A funky little inn run by two very friendly, helpful people

We had a comfortable stay at The One Cat. It is a colorful, funky place with a lot of personality. Pat and Conrad are very friendly, helpful and accommodating. We would return again.

Innkeeper Response
Hi. Thanks for your review. Please let us know if there is anything we can do to make the room you stayed in more comfortable for your next visit. All the best.

I stayed with Pat and Conrad (and of course, Dexter and Piper) for three nights. The room accommodation was wonderful and had everything I needed, including a selection of teas/coffees for my nightly cup of tea. Everything was wonderful, clean, and orderly and it was just like my home away from home. Delicious breakfasts, including delicious home made breads, English muffins, and bagels. I will definitely be returning to The One Cat in the future! What a wonderful three day stay. Close for walking to downtown Brattleboro, but far enough away as to really be like home! Thank you to Pat and Conrad for their hospitality and warm, friendly welcome and stay!

Innkeeper Response
Hi, and thank you so much for your very kind words! It was great to meet you, and we are happy you enjoyed your time with us. We look forward to seeing you again soon. Piper & Dexter purr their salutations.

We absolutely loved our stay! Pat and Conrad were so welcoming and gracious! The place Is cool and eclectic and fun! Also the breakfast was amazing! A real English breakfast made by a real Englishman! The kitties were so sweet and Pat was lovely to chat with. We highly recommend The One Cat! It is close to everywhere in Brattleboro- a perfect place to come back to after a few cocktails and a great meal!

Innkeeper Response
Aw! Thanks so much for the kind words. We enjoyed meeting you both, and hope you'll come again soon. All the best, Pat, Conrad, Dexter & Piper

Lovely Little Spot in a Weird Little Town

4.6 on August 04, 2017

The One Cat is located on a, shall we say, modest little residential street in Brattleboro. It's not terribly scenic, and my first glance led me to think I had chosen poorly. But immediately upon stepping inside, I knew I had found a hidden gem. The hosts are friendly and knowledgeable about their town. The rooms are charming, and the house is outfitted with everything you need for a quiet getaway -- games, DVDs, and a ton of books for the borrowing. The rooms have TVs that provide quick links to Hulu and Netflix for streaming shows. The kitties are wonderfully friendly as well. Breakfast was simply fantastic! Homemade breads, include homemade English muffins, are on the menu. None of the skimpy continental fare you get at some B&Bs. Here there is fruit and yogurt and cereal and juice and coffee and eggs and bacon and sausage and and and!! The house only has two guest bedrooms and, as in most old houses, the walls are thin, so you need to hope for neighbors who share your sleeping habits. Also, the bedrooms share a bathroom, but the owners have made the best of this situation with separate towel bars, soap dishes and water cups for each room, labeled as such, in the shared bathroom. All said, a lovely retreat in a funky, weird little town!

Innkeeper Response
Well, the saying 'round here is 'Keep Vermont Weird'. Sorry for the delay in responding: This review only showed up yesterday! We are so happy you enjoyed your stay. We hope you'll come again soon to enjoy our town. Spring is FINALLY HERE. All the best, Pat, Conrad, Dext and Piper

Don't Miss Out

5 on June 20, 2017

The proprietors, Pat and Conrad, are such kind people. When you arrive they make sure you are settled in, taking care to show you any specifics of your room you might need to know (location/existence of electric kettle, mini fridge, wifi password, remote control for ceiling fan.) They are willing to work with you on an unpleasantly early (my baggage, not theirs) breakfast and make it seem easy for them. Did you sleep well? How was your day? That is very physical work, take a yogurt and fruit with you. Do you need a cookie (scrumptious home made) for that? They really care about making your stay the best it can be. The house itself is adorable with two bedrooms sharing a hallway bath. The New England Room is the smaller of the two, but is well appointed so that two people can still feel a bit luxurious reclining on the sofa with a book. The Brighton Room, which is nearly half the house is light and bright having an incredibly cheerful feel. Even the shared bathroom is well spaced and very clean, everything is very clean! There is so much right with the One Cat it is hard to write a concise review. The toiletries are bought in bulk and eco friendly with out sacrificing effectiveness. The food is home made, to order and delicious. There is excellent variety so you truly get a well balanced meal with fresh fruit, eggs any style, scrumptious English muffins, challah French toast and a daily melange of sautéed vegetables. They have breakfast meats as well, I just didn't feel the need for any. Last but not least are Dexter and Piper the Cats. Piper is a bit shy and waits for you to approach her, be gentle and she will cotton on to you. Dexter, however, may greet you at the door when you arrive. He may or may not be waiting outside your bedroom door in the morning. It is likely he will expect cuddles.

Innkeeper Response
Thanks so much for the wonderful words. We really enjoyed your staying with us, and hope you had fun, along with the hard work at the school (and muggy weather). Hope you'll come back and stay again soon. Purrs from the kitties, too.

Overnight at One Cat B&B

We loved our room - The Brighton Room. Service was exceptional. Best value we've seen anywhere. Environment, books, convenience, needs being met. +++ Breakfasts were wonderful: Omlets were delicious. Thank you. We will come again!

Innkeeper Response

Great Experience

5 on March 12, 2017

Outstanding bed and breakfast. I give it the highest possible rating. My wife and I stayed here for a recent weekend getaway, and we had an absolutely wonderful time. The innkeepers, Pat and Conrad, went out of their way to make us feel welcome and at home. Their two cats are wonderful hosts as well! The property is totally charming and filled with interesting artwork, books, etc. We stayed in the Brighton Room, which was very spacious and extremely comfortable. The homemade breakfasts were so delicious and Pat and Conrad gave us wonderful tips and information about the best things to do while we were in town. They even gave us a lift to the train station when it was time to depart! My wife and I both loved our experience at the One Cat and would highly recommend it to other travelers.

Innkeeper Response
Thanks so much, guys! It was lovely to have you stay, and we're glad you enjoyed yourselves/Brattleboro. We'll contact the team about the number of stars...Hope to see you again soon! Pat, Conrad, Dext and Piper

A true gem

5 on January 05, 2017

A welcome and secluded Arcadia, comfortably nestled a stroll away from Downtown Brattleboro. Pat and Conrad were as welcoming as they were gracious and attentive hosts. Considerate of our needs and of the holiday, their impeccable service and warmth were an added bonus. The room - spacious, adorned, and inviting - was beyond any expectation. Having worked in hospitality, The One Cat is one of the best Bed & Breakfasts that I have stayed and deserves no small amount of praise. We are certain to return and cannot be thankful enough!

Innkeeper Response
Thank you so much for taking the time to review us, especially with such lovely comments! We loved having you stay, and we hope you'll come back soon. Thanks so much again for the kind words, and we hope you have a wonderful new year. Pat & Conrad

Awesome stay!

We had an incredible weekend at the One Cat. Everything was done with the professionalism one expects, complimented by a warm hospitality that struck a perfect balance between needed privacy and the feeling you get when you meet a new friend. Can't wait to go back to visit the hosts and their two cats!

Innkeeper Response

The Brighton Room

The Brighton Room is our homage to the city on the south coast of England where we met. Explore the books, arts and photographs in your room to get the know this vibrant seaside community. Roomy and bright, with a king-sized bed, it's a great space for couples. The shared bath* is a few steps down the hall.

  • Maximum Capacity: 2
  • Beds 1 King

Nightly Rate: $121 - $176

The New England Room

The New England Room is a bit of a love letter to this part of the US, with autumn colors and paintings and prints that include works by New England-born artists. A bit smaller than the Brighton Room, with a queen-sized bed and a cozy alcove for curling up with a good book, it's ideal for one or two people.

About the innkeepers

We met in Brighton, a city on the south coast of England, and have been together ever since. We married in 2012, and decided to move to the US - Pat is a New England girl and hadn't lived at this side of the pond for nearly 20 years. Vermont really was the only choice. We love our house, we love our neighborhood and our neighbors, and The One Cat allows us to share some of our wonderful town, state, and our home with others. Pat & Conrad (and Dexter and Piper)

Signature Dish

English Muffins
Conrad's English muffins are getting rave reviews from guests. Ample nooks and crannies for applying local jams and plenty of butter. Mmmmm. English muffins...
