This log cabin is on the edge of Lake Kathlyn in the beautiful Bulkley Valley near Smithers; the town of four seasons. Smithers offers all amenities and outdoor winter and summer sports.
Our three bedroom cabin offers two Queen rooms and a single small room with two bunk beds.There is also a heated room outside the kitchen for use as a drying room in the winter. All windows are double glazed. Lake Kathlyn freezes in the winter for all forms of XC skiing and skating and in the summer months has abundant wildlife humming birds, canada geese and loons. The cabin is 4km from Smithers and 1km from the airport. The lake is a sanctuary and no motorised boats are permitted. The downhill skiing and XC ski club are open for five months of the year. Highlights in the valley include the steelhead fishing season, hunting and hiking.

I grew up in Australia which does not have such spectacular mountains. Having worked in Canada in the 1980's I always wanted a classic Canadian log cabin on a lake with a view.
David Whish purchased this house in 2004
Smithers is in the Bulkley Valley which can be breathtakingly beautiful in all seasons. You do not see all the seasons in the tropics where I live. The cabin has been meticulously finished by the best local builder.
I have many friends in Smithers. I enjoy the skiing, hiking, wildlife and wilderness. A cross country ski around the lake is a great workout. Many types of humming birds appear in the Summer.
From the moment we arrived we knew our stay would be wonderful. The view alone is worth the stay! The cabin is warm and inviting as well as spacious. It is well equipped and we loved its homey atmosphere. This would appeal to all sorts of travelers. Swimming in front of the property was not the best but there is a public beach across the lake with a sandy beach and there are several places to go for a beach day like Tyee lake among others. This did not deter us in anyway as the view as I said was worth the stay alone! We enjoyed sitting out on the patio enjoying our coffee as well as many evening BBQ's. This is a truly spectacular property.
Beautiful log home with the best views (lake, mountains). Spacious and very clean. I would definitively go back! Highly recommend. Great for all ages.
Spectacular doesnt even come close. The cottage was beautiful - well laid out, private, wuiet yet very open. Very unique design. It was also well stocked - everything you needed was there. The view from the west side of the cottage (out back) was breath taking. We had a hard time leaving. I would call it "a piece of paradise". We would return in a heartbeat - both because of the cabin and the town of Smithers. A beautiful vacation spot! A beautiful home!
We had 7 women for a girls weekend getaway. The house and setting were perfect. We had a wonderful time. Highly recommend.
My family rented this place with another family for a week of skiing in Smithers. There were 6 of us total, and it was perfect. The house was beautiful, comfortable, and very well appointed. There wasn't a thing that we could have changed to make it more comfortable.
The owner was very quick to reply to any questions we had before we went down, and the local property manager was equally as helpful. We will be back for sure!
We have stayed at the log house twice now, and it is a great place to visit and unwind. It is very convenient to the airport and town, and is in a nice, quiet area on the lake. Both times were in the winter, and this home is nice and cozy. It's very peaceful to sit in front of the fireplace with a good book and cup of hot chocolate! (And the skiing on Hudson Bay Mountain was great as well.)
