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.

Arrowhead Park Skating Trail rocks it out

 We are very lucky to have not just one fabulous Provincial Park on our doorstep, but two.

Come winter, Arrowhead Park comes into its own -- it boasts one of the best nordic ski networks anywhere in the Province, and is host to all kinds and levels of competition throughout the season. It also runs a great Learn to Ski program through their Jack Rabbit system.   If you are a skate-skier, or a more classic nordic enthusiast, there are trails here for you that are really fabulous.

But it is never content to rest on its skiing laurels, and last winter Arrowhead opened its Skating Trail. Yes, it is a trail, yes it does wind through the woods, yes it is different, and totally fun!  Nadine and little Zoe tried it out this week, along with the rest of the family, and it rated several thumbs up.

Hiking trails abound here as well -- which in winter become ski and snowshoe passages. Stubbs Falls is a particularly picturesque trail.  The Falls and the river provide plenty of opportunites to get the cameras out.

Come the end of the day, our guests were happy to come home to Bondi, to a warm fire, and a fantastic view across our Bay, watching the sun set.  This time of year the colours across the ice are pretty darn impressive.

Thank you Nadine, for sharing some of your vacation pictures with us!

When our guests take photos as wonderful as these, I wonder why I even bother to get my camera out of my pocket!

  1. In all the time I've had family in the area, I've been to Algonquin countless times. Never went to Arrowhead, strangely.
