Publick House’s New Website

The Publick House just unveiled a new website! This was certainly a labor of love because much like moving to a new house, you never really grasp how much stuff you have until you need to pack it up!  Designing a website is very much a work of art.  Staving off clutter, while still making sure all the important information remains and putting beautiful photos in the right spots: all these things are all so important!

Publick House’s new home page!

You can see the new home page above.  The Publick House’s signature blue is evident throughout and what great photos!  Technology has been changing so rapidly and with that, comes a change in how people use websites. Programs like online reservations systems and software like Open Table all have their place.

Planning your wedding? Check out the wedding page!

Those of you newly-engaged need to go right to the Wedding Page!  All the information is there for your wedding, including packages, beautiful photos to give you ideas and the way to reach the wedding specialists at the Publick House.

Lodging getaways, dining specials, corporate meeting packages, group tour information and even a new Bake Shoppe page are all included in this beautiful website.  Thanks to Exsel Advertising in Sturbridge who designed the website.  Make sure to visit!

Hard at Work

It is so lovely to feel the weather changing to Spring (even though we really didn’t have a winter this year).  Flowers are coming up all over the place and people are working diligently sprucing up their yards.  Well, we are sprucing up at the Publick House also!  Our outdoor spaces have been going through a transformation of sorts: an underground sprinkler system, new grass on the hillside next to the Bake Shoppe (due to grow in within thirty days), new trees around the wedding gazebo and more.

The parking lot has seen some changes over the past couple of years.  To make things easier and safer for our guests, we have added beautiful brick walkways on each island and new shrubs along the islands.

Lovely new shrubs along the islands in the parking lot.

Let us know what you think about our walkways!

We have more planned for our outside spaces, both by the Bake Shoppe and out front.  We will keep you posted.  Hope to see you here soon!

Those Sentimental Sticky Buns

If you aren’t that familiar with the Publick House, then the title up there may be a little confusing, maybe even suggestive…but what I have noticed, is that when I tell people that I have anything at all to do with the Publick House, they begin to tell me stories about how they visited the Bake Shoppe for a cupcake when they were staying at the Publick House during summer vacations past or when they were kids and on their way to Grandma’s house, mom and dad always stopped in to the Bake Shoppe to get eclairs and cookies and yes, sticky buns to bring for dessert!

Publick House Bake Shoppe

Those memories are amazing to hear and it is wonderful that people of all ages have positive associations with our Bake Shoppe.  The cases of delectable delights are always full: chocolate-dipped macaroons, M&M cookies, whoopie pies, artistically-frosted cakes, and pies to die for!  The orders for treats at Thanksgiving and Christmas come in fast and furious–they are hard to keep up with!

She's an artist!

The Bake Shoppe has had a makeover in the recent past.  The cases have been spruced up, the decor changed, new cases added with Food on the Go, and tables re-arranged.  The sign outside is still familiar to people, that’s for sure!  Next time you’re in the area make sure to stop in to get some treats and tell the person behind the counter your memorable Bake Shoppe story!

And they are. The famous sticky buns!

Bake Shoppe hours are: 7am to 6pm Sunday through Thursday and  7am to 8pm Friday and Saturday. We are taking orders now for Easter!  April 4 is the deadline.  Here is the form.
