The Inn at Hastings Park in Lexington, Massachusetts is a quaint, relaxing and luxurious inn located near the Birthplace of American Liberty! Cozy up to your own fireplace, enjoy a farm to table meal at Artistry on the Green and take a step back into history.
Last week, this Florida girl braved the arctic temperatures and possibility of snow to return to New England to spend time with family and explore the area. I was actually craving colder weather and snow so it was the perfect time to visit. Prior to my visit, I stumbled upon a quaint little gem in the middle of Lexington, Massachusetts and knew that it was a place that I needed to explore.
Visiting the Inn at Hastings Park is like taking a walk through history. Historic Lexington and the surrounding area is full of American history and the inn captures a special piece of history. With modern and luxurious accommodations and flavorful seasonal cuisine sourced from local farms, the inn is a great place to visit any time of the year.
The inn actually features three separate buildings including the main house, the barn and the Isaac Mulliken House. Our premier king room was located in the Isaac Mulliken House located only a few steps away from the main house. The rooms were quiet and luxurious, designed using contemporary elements while preserving the unique history of the inn. The attention to detail with every aspect of the design of this inn adds a unique and welcoming personality.
When traveling, it can be difficult to find accommodations that provide you the comfort of home. At the Inn at Hastings Park, I wanted to take the entire room home with me. From the beautiful design to the warm gas fireplace, I never wanted to leave. Seriously, who knew that wallpaper was so beautiful?
Working at a desk overlooking a window with freshly fallen snow while cozying up to the warm fireplace was exactly how I pictured spending my time in New England.
After turndown service each night, a small card explaining the history of the inn and historic Lexington was placed on my pillow. I could picture the family that lived at the inn over 150 years ago and relive a piece of history while staying at the inn.
The inn is located in a convenient spot near downtown Lexington. You can walk to Lexington battleground and other historic landmarks. A few shops and restaurants are also only a short walk away.
Artistry on the Green
The Inn at Hastings Park is one of those places where you can park your car and stay for the weekend. With beautiful accommodations, unique experiences and incredible food, you won’t want to leave. When I first discovered the Inn at Hastings Park, I actually learned about the restaurant, Artistry on the Green, first. When you step into the dining room at Artistry on the Green, it feels as if you are stepping into the dinning room of a friend’s home.
The restaurant is full service and open to the public. We enjoyed breakfast, lunch, dinner and brunch at the Artistry on the Green. Every single meal was exceptional. Breakfast is included in your stay at the inn and I highly recommend making reservations for lunch and dinner too. Executive Chef Anthony Mazzotta and his team source the ingredients from local farms. The dining room is inviting, comfortable and quiet. Since the menu for each meal is unique, fresh and flavorful, you will never get bored with the options. In fact, you might leave the inn dreaming about the fresh pasta and meatballs or the delectable chocolate bombe.
Things to Do in Lexington, MA and surrounding area
While you will find plenty to see and do in Lexington, I highly recommend exploring the surrounding area. Do not miss Minute Man National Historical Park and Lexington Battle Green. Spend the day explore historic Concord, visit Walden Pond and the Orchard House. In addition to exploring some of the best national landmarks, make sure to please your palette with some of the best New England cuisine. A few of my favorite restaurants in Concord include Woods Hill Table, Bondir Concord and 80 Thoreau.
Woods Hill Table is a favorite for brunch because you can dine with friends while enjoying live music. Order a cup of hot chocolate or an Irish coffee and freshly bake muffins to start. Then indulge in the Brioche french toast or cuban press, two of my favorite entrees.
My visit to the Inn at Hastings Park was one that I will not forget. I can’t wait to return to the inn in the spring or summer to experience more of what the inn has to offer and visit many of the local farms featured on the menu at the Artistry on the Green. Escape the city and explore historic New England was enjoying luxury accommodations and delectable food.
