My husband arranged a surprise birthday stay for me with seven of our family and friends; we had four nights at the Inn, and everything was wonderful. We all arrived at Gander from various spots in Ontario and Nova Scotia, and there were two helicopters which transported us from the airport to the Inn. The view was spectacular - we...

The first thing that draw to this side if the wirld was the exceptional architecture of Todd Saunders. He created this hotel and it was worth suffering a bit to get there after two days wait for the waters to calm and to allow ferries to cross. The rest if the stay was flawless. The exterior sobriety was kept in...

We were staying in Fogo Island for a night and couldn't resist visiting all the buildings on the island that were part of this project - but the inn is exceptional.

The Fogo Island Inn is a social enterprise project. Architecturally it is stunning. The decor is a mix of folksy colourful, handmade, local and with a contemporary feel. The tea was lovely mostly because of the ambience. The cost to stay in the Inn is beyond the reach of most but I think that is the point. It is a...

Fogo Island Inn was the pinnacle of our honeymoon road trip. It was planned to be just that, and it came through in so many ways.

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
Fogo Island Inn sits on an Island, off an Island, off one of the four corners of the Earth. Every one of our 29 one-of-a-kind guest suites has dramatic floor-to-ceiling windows that open onto the wildest and most powerful ocean on the planet, located less than 100 feet from your organic natural-fibre dream bed. Most suites have a wood burning fireplace stove; all are furnished with quiet luxuries and handmade furniture and quilts - a stimulating relief from the numbing uniformity of modern times. Built on the principles of sustainability and respect for nature and culture, the award-winning Inn belongs to the community. And all surpluses from the operation are reinvested in the community to help secure a long-lasting resilience for Fogo Island, Newfoundland.Accolades: Travel + Leisure Global Vision Award, Culture, 2013.EnRoute Magazine Canada's Best New Restaurants, 2013.TIAC National Cultural Tourism Award, 2013.
