Superb property, very well maintained. Owner and manager were great to deal with. Very quiet and amazing views. About 5 minute drive from the center of Smithers, Hudson Bay Mountain Resort is ~30 minute drive to the carpark.

My wife and daughter and myself stayed there for a week and it was truly fantastic. Everything we needed was in the house. The view was incredable. We will definately be going back again. Thanks

everything was perfect. I hope you'll let us come again. Only downside was the scale in the bathroom! In town we loved the Mexican Restaurant in the train station.

lovely cabin on lake

We truly enjoyed our stay. This log cabin was clean and was very well suited for our young family. Situated on a lake, with beautiful views of the mountains and just minutes from the Smithers Airport and very convenient. I would use and recommend to friends. Only down side, no internet and no dishwasher.

We loved the house and the location. We highly recommend it. The frozen lake was great for skate skiing. Great downhill at Hudsons Bay Mountain. Thank-You.

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.
