Summer vacation in the hills of Central MA just west of Boston. Make memories 'someplace different'. We're closer to Boston than the Berkshires and with many fewer traffic jams than the Cape and Islands. 1830 Elijah Haven Homeplace is a very sweet, private and quintessential New England country getaway spot. Numerous guests say that it's unlike any other they've experienced. Unplug and indulge yourself in a much-needed quality-of-life break in this special place. Between Boston and the Berkshires (but closer to Boston), Haven offers guests and travelers the opportunity to feel completely at home in a beautiful, clean, fully-updated, totally-turnkey (and very sweet) Gentleman's Farm on many peaceful acres near Cushing Academy, Wachusett Mountain and many other attractions in the hill & l...Summer vacation in the hills of Central MA just west of Boston. Make memories 'someplace different'. We're closer to Boston than the Berkshires and with many fewer traffic jams than the Cape and Islands. 1830 Elijah Haven Homeplace is a very sweet, private and quintessential New England country getaway spot. Numerous guests say that it's unlike any other they've experienced. Unplug and indulge yourself in a much-needed quality-of-life break in this special place. Between Boston and the Berkshires (but closer to Boston), Haven offers guests and travelers the opportunity to feel completely at home in a beautiful, clean, fully-updated, totally-turnkey (and very sweet) Gentleman's Farm on many peaceful acres near Cushing Academy, Wachusett Mountain and many other attractions in the hill & lake town of Ashburnham just beyond the suburbs. Enjoy the Herb Cutting Garden just outside the kitchen door. Immerse yourself in the nature and spirit of rolling lawns, gardens, fields, ancient stone walls, forests, walking trails, hills and many lakes. In-season, numerous Adirondack Chairs (10 at last count) on the lawns and in the fields help you breathe it all in — retreat, relax and decompress. Very private. Convenient, Fully-appointed. Haven is situated on a secluded hillock – perfect for people who value a bit of seclusion, scenic surroundings and making wonderful memories. (Haven Homeplace is our home – which we vacate whenever guests are in residence. When you're a Guest at Haven, it is yours alone.) The property is has easy highway access from Boston and New York. Some airports (Worcester and Manchester) are less than an hour away. Includes in-person 'Meet & Greet Orientation', Weekly Cleanings, Central AC, Xfinity BlastPlus High Speed Wi-Fi, Groundskeeping and lots more. Wide pine floors, a center chimney in the living room and lots of windows & skylights make this a light, bright and cheerful place to call your home. A renovated barn, carriage house and artist studio are also on the property, as well as over 6 acres of lawns...and gardens that begin blooming in mid-May and don't stop until Fall Foliage season. Please read the comments and compliments from other guests, then plan your stay and experience this special place for yourself. We'll help in any way we're able.More

We stayed at the Elijah Haven Homeplace for 1 week and wish we never had to leave. Between the historic house and the beautiful grounds it was the perfect spot for our family vacation. We spent part of each day outside just enjoying the property....More
