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.

Visits from the Neighbours

Felonius Munk, or resident stable chipmunk, enjoyed a snack of squash. This is one of the hens favourite vegetables, so there was lots to go around.

We also have a mallard duck who has taken up residence in the large rain puddle by the chicken coop. She shares grain with the hens, and snoozes peacefully in the tall grasses, while her mate just hangs out and looks showy and impressive.

In Algonquin Park, our cousin Robin Tapley snapped this photo of moose, right along the side of Highway 60.

This morning, my friend Jacqueline, who lives on Little Whiskey Bay, Lake of Bays, had a visit from this beauty, right at her dock.  We've been hearing their beautiful and haunting call for about a week or so. Welcome back.

The deer were playing peekaboo outside my door with the cats -- neither species seemed to fully comprehend who the other was: there was great interest on both sides.   Deciding that the cats were, perhaps, predators, the deer retreated to the lake.

There is no shortage of wildlife on view here at Bondi Village Resort. And that is just the way we like it.
