Overall a very nice farming community, it is a bit far out there and is closer to Nashua, NH. The town is pretty small but has great public schools and is very friendly to new people.

An absolute hidden gem. Hundreds of acres of protected land, great school system and bordering tax free NH for all of your shopping. 40 minutes to Boston 20 minutes to Manchester / Boston Airport. Known for its horse farms, Dunstable also has 2 working cow farms. Got milk? You might as well be 300 miles away.
I love Dunstable. I have lived here nearly all of my life on Massapoag Pond, and I wouldn't rather live anywhere else. It's a very peaceful town.
