Ashburnham, Massachusetts
Summer vacation in the hills of Central MA just west of Boston. Make memories 'someplace different'. We're closer to Boston than the Berkshires and with many fewer traffic jams than the Cape and Islands.

1830 Elijah Haven Homeplace is a very sweet, private and quintessential New England country getaway spot. Numerous guests say that it's unlike any other they've experienced. Unplug and indulge yourself in a much-needed quality-of-life break in this special place.

Between Boston and the Berkshires (but closer to Boston), Haven offers guests and travelers the opportunity to feel completely at home in a beautiful, clean, fully-updated, totally-turnkey (and very sweet) Gentleman's Farm on many peaceful acres near Cushing Academy, Wachusett Mountain and many other attractions in the hill & lake town of Ashburnham...

We spent part of each day outside just enjoying the property. Our 2 year old loved playing in all the open space, picking blueberries, and looking...

We spent a week at John and Scott's incredible Home Haven...woke with the sun to walk the gorgeous property each morning... Joined by turkeys, chipmunks and porcupine.. Up the hill to pick blueberries and across the brook. The farmhouse is splendid and inviting with lights to welcome you home each evening as you venture out. Sturbridge is less than hour...
