Fogo Island Inn is a great feat of contemporary architecture, all stilts, angles, and vertical lines that contrast with the rough slabs of ancient granite that surround it. But as much as it might stand out in its setting—far away from far away, as they like to say, on an island off the coast of Newfoundland—the inn is integrally part of Fogo Island. Local architect Todd Saunders designed it as a modern take on traditional Atlantic Canadian outport architecture, and the moods of North Atlantic and ever-changing sky define every backdrop here. This is a lodge with a soul, filled with the handiwork of the local people: traditional outport furniture, handcrafted quilts, and woven rugs—once-disappearing arts now given new life and purpose.
A stay at Fogo Island Inn is a personal invitation to become part of a centuries-old culture, to fish as the islander’s ancestors did, to forage for wild berries and mushrooms, to watch boat builders or bakers at work in their homes, to sit back and listen to the lilt of local music. You are a guest of the whole island here, and whether you spend your days hiking amid raw and beautiful coastal scenery or sketching it with a local artist, the experience is enhanced by the vibrant culture the lodge was built to protect.
- Experience Fogo Island through the eyes of islanders whose families have lived here for some 400 years with stories, songs, recipes, and much more.
- Savor delectable dishes and fine wines at the award-winning restaurant, surrounded by four-storey views of the wild North Atlantic Ocean.
- Gaze at a million stars or enjoy a cocktail chilled by iceberg fragments as you soak in the rooftop hot tubs.
- Wake up to the dramatic interplay of sky and sea, and find a warm daybreak basket at your door.
- Hop on one of the lodge bicycles to explore the coast or the fishing village of Joe Batt’s Arm, and hike to stunning artist studios hidden along the coast.
- Watch icebergs go by in the spring and summer, wander the hills and pick wild berries in the fall, snowshoe to inland cabins on the pristine snows of winter.
