The space

Guests will have access to our entire home.
This includes the use of the hot-tub, outdoor grill, and fire pit.

Our location is ten minutes from Putney Village off interstate 91 north at exit #4. We are in southeastern Vermont near the Massachusetts and New Hampshire borders.
Check our map at the bottom of this page for suggestions of activities and local restaurants.
Close to Brattleboro, nearby cross-country skiing at The Putney School. Cross-country ski and mountain bike rentals may be found at West Hill Bike shop in Putney.
We are an hour to the downhill ski slopes like Ascutney, Bromley, Mt.Snow, Okemo, and Stratton.
Closer, is the cross-country ski center at Grafton Ponds. Open-air skating is free at the Retreat Meadows, and affordable family skating is found at Brattleboro's ice skating rink at Living Memorial Park.
Locally we have great mountain biking, hiking, running trails, cross-country skiing, snow-shoeing. Also, locally crafted beer, cheese, wine, and fresh roasted coffee beans.
Nextstage Arts in Putney Village offers live music and film screenings.
Discreet, adult, clothing-optional river swims abound each summer. For example, one renown swim spot is named "Indian Love Call".
Caution: you might want to move here...

We have 3 neighbors. Our closest neighbor, a builder, renovated an old "Hippie home" about 100 yards away beyond our birch trees.
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.
Beyond the goat farm is a flat hiking trail that after 15 minutes goes into the border of our neighboring village of Dummerston.
Come see for yourselves...

This has been my favorite Airbnb experience to date! My girlfriend and I couldn't have been happier with our stay at Milagro. From the wonderful amenities to the thoughtful welcome gifts (wine & chocolate!), Doug and Jessica are the perfect hosts. The real beauty of Milagro is in the quiet and serenity of the surrounding woods. As Byron might have exclaimed, you'll leave Milagro loving "not man the less, but Nature more."

Milagro is just awesome. Perfect location, just enough privacy and it was a perfect place to get away from the city. You can do nothing all day and hang out on the hammock or hot tub, or explore Putney and the surrounding towns. Putney has a great food co-op, and a general store with delicious sandwiches. Both are a quick drive. Absolutely would stay here again! Milagro felt like home. The kitchen is well stocked, and you'll love cooking there.

We had a very relaxing stay at Milagro in late August, and couldn't have been happier with our time there. Lots of options for hiking, and close to Brattleboro for shops and dining. We also made use of the well-stocked kitchen. Would definitely visit again!

Our family thoroughly enjoyed our week at Milagro in beautiful Putney, Vermont. It was a fantastic respite for us. We had several outings (Putney Mountain, a climb up Killington, a bit further on...but most of Vermont (not to say much of New Hampshire) is accessible from this spot. Fine dining is available nearby (we sampled the Gleanery in Putney, other restaurants in nearby Brattleboro) and other parts of the state (Montpellier, even Burlington in the northwest) are accessible given that route 91 (though seemingly a world away) can be reached within ten minutes. But you can provision yourself generously at the Putney Food-Coop (and/or the farmer's market on Sundays, in season I suppose) and make use of the fully equipped kitchen. The house is beautifully appointed, with cozy corners for reading, a hot tub for soaking, a fire pit for evenings, a porch and a deck for conversations and enjoying the view. Once you leave, it won't leave you. I hope we will be back some day!

A clean, comfortable, quiet spot with a great kitchen for cooking and lots of outdoor opportunities at the doorstep. We biked the hilly dirt roads, hiked conservation land, and had an outdoor fire. We also hopped in the car for blueberry picking at an orchard and trips to town for ice cream and visits to the general store. Such a relaxing time and beautiful home!
