Forty Putney Road Bed & Breakfast
An upgraded kitchen and fresh exterior paint will help ensure the continued success of the Forty Putney Road Bed & Breakfast in Brattleboro. The improvements were partially financed through a $50,000 VEDA loan.
Built in 1929-31, the facility originally served as the Brattleboro Retreat’s Superintendent’s residence and was designed to resemble a French chateau. The building became privately-owned in 1983, and was converted into a Bed and Breakfast in 1992. Under the ownership of Innkeeper Rhonda Calhoun, the Inn is now ranked on Trip Advisor as the number one Bed and Breakfast in Brattleboro. A quaint and intimate property, the Inn has six guest rooms, a pub serving beer and wine, enjoys walking/hiking trails accessible from the backyard gardens, and is located within an easy walk to vibrant downtown Brattleboro.
In addition to an acclaimed breakfast service, a variety of activities and packages are offered at the facility, including in-room massage, golf, bike rental, and canoe or kayak rental, among other amenities. Future plans call for the expansion of special events and marketing the property as a destination of choice.
