My wife and I just returned from a wonderful weekend in Concord at the Hawthorne Inn. Marylin and Gregory are extraordinarily warm and friendly and generous hosts, who make you feel at home the moment you arrive. We especially enjoyed our lengthy breakfasts chatting with Marylin, and the many other guests we got to meet (from both around the country and the world) around the communal breakfast table. The food was fabulous and ample, a perfect way to fortify yourself for long walks around Concord and Walden Pond. I especially enjoyed the homemade granola, the poached pear, and the delicious "leeks and lox" quiche. Plus, late afternoons featured very tasty cider and delicious treats as well, including homemade brownies and pie, ideal to enjoy in the sitting room. Our bedroom was perfect, with an extremely comfortable canopy bed and great artwork and furniture, plus a view of the fall leaves changing in the adjoining field. The Hawthorne also provides you with an excellent base to explore Concord: the Alcott house is right across the street, and Marylin gave us lots of good recommendations for things to do around town and places to eat (including the lovely Cheese Shop on Walden St).

This is an absolutely excellent Inn with wonderful hosts and an ideal spot for a getaway - everything seems like such a world away it's hard to believe you're just a short trip away from Boston. We'll definitely be returning and cannot recommend it highly enough!

We lodged at the Hawthorne Inn during the last week of September and had a wonderful experience. Marilyn happened to be in Concord Center and met us at the train depot for a lift to the B&B and the service remained great for the extent of our stay. Gregory, Marilyn, and Nicole were gracious hosts, our room was comfortable looking across to Hawthorne's Wayside, and the breakfasts were delicious and filling. I hope we have a chance to re-visit with them on our next sojourn to Concord. Mike California

This is a bed & breakfast that at best could be described as no more than "adequate." The room was small, located on a noisy street, and with a bed that squeaked every time either of us moved. The owners were civil but little more. The breakfast could only be described as "average." All in all, we were delighted to be staying for only one night.

We had a wonderful stay at the Inn. The room and the Inn oozed charm and were perfect for a Concord visit. The breakfast was wonderful (the home made granola is not to be missed), Marilyn's hospitality is unsurpassed and her recommendations for sightseeing and dinner were spot on. We will return.

Agreeing with "hypatia's" review, I would add that the hosts, Marilyn and Gregory, make one feel very welcome and are extremely helpful in guiding you to places of culinary and historical interest. The Inn is well located, the decor is eclectic and the hosts warm and interesting in themselves. A great inn for those who like a personal experience in a unique setting.
