About the property

3 Bedroom Home On Bulkley River with mountain view

Surrounded by mature trees and natural beauty, the tranquil sound of the river takes away the busy life styles. No hustle and bustle here. The house was built in 1926 and provides three bedrooms with lots of natural light and river sound.

In the kitchen there is lots of counter space, everything you need for cooking. Two coffee pots that makes different sizes to suit if you have guests visit while you stay with us. Porch has lots of room to hang your fishing gear. Large freezer for your big salmon. In the living room you can view the river in all three windows or just read a book in peace and quiet. Upstairs which was added on after the house was built has the three bedrooms with cozy warm blankets or duvets.

Also shelves in the hall of reading materials, games and musical instruments.Satellite TV.

Walk from inside to the front deck and sit by the fire on the large patio which over looks the river. Morning coffee, viewing the Hudson Bay Mountain and the Telkwa Mountain Range.

Spend your day going on a hike on the Aldermere trail, fishing any lake or the world known Bulkley River for Steelhead,salmon or trout. Check fishing regulations for when to fish and what is available. Catch salmon right out front on the property. You can see the water conditions in the morning.

Skiing(both cross country, back-country and downhill) snowshoes, snowmobiling, and bike rentals in town ten minutes away (not provided).Just added pontoon rentals for up to 6 people.

Walk in Telkwa along the boardwalk to some of the historical houses and businesses.

Play badminton, beach volleyball, croquet or horseshoes in the yard. Swim in the eddy at the park or play in the sand.

Enjoy your vacation in peace and quiet, where flora, fauna, and cultural heritage are the primary attractions.

About Phil Davies

Moved here July 2013 to enjoy the beauty of the valley. Enjoy all aspects of outdoors. Favorite thing is cooking on the open fire in front of the house with the river ambiance.(of course a few cold ones).I work a lot which takes me away from the house but has given me a chance to let someone enjoy it as much as I do.

Phil Davies purchased this house in 2012

Why Phil Davies chose Telkwa


peace, beauty,fishing,star gazing,wildlife, love to come home to this.Working in the oilfield is hard work. Alot of hustle and bustle. I want to come home to relax,fish and enjoy the valley.There is so much to do,I wish I had more time. I spend everyday I am home at the front of the house with a fire and the river. I forget about life in general and concentrate on what is in front of me. Natural beauty!

There is so many things to do. River boating,kayaking,skiing,fishing,hiking. It is not stop opportunities.

What makes this house unique

ten minutes to Smithers. Fishing in one of the hottest spots on the Bulkley across the river for all species of salmon, dolly's and steelhead.The view from the "river room" and sound is amazing. Can't hear anything but the river. Property is secluded by surrounding trees.

Guestbook comments from the manager

Very enjoyable stay , the home was cozy ,and the beds where very comfortable. We only used the kitchen to make breakfast, as lunches and dinners where at the wedding. Every night we all enjoyed sitting around the fire pit,  being right was on the river ,it was the high light of our stay. We cooked Sunday night dinner on the grate over the fire, baked potatoes, corn on the cob and steaks, so good!  May stay again as my daughter lives in Telkwa .    Thanks WE All Loved IT.

So Comfortable

  • 5 of 5

What a great place to stay for our fishing excursion. We were able to check out the river conditions from the deck each day and count how many fisherman were up earlier than we were as they went by the front door floating down the river. Nice to have a home base that clean and comfortable with plenty or room. The covered back porch made it easy to gear up each day in spite of the rain. I would have liked to make more use of the deck and the yard but the rain this year kept me inside. Maybe we can come back earlier in the year for the salmon fishing and make use of the horse shoe pits and volley ball net.

Thanks for the great stay. Hope to see you next year

Telkwa paradise

  • 5 of 5

Thank you Michelle for a great stay! What an incredible place. Very cozy. All the ammenities one would need. We almost decided to sit on the big patio all day in front of the fire with a beer in hand watching the river flow by. Well.... Almost. The allure of swinging flies on the bulkley was too great! Anyway, I highly recommend this getaway to fishermen or a family looking to get away from the hustle bustle of the city! Hope to be back again! Cheers!

Owner's Response: Thank you and I agree. I have sat all day by the fire and forget about fishing. Something about that property on the river, takes everything away. Cheers till we see you again. Glad you enjoyed it
