Fogo Island Inn Details 

Overview

Fogo Island Inn was designed by Newfoundland-born, Norway-based architect Todd Saunders. The 43,000 square-foot Inn is perched on stilts and hugs the North Atlantic coastline, affording all 29 suites with floor-to-ceiling views of sea and sky. All suites showcase the richness of their locality and clearly express a modern take on traditional Newfoundland outport design and décor. The Inn’s architecture is bold, optimistic, and distinctly of this place. Though radical in its design, the Inn still speaks to the traditional outport Newfoundland aesthetic.
Two floors of guest suites sit atop the Inn’s stilts, a distinct nod to traditional outport fishing stages. These stilts, or “shores,” underpin many of the buildings on Fogo Island due to the rocky, undulating topography. They support the Inn while also minimizing the overall building footprint and impact on the adjacent rocks, lichens, and berries. The Inn’s sharp angles and rough contours feel at home amidst Fogo Island’s jagged and uneven landscape.
The X-shaped structure features a two-storey west-to-east wing containing gathering spaces, and a four-storey South-West to North-East wing, parallel to the coast, containing all of the guest suites. The first floor includes the contemporary Art Gallery curated by Fogo Island Arts, the Dining Room, Bar, Lounge, and a Heritage Library containing works of both fiction and non-fiction pertaining to Newfoundland which is open to Inn guests as well as the local community of Fogo Island. The Cinema, Meeting Room, Gym, and Reading Room are located on the second floor, and the fourth floor roof deck houses wood-fired saunas and outdoor hot tubs.
Guest room sizes vary from 350 to 1 100 square feet, with suites on the third and fourth floors all including wood-burning stoves. The ceilings of the rooms on the fourth floor follow the dramatic slope of the roof, resulting in the three most easterly rooms enjoying double volume spaces with the sleeping area located on the mezzanine. Great care was taken to provide exceptional sound-proofing in order to ensure that guests hear only the sounds of nearby ocean waves. All of the Inn’s rooms were created using only natural materials such as wood, wool, cotton, and linen. The only plastic in the guest rooms is the telephone.

Labrador
Intimate nests for up to two persons on the 1st, 2nd and 3rd floors; all with stunning views of the wildest and most powerful ocean on the planet.
First floor suites benefit from an intimate connection to the 400 million year-old rocks of the rugged and fierce Back Western Shore; a place to feel the echoes of time in the rocks and the timelessness of the sea, yet to be tangled up with “the now” through closeness to the public spaces and the social nature of outport life.
The second floor Labrador Suites are a little removed from the ancient rocks of their first floor cousins. These suites have a seabird's perspective on the world; a perspective that quickens the imagination and provides solitude to reflect and gather yourself.
Some of the third floors “architect's suites” are places to experience the roof-top rock installations; to see the building from within the building; to experience the architectural magic of this bold, contemporary, handmade gem. While the others offer a direct line of sight of the Back Western Shore.

Newfoundland
These suites are for up to two people and located on the 3rd and 4th floors.
The 3rd floor reverie rooms allow guests to experience the horizon as an unbroken line; to spend long lazy afternoons in our Ineke Hans- designed Get Your Feet Up reading chairs; on cool days with a wood fire burning and on warm days with the windows open to the fresh ocean air. The 3rd floor Newfoundland suites have a bath, shower and wood stove.
The soaring ceilings and drama of the 4th floor “skysuites” give a deep sense of oneness with the sky; these are places for up to two persons to pause and wonder - at the unexpected behaviour of light where this powerful landscape meets an even more powerful seascape -at the very edge of the North Atlantic. These suites are steps away from the rooftop lounge (a great place for stargazing) and our Northern European style rooftop sauna. The 4th floor Newfoundland suites have a walk-in shower and wood stove.

Fogo Island
The Fogo Island Suites are ideal for up to two, three, or four persons.
Each suite is as spectacular and varied as Fogo Island itself. Among the Fogo Island suites are two large corner suites best suited for two persons. The first is oriented to the west and offers direct views of Fogo Head and panoramic sunsets from your in-room soaker tub. The other is cantilevered and hovering over the two-storey stilts and is oriented to the east: a perfect perspective from which to view fishing boats chugging in and out of Joe Batt’s Arm harbour.
Family-sized suites are also available within the Fogo Island suite category. These suites offer possibilities for two or up to three or four persons. They include two king sized beds that can be reconfigured as twins and are suites with an adjoining feeling and generous and flexible spirits. Family suites can also be configured with a sitting room, a second bedroom, or a workspace. All have a bath, walk-in shower, and wood stove. Some have an extra washroom.
