About Property Manager/Owner
It has always been Eric and Jessie's dream to have a hobby farm. He wanted to raise animals and make cheese, and she wanted to make use of her horticultural training. While raising ten kids, they purchased a parcel of land south of Powell River in 2004 and designed and built their "Green Gambrels" house. Now that the kids are all grown they'd like to share the family farm experience with other families and guests. Their daughter, Ginny, and her husband, Nat, moved to the farm to help with the bed and breakfast, and to care for the animals and grounds.
Property Manager/Owner purchased this Farmhouse in 2008

Hosts were so friendly and accommodating. Place was clean, quiet, comfortable... had everything we needed!
The breakfast they provided was so amazing. Nothing beats farm fresh eggs!
We will be returning for sure.
Thank you so much for your review! We really enjoyed having you here and would love to have you back. You were exemplary guests!
Awesome people and place!! So friendly
We love spending 7 days on the farm, with my 2 kids: newborn and 3,5.
My son gave our veggie compost every day to the animals: goats and cows. Jenny and her parents took time to explain every thing we were curious of in the farm. We picked up tons of blueberry.
The place and stuff are definitively good for kids, parents and grandparents.
Breakfasts were tremendous.
We loved it and we will come back!
A total gem; very family friendly!
We stayed for four nights and absolutely loved our experience! Our young daughters helped milk goats in the morning and collected chicken and duck eggs in the afternoon, and the owners were so gracious and kind to our children.
We picked as many raspberries as we could eat (three bucket fulls). The included breakfast was brought to our room every morning and included fresh egg omelets, fresh crepes, bacon, porridge, fresh milk, fresh cheeses made by the owners, and more!
The living space was new, clean and spacious. They even have a separate nursery room with a beautiful crib! Our baby slept better in the nursery than she does at home :)
The location was perfectly situated outside of Powell River (a short drive to town), and there is a blueberry/strawberry farm about a half kilometer down the street with fresh berries, juice, salsas and ice cream for sale.
We travel a lot, and consider this this experience truly memorable. Thank you Eric, Jessie, and Ginny for your kindness and genuine hospitality; we are grateful!
Thank you so much! We very much appreciated your kindness to the animals, friendliness, and general enthusiastic nature! You were very considerate guests; we thank you for leaving the place spotless. It was a joy to have you all on the farm, and we would gladly have you back someday!

We are located in a forested community near the ocean. Hiking, swimming, and beachcombing are some of the most common activities in our area. In addition, there will be plenty of opportunity to spend time with our farm animals and enjoy the farming lifestyle right outside your door!
