Sample locally made, award-winning cheeses and shop for picnic or camping treats (gourmet s'mores, anyone?). The food trucks out front are great - we love Indian dosas and lassis for lunch from Dosa Kitchen.

Live music most Friday & Saturday nights, and weekend brunch (try the baked hotcakes!). *Check with restaurant to see current in-person availability

A modern take on the New England snack shack, Honeypie is a must-stop in the summer after a hike. Think burgers, veggie burgers, sausages, milk shakes, local beer - all with creative interpretations and local ingredients. Try the Ungrounded Coffee Shake if you need a pick-me-up.

Outdoor Recreation

Hiking trails, nature walks, and swimming holes
GPS: 422 Putney Mountain Rd, Putney You can catch glimpses of Putney Mountain from spots on our land. Drive a few miles up the mountain's dirt road to the trailhead (~10 mins). The relatively short and easy hike (~20 mins) summits at an epic spot. Bring a picnic. We love to watch the sunset here, but you must bring headlamps/flashlights for hiking back down in the dark. Would be a killer spot to watch a meteor shower! You can also continue along the ridge trail for a longer out-and-back dayhike. NOTE: Putney Mountain Rd is a dirt mountain road and may become impassable after storms.

GPS: 1200 Grassy Brook Rd., to access the Radford-Smith Trailhead (see small parking area and kiosk on your right). A good option if you want to spend a few hours on the trail. Leads to an epic viewpoint worthy of spending some time. You can even catch a glimpse of Tanglebloom Cabin - well, if it weren't for all the trees!

Easy, flat trail great for trail running, walking, or biking. Make a day of it and take the trail all the way into Brattleboro, and enjoy a drink or appetizer at The Marina restaurant located at trail's end along the Connecticut River.

There's a couple different ways to access this beautiful waterfall. Hike several miles along the trail at Jamaica State Park (mostly flat and easy, some uphill at the end - about 6.8 mi out-and-back); or drive back country roads and scramble down a ravine right to the falls. Hard copy directions are provided in the guidebook located inside the cabin.

This wilderness area allows hiking, kayaking, canoeing, and swimming. The beach area is small and fills up quickly (for such a rural spot) on hot summer weekends, but you can hike (all or part of) the 3-mile loop trail to find a more secluded spot to take a dip. A must-do for solitude seeking nature-lovers. One of our most favorite places.

GPS: 48 Salmon Hole Lane, Jamaica We like walking the West River Trail for something mellow, or hiking all the way to Hamilton Falls to make a day of it. The Overlook Trail is also great - brings you to a nice viewpoint where you can enjoy a packed snack. The Salmon Hole is a nice swimming hole near the parking area.

A short hike to a beautiful viewpoint. NOTE: Parking is VERY limited (roadside, 4-5 cars) and you should avoid weekends between 9am and 4pm. If the parking spots are full, you’ll need to choose another trail to visit.
