Clean room; kind hosts. Instead of bfast, offer vouchers to three cafes in town, which was nice and plenty of money on them to take care of bfast each day! Daily room service, too. Can't beat the location, and wasn't noisy at night (and we were on the first floor, front room). Would rec this place to others!

Location is excellent. I suppose this place is affordable, for Nantucket. The rooms are decorated to look old...old fashioned wallpaper and such, but the carpet and bedding and all new and the bathroom is relatively modern. Bed comfortable. Window AC unit does the job and also helps block out external noise. No restaurant or food service of any kind on... More

Thank you for this accurate review. Affordable is relative, especially in season. Within a block of us you could pay more than twice what we charge for a similar room. We're open all year long so when the summer madness is over the rates are scaled back by almost 2/3rds ... When describing our decor we like to say the... More

My husband and I stayed here for a long weekend while we attended a friend's wedding. This was one of the cheapest places we came across, although I dare use that word when describing anything in Nantucket. We were in a small corner room that had a small balcony but no bathroom. Our bathroom was located across the hall. We... More

Why would you go to Nantucket and not stay in an old Nantucket house? You can select your room when you book. We had room #2 just inside the front door. It had a side door on to a porch and was very comfortable. You could throw a stone to the information office, the Whaling Museum was very close and... More

The descriptions of this property offered by the owners are pretty accurate. It is small and very centrally located. The rooms are small. There are few amenities. But if you don't need a lot of space, it is a pretty good value for what it is. There is no breakfast offered - you can make a cup of Keurig coffee,... More

Was only there for one night and so enjoyed myself. The people were very friendly and super helpful. Really wanted me to enjoy my stay on the island. My ferry was leaving at a later time than check out so they let me store my luggage so that I could continue to explore.

This trip was over the Christmas Stroll weekend. The weather could not have been better and the entire trip was fantastic. Hawthorne House is just a couple blocks off of Main Street and convenient to all town restaurants and shops. The inn is very quaint and was quiet even though we were in town. The innkeeper was polite and did... More

Comfortable, cozy, quaint. Centrally located, minutes' walk away from the grocery, bike rental, museum, or any of the restaurants. All you could ask for in such an interesting, historic town. Great stay.

My boyfriend and I recently visited Nantucket for the first time, and both really enjoyed staying at the Hawthorn House. Our room was clean with nice bedding, and had a good-sized balcony - perfect for morning coffee. Our room had the detached bathroom, which was no pain at all. I brought a robe, but they also provide them. The owners... More
