Petersham, the town that is quintessential New Enlgand

Petersham Massachusetts is a town that time has forgotten.  It retains its rural character of 200 years ago.  There are inns and churches, a library, a school and even a country store but no gas stations.  Yet there is plenty to do and see for nature lovers.

It is located at about  one o'clock on the northeast corner of the Quabbin Reservoir, the very heart of Massachusetts and New England.  If you're looking for a memorable trip to New England, consider a stay over in Petersham as part of your visit.  Especially in the fall, when the glorious fall colors display the town in fancy dress.

The Clamber Hill innkeepers, Mark & Deni Ellis, selected Petersham for it's abundant natural beauty and acres upon acres of conservation land which make it the ideal location for hiking, fishing, swimming, canoeing, birdwatching, bicycling and other outdoor sports.
