Quirpon Lighthouse Inn, Newfoundland, Canada

Quirpon Lighthouse Inn

Where to stay

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

Artisan Inn £££££

  • Canada
  • Beach and Island Escapes

Positioned in the heart of a quaint and historic outport town in Newfoundland, Artisan Inn and its self-catering homes are dotted throughout colourful and idyllic Trinity. Having welcomed guests for more than 25 years, the innkeepers pride themselves on unveiling the history and culture of the community. The seven comfortable rooms are split between three buildings and are decorated simply, with frills and design flairs kept to a minimum. Meanwhile the three self-catering homes, Blueberry Cottage, Nathaniel House and Admiral’s Lookout, can accommodate families and groups of up to eight and are much more stylish, with details like private decks, barbeques and coffee machines.

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.
