I stayed in Room 5, at the back of the house, with bath across the common area. My room had a sweet private balcony, a comfy bed, fridge and plenty of closet space. The hosts were there if I needed them, and other guests were friendly. Vouchers for breakfast led me to discover charming bakeries near by. A wonderful experience!... More

My wife and I stayed at this very centrally located B&B for 3 days. The owners are very helpful and accommodating. The rooms were comfortable and clean and had a TV. We enjoyed the coffee maker with all sorts of varieties of coffee and tea available. We were fine with the vouchers for breakfast as it gave one a chance... More

The Hawthorn House on Nantucket is the not a B&B! It's a house that consist of all bedrooms. There is no common area, there is no hospitality and you won't get much sleep. Upon check in you are handed $5 vouchers breakfast at 3 different coffee places/bakery. After our first night of possibly the worst sleep of my life on... More

This reviewer is being unnecessarily unkind. Exaggerations aside, she neglects to mention (according to her husband) the back surgery she recently underwent that necessitates her sleeping on a soft mattress. All of the mattresses at the Hawthorn House are firm--the industry standard. It would have been more helpful of this couple to have explained her special needs when reserving with... More

My husband just stayed at the Hawthorn House. It's in a very convenient location, right in town. The rooms are very clean. My complaint is the noise outside. We didn't go to bed early, but when we did there was so much noise on the street. In the very early morning the garbage trucks are out nesting you don't need... More

We thank this reviewer for bringing the matter regarding the A/C unit in her room to our attention. Unbeknownst to us the unit had retained some water from the hurricane that recently passed by and indeed was making noise inconsistent with normal operation. This was soon remedied with a simple tilt of the unit. We wish this reviewer had brought... More

Exactly as promised a nice room in the middle of everything. The breakfast portion of the B&B is around the corner but can't complain about the bakery. The blueberry muffins are amazing. Hawthorne House is a perfect location and setup if you spend time out and about as it allows you to drop by for a testy or to drop... More

I find it difficult to respond to reviews that flatter us in such glowing terms. We really appreciate you taking the time to review Hawthorn House in so kindly a fashion... and now I must turn away from my screen because I'm blushing crimson. Thank you Rebecca... come back soon. More

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.

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
