About Linda Murphy

In 2013, as our three girls were then all off to university, we were living in Unionville, just north of Toronto. We became Empty-Nesters, moved up to this corner of Outdoor-lovers' Paradise, and we are now living the dream! Gord is a retired Biology and Photography High School Teacher, and I, Linda, am a full-time Realtor. We capitalize on the natural beauty of this area by enjoying skiing, hiking, cycling, swimming, beach-walking, photography, and tennis. Visitors may also want to add snowshoeing and snowmobiling to that list!

Linda Murphy purchased this apartment in 2013

Why Linda Murphy chose Collingwood

We fell in love with our chalet from the moment we first saw it! It is everything we always dreamed of, and worked hard for. Those who visit say they never want to leave. Just being on our property is good for the soul!

What makes this apartment unique

Nothing beats sitting on the back deck and watching the Jack Pines that surround our acre sway in the Georgian Bay breeze, or listening to the countless birds, or watching the fireflies at night, while the frogs and crickets in the forest sing. We also love being so close to the Georgian Trail for walking and cycling - a safe and easy non-car way to get into town!

Guestbook comments from the owner

Linda and Gord were great hosts! The apartment was huge, clean, comfortable, and had everything I needed. I was working in the area for two weeks, and came home every night to the driveway and path snow all cleared by Gord, and the same when I went to leave each morning. Linda frequently checked in on me just to ask if I needed anything. I LOVED the cozy fireplace! The location is great - so close to town, and in the country, where I went for walks with such nice scenery. I would be so happy if I could return to this beautiful chalet for a vacation sometime!

Great hosts and a great stay! Near to all that Collingwood has to offer, but quiet enough to relax. The fire pit was a big hit for us. The well-stocked kitchen and the abundant amusements (cards, games and TV) were appreciated. The birds and chipmunks were adorable.

Gord and Linda were so friendly, and had the right balance of helpfulness and privacy. Full marks for a very pleasant stay, and a desire to return!

Quiet comfortable Stay

We enjoyed our stay. Lots of room in the apartment and the kitchen was well equipped. Everything was very clean and comfortable. For us, the location worked well...close to hiking, beach, restaurants and scenic drives.

Our hosts were good about checking in with us and also allowing lots of privacy.

Our community is rich in history and culture, and we are extremely proud of our downtown Heritage Conservation District. We are situated on the shores of Georgian Bay, and our waterfront, beach, and mountain locations provide endless opportunities for four seasons of outdoor recreation activities and so much more!
