Enjoy Nature, Privacy, Hunting, Fishing or any Outdoor Activities like Skiing, Hiking or Kayaking?

River House Estate is an extraordinary retreat nestled just 25 miles from the Smithers regional airport, allowing plenty of privacy while still providing easy access for visitors. The Estate is currently a private residence for family and friends but would make a perfect Corporate Retreat for employees and business associates, a beautiful Fishing/Hunting Lodge, a perfect Religious Retreat, Dude Ranch, or some other resort/spa.

The property is a 293 acre, security gated and fenced Estate located in Northern British Columbia seven hundred miles north of the US/Canadian Border.

The Estate is just two miles/3.5 km from The Yellowhead Highway (Hwy 16) which is one of two routes, through British Columbia, to Alaska. River House Estate is between two small towns; Smithers and Houston. Houston lies 19 miles/31 km to the east and Smithers is 25 miles/41 km to the west. The property also sits midway between two larger communities, Prince George is 210 miles/338 km and Prince Rupert is 241 miles/388 km from River House and accessible by interesting and beautiful four hour drives. The drive to Prince Rupert has been deemed one of the ten most beautiful drives in the world by National Geographic.

River House Estate’s main residence, River House, is a 10,000 sq. ft. rustic three story log lodge with an attached three story artist studio. A log cabin called River Cabin lies just to the south, a few convenient steps away. The Lake Cabin sits on a 15-18 acre lake providing a secluded two bedroom cabin for additional guests. Three shops/sheds are conveniently located on the property with plenty of storage space for tractors, ATVs and boats.

The Estate has over 1/2 mile of river frontage on the Bulkley River a world class steelhead and salmon fishery. The fall steelhead run lasts from mid-August until freeze up or when fishing season ends on December 31st. The Bulkley also has annual runs of Chinook, Coho, Pink and sockeye salmon. The substantial chinook run starts before the river officially opens on June 15th and lasts several months. Cohos and pinks arrive in early September along with the occasional sockeye. Jet boating and canoeing to and from River House provides miles of experiencing this almost untouched wilderness. Bear, moose, elk and deer sightings happen on a regular basis with the occasional lucky drifter seeing the allusive wolf or cougar.

A fifteen acre lake resides on the southern property line between the River House property and government owned Crown Land. The lake holds over ten million gallons of water topped off annually from the snow melt. The overflow provides a seasonal small stream that flows through the property to the Bulkley River. While the lake is not home to native fish annual trout stocking provides wonderful fishing opportunities for visitors.

The Lake cabin sits right on the lake. The close by dock gives you easy access to the canoes and kayaks. Staying at this cozy cabin provides unlimited opportunities for wildlife viewing.

The lake is home to many ducks, geese and grebes that arrive annually to raise their families. In the fall, starting sometimes as early as August 15th, the southern migration of ducks, geese and swans begins. It is not uncommon to see flocks of well over a hundred ducks spend a day or two on their way south. Once the geese start moving south hardly a day goes by without a flock of fifty to seventy five geese coming in late in the day, spend the night, and depart early in the morning. Just before freeze up, in Early November, small groups of swans arrive and spend a day or two before heading south.

River House property is forested consisting of pine, spruce and poplar. There are two hayfields of twenty seven and seven acres that provide limited income but more importantly “edge” which is important to keep wildlife thriving on the property. Running randomly through and around the property are between twelve and fifteen miles of trails perfect for hiking, cross country skiing, snowmobiling and riding ATVs. Most trails are between eight and ten feet wide perfect for experiencing the abundant flora and fauna on the River House property.

What started as a dream to have a small fishing cabin on one of Canada’s many world famous fishing rivers, the Bulkley River, that turned into a 293 Acre Estate which now has:

• The original cabin named “The River Cabin”
• A main lodge named “The River House”
• A cabin attached to the main lodge named “The Studio Cabin”
• A lake cabin on a 15 acre private lake called “The Lake Cabin”
• 1/2 mile of Bulkley River Frontage
• Security gate and fenced except for river frontage
• 2 Storage sheds for up to 14 vehicles and 2 shops
• Move-in ready with furniture & many collectables
