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.

Tying a Knot in North Muskoka

There is always a warm welcome to be found at the Resorts of North Muskoka if you're planning a wedding.

Several of the resorts cater big-time to these special occasions -- Lumina Resort, Port Cunnington Lodge, Tally Ho Inn all come at once to mind. They have big gathering places, excellent chefs and spacious dining rooms to handle the biggest of crowds.

Here at Bondi Village, we are much smaller, and can only handle small groups, but what we do have is plenty of open space and cottages to accommodate guests who are attending the wedding from far afield.

There are people who like to hold their wedding at their family cottage, for example, with a reception at one of the very many places around that can host that -- there are Community Centres that can provide the ideal backdrop. Or Camp Dorset -- which can become so very lovely with a bit of personalized decorating.   For these, we offer the accommodation you may need for friends and family.

And you will not be able to match the scenery up here for providing fabulous photos to remind you of that magical day.

Some weddings "go big" -- the Indian Head Dining room at Bigwin Island Golf Course is one such spectacular venue. Guests arrive by boat, and what could be prettier than steaming in on the S.S. Bigwin in all your wedding finery?

Some prefer the more intimate location provided by one of the small local churches, chock full of history.  This one is in Dorset...

So here, to help get your creative juices on the go, we offer some of our favourite photos from weddings hosted here in North Muskoka.

  Megan, for example, who was featured on Say Yes to the Dress, Canada, walking down Main Street Huntsville in the middle of the antique car show -- we could hear her approaching the church by listening to the tootling of the car horns that saluted her!

There are as many venues as there are wedding ideas, so you are sure to find the one that is the perfect fit.  How is this for a backdrop?

Port Cunnington. Go beat that for a sunset!
Every season offers its own special charms for weddings.  And every wedding is as unique as the bride and groom at the heart of them.

 Spring, when all the trees are in blossom... Summer, well, summer. what more need we say?  Autumn is one of our favourites, as the colours in the trees complement the colours in the wedding party.

Paint Lake, in Dorset.

Winter -- that white background can be absolutely stunning. I've seen brides arrive by dog-sled, beautifully wrapped in white robes (the bride, not the dogs, although that too might be an option)

So go ahead and have a wonderful time planning your wedding day. And keep us in mind.

At Bondi, while we can only handle very small intimate wedding groups, but we can certainly help you out if you need accommodation!

And, of course, we'd love to welcome you home for your anniversary...

Our friends and neighbours at the resorts up here will be more than able to cater to your particular wedding plans.

Kristin and Jeff, Lumina Resort. It doesn't
matter if the vows are indoors or outdoors --
it's all lovely.
And everyone here will work hard to ensure you get your 'happy ever after'.
