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.

"Mush," is from the French, "Marche", and no, they rarely say it

Typical conversation with teenager:
'Where did you go?' 'Out' 'What did you do?' 'Nothing.' 'How was school?' 'Okay.' 'What did you learn?' 'Nothing.'

Ahhh, the joys of conversation... maybe you'd do better texting them.
Or, you could just enroll them in some programs that would make 'em sit up and take notice. Here's an answer to winter boredom, that gets five stars.

Nancy encounted the bus for the Greenwood College winter excursion parked at the Community Centre. Inside, the students were being prepped and organized. Outside, parked behind the bus, was the dog-sled truck. 8 sleds. What seemed like a entire collection of huskies.
Snow Forest Adventures was taking these kids into Algonquin Park for four days of dog-sledding and winter camping. Outward Bound also runs trips into the Park, staging from Dwight. Now, we've been dog-sledding. Even driven a team of four huskies. One word from Nancy, and those dogs did, well, pretty much whatever they wanted, but they did it at high speed, on a great trail, so who cared? What a thrill!

New conversation:
'Where did you go?' 'Algonquin Park.' 'What did you do?' 'Dog sledding! Wow!' 'What did you learn?' 'Can't even begin to tell you how much! It was EPIC.'

Craig Lawrence runs Snow Forest Adventures. He's based just down the road from us, in Utterson, and no, you don't need to be enrolled in any educational institute to go play with them. They're happy to set up part-day, full-day and overnight trips for anyone. Now, if winter camping is not perhaps the 'thing' for everyone in your group, you can always spend the day with them, and come spend the nights with us! Or the more adventurous can take off with the dog sleds while others relax in our cottages, a little snowshoeing, a little drink by the fireplace, a little watching the deer eat the nose off the snowman...

Winter here in North Muskoka really does have something for everyone!
