Met Larry at 0545 at the Bob Evans in Willoughby, OH, and instead of eating an early breakfast we decided to hit the road to get through some construction on I-90 before the traffic started up. Stopped at 0730 hours for breakfast at Denny's, then on the road!
Great weather, minimal traffic and construction. However, We came upon an accident shortly after crossing into Pennsylvania. A U-Haul ...

When I looked at the map, I found Rhododendron State park! My Uncle Tommy was crazy about these plants, he even moved to a remote town in southern Oregon, so he could grow them better!
We took one of our shorter day trips & toured the charming Town of Keene (which Roger wants to come back & spend the winter) then we drove on to the state park & a wonderful hike that began as a 1 mile ...

There wasn't time to change speed to accommodate. Good thing there were no state troopers because we were doing 50! During the drive we were talking about makeup, which I wasn't wearing, and was told "You don't need any, you're a natural beauty". I looked ...
More interstate. I have E-Zero pass this year. It is wonderful, why didn't I do this sooner.
I am taking a vacation from the interstate for a while. Unfortunately that means poor cellular service. I will get to Kathryn's tomorrow ...

Historical Traveler Reviews Forty Putney Road Bed and Breakfast Brattleboro
We have just returned from a two night stay at Forty Putney Road in Brattleboro, VT and had a wonderful experience. New owners Tim and Amy could not have been more welcoming or hospitable. Our room was clean, spacious, and beautifully decorated. The living room, complete with a billiards table and fireplace, was warm and inviting. The large yard,filled with flowers, trees and birds, provided a perfect view from the back patio. Our two breakfasts were plentiful and delicious, served in a very eye appealing manner, thanks to Amy's obvious culinary skills. We highly recommend a stay in this charming home just a few minutes away from downtown Brattleboro.
My experience staying at 40 Putney Road was fantastic. I was up visiting friends and it was the perfect "home base". I loved being able to sit in the garden and have my morning coffee before starting my day with the best breakfast I've had in a long time. Amy's breakfast parfait was AMAZING!
Then after a day of running around seeing friends I was able to hang out in the pub and have awesome conversations with Tim & Amy. Being there felt like staying at a good friend's house. The atmosphere was really relaxed and the house just had a great feel to it.
There just aren't enough wonderful things to say about the Amy & Tim. I just got home today and I'm already thinking of when I can go back!
A warm and welcoming home away from home
We stayed at the Band B for 4 nights. It was a wonderful experience! Amy and Tim were such gracious hosts. The decorations are tasteful and so appropriate for the French flavor of the House. I felt like I was in France again. The breakfast was delicious. Each morning was a fine dining experince. We loved our room and the little sunroom with complimentary soft drinks and water was a great place to read and relax in between exploring the area. Town was in walking distance. The patio and back yard were the perfect spot to enjoy a glass of wine or beer from the little pub downstairs. We will definitely stay here again next summer !

Kudos to Tim and Amy!!
Probably the best B&B experience we have had as family. My wife and I, along with our teenage daughter, stayed one evening at Forty Putney Road. Room was neat, clean, nicely decorated, and very comfortable....just like the website showed. The Inn is quiet, so we were able to read, rest, and relax after ten hours of driving. Tim and Amy could not have been nicer...great to see a young couple who understand what is important to a B&B traveler. The pub is a nice feature, and Amy's breakfast is something to look forward to. The restaurant on the river (Riverview??...ask Amy) just down the street is a real treat. Will be staying at Forty Putney Road again next month and looking forward to it!!!
Great B&B, Great Town!
Forty Putney Road is by far the greatest B&B I have stayed in. I can't say enough great things about my stay at this B&B, but here are some of my favorites:
- Excellent room decor (paisley & doiley free)
- Great location (within a short walking distance of downtown Brattleboro)
- Delicious food (breakfast was served piping hot on the back patio and the mediterranean plate at their pub was great)
- Beautifully manicured gardens (backing up to trails leading to the river)
- Great pub on premises with an excellent beer selection (try the Wolaver's Organic Brown Ale - it's fantastic)
- Two inn dogs (chickie & kodak were very sweet, unobtrusive dogs)
- Very cordial, friendly and informative inn-keepers (Thanks for a great stay Amy & Tim).
I would very highly recommend this B&B for anyone's stay in Brattleboro!
Great Bed and Breakfast and friendly Inn Keepers!
We thoroughly enjoyed our stay! B&B was extremely clean and beautiful. Innkeepers were very friendly and breakfast was great. The exterior and interior of the home and grounds were lovely and our room was decorated in beautiful period furniture.
We decided to stay at Forty Putney as it was half way to our hotel in White Mountains of NH so ...if you plan on coming from NY and need to stop half way, you will not be dissappointed in this quaint inn and town! We highly recommend Forty Putney and hope to visit again.
We will use this one again!!!
Had nothing pre-booked when we arrived here.
Lucky for us, a cancellation meant there was room for my wife and I.
We are from London, England originaly - but have emigrated too NB, Canada.
We were enroute from NY, USA to NB, Canada - and found this overnighter.
It is truly 100% in every way, we own a home that is also a licensed B&B - we were very, very impressed.
Lindsay and Lowell are the finest of the fine when it comes to the hosts with the most!
And if you are looking for a "pub" recreation, then they have a room adapted too just that aswell - reminded my wife and I of a small pub say in - Central London, England or Central Dublin, Eire.
This is a gem of a B&B, if you are seeking accommodation in southern Vermont - this is the one, no other!!!
40 Putney Road B&B is in a great location - I walked into town everyday I was there to either browse the gift shops, bookstores, or to go out to eat. The inn has a gorgeous back yard, overlooking the river. We stayed in the suite which was very nice, - I really appreciated the sitting room and the private bath. We had breakfast on the backyard patio each morning. Lindsay and Lowell are gracious hosts and I plan to return - hopefully during foliage season!
Don't go by the numbers
I find it interesting how many B&B's get their name. This was, at one time their address, by when the town renumbered it no longer was. It is on the main road but don't let that put you off. The room that we had and the ones we peeked in to were all well appointed and very nicely decorated.
We decided to walk into town for dinner but there was not much to choose from on a Monday night! We would not recommend the local Thai restaurant but on another night or another time of year there will be more choice.
Our hosts were lovely and the breakfast great. When we do our leaf peeping tour in 3-4 years, I would not hesitate to stay again.
