  • Top ChoiceLodging in Fogo Island & Change Islands

    Fogo Island Inn

    The Fogo Island Inn is a groundbreaking exploration of the concept of local sourcing. Everything in this place comes from at least as close as Newfoundland, including the community guides every visiting party is paired with. Architecturally, the Inn is a jaw-dropper, starkly minimalist yet growing organically from the rugged island landscape.

It's only 8km from the Viking site.

    Leaside Manor

    The rooms in this old merchant's home have been updated with boutique-hotel contemporary flourishes, including big tubs, plush beds (some with canopies), fireplaces, sitting areas and Jacuzzis, which explains why the Globe and Mail designated Leaside one of Canada's 'most romantic destinations.' Each room has its own individual vibe, but they're all plush and comfortable.

  • Lodging in St John's

    JAG

    What's not to like about a hotel that blasts the Stones or Dylan in the lobby? This rock-and-roll-themed boutique hotel occupies a tall multistory building with harbor views.

    This property manages several accommodations throughout town: a main inn with clean, understated but attractive rooms; several guest cottages (minimum two-night stay); and 'glamping' in eco pods – effectively, nicely renovated studio shacks – with solar lighting. All of the options are well executed and comfortable.

    A stunning 1904 Queen Anne-revival mansion, this sprawling house full of antiques and stained-glass windows makes for a subdued stay.

    Blue on Water

    One of the more stylish hotels in the St John's lineup, Blue on Water has all the fresh, modern dressings the hip hotel-hopper desires: crisp white sheets, exposed brick, distressed accents, and a downstairs bar that attracts the attractive. The central location on Water St (imagine that) is a serious draw.
