My husband and I stayed one night for just a quick getaway in the Emerson Room. The room was perfect....loved the fireplace. The bathroom was so nice! Quick trip to town that was really cute and quite a few restaurants. Would love to go back when everything is "fully functioning".
We stayed at The Hawthorne Inn the night before moving in to our home in the area. It was the first time we had done anything indoors since the beginning of the pandemic. Check-in and out are contactless and the property is spotless. I liked staying at a smaller property vs a large hotel where you could have contact with countless people and they have two sets of stairs if you’re staying on the second floor. The room we stayed in was large and beautifully decorated - the Alcott room - with a lovely bath. It was the first good night’s sleep I had experienced in a while. The property had several comfortable looking places to sit outside but the weather wasn’t cooperative so we didn’t get to experience that. Overall, highly recommend and would stay again if I didn’t live in town now!!…
What a gorgeous place! Everything is done to a very high standard, from the furniture to the linens, to the wallpaper and art. It's quiet, comfortable, and elegant without being stuffy. It's a nice walk into the small "downtown" area of Concord, passing by several historic homes. I can't wait to come back! They were vigilant about cleanliness and COVID-19 precautions as well; it felt very safe and clean, and we all wore masks when in the common areas. No breakfast, but we had nibbles and Nespresso coffee so it was totally fine.
Unfortunately my husband and I had to cancel our trip booked for October 2020 due to the travel risk for our age and being from Florida considered a hot spot state for the Virus. The current cancellation policy on their website states a $25 cancellation fee, however, the Inn charged us 20% of the total reservation amount versus what their current policy states. They refused to honor their own cancellation policy reverting back to their policy of October 2019 when we originally booked the reservation.
It’s been a few years since we stayed at the Hawthorne Inn, but we’re still talking about it. We truly enjoyed our visit and the owners did a great job of making us feel welcome. No detail was overlooked. The breakfast (obviously pre COVID) was very tasty, the room was elegant and clean, and rest of the inn was enchanting. If we have the pleasure of going back to Concord (an amazing historical treat itself), we’ll hope to stay again at the Hawthorne.
