As early as the 17th century, pirates and privateers would bring salt used to preserve meat and fish to Bermuda and store it in homes on an aptly named peninsula called Salt Kettle. This house was one of them, with parts of it dating back 200 years. These days, it’s a quaint guesthouse that’s been run by the same family for nearly a half century, with traditionally furnished rooms and cottages some of which are right on the water. Don’t expect any bells and whistles here, but that’s exactly the point. Salt Kettle House is a little slice of tranquility not far from the hustle and bustle of Hamilton (the public ferry dock to get to the city is steps from the innn).
