Welcome to the Hawthorne Inn. We are a boutique bed & breakfast situated on Concord’s historic mile, just steps away from the heart of American Literary and Revolutionary history; on land once owned by Ralph Waldo Emerson, Bronson Alcott and Nathaniel Hawthorne. The property was built in the 1860’s and has been functioning as a bed and breakfast for more than 40 years. Inspired by design and elegance, the Inn has recently been fully renovated to incorporate 7 luxury guest rooms and ample shared public spaces to create a truly unique experience for our guests. We offer the perfect balance of elegance, charm and privacy whilst still being within walking distance of Concord’s Historic Center, the Old North Bridge, the homes of Concord’s most famous writers and the Minuteman National Park. We aim to offer a luxury and unique all season experience to our guests whether they are tourists visiting for the spring/summer/fall season or business guests visiting many of the multi-national corporations located in the area.

This was my second visit to Concord. Stayed at the Hawthorne again- the place is perfect. I would not stay anywhere else. Location is ideal. I didn't have time to stay for breakfast so they backed me a to go bag for my trip. How sweet is that??

Kris and Michael are so adorable ... we have stayed at other Bed and Breakfasts where hosts were emotionally checked out and not wanting to connect with their guests. We felt like welcome friends the minute we walked in the door. Kris’s bubbly personality and energetic demeanor

Kris is a wonderful hostess- youthful, and capable, and obviously genuinely happy to host. This is what you want in a historical town B &B. The rooms are simply beautiful and wonderfully newly redone while retaining old antique touches. The fireplace was a plus, the bathroom
