Brown House

Built in the early 1800's, Brown House was the first house built on Salt Cay. It was originally the home of a local salt merchant and over time has been thoroughly restored by the Salt Cay Preservation Foundation.

What to Expect

While the Brown House is closed to the general public, guests may rent the property as a villa.

The Brown House gets its name from the brown wood roof made of cedar shingles and often complimented with driftwood, shipwrecks, and other lumber found on the island. The rest of the house is generally white and comes includes an enclosed patio on the second floor, wide open grounds, and a wonderful view of the ocean.
