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 small room with two single beds. The house accommodates up to 6 people. 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 hummingbirds, 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.

About David Whish
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.
David Whish purchased this House in 2004
Why David Whish 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.
What makes this House unique
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.

Beautiful home, spacious for our family, and fully equipt kitchen.
Very clean home upon arrival- had everything we needed! They even put up extra Christmas decorations for us which they did not need to do-thank you. Bath & shower water is very discoloured and smells from the lake, but they do provide ample drinking water. Great location to downtown and fairly close to the ski hill. (30-40 min). Had some difficulty using PayPal as payment, so ensure you send cash/cheque so you don’t get charged extra for using PayPal.
Beautiful Lake Front Cabin
Beautiful and well situated cabin/house on the lake. We stayed at the house for two weeks working out of Smithers. The owner and property manager were very accommodating as we need to extend our stay for an adjusted work shift. I would highly recommend this property to anyone looking to stay in the Smithers area for a few nights to a few weeks.
The cabin in perfect. Lots of room. Nice to have 2 showers as well! The views are FANTASTIC!
Would highly recommend this place to anyone. Well equipped. Cozy. Great views. Ample sleeping quarters. Overall we had a great stay and look forward to returning!
Our second girls trip and we enjoyed ourselves again!
The cabin is beautiful, right on the water and just a short distance from Smithers. The view is incredible! The only reason I didn't give it a 5 is because the water had a very strong sulphur odour that we couldn't seem to get rid of. Other than that it was fantastic!!!!
As we take the water from the lake and filter it for all household usage except drinking we have been chasing the cause. We have changed all filters in the house and are now looking at the well in the front yard and the well man says he will be able to fix it.
Thanks for the review
Great property. Good location. Excellent views. All the comforts of home with a cottage feel.
