We have lived, played and raised our family in the beautiful Bulkley Valley since 1988. Our passion for hiking, skiing and paddling brought us to Northern British Columbia, specifically Smithers, in search of deep powder, less traveled trails and free running rivers.

The wonderful community of Smithers has become our base camp to adventure; we hope it will become yours, too at The Stork Nest Inn - your source for affordable accommodations in Smithers BC.
