I have to say, I wish the most recent reviews had been available when we were booking, as we may have chosen elsewhere. Like the recent reviews implied, we too were disappointed. Tiny room on the ground floor with NOWHERE to put larger cases for...More

Response from Man-from-Nantucket, Owner at Hawthorn HouseResponded 12 October 2017

Hawthorn House was built in 1849. The rooms are small when compared to 21st century expectations. We remind people of this fact often in our responses to their reviews. Our website provides photographs of every room we rent so there are no surprises. We are...More

After many B&B stays, this is the first time that it was simply "all business." Full payment required before we even went to the room. A little off-putting considering we made a 50% deposit and have never walked out on a business. It's a clean,...More

Thank you for your honest review. In terms of our being "all business" please know that the first thing that any hotel or motel does upon check-in is to ask for a photo ID and a credit card. They reason they don't charge your balance...More
