“When we focus on our gratitude, the tide of disappointment goes out
and the tide of love rushes in.” —Kristin Armstrong
If you are not on our newsletter distribution, we wanted to share the content of our final newsletter with everyone,
It is with mixed emotions that we are sending this final newsletter. The Hawthorn Inn has been sold. The buyer will be turning the inn back into a private residence. This was not our desire. In fact, this buyer approached us earlier and we declined any interest as we wanted it to remain a bed and breakfast.
The Inn was under contract with another buyer who would run it as a B&B, but that contract fell apart. The final buyer approached us again with an offer meeting our goal. At the same time, our broker reached out to four other parties that had shown interest for use as an inn, but none of them were willing to move forward. For this reason, family reasons, and the business risk presented by COVID and its continuing developing variants, we decided it was in our best interest to proceed with this buyer.
Kristin Armstrong’s quote is the best way to open this newsletter. The overpowering tide of disappointment that the Hawthorn Inn will no longer exist as a bed and breakfast is only subsided by fond memories that have been created here. We are grateful for every story shared, guest smile and hug, wedding, anniversary, and birthday celebrated here.
We appreciate the support and friendship of our guests. For those of you receiving this newsletter yet have not stayed with us, thanks for considering us!
There are lots of great places to stay in Camden and lots of great innkeepers. As you explore your next “go-to” place in Camden, consider looking at Camden Premier Inns. It is a collection of innkeepers who share a similar high standard of service.
As we say “Hello” to our new adventure, we are so lucky to have something so special making it hard to say goodbye—instead, we shall say, “Farewell—until we meet again.”
Wishing you a very special holiday season and the happiest New Year!
Your Former Innkeepers,
Lisa & Ted Weiss
We were fortunate enough to have some of repeat guests stay during our last few weekends at the inn. Unfortunately, I had not thought of taking pictures of the first weekend of guests. Luckily, Kathy had suggested it on the second weekend! We are truly blessed and thankful to have had such wonderful guests over the years.
