Granville Massachusetts is located in the southern Berkshire Hills, on the Connecticut border. Hubbard Brook winds through the Granville State Forest, where there used to be a (legendary) swimming hole. Now, the signs warn against swimming, but it is still a beautiful area to visit.


There are about 20 camping sites at Granville State Forest, as well as miles of hiking trails and great places where you can (safely) dip a toe in the water on a hot summer day.

When in Granville, be sure to visit their adorable tiny center of town and the Granville Country Store for some Granville Cellar Aged Cheddar.  Make a stop by Maple Corner Farm for some real Massachusetts maple syrup, or West Granville Blueberries for blueberry picking in season.


Bliss Farm is a beautiful rustic wedding venue with overnight accommodations where you can have your reception in a converted barn.
