Bottom Line

Forty Putney Road is a small, riverfront B&B with lovely scenery. The decor is more understated than the classic New England style of big floral prints and four-poster beds, but it feels updated and fresh. A two-course, gourmet free breakfast is a highlight here, along with the on-site intimate pub and long list of local brews. No children under 12 are allowed at the inn, encouraging a romantic stay. Most rooms have cozy gas fireplaces, but like most B&Bs, the inn doesn't offer a fitness center or spa. Additional perks here include rooms stocked with free goodies like snacks and drinks, and an indoor Jacuzzi overlooking the grounds.

In Brattleboro, Vermont -- within walking distance of the downtown area

Map of Forty Putney Road Bed and Breakfast

Set in the hills of the Green Mountains, Brattleboro is a regular New England town, with historic buildings that haven't changed, numerous art galleries and antique shops, and locals who live for the outdoors (skiing in the winter and hiking in the summer). But, similar to Burlington, it has a slightly more liberal and bustling vibe. Known as a small art town, Brattleboro has a funky side and embraces the arts thoroughly. Every month the downtown area hosts "gallery walks" during which residents and visitors can peruse shops and galleries until late in the evening. There are also numerous arts festivals held throughout the year.

Brattleboro was formerly a mill town and today this city alongside the Connecticut River is still the commercial center of Southeast Vermont. Forty Putney Road Bed and Breakfast is located on -- no surprise here -- Putney Road. It has a waterfront location at the mouth of the West River, and is a 15-minute walk into town; some choose to walk, others opt for the three-minute drive and then park the car to explore the downtown area.
