Experience Our History
The resort is situated on Woody Island in Placentia Bay. This quaint outport fishing village once boasted a population of 400 before government resettlement forced most to relocate elsewhere in the province. Today, Woody Island is home to mainly summer visitors who vacation or enjoy weekend getaways in this spectacular and pristine Canadian destination.
A Short Voyage Gets You There
Sit back and enjoy the 40 minute cruise to the island, our skipper has everything under control. There is always lots of wildlife to see; moose, caribou and even whales make regular appearances along the route! As you enjoy the unmatched scenery of Placentia Bay, you’ll also get your first introduction to Newfoundland folk music.
Once you disembark from the Merasheen, the island becomes your playground. There is lots to see and do, so once you get settled away in your quarters take advantage of this truly unique opportunity!
