A superb place to stay with a welcome that is second to none. A veritable home-from-home. The building itself is beautiful with lots of character and has been restored to the highest of standards. The owner was friendly, helpful and couldn't be faulted in any way. The breakfast was a self-service of anything in the fully-stocked fridge and kitchen. There... More

We spent two nights at Quintal House in October, and it was just lovely. The home is beautifully restored, cozy, clean and welcoming. The bedrooms are lovely, and the kitchen is fully stocked. We really enjoyed the self-catered option, as it meant we could sleep in and still enjoy a lovely breakfast at our own pace. We were also lucky... More

My partner and I stayed at Quintal House for three nights over Thanksgiving Weekend and it was absolutely wonderful! Nadine is lovely and provides you with a fully stocked, self serve kitchen so you can feel right at home. The freshly baked partridgeberry muffins were a delicious touch! We stayed in room 1 and it was large and clean with... More

My partner and I stayed for two nights at Nadine's Quintal House in August and had a fantastic time. Nadine was always available when we needed something while respecting our desire for a getaway. We both appreciated the well stocked fridge and ability to prepare anything we needed at any time - the muffins, bread, and scones from Nadine's mother... More

The Quintal House was a perfect way to spend a night on Fogo Island. We loved chatting with Nadine and learning the history of the house and Fogo. She was lovely and welcoming to my husband and I and my children. The rooms were clean and charming with local made quilted pillowcases. We enjoyed the self serve breakfast with plenty... More

Nadine was a great representative of the community.Very clean and tidy place, however we did not expect to get up in the morning and make our own breakfast. Nadine was not forthcoming about this previously and we would not have stayed here had we had known this previously. When it is called a Bed and Breakfast it would certainly mean... More

Nadine D, Owner at Quintal House Heritage Guest Home, responded to this review

It is unfortunate to learn from your review posted on TripAdvisor that there was some confusion regarding the product we offer to our guests. Quintal House is a great business that I am very proud of and as such I am always forthcoming regarding every aspect of the services we deliver here. Quintal House is not a bed & breakfast,... More

Stayed at quintal house just one night and certainly enjoyed the experience. Even though we experienced a newfoundland heat wave, and there are no air conditioners, Nadine (the owner) had our room cooled down with a good fan. The heritage house and furnishings were lovely, the breakfast offerings were good. The location in Joe Batts Arm was ideal, close to... More

Spent two nights. Would go back without hesitation. One of the best I have ever been. House and rooms are impeccable. Owner Nadine is professional and friendly. Very attentive to her guests. Self serve breakfast and homemade bakeries Miam-Miam. You can use kitchen and made ourselves dinner. Feels like home. Very well located on island. In beautiful Joe Batt's Arm,... More

This was our first trip to Nfld and also to Fogo Island. After reading many of the trip Advisor reviews we chose to book the Quintal House, for a 2 night stay on Fogo Island. We were certainly not disappointed. A beautiful well kept heritage home. Nadine was a great host, and made us feel right at home. Large porch... More

We very much enjoyed our stay here, and loved this immaculately kept heritage house. It has a real charm about it, and was very comfortable. It is centrally located on Fogo Island, in Joe Batt's Arm which was great. I loved that we could make our own breakfast in the morning from the stocked fridge in the kitchen, and Nadine... More
