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.

Woodsmen All

 This is the time of year when the BMD (Bondi Maintenance Dept.) heads into the managed forest woodlot to start cutting trees.

These trees are the ones that need to be removed for the overall health of the forest -- sadly, in this instance, a lot of beech that are succumbing to the beech blight.

That wood warms you so many times. First when it is cut, then when it is split, then when it is piled, and finally, at long last, when it is burned in the fireplace.

Rank has its privileges. Brian has seniority -- so he
got the tractor. Dave got the chainsaw.
While David and Brian will be toasty warm throughout the entire process, our guests get the luxury of cutting to the chase, and going right to the part about snuggling up next to a fireplace on a cold wintery evening!
