Smithers chateau / country house description

FLASH: WE NOW HAVE DISH TELEVISION ON OUR 50 INCH FLAT SCREEN PLASMA TV AND WIRELESS INTERNET!

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!
