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.

Still in the Swim!

October 10, 2017. let's go swimming... Hulene and James show the way.

Pics from Around Bondi

Some of the lovely photos taken this week by Sue Hadden-Ion while she and Jim are here with us

Oct. 9, what a weekend it was

The end of an outstandingly beautiful Thanksgiving weekend. Never mind that guests are still swimming , we are beginning to get ready for what comes next. David and Brian put the canoes away ... and the deer came in to eat the windfall apples

Giving Thanks

Some of the things we're thankful for -- David and Mike ... and new siding on Blackberry

Oct. 8. Colour is Late this year

The play of light, and the soft sky make colours really "pop"

Oct. 7, Harvest Moon

Lovely photo of tonight's moon, rising over Bondi Bay, taken by our friends at Lumina Resort

Oct. 6. This tree has all the colours

Sept. 29. Pileated woodpeckers

The Pileated woodpeckers are enjoying 'feast days' in the chokecherry tree in front of Wheelhouse cottage. Gorging on the berries, and making the air resound with their calls.

Fish, and Dreams, and Sparkle

Whether you want to be active and chase a fish or sit in the sun and watch the lake sparkle, we've got your space

Bounce!

September 22. The lake at 75 degrees is warmer than it was most of the summer. After a day canoeing in Algonquin park, our guests ( the Old Salts Canoe Club) relaxed at the beach

Sept. 21. Heat.

Well, it took until September, but we are experiencing a heat wave. The lake is warm, the leaves are colouring up,the hiking is at its best, canoeing is a joy... and we really think you should be coming up for the weekend...

Sept. 18, S.S. Wenonah on the water

The s.s. Wenonah on a sunset dinner cruise. If that's not on your bucket list it should be. Brian took the photo last week. #realmuskoka

The view from Anchor cottage

Heather, from her perfect viewing location in Anchor cottage, did a much better job of catching our lavender sunset last week. 

Ragged Moose

Sept. 17.   At this time of year, the deer and moose are dropping the velvet from their newly minted antlers and racks... It is itchy and annoying -- they rub the antlers against low shrubs to help get the velvet off. And they look pretty darn ragged... Gerry Webb got this image of a young moose in Algonquin this week.

Colours are starting, Sept. 15

the colours keep coming... Welcome autumn, and the glorious show the trees provide. We added some colour of our own, provided by some of our group of fishermen that are here this weekend.

Sept. 15. The heat wave begins.

Trying to get some photos of the wall of mist across the bay this morning. Another glorious sunny hot day.

Come and Give Thanks at our places

A great photo of both our friends at Lumina Resort (in the foreground) and Bondi Village Resort at the end of Bondi Bay. We've got housekeeping cottages open at Thanksgiving too... not many, but a few. Lumina, with their meal plan and great chef, or Bondi, where you have a well equipped kitchen (and fresh organic eggs from our hens  ) whichever is your favourite way to get away, we've got the colour, and the quiet.  Both our resorts have limited vacancies for the Thanksgiving Long Weekend, which is fast approaching.

Getting in the Swim.

His name is Dave but watching him in the lake today we are tempted to call him "Bob" 😜. At 74 degrees / 23 c on September 14, it's warmer than it was in August

Tricks of the Light

Early morning dew and floating colours on Sept. 13.  Hard to catch these, with the water washing over the leaf, and the sun sparkling the cobwebs...  

the Song I Sing...

A wake up call from the baby Roo.  (We are calling him Kanga Roo-ster).  He has been working on his vocals, and is ready to sing you the song of his people.
He will be looking for a forever home in a few weeks time.  An Americauna, he carries the genes to help his hens produce 'easter egger' coloured eggs (in blues and greens).  He's handsome, and very well behaved...  

So we are hoping he will find a perfect home.  We'd keep him, but then we'd have sooooo many little chicks, where would we put them all?
