Opening this summer, The Inn at Hastings Park is a boutique inn located in Lexington, Massachusetts. Footsteps away from the Lexington Battle Green, a revered site where America’s fight for liberty began, The Inn’s two guest houses and barn are lovingly preserved historical landmarks. Let us extend revolutionary hospitality to you: gracious service, design that reflects a contemporary twist on the traditional, and seasonal New England cuisine prepared in our casually elegant restaurant, Artistry on the Green. We look forward to welcoming your arrival.
The most common question we have been asked in the last few weeks is “Why are those two buildings up in the air?” We are happy to report that after the installation of brand new foundations, both the barn and the Isaac Mulliken House are back on solid ground. Our construction crew has been working hard to get the buildings ready for winter weather. Windows and roofs are in place, making the buildings cozier for our crew, who will be spending the winter getting the interiors ready for our guests.
Speaking of interiors, we have been working with Lexington resident Robin Gannon of Robin Gannon Interiors and owner of Haven to develop a distinctive look for The Inn at Hastings Park that Robin describes as American Chic. We’ve been looking at wallpaper, sofas, lighting fixtures, bathroom fixtures and more for options that will enhance our guests’ stay. Like Goldilocks, Robin and I tested over twenty beds searching for one that is “Just right!”

“It was all ayes on plans to transform the Dana Home and an adjacent property into a “New England-style inn” to be known as the Inn at Hastings Park, which received approval last week from the Zoning Board of Appeals.
In a meeting last Thursday, July 26, Lexington’s ZBA approved a definitive site development plan (DSDUP), allowing certain new uses and site improvements and a special permit to allow an additional standing sign at the site.”
“By a vote of 138 to 44, Lexington’s annual Town Meeting last night approved Article 34, a citizen’s petition to rezone parcels at 2027 and 2013 Massachusetts Ave. to allow for commercial redevelopment of the Dana Home and the adjacent property as a hotel and restaurant concept known as the Inn at Hastings Park.
‘The work is only just begun,’ Perez Kennealy, a Town Meeting member from Precinct 6, said after pulling herself away from huggers, hand-shakers and other manner of well-wishers. ‘We’re really excited to get this vote of confidence from the community. We look forward to continuing to work with members of the community and being Lexington’s innkeepers.’
Addressing local media after the meeting adjourned for the night around 11:15 p.m., Perez Kennealy said opportunities for community input did not end with the May 9 vote. ‘In order for us to be successful, there needs to be an ongoing conversation with the community,’ she said.”
Tonight the Lexington Town Meeting approved the PSDUP and Memorandum of Understanding, meaning the project is moving forward and the Inn at Hastings Park is on its way to becoming a reality. Thank you for your support. We look forward to providing Lexington and its visitors a wonderful inn and restaurant experience. Thank you!
“Monday night was a step in the right direction for Trisha Perez Keneally, the Lexington resident looking to redevelop the Dana Home as an upscale hotel and restaurant concept known as The Inn at Hastings Park.
By at 3 to 1 vote with one board member not present for the vote, Kennealy’s concept earned a measure of support from the Planning Board, which recommended approval of a Preliminary Site Development and Use Plan, conditioned upon the execution of an acceptable Memorandum of Understanding with the Board of Selectmen.”
