The Publick House Historic Inn and Country Lodge, located in Sturbridge, Massachusetts, is your home away from home. Whether for an overnight business trip, special wedding night, or a family vacation, our professional staff at the Publick House looks forward to taking care of you during your stay.
The biggest compliment for us is the returning guests. It warms our hearts to hear a guest say they enjoyed our accommodations so much during our last visit that they’re returning, or that they heard about us from someone they know and just had to come to the Publick House to experience it for themselves. We’ve become a tradition passed on from generation to generation and we couldn’t be happier.
Because our accommodations span three facilities, there’s always enough room and hospitality to go around.
Come on in and experience the warmth, the friendliness, and the welcoming spirit known as the Publick House Historic Inn.
Our seasonal outdoor swimming pool, located adjacent to the Country Motor Lodge, is currently open for the summer 2023 season.
Pet-friendly rooms are available in the Country Motor Lodge, and may also be available in limited quantities in the Tillyer House, based on availability. A pet fee is applied to any guest room with pets, unless the guest can provide documentation that the pet is a service animal.
Free overnight parking is available only for Publick House lodging guests. Our parking lots are typically able to accommodate trucks, RVs and trailers, but guests may wish to contact us directly to inquire about availability for truck or trailer parking.
The Publick House has a strict NO SMOKING policy. Smoking in any guest room or indoor area (including tobacco, marijuana, and vaping or e-cigarettes) will result in a minimum charge of $250.00.
