The Farm Studios-Garth "GGGarth" Richardson

A “lived-in” experience – The Richardson’s family music collection is on full display at The Farm Studios. From platinum records to Juno awards, there’s also one-of-a-kind photographs and signed lithographs – something to discover around every corner.

The Farm Studios embodies a relaxed, extremely comfortable and well-appointed atmosphere where you can truly let loose and feel at home.  

Choose the level of service you would like – The Farm Studios is flexible. Your experience could be fully catered, or you may want to immerse yourself into the woodland setting and cut your own firewood. We welcome your family should you want to spend your non-working hours building beautiful memories.

The possibilities are endless.

Band House

This rustic house is situated upon two levels, with sleeping quarters upstairs and plenty of living space all around. The upper level has two comfortable bedrooms, each with a queen bed. The common area has a large writing desk, a deep-set Montauk sofa, and two twin beds. Downstairs, you will enjoy a wood-burning stove for those colder nights, a fully-equipped kitchen, complete with dishwasher, a dining and living area with two sofas, a large television with stereo sound, full cable, Apple TV (with all the fixins’) and wi-fi. Should you choose to relax in your housecoat, the entire Band House is wired back to the Control Room with Focusrite Rednet Pro, so if inspiration hits you, you don’t even have to leave the house to record your next hit. 

The front door opens to a large covered lounge with a fire pit, bbq, outdoor sectional and a wood-burning Scandinavian style hot-tub.

The main floor has a large wood-burning fireplace and is furnished with a large sectional sofa in the living area, a concert grand piano with a view to the forest and sea (yes, you can record here too), a newly renovated kitchen with high-end appliances and a large dining area. The accordion doors open to a deck and wrap-around terrace with bbq facilities, fire pit and plenty of sun-bathing opportunities – or dancing in the rain if that’s your thing. 

Upstairs, there are three levels showcasing a spa-bathroom with a large soaker tub and enclosed rain-shower area, three bedrooms, each with a king bed and a fourth bedroom on the highest floor with four twin beds.

Outdoor Amenities

The Farm Studios boasts amazing views of the Georgia Straight, as well as mythical rainforest surroundings. There are two hot tubs: one large jacuzzi, which can “legally” hold eight people, which is off the Engineer’s Cabin and Producer’s House, and a four-person wood-burning Scandinavian-style spa is right by the Band House. There are plenty of open areas to sit in, a large garden and a massive clearing where bonfires are held on the regular (except in the summer months). 

Each dwelling has its own bbq area, fire pit and large deck, all with plenty of space to lounge and relax. Day or night, these areas are inviting and can be an alternate place to work when you need the forest air to provide clarity.

COMING SOON – Spa facilities. The Farm Studios will soon have a building dedicated to spa services – a steam room, as well as treatment area to pamper our clients. The spa will also have a gym area complete with Peloton, Echelon Reflect workout mirror and a rowing machine.

chill out and about

Although The Farm Studios is secluded, it is by no means isolated. The Sunshine Coast has something for everyone, all close by. The epicurean has much to do, from visiting craft breweries and distilleries, to gourmet eats and especially succulent local seafood. If food and drink isn’t your thing, nature activities are magnificent – breathtaking beaches are less than 10 minutes away (oh yeah, and all up the coast), and nature trails abound, full of flora and fauna that will invigorate the foggiest of minds.
