Had a wedding at Chatham Bars Inn over Columbus Day Weekend and decided to make a little getaway trip out of it - the Hawthorn was PERFECT! It's still a little pricier than staying "in town" in chatham, but for 2 of us it was perfect and MUCH cheaper than Chatham Bars Inn with possibly better views?!

The staff was friendly and helpful. The rooms were immaculate and changed each day. The beds were very comfortable and clean and the owners accommodated some of the special need we had (arriving late) quickly and with no fuss. Also, when I was booking, they replied promptly and answered all my questions - even calling me to make sure we were all set.

I look forward to staying here again and absolutely recommend it to people looking to have a nice stay in Chatham, right on the water.

Room Tip: You will pay less if you don't get a water view room - but you can access the water as there is...

Our 3 night stay at the Hawthorn was perfect. Lovely, large room with a king bed and small kitchenette. Walking distance to town and restaurants and a beautiful view right on the water. The off season special rate of $150 was a bargain.

Enjoyed our stay at the Hawthorne. Great room, great view of the water.
Owners on site take pride in their property and very helpful directing us to local restaurants and shops. Rooms are clean and grounds are well kept with chairs to soak in the view.

Thanks Gil and Ellie for a great place to stay on our visit to the Cape.

The Hawthorne sits right on the water and most rooms will have a view of the boats and sunrise. There is a lovely lawn and patio where you can relax; coffee and tea and fruit set out in the lobby/living room area in the morning. It is easy to walk into town and to the lighthouse and very central for driving to the other Cape areas of Provincetown and Hyannis. The room we had included a kitchenette which is nice for beverages and snacks but the space was a bit tight around the bed. Not a big problem considering you really don't spend much time in the room.

Room Tip: Make sure to request a room with a view of the water.

What a lovely view from our room. We were last minute stay and we were treated as if we had made reservations months in advance. Clean spacious room (ours did not have kitchenette) with a great view of water. Private beach and beach towels provided. We just loved our stay. The y have a list of local restaurants in lobby with menus and were very helpful. A jewel on the beach.

Room Tip: all seem to have views. Must ask for kitchenette.

A great motel with a beautiful view. 5 minute drive from Chatham Lighthouse Sand beach. Not to be missed. It's a gorgeous beach with a photogenic red and black house.

The room was decorated like a beach cottage. It had a kitchenette if you wanted to cook instead of dining out.

We had a side view of the ocean. If you can, request a room with a direct view of the water.

I would also suggest driving to Provincetown. It's a charming walking area. Don't miss the Pilgrim monument. The view from the top was amazing. It was modeled after the tower in Sienna, Italy.
