Visited here last fall, everything from the greeting at the dock to all the fine homemade food and entertainment was fantastic. This is not a resort for those who are looking for heated pools and summer drinks to be delivered. If you enjoy nature these people provide it plus. Lots to do , walking, kayaking and best of all no cell service or wifi. Spent the weekend with 38 others, some were on their 3rd visit and they said they would be coming back again to celebrate their anniversary as they had met there. If you want something relaxing, not fancy, good home cooked food than this is your place.
- 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
