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 (www.putneygeneralstore.org),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 (nextstagearts.org), Sandglass Theatre (sandglasstheater.org), and The Gleanery (www.thegleanery.com). Putney hosts The Yellow Barn (www.yellowbarn.org) in the summer and is about a half an hour from the Marlboro Music Festival (www.marlboromusic.org). 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.
