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. www.bondi-village-resort.com

We woke up this morning to find over two inches of slushy, icy snow. Once again, a blanket of gleaming white dressed the place up. Except that right about now, almost through April, the only white we're keen to see is probably on the Royal Wedding Dress...
It is pretty... we have to give it that much. This is the spring at the edge of the property, from which Springside cottage takes its name. Taffy and I went looking for Spring... with no success. The forecast for the Easter weekend, on the other hand, is talking about temperatures soaring up to 17 degrees. That will melt this, and how!
This year, we seem to be cycling through all four seasons on an almost daily basis. The calendar seems just a little bit confused.. is it November? Is it April?
This has been going around on the net. And, for once, it's not only pretty funny, it has some smidge of truth within.

Season "Spring" cannot be located. The season you are looking for might

Please try again.
We're game to Try Again. Tomorrow, I'm taking the snow tires off my car. That, if nothing else, should encourage the weather to moderate. I hope!
In the meantime, if you're heading to Muskoka this weekend, pack in layers. The lakes are still icebound, there will be no boats out there. Swimming is definitely out. You'll want waterproof boots because the woods are wet.
On the other hand, you'll not be bothered by flies, you will get to see moose while driving in the Park, and bird watching in the spring delivers new birds every day.
Don't overlook our specials for COUPLES! As well as families and groups, we offer great deals for couples looking to just get away.
You can check our availability on-line. We work hard to keep this current, but it may lag actual bookings. And it may not be 100% accurate...
We do have vacancies throughout July and August, but not that many... so you should scoop up yours! In fact, there are only about nine vacancies left for this summer!! We've got your cottage waiting, but you should call now!
We much prefer to keep the personal touch, and to discuss your booking the 'old-fashioned' way, directly, person to person! This helps us ensure that we've got your booking just the way you want it.
1 888 300 2132 or 705 635 2261 or email us. We've got your cottage ready!
Changing the Season
August is on the doorstep. We currently have no vacancies until September, and our guests are enjoying the lake, the calling loons, the quiet times and all the activities that go with a summer here at Bondi Village. Get out of the city, restore your soul...
This means that we are now accepting reservations for two night stays and weekend packages during September and October -- the fall colours are astonishing, and on our own 600 acre property, there are so many walking trails and lookout views that there's no need to battle traffic into the Park just to see the beauty! Algonquin is always amazing, but during high colour season, best seen mid-week. There are so many other wonderful places around where you can enjoy the autumn without the congestion of the road, and we are happy to direct you to them.
We have great deals during the fall season, for couples, up to small groups of 18 people.
And don't forget Winter -- we've got vacancies for Christmas! We'll provide the tree, and you bring the family.
We've got a fantastic place to gather, enjoy the scenery, relax by a fire, and spend time with family and friends. Whether a quiet couples' getaway, or a family reunion or a club outing , we've got your cottage waiting.
We'd love to hear from you. The experiences our guests have are precious to us. If you have photos you took at Bondi, we'd love to have those as well. You can email them to Nancy at email@example.com

We are very proud of Napster, our tail-painting cat, who uses his lovely artwork to raise money for charities. This lovely little creature passed away July 2015, but left a huge legacy, having raised over $12,000 for various charities through the sale of his artwork. That artwork, through prints and notecards, is still available. Click here to visit Napster's Blog and visit the gallery of his tail-paintings.
Now sold around the world, he was honoured to have his artwork sold around the globe -- he even has a print with the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge.
