My friends and I stayed at Frank's home for 3 days and 2 nights. We had a large group of 28 people, and we did not have any problem with the sleeping areas. It was not hard to find the home, and it was close enough to the highway. We truly enjoyed the home especially the large indoor pool, the volleyball area, and the large dining area. The home felt very welcoming and cozy. One of our friends have said that she felt at home as soon as she saw the sandy volleyball court. None of us were bored as there were so many activities that we could do in one place. Also, Frank is very courteous and responds fast on e-mails. I really appreciate his effort for making our stay at his home very enjoyable and fun. We are looking forward to our next years stay at Frank's home again.
Frank is a great guy who is genuine and laid-back. He allowed us to check in early and stay later than planned and helped us out with any thing to do with the house. It was a pleasure to have met him and stayed at his retreat. Definitely a great place for any occasion.
Excellent Property. Very clean with a fantastic indoor swimming pool. Located in a quiet and peaceful area.
Awesome place! You said that this place is unique in Canada. We certainly believe it as nowhere else would have been suitable for our Mom’s surprise retirement party. Thanks for giving us a place to celebrate this special moment in our Mom’s life. Hopefully we will come up with another excuse soon to head out to "Murphy’s Retreat”. Au Revoir! From Jen and Laurie and almost 35 other party guests. P.S A special thanks for your efforts in making the place “special mobility needs friendly”. Our grandparents couldn’t have been with us otherwise.
Another great stay at this fantastic place! We visited with adults and 13 kids and it couldn't have been better. The new bunk beds downstairs are great the kids loved them. Pool was fantastic as always and house clean as can be. Thanks again Frank!
We absolutely loved our weekend at Frank's cottage. There was over 40 of us and we had more than enough space. Huge kitchen table was amazing for feeding all the kids at once and ample fridge space for everyone's food and drinks. Pool, hot tub and volleyball court provided hours of entertainment for the kids and adults. Bunks are very sturdy and all have nice mattresses so they are comfortable for adults too. We had a wonderful time and would definitely go back! Frank was an excellent host, greeting us when we arrived and showing us how everything worked and coming back subsequent days to make sure pool was nice and clean. Thanks Frank Dominique
We had a family get together in Aug and booked this cottage for 3 nights. It is about 5 hours drive from Toronto (Much closer to Ottawa and Montreal - within 2 hours drive from both locations) but I must say that it was worth driving all the way for. It is located very close to Hwy 401 but far enough to make it feel like a cottage in a very quiet neighborhood. It has large and well-taken care off, front and backyard in addition to a long driveway (enough to park 10 cars). It has a great beach volleyball area (didn't end up using it) plus a play area for younger kids (they loved the model ship in the play area). The cottage is designed to accommodate 20 -30 people with enough space to have all sit at the dinner table and enjoy a family meal. Rooms are very clean and there is more than enough storage and fridge space (3 fridges), icemaker, coffee maker etc. In terms of entertainment, this cottage came with few 50 inch plus TV's and game consoles etc. plus a pool table, tennis table and a lot of toys for kids to keep them entertained. I can safely say that this is the best-kept and managed cottage we have rented in the last 5-7 years. Now for the best part, as mentioned in the advertisement, it has a large pool with a hot tub and tons of life jackets. We spent more than half our awake time in the pool (other half was eating enough to reenergize for next pool trip) Frank (owner) is a super nice guy and very responsive. He visited every day to check the pool water to make sure it was safe for us to swim. Thanks, Frank. When I initially saw the listing, I was a little scared to make the reservation as it looked like too good to be true but we are glad that we went ahead. One of the best family gathering we had in the last few years and the reason is the way this cottage kept us all together at one place rather than different groups running in different directions to keep them entertained. The only negative comment which I got from few in the group was that there are more than enough bunk beds to accommodate all but few more rooms will be a nice addition to this wonderful cottage.
We stayed for two nights for a weekend long bachelor party. The place was very clean and comfortably slept 21 full grown guys. The property is huge, and when the weather didn't cooperate it didn't matter because the house itself is so big, and of course the pool. The big screen tv in the pool room helped as well. Frank was a great host and would always respond within the hour to any question we had in the run up to the visit. The house had everything we need, towels for everyone, bedding dishes glasses, and three, maybe four, very large refrigerators. Two BBQ's and 2 ovens which were all put to very good use. Everyone was very impressed and I think a lot will be looking for a reason to book the house in the future. Also the beer store is only a 12 -15 minute drive away for when you run out of beer. Great place.
Every other year, we do a Christmas trip with our children and grandchildren. Including our elderly Mom and 2 nannies for the little ones, we arrived with 26 of us. What a great place!! The pool, of course, was a massive hit with everyone (and the hot tub, too). Kids slid down the hill behind the house, as well. Indoor entertainment was amazing and all of the beds were comfortable...seriously, all of them! Typically, with this many sleeping spaces, you are going to find that someone did not sleep comfortably but that was not the case. Dishes, towels and any other needs (paper towels, bathroom tissue etc) were in abundance. We were thrilled and are hoping we may make it work in another two years. Thanks Frank, for you care and Happy New Year!
Frank was great host, and the place was amazing. it has the largest indoor pool I have been to. The kitchen was equipped very well, 2 ovens and everything you need. It has 2 BBQs outdoor, they were great . I will definitely go there again
We simply love it here..
