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.

Wearable Art

While the boys were outside skiing, skating and sliding, the girls were gathered in one of the cottages to view the lovely bead jewellery created by Larissa and her friend Galina.

We're always impressed by the amount of talent our guests have! We have several of Larissa's silk paintings in one of the cottages.

During the summer months, we host art shows by our guests, including Jean Rosati, who also shows her work at the Dwight Library. We really enjoy having artwork on display that has been created by our friends and guests. All the cottages have unique pieces on display.

While we can't display jewellery in the cottages, there were certainly no shortage of necks, wrists and ears on tap today to model the pieces, and cheque books were seen in the land.

These are unique, one of a kind, hand-crafted and extraordinarily lovely pieces or wearable art. It was a joy to see them! And, it will be a continuing joy for those who wear them.

There is something really special about knowing the artist, whether its jewellery or paintings or books. We are very privileged to have so many talented people visit us.
