A comfortable yet elegant inn overlooking the water yet just a short walk to vibrant downtown Brattleboro, Vermont. The Inn boasts a small pub on site with local craft beer, hard cider, and wine. With advance registration, you can enjoy a craft beer tasting on a Saturday night. Every morning we serve a full two-course gourmet breakfast. Relax in the hot tub, or play a game of pool by the fire. Every room has its own private bathroom, and several have fireplaces. We are on the water with accessible trails, and our formal gardens include one of the largest Japanese Maples in the United States. Of course we have free wifi; every room has a flat panel TV/DVD player; complimentary snacks and beverages; and so much more at Forty Putney Road!

For once I (Gary) came up with a wonderful idea: do something different for our wedding anniversary and I could not be happier I did. Forty Putney Road BnB is just lovely and seeing their Japenese Maple in full autumn red regalia was the cherry on the ice cream Sunday. John prepared us one of the best breakfasts I have ever had. Cindy was a great host as was their daughter Libby. We enjoyed the selection of DVD's and will plan on playing pool and using the hot tub next time we visit, and I am sure there will be a next time.
Gary, thank you so much for your review. The maple tree was truly spectacular this year. I am so glad you were here to enjoy it. We look forward to seeing you again before too long!

I chose this off the internet and was very pleased with the overall experience. John, Cindy and their daughter were all very welcoming and hospitable. We had the upstairs suite and enjoyed the roominess of it and especially having the fireplace. We were very impressed with the breakfast. It was absolutely delicious! The beds and sheets were dreamy!!!! We would definitely stay here again if we are ever back in Brattleboro.
Thank you so much for your review. It was a pleasure meeting you. We look forward to seeing you again before too long!

Next time stay at this great Vermont B&B. Our hosts Cindy and John were very motivated to make our visit enjoyable. They have a convenient location in the hip town of Brattleboro. The house and grounds were in excellent shape and contributed to a restful environment. A super 4 season getaway!

My husband and I had never stayed at a Bed & Breakfast before and we were lucky enough to receive a two-night stay at this wonderful B&B. We were there this past weekend and Rhonda, the Innkeeper, who’s absolutely the sweetest person you’ll ever meet – was very welcoming, knowledgeable and we soon learned that she’s a TERRIFIC cook too. Breakfast was incredibly tasty and so well planned. The Inn is absolutely beautiful, the room was clean, comfortable and very cozy - the pictures don’t do justice. We highly recommend staying at the Forty Putney Road B&B as we hope to do it again soon!

My husband and I travel once a year to a different bed and breakfast for a few days just to get away. I chose this one because I loved the photos and that it was within walking distance to shopping and restaurants. What an excellent choice!! We stayed in room #5 just outside the main house. It was clean and super cozy with a fireplace and jet tub. There was a basket with snacks and a few sodas and water in the fridge. The grounds are beautiful! Very well maintained and a gorgeous view. The main house has a pool table which we loved and played a few games to unwind and a dvd selection upstairs plus a microwave and popcorn if you choose to stay in and watch a movie which we did a few times. The innkeeper Rhonda was fabulous and so helpful! Asking us everyday if we needed reservations for dinner or anything for our room or just places for us to visit. And she cooks a wonderful breakfast! Every day was better than the next and we looked forward to it every morning! She made our trip that much more special! We enjoyed going into the town everyday and shopping and we even went to Kringle candle company about 25 minutes away which was fabulous as was the Grafton cheese factory! We had an incredible time and look forward to going back soon! Thank you Rhonda for a wonderful vacation!!

This is by far THE BEST Bed and Breakfast I have ever stayed at. The Innkeeper , Rhonda is an incredible person and cook. The different breakfasts we had every morning were scrumptious. The rooms are so very comfortable and warm. All the downtown shopping and restaurants within easy walking distance. If you want to spend time in Vermont you MUST stay here!! Richard B

The house is gorgeous and cozy with rich wood, French windows in the conservatory where you can look into the garden while you have breakfast, and soft colors. The house and my room and bathroom were all spotless. Rhonda takes pride in her breakfast and does the cooking herself. It really shows as it was all delicious with a nice variety, especially the egg soufflé, which was light and airy and beautiful. There is a wonderful garden behind the house and trails that are peaceful that lead down to a lake. It's especially beautiful at the end of the day when the sun streaks across the trees. The house is about a 20 minute walk to town. Rhonda was helpful and terrific! A great place to stay!

My wife and I were on a long and eventful vacation throughout New England, and our 2 night stop in Vermont was meant to be the time for pure and simple relaxation. Rhonda, our Innkeeper, ensured that happened. Let me just start with the food. You can tell from the preparation that goes into it, that Rhonda ACTUALLY cares about, and enjoys cooking for, her guests. Everything was delicious - BETTER than delicious! And of course, she had plenty of tea, coffee and juice to choose from to compliment her cooking. The room we stayed in was immaculate. The pictures didn't do it justice. So comfortable, so clean, so relaxing. Rhonda was also an invaluable source of information on all things local - places to go, things to do, where to eat. She referred my wife to a day spa that was everything my wife had hoped for. She also referred us to a local restaurant - TJ Buckleys - that may have been one of the better dining experiences we've EVER had. My wife and I strongly prefer staying at B&Bs as opposed to hotels, and Rhonda is a perfect example of why. She was attentive, but made sure we had our space. She was like our "vacation mom" - made sure we'd had plenty of good food to eat before we set out for the day. She was our own personal tour guide - ensuring we knew the best local places to go out to, and WHY they were the best. Rhonda, thank you so much for making our stay as enjoyable as you did. You truly care about your guests, and it shows in the way you manage your lovely Inn.
