ABout Frank

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.

Why I chose Cornwall?

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.
