We on Pender are pretty used to seeing new restaurants. We all enthusiastically attend a few times, raving about the quality of this or the taste of that, but when the novelty wears off, the restaurant in question falls off the map and business from locals declines. The guys who run WOODS are creative and enthusiastic. They have made both... More

The people are incredible welcoming and so helpful. The food and rooms are lovely. It's in a perfect location for hiking around the island and seeing the sights. The staff couldn't do more for you, bending over backwards to make our stay perfect. Absolutely loved it, cannot wait to come back, if staying on pender and not at woods you're... More

It is obvious that David and his partner are trying to make this destination one where everything is perfect. They bend over backwards to ensure the experience is a great one even to the point of offering to pick up those bikers who can't make all the hills on the return to the camp! The location is perfect, within a... More

Recently had the pleasure of staying at this superb new resort Woods on Pender. Booked an airstream that came with a cute hot-tub and a hammock set in the trees. Awesome view across the ocean. The hosts were exceptionally helpful with everything. The new restaurant Coffee+Kitchen had by far the best breakfast on the island and a great lunch and... More

We booked our rooms last year and received notification that the ownership had changed since we booked. We were expecting pretty rustic accommodation but were pleasantly surprised by the upgrades which have already been done by Dave and his staff. The restaurant is lovely, nice to be able to sit outside to enjoy the extremely creative menu. Breakfast was speedy... More

What a fantastic holiday! My husband and I stayed at The WOODS for three nights. The newly owned and renovated WOODS is sophisticated yet still has a very warm and cozy feel. The food is top quality. We loved going to the Coffee Kitchen each day for great drinks and great snacks. The Customer service was excellent. David took care... More

We recently had the opportunity to travel to the Northwest and spent 3 days at the new WOODS on Pender! It is a new jewel in the small island in the Southern Gulf Islands between Vancouver Island and the mainland. We stayed in a cedar cabin that was roomy and well equipped, but they also have several Airstream RVs positioned... More

The reviews listed here for Woods on Pender are for the completely different, now closed Inn on Pender Island. The Inn has been closed for months, property has changed hands, been redeveloped & opened as a completely different business. The Woods on Pender should NOT be listed under the now defunct Inn & Memories Restaurant. None of these reviews are... More

Thanks for your support. Has been crazy looking at all the reviews that have nothing to do with the new brand and resort we have created. Hopefully with enough support, Trip Advisor will recognize we are in fact a different place and shouldn't be prejudiced by former reviews. The requests they have made to wipe them out are insane and... More

It was great staying here! Beautiful setting in the trees set among the outstanding nature of the island with a short hop to all the amenities you could ever need. Very peaceful spot and nights on the deck star-gazing were awesome. Looks like there are some exciting changes coming with amazing airstream trailers arriving on site. Will definitely be back...
