We stopped here to use the toilets and were pleasantly surprised at all they had to offer. Nice area to sit near the crab apple trees, walk your dog (if you have one), learn about the area, and of course use the composting toilets. Thanks for a nice break from the road!

The folks inside were nice and very helpful. There were some yummy-looking goodies inside, some made by local folks. I guess I was most surprised to find this in Central Massachusetts.... More

If you are in Central Ma going any place, then you need to stop here. Its more than just a rest area, its a visitor center, its a country store, and it has more information about the arean than you shake a stick at. Woth the stop if you are on Rt 2 heading west.
