Ashburnham Reviews

25 reviews
All Categories
Ashburnham is a nice, small town with an excellent school system. It provides a great environment for growing up as a school-aged child and teenager. The only issues with Ashbunrham is that it is a bit far from bigger cities and there is not much to do within the town itself. Overall, it is an excellent place to live if you are willing to have a longer commute for work/recreational activities.
Review Ashburnham
Ashburnham use to have many camps surrounding the lakes which are almost all privately owned now. Being a mostly forest filled area, we don't have many stores except a few down town and a gas station/dunkin donuts on the edge of town. I wouldn't call it modern by any stretch. But the atmosphere is peaceful and beautiful to me. I know lovely people and lovely places.
Ashburnham is a small town that has a lot of character and charm. It's a very cute town, but it's also very limited with the things you can do.
