The Inn at Hastings Park, Lexington
LEXINGTON — Until The Inn at Hastings Park opened a stone’s throw from Lexington center in February, it was about as difficult to find luxury accommodations with a sophisticated onsite restaurant in town as it was to find a Redcoat near the Battle Green after April 19, 1776. The inn, 15 miles from Boston, is following in the footsteps of historic inns that date to the founding of our country, offering visitors a welcoming, family-owned establishment where guests can be pampered, learn the history of the area, and truly feel like they’ve gotten away.
The owners, the Kennealy family, meticulously restored the three historic buildings that make up the property: the 1888 Main House, the Isaac Mulliken House, and the Barn, which is rumored to have been a casket factory. From the Frette towels and robes to the locally crafted furniture, from the rain showers to the suites with fireplaces and alcoves that serve as sanctuaries, the 22-room inn is a welcome addition.
The inn welcomes couples looking for a romantic getaway, families with “pint-sized patriots” (who receive a special treat at check-in), and road-weary business travelers looking for a dose of home. As owner Trisha Kennealy puts it, “We provide guests with what we call revolutionary hospitality: attentive, personalized service to make your stay so enjoyable that you will want to come back again and again.”
Upcoming specials include a two-night cyclists package for those embarking on the B2B 2014 ride on June 14 and an American barbecue series. Rooms from $245, breakfast included.
