We booked Woody Island Resort after hearing about it through my father. He had friends that visited. We looked at the web site and called to book. Very friendly and easy booking process. We were met at Garden Cove by Loyola, Gary, and Dave. As you would expect in Newfoundland , they are the friendliest people. Comfortable 40 minute cruise...

This was our first time visiting Woody Island. We were more than impressed by the warmth and friendliness we were greeted with in Garden Cove, where we met the ferry. We were totally immersed in the Newfoundland culture as soon as we boarded the boat. From the music and homemade tea buns to our friendly tour operators. We immediately felt...

To say the trip to " Woody Island" was awesome would be an understatement , in my opinion. From the time we left the wharf in Garden Cove to the time we returned the next day, it was good old Newfie hospitality all the way. The food and lodging was second to none and the music was definitely an asset....

From the moment the boat picked us up at Garden Cove until the time we left, you truly feel like you've stepped back to a wonderful, simpler time. The museum, the hiking trails, the resort, I'm sure there's nothing else in the world like it. The staff are friendly and helpful and the meals are amazing. You definately won't leave...

The most beautiful getaway to escape from reality and take a step back in time! Resort staff all went above and beyond in welcoming, feeding (oh the homemade bread!) and entertaining us from the time we arrived on the wharf in Garden Cove to the time we drove away with a wave and promise to return! Enjoyed a quick washer...

Do not conjure the typical image of "resort" when booking here. It is so NOT that...in a good way! It is kind of like visiting your dear aunt or grandmother. It feels like you've wandered back in time somehow to a simpler, kinder, less manicured and pretentious era. Much of that atmosphere is to the credit of Gary with his...

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
