The Romantic: A native of Salem, Massachusetts, Nathaniel Hawthorne’s ancestry traces back to early Puritan settlers. Much of Hawthorne’s work was critical of Puritan New England society, evoking the aesthetics of the Romantic movement. Hawthorne was once a member of the Brook Farm commune and lived in several towns across the state of Massachusetts throughout his life, including Lennox, a Berkshires town just an hour’s drive from Wellspring. The room’s palette of blues and greens honors Hawthorne’s repudiation of Puritan values and offers a bright, cheerful refuge for your creative work.
The Hawthorne Room is available to single residents and couples and features a double bed, armchair, dresser, bedside table, desk, desk lamp, and desk chair.
