Lunch today was a bit disappointing as my companion's potatoes and my squash were just lukewarm. Our meals came out amazingly fast for food to be less than hot. The rolls were dry- as if day old. Our turkey meat was good, as was service. This was the first day of all new furniture and rugs, so maybe they were...

We spent new years eve night here, at the Chamberlain house suite. AWSOME !!! the suite was very,clean,bright and cheery, with a lovely porch with a view. The king size bed was like sleeping on a cloud.The breakfast the next morning was scrumptious, compete with everything from A to Z, that you could possible want, and service was friendly and...

We stayed in the Country Motor Lodge/Inn. Last minute reservation from highway as we traveled for holidays. Price was great, accommodations were adequate. Clean and appropriately appointed and stocked. Just old and tired (I wouldn't walk on the carpet in bare feet) but not uncomfortable. The Publick House itself is much more pleasant. I can't speak for the rooms but...

I was disappointed to find that the rooms are in separate dwellings in a 2 story "motel-like" setting . The room was clean, but very dated. It was difficult to operate the heat/ac system, but it did work well after figuring it out. The cable was unplugged, but with the help via phone from the front desk it was resolved....

Our room was in the lodge behind the main building. We were disappointed that the room was not as nice as when we stayed in the suite in the main part of the inn. It was like staying in a cheap motel. There wasn't a coffee maker in the room, the decor was drab and dated, the bathroom was cold...

We mistakingly reserved a room at the Public House Historic Inn, thinking that we were going to be staying in Old Sturbridge itself. A blessed mistake. This inn was built in the 1700s, and is a delight. The meals there are excellent. They have a bakery, with all sorts of goodies. If you go to the bakery, look for their...

I stayed in their "new" rooms which is a small building right next to the Main Inn. The room was clean, had a nice bed, chair, ottoman and desk. That is the good. I stayed in Room 508 and right outside the window is a large air handling unit which cycled on an off quite often. Needless to say it...

This is a great old inn, complete with all the expected charm of an historic inn. Unfortunately, my room was NOT in the inn. Set on a hill above the main inn are several buildings that are on par with a run down motel. Zero charm, drafty, cheap looking... it was as clean as it could be. I didn't see...

We both ate dinner and stayed over night at Publick House. We are fans of the historic and this place did not disappoint! One feels very much like they could have arrived by horseback a century (or two!) ago and had a similar experience. I say this in the best of possible ways, btw. Our room was in the main...

I was upgraded from an outlying room to a room in the Inn. It was comfortable, clean, and handy to the bar, restaurant, and bake shop..... oh man, get one of those apple turnovers!
