Colonel Crafts'
Spirit Lives On

The Publick House Historic Inn in Sturbridge, Massachusetts is nestled on acres of beautiful countryside in the heart of New England. This is where delicious homemade food and comfortable lodging come together as your home away from home. Through the years, this historical destination has grown into a landmark in Sturbridge, offering two charming restaurants that boast a dining experience from an era that has long passed. Whether you are seeking a romantic weekend for two, looking for a restaurant that offers fine dining or a convenient meeting place, planning a bridal shower, or want the perfect venue for your dream wedding weekend retreat, the Publick House welcomes you.

In 1791, Colonel Ebenezer Crafts planted the tall magnificent elm trees that shade the Publick House today. These amazing trees surround the Publick House and Sturbridge Common, keeping Colonel Crafts’ spirit alive.
