Next, a tiny cabin, against our 11 acre property line, lives a young neighbor who raises chickens, and like most Vermonters, is willing to help when needed.
Last on our dirt road, are two energetic gals who have a goat farm, and amazing chèvre cheese. They welcome visitors, but please leave your dog home at Milagro if you visit.

Our stay was fantastic! We really enjoyed the house and the hot tub! Everything was very comfortable and clean and we even took an evening and made dinner in the kitchen- which had everything we needed. The town of Putney has a great General Store-perfect for snacks and other items. We also ate at a fun cafe, which I can't seem to remember the name now, but it was right in the center of Putney. We really enjoyed the stay and are so thankful to Doug & Jessica!!!
Staying at Milagro was a wonderful escape from the city. We especially enjoyed the peace and quiet, the hot tub, the wood stove, and the space to cook and eat. Doug and Jessica were available and very helpful. They were generous enough to leave us some tasty wine and chocolate. We would love to come back next time we are in Vermont.
Part of me briefly considered not reviewing Milagro, so we could keep it to ourselves...but that wouldn't be fair to our lovely hosts. We had a wonderfully relaxing weekend filled w/ a lot of nothing -- hanging out in the hot tub, knitting, reading, and tooling around town. It's such a comfortable place, that we didn't feel much need to leave. We did venture into town for supper, groceries, treats, and a little shopping at Swirl. It's really a great little place; you should go.
Had a wonderful stay in this quiet oasis! Doug and Jessica were super kind and generous. They were very responsive when our tiny car couldn't make it up the snowy hill (although a friendly neighbor gave us a lift and told us we could leave the car at the bottom of the hill) and throughout our entire stay. Milagro is such a warm and welcoming place, with a wooden stove, lovely kitchen, and artwork adorning all the walls! We took advantage of the nearby cross-country ski trails, local Putney Co-Op, tried a yoga class in Brattleboro, and enjoyed the variety of video games in the house! This was a perfect way to celebrate a birthday and we will definitely come back, it was so hard to leave! Thanks for a wonderful few days!
We had a delightful time at Milagro! It is a stunning and comfortable home and Doug & Jessica are exceptionally thoughtful and thorough hosts. We enjoyed a snowy weekend cozied up with our dog and close friends. Putney is very cute, but we never needed to leave this beautiful home. The light and views were perfect! We would definitely stay there again and highly recommend it!
Doug & Jessica's house is amazing! We were so glad we got to go to such a magical place for our little getaway. Life in NYC is a grind and a few days in their beautiful home, with it's gorgeous surroundings was just what the doctor ordered.
The actual house is cool, comfy, warm and covered with art. The hot tub on the deck is perfect to relax in, the wood burning stove is amazing to sit by and read a book, or hang. Doug & Jessica even left us a bottle of wine and chocolates when we got there!
Our dog, Trolley, also had a blast. She loved running around in the snow on the vast acres behind the house and curling up by the fire.
We would DEFINITELY go back. Still thinking about our trip.
Milagro is definitely a gem! The house is so unique and is perfect for a nice getaway. Doug and Jessica made everything very easy. They were easy to communicate with, left us all the information we would need in a binder and even left chocolates and a bottle of wine! We wouldn't hesitate to stay here again!
The rave reviews are true! My husband, baby and I stayed at this lovely house with friends in January. It was the perfect place to catch up, play some music together, and get away. A storybook country road leads to the artsy, cosy and light-filled house. The kitchen was well equipped with everything to make our feasts, and the two local food stores provided some really nice prepared as food as well as basic supplies. We especially loved the claw foot tub in the upstairs bathroom and comfortable window seat at the dining table. It's a wonderful place. P.S. If in doubt, take a dip in the hot tub! It's delightful.
I can't sing enough praises about this beautiful home. Book it now and look no further! Doug and Jessica were totally attentive throughout the booking process and made everything so easy and turn-key. The house is truly a gem.... cozy, inspiring, and full of every amenity one would need. And of course, you can't leave out the incredible hot tub, which we took full advantage of! We were looking for a relaxing and quiet weekend, and Milagro did not disappoint. There are also a ton of things to do in the area. I highly encourage hanging out in Putney and meeting all the friendly locals! We left with many new friends :)
Thanks for an amazing few days Doug and Jessica, we hope to return!
Milagro was so beautifully built - you can tell that a lot of dedication and thought was put into it. Every detail made me smile and served as a source of inspiration. We couldn't have choosen a better place to celebrate our birthdays.
Doug was very prompt with comunication and had great suggetions on what to do, where to eat. It was an immense pleasure getting to meet him and we will definitely be back. Thanks for everything.
Juliana, it was so nice to meet you and Greg, and hope that you'll visit again.
The pasta dish you gave us was delicious, and we especially liked the extra garlic on the garlic bread... We were thrilled to hear that you had birthday dinners at Fireworks - one of Jessica's all time favorites in Brattleboro.
See you the next time,
