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

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.

Lovely Cottage getaway

  • 5 of 5

The cottage is lovely, heavy beam architecture excellent touches everywhere. Just the two of us and our dog so it was loads of room. The hiking was great, found some excellent food choices as well. Great for a quiet getaway or if you are the outdoors type lots to do as well. Ron and Gwen are lovely hosts and Louise makes the place look like a mini Bouchart! It is next to their home but very private. Extremely nice stay!

Secluded, quiet, beautiful property, close to both Sechelt & Gibson's Landing.

  • 4 of 5

Well appointed, new condition, gorgeous timber construction home. Design more suited to families with the open concept second bedroom, bath and TV area upstairs. Main floor bedroom was very comfortable; however, closest space was limited. Beds are top quality, providing a great sleep.

Beautiful place, wonderful hosts!!

  • 5 of 5

We were on the Sunshine Coast in mid March 2016. The weather was gorgeous so we took full advantage of beach walks, the quaint shops and a beautiful approx. 2 mile hike at Smugglers Cove -- breathtaking seascapes!! The Carriage House is located on a large property with gorgeous landscaping all around. The only noises you hear are livestock from the neighbouring farm and birds from the many trees all around. The building is as beautiful as in the pictures -- I loved the wood work -- a true craftsman style cedar wood home. It is clean and spacious with all amenities -- the broadband wifi is perfect for movie streaming and anything else you need to do. All kitchen utensils, dishes and pots/pans are there, the bbq works very well. The outside patio is gorgeous (with cute patio furniture) overlooking a private pond. The beds and bedding are all comfortable and of good quality, there are plenty of towels supplied. The main washroom rivals some of the fanciest ones we have had in expensive hotels (my wife has requested that shower be installed in our home :) ). Ron and Gwen are wonderful people who make sure you feel at home but are very sensitive to privacy needs and quietly disappear in the background. Our two daughters and niece (teenagers) enjoyed the upstairs loft and we all left feeling very good about our stay. Lastly, about two minutes away is Sharkeys Fish and Chips -- no review would be complete without mentioning that that may the best fish and chips I have ever had!! Thank you Ron and Gwen, and thank you for taking the time to show us around your lovely home as well!!

A treasure in the forest!

  • 5 of 5

The owners did a tremendous job accommodating our early arrival. The Carriage House was very up to date, had all the items that we needed and the layout was fabulous. The kitchen was very modern and suited our young family with a 2 year old. We were only a 5 mins drive from Roberts Creek Beach.
