I stayed here two nights last week with my sisters. The owners were very accommodating to our mobility issues and the awkward times of our arrival, etc. They were friendly and helpful without being intrusive. Our rooms were well-appointed and comfortable. The parlor provided a nice space to sit and visit among ourselves as well as other guests. The food... More

I loved my stay at the Hawthorne Inn. I stayed three nights. I have celiac disease and Gregory and Marilyn went out of their way to help me stay healthy and full! I was greeted the first night I checked in with fresh GF brownies! Their hospitality was excellent, they were wonderful hosts. My room was quiet and the setting... More

The Inn is in a perfect beautiful location nestled among the historic homes of Hawthorne and Alcott and minutes from Concord center. It is filled with paintings, sculptures and incredible art. The best pieces were created by Gregory. Breakfast at the Inn is delicious and provides guests with the chance to get to know Innkeepers Gregory and Marilyn- who are... More

I loved the Hawthorne Inn, it's so beautifully "B&B", just what I'd expect from an Inn. The owners were just lovely too and perhaps because I was the only guest for the night were very generous with their time, I really felt like part of the family. I had a brilliant nights sleep in the room right on the road,... More

Adam, Thank-you for such a great review! You were here on one of the few days in February that it was not snowing: 100 inches in three weeks in Concord. It is spectacularly beautiful and we were glad that you were able to experience this record breaking snowfall. Many safe, upcoming, voyages to you. Peace, Marilyn & Gregory More

We needed a room at very short notice (20 minutes!) after the B&B we had booked failed to provide acceptable accommodation. Greg answered our call, found us a room and welcomed us warmly. Our room was comfortable, warm and exactly what we needed on a wet, cold day. We had a lovely dinner in the town and breakfast in the... More

We had booked two nights initially but upon the immediate feeling of welcome with tea and cake, local advice which added quality time to our stay and the overall ambience of Hawthorne House we asked for another night. Each room has a different feel and everywhere your eyes land there is something to ponder, without being cluttered in any way,... More

From the moment you enter the doors of this remarkable historic inn and are enveloped into the warmth and charm of the innkeepers with cookies, coffee, and literary/historical facts, you know this will be a special stay. Historic Concord provides a magnificent backdrop, of course. Literally across the street (which we could see from our room) was The Wayside, home... More

Gracious, hospitable, full of history and charm...a perfect place to celebrate our 50th wedding anniversary! Our daughters joined us for this special reunion and Marilyn and Greg made us feel like we were at home. Our rooms were clean and decorated with antiques that gave each room its own personality. They also accommodated our gluten-free breakfast requests in gourmet style.
