Winter

Winter transforms Bondi into a fairyland. This picture, taken in early winter, just before the Lake of Bays froze over, shows the view from the office - the boats are gone from the main dock and we are busy preparing our cross country ski trails in anticipation of winter’s fun! Snowmobile trails link to our property, and we also have a skating rink, right on the lake, the way skating was meant to be! Our toboggan hill provides lots of thrills too - or you can just relax inside by the fireplace, enjoying the view from your cottage window!

Winter 15 km Groomed Cross Country Ski Trails - Snowmobile Trails Our Housekeeping Cottage Accommodations are designed for Year Round Comfort

Winter Activities at Bondi Cottage Resort Muskoka · Ontario · Canada 705-635-2261

A combination of latitude and altitude extend the winter season in Muskoka, Ontario. While areas farther south cope with slush and drizzle, we can usually count on good snow conditions from Christmas through late March. Winter enthusiasts find lots of ways to use this snow, ending the day's activities in front of cosy fires in their private cottage. 15 km of well groomed cross-country ski trails begin right at your door, and in summer serve as hiking trails. Ski rentals are available nearby. For snowmobilers, we maintain a trail that links with hundreds of kms of OFSC maintained trails in the area. Downhill skiers are close to nearby centres.

Cross Country Skiing - Groomed Trails
Start skiing right from your cottage door! These skiers, in front of the Office and the six bedroom self-catering unit called the LODGE, can choose from over 20 km. of groomed, track set trails. There's something for every level of ability, and you can pick and choose your route. No waiting around at the car for the rest of the group to be finished, either - instead, you can beat them back to the warm, comfortable cottage - and be waiting with your feet up in front of the open fire, hot drink in hand, admiring the view from the window! Find your own comfort level - and then get back out there on the trails again!

Skating
We maintain a flood lit rink near the office. Sometimes, if lake conditions are right, you can skate on the lake too!

Our family has been here since 1905, and we are the third generation to own and operate Bondi Village.

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 in winter; access to nearby snowmobile trails for sledders, toboggan hill and skating! Fall colours are spectacular - a walk through our working maple sugar bush rewards the hiker or birdwatcher with unparalleled photo opportunities. The sugar bush is also popular in spring, when the sap is running! During the summer, our large garden provides fresh produce for our cottagers, too! Our cottages are widely spaced for privacy and to preserve that “uncrowded” feeling. All are modern, with electric heat, and fireplaces, fully equipped kitchens and three or four piece bathrooms. We are open year round!
