About This Listing
The 'guest' room has two large sunny windows with a beautiful view of fields and mountains. It hosts a very comfortable queen size bed with crisp cotton sheets in the summer and soft flannel sheets and a cozy comforter in the winter. The bedroom is on the second floor which offers privacy (I live on the first floor) and the full bathroom is on the first floor. You can curl up in the living room, the sun room or on the front porch in rocking chairs. This is the home of an artist and a cat named Trouble.
I will provide coffee/tea and blueberry muffins in the morning. A more substantial breakfast is available at the General Store ((website hidden)),the Putney Diner, or Katie’s, a six minute walk into the village.
You will be very near (three tenth of a mile) Next Stage ((website hidden)), Sandglass Theatre ((website hidden)), and The Gleanery ((website hidden)). Putney hosts The Yellow Barn ((website hidden)) in the summer and is about a half an hour from the Marlboro Music Festival ((website hidden)). Brattleboro is about a fifteen minute drive away.

There are miles of cross country ski trails at the Putney School and easy to moderate hikes nearby, and more challenging hikes within a hour’s drive. There's a professional bike shop in town with information about local rides. Downhill skiing is about forty-five minutes away.
Come enjoy this wonderful corner of Vermont.
Our stay with Nancy could not have been any more delightful. Her home is beautiful, Nancy was welcoming and we had a lovely evening our first night with her dining out in a restaurant a few towns away. The room was clean, book-filled with wonderful light and an amazing view each morning. It was separate from her room, so my friend and I had privacy to catch up with each other. Each morning Nancy had coffee and delicious berry muffins waiting for us. I look forward to seeing Nancy again upon my arrival in the area, and I highly recommend her home to anyone who is looking for a place to stay while exploring this part of the world.
I trust that all the pieces will fall into place for your move to Vermont. YOu've chosen a wonderful school and that wonderful home is just waiting for you to find each other. Please be in touch when arrive in August and if there anything I can do for you from this end, please just ask. I really meant that!
Nancy's house was really fantastic. It was warm, inviting, safe, and private. The house is very clean and it was a wonderfully refreshing stay. The views around the area are stunning and invite daydreaming an deep relaxation.
Nancy was a perfect host and it was a real pleasure to stay with her and Trouble :)
Staying with an artist and a gardener -- I was in heaven.
Nancy is easy going and fun, and full of suggestions of places to explore if you ask. Her home is welcoming and the room is private, spacious and comfy. A perfect experience!
Nancy was a gracious and wonderful host! Her muffins are delicious and her conversation engaging and warm. Trouble, the cat, was very friendly and likes to be pet. The house is close to town and the room was light and cozy!
I thoroughly enjoyed staying in Nancy's lovely home. I was in town for a weaving workshop and my colleagues stayed in motels in Brattleboro. I lucked out! Four doors down from the weaving school. Everything was as described.
