Stepping into another dimension...
Fogo Island Inn is luxurious. It is an understated luxury that is focussed on local traditions, culture and community. It truly feels like you are being welcomed by long-lost relatives you never knew you had. With the Inn being 30 ft wide and 300 ft long, you get this feeling of ... View more of being on a ship. To add to that illusion, the landscape changes dramatically from one moment to the next, feeling like you are slowly floating across the edge of the world. The inn's staff provide a warm and genuine hospitality that comes from a local. Not the cold ninja-like precision and perfection version of hospitality of other 5 star hotels. Food & Beverage is second to none in Canada, with executive chef Jonathan Gushue at the helm. Again, I have to bring in the people and community aspect of the Inn. Our guests spent time with Nicole, the pastry chef that baked our cake, to learn about jam jarring and preserves. Some other guests craving for more even had time with Jonathan himself to talk about the food philosophy of the Inn and traditional ways they preserve food in this time of year. It this connection with the service staff that elevates the experience here that makes it more personal and authentic. The Inn had struck a nearly perfect balance between stitching old world traditions with contemporary (might I say modern) philosophies of today. You're left dumbfounded at the care absolutely everything at the inn represents. The planning aspect was very professional and responsive. As we never toured the venue before, the staff was great at providing input and ideas to make our day the best it could be. Incredibly flexible in non-traditional requests when it comes to the schedule, activities and food/beverage. The Inn surprised us with extras that were meaningful, not just for the sake of "extras". Many guests loved the aprons they wore during the cooking demo, and the Inn was able to provide guests with a surprise apron in their departure bags as a gift. Florals and decor were brought in but maintained the minimalist feel that Michael and I were looking for. The magical experience at the Inn is truly the most remarkable place to hold your wedding. I highly recommend it to anyone that loves Canada, would like the money they spend on their wedding to go to a good cause, and understands that sometimes you have to get away to the edge of the world to pay attention to your heart and the people you love. BTW, the cost is really just the cost of the rooms, there are no additional charges...

The Fogo Island Inn was the location for our November elopement. Stunning ocean views, crashing waves and a never ending coastline was the back drop for our ceremony. The staff made sure everything went off perfectly. Wood burning stoves, a special cake made by the pastry chef, ... View more chef, champagne after our ceremony, they could not do enough for us. Moreover, staff paid exceptional attention to our needs. Mention something that you really liked and they never forgot it. We could not get over how much they knew about us as a couple only after meeting everyone for a few moments. The Inn itself is beautiful. High ceilings, contemporary yet tastefully decorated with pops of colour and Newfoundland accents. Such a warm and inviting place to experience. Ample places to relax and just enjoy the moment. Dining was superb. We arrived to a lovely lunch, had a full seven courses for dinner and a hearty breakfast the next morning. Again, they were very in tune to likes/dislikes and made sure we were enjoying all courses. Wine and bar service was also phenomenal. Lovely selection of wines. Fresh juices, coffee and pastry selection outside your door every morning to start the day. Enjoyed over ocean views from our room and a wood burning stove. We literally sat there for an hour sipping coffee and reminiscing how perfect this moment actually was. The room was laid out really well. Amenities and linens were of the best quality. Very comfortable and cozy. Overall, we cannot express how amazing our day was. A dream come true, a perfect place, surrounded by such lovely people. We left feeling like family. Would recommend Fogo Island Inn for any occasion!

This is the most amazing location! Everything about the day was spectacular; the people, the photos, the food, cake, flowers, table setting! Thank you again to everyone at Fogo who made our wedding as special as it was!

I can't say enough wonderful things about Fogo Island, the Inn, and the entire staff. We looked at this spot initially because of the gorgeous and rugged location and stunning architecture. We found we were even more drawn to the incredibly nice people, welcoming nature, quirky ... View more traditions, and an indescribable luxurious but homey feel that you can only find at the Inn. The food is also some of the best we've ever tasted - and the quality was maintained even when scaled to nearly 70 guests for the entire weekend! We also were inspired by the ecological and cultural preservation movement that the Inn is spearheading. It felt great to be contributing to the effort to revitalize and maintain such a special community. It can be difficult planning a wedding at the "ends of the earth" from a distance, but the Inn's staff were amazing. They executed everything we asked for perfectly and seamlessly, and thought of many small and thoughtful touches that would never have even occurred to us. They also made us feel very special, and truly a part of their family. In short, this is a magical place and we are very lucky to have found it.
