Smithers Chateau / Country House Rental Photos and Description

3 Bedroom / 2 Bathroom Sleeps 6

We LOVE our Glacier View home high above Lake Kathlyn for so many reasons! First, we just love Smithers and the surrounding area. The people here are simply the best, the scenery is beautiful beyond measure, and the fun, recreational activities are just endless! If you love the outdoors and fishing, hunting, hiking, bicycling, downhill skiing, cross-country skiing, snowmobiling, ice skating, quadding, photographing wildlife and natural wonders, trekking through the mountains, and just enjoying the most pristine natural environment you are going to find, then you will love Smithers too!

Why do we love our Glacier View home? Well, for starters, it's brand new! It's an ICF home (insulated concrete form), and it is the quietest, coziest place you can imagine. You don't hear the airport traffic, you don't hear the highway noise, you don't even hear the trains coming through town several times each day and night! Our home is easy to heat (you can practically heat this place with a cigarette lighter) and it stays oh-so-comfortably warm in the winter. And, we have ceiling fans in every bedroom and in the great room to circulate air and to help keep things just-right cool during the summer.

Our home is now finished and is currently occupied. Check our calendar for future availability! Some of the photos show our knotty hickory cabinets and imported granite counter tops, Brazilian Koa hardwood floors, and rare larch plank ceilings.

It was our aim to make our home as beautiful as we can to enjoy for ourselves and to share with you when we are not here! Check out all or our pictures and judge for yourself whether we succeeded. Our landscaping won't be completely finished until next summer. Until then, we are offering lower rental prices, so take advantage of them while they last!

We are also offering a GREAT SKI SEASON RATE from December 15 until April 1. Our weekly rate for the ski season is only $1150.00.

We look forward to hearing from you and to sharing our home with those of you who are seeking a GREAT vacation home in a GREAT vacation place! Those who have seen it call it beautiful, spectacular, and the best at a very reasonable price! How does it look to you?

We look forward to hearing from you and to having you as our guests in our new Glacier View home!

WE LOVED IT!

  • 5 of 5
The home is just beautiful!! We enjoyed our stay so much, the downhill skiing was fantastic, and we even got some wonderful cross country skiing in right from the house. We went down to the lake and had some winter skating fun on it as well. The view of the glacier from the front room is just to die for. The house was very well equipped with everything we needed and was so warm, comfy and cozy. The owners were wonderful to work with, and we can't wait to come back. Thank you!!

ABOVE AND BEYOND !

  • 5 of 5
My family had a wonderful stay at the house. It was more beautiful than the pictures. Absolutely beautiful. As we were busy with a wedding and the plans before hand, it was so nice to have a fully equipped home and no worries. Also to have an owner who would look after small personal needs for us visitors was a breath of fresh air. We definitely felt ' at home ' from the minute we set foot in the house. Our family came from so far away, Toronto, Minnesota, Alberta and the Dominican Republic. The house was home for us. We will definitely be back. Thanks for making our stay a very enjoyable experience. Our experience was ' above and beyond ' what I had expected. Awesome. We have already recommended this as the place to stay when visiting Smithers, to our friends.

SPRING BREAK GETAWAY

  • 4 of 5
This lovely home easily accommodated our family of four. It is very spacious and the furniture/beds are really comfortable. It is a bit of a drive to the ski hill, but not far enough to be a negative. The only things that would have moved our rating from good to excellent would have been a better view of the glacier, a bbq and internet access. Thanks for sharing your home with us.

Owner's Response: We are so glad that you enjoyed your stay! We really appreciated your comment to Cindy that "the pictures do not do it justice!" :-) I called twice during your stay to see if you had everything you needed and if things were going ok, but you didn't answer and didn't call back. Our BBQ was in the garage, put away for the winter, but if you had let us know, we would gladly have made it available for you. Sometimes in winter, the glacier is a bit socked in. Also, we are thinning and topping some trees this summer to make our view of the glacier even more beautiful! Thank you again for staying at our home and taking such good care of it. We would love to have you back!
