New inn preparing to open on Fogo Island

New inn preparing to open on Fogo Island

The Shorefast Foundation started construction on a new inn on Fogo Island two years ago, and they are now getting ready to open their doors.

The wooden building has been surrounded by scaffolding for a year and a half for construction.

Shorefast CEO Tony Cobb says people were excited to finally see it taken down.

"To see their reaction when the scaffolding came down was just absolutely amazing," Cobb said. "The people were just blown away by the building."

He said the inn will be ready to open for business this spring.
