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.
Nancy was an absolutely lovely host. We were delighted to stay in her very comfortable, welcoming and beautiful home. Nancy gave us fantastic recommendations for local food and hiking, and of course, her blueberry muffins and sweet cat were the cherry on the cake. It was the perfect getaway we were looking for, and we couldn't have asked for more beautiful surroundings. Thank you for everything Nancy!
I had a wonderful time exploring this gorgeous pocket of Vermont from Nancy's lovely home. Everything was clean, comfortable, and cozy, and Nancy was a kind and generous host. Inspiring trip that brought me back to the area for further exploration the following weekend. Thank you Nancy!
Nancy was most welcoming. Her home is comfortable and it's a great location for attending the Marlboro Music Festival.
Peaceful, quiet and a wonderful host. Nancy was a very gracious host and was everything we could hope for. The place was clean, the bed was very comfortable and we could not have had a better night's sleep. You can't go wrong with this place.
My girlfriend and I had a wonderful time with Nancy! It was great to spend a few days in a beautiful house with a rich history, surrounded by peace, quiet, and tall trees, and with such a gracious hostess. We were swayed to come here by reviews describing blueberry muffins, coffee, and a cat named Trouble. We were pleased to find all of these to be true.
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 :)
