This is an excellent way to experience authentic Newfoundland!
Boat rides, short hikes/trails, amazing food and service from local people as well as the ability to do other activities was wonderful. A bit of a scoff and scuff in the evening with Newfoundland music and mummers was awesome! A real slice of Newfoundland ways and hospitality.
Clean and comfortable rooms and bathrooms (warning for the bigger folks: the showers are quite small!) and no televisions or telephones in the rooms to bother you - fantastic! Newfie boilup on the way home back to Garden Cove was a great way to cap off a lovely two days.
The most stand out thing of this resort is the sense of home. You are invited to treat the homestead just as you would your own home and I really enjoyed that.
- 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
