With my home in Atlanta and my office in Acton, MA- you can imagine how fortunate I feel to have found a second home at the Hawthorne Inn in nearby Concord. I consider myself blessed to have been a regular at the Inn for over 6 years, having found not only a wonderful respite from corporate hotels but also a lifelong friendship with Gregory and Marilyn the owners.
I can't say enough good things about the Inn or my experiences there- it would take volumes to describe the historical house itself with 7 warm, inviting rooms (I've enjoyed them all- each with it's own unique character), the beautiful private grounds and gazebo , the incredible art and decor, the fellowship and friends made around the common table, the wonderful warm breakfasts with seasonal specialties, the proximity to Concord......... but nothing compares to the spirit and hospitality that the owners themselves bring to this unique experience.They've shared directions, dinner recommendations, local historical expertise, art history, amusing stories, help of any kind needed as well as picked up arriving guests at the train station, helped with travel plans, brought hot tea and aspirin and nursed me through a virus, and made me feel genuinely welcome and appreciated.
I've been traveling the world weekly for over 25 years and have found no comparable place on any continent.
