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.

Third Time's a Charm

One of our young guests, bringing home dinner!

For three years straight, the Travel Editors at National Geographic has named Muskoka as the top travel destination.

In this most recent article, Top Ten Things to do in Northern Ontario, you'll find paddling Canoe Lake in Algonquin Park and staying at a cottage  in Muskoka as the TOP TWO.

Who are we to argue with the National Geographic? A classic cottage in Muskoka, and a day spent  in Algonquin should be at the top of everyone's summer list.  We will, however, disagree with one thing...

We would suggest ditching the AirBnB route and instead come and stay at one of the Resorts of North Muskoka -- and with a little shameless self-promotion, stay with us at Bondi Village Resort. You know what you are getting, and there are so many more amenities when you stay at one of the smaller family-oriented cottage resorts. 

Making friends

 Our cottages are widely spaced for privacy on our large acreage -- in fact, there's more room between our cottages than there is with many private cottages around the lake.

Last one in!!!   This is a perfect way to enjoy family time!
We offer the classic Muskoka cottage holiday, with the benefit of on-site staff (so if there is a problem, be it with the fridge or the plumbing we are here to help fix it)  and we look after the linens, the garbage collection, and make sure you have potable water in the cottages, not to mention the opportunity to make lots of friends (just turn the kids loose at the water playground with all the toys) and make connections and memories for a lifetime.  

We have hiking trails, a frisbee golf course, water trampoline, climbing iceburg, playgrounds, swings, basketball, volleyball and badminton, ping pong, shuffleboard, horseshoe pitch -- not to mention actual horses standing in those horseshoes (and one wonderful little pony to make friends with the smallest members of your own family.)  We have an organic garden, free range chickens providing organic eggs to delight your menu.  Canoes, kayaks, paddleboats, fishing boats and more -- plus we are on site to help teach you to waterski or windsurf.

We'll host you on the beach with our get-together cookout and bonfire, take you out to learn about the Night Skies, teach you how to howl for the local wolf pack (and what to do when they howl back), introduce you to the local wildlife, and make sure you know the best places to go to shop for the unique, and the best the area has to offer.
Whether you canoe, kayak or prefer the SUP,
there is magic in being on the Lake of Bays

So this is the biggest difference between us and the AirBnB sites -- We do the work, and provide a long list of amenities. You bring the family...

Oh, and that 'thing' about putting in to canoe on Canoe Lake? We'll be happy to help you arrange a day trip with an outstanding outfitter, Algonquin Park Adventure Tours,  who will make sure that even if you have never been in a canoe in your life, you have the most amazingly wonderful day.

We still have some vacancies for the coming summer. Give us a call! 705 635 2261
