Overlooking the harbour at Joe Batt's Arm on Fogo Island, this lovely guest house was comfortable and spacious. The host opened her kitchen to us which allowed us to prepare a breakfast of our choice. Her living area was warm and inviting with plenty of informative literature on Fogo life. Located right beside Nicole's Cafe was a bonus. The cuisine at the cafe was delicious! We highly recommend Quintal House to anyone seeking an authentic taste o Fogo Island.

We loved the beautifully restored Quintal House and our up-beat hostess Nadine .She is passionate about Fogo Island and, with her professional background in community development, and her active role in monitoring the fascinating changes now happening on Fogo, can share a wealth of information about this very special corner of Newfoundland. Nadine always leaves home baked goodies to snack on in the fully-equipped kitchen that's available to guests. Nicole's Cafe next door has a deservedly good reputation for fine food and there's delicious home made ice cream in the nearby ice cream shop. Fogo Island is absolutely fascinating and deserves at least 2 full days but book way ahead for the Quintal House as the three rooms are constantly full.

Wonderful place and wonderful owner--Nadine. We came to Fogo in the middle of a hurricane and Nadine jumped through hoops to accommodate our changing schedule. The beautifully restored home (select Room #1 if you can!) was so welcoming and Nadine is so knowledgeable about the island. Homemade buscuits, fresh blueberries, fruit etc. for breakfast. Great energy here. We will definitely come back.

Room Tip: Room #1 is the large room and is spacious and comfortable

This was my first time in Fogo and I'm so glad I stayed at the Quintal House in Joe Batt's Arm! Our hostess, Nadine was warm and friendly and she made us feel at home right away! Her beautifully restored heritage house is amazing and she offered a variety of home made muffins, bread, jam, etc. for breakfast. We really enjoyed our stay and will definately return! Well done Nadine!

You owe it to yourself to go to Fogo Island, it is Newfoundland as we imagine it to be! Stay at The Quintal Heritage House in Joe Batts Arm to experience Newfoundland at its best. My husband and I stayed there with my sister and her husband. We had lovely rooms furnished with comfortable beds and beautiful antique furnishings. The ensuite baths were modern where modern is good! The kitchen had everything we could want and more; the freshly baked cookies and muffins were too much to resist! Nadine, the owner, is active on Fogo Island and is a wealth of knowledge about Fogo past, present and future. Oh, be sure to go to Nicole's Cafe, next door, it has the ultimate sea food!
