Are the Social Hall and Commercial Kitchen available year-round?

Yes, guests are encouraged to use the Social Hall/Arcade and Commercial Kitchen year-round. The building has electricity and lights, but is heated via a large stone fireplace and space heaters in the cooler months. The commercial kitchen and adjoining restrooms have no running water in the winter, so guests are encouraged to cater meals and/or use the residences’ kitchens and bathrooms. (The water pipes to the non-heated buildings are shut off when the weather dips below 32 degrees, to avoid the pipes freezing.)
