About Michael & Rebecca

As former residents of Putney, every summer we would return and rent a home for 1 or 2 weeks. We have been doing so for over 15 years and it has always been the most wonderful part of our year. This is the best place to live and visit. We were so excited to finally find our dream vacation home and are most happy to share it with you!

Michael & Rebecca purchased this house in 2012

Why Michael & Rebecca chose Putney

Putney Vermont is a very special town. The rolling hills and mountains create the backdrop for an eclectic community of artists, musicians, writers, sculptors, craftspeople, farmers, gardeners, shopkeepers and so much more. This is a friendly place with a real sense of community, where neighbors help neighbors. Within 10 miles is the larger town of Brattleboro with excellent supermarket shopping , and a vibrant downtown area with superb restaurant choices, bakeries, movie theatres, live music, book stores, museums, galleries, and various other shops and activities.

What makes this house unique

This home is warm and comfortable with every convenience. There are tremendous views, a wood burning fireplace. two brand new large flat screen TV's (living room and master) and a nice sound system. The kitchen is spacious with great appliances. It's fun to gather in the adjoining dining area and porch to enjoy conversations and meals. The living room is warm and cozy, and there are books on our library shelves for you to enjoy by the fire. Besides the views, there are great walks right outside the front door ~ down the dirt road with it's canopy of trees. There is a deck, garden area, fruit trees, berry bushes and 15 acres to explore with this home as well as hundreds of acres of adjoining forest land.

The Perfect Vermont House!

  • 5 of 5

What a wonderful and cozy home nestled in the rolling hills of Putney. Warm & cozy, our family spent 5 wonderful nights in this adorable home. The bedrooms were comfortable and homey, and each bathroom spacious and accommodating. We loved cooking every meal in the expansive kitchen, and spent evening curled up inside the comfy den. The incredible owners, Michael and Rebecca, have thought of everything with their hospitality and care during our stay. Instructions were organized and clear, and their home is more than described - it’s amazing! The town of Putney offers delightful local amenities and the short drive to Brattleboro or Keene, NH is a must. We will most certainly return.

My friends and I loved the house. It was beautiful and clean. The kitchen had everything we needed. The property is lovely with gorgeous views- morning, noon and night! We had a wonderful time hanging out in the yard with our dogs (who also loved the property!). We are already talking about staying here again!

Amazing, peaceful and restful.

The view was amazing. We actually did less hiking than we planned because the property was so enjoyable for the kids and the view was breath taking.

Great return trip to Southern Vermont gem.

  • 5 of 5

This was our second time in this lovely property -- for the Putney School's Family Weekend and Harvest Festival. The views are gorgeous! We liked the comfy beds and high-end appliances. The kitchen is well-stocked, and we really enjoyed the porches and wood-burning fireplace. It's only a short drive to the Putney General Store and several nice restaurants -- and the Putney School. Thank you!

Best Vacation Rental in Southern VT!

  • 5 of 5

This was our second stay here, this time for 2 weeks and we had a fabulous time. As far we my sister and I are concerned, this is the place to stay in Southern VT! Great location, quiet and peaceful, but close to so much! The amenities are fabulous with a great kitchen to cook in. We ate our breakfasts in the sunroom and our dinners outside on the deck. The caretaker brought us fresh greens from the garden! The large screen tvs were so much fun to watch at the end of the day when we were tired from sight seeing! House was very comfortable inside when it was hot outside! Already planning to stay again next year! Putney is fun to explore and Brattleboro is only 10 minutes away! Michael and Rebecca are great hosts!
