Bernardston Reviews

2 reviews
Bernardston is a small, quiet town with a lot of charm. There are a few restaurants, a corner store, a gas station, and a Dunkin Donuts, and its about a 15 minute drive to the city of Greenfield which has a little bit more for shops and nightlife. Bernardston is perfect for families and there's usually fun events happening during the summer and fall seasons that bring the community together.
Review Bernardston
Bernardston is lovely small town in a very safe, family-friendly area. The Bernardston Kiwanis is very dedicated to hosting monthly and annual fun community-oriented events for the town to attend.
