We are a boutique bed & breakfast situated on Concord’s historic mile, just steps away from the heart of American Literary and Revolutionary history; on land once owned by Ralph Waldo Emerson, Bronson Alcott and Nathaniel Hawthorne. The property was built in the 1860’s and has been functioning as a bed and breakfast for more than 40 years. Inspired by design and elegance, the Inn has recently been fully renovated to incorporate 7 luxury guest rooms and ample shared public spaces to create a truly unique experience for our guests. We offer the perfect balance of elegance, charm and privacy whilst still being within walking distance of Concord’s Historic Center, the Old North Bridge, the homes of Concord’s most famous writers and the Minuteman National Park. We aim to offer a luxury and unique all season experience to our guests whether they are tourists visiting for the spring/summer/fall season or business guests visiting many of the multi-national corporations located in the area. Check In from 15:00 until 20:00 (3pm until 8pm)

recently spent one night at the inn and found it to be beautifully restored, well managed and conveniently situated for trips around Boston.

I stayed at Hawthorne while attending The sound of Music in May with friends. I love the décor of bringing the Old with the New....such exquisite taste in furnishings and art work. My room was just lovely and absolutely spotless! The bedding was luscious and I slept like a baby! The breakfast the next morning was absolutely delicious, everything homemade and obvious that thought went into the preparation and presentation! Toni and Mark are gracious and warm, and I plan or returning again and again!

Our two night anniversary stay at the Hawthorne inn was outstanding. MARK and Toni were delightful and most helpful. They had recently remodeled the inn and it was beautiful. Top to bottom. The bed was very comfortable. The breakfasts were simple but delicious. We were surprised that there were no TVs in the brain. We did get a lot of reading done among other things. We loved Concord.

My husband and I stayed here for a baby moon “staycation.” The location of this property is perfect for a getaway with low-key restaurants and lots of historical sites nearby. The B&B was amazingly decorated and very relaxing. We enjoyed tea by the fire and relished the peace and quiet. Our room was very cozy and quite large. Breakfast was excellent especially the homemade quiche. We would love to return to this B&B and would absolutely recommend a stay to others.

This was our second stay at the Hawthorne Inn and it was as great as the first time. Toni & Mark are warm and welcoming and responsive. Breakfast is delicious and interesting. Most notable is that the rooms and common areas are beautifully appointed in a manner that is comfortable and not pretentious. Dan & Amy Clements

The Inn was breathtaking; spotless clean! There was not one detail that Toni missed. Toni & Mark make the Inn. Wonderful breakfast, beautiful presentation, great conversation. I cannot say enough about The Hawthorne Inn. My husband and I cannot wait to return. Beautiful central location for our sightseeing in Concord. Mark & Toni were well versed of the area. We could not have asked for more! Thank you Toni & Mark. Susan & Bob Wright, Skaneateles, New York.

We had friends from out of town in for the weekend and put them up at the newly amazing Hawthorne Inn. Concord has never had a place so hip, stylish, and cozy all at once. Mark and TonI have everything covered and are as fabulous as the Inn!

We just spent a lovely weekend here, where we were warmly hosted by Toni and Mark. The Inn, which was recently restored, has a historic sensibility with an open feeling and a modern palette and furnishings. We relaxed in the library one evening by the fireside, sipping coffee and munching on Toni's biscotti. Breakfast was as delicious as its presentation - the lemon pound cake, yogurt, homemade granola, and manchego with quince paste were my favorites. We look forward to our next visit!
Thank you so much for your wonderful review, it made us very happy!!

For a mid-week, mid-winter getaway, my husband and I stayed overnight here. We stayed in the Emerson room, which features both a fireplace and a deep soaking tub. The bed and bed linens were sumptuous and we both had a deep, restful sleep. We had lovely baths in the morning. Such a slow, luxurious way to start the day! The whole inn is so beautifully decorated with a real love of color and design that still honors an older, traditional home. Our breakfast was amazing! Fresh coffee, tea, juice and sliced fruit. There was homemade granola, freshly baked bread (still warm!) yogurt and muffins. The dining room was sunny, our breakfast superb and best of all was chatting to host Toni. This is a very warm welcoming home and you will be so happy to stay over! I can't wait to go again.
Come back soon! Thanks so much for your kind words
