Former Elder Care Facility Transformed into Boutique Inn

LEXINGTON, Mass.—The Inn at Hastings Park, a collection of three antique buildings that have been thoughtfully restored over the past two years, is now open. The Kennealy family, who resides nearby in Lexington, Mass., owns the luxury property, and this opening represents the realization of a long-held dream.

“My husband and I always have embraced a lifestyle that prioritizes warm hospitality, gathering family and friends, and sharing great food,” Trisha Pérez Kennealy said. “With the opening of The Inn at Hastings Park, we look forward to sharing our style of hospitality with guests who come to us for a variety of purposes: tourists experiencing New England; corporate travelers whose work takes them to Boston, Cambridge, and the Metro West area; and people from within our community who are looking to experience something special.”

Interior designer and Lexington resident Robin Gannon of Robin Gannon Interiors created a design scheme that stays true to the building’s architectural history but reinterprets the space with modern sensibility. Each of the 22 guestrooms is unique in its layout and design. Gannon used a vibrant color palette, teaming such shades as lavender and chocolate, citron and cobalt, and peach and puddy. The three guestrooms in the barn reflect Lexington’s patriotic history and revolutionary spirit with a contemporary play on Americana red, white, and blue.


Gannon and Pérez Kennealy prioritized incorporating New England craftsmen and artisans into the design for The Inn. Guests will appreciate Sister Parish Designs and Peter Fasano wallpapers, Dunes and Duchess candelabras and sconces, and O and G Studios wood furniture. All of the beds are dressed with throw blankets woven on an old fashioned loom in Maine. Gannon hopes that the overall effect of the design scheme is the creation of a space that reflects great character while celebrating the luxuries of home.
