Hawthorne House, built at the turn of the 20th Century was originally the home of a Hastings doctor and his family prior to being relocated in the late 1960's.

Proudly positioned on approximately 5 ha of established gardens and flat land, Hawthorne House has secured a reputation as a luxury Bed and Breakfast business, catering to tourists in the heart of Hawke's Bay. This beautiful 1906 Edwardian Villa comprises five well-appointed bedrooms all with en-suites, flowing to covered verandas and the gardens.

Separate formal dining and living areas still retain the homes original charm (the stained-glass work, shipped from England in 1904, is magnificent), adjacent is a spacious kitchen, ideal for running a busy B&B. The property also provides a spacious three-bedroom flat that is currently utilised as the owner's accommodation, with a kitchenette and separate dining and living room opening to a private covered verandah.

This well-established business is both nationally and internationally recognised - the online, five-star reviews are a testament to our clients' passion for providing a service second-to-none. Although currently being run as a B&B, opportunities exist to diversify. With options to rent the flat long term and enjoy Hawthorne House as a family home; or to develop the whole property as a venue for weddings, conferences, retreats or events.

Hawthorne House exudes charm and ambience from the moment you enter the driveway lined with 120 year old Plane trees. The grounds comprise of a gorgeous garden with mature trees, a home orchard, pond and six paddocks providing grazing. Various sheds also offer options to develop.
