We just wrapped up a three-night stay at the Ranney-Crawford B&B. Diane and Arnie were excellent hosts--warm, friendly, and very hospitable. The B&B itself is in excellent condition and beautifully furnished. (Arnie made many of the pieces himself, including the bed in our room!) We stayed in Elijah's room on the second floor in the front of the house. The queen bed was very comfortable--we slept great each night. There was plenty of space to put our stuff, and to sit and relax. Although the B&B is on something of a main (two lane country) road, traffic during the overnight hours was negligible and didn't disturb our sleep in the least (though we wore earplugs just in case). Breakfasts were outstanding and varied each day. Diane is a fabulous cook; we had home-baked scones, fresh coffee/tea, and eggs, pancakes, frittata, fruit/yogurt cups, etc. No risk of going hungry! We were two cyclists and benefitted greatly from Arnie's thorough local knowledge and recommended bike routes. There was safe bike storage in the garage. The B&B is just 4.5 miles north of Putney, and ideally located for bike rides of varying lengths. We found the roads were quiet, beautiful, and generally well maintained. We enjoyed everything about our stay and wouldn't hesitate to return.
