to say overall, we will definitely be back!
We aim to please! Thanks so much for your comments -- our cleaners pride themselves on being the best in the Bow Valley so they'll be thrilled to read this. We keep adding personal touches and upgrades to our chalets to ensure every stay is unique. Thank you too for the comments about my paintings. I'm still actively painting when I have time :-) Looking forward to having you all back. Sincerely, >Donna Scott, Owner Out'n About Vacation Chalets
We, an extended family of five, really enjoyed the decor and slept well in the comfortable beds. The first night the pool was not available, but was by morning and the kids loved it, as well as the large hot tub. The kids loved the cupboard under the stairs. We were attending a wedding, so were in and out frequently and easily. Everything we needed was there, and more. Would certainly come back again.
It was great. Perfect for what we needed when there for the weekend with our kids. The condo is very comfortable (great beds!) and well equipped. Our kids loved the pool and hot tub!
Thank you for submitting a review and so glad you all enjoyed yourselves despite the wintery weather! The pool and hot tub are wonderful anytime of year so hope you all come back and stay with us again to enjoy what is shaping up to be an amazing ski/snowboarding season ahead!! Best, >Donna Scott, Owner Out'n About Vacation Chalets
Our family stayed at the Out'n About chalet recently and had a wonderful time. We found Donna's guide very useful in terms of planning things to do. Our children absolutely loved their accommodations for our two night stay. We found everything very easy and accessible, the chalet had everything we needed and Donna was very accommodating with our check in and check out. We look forward to returning and kids look forward to their annual trip to Canmore. Thanks The Nemecek Family
Hello and thank you for your review! We sure enjoyed hosting you all and so glad my guide book came in handy to find activities that all could enjoy, young and old. Look forward to having you stay with us again down the out'n about road! Kindly, >Donna Scott, Owner Out'n About Vacation Chalets
We had a group of friends in Canmore for a competition. The condo was nice, comfortable & clean. Had everything we needed, loved the hottub and how close it was. Would definitely stay again !
Thanks and we'll look forward to seeing you all again with us soon. Hope the competition went well -- it was a lovely weekend with all the fresh snow up on the mountain peaks. Until next time... Cheers, >Donna Scott, Owner Out'n About Vacation Chalets
My wife and I stayed for 4 nights while checking out the surrounding area. Canmore is a great location, minutes from Banff with all the shopping and dining you need at much better prices. The chalet was very nice. Reasonably well equipped, very comfortable and clean. The park pass and Donna's "Out'n About" guide book were a nice bonus. Excellent views and the pool and hot tub are a great plus. We would definitely come back and hope to do so in the near future.
Hey, thank you so much for taking time to review our out'n about chalet! Agreed, the location can't be beat as we're so close to everything in Canmore and minutes drive to Banff. We do try to keep our prices below that of the hotel management company and other like properties but we do not sacrifice on comfort, cleanliness and amenities. Glad our complimentary Park Pass and my guide book were an added bonus for you! We'll look forward to hosting you again down the out'n about road, >Donna
Really enjoyed our stay at Donna and Geoffs chalet at Mystic Springs! So perfect to come back to after a great day in the Canmore area. Super clean, very well appointed. Pool and huge hot tub are a bonus. The linens were luxurious - a big priority for me. Donnas own published guidebook was so helpful! There's so much to do in Canmore that we have to come back! Thanks Donna and Geoff!!
Thanks a ton for your kind remarks about our chalet! We do take a lot of pride in keeping our chalets immaculate and well appointed so guests truly feel pampered and special during their stays. Glad the guidebook came in handy and we'll look forward to seeing you all again down the out'n about road!! Cheers, >Donna & Geoff
Thanx, we enjoyed the view, the park pass and the guide book. The extras are a nice touch. Your description and photos are exactly what turned out to be. Will gladly come back.
Thank you -- glad our chalet and the Canmore Rockies were exactly what you expected! We do hope that folks find the added extras make their stays personable and like a home away from home. We welcome you back anytime!! Kind regards, Donna Scott, Owner Oat'n About Vacation Chalets
Lovely place, great location. You can access it right from the street. We loved the pool and the hot tub. It's close to downtown. It has a great sofa bed, very spacious. The cleanliness of the place was disappointing, the dishes had food residue from the dishwasher that needs a big deep cleaning. Sofa bed had lost of debris when we opened it. There was a sign about the use of a stem cleaner, however I don't think the guest should expected to deep clean the place if you are on holidays. Apart from that we had a great time.
We enjoyed our stay at the Mystic Springs Condo. Our teenage kids loved the separate twin beds in the second bedroom and the unit was extremely clean. The pool, hot tub and BBQ area are right outside the back door, very accessible and well maintained. The location makes it easy to get in and out of Canmore and is a short jaunt to the downtown core. Donna's book provides a great resource for things to do in the town and surrounding area and we can't wait to come back and explore again!
We stayed for 3 nights as a weekend getaway. Our 5 year old grand daughter really enjoyed the pool and the rabbits (except for one minor incident). We would definitely recommend and would absolutely stay again. Donna was awesome ensuring we had everything we needed.
So kind of you to write about your out'n about stay -- We do love the rabbits but the town isn't as enamoured by them :-( Appreciate your recommendation to our future guests and we'll look forward to hosting you again! Kind regards, >Donna Scott, Owner Out'n About Vacation Chalets Canmore, Alberta #happytrails
Donna's mountain view condo was perfect for our family of 4 and grandma too. The unit was very clean and Donna made sure we had everything we needed. The best part was waking up and being able to enjoy the spectacular view from the master bedroom. The kids loved the pool. Would definitely stay again.
Thanks kindly for taking the time to review our premier mountain view out'n about vacation chalet. Yes, the mountain views this time of year are spectacular as the days get longer and the sun glimmers off those snow capped peaks! The warmer weather has made our pool are big attraction and I'm happy the grandkids enjoyed that too. If you visit us again, we are adding another mountain view chalet to our stable of Out'n About" chalets this week -- it is just steps away from this one and it will be ready to rent near the end of April -- Yay! We'll look forward to hosting you all again soon, >Donna Scott, Owner Out'n About Vacation Chalets #stayoutnabout #happytrails
We had such a wonderful stay at this home. It was so well-equipped and clean. Lots of room and we loved the decor. The pool and hot tub were an added bonus and we spent lots of time hanging out there. Beautiful views of the mountains (best we have seen while staying in Canmore) and lots of cute bunnies hopping around. We will be back :)
Thanks kindly for your review! Yes, the Canmore bunnies hopping around our resort are awfully cute -- next time take one home! :-) So glad you enjoyed our mountain view chalet and we'll look forward to hosting you all again soon! >Donna Scott, Owner Out'n About Vacation Chalets Canmore, Alberta
I choose that location on VRBO and I wasn't disappointed upon our arrival. We were 5 adults and the location was comfy with all amenities to enjoy our stay. We even had a BBQ and used it twice. Thank you.
Thanks Marc for taking time out to write about your out'n about stay! So glad everyone was comfortable and enjoyed themselves -- it is nice to come home to a BBQ meal 'n hot tub at the end of a busy day :-) Hope we see you again soon. >Donna Scott, Owner Out'n About Vacation Chalets Canmore, Alberta
Property was great. Condo was great, lots of room for our 6 people. Cooked dinners and used the community bbq's. Kitchen had everything you need. Ill never stay in banff again. Canmore is just as close to all ski hills. Only 13 min to dt banff. Canmore has gteat resturants and pubs. Much more affordable.
Thank you very much for your kind remarks -- we have to agree, staying in Canmore over Banff has it's charm. Our town has over 75 gourmet restaurants and pubs as well as a wonderful variety of quaint and eclectic mountain shops and galleries to enhance your stay. Our unique brand of mountain hospitality can't be beat! So glad the chalet met your needs and we'll hope to see you back with us again soon. Sincerely, Donna Scott, Owner Out'n About Vacation Chalets Canmore, Alberta
The condo is very comfortable and in a great location. We appreciated the Banff Park Pass to be included in the price, as well as Donna's guide book about the area with lots of useful information. Check in was easy and Donna was easy to reach. We would definitely go again.
Hey, thanks for just making my day! Receiving reviews like this, always reconfirms why I love this business so much. It's wonderful to hear folks leverage my book and our complimentary Park Pass to get out'n about and enjoy so much of what our area has to offer. I'm glad the stay went smoothly for you and we'll look forward to hosting you back with us again sometime down the out'n about road. Sincerely, Donna Scott, Owner Out'n About Vacation Chalets Canmore, Alberta
The five of us enjoyed returning to this condo following our days of Nordic skiing in the surrounding area. The hot tub was a wonderful touch to help sooth our sore muscles. The condo was well laid out, and the welcome tin of cookies were a hit. Comfortable beds, a well appointed kitchen, clear instructions, clean...
Thank you very much for taking the time to review our chalet! The nordic skiing is awesome given all the early snow we've had. Glad the hot tub soothed those muscles after your days out'n about. Hope to have you back again with us soon! Sincerely, >Donna Scott, Owner Out'n About Vacation Chalets
We spent three amazing days/nights at Donna's beautiful condo. Aside from the pool & hot tub being closed for maintenance, a wonderful time was had by all. Travelled with 2 adults, 9yr old son, 14, 16 & 17 year old daughters. Condo was the perfect size, even with only two bathrooms between 6 people. Scenery was breath taking! Banff Park Pass was perfect for our daily ventures! Sad the Gondola was closed, but still had a great time exploring the town and surrounding areas. After long days of exploring, was perfect to come back to home cooked dinners, movies & the fireplace. Kids were all asking to stay longer ~ we will DEFINITELY be returning! (for much longer than 3 nights next time) Thank you Donna for providing such fantastic accommodations! The Heaton & Earl Clans :)
Thank you Heaton and Earl Clans! Your comments are vastly appreciated and so glad our complimentary Banff Park Pass came in handy to explore the area. The mountain scenery is so lovely this time of year with all the snow - can't be beat. It is nice to come home and kick back 'n relax with a home cooked meal and our Apple TV/Netflix movie and TV options - no running to a video rental store :-) Again, sorry our pool and hot tub were closed for annual maintenance. They should be up and running by the end of the week (Nov 20th). Your future business and a longer stay will be anticipated! Cheers, >Donna Scott, Owner Out'n About Vacation Chalets Canmore, Alberta
My family and I had a wonderful stay at Donnas apartment. Very spacious and comfortable. Every creature comfort thought of. Excellent guidebook to local hikes and activities written by Donna made available to us. Enjoyed dips in heated pool. Spectacular scenery. Could have stayed a month !
And, we hope next time you do stay with us for a month!! Thanks very much for your comments. We do so appreciate feedback from all of our guests. I'm always glad to hear my guidebook helps everyone pick the right activities during their stays. Happy trails, >Donna Scott, Owner Out'n About Vacation Chalets Canmore, Alberta
I am quite certain all the words to describe this area have all been used in prior reviews. ..breathtaking, stunning, amazing, magnificent. "Wow" was the one we used most frequently!! Around every bend in the road was another beautiful scene. We were impressed with our home-away-from home. The beds were amazingly comfortable and the kitchen was well supplied. We did notice there were no kitchen towels (we substituted a hand towel) and we would have preferred a 'regular' coffeemaker over the Keurig. Thanks again for the lovely accommodations!!
So glad you were impressed with our chalet during your stay - yes, the area is pretty awesome, especially when we start getting a wee bit of snow up on those mountain peaks to set them off against blue skies. If you come and visit again, do mention the coffee maker - we'd be happy to pop down with one during your stay :-) Thanks for your review! Kind regards, >Donna Scott, Owner Out'n About Vacation Chalets Canmore, Alberta
Had 9 great nights at Donna's. No problem with towels (read other reviews), no problem with parking, you just park where you can and its all good. There where 5 of us and I didn't find the unit to small, no problem at all with 3 kids and 2 adults. There is a restaurant and theatre over the road but with the double glazing you hardly hear a thing. Donna was great through the build up to the trip accommodating us all the way, answering any questions we had. Easy to get a hold of her by email or phone. The surrounding area is fantastic with many great outdoor things to see and do, she has a great guide book so no research required, all the hard work is done. Then at the end of the day grill up some dinner and chill out in the hot tub. We thoroughly enjoyed our stay and would recommend Donnas to other travellers.
Thank you so much Steven! We were so happy to host you and your family coming all the way from New Zealand - it's a long way to travel and I am glad everything met your approval at our Out'n About Chalet at Mystic Springs. We will appreciate any referrals that come our way from down under! One day, we will be visiting your neck of the woods as we hear it's stunning too. Best regards, Donna Owner, Out'n About Vacation Chalets Canmore, Alberta
Overall, we enjoyed our stay in Canmore. The property was clean and well-maintained. The owner was very easy to reach and the booking, checking in and out process was simple and convenient. The main negative for us was the "motel" feel of the property and size of the chalet. We had 4 people in the chalet (2 adults and 2 children) and do not feel that more could fit comfortably for an entire week! The pictures are a little deceiving in the actual size of the main living area. Once again, fine for a family of 4 but not more. Our other MAIN complaint was how cheap the towels were that they provided. They were rough and pretty much needed to be cleaned every other day. The last thing I wanted to do was wash towels in the evening after spending the day hiking and sight-seeing. The other complaint was the view from the "patio" was a busy road with a restaurant and theatre (which was loud on the weekend but not during the week). We were very active on our trip and enjoyed many of the restaurants in Canmore and Banff. Our family loved going to the Columbia Icefield and going to Lake Louise. Overall, this chalet worked for us but unfortunately not exactly what we hoped for.
Thank you for your remarks Kathy. We do strive to keep our chalets clean and well maintained and I'm glad your stay included trips out to the amazing Columbia Icefields and beautiful Lake Louise - I hope my book helped you choose these activities. Will take note about our towel quality to ensure future guests are happy with their towels! Kind regards, >Donna Scott, Owner Out'n About Vacation Chalets Canmore, Alberta
This is nice clean two bedroom townhouse that sleeps six. It was our base for a great week in the Canmore and Banff area. Overall, the townhouse property is in good shape and was well kept. The hot tub, pool and BBQ were very handy to the unit and got well used. I have removed one star in reference to the complex that the unit is in. Parking was very difficult at times. There are not enough spots for all the units and you have to jockey for parking on the road. The laundry facilities are shared and there were issues with the locks to the area that made getting access difficult. Overall, I think this is good value for money and I would rent this unit again for a future trip to Canmore.
Thanks John for taking the time to review our chalet at Mystic Springs. We strive to make sure our chalets are immaculate and I am glad you found the pool and hot tub and BBQ areas convenient to use just steps away from our chalet. The lock to the laundry area has been repaired - thanks for bringing that to my attention. We hope you do come and spend another great holiday with Out'n About Vacation Chalets! Kind regards, >Donna Owner, Out'n About Vacation Chalets Canmore, Alberta
We spent 5 happy days in this home away from home. Donna's 'out and About' book directed us to the beautiful Grassi Lake hike - a wonder and a highlight! Do it! Canmore made a much calmer home base than Banff and provided a wonderful Canada day parade as a bonus. My daughter deemed the pull out couch comfortable and the rest of us slept well. Well equipped and well run - thank you Donna!
Thanks kindly Lindsay! I am so glad our efforts to make a "home away from home" are appreciated. Agreed, Canmore is a less touristy/hectic place than Banff and is more centrally located for excursions into Kananaskis, Canmore/Spray Lakes Provincial Parks and Banff National Park/Lake Louise. Grassi Lakes is one of many great hikes out of my book and I hope you can make it back to enjoy some more I've highlighted sometime down the out'n about road. Cheers, >Donna Owner, Out'n About Vacation Chalets
The Mystic Springs condo was clean and had little extras (tea/coffee and shampoo/conditioner) that were appreciated. There were four of us and we enjoyed the coziness and size of the accommodation. The beds were comfortable and rooms bright. It was nice to have two bathrooms. The fireplace was lovely and provided nice warmth to the sitting area. The pool and hot tub were a bonus! And the owners were only a phone call away and ready to come by if we needed anything. It was perfect for our reunion get away in the mountains!
Thank you kindly Erica. We do pride ourselves in making sure our chalets at Mystic Springs are clean 'n pristine! We also try to take very good care of our guests and being a phone call and 2 minute drive away has proved to be very helpful when guests need extra amenities, or there is anything malfunctioning in our chalets. Glad you enjoyed yourselves and we hope you come back and stay with us again for that next reunion! Sincerely, Donna Scott, Owner Out'n About Vacation Chalets Mystic Springs & Fire Mountain Lodge Canmore, Alberta
This condo was perfect for our group! We had six people stay there very comfortably. The location was perfect, close to downtown, grocery stores, and the highway, perfect for getting out and heading up to the mountains in the morning. It has spectacular mountain views and the heated outdoor pool and hot tub were perfect after a day on the slopes. The kitchen was convenient for preparing our own food. The flexible check-out time made leaving less stressful, and checking in was a breeze. The condo was very clean and cosy. A park pass was provided, as well as Donna's excellent book on hiking triails in the area, which made us want to come back in the summer to be able to take advantage of them! This place was overall perfect for our ski getaway!
Thank you so much for your review of our Out'n About chalet. It's wonderful to know our guests have enjoyed their stays and we'll hope to see you all back in the summer for some more exceptional experiences in our scenic areas! Sincere best wishes, >Donna Scott, Owner Out'n About Vacation Chalets
perfect for our needs, great location for canmore and for getting out and about, the property was clean had everything we needed, all in all a wonderful place place to stay
Many thanks for your kind review Trevor. We are glad you found it clean, comfortable and equipped with everything you needed to make your stay enjoyable! It was a pleasure hosting you and hope we see you back with us again down the out'n about road. Sincerely, >Donna Scott, Owner Out'n About Vacation Chalets Canmore, Alberta CANADA
Our family stayed at this Mystic Springs chalet at the beginning of September for one week and what a week we had! In the months leading up to our visit, Donna was only too happy to answer all our questions to help us prepare for our trip and when we arrived everything was just perfect. We even had snow! Not sure how you pulled that one off Donna, but what a treat!!! :D Donna also provided a guide book that she's written herself giving first time visitors (like ourselves) the inside scoop on all the beautiful lakes, hiking trails, and good places to eat in the local area. When the weather closed in we got a lovely email from Donna asking if we were okay and offering a few suggestions on some indoor activities. It was much appreciated. The chalet itself is lovely! It was clean, cosy and very well equipped, including super fast WIFI and it was an absolute pleasure to come home at the end of the day and curl up in front of that fire! So to sum it up... the location is perfect. The area is incredibly beautiful and you wouldn't find a kinder and more accommodating host anywhere on the planet. We had a wonderful time and would definitely stay here again!
Wow - I'm so overwhelmed with your comments - you have made my year! You certainly got the whole range of weather (ho ho ho), proof that it really can snow any month of the year in Canmore. I was thrilled though, since from Australia, you didn't mind as snow down under is pretty rare - ha ha! I'm always pleased to also hear my complimentary book is still offering guests a ton of value add when it comes to planning out a stay here. We're alway happy to help with additional information and updates. Thank you so much and we hope one day we can visit your wonderful country. Sincerely, >Donna & family
My wife and I enjoyed our honeymoon stay with Out'N'About! The condo is very clean and very comfortable. It was quiet and we felt settled in at home very quickly. All of the little things are provided, even those little things you would have in your own kitchen at home, but wouldn't think to pack with you on a trip! The BBQ's were clean and efficient (and cooked a great steak!). We enjoyed several hikes and site-seeing destinations from the Out'N'About Guidebook, and found the Chalet conveniently within walking distance of downtown Canmore. My wife loved the Scoop'N Moose iced cream parlor and signature ice cream flavour, and the Rocky Mountain Bagel Company quickly became our favorite morning stop before venturing out for the day. (someone please send us some maple bagels to Winnipeg!) I would absolutely recommend this Condo to all my friends and family. This is a great destination for families, groups of friends, or couples looking to get away.
Thank you so much Scott!! We can't tell you how happy we are to have been a part of your honeymoon experience and are so glad your stay will remain in your fond memories of that super special time in your lives together. Hope we see you back every anniversary hereafter! :-) Warm regards, >Donna Scott, Owner Out'n About Vacation Chalets
What a perfect place for a vacation in the Rockies. The chalet is in a perfect location for a vacation in the Rockies. Walking distance to amenities and short drive to Banff (20mns). About 1/2 way between Calgary and Lake Louise (1 hour drive to each). The chalet is well maintained, very clean, has everything anyone might need and lots of personal touches from the owner (great job Donna!). It's "home away from home". We did lots of hiking around (too many trails to name them all), the boys went Mountain Biking at the Nordic Center, we went White Water Rafting (the Canadian Rockies Adventure Center is only 5 minutes walk from the chalet), took the Banff Gondola to the Sulfur Mountain, did the cruise on Lake Minnewanka in Banff. If coming from Jasper, don't miss the Columbia Icefield Glacier and Skywalk on the Icefield Parkway. I will recommend this chalet to all our relatives, friends and anyone who will ask. Found a great restaurant on our last day: the Iron Goat in Canmore (super friendly, very generous portions and amazing cook). Thanks again Donna for making our stay so memorable. We will be back! The Hughes.
Thanks so much for your newsy review! So glad you were able to do all those fabulous activities and got to experience the Columbia Icefield skywalk - that is on my to-do list as well. It is wonderful you found our chalet to be a true home away from home. We work very hard for our guests to ensure they are treated to clean, well-appointed and comfortable accommodations. I will pass along to our friends who own The Iron Goat restaurant your kind remarks -- we have always enjoyed our meals there too! Remember next time you visit, mention this review for a 5% discount of our published rates and hope to see you soon down the out'n about road. Sincerely, >Donna Scott, Owner Out'n About Vacation Chalets
As first time visitors to Canada from Scotland and Wales, we couldn't have picked a better chalet. The chalet was superbly equipped, spotlessly clean and with fantastic mountain views. We wanted to do as many hikes as possible in the time we were there and Donna's book was invaluable in pointing out suitable walks. I will certainly recommend this chalet to friends and family and if we come back to Canmore - which I hope we will - this is the chalet we will want to rent.
Thank you so much! It is so great to hear from you and we appreciate any referrals you might pass along to your friends in Scotland and Wales!! Hope to see you again, whether taking the low road or the high out'n about roads :-) Cha Gheill, >Donna
Our young family hadn't had a vacation break from all the hectic aspects of big city living for quite sometime. Donna' s chalet and the Rocky Mountain spendor were the perfect answer for us for an extended stay. Her chalet was super cozy, well-appointed - she even supplied a new fold-'n go crib for our baby. The little ones were thrilled to be able to swim outside, even in the snow! We enjoyed many spring ski days and a fun tubing day up at Mt. Norquay. We hope to come again and stay here next year. Thank you Donna!
Thank you Anne - it was a pleasure hosting you and your family for this much needed R&R hiatus from busy city living. Please do come again and bring some friends out from Ottawa with you next time! :-) Kind regards, >Donna Scott, Owner Out'n About Vacation Chalets
From the moment we arrived at Donna's Mystic Springs chalet, we felt welcome and right at home. Her personal touches were everywhere -- from the Keurig coffee maker with a huge selection of K-Cups, the Apple TV and Netflix movies (many current films & Oscar winners Donna has purchased for our viewing pleasure) as well as the fully stocked amenities, plush pool towels, gourmet equipped kitchen with lots of pots & pans & cooking tools for we liked to eat in most evenings, plush beds, her paintings (so cute) -- everything was perfect! The location is so convenient to everything in Canmore, close to Banff and Lake Louise, and Donna's guidebook helped us decide on so many great things to do. We'd recommend her chalet to anyone.
Hey Carol -- really awesome review! It makes all our hard work and efforts to customize our guests stays all the more worthwhile. It's wonderful to know and appreciated so much. We will look forward to hosting you all again. > Cheers from Donna and The Out'n About Team
A wonderful 2-storey mountain chalet with all the comforts and ammenities of home and it's pet friendly too! The chalet is in the perfect location- close to town and the trail systems for all the activities you want to do yet tucked away in a quiet spot for relaxation time as well. Perfect for everyone in the family! The large heated outdoor pool and hot tub were wonderful after a day playing in the mountains. Thanks for the stay!
Thank you for your kind remarks and we are very glad you enjoyed your time with us last Fall and enjoyed all the great mountain activities while you were here. Although we no longer accept pets in our chalets, we hope that will not keep you both from staying with us again. There are two great doggie or kitty-friendly boarding facilities just minutes away from us where pets can enjoy a wonderful stay while in Canmore too! Kind regards, >The Out'n About Team
Myself and 5 friends stayed at Mystic Springs on the May long weekend. The condo was pristine, well equipped and conveniently located. The pool and hot tub were nice to relax and also nice for keeping the kiddies busy. Everything we needed was at our finger tips from kitchen supplies to iPod charger to beach towels for the pool and extra pillows. We had lots of space and the beds were comfortable. The owners were relaxed and accommodating allowing us a late check out. Two thumbs up, this is my second time dealing with this company and I will be back.
Thank you for your kind remarks and we were so happy you chose to stay with us again for your special long weekend wedding celebrations. Hope to see you back with us soon!! >The Out'n About Team
We had the privilege this winter to truly enjoy mountain living! Staying at Mystic Springs for the duration of the ski program (10 weeks) was fanstastic! The condo had everything we needed to just be able to sit back relax and enjoy mountain life and everything it has to offer. Our family enjoyed having the 2 storey with the bedrooms upstairs to provide those quiet moments we needed after our busy days skiing or any other outdoor adventures, The main living area and kitchen were spacious enough to relax in and well equipped to cook a warm family meal. The outdoor pool and hot tub were a big hit with our daughters, even in -30 weather!! Even our furry four-legged family member enjoyed the great trails and trees just steps from our condo. My husband really liked having the ski locker outside your door that made getting things dry for the next day of skiing that much quicker. The location to town is great as well, you can walk to the new Elevation Place Recreation Centre or into town for some shopping or a bite to eat.The property manager was always easy to get a hold of if we needed her, not that we really did, since the place had everything we needed to enjoy and create some life long family memories. It made something for us all to look forward to at the end of a busy work week to head out to the condo. We would highly recommend staying at the condos in Mystic Springs, they are just like having a home away from home!! Come out and see for yourself, you won't regret it!!! Thank you!
Thank you for your kind words and we are happy everything worked out for your family to enjoy the ski season of 2014 in comfort and enjoy the many conveniences our property and chalet has to offer. It was great to meet you all! >The Out'n About Team
We booked this chalet for the duration of the Alberta winter Games based upon a recommendation from a work colleague- and were delighted in every respect! The bedrooms are spotless, extremely well appointed and comfortable- the master with ensuite has a huge bed with some of the nicest sheets I've slept on! Lots of towels, linens and extra blankets but they weren't needed even on the minus 35 degree nights! The second bedroom has 2 twin beds and ideally suited my mother. The large couch in the living area was a great spot to catch a few minutes between hockey games with the fireplace on. The couch served double duty when my brother in law and his wife stayed over- he said the pull out couch was the most comfortable sofa he'd ever slept on. The kitchen is thoughtfully set up with just about anything you'd need for any meal preparation including blender and Keurig Machine and the large dining table easily sat all six of us. Lots of storage spaces for winter coats, hats, boots and skis. The central location just off Bow Valley Trail is easy to get to from the TransCanada and just a short 5 minute walk to the new Elevation Place rec centre and an easy stroll to all the restaurants and stores downtown. We had a great 4-night stay I won't hesitate to highly recommend Donnas Chalet to anyone!
I'm very grateful for your feedback Bruce -- delighted in fact! Happy to hear your Winter Games netted a Silver Medal in hockey for your girls - well done! Hope to see you back in town with us again soon. Best, >Donna Scott, Owner Out'n About Vacation Chalets
This beautiful condo in Mystic Springs far exceeded our expectations! The photos looked inviting and it is even better in person :o) We enjoyed the charming and warm decor, it was very clean, the kitchen well equipped, the beds were so comfortable and the pools were amazing. Our family enjoyed Thanksgiving here and it is a perfect central location for the lakes, parks and hiking trails. Thank you to Donna for all the little extras. We hope to be back for another stay soon! ~Akins Family~
Hey Kelly, we are thrilled to have received this review from you, especially as it confirms our little extras are making such a difference in everyone's stay at our Out'n About chalets. Thanksgiving is a special time of year, and we'll continue to go the extra mile to make everyone's stay exceeds expectations! Looking forward to hosting you again soon. Best, >Donna Scott, Owner Out'n About Chalets & Townhomes Canmore, AB
Very nice rental home for our family of 6, had all the amenities we needed during our 5 night stay. It is located in a great area too, convenient to walk to downtown Canmore for anything you need, awesome rockies view from the chalet and easy drives to Banff, Lake Louise etc. We thoroughly enjoyed our vacation that was made more awesome due to our stay in Mystic Springs. Kids enjoyed the recreation room, we loved the hot tub! This is definitely a place i would recommend to anyone for their stay in Canmore.
We appreciate your review and recommendation of our Out'n About chalet located at the Mystic Springs resort! Thanks very much and we'll look forward to hosting you and your family again on your next vacation to Canmore/Banff & Lake Louise. Sincerely, Donna Scott, Owner Out'n About Vacation Chalets Canmore
We had a wonderful time at Mystic Springs! Not only was the condo the perfect place for our family's home-away-from-home, the area offered some great hikes and adventures. Lake Louise, Emerald Lake, Morraine Lake and Consolation Lake, and Lake Agnes were all breathtaking. Our toughest hike was Ha Ling - but the payoff at the top was worth it for sure! The kitchen was well equipped for big family meals at the end of the day and the beds were the perfect place to rest our head and tired legs. The hot tub came in handy for sore muscles too. We would recommend a visit to anyone. Thank you for an awesome family vacation!
Thank you for your comments and we are so glad you and your family were able to get out'n about to see so much of our wonderful region. Hope to see you back again! Kind regards, Donna Scott, Owner
We stayed at Donna's beautiful condo for 4 days while we waited for our house in Calgary to be done. After moving from Toronto with 2 kids and a dog, the last thing we wanted to do was stay in a hotel! With this condo, we had the best of both worlds! We had the conveniences of a hotel (fresh linens, great pool, bath products etc.) all while having the comforts of home (fully stocked kitchen, living room with cozy blankets). We look forward to coming back to vacation at Donna's condo again soon! Thanks for everything Donna. It was a pleasure dealing with you before, during and after our stay.
I'm so glad we made your transition from Toronto to Calgary a smooth one! I will look forward to hosting you all in Canmore again soon and thank you for your wonderful review!! >Donna Scott, Owner
Ideally located close to town, but with lots of privacy, this location was perfect for our family of 6. Pet friendly trails out the back door, comfortable beds, and a well equipped kitchen were the highlights. The coffee, organic spices, and dog treats were also a welcoming touch! We didn't get a chance to use the pool, (which looks incredible) but definitely plan to be back. Canmore is our absolute favorite Mountain destination offering so many fun activities year-round. Highly recommended!
Thank you so much for your wonderful comments. We'll look forward to hosting you all again in the Fall. >Donna Scott, Owner
We SO enjoyed our relaxing stay at this charming chalet. The spacious two floor unit is clean and modern and is situated in a nice, quiet section of the complex. We took advantage of the pools at the end of the day (practically had them to ourselves!), and then warmed up by the lovely fireplace in the cozy living room. The wireless internet was extremely fast, and the living room has a nice big flat screen TV with plenty of channels to fight over. Kitchen was well equipped and the bathrooms were nicely stocked. The complex is adjacent to walking trails, and it's only a 5 minute jaunt to downtown. Thank you so much Donna for your wonderful hospitality (and for your excellent guidebook!!). We would highly recommend this chalet to anyone looking for a great place to kick back and relax, or as a base while in Canmore for some mountain sports. See you next time!! -The Tarrs
Thank you very much for your wonderful review. So glad you had a great stay and we'll see you again.
We absolutely loved our weekend in this Townhome. It is beautiful and so well equipped. The outdoor pool is amazing - the kids loved swimming outside in winter! The hot tub was super relaxing after skiing. Accessing the Unit was very easy with two entries. The kitchen was well equipped. Everything was very clean. Booking the Unit was a very simple process. The front of the Unit is south facing so we enjoyed the sun beaming in through the windows and the awesome views of the mountains. We also had a blast in the games room playing ping pong and foosball. It was a GREAT weekend and we would absolutely recommend this as a great place to stay in the mountains!
Thank you so much for your wonderful comments about our mountain view chalet!! It's comments like these that make us so happy to be hosting families from around the world to our chalet and give us the chance to share our Canmore experiences with them. We'll look forward to seeing you again, >Donna & Geoff, Owners Out'n About Chalets
This was a great place to stay! We went for a Girls weekend away. The condo was beautifully decorated, clean and the beds were very comfortable! It was also nice to have two full bathrooms! The condo was very quiet, the pool and hot tub were amazing! The entire complex was so picturesque! It was very easy to book, and all my questions were answered quickly. I plan on making the girls weekend away an annual event and I plan on staying here again with the girls, and also with my family! We all left feeling very well rested because the condo was so relaxing to stay in. It was also very close to the main street for shopping and to the local pub for a night out! There was also lots of parking behind the condo. I highly recommend this to everyone!!
Many thanks for your wonderful review of our chalet!! It was a real pleasure having you all and we are thrilled you had such a great time. We will look forward to hosting you, your friends and families again in the near future. Your hosts, Donna & Geoff. Out'n About Chalets
We loved this townhouse-style unit. It had tons of space, very clean and the owners were very hospitable (the even left us dog treats for our puppy). Not far from Banff and Sunshine Village. Easily accomodates a large group of people (6) and it is pet friendly which is a super plus!!! We will for sure be coming back and bringing more of our friends! Thank you again!!!
Thank you very much for your enthusiastic review! We will look forward to hosting you and your friends again for another "out'n about" Canmore & Banff visit. >DS
