Salt Cottages, which debuted last year with 30 cottages and 10 boutique motor lodge rooms, has added 10 single-level hotel rooms with private entrances, ocean views, and canopy-covered patios.

The resort is located minutes from downtown Bar Harbor, which was recently named the best small town in America by U.S. News & World Report and one of the best small towns for a summer vacation worldwide by TripsToDiscover.com.

“Demand for the Salt Cottages experience since opening last season has been strong and growing,” David Largen, chief operating officer of Atlantic Hospitality, said in a statement. “The addition of 10 new and adjacent rooms to our inventory will make it easier to accommodate groups and larger families who wish to stay close, while still maintaining the serenity of a private bungalow-style room.”

The rooms, like the resort’s cottages, feature coastal-chic designs, as well as private bathrooms with vintage-style fixtures, Cuddledown bedding, mini fridges, and in-room coffee makers.

Meanwhile, the seaside cottages with vaulted ceilings and signature red doors range in size from studios to two-bedrooms and include a kitchenette, porch, white picket fence, and outdoor garden patio.

The motor lodge rooms offer a single king bed or two queen beds.
