We LOVE our Glacier View home 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.
We finished our home in the fall of 2013, and in 2014 we put even more high-end finishing touches by adding more really nice furnishings. These include a combination ottoman/coffee table, area rugs, lamps for the night stands in the master bedroom, blinds on selected windows, and we are just finishing the landscaping now. Of course, the lawn won't be grown until 2915, but the snow is coming soon for this year anyway. Our home is now pretty much fully finished and is currently occupied. We have only a few small additional items we are contemplating for our home which we will add again next spring. 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. We have taken a great number of trees out of our view of the glacier this summer, and our glacier view is now even more beautiful than before! We also have cleared and topped trees so that we now have a really nice view of the Babine Mountains from the master bedroom deck also.
It was our aim to make our home as beautiful and as nice as we can to enjoy for ourselves and to share with you when we are not here living in it. Check out all ofr our newest pictures!
We have had lots of wonderful guests over the last year, and we thank everyone for their wonderful comments. Everyone who stayed with us told us that we had the nicest place available in the area. That is always very nice to hear, and we invite you to try our Glacier View Home and judge it for yourselves! We spared no expense putting only those things of highest quality in our home. We ask only that you enjoy it with us, and that you please help us take good care of it along the way.
We are also offering reduced rates for fewer than 6 guests. We wanted our rate structure to be equally advantageous for smaller groups, so here is what we wanted to offer to good people who can't put a larger group together, but would still like to enjoy our Glacier View Home. Our base rental rate for 1 or 2 guests is $1050, and each additional guest up to a maximum of 6 guests pays an additional rental rate of $30.00 per night.
The many guests who have now stayed with is have called our Glacier View Home truly beautiful, spectacular, and the very best at a reasonable price! We appreciate what our guests have had to say about our home and our service. And now, we look forward to hearing from you!
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!!
Dee and Teresa thanks for sharing your home! Myself and two friends decided to go to Smithers to ride Snowmobiles.(Alaska had no snow) we were lucky to find this home to stay in, it was one of the many highlights of our trip. After a long day of waist deep powder and sore muscles we were able to return to a very well stocked house that felt just like home. If you are looking to go to Smithers and rent a home for a week, I can't imagine there being a better place to stay.
Thank you for sharing your beautiful home. From the moment we walked thru the door it felt like home. Enjoyed the view,spectacular. The close proximity to town made it very convenient for our stay. Especially enjoyed all the moose wandering around, and the quiet neighborhood. Thank you for having us. Bruce
This place is even more beautiful than the pictures! Dee and Theresa were always swift to reply to any questions we had and were very helpful. Our stay in the gorgeous house with a fabulous view of the mountains was beyond our expectations!
This was our second Christmas in Smithers. Our first stay was wonderful and our expectations were high. Teresa and Dee have kept the house in immaculate condition, and our expectations were exceeded. This house and surrounding area have so much to offer, I would recommend them to anyone.
Teresa and Dominic. Thank you for a great stay at your Smithers residence. The only complaint I would have is that the kitchen supplies were fairly inadequate. I love to cook and I found it a little difficult as the kitchen was missing basic items. A steamer for vegetables, a bottle opener, a barbecue, etc. Also having a larger capacity coffee maker would be great. (I love my coffee) haha. Other than that your place is absolutely beautiful! I would recommend it to people for sure. I would give it a 4.5 out of 5 rating. If the kitchen was better stocked it would be a 5. By the way, the pots and pans are very nice. Hope this helps!
