We stayed in the pet friendly motel section of the Publick House on the first night of a cross country trip as we have done on past journeys. Room was just OK although the room rate was significantly higher than we remember even though the motel section was mostly empty. First change noticed was that refrigerators had been removed from...

We stayed in the historic inn, built 1700-something. This was great, very atmospheric : uneven floor and walls, creaking antique furniture, etc. And the historic inn is well worth exploring - lots of quaint little rooms. You would need to be mobile though - lots of tight staircases and narrow corners (built 1700-something remember... Looking at some of the other... More

Before moving to our 55+community, we had always lived in Antique homes. I miss the warmth. When we go to Sturbridge,we love staying at the Inn. The rooms in the upper court yard are decorated beautifully, and we always enjoy our winetime on the private deck facing the woods. We always find that the grounds, and the Inn are beautifully...

We sacrifice some nice places because they do not want our kids, a four pound toy poodle and a10 pound terrier Jack Russell mix both rescued through Annapolis PAWs. Love us, love our children. Here we got it all. Quiet, clean, comfortable accommodations in easy distance from Old Sturbridge Village. See below. Coming from Cape Cod through the fall foliage... More

I stayed in Publick House Historic Inn during October of 2014 when I was going up to Maine to see New England's fall foliage. First and Foremost, this was very nice for its price $62 after taxes. Secondly, it was well located, right in historic Sturbridge but also 5-10 minutes from the meeting point of I-84 and I-90 (The Mass... More

Had we not stayed here we would have missed the beautiful grounds and great food in the "barn". However --- the lodge area above the property may well have been the WORST room I have ever stayed in. Screen door fell off as soon as we opened the slider for air, no coffee maker - if you want your coffee... More

The wedding ceremony was outside at a gazebo, it was nice.Then the reception was in an enclosed tent which was also nice except we were seated too close to... More

We were booked into the lodges section which was a basic motel. The room was clean and had two comfortable queen size beds. We had a good rate through expedia. Terrace of room faced I-84 the noise from the highway made it impossible to sit outside. There is an extra fee if you want a fridge or coffee maker. They... More

This Inn has been a destination for many, many years. I myself have stayed here for over 20 years yearly when attending the Brimfield Antique show and market. The Inn has many levels of dining and a bakery to die for!!! The Rooms in the Inn are of the period of the Inn. They also have a hotel on the... More
