The Elisha Howland Salt Box


While Mr. and Mrs. Howland had six children in their little house, we find it difficult to accommodate those numbers! Our home has a maximum occupancy of three, with a double bed upstairs and a 3/4 size bed downstairs. (A 3/4 bed is larger than a twin, but smaller than a double.)

Continuing the comparison, the Howlands' outhouse was located near the shed. As an accommodation to our times, we now have two full bathrooms, the upstairs bathroom featuring a clawfoot tub, and the downstairs offering a shower. And finally, in describing 'ladder' stairs, we mean almost straight up — see the photos! These have been managed by guests ranging from 90 years of age to gentlemen ranging to 6' 2" tall, but we want you to be aware.

Other features include:
Central heat and air, and local telephone
Cable TV, DVD, and wireless internet
Fully supplied kitchen, with full size stove and refrigerator, dishwasher, microwave, coffee maker, lobster pot, iron and ironing board
Charcoal grill
