About Linwood House

Your Sunshine Coast Retreat Centre

Learn about Linwood House on BC’s Sunshine Coast, a peaceful retreat and guest house offering luxurious accommodations in a serene rainforest setting. Discover our commitment to providing a perfect escape for family gatherings, corporate retreats, and wellness getaways.

A sanctuary nestled on a private, forested 5-acre estate in the majestic settings of Roberts Creek on the Sunshine Coast. Referred to by one of our guests as a “forest cathedral,” our retreat centre promises tranquility, seclusion, and an intimate connection with nature.

Our Philosophy

At Linwood House, we believe in providing a serene escape that allows contemplation outside of day-to-day stressors, nourishes the soul and rejuvenates the spirit. Our retreat is more than just a place to stay; it’s an experience that fosters creativity, wellness, and inner peace. We aim to create a welcoming environment that feels like a home away from home, offering topnotch amenities combined with the warm, personal touch of our main host, Mark Bailey.

Our Setting

Situated just over a 15-minute drive from the Langdale ferry and close to the seaside towns of Gibsons and Sechelt, Linwood House offers easy access paired with secluded charm. The property features a blend of natural wonders from gardens and lush mature rain forest trees, and short walks or drives offering stunning ocean vistas, breathtaking waterfalls, and old-growth trees.

Guest Raves & Reviews: Discover What Our Visitors Have to Say!

Linwood House is beautiful and tranquil, set in serene Roberts Creek. Mark and Heidi hosted us for our small foundation retreat and it was the perfect place for us. They were very responsive to our needs and went out of their way to accommodate us. The landscape is beautiful as well, with the beach and small cafes very close-by. Mark recommended a catering company Nomadic Kitchen and they were excellent, also 5 STAR. This was our second year at Linwood and we will definitely return again. – Andrea C.
