When a man builds a home for his family on Fogo Island, he does it with love and he gives the very best of himself. Homes here have a soul, which is given to them by the people who made them. Our Inn is the heart of our community—a place to gather, socialize and enjoy life. From the moment you come inside, our journey of creation is with you.
Visitors to Fogo Island and without a room reservation:
We welcome visitors to the Inn with advance reservations for breakfast, dinner (lunch) and supper.

MADE OF US
NEW WAYS, OLD TRADITIONS
We have done this by holding on to our past. We remain true to our ancestors and we seek inspiration in our roots. We believe that innovating the future can come from preserving our history.
A PUBLIC HOUSE
Our Cinema (in partnership with the National Film Board of Canada) connects back to the Fogo Island Process films made in the 1960s by Colin Low and Memorial University. The library is a quiet place where the community can go to learn more about Newfoundland’s history and the contemporary art gallery is an original source of knowledge that is ‘of now’. Our Inn is also ‘of now’ yet it re-integrates us with a history that has almost been forgotten.
This Inn also needs to do what great Inns have done forever. It should feel like walking into a traditional Newfoundland home where there are private areas that are all yours, and then spaces for gathering.
