The Publick House was the perfect venue for a wedding. We were married November 19, 2016 and everything went smoothly. The venue is beautiful and accommodating. The staff was great and never treated you like an inconvenience. My husband and I had a wonderful time and I was thankful for all the smiles and help from the staff. We also had our rehearsal dinner there and it was well worth it! It was another beautiful event and the bake shop cakes were amazing!

Publick House was the whole package, wedding planner, catering, hotel rooms. They were flawless. I didn't notice the staff around on the day, but the second I needed anything they were right there and ready to go. The entire day was coordinated and ran so incredibly flawlessly. We also had the cottage house as an after party and breakfast meeting place and that worked do well. There were two other weddings on the same day, and we were in the garden tent where they had a lunch earlier in the day...you wouldn't have known if I didn't see a listing of the days' events. Really can't thank them enough for an incredible wedding.

I can't say enough about The Publick House venue and staff, we had the best experience with them for our wedding on 9/30/2016. We had our wedding in the Garden Tent with around 125 guests and had planned to have our ceremony at the gazebo next to the tent, unfortunately it rained the day of our wedding BUT the staff was incredibly accommodating, allowing me to wait until the last minute (seriously 15 minutes before the ceremony was supposed to start) to move everything into the tent for our "Plan B" ceremony. The rain made no difference as the ceremony was just as beautiful inside their tent and we were still able to get some gorgeous pictures around their perfectly maintained grounds. We toured quite a few venues and The Publick House was by far and away the best value. The cost was very reasonable and their staff support was fantastic from our initial tour down to our day of banquet management. We chose to use their recommended vendors for our DJ (Champagne Toast), Florist (Michele Bernard), and Photographer (Heather Fuller), all of whom were amazing and easy to work with. This is the type of venue that can take care of everything for you, which was ideal for my husband and I as we did not have a lot of time to dedicate to planning our wedding. Outside of the wedding itself, we had a great rehearsal dinner in one of their indoor locations with delicious BBQ and the onsite overnight accommodations were perfect for our guests. The food overall was delicious from the cocktail hour apps to the entrees to the cake that they make in house. I HIGHLY recommend The Publick House to any bride/groom!

Chris and I could not be happier that we chose The Publick House as our wedding venue! The staff (Kris, Danielle, and Cathy) are amazing and they did an incredible job making sure our wedding went off without a hitch. The venue itself is the perfect combination of rustic and historical as well as gorgeous. The buildings and grounds are perfectly maintained and it is obvious how much work all the staff put in to make it such an ideal wedding setting. Thank you so much for being the perfect place for our big day... we cannot wait to come back and visit!

We had our wedding at the Garden Tent. It was absolutely beautiful. Their grounds are gorgeous: they obviously upkeep their outside areas, but the flowers and plants are wonderful. The bar and the food were outstanding--enjoy the food tasting before your wedding, and good luck picking just one or two favorites! The staff are amazing. Kris Jacobson was our Banquet Manager, and she's a saint. She knew every question we would have before we were done asking it, she anticipated our every want, and kept the evening flowing along wonderfully. Ashley was our Bridal Assistant, and she was some kind of angel. She brought us drinks and snacks during cocktail hour, she was there to help with my train whenever necessary--one of my bustles broke, and before someone could even exclaim, "oh no!" she had magically produced safety pins from nowhere, and saved my train from dragging! This place is amazing!

The Wedding of my dreams came true because of the INCREDIBLE, thoughtful, caring staff at the Publick House. Not only is everything on site (multiple hotel options, a Tavern, different ceremony and reception sites all with their own feel) but you get your own wedding planner for every step of the way, a banquet manager to run the show, a personal bridal assistant, AND all of the behind the scenes staff DID AN AMAZING JOB setting up and were so kind and helpful. Everyone from the wait staff and bartenders to the bakery shoppe were just so amazing and obviously love what they do!!! Our wedding planner even contacted and coordinated with all of our vendors for us and we didn't have to worry about a thing! Does anyone else give you your own wedding planner included in the price?? NOPE! This place is one of a kind!!

I was seriously the most nervous bride ever and they just made sure everything went perfectly, they got us all where we needed to be and communicated with the other staff (even with walkie talkies) to make sure everyone was where we were supposed to be at the right time. The new Chamberlain House (hotel) was BEAUTIFUL and had new amenities. The value of the meals and venue were great, the food was amazing. Everyone went above and beyond to make our day amazing and it really was!!! I can not say enough great things about the Publick House and their incredible, thoughtful staff. Wow.

I fell in love with The Publick House the minute we pulled into the parking lot. I wanted my wedding to have that old New England feel and The Publick House was exactly that. When we met with our wedding consultant and banquet manager, I felt so incredibly supported and comforted. I knew after the first meeting that we would be taken care of in all aspects of our wedding. Everyone told me that the venue was the biggest headache during the wedding planning process. Thankfully, we did not have that experience. Everyone was extremely accommodating and patient with us during a very busy and stressful time.

Cathy O'Brien, our wedding coordinator and Kris Jacobsen, our banquet manager were the two people who we specifically worked with throughout the wedding planning process. They are both incredible at what they do and were so awesome to work with. They tirelessly worked with us for months and made our wedding day even more beautiful and perfect than we could have ever imagined. Both of these people were huge blessings to my family and I throughout this wedding planning process. We are so thankful for them and for all those who helped make the wedding day so incredibly special at The Publick House. We had an incredible experience. My husband and I as well as all of our guests cannot stop talking about how beautiful the wedding was. We have the Publick House to thank! Everyone there is truly amazing at what they do. We had such a positive experience and have already been recommending this place to everyone!

I had my ceremony and reception at the Publick House on August 26, 2016. I am so glad I chose this amazing place as my venue! What first brought me to the Publick House was the location and the tent. I wanted to have a ceremony at a garden and the reception at a tent. All places I had looked for a tent wedding were outrageous. When I went to the Publick House, I loved the place-it has so much character! I thought it would be the perfect venue to have the ceremony, the reception, and have the guests stay at the hotel. They have it all! The price is so affordable and it's unbelievable the service you get for the price. The package comes with a cake and it includes a lot of extras like accommodation for the newly weds and receptions extras. I booked the venue about a year and a half ahead of time and my experience throughout the entire process was wonderful from the sales team to the banquet manager at the day of the wedding. The team was always responsive and well organized, they made the entire process easy. Lisa Lacoste coordinated all the details with me and made me feel at ease with her professionalism and experience. Kris Jacobson, the banquet manager, made everything happen the day of. She runs the show and she is extremely caring and detail-oriented. I got SO many compliments- that the grounds were so beautiful, the food was AMAZING (and so was the cake), and the staff was so friendly. Even when a lot of my family members who had traveled from a different country and didn't speak the language, they went above an beyond to communicate with them. I am so grateful for the perfect wedding at the Publick House and to their staff. I cannot say enough good things about this place. I cannot think of a better place to have tied the knot.

Our wedding day was absolutely beautiful! The staff and service could not have been anymore perfect. I've been apart of many weddings and have never had service this good. The staff was always right alongside the wedding partying getting them whatever they needed( food, drinks, handling any situations etc). The timeline was exactly how I wanted it, everything went smoothly and orderly. The food was delicious, many of our guests commented on that. They organized all of my decor exactly how I wanted it, also organized it all at the end of the day as well. We were very very impressed and happy with our entire wedding day!!
