If you are looking to travel further out, we can recommend the following stops:

Salem Cross Inn

The tradition of a hearty New England meal is alive and well at the Salem Cross Inn. Sit back, relax, and enjoy the ambiance of a restored 1705 farmhouse and the tranquility of over 600 acres of New England countryside while indulging in creatively prepared, fresh, seasonal fare. Step back in time… slow down… experience the way things should be.

Oakwood Farm Christmas Barn

Our barn is now opened everyday at 10am until 6pm on weekdays and 5pm on weekends… We are opened all holidays except Thanksgiving and Christmas. We carry all of the popular Christmas collectibles: Byers’ Choice Carolers, Snowbabies, Fontanini Nativity pieces, Jim Shore, Willow Tree, Webkinz and the beautiful Old World glass ornaments, plus 1000’s of unique ornaments. We’ve added a wonderful Irish shop, a seasonal Halloween department and Thanksgiving, too! Truly something for every taste.

Yankee Cricket Bed & Breakfast

On a stone ridge overlooking the Massachusetts countryside, Yankee Cricket Bed and Breakfast offers guests a quiet woodlands retreat from the tourist activities of neighboring Sturbridge and the hustle of the thrice-yearly Brimfield Antiques Fair. Innkeepers Sherry and Bill Simonic warmly welcome guests and introduce them to the amenities of a brand new home with the coziness of an authentic 18th century inn.
