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.

The water is not the only thing that's up

 The ice left May 6. Not the latest it has gone out, certainly not the earliest. 

And the lakes are rising -- with the melt from Algonquin surging in.

But that is not the only thing that's up.  Flowers!!!

The second season

It's been said that there are two seasons in Canada... Winter.  And construction.
This year that means the Marsh's Falls bridge, on Hwy. 35.

Expect delays.

Rapids Run

 What a perfect time of year. No bugs, moose at the roadside, and rivers running.

Great Opportunity for a large family

Starting to dream of summer ?  Who could blame you after this cold April.

We've had some cancellations in the big 7 bedroom LODGE, so if you've got 10 or more people and want not only to get together but to be able to get apart next to the lake, then this is for you.

Four bedrooms have private bathrooms, 2 share an ensuite.  
On the main floor are two washrooms, an extra bedroom, a library for those you want a quiet place -- it even has a piano, a large fireplace lounge and a dining room facing to the lake, and a spacious kitchen with two fridges.
Downstairs is a rec room with tv, ping pong, pool table and foosball.

Outside is a gazebo, and a large bbq.
And down at the lake is a canoe, water trampoline, iceberg, and sand pile with playground. Peddle boats are free, and we have rental kayaks, paddleboards, fishing boats.

1200' of shallow sandy lakefront, a frisbee golf course, a free tube ride, and our ponies and free range chickens are all part of the package.

Available Friday to Friday for the following weeks.  June 29 to July 6, August 3 to 10, August 17 to 24 and August 24 to 31.

Come join us. Summer is calling.

February's end

What to do when the weather isn't going to let you ski? Well, skate... ice fish... golf?????  Snow was notably in short supply... but you could skate anywhere...


I've been away from here for far too long.  Not without excuse.  On Jan.  25th I had a stroke.

There weren't any of the usual markers; blood pressure and cholesterol were fine. "Stress", the doctors said.  "Sometimes it just happens."

Thanks for that.

I'm still recovering -- speech and the use of my right hand were impaired.  
And fatigue  -- I have never been so tired

But with good medical intervention and lots of family support, I'm on my way back.

Typing is still slow....

But I'll be back.  Stay tuned.

So Very Welcome to the World -- Piper Tapley

And here she is -- Piper Tapley.   David and Megan are thrilled to welcome this new soul into their hearts and their family.  She arrived at 5.15 a.m. on Dec. 31st -- after a long delivery.  All are well.

We cannot wait to watch this fifth generation baby at Bondi grow!
