Boston/Central Massachusetts Filter: My partner will be starting grad school in Amherst in the fall. I have a job in Boston that I'd like to keep. Where in central Mass should we look for an apartment?

We both know that we're in for a longish commute, and we're trying to find a place to live that maximizes convenience for both of us. I will take the commuter rail, so we need to live close to a commuter line; my partner will drive.
I've been browsing Craiglist listings in Worcester and Fitchburg, which are at the end of two commuter lines. What other locations/neighborhoods should we be looking in? (We'd prefer bucolic and charming, but really convenience is king and we won't be too picky.) Has anyone done this commute, either to Amherst or Boston?
