I love Canmore. It is by far one of my favourite places to visit, but we never seem to get there enough. We drive through often on the way to Calgary and usually just stop quickly at Wendy’s or the Tourist Info Centre.
We have stayed there a few times with the kids and I grew up taking the odd family vacation there as it was always much more affordable over staying just minutes away in Banff.
It is also a perfect destination for ladies weekend getaway! Which is what I want to talk to you about.
Last weekend I stayed at Mystic Springs Chalets and Hot Pools with a ton of friends. We booked 5 condo’s and jaunted around from room to room to room and hot tub to hot pools.
There was a master bedroom with ensuite and then another room with two double beds with another washroom close by. The kitchen was beautiful with a great dining area and the living room was small, but had a cozy couch and was all set up for Netflix. Which was a bit of a highlight because we watched a serious amount of Gilmore Girls. Another highlight for me was the wifi. If you have travelled before, you know what I am about to say. Are you ready?
I HATE HOTEL WIFI. It is horrible.
But, not at Mystic Springs! Each condo had their own wifi. Yessssssss. That is a lifesaver for someone like me who makes their living from being connected online.
Canmore also has amazing shopping. What struck me was how many groups of women were doing the same thing that I was doing with my friends. We even met a group of teachers staying at Mystic Springs on a weekend get away after report card season.
Amen, teachers. A-freaking-men.
Now let’s get to even better part of this getaway, you can go one one too!
When you call Mystic Springs to book, mention the BLOG PROMO and you are going to get 1 night free after you book 2 nights. Isn’t that amazing!? There are some black out dates and this offer cannot be combined with any other offer. This promo is available until May 18, 2017.
I would also like to thank Calgary Co-Op, Good Earth Coffeehouse and Brewster Canada-Banff Gondola for their contributions for this trip. I am counting down the minutes to do this trip with my family and again with friends.
