This is a lodge with a soul, filled with the handiwork of the local people: traditional outport furniture, handcrafted quilts, and woven rugs—once-disappearing arts now given new life and purpose.
The 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 has made and built just for Fogo. A cultural destination in its own right where visitors and locals meet, the Inn includes an art gallery, heritage library, cinema and rooftop sauna. Each of the 29 guest rooms is unique, with every detail chosen with purpose and handcrafted by locals.
The Inn is a great feat of contemporary architecture, all stilts, angles, and vertical lines that contrast with the rough slabs of ancieant granite that surround it. But as much as it might stand out in its setting, the inn is integrally part of Fogo Island. This is a lodge with a soul, filled with the handiwork of the local people: traditional outport furniture, handcrafted quilts, and woven rugs—once-disappearing arts now given new life and purpose.
SEAFAIR... Our newest and best property...
The Adam Mouland House was built in 1913 in Mockbeggar, the oldest district of Bonavista. The house is a two-and-a-half-storeyed, steep, gabled-roof structure. It is a fine example of nineteenth and early twentieth-century architecture in the Bonavista area. The raincaps over the windows and doors are characteristic of the Bonavista architects' attention to detail. The house on this property important because it is a good representation of the way in which outport builders in Bonavista interpreted the gable roofed house style. The simple, yet decorative window and door trim reflect the builder’s expressive style and craftsmanship.
Historically, this property is important because it is representative of an era when the people of Bonavista relied heavily on the inshore fishery for survival. At the time when this house was constructed it was common for residents to have a number of fishery-related outbuildings on their property. The fish store located on the Adam Mouland property is significant because it serves as a visual reminder of a traditional homestead; a type that is disappearing from the Newfoundland landscape
The Heritage Foundation designated the Adam Mouland House a Registered Heritage Structure in April 1995. The Adam Mouland Property is significant because of its historical and architectural values.
It's fully outfitted and follows a contemporary, rustic and authentic design.
