Our historic buildings are over 130 years old and, have porches with rocking chairs to enjoy!

Hawthorne Apartments is the "Authentic Old Florida" and will make you feel like you have stepped back in time.

 

Our ten apartments have large floor plans and many have high ceilings embracing elements of the original architectural details from the late 1890's. Several apartments have their own private porches. Hawthorne Apartments has both one and two bedroom units, available on a yearly, or occasionally, on a seasonal basis. Laundry facilities are available onsite for your convenience. The apartments face a lovely backyard with pecan, palm, oak, orange and fig trees right outside your windows. You can walk to stores and bike the Gainesville Hawthorne State Trail. The library is across the street and many people enjoy this feature as they can be just steps away from books, videos, special library programs, internet access, and a quiet reading space.

 

Our central location in downtown Hawthorne provides the opportunity to walk to the nearby stores and businesses like the Hawthorne Post Office,

the Alachua County Library, Ace Hardware, and the Hawthorne Historical Museum. We also have Hitchcock's Groceries, CVS Pharmacy, Sunstate Credit Union, local restaurants, our city owned gym with yoga classes and many small shops. Churches of all denominations are located on nearby streets and a doctor and dentist practice in our small town. Hawthorne is also home to the Little Orange Creek Nature Park which has hiking and nature trails as well as events for nature lovers.

 

There is also a train, which runs through Hawthorne, which gives you that old-fashioned small town feeling. Hawthorne is just 15 minutes to Gainesville and 30 minutes to Ocala, which makes for an easy commute to either city. If you like small town living then our apartments are ideal.
