Welcome You to Martin Hill Inn!

The only true bed and breakfast in the downtown area

Closed through the End of April

We are closed through the end of April.  The Martin Hill Inn is owner-occupied, so not only is it a lovely bed and breakfast but it is also our residence.  And in the age of CoViD-19 inviting strangers over to stay in your house does not seem wise.

We are still accepting online reservations, so if you need to let your inner optimist loose for a little exercise we can oblige.  To make it easier for your optimistic side to shine we are suspending our cancellation policies until further notice.  Any deposit is fully refundable as long as we get one days notice.  Or you can reschedule without fees or penalties.  Knowing that you have a weekend stay in historic Portsmouth to look forward to is a great tonic for cabin fever.

We will be reopening on May 1st, armed with hand sanitizer, disinfectant wipes, delicious breakfasts and the spring garden in all its glory.


Make your visit to New England memorable with a stay at our bed and breakfast in Portsmouth, New Hampshire. Situated just a 10-minute walk into downtown’s Market Square, our B&B is your home away from home while exploring more than 380 years of New England history.

Located only an hour from Portland, Manchester, and Boston, Portsmouth is home to some of the seacoast’s best local shops, theatre and musical attractions, historic homes, and finest restaurants. Our friendly and helpful staff is always happy to suggest local attractions and make reservations at the area’s best restaurants based on your unique tastes and interests.

We accept Visa, MasterCard, Amex, and Discover!

Inside our two early 19th-century buildings, each of the guest rooms is uniquely appointed and features a luxurious queen or king bed, private en-suite bath, reading chairs, original artwork and antiques, as well as modern conveniences such as end-table refrigerators, complimentary Wi-Fi and flat-screen TVs.

Our two-course full breakfast is served in our inviting dining room.  We offer such epicurean delights as homemade muffins and scones;  and peach-raspberry crumble; savory omelets and quiche; mouth-watering waffles, pancakes and stuffed French Toast.  We are proud to offer locally grown and locally sourced food.  With advanced notice, we are pleased to offer gluten-free, vegetarian, vegan, or lactose-free breakfasts for our guests.  Breakfast is included in the room rate.

On a warm summer afternoon, savor a glass of wine or a refreshing ice tea in our cool shade gardens, while discussing dinner plans or tomorrow’s activities. A hot coffee or fresh pot of loose-leaf tea and homemade cookies await your return to Martin Hill Inn on a snowy afternoon.

We look forward to helping you explore the town that National Geographic Traveler Magazine ranked #6 on its list of Most Historic Places in the United States.  See you soon.

#1 Frequently Asked Question:  How far is the Inn from downtown Market Square and the Portsmouth shops and restaurants?  Answer:  10-15 minute walk or 1/2 mile.

About the Innkeepers:   Russ & I bought the B&B on November 22, 2013.  We have had a very successful 5th year – completed some renovations and are in the process of others.  Once again, the garden really came through!  As we head into our sixth year, Russ and I (Meg) want to thank our guests, our friends, including all of you who have connected with us on social media, and local businesses and people who have been so welcoming and supportive.  Thank you!   Meg & Russ
