Mary's place is located in the town of Fogo at the base of Fogo Head Trail. Mary’s is one of the highest homes in the town and overlooks the village, Fogo Harbour and the open ocean with it’s panoramic views all around. Our best Fogo Island location for watching icebergs, fishing boats and the lights of the town at night reflecting off the water. Hike the 400+ steps to Fogo Head if you have the stamina and desire for one of the best views on the island.

Mary's Place was our first salt box experience and we were looking forward to the option of having a kitchen. It was very cute but sadly could have been cleaner. Beautiful red kitchen cabinets were smudged with finger marks and cooking use from the previous tenant. Grimy salt and pepper shakers....that sort of thing. We opted to not use the kitchen or the uncleaned BBQ. I know it was towards the end of the season and staff are not as attentive to detail but we paid the going rate.

Mary's Place is our 5th Salt Box, What can I say about these wonderful vacation homes? Janet D. has created the most comfortable, charming "homes-away-from home". Her vision of how to provide the most comfortable atmosphere for travelers is so impressive.The huge windows are her signature feature. Sitting in the evening, looking out of these windows at the ocean as the sun goes down is pretty much heaven. The colours she chooses for her Salt Boxes are vibrant and relaxing all at the same time. Beds are so comfortable and those glass chandeliers in the bedrooms give a very elegant presentation. To spend time at Mary's after a day of exploring beautiful Fogo Island was a joy. As my husband said, we can't imagine a visit to NFLD without at least one stay at a Salt Box.

A compact, clean and well equipped unit! Bright and open, local quilts on the bed💞 We went to the Co-op to buy our seafood and we were not disappointed! All we needed was butter, garlic and some white wine! Knock on the door if it looks like no one is around, someone will come out to make your sale! It’s an island thing😀 My friends did the track walk up to the head lands, I sat in the car and painted it in watercolour, to each his own! This spot is quite something.

Mary's Place was just the perfect spot! We wished we could have stayed longer. The cute red kitchen is on the second floor with a huge picture window out to the ocean! The bathroom and bedrooms are well appointed and gorgeous! I would come here again for sure. Small TV in the corner which we used. The hike up the mountain is just a few feet away from the front door - amazing views of Fogo and the ocean! We went to the Lions Hall to get Screeched In. It was really fun - the "Captain" did a really good job. We danced and had lots of rum.

This is the best option to see these parts of Newfoundland. The cottages are sweet, with great views, extremely well kept and amazing. We (family of 4) very much enjoyed our stay in each one of these. Twillingate is especially cool (Gertie’s). Highly recommend this as part of your next NFLD visit. If arriving in St John’s, buy a cooler and pre plan some meals as there are not many restaurants or pubs in these parts. Kitchen amenities are great so you can make a decent meal.

Andrea, Thank you for your lovely compliments of our homes. Salt boxes have a special place in our hearts, and that certainly shows when our staff put such love into their work. We're so glad you found our homes well-kept and well-stocked. A great recommendation to our future guests- the homes are made to be cooked in, so pre-planning to stop at a large food centre is always a great idea! We look forward to having you again. Warmly, Amanda

What a Fabulous Old Salt box with modern interior, very clean and well kept inside. For the price we expected the Feature Window to be clean also. I understand a few days previous there was a storm and the window must be hard to keep clean as a result of the weather, but for us it was so disappointing, the best Feature of the place was so dirty that it was hard to look out at the Iceberg directly in our view. I don't think it is expecting too much, like clean sheets, and a clean house, the Feature Presentation is where you will spend most of your time looking out. I hope it is clean for you! The location was amazing a few hundred steps from the Lookout Trail, just an amazing place to explore!

Thank you Gina for your comments. Mother Nature has cleaned the windows again and hopefully the north salt wind will stay away for other guests. I am so glad you got to also experience the beautiful icebergs that have been around Fogo Island this year as well.

Belle vue du salon sur les icebergs. Bien située à côté d’une piste de randonnée. Bien équipée. Je donne un 4/5. Seules choses faisant perdre des points sont que #1 plus d’espace table ou tablette dans la salle de bain serait bien et #2 lit devraient être un peu plus confortable. Les quilt sur les lits sont jolies.

Merci encore pour votre commentaire de Mary's Place sur l'île de Fogo. Nous sommes désolés que vous n'avez pas eu plus de place dans la salle de bain sur les étagères et les tables qui sont là. Notre conception simpliste fonctionne pour certains clients et parfois non. Je suis content que vous ayez apprécié le reste de la maison et que vous ayez eu de très bons icebergs. Janet
