Summer Themed Experiences at The Inn at Hastings Park

There are, indeed, too many special experiences and packages here at The Inn to do justice to in this blogpost. But we’ll spotlight a few offerings that have “summer getaway” written all over them!

Picnic at Walden Pond

Our Picnic at Walden Pond experience brings you to among the most iconic landscapes in American history: Walden Pond and the surrounding Walden Woods, a National Historic Landmark known the world over as Henry David Thoreau’s inspirational retreat outside Concord.

If you ask us, there’s no better way to enjoy the beauty, serenity, and literary significance of Walden Pond State Reservation than with a Signature Inn at Hastings Park Picnic Basket, stacked with gourmet goodness to enjoy pond-side!

Take Me Out to the Ballpark

Devotees of America’s Favorite Pastime and, really, any and all sports fans will treasure our Take Me Out to the Ballpark offer, anchored by an hourlong guided tour of one of Major League Baseball’s most famous venues: Fenway Park. Keep your eyes peeled for the ghosts of Babe Ruth and Ted Williams as you admire signature sights such as Pesky’s Pole and the Green Monster.

Meadow Mist Farm Experience

Feed the chickens, help harvest the bounty of the fields, and otherwise get to know firsthand how regenerative farming works at lovely Meadow Mist Farm here in Lexington.

Pine Meadows Golf Session

Whatever your skill level, you’ll fall in love with the beautiful fairways and greens—challenging yet accessible—of Lexington’s nine-hole golf course via our Pine Meadows Golf Session.

Private Bonfire Experience

Cozy up around your own private bonfire in an Adirondack chair, with a plush blanket to ward off any nighttime chill as well as some fireside essentials: a s’mores-making kit and an On the Rocks cocktail!

Craft Cocktail Class

Speaking of cocktails, you’ll learn the ins-and-outs of making them, including how to employ infusions and select garnishes, courtesy of our Craft Cocktail Class, taught by master Inn mixologist Dipendra Karki.

Cooking Classes

Culinary minded hotel that we are, we’ve always got fabulous culinary classes on offer at The Inn at Hastings Park, and this summer’s no exception. Mark your calendars, to take an example, for our August Supper Club at The Inn session: All About Grilling (August 21st). This interactive cooking class/dinner party includes a four-course dinner as well as welcome sparkling wine and canapés…
