This was just as advertised, and overall my wife and I enjoyed our time at Hawthorn House. For our first time to the Island this was a great location. The room was island small as expected, but the back porch on the first floor was a wonderful surprise. We sat out there after our walks and tours an enjoyed the...

I've stayed at HH a few times in the past and will be visiting them a few times this year as well. Diane & Mitch are super nice and my room has always been very clean and comfortable. I like staying upstairs because there's a nice little couch area to lounge in, and room 5 is my favorite because the...

Thank you for your kind review of Hawthorn House. Your information is accurate and should be very helpful to your fellow travelers. I love it when our guests write better advertising copy than I do. See you soon.

Staying at this husband and wife-owned seaside inn inevitably feels like you're being welcomed into a warm family home. It is conveniently located within walking distance from the ferry and downtown Nantucket, among countless shops, bakeries, and the island's best restaurants. It is clean, well-kept, and decorated with eclectic and nautical decor that will be sure you draw you in...

5 day stay in a perfect location. Conscientious, unobtrusive innkeepers. Beautiful, comfortable, well appointed room, and a nice common sitting area. Beach towels available. We wished there was an option to keep towels rather than get daily new ones. Otherwise, a first rate place.

Between my spouse, her mother, and myself, we stayed in 2 rooms. Spouse and mother stayed in the main house, while I stayed in their cubbyhole. The cubbyhole was fantastic, though admittedly tight. With kitchen area and small sitting area, it was the gathering point for the 3 of us. We could eat in, carry in, or cook as we...

Sweet little room with a small private balcony in the back. Loved the location right in the heart of downtown. Stayed 2 nights in May before the crowds and it was perfect. Opted for the detached, private bathroom - which was fine even though it was across the sitting room from our 2nd floor room. But it was clean, which...

I stayed here from May 5th to the 8th. This house was built in 1856 which seems young to its surrounding buildings. Although used to the larger rooms of Hilton and Marriott where I commonly stay at, this was a very nice and relaxing change up which complimented downtown Nantucket itself! The house is very well maintained and staff warm...

We visit Nantucket every year and we have stayed at a different BnB every time. We stayed at the Hawthorn House because it was rated one of the top 5 on the island. Not for us. Where to begin? First it isn't really a BnB. A $5 coupon to be redeemed at a coffee shop is not breakfast. The house...

We spent three nights at the Hawthorn House in May. It was the perfect place for us to stay. Comfortable and clean rooms, helpful staff, great rates and an awesome location. There isn't a restaurant but they provided a voucher for breakfast at an in-town cafe. One day we picked up some snacks and Cisco Brewery beers from the market...
