Fogo Island Inn is the culmination of a major community revitalization project. The building’s rugged minimalist architecture balances traditional influences with a contemporary sensibility, which architect Todd Saunders says was, “made and built just for Fogo”.
Newfoundland Suites: Spend 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 furniture within the Inn is primarily handcrafted and produced on Fogo Island, employing local artisans and makers and contributing to the promotion of economic resilience for one of Canada’s oldest communities.
Every opportunity was seized to incorporate joy and colour anarchy into the guest suites: whimsical touches such as custom-designed wallpaper, brightly-coloured hooked mats, and fantastical furniture pieces play off of traditional motifs but ultimately add something new and exciting to the furnishings landscape of Fogo Island.
Joe Batt's Arm: Legend has it that the name of the community comes from the first European settler, possibly a deserter of Captain James Cook in the early The community is shaped as an inlet and in those days it was called an 'Arm'.
