From the minute we boarded the boat until we disembarked, the entire trip was fantastic...wonderful hosts, delicious food (especially homemade bread, pea soup, toutons, fish!!), authentic Newfoundland kitchen party, beach boil up, very clean accommodations, very friendly staff...even shopped at 'the mall"...perfect two days. Thanks for making this a memorable holiday! Can't wait to go back!

Recommended by a Newfoundlander friend and can't thank her enough. Wonderful time with many Newfoundlanders who were taking in the Resort for the first time. Our table assignment worked out really well - 2 Ontario visitors and 6 Newfoundland residents. Couldn't have been better - basic accommodation, good and plentiful food, WONDERFUL bread. Gary - you are a wonderful host...

This is a piece of Newfoundland you shouldn't miss. It's not luxurious at all, it's quite basic but it is so much fun. When you can say you had the most wonderful of experiences when one full day of your overnight was raining you know you've been to a special place. The group on our trip were mostly from Newfoundland...

We spent an evening at Woody island Resort. It was a fabulous and fun filled evening. We enjoyed the friendly staff, the very well run embarking and disembarking on the boat, with explanations of what we "were in for". Thank you Gary. There is lots to eat and the meals were wonderful. As we entered the building we were greeted...

Quit possibly the most authentic experience ever. Accommodations were exceptional, as were staff and meals. Possibly the best adventure. Scenic Vistas were unbelievable. Wonderful trails that transported you to another time and place. Exceptional on all accounts if you're looking for adventure, comfort and hospitality! Not to be missed.

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
The Resort is located on Woody Island in Placentia Bay, Newfoundland on the Avalon Peninsula. Woody Island Resort's uniqueness lies in the fact that you can experience just about every attraction that Newfoundland has to offer - all at one location. This quaint outport fishing village once boasted a population of 400 before government resettlement forces residents to relocate elsewhere in the province. Today Woody Island is home to mainly summer residents and their families who come back to pursue the fishery and relax in their former home village. Tourists also visit the island to take part in the many attractions that Woody Island has to offer including, breathtaking scenery, comfortable accommodations, delicious meals, Newfoundland "kitchen party", boat tour with beach picnic, and a wide variety of activities. ... more   less
