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, 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.
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
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.
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!!
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!
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.
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 :)
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.
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...
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 :)
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 !
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!!
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.
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.
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.
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!
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!
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!
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!
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.
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.
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.
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!
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.
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!
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.
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!
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!
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~
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 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!
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.
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!
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
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!
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!!
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!!!
