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.

Christmas Card Ready

 We look Christmas Card Ready today. The snow came in with a big rush, and since the ground is now thoroughly frozen, it should stick around.  Great news for our Christmas and New Years' guests who are looking forward to playing with the white stuff!

Even the bay is freezing over fast.  It will need some more cold weather to make any ice up here safe for people -- or snowmobiles! Every year somebody jumps that gun, and often discovers that thin ice is truly bad news, so just a reminder that even if the water looks to be frozen, you must KNOW BEFORE YOU GO.  Unless you are sure of the ice thickness, just stay off.  That goes for dogs, too, Taffy...

There are so many ways to enjoy winter. Some folk like to go out and try to catch snowflakes on their sleeves, mittens, tongues -- or noses.  Taffy demonstrates the latter technique.

Other folk prefer to spend a lot of time outside -- the best way to ensure you are going to enjoy an outdoor experience in winter is to be appropriately dressed, in several layers.  Abby and Bailey demonstrate this for us, stylin' in their winter rugs.

Skiing is popular -- we are hoping to have our ski trails open soon. Hidden Valley Highlands Ski Centre IS up and running, with almost every hill open and the terrain park very popular as well.  Snowshoeing, and tobogganing -- they are all good to go.

And for those who prefer to simply look at the fantastic view  and like their winter to be on the other side of the window pane, while they are comfy by a blazing fire... Achmed demonstrates the correct technique for that as well.

So winter is here, and Christmas is here, and the apocalypse is NOT here and all is good.  Merry Christmas everyone -- we are looking forward to our guests arrival, starting this very weekend, and we still do have some vacancies between Christmas and the New Year.

Winter will be with us for a while -- if the Christmas season is too hectic, perhaps a relaxing weekend at Bondi Village later in the winter would be just the thing to let you unwind.

    Achmed looks entirely too comfortable.
