I had to think about this review for awhile, to do it justice. I have decided to do it in two parts. The five star part: it is a beautiful house, inside & out. Nadine is a great host. The kitchen is free for you to use, with most of the food provided, and you can bring in & cook... More

We went to NL with my parents (in their 80's). My Dad grew up on Fogo and had not been back in almost 50 years. Listening to Nadine and Dad talk about the Island was a highlight of my trip. Great house, great location and fantastic hostess. The kitchen is better stocked than ours. We went to the fish plant... More

We stayed at Quintal house for one night in May and it was a great place from which to explore Fogo Island. Nadine, the owner, was warm, welcoming, and we were happy to learn a lot about Fogo Island from her. She is smart and well informed. Quintal House was homey and comfortable for our family and it was a... More

In addition to providing very comfortable, interesting and well-appointed accommodations, Quintal House offers the knowledge, wisdom and helpful advice of its proprietor - Nadine Decker. Much can be learned from Nadine about the social, cultural and economic history of Fogo Island and its current prospects and challenges. Coupled with the ubiquitous Newfoundland friendliness and generosity, a stay at Quintal House... More

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
