If you are single, MUST be in this part of MA, and willing to rent; I would choose Southbridge. If you have a family moving with you or must own; choose Charlton, Sturbridge, or, Auburn.
Thanks, that seems like solid advice. I ended up passing on the Southbridge house after checking out more of the immediate surrounding area. The good news is that I won't be raising a family in any of these places, no kids for me. I have plenty of nieces and nephews to visit with. It will just be me and the girlfriend. I am looking at houses in all the places you mentioned.
