What others had to say:

“The building is an 18th century Irish style cottage that it has been recognized as a national historic site of Canada, as being one of the oldest wooden building in North America. Need I say more? The rooms are marvelous, large and fantastic view. There is a great restaurant just outside by the same owners which also you need to visit for a great food experience.”

What others had to say:

“From the décor of our room to the farm to table food in the dining room grown locally, from walking and driving tours of the island coordinated by the staff to the daily visits in the lobby by Make and Break, two large Newfoundland dogs, we became immersed in the culture of the island. Guests and staff, and guests and guests began to feel like family. Staying at the Fogo Island Inn was an extraordinary and unforgettable experience.”
