Built on the principle of respect for nature and culture, the Inn offers a contemporary take on an authentic Newfoundland aesthetic all while striving to minimize impact on the surrounding environment and uplift the local community via its social business model.

Every one of the Inn’s 29 one-of-a-kind guest rooms and suites has dramatic floor-to-ceiling windows that open onto the wildest and most powerful oceans on the planet.

Resort Location

Fogo Island Inn

Fogo Island is big and small – big enough to be interesting, yet small enough to know. Newfoundland’s outport communities, including Fogo Island, offer specific and pure forms of hospitality and social richness. The people of Fogo Island are deeply bound up in the nature and culture of their Island, and have continued to devise clever solutions to the wicked problems of modernity. They have worked with the ocean, with the land, and with one another, in order to continue to live, work, and thrive in one of Canada’s oldest European settled communities at the edge of the North American continent.
