Quintal House is a beautifully restored historic community structure whose original construction dates back to the mid 1800’s. The traditional heritage character and simple elegance of the house is accented with antique and modern functional furnishings and local artisan and craft pieces. This 3-story Heritage Guest Home currently has 3 rooms available, all with serene harbour front views. The house has a warm, ageless and charming character, tastefully decorated with a mix of old world charm and new modern comforts. All rooms have comfortable beds and are equipped with private baths for guest convenience. Quintal House offers quiet, calm, peaceful surroundings in a private, relaxing setting that is family friendly with both indoor and outdoor activities for the young and the young at heart. Situated in the heart of this quaint, picturesque fishing community, Quintal House is located next to Nicole’s Cafe, featuring fine traditional dining and cuisine, Wall Works local artisan shop and Growlers homemade ice cream shop. The Guest House is also located within short walking distance to the local boat dock and boat tour operations, Brett House Museum, traditional foot trails, berry picking patches and other community attractions such as coastal walking trails and remote artisan studios. Within short driving distance to beautiful Sandy Cove Beach and the Registered Heritage Community/District of Tilting, an Irish heritage community offering interpretive museums and scenic hiking trails. Located within the Labrador current from the North, Fogo Island’s geography is responsible for the parade of ice floe and icebergs that make their way South in the spring and early summer months along the Island’s North East Coast, allowing great views of these massive icebergs in spring and early summer months. An occasional winter visit to the Island by the great polar bear from the North, as well as frequent encounters in any season with the local caribou herd can be expected. An array of wildlife, waterfowl, plant life and berries can also be found on the Island. Breathtaking ocean shorelines and spectacular sunsets and sunrises are the geography and art lessons to be experienced here. Go beach combing on our shoreline, pick some berries, enjoy some hiking, take a boat tour, but most importantly meet some of our friendly locals who have a knack for ‘spinning a yarn’ (having a chat). Enjoy high quality entertainment, as these same Island locals have a unique musical and theatrical gift that is showcased at many of the on-going music festivals and theatrical events hosted throughout the year.

My wife and I immensely enjoyed our 3 night visit to Fogo in September during our month long visit to Atlantic Canada. The Quintal House was wonderful with Nadine the perfect host, warm and welcoming and very knowledgable of what makes Fogo such a special place on this earth. Using QH as our "home" base, we explored most of the island and enjoyed a number of exceptional hikes that made this special place come alive. We hope to return in the near future and when we do, Quintal House will be our only choice of residence.

Our host Nadine was very warm and sincere and genuinely interested in looking after her guests. We had the run of a well stocked kitchen which was fine by me and we enjoyed the beauty of this finely restored home and all it's nuances. Quintal House by far is one of the nicest b & b's we have ever stayed at. Her location is perfect with restaurants close by and much to see on this Island. We saw many icebergs and took many pictures. We had a very relaxed time and when we saw Nadine she was always wanted to be sure that everything was okay. True hospitality.

My husband and I spent two nights here while travelling around Newfoundland and Labrador. Nadine is a very warm, welcoming host who loved telling us interesting anecdotes about the island and who made us feel at home as soon as we stepped through the door of her gorgeous heritage house. This is not a b&b as breakfast is self service, a fact made clear on booking. This could be an issue if all the guests wanted a cooked breakfast and at the same time; however the advantages are that you can eat whenever you want and whatever you want. The kitchen was incredibly well stocked and there were also fresh buns and cookies each day. The location is perfect, next to Nicole's excellent cafe, two minutes walk from the harbour from where we took a boat trip to an iceberg and within walking distance of Fogo Island Inn and a well stocked craft shop. Tip: when travelling to Fogo make sure you get to the ferry at least 1.5 hours early to make sure of getting on as there is no booking system. .

MEMORABLE GUEST HOUSE....A HOME AWAY FROM HOME........ We have stayed at hundreds of guest houses throughout the western world. Nadine's warm and hospitable home, Quintal Guest House, is at the very top of our list of wonderful places to spend more than a few days. We actually didn't want to leave after four days. We will definitely stay with Nadine on our next visit to Fogo Island. Thanks, Nadine!!

Our 3 night stay at Quintal B and B with our charming hostess, Nadine, was wonderful. The location is perfect in the community of Joe Batt's Arm, close to the Fogo island Inn, Nicole's restaurant, Wind & Waves Studio and across from the harbour. Nadine is a wealth of information and she genuinely wants you to enjoy your stay and her beautiful Fogo Island. We loved her self-serve breakfast style, with delicious baked goods and a well-stocked kitchen. Her heritage home is immaculately kept and so comfortable. We made ourselves at home in her lovely sitting room, minutes after our arrival! :) Seamus, her dog, was loveable and always quiet. Thank you, Nadine, for being the perfect hostess. We highly recommend your lovely home to family & friends.
