To know this charming bed and breakfast is to know its affable innkeeper, an English-born Bermudian named Hazel Lowe who, along with her four children, lovingly cares for the property, which sits on its own peninsula on Hamilton Harbour. She’ll check you in upon arrival, sip tea with you in the garden, and dole out island advice for newcomers who might need it. But most don’t, as the vast majority of Salt Kettle patrons are return guests who’ve come back for the inn’s affordable rooms, peaceful surroundings, and picturesque water views of Prudens Bay (Winslow Homer famously painted a landscape of the bay in 1899). The 200-year-old main house has four small rooms with en-suite bathrooms and some with water view balconies, while the rest of the property features four private cottages with fully equipped kitchens, living rooms, and private water view patios.
