The Hickory Ridge House was an amazing experience. After driving for hours from Manhattan, there's nothing better than being able to relax at a B&B where you will find everything and anything you are looking for.
If you want peace and quiet, the rooms are as accomodating as can be, not to mention functional and utterly clean.
If you want good service, Jill and Dennis are great at making you feel right at home. Breakfast is served at your convenience, a bonfire is ready whenever you ask for it, home made cookies and coffee are always available (and delicious too!), and they are always ready to advice you on places to visit in and around Putney. To top off our visit, for example, they left us a bag with chocolate chip cookies and hot coffee for the road. Simply wonderful!
If you are looking for great scenery then this is the place to come to, also. My girlfriend and I were discussing during the trip the fact that the Hickory Ridge House seemed to be the best located B&B in Putney. It is very close to town, but not on the main road, like all the other ones, so at night you really are "in the middle of nowhere". Plus, the backyard of the house connects with a trail that takes you up to Putney Mountain, where you can find all kinds of fauna and flora along with some great views.
All in all, this was my best experience at a B&B and it was mostly because every detailed was taken care of in a very caring way. I think that was the key to a wounderful Memorial day vacation at the Hickory Ridge House.
