Starting in Groton, MA and simply take Route 119 northwest all the way up into New Hampshire and to the end point of Brattleboro, VT (just over the river/border).
Note: There's lots of great routes that bring you through the state lines between MA and NH. Tons of pretty roads
If you start in Groton, MA, You can follow RT 119 pretty much into Brattleboro VT. The road winds into Southern NH, through some pretty towns and farmland, and then into Brattleboro, which is just over the NH line. It takes less than 2 hrs. There's some pretty Falls at the Ashburnham State Forest, if you want to stretch your legs.
The road quality is good, and aside from some twists and turns, and road signs you have to follow; you should have no problems. It's a single lane road, and some sections are rated for 55 MPH. The road is in fine shape.
There's plenty of places to stop for gas, or a snack, except for one section in Southern NH, where you skirt the lower end of the Pisgah State Park. wich is a 13,300 acre forest with pleanty of hiking trails. Brattleboro has a ton of shops, and places to eat. It's got a kind of crunchy, hippie feel to it.
