many amenities and creature comforts

3.6 on March 24, 2013

We enjoyed our stay at Forty Putney Road Bed & Breakfast in February 2013. This B&B has every amenity and convenience you can imagine. The property has a pub, hot tub, and pool table. Guests have access to snacks, beverages, and in-room mini fridge. Rhonda did a wonderful job with the breakfast and hospitality. The location is close to downtown and was quiet. I would highly recommend this property.


Loved it!

4.2 on January 12, 2011

We absolutely LOVED our stay at the Forty Putney B&B! The only thing that could've been better was if we had been able to stay another night. We both knew immediately that Forty Putney would become "our place". Can't wait to come back again and see what's new and different for every season of the year.


One of the best B&Bs around!

4.8 on December 02, 2010

A fantastic place in a beautiful location. We have stayed at a few B&Bs and Forty Putney Road is definitely the best so far. It is beautifically decorated and has a great little pub! One of our favorite things was just being able to sit by the fire and read or have a bottle of wine - a very nice touch. There are free snacks and beverages provided in the room which was great, as well as the free internet/printer, popcorn station (adorable!), DVDs/books for use, and free local and long distance calls. We have never had those things anywhere else and they really were nice touches. The breakfast was delicious and it was they catered to everyone’s likes and dislikes so it was like having a specialized breakfast every day. Amy and Tim have really mastered the B&B experience and there was not one thing missing from our stay. In fact we had more than we expected. We can only imagine how beautiful it is up there in the summer!


Lovely place, many nice touches

4.0 on November 22, 2010

Very pretty place, loved the availability of the billiards table and hot tub, computer, DVD's and books, snacks in the room, towels if you want to go to the beach, etc. It seems that everything a guest might need is thought of. We did not visit the on-site mini-pub but that looked very cool as well. It's a very short walk to Brattleboro's excellent variety of restaurants & shops. A great weekend getaway!


An outstanding stay at Forty Putney Road!

My husband and I had an amazing stay ay Forty Putney Road! The warm welcome from Amy and Tim when we arrived made us feel right at home. We loved all of the personal touches of the inn including the yummy basket of treats in our room. The beer tasting at the pub and Amy's delicious breakfasts were the highlight of the weekend! Amy and Tim really go out of their way to accomodate each guest and it does not go unnoticed. We really could not think of much more that would have made our stay more enjoyable aside from thinking how much our friends would also enjoy the inn. We are already trying to organize a weekend to return! Thanks again for a wonderful stay at Forty Putney Road! You made our weekend in Brattleboro a memorable one and we look forward to returning again soon.
