My family and I stayed one night in February and absolutely loved it! I've had my eye on this place for years and am so happy to have finally been able to stay the night. It was everything I had imagined and more! Right in the middle of town, we were able to go out for a late dinner and... More

My wife and I stayed here over New Year's and had a wonderful stay. Mitch and Diane made us feel very welcome and the room was very comfortable. The mini-fridge in the room was a nice surprise. We will absolutely stay here again in the future.

My husband and I stayed at the Hawthorn House for one night in September. The location is great, just a few blocks from the ferry, easily walkable with luggage. The room was clean, the bathroom was up to date. You get a voucher toward breakfast which is good at 3 local places - we got quiche and pastries from the... More

Thank you for your favorable review. We apologize for our neighbors construction but are glad that we could reposition you in the house for your maximum comfort. The good news is the construction is finished so, the next time you visit Nantucket, if you choose to stay at the Hawthorn House, it should be quiet. More

We stayed at the Hawthorn House recently and chose it primarily for the price and location. We stayed on the first floor in room 2 which led onto the side porch. Our bathroom could use updating and I when I peeked in the other first floor room , that bath had been. The owners were onsite during the day to... More

Diane and Mitch were very nice, and our Room 8 was a delight to stay in. Quaint old style, but looked new. Everything was clean and the shower had plenty of pressure. Right in the heart of downtown, and even let us keep our luggage for the day after checkout. Loved it!

Thanks for pointing out that the quietest rooms in the Hawthorn House are on the third floor... so are the best views... which includes a peek of Nantucket's harbor from one of the bathrooms. More

We made last minute reservations (3 days prior) in peak season (mid August) for 2 rooms - one for us and one for our two teenage kids. The room set-ups were perfect as they had a twin bedded room option for our kids. They offer everything you need - comfortable bed, TV, A/C and they are extremely well located practically... More

We booked four nights in July to celebrate our 25th anniversary. The inn is lovely, and innkeepers Mich and Diane were wonderful. The side porch became our "go to" spot in the evenings where we could chill out and enjoy watching people walk on the street, converse with other guests, and enjoy the air. Our room (#2) was nicely decorated,... More

I booked the Hawthorn House for a June, midweek visit. We were very pleased with the location, price and charm of the room and house. Our time in Nantucket was really wonderful; good food, great weather and wonderful hosts. They made it hard to leave. We are hoping to return with the rest of the family.

I was thrilled by my experience this past March at the Hawthorn House. In the winter there are not a lot of options on Nantucket, but no matter the time of year this is the place to stay! The location is fantastic; in the heart of town and within walking distance to everything that area has to offer. Mitch and... More

Thank you Matt for you kind review of Hawthorn House. Our industry is more and more leaning towards an austere esthetic which we reject so it makes us happy when people such as yourself recognize our effort to inject more character into our product. We are proud to offer the public an authentic Nantucket guesthouse experience. More
