A unique home away from home in the Bulkley Valley. A rural, riverside location with a view of the ski runs on Hudson Bay Mountain. There is a large deck, plenty of room for frisbee or other lawn games and lovely walks. Just minutes from downtown Smithers!
Enjoy this beautiful natural setting along the Bulkley River and only minutes (about 8 km) to downtown Smithers.
It is modern with lots of natural light, a fully equipped kitchen, wifi, cable tv and a large deck and yard.
There are also board games, a small book exchange, piano, stereo with device cable for your own music, bocce and frisbees.
Keyless entry makes access a breeze.
This listing is for one room, however I have 3 rooms available and can accommodate a group of 6 or 7.
Bedroom 1 - queen bed
Bedroom 2 - queen bed
Bedroom 3 - single over double bunk bed
A foldout cot (narrow but suitable for an adult) is also available.
If you want to book more than one room, I will adjust the rate accordingly as the rate shown is for one room only. This is easier for you than having to book each room separately and will also give you a lower rate for a group. I will not complete the booking before you have been informed of and agreed to the rate. Please see my other listing 'Beautiful House on the Bulkley River to book the whole house (not available for single night stays).
Children are welcome, but the home does not have any particular child safety features or baby-proofing. You are responsible for providing what you need.
Well behaved & socialized dogs are welcome. Please contact me first as I like to know who to expect and there is a small additional cleaning fee to cover the extra time required to clean.
The Bulkley River runs behind the house. It is a world class steelhead river however, if fishing is not your interest, nearby are..
-Endless hiking trails in summer
-Bike routes to suit everything from a leisurely back-road peddle to downhill and free-ride trails on Hudson Bay Mountain.
Skiing includes numerous back country trails including Hankin Evelyn Recreation Area, North America's sole lift-free, ski-touring only recreation area!
-45 km of set cross country ski tracks at the Bulkley Valley Nordic Centre, including lit track for night skiing and 2 dog trails.
-And of course, downhill resort skiing on Hudson Bay Mountain
Smithers is truly a recreational playground paradise.
Guests have access to the kitchen, living room, laundry, bath & huge yard. The kitchen has a modern gas stove, microwave, dishwasher and just about anything you might need.
I enjoy interacting with guests but don't expect it if they prefer their privacy. Sometimes, my schedule may be busy as well. However, I am always happy to provide information about the area and suggestions for restaurants and things to see and do.
Towels and bedding are included.
This is a picturesque, rural area and while close to town, there are both domestic farm animals, wildlife & a major river in the area. Please do not try to approach wildlife and always be safe.
If you are visiting in winter, the climate can be severe in the north so be mindful of conditions which can sometimes be slippery.
You are completely welcome to use the kitchen. I just ask that you wash what you use.
There is no smoking inside the house. You can let me know if you need an ashtray for outside.
Please ask first about pets. They are welcome as long as they are well behaved. There may be a small extra charge.
I live in beautiful, northwestern BC, Canada. Its the perfect place to spend time outdoors, hiking and biking in the summer; skiing and skating on frozen lakes in winter. When indoors, I like to read, cook and play with clay. Of course I also love to travel which is how I was introduced to airbnb. My experiences in Berlin and Warsaw were so nice, I decided to start hosting people in my home in Smithers. I've really enjoyed meeting all the people I have hosted and stayed with.
