Relax and recharge in our recently renovated Vermont cottage. Enjoy this perfect getaway with hardwood floors, fast wifi, a fully equipped kitchen, a quiet sleeping loft, gorgeous natural light, views of surrounding hills and pond, gardens, and your own private entrance and back deck.

The space
Our recently renovated Vermont cottage is your perfect country retreat and getaway. The cottage shares 2 acres with the main house, but is a separate structure and is completely private. It is the perfect space for your fall or wintry escape, summer vacation, romantic getaway, or artist's retreat.

Upstairs in the loft, you’ll find a quiet retreat with a queen bed surrounded by bookshelves and an extra long twin bed in the nook. With the window open, you'll fall asleep to the sounds of the brook and spring peepers.

On the main level is a fully-equipped kitchen, with dishwasher, full ovenwith propane stovetop, a countertop bar with stools, and a small table. The bathroom is just off the kitchen with plenty of shelves and a funky copper tub and shower.

Four steps down from the kitchen brings you to the sitting room, a great reading or lounging spot with full southern exposure. The bay window showcases peaceful views of the pond, woodlands, and our neighbors' working farm.

For additional guests, the sofa opens up to a generously sized single bed and the south facing bay window and cushion seat doubles an additional single bed.

For longer stays, you are welcome to use the washer and dryer in the main house.

Where you’ll be

Putney, Vermont, United States

We live in a gorgeous, rural setting yet very close to the rich outdoor and arts scenes that Putney, Westminster West, and Brattleboro offer. The cottage is located just 5 miles to downtown Putney where you’ll find the Putney Food Co-op, The Putney General Store, the West Hill Bike Shop (mountain bike and x-country ski/snowshoe rentals)

Check out our local orchard, Green Mountain Orchards, where you can pick-your-own blueberries, raspberries, plums, pears, peaches, and apples. They also sell delicious homemade pies and cider donuts. For outdoor enthusiasts, we are close to ski mountains— under an hour to Mt. Snow, Stratton, Magic Mountain, Bromley, Killington, and Okemo, and 30 minutes to Grafton Outdoor Center for nordic skiing and snowshoeing. Wake up early and be the first on the slopes!

We live on a paved road (no problems in winter or mud season!). We are 9 miles to the quintessential village of Saxton’s River, 10 miles to Walpole, New Hampshire, 15 miles to Brattleboro, and 13 miles to Grafton. Under 10 minutes to The Putney School, Greenwood School, Landmark College, and Vermont Academy.

My husband and I fell in love with Vermont's seasonal extremes, vibrant outdoor lifestyle, and strong sense of community... and we decided to raise a family here! We have three boys, ages 13, 11, and 4, a puppy, and two cats. We love to travel and meet new people along the way. The cottage and our house are located on the same property; we are happy to be able to share our space with you!
