About Donna Scott

We bought two chalets at Mystic Springs as vacation properties/investments to enjoy with our two daughters while living in Edmonton. We loved Canmore so much, we moved here permanently in 2005. As an avid outdoor family, we've hiked, biked, kayaked, rock-climbed, nordic and downhill skied everywhere throughout our wonderful area -- Canmore and Banff are truly a mountain lovers four season paradise. We know you'll love it too!

Donna Scott purchased this chalet in 2003

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 all are 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! Our chalets also have ski lockers to safely store your gear. 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, intimate boutique resort community.

Cozy and convenient!

  • 5 of 5

Our home away from home in Canmore was lovely! We found the accommodations adequate for us and our three children. Just steps from our front door, we enjoyed the shared hot tub and pool every evening after our hard work hiking to great places. We loved that we could walk to Canmore to enjoy the many restaurants and shops and did this daily. We found Donna very responsive to our needs. Thanks for the great tennis game, Donna!!!

Comfortable, convenient and affordable

  • 5 of 5

This condo was comfortable, convenient and well priced. We used this as our home base while doing some hiking in Banff and Jasper. After visiting both the towns of Banff and Lake Louise and seeing the crowds, I could not be happier we decided to stay in Canmore. More so, this complex is well maintained and only 0.5 mile from the town center, convenient to everything but away from the hustle and bustle. The living room was comfortable as were the beds, the kitchen had everything we needed and the temperature was easy to control. Donna was well organized and laid out all instructions for what we needed. We enjoyed the hot tub a few times which was reasonably clean but well used. We also used the laundry service for $4/load, just outside the door of the condo. I would not hesitate to staying here again when visiting Banff and Jasper. The extra 20 minute drive from Banff is well worth the location and the peace and quiet you'll get here away from the summer chaos that can be Banff and Lake Louise.

Owner's Response: Yay! Thank you Vanessa for your detailed review. Agreed, Canmore is way less touristy and we do enjoy a more laid back ambiance in comparison to Banff. We'll look forward to hosting you all again on your next visit to the Rockies! Kind regards, >Donna

Home away from home

  • 5 of 5

This property is in an amazing location: 1. we preferred staying in Canmore over Banff since Canmore is a little less touristy and has a very chill vibe; 2. within the complex, this unit is conveniently located with an amazing view of the mountains, while also being within easy access to the street, parking, laundry and the pool. The property was spacious for our family of four so we were able to spread out during the week.

The property included all the starter amenities we needed to start enjoying our trip and is close to several grocery stores. Since the kitchen was fully stocked, we were able to mix it up by cooking and eating out during the week.

I recommend this property to any friends going to the Banff area!

Owner's Response: Thank you very much for your detailed review of our chalet and area! Agreed, our location is much more "chill" compared to the crowds over in Banff. Canmore is centrally located to so many areas -- Kananaskis, Spray Lakes, Banff, Lake Louise and further into Yolo and Kootenay Provincial Parks -- it's hard to choose from so many activities. Also glad you found the chalet was equipped with everything you needed to make you feel right at home. Please do come again! Sincerely, >Donna Scott, Owner Out'n About Vacation Chalets

Just as nice as described

  • 5 of 5

So enjoyed your lovely chalet - it was just as nice as described. Very clean. My kids were either in the pool or your "Harry Potter" room. We will tell our friends back in Oregon to come here. Thank you Donna for all the little extras you did for us.

Okay but not great

  • 2 of 5

Our stay at this location was not great because the bed linens and bath towels had not been properly dried, resulting in a shock when we dried off after a shower-we smelled like stinky towels. Then we had to climb into bed sheets that smelled just as bad. We didn't sleep well that night. The towels and bed linens were changed the next day, but several of the towels still had this odor. Given what we paid per night, we were extremely disappointed. Given the situation, I expected someone to check in with us to see if the remedy was satisfactory, but that did not occur.

It is in walking distance of the shopping areas. There is so much hiking in the area that we didn't spend much time at the chalet. Next time we will get a room at a hotel. This location was not worth the extra expense.

Owner's Response: This client contacted us about smelly towels and linens and we promptly changed them with new, not smelly towels and linens. Sometimes, you just can't please people. The good news is, we've now contracted a professional laundry company that just started up in Canmore to do all of our towels and linens with top of the line commercial equipment so this will not ever happen again. >Donna Scott, Owner Out'n About Vacation Chalets

Not good for a first time traveller to Canmore, and not good for traveling with elderly person

  • 2 of 5

Both rooms are upstairs, and there is no bathroom downstairs. I had informed owner that my father was 84, but I probably did not read fine print and she offered no caution here that the rooms are upstairs. I thought one room/bath was down and one was up. OOPS. Dishwasher was dirty and had dirty dish in it. Dishes in cabinet were also dirty. The coffee maker we thought was broken, but owner did come by and wrote instructions, There was no cream or sugar. Kleenex box was empty. This was my first VRBO - maybe I am a novice here and expectations were too high. On positive side, the beds were comfortable and the bear theme was cute.

Owner's Response: Hi Radha, I do hope that future guests read our descriptions and view the photos of our chalets thoroughly so as not to be surprised at our accommodations. Our dish washer is new and our cleaners know to check all dishes before putting them away. We also provided you with extra coffee, cream and sugars and filters for the drip machine as your older parents didn't know how to use our Kuerig coffee machine (instructions were beside it btw). Sorry you were disappointed. Kind regards, >Out'n About Chalets

Surrounded by the magnificent Canadian Rockies, the town of Canmore is one of the most beautiful communities in Canada. Just an hour and 15 minutes from the Calgary International Airport and five minutes from Banff National Park east gate, Canmore offers a spectacular location with unequalled 4 seasons of outdoor recreational opportunities. World class restaurants and unique, original shopping experiences await you in the heart of some of the world's most breathtaking scenery. Neighbouring Kananaskis Country offers a scenic recreation area made up of more than 4,000 square kilometers of mountain parks.

Canmore is an eclectic mix of old wild west hospitality combined with all the modern services amenities you'd expect in a first class resort community. It's residents are friendly - in fact, we've been voted some of the most happy people in Canada. Come visit and see for yourself eh!
