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.

Spring has Sprung Back

Today was hot and sunny. So hot and so sunny that I gave the horses their first bath of the season. Now they are clean and shiny. At least until tomorrow when they go out to roll in the mud again.

The snow that fell Tuesday melted fast.  The ice is moving away from the shore. That's good news for me -- on Monday it was in very close to shore, and puppy Taffy climbed up onto it to chase the ducks.  Once up there, she was scared to jump in to come back to shore, so kept running on the ice. Which is pretty rotten.  I had visions of making like an icebreaker in my trusty canoe to get out to rescue her, but luckily all ended well, and Taffy learned some valuable lessons about ice and cold water.

Once the ice is gone, the land warms up pretty quickly.  Thoughts turn to summer, when we'll all want to be IN that lake.  If you haven't booked your summer cottage with us yet, now is the time!  After all, one of these deck chairs probably has your name on it...
