It is a nice rural area with all the advantages of two of the larger cities in Canada. Ottawa, Canada's 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.
“Murphy's Retreat will remain for eleven children,their parents and grandparents the home of incredible memories. Meals, games, conversations and one insane, unforgettable climactic diving/water bombing competition in the pool. From holidays such as these we go forth into the world renewed.”With appreciation.
“The cottage had everything we needed. Came fully stocked with all the knickknacks which saves a ton of packing space. Frank was great, he responded within an hour of all our emails and had everything setup for our group of 18. Loads of space and the hockey rink and pool were great for activities.”Kyle B.
“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.”Happy Campers, Ottawa
