Salt Kettle Guest House has been a family run business for more than forty years.
It’s ideal location, friendly and informal atmosphere lures visitors back each year.
Sit back and relax in one of the Adirondack chairs on the front lawn and watch the exquisite sun
as it sets over the Great Sound.
The back of Salt Kettle House is situated on a secluded bay where you can cool off in the tranquil water.
The main house has four rooms all with private bathrooms. There are four self contained cottages at the rear of the property all with water views, three of which are literally feet from the water’s edge. A full breakfast is served in the guest lounge each morning between 8am and 9 am. This is inclusive in the daily rate.
A Little History of Salt Kettle Guest House
Hazel and Bobby Lowe returned to Bermuda in 1966 after working in Africa. Bobby Lowe was a Bermudian by birth and Hazel is originally from Kent, UK. They met in Oxford where Bobby was a Rhodes Scholar and Hazel was a nurse.
They bought Salt Kettle Guest House during their lunch hour, in February 1970!
They moored their sail boat in Salt Kettle bay and they had always admired the possibilities this wonderful old property offered. They knew that with some hard work, TLC and diligence they could create a haven, a 'home-away-from-home', that visitors would want to return to year after year…and so they embarked on rejuvenating Salt Kettle Guest House.
Salt Kettle is so named after the salt trade that existed between Bermuda and the Turks and Caicos Islands . The salt was delivered by ship and unloaded in the bay at the back of the Guest House - the bay is in the shape of a kettle, thus the name. Parts of the Guest House are nearly 300 years old.
Winslow Homer painted a famous picture of the bay (Prudens Bay) in 1899.
Salt Kettle is a very much family run establishment with a home atmosphere. Hazel is still a very important part of Salt Kettle House and it is because of her warm and welcoming spirit that so many guests have been returning for so many years, some as many as thirty. Many guests consider Salt Kettle house to be their second home and everyone comments on the happy relaxed air it exudes.
Hazel has four children, Mike, Suzie, John & Jane, who all help with the day-to-day running of
this small but busy guest house.
