|Hiking, biking, bird watching, canoeing and fresh water
swimming are all activities that bring outdoor enthusiasts to
Clamber Hill Inn, in Petersham MA. Situated in the heart of
North Quabbin's pristine forests, the inn provides access to
thousands of acres of conservation land.
The inn is conveniently located to
fresh-water swimming at Queen Lake,
bird-watching at the Quabbin Reservoir,
hiking in Harvard Forest, (right out the back door)
canoing at Mt. Tully Lake , the Miller's River, or
one of the many other lakes in the area,
horseback riding at the New England Equestrian
Center of Athol or training with the world class
driving competitor, Larry Poulin on West Rd in Petersham.
If you are into hiking and outdoor scenery, there
are nine spectacular Trustees of Reservation properties
in the area, all of which allow leashed dogs on the hiking trails.
The Inn has trail maps available for all of them.
Bicycling on the back country roads of Central Massachusetts is
also a popular activity in the North Quabbin area.
Many cyclists enjoy riding all the way around
the Quabbin Reservoir. And now we have a B-2-B by Bike
arranged with Centennial House in Northfield MA.
And don't forget fishing in you list of outdoor activities.
Popular places to fish are the Quabbin Resevoir where you can
rent boats for the day or fly fishing on the Swift River.
There are several nice golf courses in the area.
The two closest both designed by Donald Ross,
are the Petersham Country Club, and Ellinwood.
And don't forget culture! The nearby 1794 Meeting House in
New Salem MA, presents an outstanding series of musical
concerts every summer and even closer to the inn, the local
Petersham Band does a series of six or seven concerts on Sunday
evening in June, July and August. And for the fall and winter
new Cultural Center at Eagle Hill (see our Curtains Up Theater
Package) located in neighboring Hardwick MA
brings in world class entertainment.
Also in the winter, cross-country skiing
or snowshoeing right out the back door of the Inn or
for downhill skiers, Mt. Wachusett with a 1000 ft vertical drop
is less than 30 minutes away. As innkeepers who ski, this is our
mountain, close enough to get to easily and challenging enough
to keep going all season long.
There is much to do and see in the North Quabbin area, hiking,
biking, music, fairs, festivals and unique museums. It is a great
place to visit and explore. For more ideas of what to do during
a Clamber Hill visit, check our blog.
