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. www.bondi-village-resort.com

We often have groups here -- sometimes in the big Lodge that can sleep up to 18 people, sometimes in multiple cottages. This week, the Brodey family is enjoying their reunion. Now, while it's wonderful to be in a housekeeping cottage, able to 'graze' one's way through breakfast, lunch, afternoon snacks, not to worry about what is on the dining room menu that the kids' won't eat, or what time you have been scheduled for a meal, it's also lovely to be able to discard all responsibility for the preparation of that ever so important evening meal and be able to focus instead on the family around you, what everyone did that day, plans for tomorrow...
Problem solved for the Brodeys' with the entrance of Don Potter. Don arrives every afternoon, his van loaded down with dinner, and prepares a gourmet feast in the Lodge's spacious kitchen. Don IS Muskoka Catering. Be warned -- reading the sample menus on his website may produce dangerous drooling on the keyboard.
There is no shortage of great caterers up here in North Muskoka, and it's a wonderful way to go. You have control over the menu, the time of the meals, you never have to leave the beach to get dinner ready... For a group, it's a marvellous way to have a world-class meal served up right in your cottage, without any chopping, cutting, or baking on your part.
Don has been getting absolute rave reviews from our group, too. I'm just sad I didn't get any samples... (she said, smiling)
We'd love to hear from you. The experiences our guests have are precious to us. If you have photos you took at Bondi, we'd love to have those as well. You can email them to Nancy at firstname.lastname@example.org

We are very proud of Napster, our tail-painting cat, who uses his lovely artwork to raise money for charities. This lovely little creature passed away July 2015, but left a huge legacy, having raised over $12,000 for various charities through the sale of his artwork. That artwork, through prints and notecards, is still available. Click here to visit Napster's Blog and visit the gallery of his tail-paintings.
Now sold around the world, he was honoured to have his artwork sold around the globe -- he even has a print with the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge.
