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

I recently stayed at Hawthorn House with a friend. First and foremost, the location is really fantastic, we loved being so close to everything that downtown Nantucket has to offer. We knew that there would be only vouchers for breakfast and we enjoyed using them at two of the three establishments for which they were valid. Our room was comfortable... More

We just stayed 3 nights and highly recommend. The Cubbyhole at The Hawthorn House is more of a studio apartment and while we didn't take advantage of the stove, fridge or rest of the kitchen, it was great to have. There's an AC window unit which works well and was necessary during this trip. There's a bike rack to lock... More

From the service to the location, everything about my stay at HH was wonderful! Mitch and Dianne have created a warm and welcoming atmosphere, at their quintessential ACK inn. Everyone on the HH team is kind and helpful; and the inn itself is filled with local history and art (including some pieces by the owners!).
