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
Felonious Munk is our favourite stable chipmunk. He is a total felon, raiding the chicken food daily. He lives in the back corner of Jay Jay's stall, and we suspect he's quite the condo in there, judging by the amount of seeds he is stashing.
There's a deer in the field, hiding behind flowers. She ate the flowers we had out to direct guests to the wedding venue. Good thing she's cute and gets away with stuff like that. I saw her a few days before the wedding, and she looked ready to drop her fawn right then and there!
One of our guests held her wedding ceremony in our back field, complete with horses for the bride's party, and dirt bikes for the groom's... We had a beautiful sunny day, no rain at all, but some dramatic skies !
this is our broody hen, Hen Solo, who is just over the moon delighted that some of the eggs she has been carefully caring for the past 21 days have suddenly morphed into these tiny fluffy things that huddle under her wings. Since we have no rooster, the eggs were brought over for her by a friend of ours... we couldn't just watch her sitting there so hopefully on an egg that couldn't hatch. So now, this...
When Hen Solo started to go all broody, we were worried it would not end well. We have no rooster... But a friend came to her rescue, with 10 fertilized eggs from his own chickens. Good little Momma, she sat on those eggs diligently for 21` days, rarely coming off the nest even to eat or drink.
And on June 20th, Houston, we have lift off!!!! Hen Solo has chicks hatching right now. We are ridiculously excited ❤️
Long range predictions for the Toronto area are for a very hot summer -- and sadly many of the beaches are closed until (probably?) August due to the damage of the still on-going high water. But our lake and beach is wide open, we've got a nice breeze off the lake and lots of water for the family and kids! We have some vacancies still the week of, July 2nd; and July 15th. Come splash in our water!!!
We just got a few cancellations for the summer. :( Which means there is an opportunity to come and spend some quality family time here with us at Bondi Village. Two bedroom cottage, July 15 to 22; three bedroom July 29 to Aug. 5th. We've been making great family memories for four generations... come join our family.
We also have space for the weeks of June 24 to July 1st, July 2 to 9, July 15 to 22, And August 26 to Sept. 2 in three bedroom cottages. So there is SOME choice...

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.
