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.

Get Off your Wazoo!

It's almost that time again -- the Lake of Bays Association SILENT BOAT RALLY is coming up faster than you think, on July 12, in fact. For the third year, we are delighted to be hosting this event on our north beach. Private entrance off the Port Cunnington Road, lots of room for cars, canoes, boats, kids and bbq's... Shallow sandy beach, and we've even kept a spot at the Main Dock for Graeme to park his lovely Heather Belle (and thanks to Sue, who won a prize with this photo of the Heather Belle at Bondi's dock!)

We wait eagerly to see what boat Mark will be in this year -- two years ago, he brought his classic Dispro. Yes, indeed, Mark took a trip in his Dippy Dip Dip!
Last summer, he hoved into view with a real birchbark canoe.

For those who perhaps lack the selection available to Mark, Barry, El Supremo Organizer of this event, can help you organize canoe rentals right at the beach. All you need to bring is a swimsuit and enthusiasm!

This is a great day. People get out on the water under their own steam (or, in the case of the electric boats, under the steam in a battery) Canoes, kayaks, rowboats, paddle boats... everything quiet. It's a reminder that we don't need 600 hp on the back of the wake boat to enjoy the lake...

It's topped off by a great bbq, good fellowship, and the chance to wander about the property at Bondi -- toss a frisbee at one of the Golf Targets, spot the bluebirds nesting on the pasture fence, say hi to the pony... maybe see the spotted fawns (we now have at least 3. We think 4...)

And the ducks who nest in the corner of our bay, they appreciate the day as well! Not to mention the loons, and mergansers...

So don't forget to get over to the LOBA website and register for the day. GET OFF YOUR WAZOO AND IN YOUR CANOE!
