Not much screams fall quite like a pumpkin patch. As it happens, your guestroom or suite here at the Inn at Hastings Park in Lexington, MA puts a plethora of pumpkin patches (don’t you love alliteration?) at your fingertips: yet another reason to choose our historic boutique Relais & Châteaux hotel—a mere 15 miles outside of Boston—for your autumn getaway!
From date daytrips to family fun, steering your way to one or more pumpkin patches while enjoying our luxury hospitality is a guaranteed dose of fall fabulousness.
Pumpkin Patches Within Easy Reach of the Inn at Hastings Park
The lovely countryside in Lexington’s hinterland harbors a whole slew of farms and orchards, many of which offer pick-your-own pumpkins—and other seasonal delights—this time of year.
These include Shelburne Farm (106 W. Acton Rd, Stow, MA), which this year kicks off pumpkin season on September 9th. The iconic orange gourds are only part of the draw: Here you and the rest of the gang can also enjoy the Great Pumpkin Bounce House, hayrides, cider donuts, and other seasonally appropriate delights.
Another option is Connors Farm (30 Valley Rd, Danvers, MA), which similarly combines the pumpkin harvest with such attractions as the “Unexplained” Corn Maze, hayrides, the Putnamville Railroad, and some after-hours Halloween-y spookiness (including the Haunted Fields).
You’ll also find plenty of autumnal good times going down at Smolak Farms (315 S. Bradford St, North Andover, MA), where the U-pick pumpkins come complemented by differently themed weekend Fall Festivals featuring live music, hayrides, face paintings, crafts, and more.
Treat Yourself to a “Pumpkin-Spiced” Fall Getaway at the Inn at Hastings Park
Hitting up a local pumpkin patch or three is only one of many ways to embrace the sheer loveliness of the New England fall while calling our Relais & Châteaux hotel your home away from home in Greater Boston. For one thing, you’ll likely be able to combine the farm-going with some topnotch leaf-peeping (check out our recent blogpost focused on fall foliage in our neck of the woods right here).
And meanwhile you’ll have our historic Inn to savor amid the crisp sunshine and beautiful scenery of the season. Taste the fall bounty in our Town Meeting Bistro and Culinary Garden, and get some hands-on cookery experience (alongside fabulous company and conversation) via one of our Inn at Hastings Park culinary classes.
Book your elegant and well-appointed guestroom or suite here at the Inn at Hastings Park for an autumn idyll a stone’s throw from Boston, and look forward to some grade-A pumpkin-picking as part of the itinerary!
