Bondi Resort Blog

Come on into our Blog for a look at the wonderful world we've got to share! With over 240 hectares (600 acres) of wilderness woodlands surrounding the resort, just ten minutes from Algonquin Park, we feature over 400 metres (1200’) of waterfront and beach; boat rentals; summer hiking trails winding through fields and woods; 20 km. of groomed cross country ski trails and snowshoeing in winter; access to nearby snowmobile trails for sledders, and a toboggan hill for the young at heart.

How to spend your Summer Vacation!

David Fowler, one of our long time guests sent us this -- written by his son Paul for an assignment in Language Arts.

As Dave described it to us, one suggestion was to write a description of a place to spend a holiday. Paul picked Bondi, and Dave thought we might enjoy the final result. Oh, my goodness, he could not have been more right! Thanks for sending this to us, and thanks to Paul for what he wrote!!!


Up North, a loon calls its lonely cry as a canoe glides across the smooth clear water, and the sun sets behind the island. On the shore children are toasting marshmallows over a crackling campfire, while others
finish a soccer game and begin planning the evening hide-and-seek game. All this and more, can be experienced at Bondi Village Resort on Lake of Bays in Muskoka.

Bondi is a place of fun for all ages. There is a variety of
hiking trails in the woods, where you can pick raspberries along your walk. You can expect to see deer and other animals along your nature walk. There are always canoes and paddleboats available for you after your swim in the lake. A sandpile sits on the shore where the weekly sand castle building contest takes place. Near the sandpile is a playhouse for the younger children. Children of all ages can be seen running around, playing games, and having a good time. Pick out your favourite fishing spot in the bay, or just drop your line into the water off the boat dock.

The watermelon seed spitting contest is the highlight of the wiener roast held on the beach every Tuesday evening. Another weekly event is the swim to the point. Meet at the dock on Thursday morning, jump into
the water and have a great time swimming. If you're a strong swimmer, you can swim the entire mile.

Even at Bondi it rains once in a while, but you can meet your friends at the barn to play one of the variety of board games available. Maybe you could take a five-minute drive to Henrietta's bakery and buy one of her cheese buns, cherry Danishes or other amazing treats.

Parents love Bondi's spacious grounds and safe environment. Their kids make new friends and learn how to get along with others. Bondi is a family-run resort, and the Tapley family will be kind and willing to help make your vacation unforgettable. Your cottage will be comfortable, clean, well-equipped, and free of TV!

"Seeing all my guests having so much fun is what Bondi is all about," says Brian Tapley, resort owner. Nancy Tapley will be happy to teach you about stars and watch the Northern Lights with you after sunset.

Book your vacation soon because many satisfied families return every year. Some have been coming for over 30 years and a few who came as children now watch their grandchildren play at Bondi.
