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.

Today we went to Dorset, to enjoy the Community BBQ and complimentary cruises on the S.S. Bigwin.

Sailing on this beautifully restored more-than-a-century-old ship is a "Must Do" on the bucket list when you are here in North Muskoka.  With its electric engine, it slides silently across the waters of Lake of Bays, and is a dream to be aboard.

With me today was an old friend, Stacey Odlum, who now lives in France with her husband Emmanuel.  She was here for her High school reunion, and it has been such fun to have her staying with us at Bondi again.

 Taffy was also invited aboard, and was having fun channeling her inner Captain Jack Sparrow. That and being petted endlessly by the children on the cruise!

My friend Judy Van Clieaf who writes for What's Up Muskoka was on board as well -- one never knows, Taffy may make the local paper's page of celebrities!

The SS Bigwin is sailing all summer now.  During June, you can hop aboard for some of their special cruises, like the one to Bigwin Island for lunch.  During July and August they are sailing every Thursday from Port Cunnington Lodge -- appetizers and a cruise around Bigwin Island to be followed by dinner at the Lodge. Now THAT is a deal we intend to take part in!
