About Frank Murphy

I am a New Zealander who has lived in Canada since 1997. Lucky to have travelled to over 125 countries so ask me and maybe I have been to your country and home town.

Frank Murphy purchased this cottage in 2000

Why Frank Murphy chose Cornwall

It is a nice rural area with all the advantages of two of the larger cities in Canada. Ottawa, Canadas Capital and Montreal with its French influence. New York State in the USA is only 15 minutes away and is the gateway to the Adirondack Mountains(Americas Largest National Park)with Lake Placid a beautiful two hour drive from the cottage..The area is in the centre of a lot of Canadian culture and the St Lawrence River with all its water related activities is 5 minutes. away.

What makes this cottage unique

LUXURY HOLIDAY AT AFFORDABLE RATES.ASK ABOUT DISCOUNTS FOR SMALL GROUP( 16 guests) AND LOW SEASON ( Summer and public holidays excluded).One of the best features of this cottage is the space indoors. Never have the weather spoil your holiday again. Each season has its charm from swimming without the bugs to floating in the pool while a winter storm rages outside. Go jogging indoor as 25 laps around the pool is 1 kilometer and you won't slip as the whole area is covered with an all weather carpet. This cottage has the warmth of summer every day of the year. Outside on the properties grounds there are seasonal year round activities from ice skating to beach volleyball.A unique place to relax and be entertained.

Guestbook comments from the owner

Murphy's Retreat was a perfect location for our weekend getaway and birthday celebration. We could hardly get the kids(and adults!)out of the pool.Thankyou for the wonderful time.

Perfect 'Home away from home' for our Family Gathering

  • 5 of 5

Our family group (from BC; Alberta; Ontario; Quebec), enjoyed this facility during the period 07/11/2014 through 07/17/2014.

Just to repeat our many thanks to you Frank, for providing a wonderful & relaxing place for all of us to hang our collective hats for a few days. We would highly recommend your site to friends & extended family members, should they be in need of a fun filled & laid back atmosphere. Hoping to return again (maybe in the winter next time)....

Perfect for Company Retreat

  • 4 of 5

As a group of 16, there was plenty of space for all of us! Sleeping accomodations were very comfortable. Though the kitchen is relatively small, it worked well for our group as we had a rotating schedule for cooking and cleaning. It's in a great location - far enough out of Cornwall that it still felt like a getaway, but close enough that we could pop back into town to pick up groceries or supplies as necessary. Frank was very accommodating and a great host. We will definitely return!

Murphy's Retreat, Cornwall

  • 5 of 5

The pool was a big hit with our group of 20 ages 2 to 80. We all loved it. The space was adequate and very homey for our family getaway. The kids enjoyed activities such as go karting nearby as well as the st. laurence river beach. The retreat was well equipped and the pirate ship was alot of fun for the little ones. Badminton tournements were good fun. We are already trying to plan a return for next winter. Thanks alot Frank.

Great Family Vacation

  • 5 of 5

My 3 children, spouses, 6 grandchildren, my wife and myself had a great time. It is easy to get to many places from the cottage. The pool was a hit with everyone as was the volleyball and the use of the two grills was much appreciated. Although there is TV we were too busy having fun to watch.

Family Gathering

  • 5 of 5

Hi Frank, This is just to confirm that we appreciated your service and will certainly recommend your place to others. The children loved the boat; the older ones the volley-ball court and all definitely liked the swimming pool and the hot-tub. Some were glued to the x-box... Thanks again. God bless! Alfred & Edith
