It List - The Best New Hotels: Fogo Island Inn

Iwan Baan

Remote Outpost: Fogo Island Inn, Newfoundland

It takes some legwork to get here: multiple flights, a drive, a ferry, perhaps even an overnight in tiny St. John. But Fogo Island Inn is worth the effort. Set on a remote island in the North Atlantic, the 29-room hotel—a pair of modern white rectangles on stilts by Newfoundland native Todd Saunders—is filled with locally crafted furnishings made in collaboration with international designers. No detail is overlooked, from the cozy wood-burning stoves to the pro binoculars for spotting breaching humpbacks, but Fogo’s heart and soul comes courtesy of its community hosts, each equipped to unlock the rich traditions of this tight-knit fishing town. $$$$
