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.

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.

The condo was perfect for our needs, we all loved it! The kids especially loved the moose in the can! The pool area is a bit run down; but no one in our party minded! And just a caution to those traveling with elders; there are no bathrooms on the main floor. Our 80 year old granny found the stairs a bit tiring after long days outside.

We stayed here with our 2 teenage kids, they loved the hot tub after a day of hiking. Would definitely stay there again

Had a great week away, would definitely recommend it.

Great condo with all amenities needed!

  • 5 of 5

Perfect location at the enterance to Canmore. Highlights of the property are location, pool, hot tub, security, cleanliness, BBQ facilities, laundry on sight, full sized kitchen stocked with plenty of dishes, keurig and crock pot, 2 bedrooms with 3 beds, 2 bathrooms both with showers. Park pass for banff included. Easy to contact owner with questions. Only drawback is property is close to a banquet facility and parking on the weekend was difficult for us (summer). Would be nice to have one stall designated for your condo.

Owner's Response: Thanks kindly for your review of our out'n about chalet! It is always so nice to hear that our added personal touches make a difference in our guests stays. Agreed, this summer has been a bit of a challenge on busy weekends parking-wise, but glad it worked out for you after the one night limited space. I'm also happy to hear your first time using VRBO/Homeaway was smooth and easy to book with us. Look forward to seeing you again with us soon! Sincerely, >Donna Scott, Owner Out'n About Vacation Chalets

Great weekend getaway!!

  • 5 of 5

Really enjoyed our weekend at the condo. Lots of space and a great location. The kitchen had everything we needed. Pool and hot tub easily accessible. The condo was in the middle of the block but very quiet and we never heard our neighbour's. Would definitely stay here again!
