The most beautiful getaway to escape from reality and take a step back in time! Resort staff all went above and beyond in welcoming, feeding (oh the homemade bread!) and entertaining us from the time we arrived on the wharf in Garden Cove to the time we drove away with a wave and promise to return! Enjoyed a quick washer...

Do not conjure the typical image of "resort" when booking here. It is so NOT that...in a good way! It is kind of like visiting your dear aunt or grandmother. It feels like you've wandered back in time somehow to a simpler, kinder, less manicured and pretentious era. Much of that atmosphere is to the credit of Gary with his...

If you are looking for something that is very much a Newfoundland tradition this is the place to go. Good old fashion menu served by great people. Staff were always helpful. If you looking a quiet and restful place this is it. You get great value for your money and the best views.

We recently visited Woody Island with a family group. Excellent home cooked food with homemade bread and toutons second to none. Something for everyone, hikes, boating, bird watching -the bald eagles were very active and visible. Bring along some binoculars. On the hike we found a ragged fringed orchid which I have never seen before. After a supper of delicious...

Friendly hosts, very laid back schedule. Accommodations are solid, and the location can't be beat. Traditional NL entertainment is a high point. Food is authentic outport Newfoundland style, and is excellent. They pack in 4 meals (including a picnic on a beach), overnight accommodations, an extensive boat tour with history lessons, and entertainment - all in just over 30 hours....

We were first time visitors to Woody Island... From the moment you arrive in Garden Cove, until you return you feel the welcome warmth from all the staff! This is one of those trips you take that you can't help but feel you are truly welcome here. The food is excellent and the surroundings are great. The entertainment is very...

My partner and I spent 2 days and 1 night here and thoroughly enjoyed the resort and everything it offered starting and ending with the boat rides to and from the resort. The staff couldn't have been more friendly and helpful. They make you feel like you have known them forever. The resort takes you back to a time when...

Between the staff, the food and the entertainment, we couldn't of had a better time anywhere else. The beautiful scenery, the stunning water and the weather was perfect. Highly recommend this place to anyone who was/is considering a visit. Not only do you have to travel to the island by boat, you will also get a tour around the islands...

If you want a true Newfoundland experience, Woody Island is the place to come. Bring an empty stomach and your dancing shoes. The staff, food, and entertainment was top notch. True Newfoundland cuisine: homemade bread, pea soup, toutons (with molasses), and fried fish. The staff were friendly and so accommodating. Gary Pomroy, captain, guide and musician on the side was...

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
