Response from Meg_and_Russ, Owner at Martin Hill Inn
Responded 1 week ago
Thank you! Yes, we do not have a public area. It was converted into a guest room well before we came on the scene. Most people come to see the city, and so are out the door as soon as breakfast is over. But if you do want to just hang out and it isn't summer so our garden seating isn't inviting (or even there) then make sure that one of the rooms you book is Noonday. It has an attached sun porch which makes a dandy little chatting area.
