“A taste of Newfoundland”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 25, 2012

So relaxing and lots of fun: mummers, music, dancing and lots of good food. The staff are warm and friendly. The accommodations are simple but clean with comfortable beds and great showers.
We only stayed for the weekend and I felt like I had been on holiday for a week!!

Just back from celebrating my father's 60th Birthday at Woody Island, This was our scond trip in less than a year. Beautiful weather, great food, music and friends nade this such an enjoyable weekend. All I can say is that if when you visit, if you don't have a good time, it's not the staff's fault!! Diane, Michelle, Gary and all the rest of the staff go above and beyond. Great place to go and relax. Can't wait to go back again in September.

Myself, husband and Mother visited Woody Island a few years ago and what a time it was. Lights out at night, flashlights handy, lots of great home cooked Newfoundland's favorite meals, great staff and a wonderful opportunity to meet people from different locations of the world. Great entertainment at night with the wonderful Kitchen Party.

Just spent my Birthday on June 2, 2012 in Woody Island! If you love NL, go to Woody Island and you will just step back in time to your childhood memories in so many ways! The staff are next to none, from Gary to the cooks! They are such a relaxed, friendly, and wonderful bunch! They really do aim to please. I went with a friend to celebrate my birthday as I had visited Woody Island many years ago and wanted to go back. We met up with a group of ten from NL, who we are now friends for life I'd say! What a wonderful group of people to spend a couple days with and party hearty!! If you want to enjoy Nl home cooking, this is the place for you and if you love a boil up on the beach, you won't be dissapointed! We also shared our weekend with a group of nurses who graduated together 26yrs ago, and they also loved to party and have a good time. We also got to enjoy the company of a most awesome little 2yr old, she seemed to love every minute, and I could have taken her home with me. If you are thinking about going to Woody Island, do it, very inexpensive trip, with plenty to see and do, in a short time and you will not regret it?

We spent a weekend at Woody Island Resort in October 2011 with a large group. The weather was glorious, the rooms simple but clean and comfortable, food was plentiful and hardy, the staff were great. Lovely walking trails and scenery. The staff couldn't have been better and were very attuned to our needs. It is not a luxurious resort, but If you're looking for a relaxing weekend away with typical Newfoundland hospitality, this is the spot.

From the get go when you get on the boat to Woody Island, it is an experience of the lifetime. Relax, slow down and enjoy every moment. Breathtaking scenery, great food, great hospitality, dance the night away and plenty to do. Have never laughed so much in my life!!!!! They should charge extra for the return trip because you will have gained weight with your visit. Thank you to all the people who make this experience such an experience to remember. One trip everyone on the rock or visiting should experience. Thank you once again.

This was a wonderful travel experience. Everyone was charming. The weather was great. The walking trails were pleasant, and just challenging enough. The food was great - lots of white bread! But everything is homemade, and made with love. We enjoyed meeting our new friends at the table and we vowed we'd book again same time next year. Two ladies were regular visitors to Woody Island, and I can understand why. The accommodations are simple, and very clean. We loved the bonfire, and the paddle boat! The light as the sunset was absolutely stunning. I hope life permits us to indeed book again same time next year.
