Help us Name the New Puppy
Our new German Shepherd puppy was born December 23rd at MondouCu kennels. He is the son of Aine and Jaarko. We eagerly expect his arrival to the Inn on March 4th. We need your creative help to find an appropriate name for Sky's new canine play-mate. The new pup is observed to be "quiet, confident and an active problem solver". Mix this in with the season, Concord, the Transcendentalists, spiritual values, silliness, dogginess and  inspiration. Email  your name suggestions to:

Over the past 35 years we have had many reviews written about the Inn: professional travel writers (see below), posted on Trip Advisor , and candid observations inscribed in comment books that we have placed in the guest rooms. Sometimes it is a delightful experience to see through someone else's perceptions. To enjoy the Hawthorne Inn through the eyes of a  13 year old guest, please read her short Fairy-Tale Review.
 Hawthorne Inn on World-wide List of "Unforgetable Trips"

Los AngelesTimes  Travel writer Susan Spano (also the New York Times' Frugal Traveler) looked back over 10-plus years of writing travel stories for the L.A. Times and chose her top 50 trips, from Sweden's Arctic Circle to the canyon lands of Utah. Her stay at the Hawthorne Inn and Concord made the list. "Catching fall colors where America began"

2011 marks our 35th Anniversary of welcoming guests to the Hawthorne Inn.
We thank you, one and all, for adding your stories to our lives. Visitors from 113 countries have given us many blessings. We hope that we have provided in return fond memories, good conversation, a brief respite and a refuge that allows the calming voice of eternity to issue forth from within you.

May Peace and Love enfold you all.
