Looking for an epic stay in the heart of the Canmore/Banff/Lake Louise Rocky Mountains? Look no further! Our premier south-facing mountain view chalet is located in a small 'n intimate resort just minutes away from downtown Canmore. We are proudly & independently owner-operated -- Out'n About Vacation Chalets was established January 1st, 2012. Our numerous reviews speak for themselves.

Imagine stepping from your car and into our pristine, cozy and comfortable Rocky Mountain-themed chalet. You'll be rewarded with awe-inspiring mountain views from our south facing windows and patio. 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) has two bedrooms, 2 bathrooms and is fully and very comfortably furnished. The well equipped kitchen comes complete with a complimentary Keurig coffee maker along with a selection of K-Cups, and a "Pay it Forward" mini-bar for your enjoyment. We’ve also added a blender for your healthy smoothies to start off the day, and a slow cooker for savoury family-friendly comfort meals simmering while you’re out ‘n about. If you prefer to grill, common area BBQ’s are nestled in our lovely, private common area courtyard steps away from our chalet.

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.

The property is fantastic

  • 5 of 5

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!

Cozy, clean, well decorated comfortable beds large hot tub and heated pool

  • 4 of 5

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.

Out'n About Vacation Chalet

  • 5 of 5

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.
