'WHAT A GLORIOUS MORNING FOR AMERICA'. These are the words that Samuel Adams spoke to John Hancock that conveyed the pride felt by the Minutemen before the 1st skirmish on the Battle Green of Lexington which signified the start of the American Revolution. Lexingtonians continue to cherish its place in history as the 'BIRTHPLACE OF AMERICAN LIBERTY'. We invite you to experience this pride and share our warmth and hospitality while visiting the many attractions in Lexington and nearby surrounding historical towns and downtown Boston.
Our four season bed and breakfast
offers four season charm with distinct decorated guest rooms
each with modern private tile baths. Guest share a private leisure room displaying photographs of historical scenes, cable TV, desk, and pub table with swivel chairs to challenge the inn
keeper at a game of chess or indulge in casual reading of historical Lexington. We offer our formal living and dining rooms year round for a more open and spacious environment. During the fall foilage season, guests may have an opportunity to observe the four deer that have matured during the past several years as they patronize our apple tree. During the late fall and winter, seating is offered in the Innkeeper's leisure room to enjoy the view and warmth of a fireview wood burning stove and the antique woodworking tools given to the Innkeeper by his grandfather. In the spring, while the mist is still in the air, enjoy the re-enactment activities that led to the start of the Revoluntionary War. In the summer, guests are encouraged to enjoy the sun while swimming in our heated in ground pool and viewing the one acre of wooded and landscaped yard which borders conservation land. During the summer evenings, guests can enjoy the camouflaged lights that pierce through the maple trees to reflect off the water while huddling around a glowing firepit at poolside sharing life's experiences. We offer our home as a place away from home in warmth with a touch of charm and welcome the exchange of culture, tradition and traveler's tales.
