This was the second trip we took to the Martha and it met every expectation. This is a great old building with interesting rooms and groups and all the amenities we could ask for. The room was large, clean and well furnished with impressive furniture. One drawback was that we were on the upper floor which is not reached by the elevator and there were a few flights of stairs. If going up stairs is an issue, future guests should discuss their limitations with the front desk in advance.
We went to the spa and enjoyed a massage which was done by two professionals who knew their business and did a great job. One of us had forgotten a swim suit so we didn't experience the hot tub or the salt-water pool. That night we went to the Barter Theater, across the street, for a professional level play.
On the second day, we had the shuttle take us and our bikes to the top of the Virginia Creeper trail which gives you about an 18 mile downhill bike ride through the woods. This was wonderful and something not to be missed. If you don't have a bike, they rent them as well. If was too bad that the spa was closed on Sunday or we would have taken advantage of another one of their services. That night we ate at the restaurant in the hotel which was very good and worth trying.
The Martha is an excellent hotel and spa and will cost you a few bucks. We chose the spa package and added the theater. Looking at the packages is worth the time. We are looking forward to returning sometime in the future.
