Smithers house description

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.

                              Owner info

                              Year Purchased: 2004

                              About the owner: 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.

                              Why the Owner 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.

                              The Unique Benefits at this House:
                              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.
