James Cullion

James Cullion’s love of people, architecture and the historic city of Boston are the inspiration for The Gilded Lily.  “Jim,” who is also an architect, bought the dilapidated late-19th century brick townhouse in 1983.  He spent the next 25 years lovingly renovating and restoring this beautiful home.  The Gilded Lily welcomed its first guests in the spring of 2009.
