Fogo Island Inn sits on an island, off an island, at one of the four corners of the Earth. Situated along Iceberg Alley, all 29 rooms and suites feature floor-to-ceiling windows opening onto the wildest and most powerful ocean on the planet. Furnished with handmade quiet luxuries, they serve as a welcome refuge from the numbing uniformity of modern times.
The island’s still-wild world has caribou to track, hills of berries to forage, nature trails to explore and countless birds and sea life to behold. This award-winning Inn is operated as a social business, is a community asset and 100% of the operating surpluses are reinvested into the community.
Led by Executive Chef Jonathan Gushue, the Inn's culinary team is responsible for the Inn’s 48-seat dining room, 35-seat lounge and, for on- and off-site catering. The team finds inspiration in the ocean’s bounty, from ingredients grown on the island, and from Fogo Island’s time-honoured outport cooking traditions. Everything coming out of the kitchen is handmade – sausage, bread, baked goods, bacon, and mustards. The menu changes with the wind and the waves and the seven seasons: a culinary mission that respects and celebrates the profound gift of place that is Fogo Island.
Fogo Island is a place where going out on the ocean to catch a fish or watch whales is a part of the natural cadence of life.
