About David Whish
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
Why David Whish chose Smithers
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.
What makes this house unique
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.
