a small hotel in downtown Nantucket Island


about us

Hawthorn House is Nantucket’s first and only invisible service hotel, which gives guests the best price in a perfect downtown location.  Hawthorn House was built in 1849 and has been providing the best downtown location for travelers to Nantucket since 1920.  Under new ownership since 2018, Hawthorn House is proud to continue its tradition of providing comfortable rooms and giving our guests a great base for experiencing everything a Nantucket vacation can offer!

We cater to independent travelers who prefer spend more of their time exploring the island.  From our front door, Hawthorn House is just steps to dozens of galleries, boutique shops, world class restaurants, and beautiful museums.  

Loved my stay at Hawthorn House! The location is ideal, and surprisingly quiet. I could walk everywhere, and when I couldn’t I rented a bike nearby to tour the rest of the island.
