My mother and I stayed several days at the Hawthorne House. The location is fabulous; a side street with very little traffic, only a few blocks from Main Street and pretty much in the center of the downtown shopping and restaurant district. We chose Room 1 on the first floor because it had two beds, something which is usually fairly difficult to find in B&Bs. We liked our room, tho it was very cozy; there wasn't a whole lot of space in the room beyond the beds.
It had wide pine floors and charming decor. The bathroom was adequate, but it didn't come anywhere near matching the sleeping area in terms of decor/charm (rolled flooring, nondescript vanity & sink).
The price seemed very reasonable for a town which was otherwise very pricey.
As others have mentioned, the Hawthorne House doesn't feed you breakfast on site, but instead they give you coupons to use at one of two restaurants in town. This is a real treat as it allows you to eat on your own schedule and gives you a wider range of choices than a B&B breakfast probably would.
We ate the first morning at Arno's on Main and loved it. We were very disappointed the next two mornings to find that Arno's has chosen not to open for breakfast those two mornings--probably because it was still the off-season, and so we ate at the other breakfast choice, Even Keel, which didn't match the atmosphere and charm of Arno's, but which was very busy and seemed to be a local favorite.
The major drawback of our particular room (on the main floor) was noise. This property is on a side street, so there isn't as much traffic as one would hear on a busier thoroughfare, but we were startled pretty early one morning (5 or 6?) by something that sounded like a street sweeper. And, while we didn't hear a whole lot of traffic on the street, our door was right next to the front door of the establishment, so we did hear a good bit of coming and going by other patrons. I am a fairly heavy sleeper, but my mother (who is a light sleeper) was bothered by the noise of other patrons at the B&B. I would suggest that anyone who has sleeping issues not select either of the ground floor rooms at the Hawthorne House as both have their doors right by the entrance door.
