Featuring 15 cozy guest rooms, the space "bridges its historic setting with modern amenities and chic decor," says co-owner David Bowd. “Using our own travel experiences as a guide, we focused on the amenities people value in hotels, such as custom mattresses, luxury bedding and great showers. We combined those with the service and intimate surroundings of an inn to create something truly unique.”
The 19th-century building was originally comprised of cottages for salt mine workers (hence the name) and evolved over the years into a guesthouse. The focal point of each whitewashed guest room is a signature 'wall of curiosities'—curated collections of vintage art and found objects that reflect the flavor and heritage of the region. All rooms offer spacious bathrooms with spa-like amenities, i.e. walk-in showers and rain showerheads. Natural bath products from C.O. Bigelow and LA's Further round out the experience.
The breakfast room hosts guests every morning for a gourmet feast of homemade pastries, savory treats, yogurt, and granola prepared by co-owner Kevin O’Shea, the inn’s interior designer and chef. The newly landscaped grounds offer al fresco dining, an outdoor lounge, and a large second floor sun terrace. “My vision for Salt House Inn was a modern interpretation of traditional colonial aesthetics, mixed with the feeling of a breezy Cape Cod beach cottage,” said O’Shea. “The design is stylish and charming yet inviting and comfortable.”
