Fall has arrived and the Vermont landscape is exploding with color. The forests and mountains are glowing with bright reds, yellows and oranges.

Brattleboro invites walking with its charming downtown, artsy shops and exceptional restaurants. Warmer, sunnier days also beckon nature lovers to explore the local trails. Challenging hikes can be found in the nearby forests, hills and mountains. However, those looking for a more leisurely pace, should explore the many beautiful walking trails. The Inn and Fortney Road, walking distance to the heart of Brattleboro, will be your serene retreat. Strolling our tranquil grounds and mature gardens will get you ready for more lovely walks. After a restful night, enjoy a gourmet meal in the sunny breakfast room. Plan a restorative getaway at our elegant and relaxing inn.
Shortly after purchasing and arriving to take over operations of this Inn, we discovered the most curious of things . . . a plaque? A grave stone? A monument? Most certainly we discovered a Mystery at the Inn on Putney Road! A plaque is defined as “an ornamental tablet, typically of metal, porcelain, or wood, that is fixed to a wall or other surface in commemoration of a person or event.” Most assuredly, what we discovered was a plaque. But the only writing on the plaque are the words “Daniel – 1918 – Frederic” and relief profile portraits of two boys that look to be about 6 and 8 years old. Who were Daniel and Frederic? Did they die from the Influenza Pandemic of 1917-1918? Did they die in WW1? Is this plaque even a marker of their death?
Fall is officially here in Vermont, which means it’s one of the busiest times of year.

Everywhere you turn, from now through October, the hills are lit up in a variety of colorful hues, from the crimsons and fiery oranges, to bright pops of yellow and green.
