Our Privacy Promise. We promise not to be all up in your...

Well, you know what we are saying. Maybe you've been to one of those B&Bs, or heard horror stories... Innkeepers that just won't stop. That want to tell you all about the history of their miniature ceramic teacup collection. Well, if that's what you want, sorry but you won't find it here.

When we opened Forty Putney Road we built the B&B that WE would stay at. Being "hotel guests" ourselves, we knew that there was a great opportunity to provide something as good as the best hotel, but with all of the awesome personal touches of a B&B (like awesome breakfasts with local ingredients, a huge library of good DVDs, and you know, a PUB).

We are as available as you want us

One of the reasons we have our small pub is that it gives us a place to be available to our guests, without hovering over them...

Want to know about the house, the area, our favorite restaurants?? We are right there and happy to talk all of that.

But, want us to leave you alone to be close to your partner? Done.

And then there's breakfast

Do you fear sitting down to eat at a big common table? Do you hate making small talk in the morning? You know what - us too!

That's why we offer a variety of breakfast seating options. Including private tables for 2. And come down anytime between 8 and 9:30, no "reservations" or ridiculous 5:15 breakfast times. We can even hook you up a bit earlier if you want to get out on the water or need to run. Just let us know.

We would say you can have it your way, but that's already taken so just know that at our Vermont B&B your stay is a private or as social as you want it to be.

See what others are saying about it over there on the right. Then give us a call, or book online (even our online booking is secure and private!).

What Guests Are Saying

  • Loved it! The inn was comfortable, nicely decorated, and had all the amenities. We stayed in the Ripley Suite. The bed was very comfortable, the sheets luxurious. The innkeeper was the perfect combination of welcoming, informative, and personable without being intrusive. The food was imaginative, well prepared, and delicious. The walking trails adjoining the property were just right for a stroll to the Grafton Cheese Factory without having to take the car. Centrally located for easy access to highway, restaurants, and shopping. Make sure to try the hot tub! We will visit again.
