“Fantastic Nantucket standard”
Reviewed July 5, 2007

We've been to Nantucket several times and ALWAYS try to stay at the Hawthorn House. The inn is charming, clean and conveniently located in the heart of downtown. I can't say enough good things about this inn.

  • Liked — convenience, cleanliness and charm

The Hawthorn House is where to stay on Nantucket. My husband and I recently spent a long weekend with Mitch and Diane Carl (the owners/innkeepers) as our wonderfully knowledgable and helpful hosts. This inn is spotlessly clean (always my #1 priority), cozy and entirely decorated a la Nantucket for a truly homey experience. Try to stay in the blue room on the top floor if it's not booked, we loved it! Right in the middle of town, the Hawthorn House's central location allows visitors the perfect vantage point for seeing town or walking to beautiful beaches (Beaches right next to town! a 5-minute walk! Who has heard of such a thing?). Top-notch.

  • Liked — the inkeepers
  • Disliked — having to leave
  • Tips/Secrets — inkeepers are islanders, listen to them b/c they know the place!

I was thrilled with the Hawthorn House when we stayed in Nantucket. We stayed in a two room suite and it had everything we needed. You could not beat the location, it was in the MIDDLE of everything, but it was quiet. It was neat and clean, and the beds and bath were very nice. It was not new, and the common area is very small, and not a place I would hang out in, but the rooms were great. We weren't in Nantucket to hang out in our B&B. I would recommend it to anyone looking for a great place at a reasonable price.

Stayed August 2006

Just like staying with family, however, still very private, but so close to everything, that one's stay is a wonderful & fulfilling taste of Nantucket's treasures.
