The Old Salt Box, Newfoundland, Canada

The Old Salt Box Co


Below is some of the wonderful accommodation to include on your journey.

Artisan Inn £££££

  • Canada
  • Beach and Island Escapes
  • Villas / Exclusive use

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.

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.

Fogo Island Inn £££££

  • Canada
  • Unusual
  • Wilderness

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.
