We have been a fan of Publick House for a long time and thought it would be the perfect place for us for our wedding reception. We couldn't have been more right - Crafts Hall fit our tastes exactly, and they were more than willing to accommodate us even though we had a very small guest list. They took care of set up and tear down, and they didn't have any problem incorporating the little touches we wanted, like letting us use the cake cutter and server that the groom's family gave us as a pre-wedding present. The food was fantastic - many of our guests made a point to tell us so, and working with them was a pleasure.

Everyone at the Publick House made our wedding day run smoothly.
My family is from MA and my husband's family is from CT so having an on-site wedding at the Publick House Historic Inn was a match made in heaven. Our wedding was outdoors at the Garden Gazebo on the beautifully manicured grounds and our reception was under their beautiful tent. The convenience of allowing our guests to stay the night at the inn was a big plus for us! This cut down on transportation costs for ourselves and guests and the rooms were reasonably priced. The many amenities included in our package were incredible. Publick House created a gorgeous three tiered cake for our reception right at their on-site bakery and all of their tables, chairs and linens were included as well. The food was fabulous! We had the Orchard Chicken, Pan-Seared Salmon and the Wild Mushroom Raviolis as our dinner entrees and our guests were blown away by how tasty it all was!

Our wedding coordinator Kris was incredible. We loved her no-nonsense attitude and her humor. She was warm, welcoming and made our night flow seamlessly. We had a 48 star flag hung behind our sweetheart table under the tent (we were married the night before 4th of July) and it ended up getting drenched in a downpour late in the evening of our reception. She offered to dry it out for us at her own home and re-fold it for us to pick up a few days later. This was touching and we really appreciated the gesture.

All of the staff were quick to respond to emails that I sent in for questions and the rehearsal dinner on site was incredible too. Everyone in our family said that our wedding was amazing and that they couldn't believe how lovely it all was.

Thank you Publick House - we will be visiting again soon and will keep you in mind to host any future events for us!!

Best Regards,

Beth & Christopher Lippmann

The Publick House did everything possible to make my son's wedding perfect. We never had to worry. The food was excellent. Kristin was there to make sure everything ran smoothly - and it did. She actually visited every table to make sure our guests had everything they needed (or wanted) and directed the staff accordingly. The entire staff was very professional. Our guests say it was the best wedding they've ever attended.
The wedding was held at the hill side gazebo and the reception was in Page Hall. Cocktails and appetizers were served in the barn and patio while pictures were taken.
Our guests stayed in the country lodge and the bride and groom and their parents had rooms in the inn. If you love history the inn is the place to stay.

I had the pleasure of having my wedding at the Publick House last week. I would not have changed it for the world. The venue is stunning, the food is delicious, and the staff is beyond easy to work with. My expectations were met, and than some! We had a Sunday brunch, and it went off flawlessly. I can't get over how easy my day was. My guests have not stopped telling me how beautiful the Publick House was or how great the food was. I would recommend them 100 times over.

I can't say enough about the publick house! They were fantastic in every way. From the beginning when I first inquired to when I said good bye after the reception. Lisa, Cathy, Kristen, & Alison were amazing. I can't thank them enough for taking such good care of me, my husband, our families and friends. Definitely worth every penny and more!

How do I even start writing this. We held our wedding and rehearsal here and EVERYTHING WAS BEYOND AMAZING!! BEYOND. The decor, the food, the staff. They truly went above and beyond. Kristin was onsite the day of the wedding and I can truly say she went above and beyond. She even came by to say hi at the rehearsal even though she wasn't working. I had staff holding my dress and an umbrella out in the snow. I had staff watching my 3 year old. All things to just help us out. I will say that I would highly recommend this venue to anyone. It was a wedding people will never forget. it was a 5 star wedding on a budget.

I cannot say enough good things about the Publick House. Each member of staff my husband and I worked with were so wonderful! Very responsive, knowledgeable and willing to help us with any questions or issues we had. And trust me, I ALWAYS had questions. They never tried to upsell us - they knew our budget and respected it but made sure we got everything we could out of it! I felt like through the wedding planning process, I developed new friends throughout my communications with everyone! Cathy, Lisa, Laura and Shauna were wonderful through the planning process! Then wedding day, the manager, Kris was fantastic. She and my bridal assistant, Allie were such a delight. Always with us for whatever we needed each step of the way. We were well aware that they do over 150 weddings a year but we TRULY felt like we were THE ONLY one - that is not an easy task. We held our wedding just after Christmas and I cannot even describe how beautiful the decor was. It was breathtaking. Our guests were absolutely amazed. It was also a WONDERFUL coincidence that the color scheme they chose this year matched our wedding colors. It couldn't have been more perfect. It rained so hard on our wedding day and initially I was disappointed knowing what the forecast was in store as we wanted some outdoor shots BUT fortunately the Publick House is so unique with numerous locations to take pictures - we got some amazing photos. The food was unreal! It was unreal at our tasting and the same the day of the wedding. We also asked for a funfetti cake. Probably the best cake I have ever had. At the end of the night we rented the cottage for our after party. Talk about a perfect spot to have your guests come to unwind and keep the party going. It had EVERYTHING you need - They just updated the decor and furniture too. We were so lucky. We received so much great feedback from our guests on how amazing our wedding was and most of that is because of everything that happened at Publick House.
