what a place - we were a group of more than 20, adults, teenagers & kids. we had our own building which was great-the centre of the building was our play cards,games, chat and have a beverage meeting place. the bedrooms were all off this area and some on the second floor. the food, well let's first start with the homemade bread-outstanding-the soups the,fish-and if you didn't like fish they had chicken and for kids who don't like that they'll cook you kraft dinner, hot dogs, chicken fingers or whatever they have-dessert was delicious, as was breakfast.you can go into the kitchen any time to have a cup of tea or coffee or have a cookie. the entertainment at night at the main house was fabulous,one man band who told jokes and could sing-everyone was up dancing and singing(not just our group) along with him. the next day around 11 you board the boat to take you back to your vehicle - but along the way you have a great tour of the area and then they stop where you get off the boat and have delicious soup, sandwiches, and tea. the entire 2 days is so enjoyable, you can walk, paddle boat, canoe, swim or just sit and enjoy the scenery and peace and quiet. keep in mind it's not a 5 star hotel but you'll have had an experience that you won't forget easily.

- 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
