Attractive saltbox home in woods
average rating of 5.0 based on 14 reviews

Cozy and quiet with everything you need.

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I stayed here with our two dogs for Thanksgiving weekend. We were looking for a place away from holiday crowds with easy access to nature and hiking. This place was ideal! You can hike right out the back door to some well-maintained X-country ski trails (3-10K loops). We paid the extra fee to use the hot tub. Between that and the fireplace, we were cozy and peaceful the whole time. The kitchen is fully equipped. We had no problems making our holiday meal. I would recommend this place to anyone looking for a quiet getaway.

Pleasant stay

  • 5 of 5

We stayed three nights in this delightful house. It was very comfortable and was exactly what we were looking for while visiting friends in Putney. The owner, Dan, was easy to work with. We enjoyed our stay.

Cozy, Restful, Clean

  • 5 of 5

The cottage is located in a peaceful location with a perfect babbling brook. It was a great setting for some much needed RnR. We loved the wood burning stove, the books, games, and old movies that come with the house. The layout of the house allows for tons of natural light. We also were able to use the hot tub in the basement for an extra was definitely worth it! Highly recommend this place for those who need to unplug (no internet, no cell reception, and no digital TV) and unwind. We'll definitely be back! Thanks Dan!

Owner's Response: Very glad you had a great stay! Just to note that internet and cell coverage is possible but can be spotty. Free 24/7 high speed internet is available nearby. A hill behind the house tends to reduce cell coverage but it seems to vary by provider. DSL and cable services are not available but high speed fiber optic is scheduled for this part of West Hill Road in the fall 2015.

Great House to Explore Vermont from and come "home" to

  • 5 of 5

We used this house as a platform to explore Artsy Putney, and close by Brattleboro. It was Fantastic. The owner was great, and was great communicating with us. This house is a very nice and easy getaway. Fall was at its prime, and the house floor to ceiling windows allowed for a fantastic view of the fall foliage. Great House, cozy and relaxing to come back to after a long day of adventure. Close to everything, but secluded enough to feel like you're really able to get away. Kitchen is loaded with all necessary pots pans dishes for cooking and coffee maker for mornings, so just bring food or buy groceries at the local putney market and relax with a romantic meal and wine. (Putney general store sells beer/wine also). We had a lot of fun, absolutely recommend this house to any couple looking for a romantic getaway. Plenty of room, great deck and the wood stove is a nice feature. Only complaint was the 2 upstairs bedroom mattresses were very hard.

Owner's Response: I appreciate the very nice review and aim to provide a comfortable, quiet, high quality stay in a wonderful part of Vermont. With respect to the comment about the beds, the feedback I have had is that the beds and the house are very comfortable. To some degree, this is a matter of individual taste however I am replacing the futon bed in the second bedroom with a new mattress that should be softer than the existing futon. Thanks again for the positive feedback.

Lovely homebase to explore Vermont

  • 5 of 5

We had a wonderful stay in this attractive home. The house is well equipped. It's perfect for relaxation and to experience country life. Lovely wooden floors, a serene bedroom and peace and quiet.

Putney itself is a lovely village and the surroundings are beautiful.

Dan was very quick to respond to any questions. Thanks for renting out your lovely hideaway.

Wonderful Stay in Putney

  • 5 of 5

My friends and I chose to rent this house for a weekend getaway and had a wonderful time! The house was very clean and had everything we needed for the meals that we were planning to cook while there. We hiked on a trail that started just down the hill from the house, watched a few movies, and went shopping in nearby Brattleboro. This is perfect for a quiet weekend away.

Dan was very quick to respond to our inquiry and provided a ton of information about the area.

I'd happily recommend this house to friends and relatives.
