I first read about this sweet little escape on the blog Design*Sponge. As we head into what is expected to be a very cold winter in the Northeast I am already dreaming about spring getaways. The Salt House Inn, both charming and completely under-embellished, would be ideal for a weekend away. Located in Provincetown, Massachusetts and dating back to 1850 the building was once cottages for 19th century salt mine workers. The weathered shingle exteriors and minimally decorated rooms evoke a strong sense of history mixed with beachy ease. The space is the brainchild of two men with well-complimented talents. When hotel industry entrepreneur David Bowd and interior designer Kevin O’Shea were vacationing in Provincetown back in 2011 they noticed there was a dearth of simple yet stylish places to stay. That’s when the two decided to buy the property where the Inn is now located and create their dream weekend locale. Kevin designed the inn from top to bottom and the aesthetic is perfect for someone like me who has clutter in every corner of my home. I dream of staying somewhere with minimal decorations and not an extra item in sight. I love the idea of meandering down to the breakfast room for a meal of locally sourced simple foods at the “sharing table”. I would linger in the back garden with coffee for hours and then head to the tip of Cape Cod beach for a long walk afterwards. The Salt House Inn is currently undergoing renovations but it is due to reopen in April of this spring. Just in time for a little weekend getaway without kids. My new baby will be almost 6 months by then. Perfect timing!
