A Hawthorne Getaway

5 on February 08, 2016

Hawthorne Park B & B has a great location. It was easy to get around and there were many choices for places to visit and eat. We enjoyed the Franklin Conservatory with the orchids. The B & B had spacious rooms and it was very quiet. We selected our breakfast choices before retiring for the night. Everything was ready for us in the morning and it was delicious. The owners were very hospitable. I would highly recommend this property for a getaway.

Fantastic stay with Ron & Linda! Really great house and service and the breakfast crepes were outstanding! We have found our new favorite "in-town get away" since we are on 15 minutes away from them. It was our 14th Anniversary, and it was a blast!

I was here for a wedding and had a great time. The rooms were very nice and clean. The breakfast was fantastic and fresh made right for you when you came down. I would highly recommend this B&B.

Two couples booked this B&B, the women to shop and the men to attend an OSU football game. The accommodations were delightful, the breakfast delicious, and the innkeepers gracious and attentive. Would most certainly stay here again.

Beautiful B&B Experience

Lovely B&B in a great location for a fair price. It's a beautiful old home with a lot of character. Breakfast was very good and you could choose between three entrees. We would not hesitate to stay again.

Lovely and historical bed and breakfast

The home is lovely. Our room was beautifully decorated with a fire place and large private bath. The breakfast was wonderful. We liked the idea of choosing our breakfast from several choices. Would highly recommend.

I have stayed at the Hawthorne for a weekend getaway with my husband and I recently stayed there during the week for a business trip. Both times, the service was exceptional and the rooms are very cozy and clean.
