New England colonial-style inn surrounded by trees serves homemade food to guests

Hotel at a Glance: The Publick House Historic Inn

A walk up to the front of The Publick House Historic Inn transports guests back in time to the 18th century. This charming space was built in 1771 and guests can expect to see white clapboard, dark shutters, and a lantern hanging over the front door. The inn is surrounded by other lodgings, all of which are marked as Historic Hotels of America (part of the National Trust for Historic Preservation), but is equipped with contemporary amenities while still allowing guests to feel like they are in old New England.

  • In-room decor: Guests find the best of both worlds with TVs and hair dryers alongside colonial-style wallpaper and warm-toned, wooden furniture.
  • Holiday celebrations: For those booking trips surrounding Valentine’s Day, Easter, or New Year’s Day (to name a few), the inn provides extra specialties, such as house-made chocolates and buffets, along with other festivities are available to guests.
  • New England-style dining: Serving up “Yankee hospitality,” Ebenezers Tavern and Historic Tap Room the Publick House’s very own taproom and tavern crafts specialty drinks and chefs make traditional meals, such as a pan-roasted salmon course.
  • Gathering Spaces: Guests looking to run mid-sized corporate or social events may rent out The Ballroom, a room that originally hosted gatherings for young ladies and men back when Publick House first opened in 1771.

Sturbridge, Massachusetts: Living Colonial Museums near Six Flags New England

Central Massachusetts is somewhat hidden away between The Berkshires and the coast, but there’s a lot to do here no matter what the season. Old Sturbridge Village is one of America’s oldest and largest living museums, a place where historians dress in period costume and visitors can practice arts and crafts. The village looks to re-create what New England life was like between 1790 and 1830, and it features a working farm, three water-powered mills, and nearly 60 antique buildings.

The attractions are more modern in nearby Springfield. It’s home to Six Flags New England, where you can ride roller coasters until your brain turns to cotton candy. On particularly warm days, you can head to amusement park’s attached water park—known as Hurricane Harbor—to float down lazy rivers or catch a wave in the 500,000-gallon Commotion Ocean.
