Fabulous place to stay in Fogo, Eileen is so friendly and helpful, able to get us into a restaurant on short notice. Room was clean and comfy, fully cooked breakfast in the morning was great, homemade bread and jam, and of course other items ,lol. Will definitely stay here again and recommend to family and friends.
We so enjoyed our stay here, including the fabulous breakfasts with homemade bread & jam. Experienced our first impromptu kitchen party; a couple who were hired to play & sing elsewhere on the island & throughout Newfoundland stayed here, & gave us a wonderful concert. We all joined in the jolly singing, & passed the wine around. Fun memories we’ll never forget.
We really enjoyed our 2 night stay at Peg's Place. We had a room just off the side of the building,with a small verandah, for ease of baggage. The room was definitely snug, but clean as a whistle with everything you need. It was a real pleasure to sit and chat with Eileen over breakfast, she is a great resource for local information around Fogo. Check in and check out was easy, lots of parking.
We stayed at Peg’s for 4 nights in late August and truly enjoyed our experience. Eileen (the proprietor) gave us all the tips on local sights and activities, and insights into the history and politics of the Island. The B&B was very cute and well maintained, with good wifi. Breakfast was delicious (we couldn’t get enough of her homemade bread and jams!). The location was superb in the town of Fogo, close to great hikes and restaurants, and a short 15min drive from almost everything we wanted to do in nearby towns. Would definitely stay here again!
We arrived on a rainy day and stayed 2 nights in this lovely bed and breakfast in the picturesque town of Fogo. The town had more amenities than most towns on Fogo Island and everything worth seeing and experiencing on the island is a short distance away!! We walked the stunningly beautiful Fogo Island trail and stopped for a couple of afternoon drinks at the world renowned Fogo island inn. Had great Chinese food?? An unexpected find!! And the lightest crispiest battered fish and chips at the Beaches bar - unfortunately I too late in the season for the traditional live music!! Eileen was a wonderful host providing an excellent breakfast with homemade preserves and freshly picked blueberries!! A very memorable visit!!
The owners of Peg's Place are very knowledgeable about the area and offered great tips about what to see and do. We were there for the Brimstone Head Folk Festival and they really helped us out in terms of navigating the event. The breakfasts each morning were fantastic with homemade bread and jams. We were treated with patience and kindness from our first hello to our final goodbye. We will never forget our wonderful stay there! Beth J.
A great spot in Fogo! Eileen is a wonderful host with lots of local knowledge and suggestions. She takes an interest in her guests and obviously enjoys offering warm hospitality. Breakfast was delicious - especially the home-made bread (she baked it daily... the aroma was as delightful as the finished product.) Our room was not large but beds were comfortable and room/ensuite very clean. Lovely time spent on front porch in the evenings.
We had a great stay at Peg’s place. Eileen is very friendly and gave us lots of advice about hikes around the island and visiting the inn with the free tour. She cooked us a great breakfast each morning with eggs, toast, fruit and various jams. The kitchen was available throughout the day (no access to the stove) which was convenient. Our room was small and the washroom was in the closet but very clean and comfortable. The water in the bathroom and tap was a bit muddy but filtered water was always available in the common area. Fogo is a beautiful place and we would love to return and stay here again!
Newfoundland is all about the people and the geography. Hosts Gerald and Eileen of Peg's Place guarantee that you experience the best of both. Because they are both born and bred Fogo Islanders they have a wealth of knowledge, stories and pictures to enrich your experience.
Pegs place is a great place to stay while on Fogo Island. Felt like home. Clean comfortable place to stay and owners are wonderful ambassadors for the Island. Master bedroom had great views and lots of room.
