Step Back In Time

…And sip some complimentary New England coffee while gazing upon the exquisite decor in our parlor. Each piece of furniture has been hand-picked, with many having been lovingly refinished and brought back to their original glory, by your dedicated hosts. Among our collection of rail-themed art, we are proud to display the incredible mural work of noted painter, Averil Cronwell, decorating our two longest expanses of wall. Cozy nooks and sitting areas can be found throughout the Inn; perfect places to read a newspaper or a book with your complimentary homemade muffin and yogurt in the morning.


Each spacious King or Queen-sized room comes complete with a brand new mattress, 100% Egyptian cotton bedding, and its own private bath. Each bath has luxurious marble floors, and our largest room meets the ADA standards for accommodation accessibility. Every room at the Trainmaster’s Inn is unique and has its own style, and many rooms have a private sitting area that’s great for cozying up to read a newspaper with a morning cup of coffee.


Looking for the perfect place to call home during your next trip to the Brimfield Antique Shows, Old Sturbridge Village, The Big E, Wineries & Breweries,  Palmer Motorsport or anything else beautiful New England has to offer?

Look no further! Nestled inside a private yard on South Main Street, and just a short walk from the heart of Historic Downtown Palmer and the Steaming Tender Restaurant lies The Trainmaster’s Inn!

Unique and Private Rooms

The Trainmaster’s Inn features extraordinary 19th Century architectural design, complimented by individually curated decor, with railroad memorabilia displayed throughout the guest rooms and common areas. Our guest-rooms are each touched by the legacy of our local history, embellished in the art and furnishings of the bygone era. Each furnishing & accent piece has been carefully restored by your host, who wish for each room to evoke a sense of Historic Massachusetts, all the while keeping our guests pampered in modern comfort and luxury.

Close to Route 20 and the I-90 Turnpike
