Nestled between Lake Kathlyn and the Kathlyn Glacier, this newly-renovated and spacious suite is a great landing spot for couples, families and groups of friends. It is steps from Lake Kathlyn, a five-minute drive to hiking trails, and an eight-minute drive to Main Street, Smithers.

Kick back and enjoy the outdoors with our barbecue, fire pit and canoe.

The space
The suite is particularly spacious with plenty of storage, making it ideal for those arriving with gear for skiing, hunting or other adventures.
We have a trail loop in the woods (about 250m) that is ideal for a morning walk with your coffee.

This is a daylight basement suite with the owners living above. It is located on an acreage, so parking for RVs and other toys is not an issue.

For rainy days or relaxing after a day on the slopes, the suite has video games, a VHS video collection, puzzles and a smart tv.

Where you’ll be

Smithers, British Columbia, Canada

This suite is just a short walk to the shore of Lake Kathlyn, and a five-minute drive to the Silvern Lakes and Glacier Gulch trailheads.

Conveniently, it is a 3-minute drive to the Smithers airport and an 8-minute drive to Main Street.

Lake Kathlyn is beautiful, with particularly spectacular mountain views on sunny days. The public beach has basic services including benches, picnic tables, change rooms and portable toilet facilities. There is no running water. Lake Kathlyn is perfect for swimmers and those who enjoy paddle craft. Fishing is also possible from small boats. The day use area is maintained from May to September.

Once the lake freezes in the winter months, you can enjoy ice fishing, ice skating, and cross country skiing.

The glacier is quite visible from outside the suite, and Twin Falls is roughly 2km away.
