Charlemont Reviews

Though it is far from Greenfield, there is a nice little store that has fresh deli meats, hardware, school supplies, anything you possibly need. There is also a gas station and Charlemont is home to Berkshire East with excellent skiing/snowboarding trails and beautiful mountain biking trails and ziplining opportunities. I've lived here almost my whole life and everyone is super nice and super kid friendly. There is a little elementary school in the middle of town that you can take your kids to play on the playground. I love this little town.

What I like about Charlemont is that it is nice and quiet, and the nature around me is very beautiful. It is small but it does have a couple of stores and an area to ski in the winter. What I don't like about it since it is small there isn't a lot of entertainment. And it lacks in diversity.
