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!

Picture Craze

We have joined the Pinterest craze!

Have you heard of it? It is a very cool way to share anything and everything you may like in a visually exciting environment.  There are boards for Fashion, Art, History, Nature, Decorating, Travel, and the list goes on and on.

Pinterest Logo

The logo above will look very familiar very soon–so many places are collecting photos and “pinning” them to their online boards. In an article in Hispanic Business magazine, Pinterest founder Ben Silbermann says about Pinterest, “A ‘pin’ is a digital representation of an object that means something to you,” he said. “When you open the site, you should see things that you love — and be able to connect to the people who found them.”

That connection is what brought the Publick House to the Pinterest world.  We wanted to connect with all our customers, clients and guests and as the old saying goes, “A picture is worth a thousand words,” we hope you find the photos we share with you meaningful and that you will repin some of our photos that are meaningful to you.

We have started with a wedding board and will continue with a look at the great things of all types in the Sturbridge area and of course, a look at the history of the Publick House, through postcards, newspaper articles and old photos.

Easter at the Publick House

Even though there is snow on the ground, we at the Publick House Historic Inn in Sturbridge, Massachusetts, still turn our faces toward Spring.  And what better way to start Spring than with our Easter buffet.  Although we are pleased that the event gets raves every year, it’s not only about the food…it’s about the regulars that come back year after year.  It’s about the comaraderie of the staff who work on the holiday, making sure the number one priority is the comfort and satisfaction of every guest at our table.  It’s even about the little chicks who make an appearence in our hotel during that time: the oohs and aahs from adults and children as they see the little feathery creatures under the safe, warm lights.
