Artisan Inn

Where to stay

Below you can see some of the wonderful places we have recommended for this journey.

Quirpon Lighthouse Inn £££££

  • Canada
  • Unusual

A truly special island escape set within a 1922 light-keeper’s home, Quirpon Lighthouse Inn (pronounced kar-poon) is a fully restored property that offers ten quaint rooms at the base of a still functional lighthouse. The Registered Heritage Building is a four-star property that is reachable by zodiac boat transfer, an exhilarating testament to its remoteness. Expect home-cooked breakfasts and dinners served at a table for fourteen, staff with wonderful senses of humour, and simple but cosy accommodations. Often described as a home from home, a stay at Quirpon Lighthouse Inn is an experience in itself. And since island life means adapting to the weather by necessity, prepare for both long days hiking in the sunshine and drizzly afternoons curled up with a book.

The Old Salt Box Co £££££

  • Canada
  • Beach and Island Escapes

A collection of eight completely restored homes along Newfoundland and Labrador’s dramatic Atlantic coast, The Old Salt Box Co. properties are located throughout the likes of Fogo Island and Twillingate. Set against quaint fishing villages, iceberg-packed oceans, rugged cliffs and lighthouses, the homes are available throughout the entire year (including the snow-covered winter season). Despite their old-world appearance, each property boasts a signature picture window, fresh contemporary furnishings, modern appliances, and authentic cast iron antique bathtubs. What’s more, there is plenty to keep you entertained, from theatres and museums to beaches and trails.

Fogo Island Inn £££££

  • Canada
  • Unusual

A contemporary retreat that is perched on a craggy outcrop of Fogo Island off Newfoundland’s dramatic shoreline, Fogo Island Inn combines contemporary luxury with all that is traditional of the North Atlantic. Teetering on the edge, supported by flamingo-like stilts that look like they could barely withstand the tiniest splash from the Atlantic Ocean, Fogo Island Inn is a high-end property that offers 29 rooms, each individually designed with crafted woods, hand-sewn quilts and artful wallpaper that reflect the island’s old traditions.
