Booking Rooms for October 2021


If you are interested in booking a room at the historic Hawthorne Hotel for October 2021, please read the following information carefully. There is a very high demand for weekends in October, and we offer returning guests the opportunity to re-book before making the rooms available to the general public. Don’t let the demand for rooms deter you! If you are able to visit during the week, you will find greater room availability and shorter wait times at popular attractions.

A non-refundable deposit representing one-night of your stay is required for all reservations that include a Saturday night in October. In the event you need to cancel your reservation, this deposit will be forfeited and kept by the Hawthorne Hotel as a cancellation fee. There is a two night minimum for weekend stays (Friday + Saturday or Saturday + Sunday) in October. During the week, however, we welcome guests who may be looking for a shorter visit. As of November 15, there is plenty of weekday availability next October, with no advanced deposit necessary. Call the Front Desk to reserve your room today: 978-744-4080.

If you wish to book a weekend in October 2021, rooms will be available to the general public (via the website or by calling the Front Desk) every Tuesday at 10:00 AM following the weekend, as noted below:
