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

Thanks! Glad you had a great time. Next time an Airstream. They are all ready now for your next trip. You can roast marshmallows and take a dip in the new 2 person hot tubs. 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

Thanks Jeff. It was great hosting you last month. We have now officially launched Coffee + Kitchen and all the Airstreams. Site has changed a lot since you were here. Come back soon. 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...

Thanks David. Come back soon. We launched the Airstreams last weekend and Coffee + Kitchen is now open and doing really well. I will personally make you a fresh squeezed gin and tonic with lime juice and cracked pepper. More

We went and stayed in a cabin. First, the most important thing was that the owner was super helpful and gave us a great, very detailed map of everything there was to do on the island. As it being our first time there, this was hugely important, because it gave us a ton of activities to do (which we had... More

Hi Erica, We purchased the former Inn on Pender in April 2015 and have done a complete makeover including a new Coffee + Kitchen urban style restaurant. Come back again soon. Curtis More

This last weekend was the second time my wife and I have spent the weekend on Pender Island and stayed at the Inn. We have taken rooms in the main hotel section both times (as opposed to the cabins). The room we had this time was very small/cramped. The furniture was crammed in where ever it fit and did not... More

The former Inn on Pender is now the WOODS on Pender and completely renovated and expanded Modern Camping resort. The Lodge you stayed in has been completely painted and the roof replaced. We also excavated and retopped all the roads, power washed and added new furniture and hanging baskets. All the toiletries and towels were replaced and upgraded. We also... More

We stayed one night in a lodge room during our summer Golf Island Adventure. The room was very affordable, clean and exactly what we needed to enjoy a stop over on Pender Island. There was a bar fridge, great WiFi and a shared hot tub and we would stay again. Maybe we would have the opportunity to try a cabin... More

My partner and I stayed in cabin #1, mid-week during peak season. The cabin was spotless and well-equipped. The bed was very comfortable. We especially enjoyed having our own hot tub. The cabins and adjacent hot tubs are very private. I had previously stayed in the Inn itself and had a very positive experience then as well. The owner is... More

Pre-picked this on account of previous reviews and price. Being on a cycle tour of Mayne, Saturna and finally Pender, I for one was glad my legs were pre-prepared for the uphill from the centre of North Pender to this place. The owner is quite a character and appears to have experienced every type of customer experience in his 23... More
