About the property

2 Bedroom, Office/Den, 2 Bathrooms, Sleeps 1 to 4 Adults with Stunning Views!


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, camping, 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 and 2015 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 landscaping. We just started renting the home again, so check for near-term 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 of our newest pictures!

We have had lots of wonderful guests over the last few years, and we thank everyone for their fantastic 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, but we invite you to try our Glacier View Home and judge it for yourselves! We ask only that you enjoy it with us!

We are also offering reduced rates for longer-term stays of 30 days or more. And, we want to make our home advantageous for singles or couples who just want to enjoy our home by themselves or who cannot put together a larger party. Respectfully, we do not allow pets.

The many guests who have now stayed with us have called our Glacier View Home truly beautiful, amazing, fantastic, 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!
