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.

Quiet Places

This is one of our walking trails, winding down by the lake at the edge of our property.

We have over 20 km. of trails -- some are only open in the winter, because they cross our black spruce bog -- lovely when it's frozen, but a trifle wet this time of year. A heaven for our froggy friends!

About 15 km. are open year round, leading to the Mountain Lookout, up through the Sugarbush, down to the River and the Beaver Ponds, through the open Pioneer Fields behind the resort -- which this time of year are blossoming with wild strawberries, so unbelievably sweet it is worth hunting down the tiny little critters...

Speaking of 'critters' -- our free ranging hens are restful creatures to watch, and hilarious in the bargain.  The puppy is still trying to learn that we do not require her to retrieve chickens, but on the whole they are co-habiting well.
And the gardens -- what a riotous joy of colour they are providing. I wish the iris would remain in bloom all summer long (along with the lilacs, which are already done for the season)

We have guests here this week who have been enjoying just walking by the gardens admiring the flowers... and why not -- this peony, just about to open after a rainshower, is something to soothe any soul.

Be it hiking, wildlife/bird watching, spending time out on the water or just enjoying the peace and quiet, there are places and spaces for all of it here.
