Description

The space

Rent this charming and cozy 1 bedroom house in Putney, Vermont. A former train depot, this home is just a few minutes walk to the Connecticut River with boat launch for enjoying fishing, swimming, canoeing and kayaking. Gas fireplace and thermostat controlled heat, a great kitchen, and window seat to look out on the tracks. Comfortable queen size bed in a well sized bedroom. Twin size aeromattress and sheets available upon request.
There is occasional train traffic - approximately 3-4 trains pass by every day/night.

Wireless internet, basic cable, and washer/dryer are included. In the summer, a gas grill is available for use along with an outdoor fireplace (good for use year around). A picnic table and Adirondack chairs can be found in our backyard. We have a Keurig and coffee stocked so that guests can enjoy a cup of coffee and always supply some food treats.

We have a wonderful house cleaner who makes sure our home is meticulously clean for each guest.

A few notes about location: our home is perfectly located near the Putney town center and an easy drive in sun or snow - no long snowy driveways to navigate. We are close to the freeway with easy access to Brattleboro and surrounding areas. We also share are road with a paper mill, as well as a boat house with access to the CT river. We find it the perfect getaway from our busy city lives, without being too remote but if you are looking for a remote location where you won't see another soul, we probably aren't the right fit. We are walking distance to renown West Hill Bike Shop ((website hidden)) for rental of bikes, cross-country skis, etc. Also, walking distance to the Spinnery for those of you who love to knit ((website hidden))! The Putney Coop is a .3 mile walk or drive for groceries and other necessities.

The charming village of Putney is few minute drive away with great restaurants and lots to do. Hiking and biking in the spring, summer and fall, and snowshoeing and cross-country skiing in the winter. Downhill skiing is approximately 45 minutes to Stratton and 50 minutes to Mount Snow.

Apple picking (Fall) and Cheese Tasting ((website hidden)) are some of our favorite things to do. There are a number of scenic hikes including Madame Sherri's & Wantastiquest Mountain, Black Mountain and Putney Mountain. Great restaurants in the area include The Gleanery (our favorite!). The Putney Coop is a great place for sandwiches, snacks, beer and wine.

Just 15 minutes to downtown Brattleboro and just off I-91, there is tons to do in this small, rural town. Close to the Putney School, Yellowbarn Music Festival and nearby to the Putney Inn. Approximately 100 miles to Bradley Airport in Hartford, CT, 3.5 hours from NYC, and 2 hours from Boston.

Guests have full access to whatever is in the home.

Interaction with guests

We are happy to provide suggestions for things to do in the area, restaurants, hikes, etc but when you visit our home, it is all yours.

Getting around

Unfortunately, rural Vermont does not have great public transportation. Our home is uniquely located and one can walk to the river, Putney Co-Op and Putney's downtown area - all about a 10 minute walk.

Other things to note

A few notes about location: our home is perfectly located near the Putney town center and an easy drive in sun or snow - no long snowy driveways to navigate. The home is a converted train depot and we are on an active train track with 3-4 trains going by each day/night. We are close to the freeway with easy access to Brattleboro and surrounding areas. We also share are road with a paper mill, as well as a boat house with access to the CT river. We find it the perfect getaway from our busy city lives, without being too remote but if you are looking for a remote location where you won't see another soul, we probably aren't the right fit. Check out past guest reviews - most everyone enjoys our home, but we like to be clear about the location!

We live in San Francisco currently, but my husband grew up in Vermont and bought this charming old train depot about 10 years ago. Vermont is our favorite place to go, decompress and spend time with friends and family. I love yoga, cheese, good food, reading and running - all of which I can enjoy in ample quantity in Vermont!

We would love to share our cozy Vermont home with you - it is the perfect place to relax, curl up with a good book, and enjoy the outdoors.
