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.

Sunset at the Solstice

 You have to wait a bit, because the days are so long... but the sunsets are lovely

It's Summer!

Butterfly on clover -- taking it easy...  Did I mention that we still have some vacancies this summer?

There's 'littles' in the barn!

 The swallows have hatched!  It's noisy at that end of the barn. 

And we have four new chicks! They look like chipmunks, all striped... (did Felonious Munk have anything to do with this???)

Last week, the spruce and pine bloomed!

Every year the spruce and pine release vast quantities of pollen. In the air it looks like smoke billowing from the trees. Settled in the lakes it looks like this. It's natural and harmless but does make a bit of a mess. Life tends to be like that. It's good news for fish and frogs and water bugs who feast And it's soon gone

New Toys!

New water toys!  Joining our other water trampoline and iceberg... wouldn't you rather be at the lake???

All that Blue!

The first monarchs showed up this week
They are still much more rare than they used to be -- keep that milkweed in your gardens, people. The swallowtails, however, are plentiful!


The wildlife around here never rests which means there’s always something for you to see, and spring is definitely no exception! This baby fawn was spotted sunning itself by one of our wood piles while waiting for its mother. And this snapping turtle is the first one to nest at Megan and David’s house this year! #muskoka #wildlife #explore #cottage #vacation

The Lion's Club answers the call

There are new Public Washrooms in Dwight.  An excellent addition to the beach, and the hamlet in general.  And they are lovely. 
Full marks to the Lion's Club, who undertook this project for Canada 150, and not only fundraised but pitched in with 'bricks and mortar' to make it happen

The Bigwin sails Dwight Bay

Historically, she never sailed here -- her "beat" was Bigwin, and Norway Point, but this year we are w
elcoming the S S Bigwin to Dwight 
She's sailing from Dwight on Tuesday -- same day as the farmer's market.
Another great experience, just waiting for you to come aboard.


The iris and the corn are coming along and my heart is happy because the bluebirds are back ❤️

It's Blooming Well Spring

Tiny perfect flowers...woodland violets, strawberries, trilliums... it's so beautiful out there

The rhythm of the seasons

With the warm weather here we’ve been putting a lot of time into our organic garden! Everything has been tilled and the potatoes and corn have been planted! Now we wait...  And of note is that the seeder Brian is using to plant the corn was the original from Bondi in the early 1900's!
