We stayed at Richard's place in Smithers for all of October and the first week of November and we couldn't have asked for a better airbnb location or host! Richard was always available to answer any of our questions or if we needed to borrow a muffin pan or just to chat with. The place itself was perfect with lots of space for the two of us and our friend who came to visit for 10 days while we were out there. The suite was very clean and newly renovated, the kitchen was well equipped (we were able to make a full thanksgiving dinner there!) and we really appreciated that we had a washer/dryer to use as well. The pull-out couch was very comfortable and our friend said that he slept very well on it while he was visiting. We had a fantastic time in Smithers fly fishing for Steelhead in the local rivers and exploring the amazing northern British Columbia wilderness. One thing we'd like to highlight to anyone who is planning on staying at Richard's lovely place is that it is located to the LEFT of the path up the hill.. We accidentally pulled into the wrong driveway when we first arrived (on to a property that also had an above-the-garage suite! and the property owner is also named Richard haha) so hopefully future travellers won't make the same mistake we did :) The location was great, just outside of town, and so close to the Bulkley River. The view from the suite is pretty incredible, we'll miss waking up to those mountain views every morning!!! We can't wait to come back to Smithers and hopefully stay here again. We would definitely recommend staying here to anyone heading to Smithers! Thank you Richard & family for your hospitality, we'd love to keep in touch and hear how things are going out there.
All the very best,
Victoria & Winston
