Make A Holiday Rental House in Central Massachusetts, USA, Your Home Away From Home

The area known as Central Massachusetts is an upland and wooded part of the state of Massachusetts, you’ve guessed it, in the geographical centre. This includes the settlements of Worcester, Leominster and Fitchburg and the smaller villages and hamlets in between. As the names of the largest towns in the area would suggest, this is New England and a particularly beautiful part of the United States of America. Indeed, many thousands of visitors head to this part of the country every year and autumn (known in the US as fall) is always the most popular time as the foliage turns to even deeper and more impressive colours than we witness back home.

Things to Do on Holiday in Central Massachusetts, USA

As your self catering accommodation in Central Massachusetts will be surrounded by such beautiful countryside, you really should try your best to get out and explore it. If you are planning a long hike through the hills, bear in mind that the flora and fauna of America can be very different from the UK - so ensure you are prepared for any eventuality. You can also think about other activities in the area such as lake and river swimming, cycling and mountain biking, canoeing and kayaking, fly-fishing, golf and horse riding.

Places to Visit on Holiday in Central Massachusetts, USA

Whilst enjoying your holidays in Central Massachusetts, you will definitely have to visit the largest city in the area - Worcester - which has actually been twinned with the original city that goes by this name - in Worcestershire, England - since 1998. There are actually many tourist attractions to visit in Worcester and these include a plethora of museums ranging from a science museum (EcoTarium), to The Worcester Art Museum. As you are a stone’s throw away from the largest city in Massachusetts and one of the biggest in the whole of New England, Boston, you might want to set a couple of days of your holiday aside to enjoying the delights of this cosmopolitan metropolis.

The sitting room is large with plenty of seating. The beds are comfortable and the kitchen well equipped. There is a large, private woodland out the back, where we enjoyed early morning walks, and a firepit around which we spent a lovely evening. The surrounding area is stunning. We were here at the perfect time for autumn colour, so the drives and walks were quite breath-taking. We had never before seen such an incredible array of different coloured leaves! We drove west to North Adams, stopping at 'The Hairpin' for the most wonderful panoramic views. We also went walking in Mohawk state forest - very peaceful. Going east, we went to Shelburne Falls and had a lovely meal at the Blue Rock restaurant. Unfortunately, it is no longer possible to go down by the falls and potholes, which was disappointing, but there is a good viewing point. We also drove up to the Kringle Candle Co. which was full of lovely things to buy as gifts, though rather expensive. We thoroughly enjoyed our stay and would recommend this home.
