Boston Lot is a forested upland area.

The Boston Lot Reservoir, (elevation 638 feet) is ringed by ridges. Several small streams flow into the reservoir, and one stream flows from the dam spillway to the Connecticut River. The bedrock is primarily Lebanon Granite, a medium- to coarse-grained pink rock. Near the western boundary, the Lebanon Granite is a border gneiss. The soils are shallow, so outcrop0s of bedrock are common and easily observed along the shore of the reservoir. Glacial boulders are common, especially on the slopes east of the reservoir where large boulders are found. Steep ledges are prominent on the southeast slope of Burnt Mountain.
