I used to visit the Hawthorne every summer growing up and it's memories I will cherish forever. I really am looking forward to binging my girlfriend up for a romantic get away. The quaint town, and the amazing private beach are unforgettable.

We stayed at the Hawthorne over Columbus Day weekend. The staff and management were great. We had an ocean view room. The view of the ocean is past the view of the parking lot and lawn. Still beautiful. The room was fresh and clean, no mildew odors which can be a problem at some Cape motels. The bathroom was squeaky... More

We had four days at The Hawthorne in late September, this coming after a busy coach tour through the South. As it was just after the summer season, the Cape itself was nice and quiet, but it was a sign of the reputation of this little motel that the place itself was close to full. Not that that mattered, for... More

This is our new favorite escape! Centrally located in Cape Cod, the views are stunning. Sunrises are beautiful! (especially when the seals are swimming about!) Rooms are clean and comfy! Staff was very helpful. Restaurants in the area are in walking distance..no need to look for parking!

Hawthorne is right on the sea, about a 1/2 mile walk into the edge of town for a restaurant. We were exploring the Cape this week and decided to stay there rather than drive back to Boston. Chatham was pricey, pretty and a quiet respite from Provincetown. Because we were here off-season, the nightly rate here was better, but even... More

We visited Chatham for a friend's wedding and the Hawthorne was recommended as one of the places to stay for the wedding guests. It was right on the water and had beautiful views. We were there when it was cold but if it had been nice enough to go to the beach they had everything right there; chairs, towels, umbrellas,... More

My husband and I stayed at the Hawthorne on Oct. 15th and 16th and had a wonderfully peaceful stay! We flew into Burlington, VT and rented a car and drove from Burlington to Stowe (Trapp Family Lodge), then to the Mt.

We thoroughly enjoyed our stay. The location is wonderful and Chatham is a charming Cape Cod village. We loved waking up to the sun rising over the nearby bay and watching fishing boats head out for their daily catch. We could walk down to the beach to get a closer look at nearby seals or birds or starfish. The motel... More

This a a beautiful location. The recent 5 Day stay was very pleasurable stay.Only a couple of minor issues. First was that we did not have a ocean view or near ocean view room. Confusion with reservation system on my part may have caused this. Make sure you reserve a ocean view room. Once we were in the room we... More

Old style highway inn, well cared for with comfortable rooms. Beautiful views, great lawn and private beach for lounging, BBQ. Best of all was the friendly and helpful staff. I would not hesitate to recommend this to anyone (except maybe complete snobs). :-D 0.4 miles to downtown and eateries.
