About Gwen McVicker

Ron and Gwen McVicker are the Owners of Linwood House and the Carriage House. We built this beautiful Victorian estate as a place for our family and friends to come and get refreshed and restored. We added the Carriage House in 2008 and after numerous requests have finally opened it up to vacation rentals. Linwood House is our home and we are passionately committed to creating a place of beauty and peace.

Gwen McVicker purchased this cottage in 1997

Why Gwen McVicker chose Sunshine Coast D

In 1997, we came to the Sunshine Coast to visit my brother and as a lark I mentioned to the real estate agent that I would be interested in a 5 acre property nestled in the woods with a beautiful Victorian manor. He happened to have just the property. We fell in love with it the moment we saw it. After purchasing the property we expanded the house to 8500 sq feet and added the Carriage House a few years ago.

A cozy retreat, nestled in the forrests of Roberts Creek.

  • 5 of 5

A gorgeous carriage house that is beautifully crafted and decorated. Gwen and Ron truly made us feel welcome on their property, which is an amazing sight.

The photos do speak a thousand words in this case. We were completely happy with our stay and wouldn't hesitate to return.

Outstanding!

Gwen and Ron’s property is beautiful and their hosting skills go above and beyond. It was a pleasure to stay in their coach home and to experience their main property. Would definitely visit again :)

Peaceful tranquility

We have had a very restful and relaxing time. The carriage house was set back in the woods and gave us great peace for the weekend.

A beautiful home in the woods

  • 5 of 5

Our stay on the Sunshine Coast with the McVickers was a wonderful time. The carriage house is located on their large property and despite being across from their main house it was very private and quiet. The carriage house was very well supplied and was furnished beautifully with comfortable beds and a fantastic bathroom. The building itself is gorgeous. The property is lush and very cool and I certainly enjoyed my coffee with my book in the morning sitting at the little private pond below the house.

The location was very central on the Sunshine Coast being only 15m from both Gibsons and Sechelt. We enjoyed walking down to Robert's Creek for breakfast and lunch at the Gumboot Restaurant and Cafe and the fish and chips at Sharkey's just down the road is out of this world.

If you are looking for a quiet and relaxing place to get away from it all this would be a beautiful place.

A very special property that is in amazing wooded glen on the Sunshine coast with a gracious owner.

  • 5 of 5

The property is exceptional and the description accurate and true. The architecture is remarkable and the gardens and estate very well maintained and developed. The owners Gwen and Ron were gracious and helpful with all of our needs.

We found Robert's Creek a great location which is very close by care or a reasonable walk with an excellent restaurant, shops and great beach.

We will plan to return and explore more of the area.

Accessed by ferry from Horseshoe Bay to Langdale, Roberts Creek is just 20 minutes from the terminal.

The Carriage House is located at Linwood House in Roberts Creek, nestled in a 5 acre forest and surrounded by beautiful gardens, springs and ponds. The Carriage House is the perfect get away for a family who enjoy beach-combing and hiking or the writer looking for the perfect inspiring peaceful location.

Unique and delightful restaurants abound - from the best fish and chips at Sharky's to waterfront fine-dining at Chasters.
