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.

The aim today was to drive to the Green Mountains in Vermont - the **** sat nav we've hired likes to take us on long routes so today's drive was 6 hours long! This included driving the length of Manhattan in rush hour in heavy rain and getting lost in a car park. Luckily ...
... of its facilities, sharing sofa space with an over-friendly boxer dog! Back into the car and down Interstate 91 - a very pleasant drive for possibly our last "leaf peeping". The colours in this part of New Hampshire and Vermont are much more vivid, the leaves still not quite into falling yet.
And finally into tonight's stop-off at Brattleboro (a pronunciation challenge for the SatNav). Our motel looked fine and dandy, but behind its wood-clad facia ...
... there is a tremendous rush of water that starts to push up against their natural flow. The result is a fairly large wave that rushes up the river and it is often high enough for surfers to ride it. Apparently one Australian surfer purportedly rode the wave for 11 km up the river. Today there were two surfers but one fell fairly quickly and the other went about 1 km. The town has even built a seated viewing area for ...
Debbie and I have talked on the phone from time to time, over the 36 years since we got out of the Air Force in 1978 but...

Spending time with her was absolutely one of my favorite experiences on our ...
Walked across the car park to the 99 restaurant which had a great menu with reasonable prices. I had macadamia encrusted chicken with asparagus and rice, Wes a steak with carrots and baked potato. French fries and coleslaw were not the first options.
After dinner, walked across the road to the shopping centre to buy yoghurt from Big Y. It is a big supermarket which will have what we want for our lunch supplies tomorrow. It has long opening hours 7am to 11pm
