“Woodie island resort”
Reviewed 29 September 2013

What a fun place. Quiet, beautiful location, staff very friendly and attentive. Food great- fresh bread and rolls at every meal. Activities tempered by weather. Rooms simple, clean. No Wifi or cell service - a good thing!

Get away from the hustle and bustle of your busy life and retreat to this unique and secluded location, Woody Island. Sense the quitetude and rippling of the water as you are escorted by boat out to the island in the early morning hours, the thick, gray, fog lifting as you reach the solitude of this rustic, uncommercialized retreat, built in a natural, wooded setting. Receive excellent service, be entertained, and turn off the electronic distractions of your day to day life... eat, and sleep like you've never slept before in the hush of nature, in beautiful Newfoundland.

Each and every one of you were amazing and the meals alone were worth the trip! The accommodations were perfect and everything was spotless! The music & friends are to be bragged about, how many places can 41 strangers join together for one night & part as pals in the morning! The boat ride was a dream in deed & the boil up in the cove on the way back was spectacular & we had an accordion player to entertain us while we ate! Boy oh boy it was a keen time for sure!
ALREADY MAKING PLANS TO GO BACK WITH MY DAUGHTERS! thank you again Gary Pomeroy & friends!!!!

Wonderful trip - would recommend it to anyone! Beautiful location, delicious home-made food, especially the bread! Oh my!! The staff are so friendly and helpful and want to make your time on the island the best it can be! Comfortable and clean rooms, each with it's own bathroom! Great idea. The entertainment was top-notch and we all had a great time at the kitchen party. Loved the mummers!!
Will certainly be back! Thank you so much.

Absolutely wonderful staff and service. Clean, simple rooms, comfortable beds with handmade quilts. Cannot say enough good things about the staff. They work so hard and are always smiling.

The first thing we were told was to consider ourselves at home. Go to the kitchen to make ourselves a cup of tea if we so desired. Many of the staff hold down more than one job. Dave, our evening entertainment, was also our wagon driver, he got the camp fire going for the boil up, dished up the food, loaded & unloaded the boat, and we saw him heading to one of the cabins with a mop & pail one morning. Our skipper, in addition to operating the boat, kept us informed of the history of the area, briefed us on what to expect, loaded and unloaded the luggage, food for the kitchen, laundry, etc.
We were four adult family members and we highly recommend this resort as a relaxing, low key getaway; however, it is not the type of place to bring children, infants, or anyone with a physical disability. There is no TV, Internet, nor activities for kids. The resort is run on a generator that is used only around meal times and during the evening entertainment. Everyone gathers in one large room, so tired or disruptive children can make it uncomfortable for everyone. There is a fair amount of walking as well as getting on and off the boat a number of times. The wagon ride was fun, but not for anyone who has a bad back or any pregnant women. Oh, the food...well, one will never go away hungry. The pea soup, fresh homemade bread & molasses--yum yum. Fresh cod, vegetables cooked to perfection, a hearty breakfast, all the second helpings (& even thirds) you could want--we never left the table hungry.

Room Tip: I do not know if you can request a specific room, but my preference would be in the main lodge, upst...

I have been here twice and am planning to have my wedding Jack and Jill party there next year. The place is amazing, the experience of old time Newfoundland, the history, a resettled community, old graveyards and schools, nice walks, boating, kayaking, and enjoying a great scuff at night, a boat tour culminating in a lunch and music in a sheltered cove is all just amazing. Add to that an amazingly friendly crew who would smile and be at your beck and call.... AND the opportunity to make new friends.... I would HIGHLY recommend this trip to anyone. But it wouldn't be fair not to tell you about the Food! Amazing home cooking... hearty portions, served with a smile...and they will offer you more, and as much as you want! To walk in to the smell of freshly baked bread and fish frying... all while some of the guests are outside banging out a few tunes with their guitars and accordions...absolutely surreal.
You will keep coming back for more!

Room Tip: All the rooms are clean and awesome, but i really enjoyed the view in the rooms facing the ocean in...

We arrived on Woody Island around 11 am to the smell of freshly baked bread and pea soup! We had already made friends on the dock and on the boat trip over! People came from all over! One of our travellers was from Australia! We were shown to our room, a quaint, clean, airy room with homemade quilts and our own bathroom! We spent the day wandering the island and rowing a dory around the bay! The latter part of the afternoon we took advantage of the shady deck and kitchen bar where we opted for icy cold beers!!! We chatted the time away with our fellow travellers until the aroma from the kitchen drew us inside for a feast of fresh fish, vegetables and cottage pudding for dessert! Seconds were always available and noone left hungry! The dance/kitchen party started at 9:00 and included some fine traditional music!!!

After a good night's sleep and a hearty breakfast ( more homemade bread) the boat picked us up and we travelled to a cove for a boil up!!! Homemade soup, fresh bread, sandwiches and baked goods completed our meal!!! Onward then to Garden Cove where we bid our farewell to our new friends.

This was truly a fabulous trip! The entire experience was amazing, mostly so I think because of the exceptional employees of the place!

Upon arrival, the captain commented, "Make yourself at home" and that says it all! We were welcomed and made to feel at home from start to finish!

I would highly recommend this trip to anyone, young or old!!!

Hi JRobere. Thanks for the fabulous review! I am so glad you enjoyed your trip. Though we mostly host guests from the island of Newfoundland, we are always happy to entertain guests from other parts of the world like Australia (and we often do!) I will pass on your comments to all the staff on the island. We hope to see you again soon!
