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.

Sparring Partners

It's very late into October, and we've been enjoying some incredible weather.  Not many guests at this time of year, true, but those that were here were having a great time.

Thank you Kevin for the photos of you and Eric canoeing (all the way to Bigwin Island and back!) and hiking.

And -- how much fun to be able to watch the young bucks sparring right outside the cottage door.  Wow.  That's something you don't get to see every day.

In the October Swim

October 22. Seriously? Our guests arrived today and headed straight to the lake ! And who could fault them? What a glorious day.  Amy and Carrie stuck to the shallows, Michelle basked in a Muskoka chair, but Rob, well, he went for the gusto!

Checking it Out

October 22, mid-day, just checking out the neighbourhood... He's wearing a radio collar, so he's (or she's) one of the Algonquin Park study wolves.  This fine fellow was trotting down the road by Chateau and David and Megan's place, just past Bondi.  Thanks Mike Bechtel for capturing the moment

Oct. 18, Young Bucks

The young bucks this morning near the office.  They spar for a while, then decide to be friends again and eat some apples together... Then they spar again. Watching them is so interesting.

Oct. 17, Surfs Up!

Surfs up on Bondi beach!

Oct. 17, Light Above, Seeds Below

Out for a walk in the clear evening air, looking up for the light, and down for the seemingly endless maple keys on the ground. 🍁

Oct. 16, Moments

Some photos sent to us by Douglas Crosbie, who was here recently in the Lodge with a group. Sunset, the young buck, mergansers snoozing in the sun, and an end of summer canoe... Thanks so much.

Oct. 13, A Change in the Weather

Weather forecast says it's going to be wet. Doesn't mean it won't be beautiful. Although at times it might be best seen through a window

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"
