This excursion was absolutely awesome. The homemade Newfoundland style meals to the traditional musical entertainment made this experience very enjoyable. The service and hospitality was excellent. The best "Kitchen Party" I have ever experienced. I would highly recommend this experience!!

Woody Island is a must do for everyone! Once you go there once, you will go back! The staff were so helpful and gracious to everyone; the food was phenomenal - you will not go hungry by no means! Even between meals, the kitchen is open to everyone to help themselves! If there's something on the menu you don't like... More

This is a return trip to Woody Island Resort. I was not disappointed. From the time you step on the boat in Garden Cove until your return, it is totally a relaxing time. Great fun with Richard and Marie with the music, dancing and jokes. Great food by Bonnie and her team. Accommodations are quaint but exceptionally clean and all... More

My husband and myself always wanted a small intimate wedding and Woody Island Resort made our dreams come true! We chose to invite 43 people to do the 1 night 2 day excursion. We all arrived at Garden Cove and we where greeted by the skipper Gary who was so pleasant and made sure to welcome all of my guests... More

Just returned from our two-day, one-night excursion to Woody Island. It is a must-do for anyone wishing to experience a taste of NL culture, history, and hospitality. This all-inclusive trip to Woody Island is a chance to relax, worry-free for a short time. From the time the Merasheen docks in Garden Cove to pick you up, you needn't worry about... More

Not long home from a 2 Day/1 Night stay at Woody Island Resort. Well worth the money you pay. Awesome scenery, food, fun, entertainment, and Newfoundland hospitality at its finest. The management and staff are second to none and bend over backwards to your every need and certainly make each and everyone feel special.

The chance to step back in time to days that were simpler. We were greeted by Gary, the talented skipper and musician. We enjoyed our boat ride over to arrive at our tidy dorm. The afternoon was spent delving into the history of the area at the tiny do-it-yourself museum and on tranquil walks over the trails and to the... More

Total relaxation for a day & a half of was such a blessing in a trip of busy travelling. No driving, no traffic, no TV, no phone. Just boat rides, good food, good music and a step back in time to strolling about the village instead of driving everywhere. Peaceful but interesting.

This was a fantastic getaway for us. The food was absolutely amazing. We were greeted to the resort by not only friendly staff but the smell of fresh homemade bread. From the toutons, pea soup, homemade bread, fish and the desserts you never left the table hungry. The accommodations were good. The bed was not that comfortable but we really... More

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
