We have been going to the Hawthorne for a number of years, last year with the change of management, we were hesitant going back. Our friends convinced us we had to and we are extremely happy that we did. The new management is fantastic, the place looks great and the staff was incredible. We were so happy we booked next...

This has been our 12th year staying at The Hawthorne. We stay for a week each summer. It's the best kept secret in Chatham (or the Cape for that matter)! The view cannot be explained, it's just spectacular. The hotel sits on a hill for a panoramic view of Chatham Harbor and South Beach. There is nothing better than coming... More

This is truly a hidden gem. The Hawthorne is located right on the beach. The views are spectacular; it's walking distance to the Main St. with lots of great restaurants. You can walk to the fish market to get fresh fish and cook it on the outside grill located right on the property. The rooms are very clean and well... More

We had an awesome experience at the Hawthorne. Scott and Stephanie went above and beyond to insure our stay was wonderful. We had four rooms for our family. We felt the rooms were very clean and comfortable. The air conditioning worked well. It was quiet every night. We had fresh towels for the room and for the beach every day.... More

We chose The Hawthorne because it's within walkable distance to Chatham and is on a beach. The proximity to Main St. Is great, the beach not so much. Seaweed and some trash line the beach, because of the sandbar, water is stagnant On weekends it's more like a boaters' beach, with many boats lining swimming access . Sleep quality is... More

My boyfriend and I stayed at this hotel for a week in July, and it turned out to be an excellent choice! The hotel was easy to find, sits right on the beach, yet only a short walk away from Main street, making it a very convenient location. All units face the ocean, giving us a spectacular view on the... More

So happy to be able to find an opening truly last minute. Scott and his wife were so accommodating and we had a fantastic time. Definitely wake up for one of the spectacular sunrises over the ocean.. well worth it. Can't beat the location, location, location!! Short walk to town and beaches, but access to a private beach steps away... More
