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

Visited on a busy Saturday - 3 weddings plus at least two other functions but the service was good and the food was excellent. Good portions that were value for money. The menu was varied and there was plenty for the kids to choose.

Our waiter Charlie (or was it Charles) was very competent, friendly with a very personal touch. The receptionist who met us on check in on August 7th was very helpfull and friendly. We stayed in the country lodge and the... More

We stayed two nights at The Publick House to get away from Boston and see off the beaten path areas of Massachusetts. The Publick House has beautiful grounds and enjoyed the old historic part of the inn. We stayed in the motel units and our room was large. The carpet and bathroom needs to be updated but it was clean... More

My wife and I have stayed at the Publick House Country Cottages for a number of years. The cottages are part of a former chain motel located adjacent to the Publick House property that were acquired by this business. The rooms are absolutely huge with two double beds and plenty of space. Each room also has a private balcony, which... More
