Ashburnham Reviews

24 reviews
All Categories
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.
If you are looking to find some fast quick groceries, not caring about price, then i guess this town is ok food wise. There are 3 main convenient stores and one very small grocery store. Most of the time when you would want to go buy a weeks worth or more in food, you would generally see people commuting to the next towns over where the market baskets and price choppers are.
