The Neighborhood

The Sunshine Coast is where the sea meets the mountains. A varied land and sea scape with much to offer. There are adventure tours, boat rentals, great cross country skiing, snowshoeing, and sledding in winter, hiking and mountain biking galore in summer. Farmers markets and farm stands, beaches and parks to explore. Even some old growth forest left: see it while you can, and help protect it. It's a special part of the world.

Getting around

There is a local bus stop right at the corner, and an express bus on the highway to get quickly to area towns, or the ferry.

Other Things to Note

Please note that there is a soaker tub only, no shower. Relax while bathing ;-) A full size fridge is in the mud room, there is a counter top convection oven, handmade and mismatched pottery funkiness, with a good chance of long grass and the occasional spiderweb. This is a family-friendly dog-inhabited shaggy round the edges property not a professional b'n b operation. The BBQ takes charcoal, let us know if you need a starter bag. There is a fire pit for campfires.

  • We had a fantastic (but too short!) stay at Eric's cottage in Roberts Creek. The cottage itself is just lovely. Plenty of room for two people to relax and unwind away from the noise of the city. We definitely want to come back in the summer to see the gardens in full bloom!

  • Eric's Farm was fantastic and very relaxing! a Creek running right through the property which gave such a beautiful ambient sound. Fantastic wood burning stove. Lovely little kitchen with funky dishes. It was a snowy weekend which allowed my friend and I to get cozy and and cuddle by the fire. Very comfortable king size bed, beautiful bathroom and tub! Thank you for hosting. It was such a wonderful experience and would love to come back in the summer when everything is blossoming!

  • My boyfriend and I had a fantastic time at Eric's cottage. It was exactly what we were looking for in a relaxing retreat. The cottage was very cute and cozy, we both loved the rustic feel and appreciated the privacy. The bed is huge and extremely comfortable. The bathtub is a great size and the fireplace was a nice touch. Joe creek is a short walk away and more powerful than I expected. I'd definitely come back here in a heart beat, and would love to stay again in the summer time.

    Response from Eric:

    Thanks Kelly for the helpful private feedback. It helps us improve the experience.

  • A quaint little space that's perfect for a long weekend getaway - for a writing and drawing retreat, or for a homebase from which to explore the nearby beaches and trails. We had a great time!

  • The Cottage was everything we hoped for. A perfect little haven away from the city. It was quiet and quaint. Fantastic location. The owner greeted us when we arrived and was available to our needs but otherwise we had the place and surrounding property all to ourselves. And it is a beautiful property with its own stream running through the woods. I will def return to "The Cottage" in the near future.

  • This is a quaint, clean and lovely hideaway on the Sunshine coast. I spent a few days up here with some books and enjoying the easy bike ride into Roberts Creek. The cottage is really nicely done but still retains a rustic feel. Great library too! Eric & fam were always around when something needed attention, but otherwise leave you to yourself to enjoy the cottage and the nicely wooded property.

    Response from Eric:

    hey thanks Jaspal! glad your first taste of Joe Creek satisfied. good luck with the new job!

  • I was not prepared for the beauty and feeling of remoteness at the "cottage" (my grandmother raised seven kids in a house not much bigger than the "cottage"). While I was minutes away from all amenities I rarely heard a car drive by and the sound of Joe Creek dominated whenever I stepped outside. The forest is genuinely beautiful and very nice for a stroll. Occasionally I would encounter a neighbour and they were always friendly.

    The cottage was more than comfortable and I spent many hours sitting in the big chair in the living room reading or just staring out at the trees. A very relaxing retreat indeed! I'll try to book here again next I return.

  • We had a wonderful stay - the location was great, the beds were comfortable and it felt really homely! Will definitely be back again when we're next on the Sunshine Coast!

  • The place was fantastic, and Eric respected our one request for privacy during our stay. The cabin is super cute, very cozy and clean. It's a little rustic, so if you aren't comfortable with that you might want to look elsewhere. For us, it was a perfect fit.

    My partner lost her necklace at the cabin, and Eric was kind enough to offer to send it to us by mail. Very thoughtful and appreciated.

    Overall a great time in a great place, thanks Eric!

  • Great little rustic cottage with a midcentury modern vibe. Lots of room to spread out. Lovely grounds and close enough to cycle to Roberts Creek amenities. Nice beaches nearby.

    We enjoyed our stay and Eric & Kendra were close by if you needed anything but totally respected your privacy.

    Had a great week.
